Default Boot racks

Am thinking of going on a touring holiday next year in France (and perhaps something else before that) and conscious that if you take the tonneau that immediately takes up space when you store it and there's not much room left in the boot for a week or so away.

Anyone got a luggage rack for the boot? Do Honda make one? Any experiences with them?

I've found www.roofrackshop.co.uk which has one to fit the 'S'. Just not sure what to do......

Many of us use one of the Fapa models, either the FP201 or the FP220 (unispider a or b respectively)

Check out http://www.fapa.it/eng/index.php or http://www.roofbox.co.uk/unispide.html for details.

AquilaEagle has a pic which shows both types of rack fitted to an S. In the meantime, here's my car with a 201 fitted.



Any chance of adding boot racks to the FAQ, as the subject seems to come up quite often?

Here's a link to a very long thread on boot racks. I found it using the search facility. https://www.s2ki.com/forums/index.php?showt...&hl=fapa&st=100

Cheers guys - just out of interest, what's the difference? Can't see any difference between the two pics.

The 220 is bigger than the 201. 220 on silver, 201 on black.

Do you reckon I could fit a pair of wheels on one of these racks?

Groova, is that what you've got on your rack?

It's a kick drum from my drum kit. The weight limit for the rack is 10kg, so two wheels is a non-starter I'm afraid. You'd have to get a tow bar and trailer like AE if you want to transport wheels around.

Best bet for you would be to remove the passenger seat (if your race rules allow) and stack them up there somehow.
