OPTIMISING 4x4 storage space is a vital part of the touring lifestyle, and opting for quality roof storage not only opens up boot/tray space but it makes life so much easier when there’s distance between you and suburbia.
We’ve taken a closer look at a Jerry Can holder to suit the Yakima Lockn’Load Platform roof-rack system, as well as the recently launched Rola Titan Tray.
Yakima Lockn'Load Jerry Can Holder
YAKIMA continues to punch out top-notch gear for its highly regarded Lockn’Load Platform roof-rack system, with this new jerrycan holder the latest piece of kit in the ever expanding range of accessories.
The holder has been specifically designed for the Lockn’Load Platform and can be used to store 10- and 20-litre jerries. The holder can be used with either plastic or metal jerrycans and it features a robust powdercoated finish to ensure it is up to the roughest treatment when out bush.
Included with the kit are the holder and a ratchet strap. Another nifty design idea for this holder is the low height of the base cage; this allows for easier loading – always welcome when you’re trying to wrestle 10 or 20kg of full jerrycan up on to the roof.

Rola Titan Tray
ROLA has just released an improved version of its highly regarded Titan Tray. The all-new Titan Tray includes a unique design offering more strength and robustness than before, while retaining its light weight and aerodynamic profile.
The new version of the Titan Tray has a carrying capacity of 300kg (vehicle roof-load capacity dependent), thanks to a mitred corner design and reinforced panels. There is the option of using bolt-through Titan Rails for additional tie-down points as well as increased load stability.
The accessory channels mean you can customise the Titan Tray for different types of adventures, thanks to the ability to easily add Rola and other popular branded accessories (bike carriers, for example).
The tray’s slide-in mounting brackets can be placed inbetween any plank on the tray, providing flexibility to securely attach the Titan tray to most popular roof racks with an accessory channel. Add in anodised aluminium with stainless steel fixtures, and the Titan Tray will last years.
RRP: From $499 (available in four sizes)
