The car manufacturer’s advice is based on the roof load while driving. When the car is stationary, roof racks can carry about 4 to 5 times as much weight. It is then no problem to load the car roof with 200 to 400 kg.

100kg whilst driving at motorway speeds. Remember, this is the recommended limit not the maximum limit

Exactly what I was just thinking..
