Don't tie anything on top of your car. People will comment that it is a dead body, recommend a local homeless shelter or God only knows what. People should mind their own business, but they don't. Beware.

no never had that problem.

I guess the reason I've never had a problem with it is it matches the rest of my character. I've hauled rocking chairs, mattresses and other bulky items ratchet strapped to the roof almost across the country. I even used the mirror brackets to haul extra long lumber along with some hooks on the side of the bed of my truck. I've seen long pipe hung under the chassis of a truck as well. Usually when I get pulled over the officer's first comment is " Yep, I should have known it was you."
@highdesertranger

That's because people were afraid to ask if that was a dead body.
LOL it was 2x4s wrapped in tarp, and even I thought it was a dead body. I may invest in some kind of cargo carrier I can atttach to the back end or something. I guess what I did looked a little too ghetto...like the first picture someone posted. Smile

Now, I'm off to walk my dog, take a shower at my mom's house, and eat lunch with a friend among other things including re-organizing my car again.

Life as usual LOL

Well, then, Miss KnowItAll, how am I SUPPOSED to transport all those dead bodies?!?!
HA HA dead bodies strapped to the roof of cars.

what is it with people? I swear they do need to mind their own beeswax sometimes....ugh Smile
No one around here would think twice about people hauling stuff on the roof of their vehicles. Its a DIY city and hauling stuff on roof racks is common. It is also a lets go camping in the summer area so that means a bunch of stuff on the roof is also commonly seen, especially on Subaru Outback,Volvo station wagons, on minivans and on SUVs.

I guess it all depends on the local culture as to if it is normal or suspicious.
To the ones commenting about the "dead body" comment:

LOLOLOLOL You are too funny. Smile Smile Smile Smile

To the ones that are talking about camping:

Yeah I thought it was weird that they made a big deal of it this time of the year.

But I think it depends on the neighborhood. The only places I feel "at home" right now (not all for parking but just in general) include the following:

KWIKTRIP (WI C-store chain)

Walmart

The laundromat

And of course my mom's or friend's houses.

Update:

I stored the "dead body" in my mom's garage. LOL I'll post a pic in a min.
