Mercedes Benz SLK Luggage Rack

We stock two types of luggage racks for the SLK, The Summer 142 luggage rack fits the R170/R172 and our own design of Revo Rack fits all SLK's and the new SLC.

The unique boot-bag also fits the Mercedes Benz SLK see below.

Revo Rack : Precision engineered aluminium & magnesium lightweight rack for all SLK models £229.95

Unique design of ultra light weight luggage rack (1.6kg). No metal touches your SLK's boot lid, so paint damage is impossible. With the 3-4mm panel gap between the rear wing and boot lid fitting a traditional rack that clamps to the boot edge is almost impossible. The design of this rack allows it to fit in under 30 seconds, no bolts, no brackets, no straps, no hassle & no paint damage.

Revo Rack uses vacuum cup technology to secure to your SLK. The rack sits on three 115mm vacuum cups these are rated as being able to hold an 18kg load each. These can in theory hold a 54kg load. Vacuum cups are not the same as suction cups they are much much stronger and were developed in the late 1960's to hold film camera's to cars, Top Gear and The Grand Tour still use them today.

mercedes slk luggage rack vacuum cup details

Vacuum cups employ the force of atmospheric pressure to grip a surface: When a vacuum exists between the cup and the surface on which it is attached, the weight of Earth's atmosphere holds the cup in place with incredible force.

Unlike suction cups that produce a vacuum as they pull away from the surface, Revo-Racks vacuum cups use a hand-actuated pump to efficiently remove air from between the rubber pad and the attaching boot/trunk lid thus creating a much more reliable hold. Because the full face of the pad is brought into contact with the boot/trunk lid, distortion is reduced, allowing the cup to be used with very little risk of damage.

  • Rack Frame Measures 900x 420mm

  • Sits 75mm off the boot lid

  • Can be fitted with the hoop at rear or front of boot lid

  • Can carry 20kg-25kg

  • Fitted and removed in seconds with no tools

My name is Fred Taggerty, I recently purchased one of your boot bag vacations. I have travelled from Scotland to Turkey with it. It has done a fantastic job, been through rain and snow no problems at all, everything was clean and dry. Easy to remove and put back on at all the stops, just like a big holdall...great invention, my girlfriend would not have managed half her stuff (hairdryers, shoes, bags etc...) without it...  feel free to use this email in your testimonials... All the best for the future. 30.4.13


hi  I just wanted to say how happy we are with our purchase ! We drove 3500km for a great holiday which was only possible because of our boot-bag ! I contemplated replacing my car until I found your website! We drove through all weather in our Smart Roadster from sunshine to snow and the contents were nice and dry. The bag is securely fastened at speeds and is quickly positioned and removed !  Daniel Gatt 10.3.13

Customer Feedback on boot-bag

Mercedes Benz SLK Luggage Boot Racks testimoniaHi Here's one of the photos taken at uluru/ayres rock northern territory Australia. We did 12,000 km in 6 weeks in all kind of conditions from start up a very cold and chilly -4 c when we left central NSW to a rather stuffy hot and humid 36 c temperature in kakadu park northern territory plus the dusty dirt tracks of the outback central Australian roads.

Good news too as the boot bag never let us down at any time. We travelled in harsh conditions dust, rain wind and best new of all it held rock steady in the territories open speed limit section at 220 kph.  Julia  10.8.15


Mercedes Benz SLK Luggage Boot Racks testimoniaWe have just returned from 2000 miles of roof down driving in France and would like to thank you for an excellent product. The bag fitted in minutes and never moved, what a great design and so easy to remove at the end of the day. To raise the roof on our MX5 Roadster Coupe all we had to do was slacken two of the straps, move the full bag 2 inches backwards and then operate the roof, very easy. Many thanks  John B 5.7.11



Mercedes Benz SLK Luggage Boot Racks testimoniaThanks for sending the boot-bag so promptly Liza. We were really impressed with it Ė it survived a torrential downpour on our trip down to Le Mans, and it suited the car quite well (see photo)! Canít believe I didnít think of this idea years ago when I was driving around in an MG Midget! Chris 17.6.11
