I just purchased a 2022 Defender 110 HSE. I was going to get a roof rack & ladder installed until an owner I met at the dealership told me the wind noise was terrible and annoying. His wife loved it, but he didn't. Is this common and should I pass on the rack and ladder? I mainly wanted it for the looks and would only use it occasionally.

Any time you add stuff to the top of the vehicle there will be noise and in some cases it can and will be bad.

Wind noise from the rack is awful. The ladder isn’t the problem. I added a small wind baffle using a couple of $3 brackets from Home Depot. The baffle was a spare gamavetti form our FJ62 Land Cruiser and fit well. Made a HUGE difference at highway speed. Should be a standard offering.
