 +Accessing the roof can be difficult without a ladder, and you'll have to be more careful about overhead clearance.  There are places like parking garages that are just too low for high roofs to enter.

 +Sidewinds will affect high roofs more than normal roofs.
 +
 +Objects loaded high up in the vehicle will affect handling more than if they were loaded low.  Consider putting only lightweight items up high.
