Overall, this is a good product constructed of quality materials and is offered at a good price. You can certainly find more sturdy racks out there, but you're going to pay significantly more.

I bought this rack to go over the cab of my F150 super crew cab and recently used it on a trip that involved about 700 miles of 80+ mph highway driving. I have a rack with 2 cross bars on my bed, but I needed the roof rack to keep the bows of the canoes from hitting the roof of the cab. This rack worked great with one canoe, but it was a bit tight getting two canoes on the rack. This is not a design problem, but is simply a function of the size of the product. The seller should consider offering a wider rack for larger trucks.

The construction is solid and works well for its intended purpose. Other reviewers who have commented that the rack is "cheap" or "flimsy" need to remember that this is a temporary rack, so you are giving up some quality for the convenience of being able to remove the rack in 30 seconds. And for the price, you can't find a better product. If you want something super solid, spend the $200+ and get a Yakima or Thule Rack. If you want something that you can install in seconds to carry your boats, this is an excellent product. You simply have to check the rack periodically to make sure nothing has come loose.

I always tinker with my gear, and I found a way to improve this product somewhat. First, the cross bar is in two pieces for ease of storage. The smaller diameter pipe is slightly smaller than the inside diameter of the larger pipe, so the rack has a tiny bit of play in it.

I bought the Pro-Series HTEXT Truck Extension and the Darby Industries 968 Black Roof Turbo Rack to carry a large canoe on my truck. The Pro-series HTEXT Truck Extension works perfect for what I need and it will work for other issues I had with a short bed truck. I have a Ford F150 Supercrew 2002 and the Pro Series fits perfect and is the best price I found.

The Darby Industries 968 Back Roof Turbo Rack worked good, but the strap is really cheap, so I secured the canoe to my "oh Shiz" bars in the back seat, along with the strap that came with the Roof Rack. The Rack itself is sorta cheap as well, but it did the job. I used it to go 500 miles round trip and up to 85mph on the highway and it worked like a champ

Bought two for 1500 crew cab. We also have rear hitch mounted rack. Carried 20 foot tubing 200 miles, no sweat.
Not a permanent rack, but decent for occasional.

I bought this rack to go with the Extend-a-Truck load extender so that I could carry long loads such as extension ladders with my Toyota Tundra truck. I like this type of roof rack because it straps on and I don't have to drill holes in my roof and bolt something on. It has a bit of a learning curve to install it properly, but once on the roof it worked well for what I needed it for. There was a bit of wind noise at highway speeds, but no water leaks into the cab during a rain shower. This is a temporary solution to carrying long items and not a device I would leave permanently on top of my cab. Overall I liked it, but I gave it 4 stars because it's not something that can be installed very easily alone. It goes on much quicker with another pair of hands helping with the straps. Works as advertised.

I bought this with the extend a bed hitch, works ok. It would be better if had more grip on the roof, just make sure you tighten the strap as much as possible. Perfect for the occasional in-town haul, but a little scary on the interstate.

I use this rack to transport a 15' kayak on my Dakota. The black support feet are a firm yet pliable foam material that doesn't dent or scratch the roof. I use a home-made rack ,at the rear of the bed, made out of electrical uni-strut channel. The combination works well for kayaks/canoes and the occassional long lenghths of lumber. If you need to haul 50 pieces of 20' deck boards or other heavy materials on a regular basis,I would look at something more permanent. Overall,works great for the price.

This does the job of keeping stuff off the roof of my car and gives me the ability to haul a lot more but... Looks ugly... Lol.

I am going to describe what you are getting because honestly though it is described, I was a bit surprised. This is made up of a extendable bar with a large bulky foam plastic thing on each end. The foam plastic sits on top of your car and then you hook a boom attached to a nylon strap through the metal bar then.... Open your doors and connect the nylon strap inside your car and pull it tight. The pressure from pulling it tight holds the bars to the top on your car.

Also, the bars do bend slightly pretty easily... We were hauling our double stroller on ours and you could see it was slightly strained... So I don't recommend anything especially heavy.

One concern I had was that the connector could break when traveling and hit someone in the head from force but, in our 4000 miles trip, they held strong.
