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.Read more ›
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
Not a permanent rack, but decent for occasional.
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.
