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 wrapped the end of the smaller diameter bar with a piece of Gorilla tape, which resulted in a nice, snug fit between the two bars (though they were harder to take apart). Also, I covered my bars with rubber heat shrink sheathing (the kind electricians use to insulate and protect wire joints). I put 1 layer on the larger diameter bar and 2 layers on the smaller diameter bar so that the entire cross bar is now the same diameter. Also, the heat shrink covered the joint between the two bars since I won't ever need to take it apart. The heat shrink gives the bars a bit softer coating to protect your boats, and it also results in a snugger fit between the bar and the rubber roof supports.
As for the guy who gave this product a one star rating because the rack didn't "fit" his 15' boat: dude, that's not the manufacturer's fault. Go measure the boat and truck before you purchase a rack. If it doesn't fit, take responsibility for not reading the product description instead of flaming the seller.
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.
I paired this roof mount with a rear trailer hitch-mounted "T" rack in order to carry long pieces of strapping and keep my new Ford F-150 without scratches.
