very nice unit. Packaging was loose and box not put properly together . Good unit for the money but I thought shipping charges were excessive over UPS rates.

After looking all over for a decent priced rack for the top of my Suburban, I deceived to purchase this one because of my budget. It was half the cost of the next closest that would suit my needs. I purchased it with 2 additional 24" add on baskets making the total length almost 7 feet.. I was expecting a cheaper less durable version then what I received. The strength, quality, and over all appearance matches the $800 model a buddy bought. I am very happy with it so far as I have loaded almost 400lbs of camping gear up there and it worked better then expected, no issues at all. Very pleased with my purchase and would recommend to anyone looking to put a rack on top of their vehicle.
