I bought this product because I was moving to the East Coast and needed more space. It fit perfect on top of my Subaru Forester, the only issue was that I could only use one set of straps because there are no openings on the sides of the car top carrier- so I had to go through the car/windows to secure it side to side. To protect the top of my car and keep it from any possible sliding, I bought the rubberized shelf liner at the dollar store, worked like a charm. I had everything up there for 5 days, trav..
Loved this item. We were going on a 12 hour trip, and needed more cargo space. We were very apprehensive as the vehicle we were putting it on does NOT have a roof rack. But, it worked out beautifully. The only change we made in attaching, was to use ratchet straps. This made securing it easier, and it stayed put.Also, I was worried about the straps going through the car, hanging too low - no problem what-so-ever!!Definitely worth the expense, and very roomy - it worked out great with my Toyota Camry.
