6 years and happy!
Review by Vickie Posted on July 7, 2016I'm reinstalling mine onto the new subaru. All the parts moved easily from one car to the other. And!!! I still have the keys. I keep the kayak carrier on the car all year - as a North Idaho resident, I'm very impressed. Love it!

Review by Scott Posted on August 28, 2015Consider this a mixed, but positive review. I've owned two roller/saddle systems for years, and overall they work very well.

I paired them with a Mako Aeros and the boat stayed solidly in place with no give or denting on the underside for 600 windly miles. I am very satified.
