I bought this for use on my Dodge Dakota Quad Cab. I'm loading my OK Trident 13 on it. This rack is really pretty nice; very easy to get in place. The little pump that comes with it inflates each tube VERY quickly. Definitely make sure your car has been washed, and you may consider putting something soft underneath it because it WILL scratch the paint. The paint on the roof of my truck is in bad shape so it doesn't bother me at all. I use ratchet straps (very carefully!) for the bow/stern through the scuppers. The smaller straps that come with the set (2) don't keep a good hold for too long, so make sure you plan on using additional tie down methods. All-in-all, GREAT product for those of us without roof racks. Would buy again.
Nice quality, slips around a little bit, good for short trips would not use on long trip. When it gets hot it gets very tight due to air expansion.
This roof rack is pretty nice. Works great and its easy to use. Only problem was one of the racks had a leak in it when it arrived but malone shipped out a replacement very fast. Only thing to watch out for is if your car is wide it may dent the roof in. I put this on my friends ford 500 and it made the roof dent in when I tightened a kayak onto it. Luckily the dent popped out when the straps were released. Great item if you dont want an expensive metal rack.
Worked great for about a month hauling my 13ft kayak, even at interstate speeds (had bow + stern straps as well). After a month, the tubes started leaking air, and almost fully deflated while driving and now my roof has some pretty big scratches in it. Might have just been a fluke, but I'm not going to mess around with another inflatable rack.
