I bought mine to extend the spread between the crossbars on my Escape so I could comfortably carry two 16 1/2 foot solo canoes on top. It works well. I recently made a 3200 mile trip to Utah & back at interstate speeds with two boats aboard & had no problems. I did not use the stabilizing straps since my bumper has a plastic cover and the hooks would most likely damage it. I really don't think the straps would have made much difference anyway. The threaded bolt that secures the Dry Dock to the hitch receiver pulls everything in nice and tight. If you have a short roof line and your vehicle can accept a 2" hitch, then the Dry Dock is a good way to carry long boats more securely.
