  trying to understand but not disagreeing
  Posted by: bowler1 on Apr-06-13 8:33 PM (EST)

I am not necessarily disagreeing, but just trying to understand why putting a thule or Yakima rack on top of the factory rack makes it better. If they still have the same weight limit and my Yakima accessories will fit my factory rack, and I have enough space on my factory rack, then I am just wondering why the aftermarket rack is better.

Again, I am not saying it's not--it very well may be--I just have not yet come to understand why.

Not trying to be obstinate here--just want to understand it so I can make the right decision.

If there is not that much difference then I can't justify keeping the thule rack given that it is about $300. not sure if it is $300 better than the factory rack...but maybe it is.

thanks again
