Thank you for the reply's everyone.

My wife got into an accident today and we may have to buy a new vehicle now. (Not her fault)

So if that happens, I'll make sure to purchase a vehicle with a roof rack and get whatever yakima stuff we need for it.

She is okay we think at the moment. I'm just waiting for her to get here so I can take her to the hospital to have them make sure and get a paper trail started.

In Canada they don't really have any roof racks in walmarts or ikea's that I can see and probably for good reason. New products in this country are scrutinized very harshly before they can go to sale.

I definitely don't want to be THAT GUY and am very concerned. I have read, and watched every accident related thing I can find on kayaks and roof racks in the past 2 weeks.

On the upside I got a temp position today at a job that pays more than my current job for the summer as my main job slows down so I'll be able to outfit both vehicles properly with yakima stuff or maybe even custom. I gotta talk to my body shop guy to see if they do the installations and how much.

*Phew... Ive had one hell of a day.
