We plan to use our Thule to take our clothes and whatnots to Ohio in May 2012 from Ocala, Florida. The Thule was not too bad to put together but a little ackward to get the rear hinges together. If you have an extra set of hands around use them and it will make it a lot easier. I'm 71 so I used my loving wife of 50 years. The unit seems to be pretty strong and should work good. It looks great on the roof rack of my 2012 Ford Escape. Take your time putting on the foam seal around the lip of the unit, and don't stretch the seal as you install it,there is plenty of material to go around the unit. I was missing a washer but I called Thule directly and they shipped me one out immediately! Great price also for the unit, Sears locally wanted like $400 for a similar unit.
