Unfortunately we listened to the reviews that said how easy the installation was with the straps that come with it, BUT IT WASN'T. We packed our car Christmas night in preparation to leave first thing the next morning. We spent about 2 hours trying to rig the straps they provided and finally gave up and used our own rope. It was more than frustrating. The rope did work though and kept it in place and secure. We did buy the non-slip pad which protected our car. The bag itself held a TON of stuff and allowed us the much needed room inside our vehicle for passengers. I would highly recommend the bag, however, cannot stress enough to pay a little extra and get the straps for cars without roof racks!! It will save you time, headaches and a lot of aggravation!!
