Used this product for 1, 1300 mile trip from St. Louis to El Paso, TX via San Antonio, TX which took 5 days during the first week of Oct. 2010. Encountered no rain and got up to speeds of 70 M.P.H. Had the product in a metal frame basket which kept it off the roof of the SUV. Needed the basket because the product was too long to attached to the SUV cross bars. Probably better that way than directly on the roof. No damage at all to the product and is in new condition except for the bug stains. Kept all hard edges away from corners and no hard edges at the top of the load. Padded the insided of the bottom with blankets because of the metal grid of the basket. Top load didn't affect handling.
