You literally need no tools to install this cargo box. It is bigger than any other I have seen on the road, yet it is stable riding on the roof. I don't plan on leaving it attached year round, only for travel and camping trips. The good news is that is as easy to take off as it was to install. It works for me.
Looks at home on my car.
I took my time during installation. After all, being male, I tend to assume things and check t he instructions if something goes wrong. But the quality of the parts and constructions impressed me and it looks great. They are silent when I am driving with nothing else on the roof. I plan to carry my 18' canoe on my Scion xB from New England to Florida.
Great for Camping and Shade
I purchased this ARB awning with the intent to mount it on the roof rack of my vehicle. It came with very quick shipping to my door in a very sturdy package. I got some hardware from a local hardware store to mount it up as the included hardware would not have worked. It mounted up easily and securely to the roof rack. Once mounted I was able to easily set it up by myself and once it was set up it was secure and built well. I will be using this awning many times for camping and more!
