The question I have is how much weight does everyone feel comfortable running on them? Mainly I have mine for Ski's right now. I was planning on going on some camping trips, so I was wondering about back packs, tents and things like that on top so I can have more than 2 people in my jeep. My pack generaly weigs between 50 and 100 lbs for a 5 day camping trip. Hence the name the sherp. Given that the top is not metel will it stand up to that kind of weight and a long trip?!?!?!?!? any suggestions.
I can't tell you what my roof rack was carrying in weight cause I did not check but let me say, traveling with my two girls and wife, the roof top carrier was full (mostly clothes) and it all held up great.
