I enjoy my Curt rails. They have held up just fine on my summer of kayaking with multiple boats but there are two things I'm not fond of when it comes to this pair. The Knobs Take A Lot Of Turns: I wanted to take my rails on and off between boating trips and this alternative seemed to be the easiest to do that especially not requiring any tools. The turning mechanism works but let me tell you what I didn't expect just how many turns it would take. What time you save without needing a tool is made up turning the knobs a good 30 times it seems and that can get a bit tiring on the forearms 4xs. Too Much Bowing: I also don't like how much these rails bow with higher weights. I have roughly 100 lbs between 2 kayaks on my roof rack and it bows pretty well. That's wasn't expected for rails rated to hold 150lbs. Not only do they bow but they feel a bit elastic so I concern that on bumpy roads it might slightly go up and down. That wouldn't be an issue but I'm concerned the screws from my kayak holders might scratch/dent my roof. So I end up having to place pool noodles between the rails and my roof if I have more than one boat on my roof for safety. Overall they still have held up well and they do come on and off without a tool as described. But factoring the difficulty for a "simple" on/off and the bowing of the load capacity I unfortunately have to say these bars are average. Don't take this 3 ratings as a "don't get these" that is not the case and they certainly they do the trick. They just aren't "excellent" in the sense of excelling at all aspects.

The curt racks do not fit so I am sending them back. The bottom of the clamp sites on the roof and there is clearance between the rack and the the top of the side rail. That means there would be point loading on my roof. I specifically pick that rack as it indicated that it fit a 2021 VW Tiguan and unfortunately it does not. It may fit older Tiguans but not a 2021. And it does have a raised side rail but not as high as my 2010 Subaru Forester which I am selling. I have a after market set of roof racks for it already and do not fit the new Tiguan either and that is why I was ordering ones that fit. You should change your website to save others from this frustration.


Comments
This product fits raised roof rails only. So, if you have flush roof rails or a naked roof then this product will not work. We do not currently have any roof racks that fit flush roof rails.

First time customer. I was very impressed with the speed my order was processed and shipped and the way etrailer runs their business should be an industry example. The Curt Roof Rack/Rails fit perfectly, they look very modern, well made and blend seamlessly with my 2017 Equinox. I like them. Kenneth

Installing the " Curt Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails - Aluminum - Black - 53-3/8" Long Item # C18118" was a breeze and they worked as intended. I looked over the installation sheet that came with the rack, and since I had done this in the past, well no biggy it was easy. All you got to do is center the bars over the roof, tighten them to the side rails and off you go. After I installed the bars, I split open some 1" diameter foam pipe insulation from the Depot and taped it to the bars to provide extra cushion. I stacked 2-40lbs kayaks on the bars in my VW Jetta wagon and off we went. I recommend these to anyone. Thanks

1 year and still going, they are doing what theyre intended for. The rack is probably going to last longer than the car :.

I recently ordered these bars for my wife’s 2016 Toyota RAV4. James was very helpful on the phone and they arrived very fast. Unfortunately, the bars did not pass the test. After a 35 mile trip with my wife’s kayak on top (55 lbs), we arrived with the bars bent. Even after removing the kayak, the bars did not go back up. Because they were bent, the bottom of the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier kept hitting the top of the RAV4. We followed the instructions to the letter during installation. Needless to say, we returned these crossbars and went with the Rola Rail Extreme RBU Series Roof Rack. Much better experience.

You needed to properly seal all seams on the delivery box as there was supposed to be a "key" that went with these roof racks and no "key" was in the box. As of right now the product is of no use to me and cannot be installed - so, you either need to send me a "key" or I can send the whole thing back to you and you can either refund my money or start the whole process over again. Looking for your solution.

First of all, I have done business with eTrailer before and have never had a problem. Now I want to comment on their delivery update system: I have never seen a more efficient, sophisticated and complete play-by-play system as that of eTrailer. They are the most customer friendly company I have ever dealt with and I do a lot of internet business. Thank you for your service.

Fantastic! Arrived ASAP and easy peasy to install!. Went to the sporting store and picked up my cargo carrier. Very happy with these rails.

After about 8 months it bent for no apparent reason. We put a very light weight mountain bike GT sensor on top and one day it just was bent. I had to bend it back. Otherwise it's been fine. I like that it locks. It serves its purpose. I didn't expect it to bend from a xs frame GT sensor but it did. Maybe I should have claimed warranty but I bent it back.

The racks themselves are great. Light and sturdy. I only had trouble installing them because in the directions it didn't specify that I had to unlock the clamps to be able to install on my raised rails. Other than that I'm pleased with how the products looks on my jeep patriot.

I received the Curt roof rack crossbars yesterday and installed them on my 2019 Subaru Forrester. The mounting process was relatively simple although the clamping mechanism and adjustment knobs were a bit challenging to operate. Once secured to the existing rails on the car the crossbars appear to be adequate for attaching the Trunx rooftop cargo carrier I ordered from etrailer a couple days following the crossbar order. I plan on using this extra storage space for an upcoming road trip to Colorado from my home in Florida.

Subaru Forester

I wanted a set of crossbars that are easy to put on and take off as I will only need them when on trips to the mountains and to the beach - about four trips per year. These are the perfect bars for my needs and fit very well on the roof rails of my 2020 Subaru Forester. Shipping was extremely fast and product arrived in great condition.



- C18118
by:

On a highway trip, the rails started sliding back and forth. I tighten them down, but ended up pulling the nut (no washer) through the plastic. Was able to disassemble and add a washer, but I still don't fully trust them on the highway.


Comments
One of two things may have happened with this. Turning the key one half turn clockwise disengages the knob so that it moves freely so maybe it was not locked as thought or maybe the knob is stripped which is common if you over-tighten them.

I've only used it for lumber and small materials, but NO issues! My only complaint is that some of the hardware is rusting. I'll likely have to disassemble it to replace the Curt supplied hardware.



- C18118
by:

Had these for 6 months. I took them off only ONCE and discovered that all the metal had rusted. The screw for the plastic knob was completely rusted and when I unscrewed it for taking of it fell of. I couldn’t screw it back in as the screw disappeared from the slightest push on the knob caused the screw to collapse into the plastic groove. I live in Southern California and my car is garage kept. It rained on the car very slightly only a handful of times but I guess this was enough to cause it to rust. The cross bars fit the car well and are adequately secure but the knob itself is flimsy. If you want to buy this roof rack, put it on really really well and never take it off, not even once. Needless to say but I would not recommend this product.



- C18118
by:

Rails are nice, but the plastic ends are weak. After a year, one of the nuts has pulled out and won’t tighten and the plastic knob on the other end stripped. I’ve created work arounds to get by that are working, but when you are putting kayaks on your roof you really want something solid and I spend too much time worrying and wishing I would have something more solid up there.

    I wouldn't say that you're missing anything; the Curt Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails # C18118 are a solid, low cost roof rack option that looks great. When you look at them compared to something like the Thule Roof Rack with Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH711220 and # TH710401 the differences are extremely subtle and may not matter to a lot of consumers.

    The Curt Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails part # C18118 and Malone Roof Racks like part # MPG216 are both excellent options for a 2017 Subaru Forester.
