We haven't received it yet. It is supposed to be in within the next two weeks. Based on research I've done, they are telling me I will not have to modify anything. We have a vacation planned in the middle of July and intend on using it then. It will be about a 10 hour drive south to Orange Beach, so my intention is to give it a try out locally before using it on the trip.wamiller said:
Are you happy with the Space Cadet? Did you have to modify anything to put it on the Acura rack?
Hi Bef,bef said:Ghost,
Did you balance the beams across the racks so that they stuck out more in the back or did you try to center the beams across the length of the MDX?
In an earlier post I asked if anyone tried transporting a fiberglass ladder on the roof and some said that the torque may rip the racks off the roof.
Since I haven't/don't really use the rack, I'm thinking about moving the racks to the single bolts in the front and the back to increase the distance between them when I want to transport long items such as ladders and beams.
I just purchased a Thule Evolution 1600 with the adapter kit and took it on a trip from Memphis to Santa Fe, NM. The 1600 works like a champ and there is no problem with the rear hatch opening fully. The 1600 does sit on top of the antenna ever so slightly, but it didn't hamper performance at all.wpf said:
Does the rear hatch open fully with the Thule?
Yes, the rear hatch definitely opens. The basket is less than 4 feet long, so it starts just behind the moonroof opening and ends at about where the antenna is located.wpf said:Louise,
Does the rear hatch open fully with the Yakima?
