Looks good- that's a BIG cargo basket up top! How much weight can you put up there? Do you feel it when taking twisties?

I don't know how much weight as I build it myself but just drove 900 miles with the 2 luggage bags you see on the pics side to side (each about 200-250#) and 4 large luggage so thats another 200#. So I would say at least 500 pounds spread out.

Also I did 6x6 as I want to try to set up my 6'x6' tent up there on my next camping trip.

A homemade version of this 😜

I would say thought, with 8 people in the car weighing about 1100# , 600# of weight on the roof and another 200# on the hitch with that basket the ride was sagging and every time I would try to do 80mph the ride would NOT feel smooth. Thats why I was talking about new HD coils

Well that's maximizing your cargo carrying ability!!! Even more impressive that you built it yourself.
