Let's be real here, Thule and Yakima (and all the others) are pretty much all extremely overpriced for what they are. I have a bunch of Yakima mounts from all sorts of different cars over the years, and it was mildly annoying to pay a lot of money for aluminum extrusions or tubes.

I can understand that some towers are more complicated to manufacture than others, but yeah.... way overpriced. It shouldn't be a surprise that a company that doesn't spend 80% of their budget on marketing can sell a product for a fraction of the cost of "big name" brands.

To be honest, I was taken by surprise when I saw the price of an equivalent Thule or Yakima rack/crossbar. I didn't understand now something I thought was so simple in design could costs so much. Even the OEM crossbars were cheaper!

Good find! They look to be pretty decent too. (y)

Yeah, Thule and Yakima are way over priced, just buying a name.

Added Amazon link above for those interested. Worth the try. I'll get to fully test it out next month when i strap 100 lbs worth of cargo on top.
