Don't Worry, We Have A Spare
I bought the rack system at Sam's Outfitters in Keene NH. The guys were great. They installed the racks on my wife's car in about 15 minutes. All I did was the final tower tightening. I'd recommend the racks and Sam's anytime.
Site is easy to use
The installation was a bit more time consuming than I expected, but well worth it. I thought the written instructions were excellent and better than some of the video instructions. Yak seems to have improved he strap and all parts fit my 2008 Ford Escape perfectly. My Ford came equipped with Factory rails and cross bars. The cross bars were getting pretty dinged up so I bought the Yak kit to fit my rails. After removing the factory cross bars I installed the Yak kit. The cross bars are a huge improvement over the old ones and I think the Yaks are actually quieter.
I imagine the idea of having a single type tower that fits all side rails is appealing, but I don't think it works. I purchased the Yakima Timberline because it's what is recommended for my 2013 Sienna. But it really doesn't fit the vehicle. It doesn't hug the bars and it definitely doesn't form to them. There are gaps and most of the tower is not in contact with the bars. Hopefully other people have better luck.
