Great for making space.

I use my MultiMounts with a 4" diameter PVC tube for fishing rods. Numerous 12 hr trips to Canada and back and no problems. Never had a strap loosen, always very secure. Use the Yakima Accessory Lock Housing ( http://www.backcountry.com/yakima-accessory-lock-housing) to make sure nobody steals your mounts in the parking lot.
These mounts have opened up a lot of space inside the cab of my truck. Its hard to transport 7ft fishing rods and four people with all their Boundary Waters gear inside an SUV, but the Multimounts solved that problem.

I have a 1998 Land ROver Discovery and fitting a roof rack to it was very difficult. The yakima towers were too short and rubbed the sides. So I bought the Thule Super High Foot towers. These towers are tall enough to clear the domed roof and the factory rails. They fit very securely to the gutter. I have complete faith in these towers holding up. Installation was difficult with one person so I would reccommed this be a 2 person job. The towers have to be pulled away from the vehicle while tightening the feet down. Again this is hard to do by yourself and if you're not careful the bars will bow upwards if things aren't aligned properly when being tightened. Once in place though the gutter feet really hold. I can shake the whole vehicle with the towers.

I got the 78 inch bars. They actually measured about 80" but I didn't mind because I wanted them long. They seem to be coated well and appear very durable. The bar endcaps did not fit very securely though. For peace of mind I put black aquarium silicone inside each cap before jamming it on the bar. I think the caps should fit better out of the box.

Althouh probably not encouraged by Thule, I have seen vehicles utilizing 3 and even 4 sets of these gutter towers and crossrails. Assuming your gutters are up to the task I would think the weight limit for 3 sets of towers would be 247.5 and 4 sets of towers to be 330. Of course the load would need to be evenly distributed. Just a thought.

I bought these for my '98 Land Rover Discovery. Yakima guide said they would fit. They do not. They are not tall enough to clear the domed roof. The vertical tower pieces also rub against the sides of the domed roof. As a result I had to return all my Yakima products and buy Thule. Thule Super High raingutters will clear the domed roof with no rubbing.
I'm sure these towers are a fine product, it would just be nice if the fit guide were accurate.
