Take a look at www.dolium.com.au
Their racks are made in South Africa and are very good.

Had no probs with mine. Been up & down the East Coast and accross Australia. Not a hint of drama. They are pricey but build quality is great. I have climbed over them many times (100+ k's).
Like any roof rack try and put the bars at A pillars and strong points of the roof. Space out the bars to allow even load over all sections of the basket and you should not have any dramas.
Normaly run a Michelles Sacs Roof bag with 3 - 4 swags chairs and other lighter/bulkier gear.

Cheers

I have the Rhino with flat lengthwise panels - about 6' long. Very strong, lightweight. Only problem I had, were some of the bolts came loose. I put a tiny bit of Loctite on them and new spring washers and the problem seems to be solved.

Previously I had an ARB steel roofrack which was ridiculously heavy.

Cheers,

Willie
