Yakima, Thule, Rhino ... any brand.
Any of you have experience with them?

Opinions? Suggestions?

Prob'ly a law ageen' it, but I likey.

 

Give em' a six pack of mountain dew, close the lid, and schedule a stop in about 45 minutes.

 

Might want some ventilation holes. And maybe a bucket. Jes' sayin.

Those you've listed are good. I've had several brands, but like as not the newer models are vastly different from those I've used the past.
I don't know your purpose, so my cautions are of a general nature:

They're all noisy at high speeds.

Mileage loss a real hit to the wallet.

If you're heading into wet weather and carrying anything that might experience water damage, wrap everything inside with a tarp.

Noting made of plastic provides anything akin to security for valuables.

Note the weight restrictions. There's nothing that'll make your day like crushing your rack denting your roof.

Given multiple bad experiences with rooftop carriers, I now use a hitch/bumper carrier whenever I need to move anything too bulky for the cargo deck (like the mother-in-law).

Just drill a few holes in the bottom. Then you got drainage, and ventilation. Just don't drive with the windows open.

I agree. The hitch carrier racks are more secure although they can block tailgate/rear door depending on the application.
