        Comments about ARB53 AeroBlade Load Bar Pair:

        We have used this on two trips both around 2500 miles round trip. Between trips we left them on our van for about 2 months because I was too lazy to take them off. While on the van, they did not appear to affect the fuel economy too much, and we did not notice a whistle when driving at highway speeds.

        They are a bit more expensive than the alternatives, but when you keep in mind that no fairing is needed, they are actually in the same ballpark from a price standpoint.

        I'd suggest them to a friend, and have absolutely no buyers remorse.

        We drive an '06 Odyssey, the 53" are plenty wide, we might have been able to get buy with the shorter bars, the longer I think would have hung out too much, but would have also worked.
