I'm a frequent camper and fisher, and I hoped this carrier would solve my storage problems. It was difficult to assemble, and very flimsy. Once centered on top of the car, it's difficult to open and like other complaints, does need a front lock to secure the nose. Additionally, the knobs easily strip while trying to tighten on the ubolts which presents a security problem. Seams are not waterproof despite the foam sealant provided. Overall, I've used my case a handful of times and I find it's more a pain than it helps solve my problem.
