The return trip was the real test. Extremely strong winds, mostly 90 degrees to the boat, beat on it like a jackhammer. I don't have actual wind speeds but I'd put the gusts in the 40-50 MPH range. The Las Vegas area had damaging winds two weeks earlier ( 70 MPH, power lines down, etc ) so it howls through there. The high desert in CA was no better and we took a direct hit from a "dust devil" along with sustained high winds.
From Mona, UT to Victorville, CA - about 500 miles - the KeelOver took a beating. We stopped after 300 miles as the front "keepers" had moved out about an inch. Again in Victorville to make the same readjustment. I call that a successful trip. The mounting instructions clearly state to ensure the straps are installed to the INSIDE of the towers and this is why. I had 66" round bars so I had some slide room, but the straps kept the canoe in place due to their inside position.
I have a solo canoe and it fits perfectly on my roof rack (2019 Subaru Outback).
