    @Daytonaviolet - thanks a lot for your help. Yeah, I’ve seen the specs, but one of the most important metrics isn’t there: usable length and width inside the basket.

    Answering my own question, I talked to Gobi today and according to them it's 78" between the front riser and the rear upper bar on a 5th gen 4Runner.

    Just now seeing your initial question. I went out and measured my rack and got roughly 78.5" from the front riser to the rear riser, and then measured 41" across from one side rail to the other.

    Thanks for this! The reason why I'm asking this, is that I'm still debating between a roof top tent (CVT Mt. Hood) and a ground tent (Oztent RV3 or RV4). I was hoping the ground tent would fit lengthwise inside the basket, but it seems it won't. I have not found someone who actually has this combination, therefore I'm going by specs.

    The Gazelle T4 looks a bit too fragile for my taste. I'm often in areas with high wind and I don't see how this construction could possibly hold up to that. For other conditions it's probably okay, but I don't want even think about sitting/sleeping in this in conditions I have had a few times with my ground tent.

    Just figured I would post here since there isn't normally good press regarding Gobi. I ordered my Gobi rack on March 15 and received an email last week stating they would be charging my card and shipping it this week. My card was charged this morning. I received communication without having to chase anyone there down and I fully expected a wait of 8+ months based off of this but 11 weeks seems to be it for me.

    Hey. Don’t be a Debbie downer. Rust is the new in thing. ;). Yeah I didn’t know I was moving to NC when I got mine. Now I wish I got aluminum. I tried changing it out but couldn’t find a buyer willing to buy it from me for a fair price. Haven’t tried since

    I think its more of a common sense thing than just it will rust. I use mine frequently, but I don't use it to haul rebar.

    Yep. If you do wear off the powder coating in a couple of spots, touch it up.

    It's not hard :notsure:
