The Hatchback special was originally a custom rack for the Keiffers. But it makes so much sense we decided to include it in our stock inventory. Vbars should be centered on your crossbars (front to back). With a Hatchback or short SUV, you can’t center the bar without hitting the tailgate when opened. Moving it forward several feet makes it unstable and puts all stress on the front cross bar. So, we reduced the overall length of our detachable Vbar to 7 feet with the ends in. We then lengthened the end pieces from 5 inches to 9 inches. What you are left with is a bar of just 5.5 feet on the car that expands to 7 feet with ends in. Not long enough for a 21 foot boat? Ask Wesley Echols (surfskiracing.com) He has been using 6 foot Goodboy racks only for years.
This is nothing more than a modified Detachable rack. Shipping is a flat rate of $40 for the contiguous US or items can be picked up locally.
