Full length roof rack for general use

I'm looking to get a full length rack on one of the black friday sales this year. I really like the Alpha Foxtrot racks but I've been trying to get in touch with them for over a week with no response. Can't even tell if they are still open for business.

Prinsu is my alternate choice at the moment. I'm not planning to put a tent up top but to use it to put gear up there once I'm at a camp site and to clear out the cargo area of the 4runner if I choose to sleep in it.

I saw a few Prinsu owners here who had mentioned some bending of the side rails. Is that still something to be concerned about? Is there any other rack I should consider in the same price range?

I'd suggest you check out Sherpa. They are active here on the Forum and Just put out an email for their BF deals.
Black Friday Sale

No affiliation just happy 4th gen user of their Princeton rack.

Subscribed. I'm waiting for a black Friday deal for a rack as well.

Thanks for the Sherpa suggestion but I have already ruled them out. They make nice racks but they have priced themselves out of the market for what I want as their rack is about $400 more than any of my other options, even with the black Friday Discount.

Your welcome. Since I put my rack up there I have not followed prices. I too had read about issues with Prinsu and some of the other racks in this space bending and needing to be replaced. I went with Sherpa for the thicker side rails, lead times, and customer service. I was not disappointed.

I'll keep an eye on my inbox and post here if I see any other BF sales that might apply.

RCI has a nice rack that uses similar mounting to the Sherpa. I ended up deciding on a Sherpa (mostly aesthetic reasons over the RCI) but the price on RCI is hard to beat. I purchased from Truck Brigade with Black Friday discount plus 5% off using code AND free shipping. Arrived Friday after ordering on Tuesday.
