    Sorry, I didn't see this until now.

    On my setup, I added the extension to the megawarrior, so it's quite long, and sits above my sunroof, though there's still plenty of clearance to open the sunroof.

    I did this because the extension comes with a 3rd cross bar, and I needed to be able to get bikes and skis up there (though skis need a riser so they sit above the tire).

    Another member, Ribo, has just the load warrior and it was plenty big for a tire, but not much else.
    You can see his here:

    As for wind noise, it's been a while now, but I recall that wind noise was reduced significantly by adding the sunroof wind deflector.
    Since removing the basket, I didn't noticed any reduction in wind noise.

    The setup is solid; I've had no issues at all with the rack itself, however, I'd recommend you get a can of plasti-dip for the yakima spare tire carrier, and coat the hook bolt and the padlock.

    Hi Batpot!

    Just saw a picture of your Rav4 from the Aftermarket Wheel thread (your TSW Donningtons) and really like the YAKIMA Loadwarrior for your 5th wheel. What is it like for highway speed wind noise? What would you rate its quality and would you recommend it to someone else? I am about to drop the hammer on a pre owned RAV4 Sport with S.A.P. (rear tire delete) and would like to look at alternative options to the run flat tires.

    Thanks!

    Cameron
