Had the panels...but now the shelf holds my towels, blankets, camping air mattress, and 2 innertube rafts for floating in the lake. Also a great place to put stuff when you're sleeping in the back!
Great work fellas. Side panels and top shelf really serve to maximize space.
Impressed with how the items were packaged, which arrived undamaged, so kudos to whomever did the packing. All the items appear very well made, and the finish looked awesome. High quality materials and coating. Only complaint (sort of) was i didn't receive any installation instructions for any of the three items, but there is a video that helps with that. For the rear side panels and shelf, the video should be more clear on which way the shelf brackets (two on each end) should face when mounting to the side panels. Silly me i had to undo them and put them in the correct their orientation in order to line up with the holes on the shelf. All in all, i am very pleased with how they turned out, and are sturdier than i expected. Thanks Rago for making such a Great Product.
Just got to figure out what to mount to them now ;o)
First of all, I love the look and functionality of the panel. That being said, I've had LEGO sets that were easier to put together. This thing is heavy...but it is ROCK SOLID! I thought maybe it should have been made of 2 pieces of aluminium, which would have made things easier for assembly, but I see why it is made of steel...you can load all types of recover gear on it and it won't flex or rattle. More importantly, my two 100 lb. dogs still fit nicely in the back, under the shelf.
