This has probably been covered, thought it might be worth a bump. Looking for experiences from people with a GOBI roof rack and soft top. Was it worth it? Do you leave it on all the time? Is it a PIA when you want to pull the top back? I’d like some extra carrying capacity. Large items like a paddle board, kayak, camping canopy, extra luggage for trips.

Did GOBI meet your expectations? Is there a better alternative?

I'm going to pick up a used rack tomorrow and I can let you know in a week after how I feel

bumping this too! Wondering if there is a risk of premature wear with the soft top rubbing on the rack at speed. Saw one video where the guy put some piping insulation around the lateral bars to prevent rubbing.
