    Default Frontrunner or Eezi Awn

    Same price for both, which one would you buy? K9 or Slimline?
    Vehicle is Mitsu Pajero Sport

    Okay. Looks like people are really tired of discussing the same thing again and again...
    I understand.

    Let me rather bit more.
    I saw both today. Eezi Awn is good but it looked bit light and flimsy to me, the aluminium pieces I'm talking about, like little thinner, I could almost twist them with my hand.
    FR, on the other hand, felt very sturdy, solid.

    Both are world famous, I know. Weight wise EA has advantages. Accessories wise FR.

    Sales person claimed EA can carry 750 kg of weight! The oak at FR sounded more reasonable,. 350 kg static weight, 150 kg moving weight.

    I'm reading other posts of this community while waiting for people to come with their experiences with either of them.

    Roof-racks? I have had a Frontrunner Slimline 2 roof-rack on my 4x4 for the past 8 years. Best accessory fitted by a mile. Extremely versatile and can handle heavy loads. Had mine fitted by FR themselves.

    Cannot comment on EA, although they do look quite decent.

    I commented in the Mitsu section where you asked the same question.

    Please stick to the weight limit as specified in your vehicles owners manual/ As CLEARLY stated on the FR roof rack and instructions. That includes the weight of the roof rack
