My opinion on why these are special:
A - Looks good (follows the roof line)
B - Height (increases the vehicle height by 4.75" - my current Prorack crossbars increase it by around 4" so imagine if I bought a "rack" to add ontop - I don't think I would get in any Underground Car parks / Garage so I'd have to keep taking it off when not in use)
C - Designed to use existing vehicle mounts
D - Integrates well with the vehicle (aerial, tailgate etc all function fine)
I believe Urban have stopped making these as they didn't sell too well in the US. That's why it's not on their website.
Have a look at the eBay auction here (now ended due to GR44ND!) http://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/e11030...AMOTORS%3A1123
What I believe we should do is either approach Urban to do a group buy and ship them in a carton here, or approach an Australian company to build one the same (or similar) with a set of committed buyers lined up.
