I guess there's no problem like that with yours?

My racks don't have that problem.

That is a common complaint with even the small DRZ-E top racks that are out there.

With my DRZ-E top and side rack system, the side racks support the top rack. That gives the top rack 4 mounting points.

I am currently working on a 4 point mounted top rack by itself. It will be the same 16.5" x 14.5" size and have the bungee loops and mounting plate for the RotopaX Pack Mount.
