We have a 2021 S model with Slingshade and square hoops. Looking for additional storage on trips. Have you been working on creating something for our year model ?
Lets wake up @SlingLow the @ will send an alert to that individual.

Good morning @BradleyTavares . My racks work with the 2021 models which have the same hoops as the 2017-2020 models, but they do not work with the Slingshade which utilizes the same slots on the hoops for mounting as my racks. Sorry, but I do not have plans to configure them to work with that top.

@SlingLow thanks for your constructive information, now I understand !
We received our 2021 S 543 miles ago, tomorrow it goes into dealership for first checkup.
It's been obvious that carry on luggage is at a premium even though we bought the luggage for onboard storage behind seats. Ha, ha, we'll pack like Boy scouts and use laundromat.
Thanks again Slinglow

My luggage of choice until i know better, Now i have a tube t-top roof on my ss that helps hold these down. These are two nelson riggs 220's. I am going on a road trip tomorrow and will be only be using 1. i expects speeds of up to 75 mph and will
be doing some twisties. I will let everyone know the outcome on gas mileage and wind drag.

You got yourself some serious capacity there! One thing I noticed when stacking the luggage taller than I normally do is that sometimes I get wind coming forward between the bags causing some buffeting around my head. It's not every time and I've figured out that it increases when there is a strong crosswind. I was thinking about experimenting with a rear wind restrictor between the hoops to see if it improved it.

thanks for that heads up. i have two options if that happens, lay them on their side or just move them to the floor board. either way i still win.

I'm only interested in "SMILES" per mile?????

Ok time for an update. I reset my gas per mile calculator for this trip. this is the first time that i have done that since i picked it up. before then i was showing 29.7. during the trip the mileage went up to 34 with one bag, so i did the calculation the old fashion way and i get 32. ps you get more gas mileage in high altitude. as far as wind buffering, if there was any i could not tell . my range to empty is about 50 miles off, not sure if i should say something at the next check up or just be happy with it. So with one bag mounted i am giving it a thumbs up. This picture was taken just south of Lake City Colorado.
