This car Doorstep is awesome. Until now I had to break out the adder when packing for a trip in our Sportwagen. But now, I just leave this in the car and anytime I neeb to access my rooftop carrier...voila, no problem. The Doorstep also appears sturdy and should last a vvery long time. I love when I find things that make my life easier. This is definitely one of them. Highly recommend.
