Rear Luggage Rack for 2018 Voyager

Looking at the addition of this rear rack for my Voyager. I've gone through the older posts regarding cracking (and prevention thereof) and minimal loading and have seen the usual Kuryakyn and Cobra options. Is one preferred over the other or is there a 3rd (or 4th) more preferred option. Thanks.

I would prefer the cobra. Had one on my Voyager. Three years, no probs.

I used the the Yamaha STR-4XY62-50-00 "VENTURE". The base has a metal strap that helps distribute the weight across the lid and the angle of the feet seams to be perfect for the lid. If you need pictures let me know and I'll get them up tomorrow.

Love the beefy look of the Yamaha rack.

I went with the Cobra. It's one of a few racks that was designed specifically for the Voyager and it's one of very few (if not the only) that the top of the rack sits level, which should distribute weight more evenly to the top case.
Also installed the Cobra saddlebag lid protectors. They match the luggage rack, are low profile and eliminate boot scuffs on the saddlebag lids.
This is season 3 and they show no rust, corrosion or any other problems.

That's perfect, thank you.
Now I just need a pic of the Kury Rack mounted so the wife can pick which one she wants on her chariot.
