Why would I need a Nelson Tie-Off Kit? Is the Nelson unstable when hauling?

Most people don't need it. The tie-off kit is only used increasing the weight limit for some accessories like our kayak mounts or for off-road use. Out of the box, each Nelson is rated for use on 'improved roads" (dirt roads with wash boards etc.).
