Whispbar (or Similar Roof Rack) Owners: Will a Yakima Highroller Clear the Rear Hatch Opening Fully?

We currently have a couple of Yakima Frontloaders for our mountain bikes which attaches to the Whispbar in standard fashion. I can't mount them forward facing or the hatch will run into the gutter on the back upon opening. I can mount them facing backwards which isn't the end of the world but I was curious if anyone had the Highroller and can verify if this will clear the hatch. It looks like it attaches further back on the gutter in the front which will effectively move the entire thing forward more on the roof rack. I'm wondering if this allows it to clear the back hatch when mounted facing forwards.
