  • Roof Rack Crossbars for 2014 Subaru Forester with Factory Raised Rails

I recommend going with the Rhino Rack roof rack system, which includes the following parts: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA118S-2 Rhino-Rack SX Series Leg Kit # RRSX005 These roof rack crossbars have an elliptical shape which will make them very aerodynamic and help reduce drag and cut down on wind noise. I have included an installation video of this roof rack system...

  • Kayak Carrier with High Weight Capacity to Carry a Hobie Oasis Tandem Kayak
  • I have a solution for you, but the Yakima Rack part # Y04073 that you referenced has an 80 lb capacity that I can't recommend you exceed with the weight of your 89 lb Hobie Oasis carrier. Check out the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier # S510. This rack has a 99 lb capacity and can fit virtually any cross bar style. I attached a review video for more info. It looks like you may also have a 2013 Toyota Prius c, for a roof rack confirmed to fit your vehicle and would do well to carry...

  • Recommended Roof Cargo Basket for a 2015 Honda CRV with OEM Crossbars and Sunroof
  • The roof cargo basket I would recommend for your 2015 Honda CRV is the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070. The basket attaches to most crossbar configurations with universal mounting hardware. This cargo basket is 44-inches long and 39-inches wide. The weight capacity of the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070 is 140 pounds, but always check your owners manual to confirm your maximum roof weight capacity. Don't exceed the lowest weight listed. I have included a FAQ for you as well.

  • Roof Rack Options and Ski/Snowboard Carrier for 2013 Nissan Murano
  • The Yakima FatCat Locking Ski/Snowboard Carrier isn't necessarily a vehicle specific item. It will clamp to a roof rack that's mounted on your Murano. It is compatible with the factory roof rack, if your Murano is equipped with one. If you have no roof rack or side rails on your roof (a bare roof), you'd start by installing a roof rack consisting of: 58 inch crossbars, part # Y00409 Vehicle Specific Q6 Q clip, part # Y00606 Vehicle Specific Q116 Q clip, part # Y00716 Q Towers,...

  • Would the Yakima Skybox 21 Would fit and Clear Rear Antenna of 2014 Nissan Pathfinder
  • To determine if the Yakima Skybox 21 would clear your rear antenna without having to remove it or to see if it would allow you to open your hatch with the box installed you will need to take one measurement. Measure from the center of the front back to the hatch seam on the roof of the vehicle. If that distance is 57 inches or greater then the Yakima SkyBox 21, # Y07184 , will fit. To achieve the maximum clearance, you may need to adjust the bars forward (if they can be adjusted)...

  • How to Carry 2 Heavy Kayaks with a 2015 Subaru Outback
  • The only solution I can recommend for you that will allow you to transport 2 kayaks that weight 92 lbs each would be to go with a Yakima Rack and Roll trailer # Y08106 with the tongue extender # Y08109 which is needed for the length of your kayaks. The roof capacity of your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon isn't high enough for what you are trying to do so I can't recommend anything that would allow you to exceed this figure. First let's start with a hitch. For that you will want the Hidden...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Carrier for a 2007 Pontiac G5 with Rear Spoiler
  • I have seen a few different spoilers on Pontiac G5 vehicles and based on what I have seen the Yakima KingJoe Pro 3 # Y02625 will not work well with your G5. I recommend a rack that has more reach, the Hollywood Racks Expedition # HRF6-3. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. For a carrier that is sure to fit go with the Over-the-Top rack, # HRF2-3. This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it...

  • I checked with Yakima and found that the Skybox 21, # Y07184, is listed as a fit for your 2008 Honda Pilot with factory crossbars. I have included a link to a video review of this cargo box to the right for you. I do not know what the other bars you have are but if they are the same size as the factory Honda bars then the box would fit those too. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Honda for the roof and roof rack capacity and do not exceed it. Using a tire step such...

  • We have several 2-bike bike racks that are a confirmed fit for your 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT. I have included a helpful link to all of the 2-bike trunk mounted bike racks that fit your vehicle.

I have included a video of this bike carrier on a 2013 Hyundai Accent for you to check out. If...

If you have a convertible you would have to get the Hollywood Racks # HRF6-2 instead. This rack will actually work on both the convertible and hardtop models as well. I attached review videos for both racks for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing...

  • Fit of Yakima # Y02418 HitchSki Ski Carrier on Softride # SR26247 Dura Parallelogram Bike Rack
  • Although the Yakima # Y02418 HitchSki is designed for use on Yakima's bike racks, there's no reason why you couldn't use it on your Softride Dura # SR26247. The only factor that could prevent fit would be if the arms were further apart than 24 inches. Since the Dura's arms are only about 8-1/2 inches apart, the HitchSki should work great for you.

  • Ability to Open Rear Hatch on 2011 Infiniti FX35 With Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 on the Roof
  • The Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Carrier, # Y02103, measures approximately 53 inches from the front crossbar attachment point to the end of the carrier. I have attached a picture to illustrate this measurement. With the front crossbar on your 2011 Infiniti FX35 adjusted all the way forward, measure from the front crossbar to the nearest point of the hatch when opened. If this measurement is greater than 53 inches you shouldn't have any problem with opening your hatch while the...

For example, if you had key number A142 you would want the key # Y8772-A142. If you don't know what number you need and If the ski rack is unlocked, you will need to pull the lock core out and on that core there will be four characters. If your box is locked, you will need to take it to a locksmith to have him pick it open so you can then follow...

  • Will Yakima HitchSki Snowboard And Ski Rack Fit Yakima KingPin 4 Bike Rack
  • I spoke with my contact at Yakima and they told me that the Yakima HitchSki Snowboard and Ski Carrier, part # Y02418 should be able to fit your Yakima KingPin 4 Bike Rack, part # Y02441. They said as long as it is the 4-bike version and the cradles are able to be moved on the arms, the HitchSki should work well for you. I have attached a product review video for the HitchSki you can check out.

  • Recommended 4 Bike Trailer Hitch Bike Carrier for a 2012 Nissan Armada
  • The 4 bike platform-style hitch carrier # Y02443-2 will fit your 2012 Nissan Armada. It will fold-up and tilt just like you are wanting. Gaining access to your hatch cargo area with 4 bikes on the platform rack may be challenging because when you tilt the platform rack it will get quite heavy. Another option to consider, and one I recommend, is the Thule Apex swing bike rack # TH9027. It's designed to carry up to 4 bikes and has a total weight capacity of 140 pounds. The swing away has...

  • Will the Yakima MegaWarrior Cargo Basket Fit Factory Roof Rack on a 2014 Subaru Outback
  • The Yakima MegaWarrior and extension # Y07080-82 will fit the factory crossbars on your 2014 Subaru Outback. It would be a good idea to compare the length of the basket relative to the vehicle to determine if there would be any excessive overhang, front or back. When assembled the overall length is 74 inches long; over 6 feet in length. I have linked the instructions and a video (of the regular length MegaWarrior) for you to view.

  • Will Roof Mounted Cargo Box Interfere With Antenna On 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The best way to find a cargo box that will fit your 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee is to take a measurement. You would need to measure from the center of the front crossbar to the seam that separates the roof and the rear hatch. That is the clearance needed when determining if a cargo box will allow you to open up your rear hatch all the way without hitting the cargo box. The Yakima SkyBox 18 Rooftop Cargo Box, part # Y07336 you referenced requires a clearance of at least 57 inches to be...

  • How to Reduce Whistling Noise When Driving With Yakima Roof Rack and Skybox 21 Cargo Box
  • Any item mounted on a vehicle's roof, whether a roof rack, a cargo box, kayak or bikes, will generate some level of wind noise that increases with speed. There is simply no sure-fire magic-bullet solution for this issue. A whistling sound usually comes from the rack crossbars. A wind fairing can help in some circumstances to lessen noise from a round bar roof rack, but its quieting effect could be swamped by the presence of a cargo box that itself will generate some noise. If your round...

  • Can the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07070 be Left On in the Winter
  • The Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07070 does not require removal in snowy conditions. If you don't have a use for it in the winter time then I would recommend removing it, if for nothing else that you will get better gas mileage. But, if you need to use it to carry cargo in the winter time then you could leave it on.
