Thule Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2010 Mini Clubman

Today, on this 2010 MINI Clubman, we're going to be installing the Thule Traverse Roof Rack, with part numbers THLB50, which are the bars, part number TH480, which is the foot pack, and part number THKIT1680, which is going to be your fit kit. The Thule Traverse Roof Rack is a perfect solution if you want to carry bike racks, cargo baskets, water sport carriers, or even ski and snowboard carriers. The Thule load bars are nice and sturdy, with a weight capacity of 165 pounds, although you do want to check with your owner's manual, to make sure that your car can withstand that weight. The bars themselves are galvanized steel, with a rubber coating around it, so it will not rust or corrode, and it will add 00:00:38 for a little bit of padding for your bike racks or other accessories. The Thule Traverse Roof Rack can also lock to your roof. You have this portion here, which can be knocked out and be replaced with a lock core, which you can purchase separately. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the roof rack, let's show you how it installs. Now, you will have to make some modifications to your vehicle, and that just means, taking some measurements of making cuts into this rubber strip here just above the window.


Rhino-Rack Vortex StealthBar Roof Rack Review

Today we're going to be reviewing the Rhino-Rack Silver Vortex StealthBar Roof Rack, part number JA7954. This is also available in black, as part number JA7973. The Rhino-Rock StealthBar Roof Rack System is a great addition to your vehicle. It grips on to the raised side rails of your vehicle, and it gives a nice sleek look, and actually looks like part of the car. The StealthBar sheath actually sit in between the two rails, giving it more that factory look, as opposed to sitting on top of them. The aerodynamic shape of the bar, plus the vortex strip, which actually extends out to the foot here, will give you that reduced wind noise and drag. The StealthBar Roof Rack uses these rubber coated steel straps to hook onto your car. This ensures that your car won't get scratched or dented, or anything like that, while you're installing it. This roof rack comes with all the tools necessary to install it, and you can even take the allen tool and store it inside the roof rack itself, while you travel.


Thule AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2013 Ford Fusion

Today on our 2013 Ford Fusion, we'll be taking a look at installing the Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack System. As you can see, we already got it up here on our vehicle, so you can see what it's going to look like once we have that first bar in place we're going to show you how to put that second bar in and go over the part numbers. We have the cross bar here, that's going to be part number THARB53. The traverse foot pack, part number TH480R, and the custom fit kit for the Ford Fusion, which is going to be part number THKIT1692. I'll show you how they all go together and how it all comes into one. One the ends of the cross bars, we're going to rotate, on the bottom there's going to be a tab, press in and pull out to remove the end caps. There's also going to be a scale in here that we're going to be using to get our equal bar cross widths.


Thule Roof Rack Review - 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan

Today in our 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack, composed of part numbers THARB53, which is going to be the actual aeroblade itself, and then the Thule rapid traverse foot pack, part number TH480R, and then finally the clamp kit, which is part number THKIT1043. Now we already have the front one installed, and to do that we actually had to measure back from the windshield 70 centimeters to put it into place. We're going to go ahead and show you how the rear one goes on, which we already have one foot pack assembled, and we'll show you how the last one goes. First off, we're going to take off our end cap here, and if you come in you can see these numbers here on the aeroblade bar. I'm going to push those out until those numbers read 49 right here. Then we'll take our foot pack, and you want to fold out this portion here. Then we'll slide it through the T slot here, into position, until it meets up with our marker right here, and then you just push up on this latch. All right.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2015 Jeep Cherokee

Today on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee we have our Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars and Foot pack. Our crossbar number is RRVA126B-2 and our foot pack number is RRSX005. We have our front roof rack installed or our inaudible 00:00:24 front crossbar installed already. I'll show you how we can install our back one and tell you a little bit about the product. Our foot pack here comes with its own allen tool. It tells you that you're done tightening when this straightens out. It creates a straight line.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Today on this 2014 Subaru xv Crosstrek, we're going to be test fitting the Rhino Rack Vortex StealthBar roof rack, part number JA7973. As you can see we have the front rack installed already. Lets go ahead and show you how the rear one installs. This roof rack is specifically designed for raised factor roof rail. We already have one side of our rack here set to go with the straps to go around the bars. I'll show you how that goes for the other side. First you have to remove this bolt here, and you have to remove it all the way.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2016 Jeep Patriot

Today on our 2016 Jeep Patriot, we're doing a test fit of the rhino rack vortex aero crossbars. Our part number for our crossbar here is rrva118b-2, for our foot pack that we're using it's rrsx001. Now we already have our front bar mounted up and secured, we're going to show you how we put on our last foot pack here, and then show you how we load up our bar since it is the same way. We'll start by taking our foot pack. If it's closed like this, you want to open it all the way. We're just going to fit it so that everything lines up and fits into our channel here.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack RRVA180S-2 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino Rack vortex aero crossbars with the matte silver finish. These are going to be sleek, low-profile bars that are going to let you build an aftermarket roof rack for your vehicle. That way, you can easily haul your roof-mounted accessories. They are going to require Rhino rack legs and a custom-fit kit, depending on your vehicle. Those items are sold separately and can be found right here at etrailer.com. These are going to be nice, slim elliptical crossbars when it comes to the shape.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack RRVA165S-2 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with a matte silver finish. These are going to be sleek low-profile bars that are going to let you build an aftermarket roof rack for your vehicle. That way, you can easily haul your roof-mounted accessories. They are going to require Rhino-Rack legs and a custom-fit kit, depending on your vehicle. Those items are sold separately and can be found right here at etrailer.com. These are going to be nice, slim, elliptical crossbars when it comes to the shape, which is really going to help create an extremely aerodynamic system. These are going to be full-length bars that are actually going to extend past the roof rack legs, which is really going to help maximize space for your carriers and for your accessories. Here on the top of the bar, we're going to have a top channel that's going to let you add channel-mounted carriers and accessories to the bars, and then you can also use clamp-on accessories.

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack Vortex And Thule Aeroblade Roof Racks For 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Both the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero and Thule AeroBlade roof rack systems have very nice features and would work well for your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both systems are designed to work on vehicles that have the flush mounted rail system. As far as the design or advantages or disadvantages of the Rhino-Rack system versus the Thule system, it is very difficult to say it has features that are better than the Thule. They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack has...

  • Recommendation for Wind Noise Prevention for Yakima Roof Rack on 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • To help prevent wind noise created by the Yakima roof rack you installed on your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend the Yakima Windjammer Airfoil # Y01115. It is a small, wing shaped airfoil that serves as a low-cost alternative to fairing. It installs in seconds over the front crossbar and reduces rack noise. I have included a video review and description of this product. It is 1-1/4 inches tall by 3-3/4 inches wide by 8 inches long and comes with a lifetime warranty. I have included...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • There are indeed some roof rack options available for your Jeep Grand Cherokee. The first thing you'll need to do is determine if your Grand Cherokee has the E group package. You can easily tell this by examining the rails on the roof. If the rails have a metal strip on the top, you have the E group package. For that style roof rail, you'd want to use the Rhino Rack roof rack, which uses existing holes in the roof rails and consists of the following parts: Aero style crossbars, part...

  • I checked with my contact at Yakima for rack options for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. He advised that if your 2015 Grand Cherokee has chrome strips on its flush side rails then you can use their outstanding ultra-quiet Whispbar system consisting of parts # WB-S25 and # WB-K624. This is a fixed-point rack system using ultra-quiet aerodynamic crossbars and it is shown in the linked video. This is the best option to avoid racks that use clamps, as you prefer. The Whispbar crossbars are...

  • We do have a Thule AeroBlade roof rack that will fit your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, however the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, # TH7502-TH7502, that you referenced will fit raised OEM side rails only. Since your Jeep has the flush side rails, you will want the AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack. The Traverse roof rack consists of the 60 inch AeroBlade Load Bars, # THARB60, the Traverse Foot Pack, # TH480R, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT1656. You can also add the Thule One-Key Locks, # TH544,...

If your Santa Fe Sport does in fact have the factory-installed roof rails that run front to back on your roof, then you can use the Rola Roof Rack, part # 59766, which is intended for vehicles that do have the factory installed roof...

  • What is the Roof Weight Capacity of a 2012 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
  • I spoke with a tech at my local Toyota dealer and he told me that the roof weight capacity for the 2012 Toyota Highlander is 100 lbs. This weight capacity applies to factory or aftermarket crossbars. You may wish to use aftermarket crossbars like the Thule AeroBlade Edge, # TH7503-TH7503, or the Whispbar Rail Bar, # WB-S46, because they will not flex as much as the OEM crossbars. You will still be limited to the 100 lbs weight capacity of the vehicle roof, but the crossbars included...

Differences between products suitable for your Rogue will include shape, length and color of the crossbars, weight capacity of the rack system, and how quiet the rack is during highway...

  • First, we have systems much, much longer than 56 inches that I am sure will fit even the widest campers, so that should not be an issue. What you will want to check is the owners manual for the camper or the camper manufacturer to determine if the roof is rated for this application, and if it is how much weight it can hold. Once you determine that you can use a roof rack, I recommend adding a track system starting with Yakima tracks, # Y01126. These tracks will allow you to adjust the...
