Video Transcript for Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Installation - 2019 Toyota RAV4

Colin: What's going on, guys It's Colin here at etrailer, and today we have a 2019 Toyota RAV4. We've been doing some test fits on it with some products we sell here.Right now we have the Thule WingBar Evo Roof Rack system loaded up. Now, this is a roof rack that you can mount to the flush mount side rails on your RAV4, that is going to allow you to get any of your favorite rooftop accessories loaded up. Whether it's a bike rack, kayak carrier, maybe even a rooftop cargo box for those long road trips you might be taking. Anything you put up there, it's just going to help you conserve on space on the inside of your RAV4, or even things like a kayak, where you can't fit it inside your vehicle, you're going to be able to haul it to and from your destination with this roof rack.Now, this roof rack system consists of your 47" long WingBar Evo crossbars up top. These are going to be what holds all of your accessories.

You've got a nice aerodynamic shape that's going to help cut down on wind noise and drag, especially when you compare it to a standard square or round bar roof rack system. We have these in black right now, but if you feel like the silver color bar would match your RAV4 better, you can go ahead and check out our website. We've got both kits available for those colors.Now, what's nice is that we also have a rubber strip up top. What we can do is flip open the cap and insert T-slot accessories between our rubber strips and then tighten them down once we get those T-slot accessories to the desired location. Let me just close up that endcap and then we'll be good to go.Right here, we're going to have our Podium foot pack.

This is what's connecting our crossbars to our fit kit. I'm going to go ahead and unlock this for you. This plastic lock does come with the Podium foot pack. It's not necessarily a great security feature, but it does help the endcap stay on there. So you can just take a coin, some type of a flat tool like a screwdriver or even our trim panel tool we're using right here, unlock it, and we can pull it off.The Podium foot pack's right here.

This metal bracket right here along with the rubber pad is part of our fit kit. This has been designed for the RAV4. You can see how it really matches the contours of our raised side rails very well. It's going to help make sure that it has a nice and snug fit and a clean look.Right here we have our bolt that tightens down and holds our fit kit and Podium foot pack onto our flush inaudible 00:02:20 side rails. And we have our two bolts right here.

Once you tighten these down, this is what locks the Podium foot pack into the bottom track of our WingBar Evo crossbars. And we'll get that endcap back on. What's nice, is with these plastic locks, if you want to, you can replace these with Thule lock cores. That would just provide more security for your roof rack. If you just want to make sure no one come up and tamper with it.Now, I want to provide you guys with a few measurements. First, from the top of our roof to the bottom of our WingBar, is going to be 3-3/4". That should be more than enough space to get your clamp on accessories underneath your crossbar without hitting the top of your roof or damaging that paint job. From the top of our roof to the top of our WingBar, it's going to be 4-3/4". You just want to keep that in mind because you have that added height to your roof. So for any low clearance situations, you just want to be wary of the added height. Although with your RAV4, you're probably not going to come across too many situations where height is going to be a restriction for you anyway.Now, the WingBar setup is going to have a 220 lbs weight capacity, but you do want to be sure and double check with your RAV4's owner's manual and make sure your roof can handle that weight before you've loaded it up like that.Well now that we've gone over some of those features of the roof rack, let's go ahead and show you how to get it installed. Now, we're going to start up on our roof. We have our front crossbar installed. The back one's going to assemble and install the exact same way. So you can see there's a little cap right here. We need to pop this off. If we look over to the other side of the RAV4, we can see that I have it popped off on the other side, and I have that little anchor bolt already in there.So what we're going to do, is just take a plastic trim tool so it won't scratch up the RAV4, pop that off, and then your kit is going to come with some pieces that are going to replace that. You want to make sure you have it facing the right way. You want to have this square outline facing the middle of the vehicle. Just for a different reference point, if you need something else, there's going to be a hole down here where my finger is, that's where the bolt is going to go. You just want to make sure that the opening of your new plastic piece fits that. So we'll just get that in there. Now what we're going to do, is grab our other anchor bolt and begin to thread that in. And then with the included tool that comes in our kit, we'll just get it tightened down the rest of the way.Now we'll go ahead and get our rear crossbar assembled. It's going to be a pretty easy process. It might look like there's a lot of pieces, but just follow these instructions. It's not going to be too difficult. What we're going to do, we have our fit kit right here, which is our bracket and our rubber pad. The side with the one hole is going to go against the pad. While the side with the two holes, it's going to end up going on the two holes of our Podium foot pack.So we'll just feed this in here. And then with the hardware that comes with your Podium foot pack, these little Allen bolts right here, we're going to first make sure that our bar on the backside, this little metal cylinder, has the two holes right there, and it does. I'm going to turn it this way, and then take our Allen bolts and feed it through this hole and then through that hole, and get it threaded on to our Podium foot pack. Just get it threaded on, don't tighten it down at all. There we go, you see it's holding on now.We'll come over here, take the endcap off of our crossbar just by pressing down on that button, pulling off the endcap. And then with our Podium foot pack and our fit kit assembly, you see the track right here, these notches are going to go into the bottom track of our crossbar. Just feed it in just like that. Put the endcap back on. Now we're ready to get it on our roof.Now, each of our rubber pads are going to have a hole in the center. That's what's going to go over top of those anchor bolts that we put down on the roof already. So I'm just going to raise this over top. Might be kind of difficult to get it over that far bolt, but as long as you just get it close, we get this one over top, just like that. Now we'll go to the other side and make sure that one gets over.Now, on this bolt we're going to drop a lock washer over top, and then take our nut right here and start threading it on. We're going to go as far as we can with our fingers, and then with that same tool that came in our kit, going to tighten this down the rest of the way. And then make sure you repeat this for the other side.Now, inaudible 00:07:31 want to go ahead and make sure your crossbar overhang is even. What we did is just measured from the edge of our Podium foot pack to the outside of our crossbar on both sides. Now from there what we're going to do, is tighten down these bolts. Tightening down these bolts, this is going to lock the Podium foot pack into the channel of our WingBar so that it doesn't move at all while we're traveling.So you see right there, now it's locked in. We'll go repeat this for the other side. Now we'll just get the endcaps on our Podium foot packs. Just take that little flat tool like we talked about earlier, lock up so it doesn't fly off. And when you're done with the full installation, it's never a bad idea to go ahead and grab both crossbars, and we'll just give the vehicle a good shake. So you see the entire vehicle is moving back and forth, up and down, so we know that this is going to be solid. And now we're ready to load up our favorite Thule rooftop accessories, and then hit the road.Well, thank you all for watching. That's going to do it for our test fit of the Thule WingBar Evo Roof Rack system on our 2019 Toyota RAV4.

Very satisfied with this entire purchase. The Thule rack parts I ordered were received as expected. More importantly, the video that etrailer made for how to install the parts on my Explorer made this a very enjoyable experience. It allowed me to quickly assemble the rack without the usual frustration. Thank you for doing the video! 450379

Thule is the only premier cargo accessory manufacture in the industry. The design, manufacturing and quality of their products is world class. We currently own two German SUVs that are used regularly for a wide array of outdoor sports and refuse to outfit our vehicles with any other brand of equipment. This particular system was very easy to install when following manufacturers installation instructions and recommendations. 323666

Great roof rack. Everything shipped and arrived as expected. The kit had everything I needed to install on my 2017 Highlander with factory side rails. Followed the directions provided and watched the video. Install took about an hour by myself. I have purchased a number of products from etrailer and have never had any complaints or issues. 417727

We just purchased a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe as our retirement vehicle for traveling. We wanted to install cargo accessories but the dealer prices were WAY to high. After researching for several days we found etrailer.com. The prices were the best we found and the service was outstanding! We installed a Thule roof rack system that fits flawlessly and allows the panorama sun roof to plenty of roof to operate. The videos made in really easy to install. We also installed a trailer hitch system. The Tekonsha Trailer Wiring kit was also a piece of cake to install. If you're hesitant to work on electrical systems, there's no need to be afraid. It's actually easier than it looks in the video. The Curt Trailer Hitch gave me major headaches. The delivery company banged the box up pretty badly. Apparently it tweaked the hitch just enough so that the holes were misaligned. No problem, after talking me through the installation one more time to be sure it was damaged, they shipped a new unit. The second hitch went in fine. It took a while, and it's not as easy as it looks in the video, but I'm 67 years old I did the installation myself... Overall, I gave five stars because the price match guaranty makes it a wise choice price wise. he videos are a big help during installation. But the real difference is the service. A lot of folks provide good service to make a sale, but etrailer goes the extra distance to provide great service afterwards. That's unique! Thanks etrailer! 707576

etrailer directed me to all of the roof rack components for my needs via their website. In addition, they provided videos for installation that were quite helpful. They are a quality business and deliver on their goods. I will definitely use them for other auto accessories in the future. 671290

Where the aerobars are great, Thule falls on it's face with the design of the mounting feet. The feet are hard to position in the bars and the faceplates do not securely fit into the feet. So far I've only got two to lock in. The other two pop off with the slightest pull. Also given the price tag on these relatively simple items, I would think that Thule could include a lock-set. 52796

I purchased a full direct mount Thule kit for my 2018 Infiniti Q30s. etrailer.com made it very easy, pairing what I needed at a great price. My kit arrived earlier than estimated and looks great on my car. If there was one negative, it would be the Thule instructions. Written in multiple languages to cover thier market made installation a bit challenging but it all worked out. 800163

the thule roof rack system is basically well thought out, and seems to be well constructed. time will tell. i am surprised though at the wide gaps in some of the fits between pieces. the star [hex style] screws fit well, and drive easily with a drop of wd-40. make sure to save the drivers and put them where they will not be lost in the event that you wish to adjust, tighten or remove the racks. one oversight is that when installed on my 2017 murano rails, there are gaps on either side of the foot. seems to me that thule would have a solution for that, as these gaps will allow snow, rain, dirt to enter the gaps and build up inside of the murano rails. i used the system last week loaded up with heavy long boards to drive to and from my break in montauk, at speeds up to 65 mph, and nothing vibrated, rattled or made any notable strap noise above and beyond what is to be expected. it will be interesting to see how the thule system holds up for say, 2,3,4,5, years up here in the north east. 697641

  • Recommended Thule Black Roof Rack for 2018 Ford Explorer XLT
    There are two options for your desired black Thule Crossbars on your 2018 Ford Explorer. Option one is to use the Thule WingBar Evo- 53" # TH711420, Podium Foot Pack # TH460R, Fit Kit # THKIT3151, and locks # TH450400. Option two is to use the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7603B-TH7604B along with Fit Kit # THKIT3151, and locks # TH450400. This is a lower profile option with more of a factory look but you won't have as much usable bar space.

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation to Fit Tracks on Roof of 2020 Nucamp 320
    Thule changed their square bar design recently and discontinued the feet that fit the older bars like you have so you'd have to go with a new rack setup. So for feet you'd need the part # TH460R, for the fit kit part # THKIT3101, and then for crossbars you'd want the ProBar part # TH713600 which are 69 inches long. The other bar styles from Thule aren't long enough for the distance you have between the tracks but the ProBars are a really great design. They are more aerodynamic than the...

Then for the aero-style crossbars the 60" WingBar Evo Bars # TH711520 will work perfectly.

Since Thule requires you to have a set of after crossbars that hang past the feet of the rack you'll need their Aeroblade roof rack that is comprised of fit kit # THKIT4063, crossbars # TH711200, and feet part # TH460R. With those three components you'll be able to use the Hullavator # TH898. The picture I attached shows the rack used on a similar Subaru as yours too.

    For your 2016 Mercedes GLA I recommend going with a Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack in either silver, # TH7601-TH7602, or black, # TH7601B-TH7602B. Either of these roof racks attaches to the fixed mounting points on your roof using fit kit # THKIT4049 for a clean, factory look. The bars are also aerodynamic and create less noise and wind resistance than other roof rack designs. I think you will find that the AeroBlade Edge roof racks not only maintain the beauty of your GLA but will also...

  • Will a Roof Rack and Low Profile Cargo Box on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Fit a 7 Foot Tall Garage
    The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee has an overall stock height of about 5 foot 9 inches or so meaning that combined a roof rack and cargo box cannot be more than 15 inches tall in order to fit in a 7 foot tall garage opening. The two shortest boxes are from Inno, # INBRM660WH for white and # INBRM660BK for black. They are each 11 inches tall. The most low-profile roof rack is a Thule AeroBlade Edge system such as # TH7602B-TH7602B with fit kit # THKIT3142. It is designed to fit models that...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendations for 2020 Honda CR-V
    Thule has a couple of options that might be a good choice for you. If you prefer something that looks factory installed, the Thule AeroBlade Edge would be a good choice. It's avaliable in a black finish as parts # TH7601B and # TH7602B for the crossbars and # THKIT3166 for the fit kit. For a sliver finish on the crossbars, use # TH7601 and # TH7602 for the crossbars and # THKIT3166 for the fit kit. The only possible problem you might have using either of these options is if your CR-V has...

  • Quiet Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2011 BMW 550i
    What I recommend for your 2011 BMW 550i is to use Thule Wingbars. These bars significantly reduce drag and noise for a quieter ride. They do not require a fairing because of their design and they should be much quieter for you. The elliptical design is also more stylish than traditional round or square bars. If your 550i is a 4-Door with no existing rails or crossbars, you would need the following parts to install the rack: Thule 47 inch WingBars, # TH711200 in silver or # TH711220...

  • Can Thule Podium Feet be Used for Roof Rack on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    If your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee has the black and chrome track, flush mounted rails that run front to back (see attached) then you will be able to reuse the Rapid Podium Feet # TH460R that you currently have with the Fit Kit # THKIT3142. According to Thule though your 47" AeroBlade crossbars are too short and you'll need at least the 53" crossbars. These are now available as the WingBar Evo and we have them in Black # TH711420 as well as Silver # TH711400. If you don't have the...

  • What Crossbar System do you Recommend for my 2016 Subaru Outback to use A Load Assist Kayak Carrier
    We have a solution but there is no way of adding and adapter to solve the issue. The requirement of the extra overhang is imperative to the support needed for the system to work. We can however add the rack you need to your 2016 Subaru Outback Sport. Since you have the factory rails I believe this means that you have the flush rails that run front to back on your roof rather than raise rails since the crossbars can be hidden in the flush rails when not deployed. If this is incorrect...

  • Availability of Replacement Parts for Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit # THKIT3039 for a 2011 BMW 535i
    It looks like your best bet for getting the replacement parts you need would be to go with a new # THKIT3039 fit kit. I spoke with my Thule representative, and found out that unfortunately, they do not offer individual components of the # THKIT3039 fit kit as replacement parts. My rep went on to explain that Thule offers hundreds of different fit kits, all of them vehicle-specific, many of which use unique parts. It wouldn't be possible for Thule to stock and manage all those spare parts...

  • Compatibility of Older Thule Frontier Ski Box with 2014 Honda CRV EX-L with Factory Side rails
    The 2014 Honda CRV comes with factory installed crossbars, flush rails and a naked roof. It sounds like you are purchasing a 2014 Honda CRV EX-L with flush mounted rails that run front to back. I recommend the Thule roof rack system: Thule SquareBars # TH712200 Podium Foot Pack # TH460R Fit Kit # THKIT3118 If you want to use the 53 inch SquareBars # TH712400 we've tested them and know they fit. I can't recommend going any longer than that unless you go with the ProBars which...

  • Parts Needed to Use Thule AeroBlade Bars on 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee With E Group Roof Rails
    We do not have E Group roof rails available for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The only place you will likely be able to find them is at a Jeep dealer or somewhere else that has OEM parts available and then have them remove your rails and install the E Group rails if that is possible.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2018 Ford Transit EB for 2 Thule Hullavator Pro Carriers
    For your 2018 Ford Transit EB, to get the length of crossbars needed to 2 Hullavator # TH898, you will need to use square load bars. For the best system on your 2018 Ford Transit EB, I recommend the following roof rack components: Thule ProBar Load Bars # TH713700 (cut down for the 4 inch overhang needed on each side) Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack # TH460R Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit # THKIT3138 Lock Cylinders # TH450400

  • Roof Rack and Hitch T-Load Goal Post for 2019 RAM 1500
    I have a really great solution to allow you to install a roof rack and a front T-loader type support bar for transporting your longer canoe. For that you'd want the Yakima CoreBar roof rack part numbers # Y00423, # Y00146, and # Y06135 for an aero bar roof rack with the Thule Goal Post part # TH997 you mentioned as well. This kit gives you two crossbars which will do a better job supporting the canoe. It does use the door frame for attachment which since your roof is totally naked there...
