Roof Rack Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • Carrying Two Kayaks on Bare Vehicle Roof
  • Assuming that the kayaks are narrow enough width-wise to safely fit on the roof of the vehicle, using two foam block carriers like part # SR5525 would be an option as long as the combined weight of the kayaks doesn't exceed the roof capacity of the vehicle. This option is designed to be used on a vehicle with a bare roof, and the straps that hold the kayaks to the roof will pass through the passenger compartment, the doors will need to be closed on the straps. This arrangement has two drawbacks....

  • Recommended Bike Rack on 2017 Honda Civic Sport Hatchback
  • A roof rack is going to be your best option for a 2017 Honda Civic Sport Hatchback as long as you have a 4 door. Roof racks will cause drag which will always impact your gas mileage. And, like you said, getting something on a roof is more difficult than the trunk, but a hitch will not work with the center exhaust and a trunk rack is going to have issues with with the top spoiler. The most aerodynamic roof rack to fit the Civic is the Thule AeroBlade that consists of the load bars #...

  • Best Roof Rack for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
  • I contacted Thule to verify the correct fits for the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. Thule does not recommend opening the sunroof with any crossbars installed, as it may cause damage to the crossbars or the sunroof's motor and glass. With the Thule Aeroblade Edge, part # TH7504-TH7504, you will not be able to use the sunroof, but the quick install and removal of these blades may make up for that. These bars ratchet to your existing siderails and can be removed quickly when not in use. Thule...

  • What are the Dimensions of the Thule Square Bars
  • I went out into our showroom and measured the dimensions of a set of Thule square bars like the part # THLB58 and found that they are 7/8 of an inch by 1-1/4 inches. Check out the video I attached to see these measurements being taken.

  • How to Remove the End Caps on Thule Rapid Crossroads Feet and AeroBlade Load Bars
  • If you are talking about the end caps on the Rapid Crossroads foot pack # TH450R then they will just pull off (unless you have locks installed then you would unlock them first). For the end caps on the AeroBlade bars there is a little tab on the underside of the bar that you will need to press in while pulling out on the end cap. I made a video showing how this works for you.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Honda Pilot
  • For your 2017 Honda Pilot I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack # TH7603B-TH7604B for black crossbars or # TH7603-TH7604 for silver crossbars. The AeroBlade Edge roof rack is going to look the most like a factory rack, the bars are integrated into the feet for a low-profile appearance, and the bars are among the quietest with the least wind resistance. The only other part you will need is the fit kit # THKIT3132.

  • Thule AeroBlade Roof Racks for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude with Raised Rails
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule who verified that they have not run into any problems with fitting one of their roof racks to a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude. The problem may be as simple as if you don't have the E Group Package and he was trying to fit a roof rack that is only compatible with the E Group Package. If your raised rails have the chrome finish like in the picture that I attached then you have the E Group Package. If your rails are black then you don't have the...

  • Troubleshooting Loud Whistling After Rhino Rack Roof Rack Install
  • Did you install the rubber strip in the upper and lower channel of the crossbars? What you described sounds like you are missing that as these are aero bars and should not be whistling at all. If there are any holes in the channel on the bottom or top of the bar they should be covered to get rid of the noise. Or you can use a fairing like part # RRRF3 to direct the air over the rack.

  • Recommended Method to Carry Kayaks on 2015 Toyota Highlander XLE with Factory Roof Rack
  • There are several ways you can go to rig your 2015 Toyota Highlander with fixed factory roof crossbars for transporting kayaks. Adding a secondary roof rack is not an option, however, since aftermarket racks would have to use the same mounting points as your OEM bars. I confirmed this with my contacts at both Rhino-Rack and Thule. But there are also other ways you can carry kayaks that might give you additional cargo-carrying capabilities and/or possibly save you some money as compared...

You will also need one Podium Style Foot Pack Fit Kit # THKIT3101 and one of the Podium Foot Pack kits # TH460. I confirmed this with my technical contact at Thule.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • There are only roof racks confirmed to fit 2017 Honda Civic 4 door hatchback vehicles, so if you have a coupe, there is not a roof rack fit. Each of the roof racks fit in the door jambs using a vehicle specific fit kit with molded hooks. I recommend the Thule roof rack consisting of the Thule AeroBlade Load Bars - Aluminum - Black - 53" - Qty 2 # THARB47B, the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480R and the speacial custom hooks in the Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit for Traverse...

  • Roof Rack Compatible with 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sun Roof
  • If your Santa Fe does not have factory-installed flush side rails that run front to back on your roof (and I believe that it does not have these) you can select the Rola Roof Rack for the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sunroof, part # 59779. 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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with Factory Install Rails
  • The crossbar I recommend is the Thule AeroBlade # THARB53 because its extremely quiet and has integrated T-slots which make it easy to slide T-track accessories onto the bars. The roof mounted railing foot pack # TH450R (sold separately) are easily installed or removed with the integrated tool that will also act as a cover. The weight capacity of the roof rack is 165 pounds but it's always a good idea to check your owners manual to see the maximum roof weight capacity. Therefore,...

That's the purpose of the name, and the advantage of the rack.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2015 Honda CR-V With Naked Roof
  • We do have a roof rack that will work for your 2015 Honda CR-V. What we have found is that you cannot have factory side rails added to a vehicle after it has been delivered but we have a solution for you. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Roof Rack. This features anodized aluminum aerodynamic crossbars with a rubberized Vortex strip in the crossbar top channel to disrupt airflow for a quiet ride. Along with the crossbars the system uses the Series 2500 Legs that include locks to secure...

  • Yakima Roof Rack Components Needed to Install Roof Rack in Pace Tonneau

  • How to Determine if 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee has E-Group Roof For Picking Out Roof Rack
  • The E-Group rails are ones that have a chrome section that runs down the middle of the rail. The non-E-Group rails are totally black without a chrome section. I attached a picture that has the chrome section pictured. If your roof has the E-Group rails you would need the part # RRRVP27 that you referenced as that is what this rack is designed to fit. Otherwise you'd need the Yakima roof rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y00146, and # Y06121.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Kia Sedona
  • You can absolutely install an aftermarket roof rack on your 2017 Kia Sedona. In fact, an aftermarket roof rack is typically stronger and more durable than factory installed systems. As long as your vehicle's roof has flush mounted rails that run front to back, I recommend looking at the Rhino Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack. This system, which is confirmed to fit your Sedona, consists of parts # RRVA137B-2 and # RRSX023. This will provide an extremely quiet roof rack with two 54 inch, aerodynamic...
