Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota RAV4 with Raised Side Rails


hi, I have a rav 4 details ablove. when I enter the details on your site, it suggests the 58inch thule crossroads bars. I measured the roof and it seems like the shorter 45050 bars would fit without hanging over, is the correct and will the sonic 634 work with these bars and the rav4? thank you.

Thule has determined that the recommended crossbar length for your 2016 Toyota RAV4 with raised side rails is 58 inches and the part # TH45058 would be the square bar setup to use.

That being said I have a perfect recommendation I can make since you don't want bars to extend past the raised rails.

The Thule Aeroblade Edge part # TH7502-TH7502 uses a flush bar type setup where the crossbars do not extend past the feet of the rack at all like you are interested in.

This would work well with the Thule Pulse part # TH614 too. I attached a review video that shows this box being installed on a RAV4 similar to yours.
