Will Thule Hullavator Fit a Yakima Roof Rack on a 2018 Subaru Outback


I want to put the Hullavator on a 2018 subaru outback non touring. The Thule roof rack options look like the are only 24.5 inches apart. Can I use the Yakima rack system? From your video it looks like the factory cross bars are removed, and then the Yakima rack can be placed at about 29 inches. The Thule looks like it adds significantly to the height of the whole rack system, and the Yakima seems like it integrates better. Thoughts? Thanks,

The Thule Hullavator, # TH898, will fit on a Yakima roof rack so if you like the spacing and looks of the Yakima racks you can certainly go that route for your 2018 Subaru Outback.

With the Hullavator the roof rack crossbars need to stick out past the mounting feet by at least 4 inches. What this means you will need to use longer bars than what would normally be recommended for the vehicle.

If you go with a round bar system then you will need the following parts:

Crossbars # Y00409
SkyLine Towers # Y00148
Round bar adapters # Y03536
Landing Pad # Y00241

If you want to go with the JetStream aero bars then you will need the following parts:

JetStream bars # Y00426
SkyLine Towers # Y00148
Landing Pad # Y00241
