In order to use the Thule # TH859XT Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, you will indeed need a roof rack to provide an attachment point to the vehicle roof, as the basket can't attach directly.

If your CR-V has the roof rails that run front to back along the sides of the roof, Rhino-Rack offers a roof rack that would work great for you. You'd assemble the rack using these parts:

• 49 Inch Vortex Aero crossbars in silver as part # RRVA126S-2 or black as part # RRVA126B-2
• RCL Leg kit, part # RRRCL4
• Fit Kit for existing holes in the rails on the roof, part # RRRCP33-BK

If your CR-V has a bare roof Rhino-Rack offers a Vortex Aero rack fit for that as well. You'd use the parts mentioned below:

• 54 inch Vortex Aero Crossbars, part # RRVA137B-2 for black or # RRVA137B-2 for silver
• Roof Rack Feet, part # RRRLKVA
• Vehicle Specific Fit Kit, part # DK284
