  1. Installed a 3rd party set of roof rails. Should I be worried about the trim?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Just installed a set of these: So it installs a bit different than the oem ones, as in the oem ones cover the entire piece of trim that you have to remove to install. With these rails I had to cut...
  2. Go with Honda hitch and roof rails or buy aftermarket? Which is better?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I'm going to buy a 2019 CR-V, EX trim over the next week or two. I'd like to be able to put as a big a box as I can get away with on the roof, ideally in a configuration where there would be room for both the box and a canoe (or a bike.). I assume this may necessitate crossbars that stick out a...

  4. Any experience with Ebay / Generic Rails?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Have been toying with the idea of getting roof rails for my 2019 EXL. These won't be in heavy use, it's more just for the rare occasions like picking up a christmas tree / other rare large items. I won't be carrying Kayaks or anything like that ;) So just curious, does anyone have experience...
  5. Canoe, Kayak, box and skis on 2018 EX with factory rails

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi, I've been reading some old threads about the CRV's factory roof rack situation but haven't gotten any great answers so figured I'd ask: I have a 2018 EX and paid for factory installed rails (didn't get the crossbars yet). One of the reasons I bought the CRV was to carry 1-2 kayaks...

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing 58" length 43" width Also, if the basket weighs 46lbs and the oem rails can only support 75lbs, does that mean i can only carry 29lbs on the basket? Thanks in advance!

  9. Crossbars without roof rails

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Has anyone installed crossbars without a roof rail? If so, mind sharing photos and also any recommendations on a product to buy? I personally prefer the crossbar style that go straight across rather than curving down, but curious to see how it looks regardless. Thanks!
  10. 2017 Factory roof racks without the roof rails.

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I was just curious if anyone has noticed or installed the roof rack from Honda that does not require you to install the roof rails. It is about half price comparatively.
  11. 2017-2018 CR-V Touring - Flush Roof Rails

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a 2017 CR-V Touring that came with flush mount rails. I need a set of cross bars that are adjustable and can be separated much further than the Honda made cross bars that screw into the rails. I see a number of posts discussing the situation, but nobody seems to know where you can get...
  12. after market raised (above roof) roof rails suggestions needed for 2014 CRV

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a 2014 CRV. I was very disappointed when I found out that the roof rails available for it from Honda were flush rails, not actual above the roof roof rails. I need above the roof roof rails for the Thule rack system that I have which straps around raised roof rails. Does anyone know of an...
  13. Cargo Net Attachments/Roof Rails

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Sorry if this has been covered, but the forum search didn't give me anything. I bought a used 2015 CR-V, and it came with a cargo net for the trunk, which is awesome, because I wanted one. But there's only two attachment points that I can find, for the top. I can't secure the net with the...
  14. Non OEM Roof Rails and Running Boards

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have noticed that there seem to be many unbranded versions of both of these products available on Ebay. They seem to look exactly like the OEM versions in the pictures given by the sellers and I would be quick to dismiss this as bait and switch if not for one thing. The OEM body side molding...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I picked up a used set of roof rails that had some scratches. Now I'm looking for the 12 Torx nuts as they were not included. They can't be purchased from Honda separately. Does anyone know where I can find something similar? What size is the thread? I've searched T30 torx barrel nut but...

  17. Have you installed roof rails, cross bars, moonroof windscreen, mudguards? Would you?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi, I'm receiving my EX-L next week. I was looking for a specific color (exterior and interior), so had to find one that was "in route", so I had no wiggle room with the sales manager and price. There are some options that I would like on the vehicle, but from what I've seen, they are fairly...
  18. Third party roof rails?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V

    Greetings from new CR-V OC member. SWMBO brought home a 2011 CR-V EX with 71K miles last night. Nice clean car, looks and runs great. The vehicle has the OEM front-to-back low profile roof rails that are ready to accept cross bars, but SWMBO would like a set of raised rails like I have on my...
