  3. honda CRV EXL want roof rack

    We did not purchase the roof rails / cross bars. Does anyone know of a clamp on roof rack for the 2017-2018 CRV? I looked at the DIY instructions to put Honda's rails on the car and it involves an air saw / cutting parts which I don't think is a great plan....

  6. 1st Honda

    Greetings & Introductions
    Have had several Toyotas, starting with a '72 Corolla as my 1st car, and had set out to buy a new RAV4 but found the 2017 CRV to be much more vehicle for the money. Was quickly disappointed by the fixed cross rail system on the roof rack when I went to install my Yakima Skybox to the OEM rails...
  7. Multiple Attennas

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    So I have 3 attennas on top of my 2015 CRV Touring. I can remove 1, and another lays flat but 1 I am not sure if I can remove. I don't want to break it, any idea how to remove it. The reason I am trying to do this is I tried putting a roof rack on and it is hitting the attennas or at least...
  8. 2014 Cr-V with Yakima naked roof Baseline Jetstream rack and LoadWarrior

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    The first project on the car was to get this thing on and secured. I can tell you right now, even though the rack comes with directions and measurements, you're gonna end up making your own small adjustments to it. If you plan on going with this cargo carrier, start adjusting to it right off the...
  9. Who's idea was it to fix the positions of the roof rail tower mounts?!

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a brand spanking new 2017 EX-L. I have a ton of great Yakima accessories and plunked down heavy change on new mounts and towers. Bolted them into the Honda-made holes in the roof rails easily enough buuuuut.... The positions are fixed - meaning I can't move the rails forward or back...
  10. New owner of a 2017 CRV

    Greetings & Introductions
    I'm here begrudgingly. I had an amazing Honda Element that was brilliant but we traded it in for a more kid-friendly car, a VW TDI Wagon. You probably know the rest of that story. We still regret parting ways with the Element. I lobbied hard for a Ridgeline, which IMHO was a perfect blend of a...
  11. Best rack add-on for 2011 CRV LX without rails

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Just bought a used 2011 without rails and want to add a multipurpose rack for carrying extra gear. I've had Thule racks in the past but reviews say they are noisy over 30mph. Are Yakima racks any better? What about the full rail OEM compatible kits? Do the cross bars that com with those...
  12. 2014 roof rack for kayak

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a 2014 CRV without rails. I'm thinking about buying a kayak so obviously I'll need to transport it. Looking online it seems like with parts and install getting factory rails and crossbars would be about $1000. I've looked at Yakima and I'm a little confused about what I would need...

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hello all, I recently bought an OEM roof rack for my gen-1 V from a local salvage yard. The rails and crossbars are in excellent shape but I am missing some of the mounting hardware. I have called around and tried to find the missing pieces everywhere and i figured this would be my last resort...
  14. Roof Racks

    Problems & Issues
    Hi I have a 2008 CR-V with original roof racks (rails). For the first time this year, I am planning to install a roof box. But I could not find anywhere in the manuals how to install/uninstall them (I have to change the location). Is there a manual how to take them off etc somewhere ?

    Image & Video Gallery
    I'm getting cross bars on my CR-V today to eventually throw a basket up there. That makes me highly interested in what cargo baskets/carriers everyone is accessorizing with. If you've got one, get some pics and throw them up here in this thread! CR-Vs with roof racks are cool :cool: Example:

    I have a 2013 CRV with a naked roof and I would like to add a roof rack to transport a couple kayaks. Which system do people recommend? Yakima, Thule or the dealer installed rails/crossbars?

    We're looking to purchase a 2006 CR-V (already have a 2012) and would like to put cross rails on it. OEM roof rack says 75 pound limit. What limits the weight? i.e. the roof itself, or the cross rails or ??? We would like to carry to two kayaks so with two sets of j-racks and the kayaks the...
  20. Roof racks and antennas...

    Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda (and anyone else making nominal SUV's), Please, please, please stop making OEM roof racks with fixed, non-adjustable mounting points. Sometimes, it's helpful (and necessary) to be able to spread the bars farther apart. Oh, and not positioning the antenna where it is almost...
