I just bought what I think to be an oem roof rack for a 2000 Honda CR-V. It doesn’t have any mounting brackets and the feet of the rack don’t fit in the channel. Anyone come across this? Is there a mount to the bolts in the track I have to purchase? And if so, where?
will the 480 footpack fit my 2000 Honda CRV? want a roof rack systems for a basket, kayaks, snowboard and liked your set up a lot.I already had the bars.
I suspect if you wanted to put this together, you'd spend $150-$200.
Keep an eye on ebay though.
Here's the CR-V specific fit kit for the 480 footpack (which you need) $30/ actually $45 with shipping
Thule 1102 Fitting Kit for Honda CRV 97-01 for sale online | eBay
Looks like the 480 footpack itself goes for around $150 on ebay.
And a set of 50" square bars you can find for maybe $40 or $50.
So, altogether, you can put together what I have above for maybe $230ish. That UK source for the fit kit saves a little over US pricing, packaging looks different but its the same 1102 kit.
It looks like Thule will sell you this entire package for $420. And then probably shipping on top of that.
If you are saavy, and search your local craigslist & classifieds, you may even get much of this set for cheaper. Good luck!
sidenote, this Thule setup is solid as heck. I think I'd trust it with a lot more load than the factory setup. I do like the look of the factory rails too. Could always fit Thule bars to the factory rails via different footpacks.
