etrailer is excellent...however, not too pleased with Yakima and these cross bars - second set in four years...they make them out of a steel that rusts quickly...better out of stainless or aluminum. Maybe that is their idea of planned obsolescence. I also learned not to install end caps...that accelerated the corrosive process.


The Yakima roof rack system is an Outstanding product. I purchased the product to replace the OEM roof rack because it was too flimsy to carry the tandem bike mount and my bike. The Yakima roof rack is solid and provides me the peace of mind while hauling my bike on the roof of my car. etrailer provided the product for the best price as always.

Still an outstanding product.

I ordered the Yakima roof rack, with the Hullyrollers for the back crossbar and the Mako saddles for the front crossbar to use with my kayak. It arrived just like they told me and I put them on my car the eveningit arrived. Got to finlly use the roof rack on June 22 to go out kayaking and it worked great. Only thing is I did not know about the air reflector piece for the front crossbar. Now I will be ordering it to help with the wind noise.


Great rack, go on fast, easy to install and work well on my VW TDI wagon. Care has to be given and follow the instructions for the install to what type of rails you have. Works great carrying the VW luggage carrier and plan on using it to carry kayaks as well. Just have not decided what kayak rack type to get yet.

Audi Q7

I've attachec a few pictures of the Yakima rack on my Audi Q7. It took a few attempts to find the right combination of attachments, but in the end, the pin attachments work best with the access points on the factory flush-mount rails. Great product!!!!!


roof racks showed up in great condition, and showed up as one package.... I should have ordered the J racks from here but I found them cheaper locally so Thule J racks compliment the whole setup and i am just about ready to hit the water :)

2008 Saturn Astra

Roof Rack 2008 Saturn Astra The roof rack arrived one day early...The packaging was excellent and the quality of the product more than met my expectations. The instructions made the insulation very easy. It took less than 45 minutes to install the unit complete.

2007 Toyota RAV4

Have been rocking my Yakima rack from for a year now. I am using rack in conjunction with a Tepui tent. Once I added the air deflector, I would say it's the perfect setup. The Yakima gives more clearance over the factory rack, so I was able to get my hands under it to secure the tent hardware. If you're thinking of upgrading your factory rack, I would not hesitate to use

1994 Honda Accord

The installation of this rack system went very well, all of the instructions were easy to read and use. I have attached some pictures of our installation. The vehicle is a 1994 Honda Accord EX four door sedan


I bought both the roof rack and the cage from etrailer! Put everything on myself...easy peasy!


Sturdy as all get out but a bit noisy on the freeway, if the flat bars had been an option when we purchased would have gone for those.

2011 Ford Fiesta

We got a Yakima Roof Rack system with locks and fairing for a "lime squeeze metallic" (Green...) 2011 Ford Fiesta 5dr Hatchback. Received the package yesterday and set it up within about an hour.

Saturn Sky

We are so happy with etrailer. The product is high quality and it arrived one day before the expected day of delivery! Their customer services is exceptional - real people who know their stuff first hand. The installation was easy and is a prefect match for our Yakima Sky Box. We took the car to Zion National Park as shown on the photo taken at the Watchman Campground!

2017 Volkswagen Golf

Bought as a pkg for my 2017 Golf R with Round Bars since I had a bunch of Yakima bike racks and a canoe gunwale rack for my old Yakima set up. Installation was easy with good instructions. All measurements from the Yakima site appear to be spot on. shipped these out quickly and all parts arrived without damage.


Took a few months to get because covid-19 slowed production but worth the wait. It's awsome


Excellent & your service was fantastic!

2005 Chevrolet Uplander

Roof rack on my 2005 Chevy Uplander. Also ordered the Q towers and fairing.


Loved the Yakima roof rack system. It's been a year and it is still going strong. Such an easy install and it looks great on my truck. My Yakima Skybox 16 sits perfectly atop the roof rack. My drives to The Sunshine State are all the more pleasurable and comfortable. My cargo area now has plenty of extra space since I load up my skybox 16 which sits perfectly on my Yakima roof rack system. The service from Etrailer was awesome. Thank you guys for your customer service and for selling such great products. I would recommend Etrailer to anyone.

2007 Subaru Forester

I ordered the Yakima RailGrab Kit with 48" round bars and the Gunwale Canoe Carrier Brackets on the advice of friends who have used a Yakima rack for years. I want to carry a canoe on my Subaru Forester, equipped with factory flush mounted rack, but needed something wider to hold my canoe, which is 38.5" at its center. This system is just the thing. It installs easily and the towers fit my the contours of my factory siderails perfectly. The Gunwale Brackets adjust with a twist-knob to snug up to the canoe for a secure fit. Once they're adjusted to the correct width, loading the canoe is easy-ever-after.

Note: the endcaps are included in the RailGrab package, as are two cam straps, so you don't need to buy these. At $300 for everything, etrailer has a great price, and the order was on my porch in less than a week. Emails to customer service were answered promptly, and a follow-up email to ask about my experience prompted me to write this very enthusiastic review. Thanks!

2016 Toyota 4Runner

I use it on top of a 2016 Toyota 4Runner. A secure grab to the roof rails and good support for a 105 lb. rooftop tent. If the crossbars were square, it would be better for my particular application. But, that was my choice.

2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

What can one say with Yakima products and how etrailer supports you, (or me), the customer. The Yakima round bar cross members and towers are great. Supports the weight and very little wind noise. Shipping was quick and undamaged.

If I need certain products I come to etrailer first and even after price checking others they can't be beat.

2016 Subaru Crosstrek

Excellent quality bars. I've carried everything from ladders to kayaks on these with no issues. I did have to add the wind deflector as these round bars are a little more noisy compared to the aerodynamic cross bar options. Ordering from etrailer is easy as can be. I've bought several items from them over the years and never had a bad experience. Just like Yakima, etrailer is all quality.

Subaru Legacy

Very pleased with roof rack and canoe package for my Suburu Legacy Wagon. I couldn't find any racks in the junk yard, and spent a lot of money on the Yakima rack products. Very glad I did. This is the most secure canoe system I've ever worked with.


Excellent setup. Fit perfectly on my Mini. I feel really confident about the installation, and it is rock solid. I've already mounted a mountain bike rack to it, and plan to add a kayak mount next. It doesn't make any more noise than i'd expect, just some wind resistance.


Yakima Roof Rack for BMWI recently purchased this product as part of the yakima roof rack system for my BMW and received everything needed for assembly in a very short amount of time even during the mad rush of Christmas shopping. I also received emails notifying me of the status of the shipping as well as a courtesy email. I highly recommend using!

  • What is the Capacity of Yakima 48 Inch Roof Rack Crossbars
    The 48 inch Yakima crossbars, # Y00408, have a weight capacity of 165 pounds no matter which mounting system you are using. Different applications have different ratings though. It sounds like you are not using the system on a vehicle roof. Whatever you are using it for, if you can determine the capacity of the mounting surface that will be beneficial as you do not want to exceed it. Always go by the lowest rating.

  • Replacement Pads for Yakima Q Tower on 2007 Nissan Maxima
    I checked with Yakima and the pads you reference # Y8810084 are the correct replacement pads for the 2007 Nissan Maxima. I have included a link to a video review of the replacement pads. If you need them, the correct crossbars for your vehicle are the Round 48" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack System # Y00408.

    Yes. I checked with Yakima and the Pin Adapters, # Y8880201, will fit the 2012 Audi Q7. When used on the Audi the RailGrabs require the 48 inch crossbars. If the bars on the Odyssey are shorter then it will not work on the Audi. You would need the 48 inch bars, # Y00408.

    Yes, the Yakima Round 48 Inch Crossbars, part # Y00408, will fit your 1997 Toyota Corolla. To mount the # Y00408 Crossbars, you will need to use Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers, part # Y00101.

I have linked an FAQ roof racks that you may find as a good reference. Also linked are all the roof racks we have available for the 1997 Toyota Corolla.

  • Yakima Landing Pad Needed for 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon to Complete Yakima Roof Rack
    To install your Yakima control towers and crossbars on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon, you will want the Landing Pad 15 # Y00241. I spoke with my contact at Yakima and confirmed that this is the correct Landing Pad for your vehicle. These pads let you replace your vehicle's factory roof rack. You will need to remove the factory cross bars to mount the landing pads. With the Control Towers on the 2016 Outback, the recommended crossbars are the 48 Inch Round CrossBars # Y00408.

  • Are Yakima Q-Clips Available to Put a Roof Rack on a 1997 Toyota Previa
    I have a solution for you, but you won't be able to use the Yakima Q Towers because there are no Q-clips available to fit your 1997 Toyota Previa. Instead, you'll need to use the Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers # Y00101 to attach a roof rack to your vehicle. The Yakima 1A towers mount in the rain gutters on your Previa and will provide you with the mounting points needed to create a roof rack system. For crossbars you can use either the Yakima 58" Round Bars # Y00409 or 48" Round Bars # Y00408...

  • Are Thule Feet Compatible with the Side Loader Mounting Brackets for Yakima Raingutter Towers
    To use the Side Loader Mounting Brackets for Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers, part # Y08002, you have to have the Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers # Y00101 as these were designed specifically for these mounting brackets and the Thule feet are designed to work with Thule fit kits. Once you have the brackets and Raingutter Towers in place you can then use the appropriate sized Yakima round bar like the 48" long Round Crossbars # Y00408.

  • Yakima Roof Rack that Fits 2018 Lexus GX 460
    Thule actually changed the design of their square crossbars a couple years ago so any of the current rack fits would not be compatible with the older style of bar you have. The current bar now has a slot that runs down the bottom of the bar. Thule actually does not have a rack that fits your 2018 Lexus GX 460 but Yakima has their round bar roof rack part numbers # Y00408, # Y00145, and # Y03536 that would work well.
