2019 Hyundai Ioniq

I ordered the Yakima roof rack for a 2019 Hyundai Ioniq. I went with the heavy duty one for extra strength but it is quite a bit thicker, likely increasing wind noise. So I might have chosen the aerodynamic lighter weight one if I was to do it again. Also, I needed to get larger bolts for my kayak holder to get around the crossbar. The instructions and video on website were very helpful but they did not explain well how to adjust the toe and pitch. For the toe adjustment, you have to push the metal post with the tool before tightening. That was not obvious. For the pitch, it helped to do that once the towers are attached to crossbar. Then you can tilt tower while cross bar is laying flat (upside down). I ended up having to add tilt on both front and back crossbars for them to be flat when installed. Website said only front one would need to be pitched. I am very pleased with the look and sturdiness of the product. My Hyundai Dealer had zero options for this car.


The customer service in ordering theses par tea was amazing!! I spoke with a wonderful specialist named Kate F, and she was super helpful and patient answering all my questions and helping me make sure I had the correct parts I needed for my type of car. The bars are very sturdy and have proven very worth the money!!


Easily supports the RoofNest! The Customer Service with Roger was Excellent!

2022 Subaru Outback Wagon

These Yakima crossbars are very HD, just what I was looking for. The Small size was hard to locate but etrailer had them in stock and delivered in short order. Instillation was quick and straight forward.


Very simple to install, High quality it em!

2021 Ford Ranger

Eye bolts not ordered
The rest went


Everything was perfect and relatively easy to setup. Ì bought from etrailer due to the actual manufacturer being out of stock, I was skeptical when I ordered but very glad I did. Would 100% recommend etrailer.


Fits sturdy. New to cross bars so the noise was a surprise. One complaint I have is they should have common instructions on installing them. I had to search and search to get some help. Can’t give to much on a review due to my add ons won’t be here for 2 months.

Toyota Highlander

Christian took the extra time to figure out what I needed to attach a hullavator to my Highlander when others were unable to help. The order came quickly too.


The rep from etrailer (Noah conformed my online order, made certain my order was correct for the vehicle I was outfitting and made certain I received my order items on time before my trip. This company is great!


Working fantastic


Fast delivery, product came in excellent condition. Bars are larger then they appear, def need the wind fairing to abate noise.


It also worked!


Great customer service

  • Can I Mount A Yakima HD Bar Perpendicular To The HD Bars Of My Existing Yakima Rack
    There is a solution that involves adding perpendicular bars to your Yakima OverHaul HD. However, it will not be by attaching Yakima HD Bars to your Yakima OverHaul HD. The HD bars are not designed to mount perpendicular to your existing roof racks crossbars. The SideBar Rails for Yakima OverHaul HD and Outpost HD Truck Bed Racks - Short Bed - 100 lbs - Qty 2, part # Y01153, will have the same effect. These side rails even have t-channels for other channel mounted accessories. I have included...

  • Does Mounting Kit for Thule Flat Top Ski Carrier Fit Yakima HD Crossbars
    The Mounting Kit for Thule Flat Top Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Racks # 7533998 is designed to work on crossbars that are narrower than 3-3/4 inches, and since the Yakima HD Crossbars like the 55 inch # Y01156 and 60 inch # Y01157 are 3 inches wide, the Mounting Kit will absolutely work with the HD Crossbars. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out if you'd like of the Mounting Kit for Thule Flat Top Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Racks # 7533998.

  • Installing The Thule Hullavator On Yakima HD Crossbars On A 2021 Toyota Highlander
    The Yakima HD Crossbars # Y01156 will work with the Thule Hullavator # TH898. Based on the pictures you sent in it looks like you have the crossbars installed upside down. The end caps have an opening on the other side that lets you easily slide in t-slot accessories. You'll just need to unmount the crossbars from the towers, flip them over, and remount them to the towers. The screw seen in your pictures is what holds the endcaps in place. Removing those will allow you to remove the endcaps....

  • Replacement Yakima HD Adapter for Yakima HD Crossbars
    It sounds like you have the Yakima HD crossbars similar to the # Y01156. These are attached and held in place by the HD Bar SL Adapter # Y03541 on your roof rack towers and the # Y03541 would be the correct way to replace one of those. The HD Bar SL Adapter # Y03541 works with the BaseLine, SkyLine, TimberLine, or RidgeLine roof rack towers. If the adapter itself is not what you are needing, then it is likely the tower. If that is the case, I will need to know which style of tower you...

  • Do the Yakima HD Bars Fit A 2015 Lexus ES 350 With A Glass Sunroof?
    I went ahead and spoke with Yakima and they said that you actually can use the Yakima HD Crossbars # Y01156 with the BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR, the HD Bar SL Adapter for Yakima BaseLine, SkyLine, TimberLine, and RidgeLine Towers # Y03541 and the fit kits # Y06175 & # Y06160 with your 2015 Lexus ES 350 that has a glass roof.

  • Does Thule Basin Rooftop Tent Fit Yakima HD Crossbars
    Hey there Toby, the answer to your question is yes it sure does. Yakima HD crossbars like # Y01156 measure 3" wide x 1-1/2" tall which is within the parameters of the Thule Basin Rooftop Tent # TH32VY. This tent fits on crossbars that are a maximum of 3-1/4" wide x 1-1/2" tall so it will mount superbly to the Yakima bars. You made a really nice choice here with the Basin # TH32VY because not only is it a roomy and comfortable tent, but you're also getting a cargo box out of it since it...

  • What Length of Yakima HD Crossbar is Recommended for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
    Since the tracks on the bottom of the Yakima HD crossbars that attach to the feet do not run the full length of the bar we can't guarantee that a longer bar would fit. There's a good chance the track wouldn't be long enough to fit. So I would have to recommend you stick with the 55 inch long setup with the part # Y01156, # Y33TR, and # Y03541.
