  • Clearance Between Skis and Roof with Thule Snowpack Ski Carrier
  • There are different carriers within the Thule Snowpack series (# TH732508, # TH7326, # TH7325, # TH7324 etc.) so I'll assume you mean the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # TH7326B. This is the carrier that can hold up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards. When we measured it with snowboards mounted, we found it was 3-3/8" from the snowboard to the top of the crossbars. This measurement is with the clamp style. If you use the T-track mounting system, it comes with spacer...

  • Is There Difference Between Rhino Rack Pole and Ski Carrier RR574 and RR574F

  • Does Thule SnowPack Ski/Snowboard Rack Require Crossbars to Install on Vehicle Roof
  • All of the ski/snowboard solutions we offer for the roofs of vehicles like your 2021 Subaru Crosstrek do require crossbars that run from left to right. This includes the Thule # TH732508 that you referenced. So since you have raised side rails an easy roof rack solution is the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA118B-2 and # RRSX100 which is a confirmed fit and also is a high quality roof rack at a better price than other racks that rival its quality.

  • Fit of Yakima Y02418 HitchSki Ski/Snowboard Carrier on Rola TX-104 59401 Bike Carrier
  • The snowboards can indeed be stacked atop each other so that there's two boards stowed on each side for a total of 4, no need to stow them side-by-side (depending on their width, they'd likely not fit side-by-side). The Yakima # Y02418 HitchSki will be compatible with the Rola # 59401 TX-104 bike rack, but you will need to loosen the bolt holding the rear most cradle in place and move the cradle slightly, but that's easily done. If you click the provided link, you can see a product...

  • How Do I Connect A Ski/Snowboard Carrier To A Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform
  • I will definitely be able to fund you a ski and snowboard carrier that can connect to a Pioneer Platform. Unfortunately, it will not be the Inno Dual Angle Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Locking - FMP - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards, part # INTX726. This ski/snowboard carrier is not compatible with the Pioneer Platform, it only mounts to your vehicle's fixed points.

  • Will the Thule SnowPack # TH7326 Mount onto 1-3/4 Inch Diameter Round Bars?
  • I confirmed with my contact at Thule that even though we cannot confirm with 100% certainty, the SpeedLink straps that come on the Thule SnowPack # TH7326 should fit around your 1.75 inch diameter crossbars on your 2020 Toyota Tacoma. The reason for the uncertainty is because Thule has successfully fitted them on their biggest crossbar that measures 1-1/2 inches tall (Thule ProBar # TH713600). If you want a ski carrier that definitely fits, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard...

  • What Roof Rack System will Fit a Kuat Ski/Snowboard Carrier # GRR6B on a 2021 Toyota 4Runner?
  • The Kuat Ski/Snowboard Carrier # GRR6B is a great choice that will fit round, square, aero, and elliptical crossbars as long as they do not exceed 4-1/4 inches in width. For a system that will accommodate the carrier on your 2021 Toyota 4Runner's raised factory rails, I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack - Aero Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails - Aluminum - 58" # MPG216. The AirFlow2 is easy on the wallet and comes with a 165 pound weight capacity. I recommend confirming with...

  • Can the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier Be Used for Fishing Poles
  • Yes, the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # 298-SK2420 will work with both snowboards/skis and I don't see an issue with fishing poles either. The design is very similar to that of the Rhino-Rack Fishing Rod Carrier part # RR574F which is designed specifically for fishing poles so I don't see any issue. The fit may be a bit tighter for the Rhino-Rack option is all.

  • What Ski/Snowbard Carrier do You Recommend with a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform?
  • I have a great ski/snowboard solution for you. Unfortunately, since the Yakima FreshTrack 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Locking # Y03092 only use a clamp-on mounting method, it will not be able to fit on a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform like the # RR77AB. This is because the crossmembers of the platform are too wide. However, we do carry a Rhino-Rack carrier that will work. For that route, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # RR574 (for up to 4 pairs of skis or 2 boards)...

Yakima ski racks like the FreshTrack part # Y03092 that you referenced would fit and work great on this rack. This would be a really solid solution to carry 4 pairs of skis or 2 boards.

  • How to Carry Fishing Rods on Roof of 2015 Subaru Crosstrek
  • The Rhino-Rack Ski and Fishing Rod Holder # RR572 is a great way to carry Skis and Fishing Rods. I like that Rhino-Rack has several different sizes available to fit your needs to how many skis or rods you need to carry. The mounting system will attach to the Crosstrek's cross bars whether they are factory or aftermarket aero, square or round bars. The included locking feature makes this one stand out compared to others available. If your son ever plans to carry a snowboard you might...

  • The solution that is the closest to what you mentioned would be the Yakima Hitchski part # Y02418 which is a board carrier that can carry up to 2 boards that is designed to attach to hanging bike racks like the Yakima Ridgeback part # Y02458. There is not a 4-bike platform rack that can carry snowboards as well. If you were in need of a hitch for your 2021 Tesla Model Y the Draw Tite hitch part # DT58MR is a fit and would be a great option.

  • What Small Ski/Snowboard Carrier Allows Me to Transport 4 Pairs of Skis on My 2018 Toyota RAV4?
  • I can definitely set the record straight! The Inno Gravity Ski Carrier # INA952 is designed to carry up to 3 fat skis or 2 snowboards. With that being said, we have another small ski carrier that accommodates up to 4 skis or 2 boards. That is the Rhino-Rack Ski/Snowboard Carrier # RR574. This carrier only measures 25-5/8" and comes with clamp-on mounting brackets and t-bolts to use with crossbar channels. I went ahead and attached a video that shows how tiny the carrier truly is.

  • Snowboard Carrier For 2020 Subaru WRX Without Roof Rack

This carrier will carry 2 snowboards or 2 sets of skis with poles. The carrier does not require a roof rack because it suctions to the roof of the Subaru with really strong vacuum cups. I know it seems like the carrier wouldn't stay on the roof but the cups have a pull strength of 210 lbs per cup. When SeaSucker was here they demonstrated how strong the...

However, the good news is that we do have a cargo basket from Yakima that would work perfectly for you. Take a look at the # Y07139 OffGrid cargo basket.

The brackets are 1-3/4 inches wide and the mounting feet aren't adjustable. You can see these dimensions in the provided photo. I'm not aware of any ski/board carriers that have adjustable-width mounting brackets. Because they're meant to be mounted on roof racks, I guess the manufacturers don't view that as a necessary feature.

The clamps are roughly 1/4" thick, so the bars on your Subaru Impreza will need to be less than an inch high. They will also need to be roughly no more than 3-3/4" wide. I've added a link to a video review of this rack, as well as a link to each of our Rhino Rack Ski Racks.

  • Will the Yakima HitchSki Rack Fit My Allen Sports Bike Rack?
  • While we cannot confirm for sure that the Yakima HitchSki # Y02418 will fit your non-Yakima Allen sports bike rack, we can give you a good idea of whether it will fit. The main thing you need to consider on your rack is whether the arms are close enough together to accommodate the smallest (uppermost) part of the HitchSki and if your rack will be able to clear the top clamps. The top measurement is 17-1/8 inches and the inward points of the top cradles are 14-3/4 inches. Please see attached...

  • Bike Rack and Ski/Snowboard Adapter Recommendation for a 2003 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Yakima HitchSki Snowboard and Ski Carrier # Y02418 that you referenced is just an adapter that will install on a Yakima hanging bike rack to allow it to carry skis/snowboards. You would first need a bike rack made by Yakima to use this. For a bike rack that will clear the back of your spare and will work with the # Y02418 you would want the Yakima RidgeBack part # Y02458. This has 11-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the back of the mast of the rack so it has plenty...

  • 6 Ski Carrier Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Compass with Roof Raised Side Rails
  • I have a ski rack solution for you, but since Inno doesn't offer a roof rack fit kit that's designed to fit your 2015 Jeep Compass there isn't a way I can recommend the Dual Angle Ski Carrier part # INUK729 for your vehicle. A better option would be the Rhino Rack Ski Rack part # RR576 which can fit the same amount of skis/boards but also requires a roof rack to be installed. For that the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK254 would be a really great option....

  • Thule SnowPack Carrier Compatibility with Round Bar Roof Basket
  • The Thule SnowPack Ski & Snowboard Carrier - 6 Skis or 4 Boards # TH7326 is a fit for round crossbars. If it is tilting, I recommend repositioning it and tightening it in place where it is level for best carrying. It will work fine on the round bars of your Adventure Rack Basket if they are similar to the 1-1/8 inch diameter of a roof rack crossbar. Depending on the diameter of your bar, it is sometimes difficult to get the clamps tight enough without damaging them. If you need extra...

  • Overall Width of the Yakima FatCat 4-Ski Carrier and Will It Fit Next to Cargo Box on 2007 Escalade
  • I checked with Yakima and the FatCat ski carrier # Y03095 is 30-1/2 inches long. If the cargo box is 28 inches wide then together the ski carrier and box have an overall width of 58-1/2 inches. You would need at least that much free space on the roof rack crossbars on your 2007 Cadillac Escalade for both parts to fit at the same time.

  • Does the Kuat Grip T-Channel Mounting Kit Keep You From Using The Pitch Adjustment Feature?
  • You will loose the adjustable pitch feature on the Kuat Grip # GRR4B when using the T-Channel Mount Kit # GRDMK because the adjustable pitch happens on the clamping feet only. With that being said, unless you're worried about the clearance between your roof and the skis/snowboard or want to mount to the T-Channels, you won't need to use the T-Channel kit. While the Kuat Grip is 4-1/2" tall and the SnowPack # TH7326 is 3-1/2" tall, I don't think that you'll find a noticeable difference in...

The SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Vacuum Cup Mounted - 8 Skis or 4 Snowboards # 298-SK2420 is actually the perfect solution for a 2021 Tesla Model 3 with the panoramic glass roof because you're not going to be able to mount a standard roof rack on it. The suction cups on the SeaSucker carrier are safe to use on glass or aluminum, and will hold well to the surface since they're vacuum sealed; you'll just want to make sure you clean it off well before installation.
