Can Parts of Yakima Round Bar Roof Rack Be Reused on 2005 Honda CR-V, 2005 Toyota Highlander

Question:

Hi I currently drive a 1996 Ford Escort Wagon I use the FatCat EVO and Kayak Stacker on Yakima round cross bars and towers. If I buy a 2005 Honda CRV with no factory roof rack, what parts of my existing rack system can I reuse, and what new parts must I buy? If I buy a 2005 Honda CRV with a factory roof rack that consists of 2 cross bars going the width of the car, what parts of my existing rack system can I reuse, and what new parts must I buy? If I buy a 2005 Toyota Highlander which has a factory roof rack with 2 side rails, what parts of my existing rack system can I reuse, and what new parts must I buy?

As long as the crossbars are in good condition, you can reuse the Round 48 Inch Crossbars for Yakima Roof Rack Systems # Y00408 on the 2005 Honda CR-V with naked roof. Yakima recommend the 58 Inch Round CrossBars for the 2005 Toyota Highlander, so I cannot guarantee that the 48 inch bars will fit correctly. Since you want to continue using the round crossbars, your FatCat EVO # Y03096 and Kayak Stacker # Y04036 will still fit to your roof rack for these 2 vehicles.

To add the Yakima Round Bars to the 2005 CR-V with naked roof, you will want the SkyLine Towers # Y00148, RoundBar SL Adapter # Y03536, and the LandingPad 8 # Y00228. This system will attached to OEM fixed mounting points on the vehicle's roof.

Yakima does not offer a roof rack fit for the 2005 Honda CR-V with factory roof rack. If your Big PowderHound and Kayak Stacker use the round bar mounts, these will not fit to the factory crossbars on the CR-V. The Big PowderHound can use the Yakima Universal MightyMounts # Y03590 to mount to the factory crossbars. The Kayak Stacker does not have an adapter to allow it to mount to the factory crossbars.

To add Yakima Round Bars to the 2005 Toyota Highlander, you will want to add the TimberLine Towers # Y00147 and the RoundBarl SL Adapter # Y03536. The 58 Inch CrossBars are part # Y00409.
