Widest Crossbar Spread Roof Rack Recommendation for 2013 Honda CRV


I would like to be able to increase the spacing for the crossbars of a roof rack to more adequately support a 12 foot kayak. I saw most roof rack manufacturers make tracks. What kind of tracks could be fit to a 2013 Honda CRV with a bare roof. Can the tracks be installed without touching the headliner?


Expert Reply:

For your 2013 Honda CR-V the widest crossbar roof rack we have is going to be the Yakima roof rack part numbers # Y00409, # Y28TR, # Y03536, # Y06148, and # Y06152. The spread for this rack is 32 inches whereas most racks are around 27 inch.

I can't recommend you widen the spread any more than that or use a track style rack as that will require permanent modification to the roof of your vehicle.
