Can I Use the Same Thule Roof Rack on a 2017 Subaru Forester and 2009 Honda CR-V


I have the Thule Hullavator mounted on Thule square bars with Thule #450 podiums. I have this setup to use on my 2017 Subaru Forester. I also have a 2009 Honda CRV with the mounting points. My question is is there any way I can have my current Hullavator set up be interchangeable between the two vehicles? Is it possible to install raised side rails on the Honda thereby allowing the e 450 podiums to be used on both cars?

We do not have a way to add raised side rails on the roof of your 2009 Honda CR-V but I do have a solution for you.

From what you told me it sounds like you are using the (discontinued) Thule Square Load Bars THLB50 and the (discontinued) Crossroad Foot Pack 450 on your 2017 Subaru Forester. Your CR-V won't use the same foot pack but you can use the (discontinued) Podium Foot Pack TH460 and the Fit Kit # THKIT3042 on your CR-V and then you will just have to swap the square load bars over when you want to use the CR-V.

I also recommend using the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400 on your Podium Foot Pack to help deter theft. If you would like to make the locks on both of your roof racks keyed alike you can use part # TH450800.
