Unfortunately, we do not have any roof rack options for your 2006 Toyota Avalon which includes the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack part # 298-SX6000B. The Monkey Bars cannot be attached to the sunroof as the weight capacity would be drastically limited. If you can tell me what you are needing a roof rack for I would be happy to inform you of your other options if available.

Thank you for your quick answer. I need rack roof for transporting skies and snowboards and bikes in the summer. Can you suggest any solution for my Toyota Avalon 2006 ?

I actually have the perfect alternative for you which is the Thule Tram Ski and Snowboard Carrier Adapter part # TH9033. The Thule Tram mounts on a Thule hanging bike rack and will allow for you to carry up to 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards. When you are not carrying skis or snowboards you can remove the Tram and carry your bikes.

For a bike rack that will work with both your Avalon and the Tram, I recommend the Thule Camber 2 Bike Rack # TH9058 which is a cost effective option that will allow you to carry up to two bikes. It also has a tilting feature that will allow for trunk access without having to remove the bike rack.

If you do not already have a trailer bike on your vehicle then recommend using the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24870 which is a custom fit that install using pre drilled holes in the frame rail. I have attached a review video of the Tram and Roadway in addition to an install video of the trailer hitch for you. I know this is not the most cost effective one but is the only one I can see to carry skis and snowboards on your vehicle.
