Since you have the naked roof without the raised side rails, I recommend first adding the etrailer Raised Side Rails for Roof Rack - Black Powder Coated Steel # E99033 confirmed to fit your van. Then I recommend using the Inno Crossbars # INXB145-153 and Flush Feet # INXS100.

We don't have any installers we recommend in different locations, so we simply suggest if you aren't comfortable doing the installation yourself that you take your parts to a trusted friend or a mechanic you trust to help you with the installation. We try to give clear instructions and videos when possible to assist with installation.

Thank you. Quick question. How do I select the 57" vs. the 60" version? of the crossbars? Which bike racks would you suggest? We will be carrying two adult bikes and two kids bikes (16" & 20" wheels)

For 60 inch crossbars you would use a different roof rack because the previously recommended one ended at the feet. I recommend the feet # TH710401 and 60 inch bars # TH711520 along with locks # TH450400 to secure your investment.

If you are looking for roof mounted bike racks, I recommend the Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # MPG2103 for all bikes 20 inch wheels and larger. For the 16 inch bike, use the Swagman Upright Roof Bike Carrier # S64720 which can be adjusted to fit the smaller frame.

If you want a hitch mounted bike rack, I recommend the Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # Y02458 along with # Y02466. Then use # Y02531 if needed for the small bike or any step-thru frames to create a top frame rail between the seat post and handlebars.
