Installation of Roof Tracks For Thule or Yakima Roof Rack on 2011 Honda Odyssey


Is there anywhere to avoid when mounting this on a 2011 Honda Odyssey? Also, will the Yakima Skyline towers with the Landing Pad 1 works with these tracks?


Expert Reply:

The Thule Roof Mounted Top Rack System - 54" Long # THTP54 is longer than what the manufacturer suggests for your vehicle. I recommend instead using the 42 inch # THTP42 as the longer rails will provide less support on the outer ends. You simply need to install the tracks parallel to each other and close to a support for stability and strength. Close to the rain channel or cover on your roof is ideal.

I then recommend the following:
- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 53" Long - Qty 2 # TH711420
- Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars - Fixed Point - Qty 4 # TH460R
- Fit Kit # THKIT3101
I've attached the installation instructions to assist.

You can use the Yakima landing pad 1 # Y00221 (x2) and the SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Fixed Mounting Points, Flush Rails, and Track Systems - Qty 4 # Y00148 are also compatible.
