I have a way for you to use a RhinoRack Universal Pioneer Platform like the # RR42115BF, but you would need to first install a roof rack on your 2012 Honda Odyssey. This Pioneer platform is 47" wide, so it will fit on your roof without hanging over.

Since your 2012 Odyssey has a naked roof, you will need to mount roof tracks on the roof to install a roof rack; I recommend using the Thule Roof Rack system that uses parts # TH711420, # THTP42, # TH460R and # THKIT3101. You will need to drill into the roof to install the # THTP42 tracks in order to install the roof rack system, but this would be the only solution available and will give you something that you can mount the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform # RR42115BF to.

I've linked some review videos of these parts that I recommend checking out.
