How To Use Thule Hullavator On 2020 Subaru Outback


Hi, My mom has a 2020 Subaru Outback with the roof mounted rails that have integrated cross bars that swing across when needed. She is trying to figure out how to attach her Thule Hullavator to this system. When the cross bars are aligned with the foot rails, there is only about 2 feet of bar to clamp a third party rack to. Not enough front to back distance for a good solid attachment. Is there a way to remove the integrated cross bars and attach something else in their place that have enough extension for the Hullavator to work? Do you have any suggestion for a combination of parts that can allow her to connect her Hullavator to this roof system? Thanks,

The factory crossbars on a 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon won't work with the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898. They would need to be replaced in favor of the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar System part # TH711220, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT4063. This would be a great setup to then use the Thule Hullavator.
