Recommended Roof Rack System for 2006 Honda Element Used For Roof Top Tent


I’m wanting to put a roofnest sparrow xl on my 2006 Honda Element. What setup would you recommend installing on top that could carry it? The stock crossbars aren’t strong enough.


Helpful Expert Reply:

It looks like your 2006 Honda Element has fixed mounting points, so you'll need to make sure that the center of each mounting point is at least 28" apart to use a Roofnest Sparrow tent. For a roof rack I recommend using the Yakima Roof Rack for 2006 Honda Element that uses parts # Y00426, # Y53TR and # Y00229, which will give you a durable roof rack capable of carrying the Sparrow XL. This system uses aerodynamic crossbars that will limit wind noise and you can add locks with part # Y07204 to keep the bars secured to your vehicle.

I've linked a review video of this system for you to check out.
