Is there a Roof Rack that Fits Both a 2007 and a 2010 Toyota Prius?


Hello, is there a roof rack out there that would fit my 2007 Prius as well as my wife’s 2010 Prius?

I have a solution to you. Unfortunately, manufacturers make customized components of crossbar system setups that are specific for each year/make/model of vehicle. I went ahead and researched both your 2007 and 2010 Prius, and I discovered that there aren't any roof rack systems that use the exact same components. That being said, there are no traditional roof rack systems that will be transferrable between your and your wife's vehicles.

However, a great solution of a roof rack that will allow the easy transfer a rack between your vehicles is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B. The Monkey Bars is a great solution because not only will it work on both the 2007 and 2010 Priuses, it also has one of the easiest and fastest installations out of all the rack systems we offer at etrailer. As far as weight capacity, the Monkey Bars include an impressive 210-pound weight capacity. However, I recommend checking with your owner's manuals to see if your vehicles can hold that much rooftop weight. If you want to add extra security to your Monkey Bars, I recommend the SeaSucker Cable Anchor for Cable Lock - Window Mounted # 298-BA0010 along with the etrailer cable lock # e98891. I went ahead and attached videos that explain how the cable anchor works.
