Roof Rack Fit on 2018 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum With Bare Roof


2018 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum. Which crossbar system will fit this vehicle? My roof is smooth, no rails and has a panoramic sunroof. There are 4 flush mount access panels along the side of the roof. Thanks.

We have exactly what you need to add a roof rack to your 2018 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum with a naked roof. The rack that will fit which is the best option for your Highlander is from Rhino-Rack. I really like this rack because it is easily the best value; the quality of the Rhino-Rack roof rack system is the same (or higher) than similar brands, but comes at a better price point.

Adding a Rhino-Rack roof rack to your Highlander gives you a durable, quiet roof rack, but without having to pay a premium just to have a certain brand name stamped on the crossbars. The exact parts that make up the Rhino-Rack roof rack that fit your 2018 Highlander are the following:

- Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Silver # RRVA126S-2 or Black # RRVA126B-2

- RCH Legs for Rhino-Rack Crossbars - Fixed Mounting Points # RRRCH4

- Custom RCP Fit Kit - Fixed Mounting Points # RRRCP37-BK

The fit kit and feet are going to fit easily in the fixed mounting points that are under the four flush-mount access panels you mentioned, and the crossbars will mount directly on the feet. These bars are aerodynamically-shaped and have rubberized vortex strips on top which disrupt the air flow going over the bars, which ensures you have a quiet ride.

They are also strong, with a 165 lb capacity, have top channels for using any channel-mounted accessory you might have, and are so durable they come with a lifetime warranty.
