    Hi I'm new here, I'm not sure if this is the place to post this but I had a question regarding the oem roof rack load capacity. I read somewhere it was between 100-150 lbs I don't know the exact number maybe someone can correct me. Is this weight limit for when the car is moving or parked? I...

    Combining two questions into one. I have a 2013 RAV4 XLE AWD. It already has the Toyota roof rails and cross bars on top. I have to move soon so I'm thinking of installing a tow hitch receiver and putting a basket on top. My Toyota dealer quoted me ~$400 for the trailer hitch (I believe parts...

    Hi everyone! Do the roof rails have a different load capacity than the cross bars? I currently have factory installed roof rails with factory cross bars. I am looking to swap out the OEM cross bars and install Thule cross bars to hopefully put a roof top tent up there. In my research, I found...

    can anyone suggest a roof rack solution for my 99 5dr? I wan to be able to hold upwards of 250 lbs and am under the impression that loads of that capacity are too much for the OEM crossbars. Also I want to be able to use this system in off-road scenarios.

    Hi Everyone, Got my 2019 XLE AWD a week ago and I'm already looking at how I could make it look prettier. The car did not come with the roof rails so I'd like to install some type of rack. Like many RAV4 owners, I'm looking at installing the Prinsu Rack and love how low profile and flat it...

    Hey guys I have a 2016 SE and am looking to get a prinsu rack. On their website, they say they make one for the 4th (mine) and 5th gen however when you go to the instruction page, the instruction manual linked under the 4th gen install guide is actually for the 5th gen. I’m wondering if anyone...

    Got this boi at the end of February as a not-heavily-used car out of college like my previous cars were. I love the sport trim with the V6 and everything else about it. De-badged a lot of the rear hatch and painted the rear emblems black and the front Toyota emblem red. The aluminum wheels...

    Hi everyone!! I have just recently purchased a 2020 RAV4 hybrid xle and I’m trying to figure out what the best roof rack system would be.

    I am looking to install a roof rack on my 2020 XLE Premium and eventually a roof basket and awning. I'm having a hard time finding information on roof racks so I thought I'd start up a thread to discuss. If anyone has any first hand experiences with installs, suggestions, or any links to info...

    So I mounted my old school thule square bar rack and Thule Frontier cargo box on the Rav. This is a box they don't make anymore but its specs from the manual I still have are 11 cubic feet. 88.5in(l) x 21.2in(w) x 15.7in(h). I was also fully loaded. I estimate total including rack, luggage...

    Hi. I have the "key," turned it, flipped all 4 cross bar flaps up, and then tried to turn the flaps to open the cross bar clamps enough to remove the cross bars, but the flaps won't turn. How do I do it? Is there a video anywhere? This is the kind of cross bars I have. In the video the flaps...
