Same here - came with the vehicle, pre-installed.They came already attached to my Rav. I haven't seen a use for them unless you do a lot of outdoor activities.
reviving old post, Sorry. Manhog, did you ever end up purchasing a roof top cargo bag? If so, which one did you get. I see so many options but wanted to ask someone with a Rav4 what they are using. ThanksMine came with the rav no xtra charge. I tried to use them on the thule 527 bike rack (rack [email protected] and returning it). I will be buying a luggae bag for future trips. I can then put bike in car. Maybe the yakima model might work. I like mine, it does not effect gas mileage that much imho.
