    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi all, I've been an EOC member for about a year now, have responded to a few posts, shared a few photos, but had yet to make any kind of personal introduction until now. Shopping for a different kind of vehicle was initiated last year when we got news of a baby on the way. At the time, I...
  4. Help with Roof Rack - Cross Bars Only

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    I purchased a 2004 Element and got a great deal - the only issue with the vehicle was that the roof rack cross bars are missing. It has never really posed a problem until now. I am moving across the country and would like to utilize the roof rack. Does anyone know where I can purchase cross...

  6. Yakima Roof People, Quick Question for you...

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    I just got a sweet deal on Landing Pads (#9) and control towers for $90... they threw in a set of 48" bars as well. I know that the yakima site says its recommended 58" but I'd like to run the free ones until Im able to source some 58s cheaply. Could someone with a yakima setup measure and...

  9. Where to get a small cargo bag to fit between Thule crossbars?

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Hi, I've got a dilemma...I bought a set of Thule feet and crossbars and now I want the capability to haul cargo up there, but I don't want to spend $400-$500 if I can avoid it. I bought a Thule Quest cargo bag from Target yesterday ($69) but it's about 12 inches longer than the span between the...
  10. Naked No More

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    The kayak racks are on and the Element no longer looks naked. From the '97 CR-V to the '05 Subaru Outback I just had to change the towers. From the Outback to the '08 Element the only thing I could still use are the Land Shark kayak saddles. 8)
  11. Rack to accomidate 24' ladder (12' length)

    Greetings. I have a 2003 E with the Yakima rack already installed with crossbars.

I'm willing to lose the Yakima system. I carried...
