i'm considering to get some roof racks for the element. My use for them is to carry plywood(I'm a painter that paints on panels wrapped with canvas). I don't need the rack to hold my finished work, I just need it to get my materials to my school. Getting a 6'x4' panel inside the element was somewhat damaging to the E( :evil: ). This is why I am asking for the width of the roof racks. Thanks!!

I am looking for a similar rack for carrying a large raft. I hope someone makes a wide roof rack with good tie downs for these applications.

The factor rack is only as wide as the distance between the roof trim which is too narrow for plywood. If you go with a Thule brand rack you can get bars wider than 48" to accommodate tying down plywood. The Thule bolts into the factory rack space so it is just as secure but you gain more options.

Yakima has not released their rack mount yet.
