Does anyone know of any adapters or ways to rig stuff up so I can use the racks I already have without buying more expensive Thule stuff? I am going head to the hardware store and search for some parts that might work.
I just wanted to see if anyone else had some awesome ideas.
I work with someone who is distro for Thule and Yakima, if im not mistaken, both companies make a retro fit bar that goes from across both factory rails. Ill double check with him and let you know what he finds/recommends
