Nice pic - & nice looking neighborhood. So different from Calif! Did you buy the factory cross bars? I stopped by a shop last week to look at Thule & the other major name brand (can't recall) & was reminded that our roof rails have the limited front to rear grab points. Using the factory cross rails + and adaptor will solve that problem, but put the overall rack higher in the air.
I need to make room for my mtn bike plus one kayak.
