If you use the same width bars as you used on the escape then why can't you fit the same number of attachments on top of the Acadia? There shouldn't be any difference.mtnbound said:WOW - thanks for these pics! I'm a newb to the board and we're at the final stages of deciding on the Acadia. We have 2 dogs - about the same size as yours, no kids (yet), and envision hauling virtually everything you've got. I'm rather disappointed at the lack of roof-rack options and overall attachment fitting/flexibility. Even on our much smaller Ford Escape, I can get a storage box and 2 bike trays (fork mounted, with bikes facing opposite directions).
I guess I had assumed with such a larger vehicle compared to what we already had, that there wouldn't be any issues at all. Glad you had posted all of this - I'll have to do a bit more research before we drop the cash!
