Dedicated thread for Wagon roof setups like your rails, bars, boxes, baskets, lights, bike carriers, etc...

Please be sure to post not only pictures, but information about what parts are used!

Would love to see some inspiration and contribute my own shortly. :)

Thule Aeroblade crossbars and I forget the brand of the roof pouch. Only used it once, so far, but it works great. (I had a better pic, but can't find it.) I've also carried all sorts of stuff on the Thule bars: A mattress, fencing, misc lumber, 2x4" metal tubing, etc.

Found these Volvo Wing profile for raised rails fr a '10 Volvo XC70 off Craigslist from a Volvo enthusiast.Inexpensive$50 vs Thule Aeroblades and fits really well.
Both front and rear Wing Blades are spring loaded and fully adjustable forward and rear.Comes with OEM Tool.
Had to cut the front 4 in and 2 in rear but hardware goes back in the blades like original.
Volvo part number 31454714 for more info.220 max load capacity vs 100 lbs for my old Subaru bars.
Just another option for Inexpensive used crossbars.perfect fit too.

Which fork mounts are those ? I presume those are Thule Crossroads WITH ARB 47's racks?

Here***8217;s my setup:

These are Whispbar base mounts and the Whispbar wb200 bike mount. Whispbar was actually acquired by Yakima a couple of years back and I found these for a screaming deal on eBay. The setup would have cost ~$700 new and I got it for sub 3.

I really like the look of the rack. It***8217;s ultra low profile, the silver color coordinates well with the chrome trim / wheels and the sleek shape of the bike rack almost perfectly matches the roofline.

edit: dang the resolution blows on these tapatalk pics. Oh well.

Base bars:




Bike rack:
