Yakima Ski Rack Adaptor


 Share

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a set of used Yakima Ski Rack for my 2006 RX400H. I just realized the mount that came with it does not fit with my factory installed roof rack.

I know I need to get a Yakima Mighty Mount for the adaption. Yakima site does not list any options for my car other to change the entire rack system on top. I am sure one of their Mighty Mount adapter will fit but which one?

Can anyone help? Thanks!

There is a yakima authorized dealer near you that will help you with that. If your going with the expensive yakima rack, might as well take it one step further and get the yakima universal mount with locks (one key fits all). These mounts fit any car with a roof rack. Be careful not to mount them on the leading or trailing plastic trim rail. They also mount the rack a little higher which can be an advantage for ski bindings not hitting your roof. Also be sure to take off any cargo that extends past the hatch line Before opening the hatch. :wacko: I know its a duh, but I did it so I thought I should mention it.

They've changed there line some so it appears ther are several universal options. I like the low rider max.

btw.. yakima has a life time waranty.

Thanks for your help. I am thinking maybe a Universal Mighty Mount vs. getting a whole new rack system. Is there any Ski carriers that work with the factory roof rack out of the box vs. all this conversions?

The one I am thinking about is the following: http://www.climbinggear.com/products/listi...ref=DealTime_CG

Thanks.

What your thinking about would work for a couple pair of skis or 2 snow boards. They sell an extender that lifts up one side so you can fit more (doesn't hit roof if double stacked. Lexus sells a similar ski rack only solution for about $140). The mount I suggested allows you to mount a bar that can have any carrier solution (ski surf, bike, basket, kayak etc.), not just skis and would also allow you to mount two ski carries one on each side.
