Hi. New member. Need a roof rack!

Hi all

 

Just joined the forum as I've just bought a 2005 v6 alphard. 

 

Delighted with it so far but have hit a slight issue with procuring a roof rack. 

 

I spoke with jap auto's Southampton (legend) really helpful. Says the 2002 - 2008 model roof bars are really hard to locate but he could import for c. £350 from his dealer in Japan. 

 

Just wondering if anyone else has had any joy closer to home. 

 

Any help greatfully appreciated.

Hello, I've also just bought an Alphard and have been doing the same research

 

It looks like these are a couple of options if you can find them or afford them:

I have a Canadian canoe so will likely go for the suction roof bars

Hi Guys,

 

For anyone who is looking for the roof rack for Toyota Alphard 2002 - 2008 I came across this:

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154540615511

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154543054958

 

 

 

 

 

I got one of them and I am very happy with the purchase. It fits my car and the quality is very good as is produced specifically for Alphard.

Hello,

 

I've just had similar problems getting a roof rack (I really wanted the thule fitting kit for my current roofrack but couldn't find it!).

 

I have now managed to sort it by getting the Prorack / Yakima aero through bar which looks really nice and fits really well, and I thought it might be good to post up details for anyone else in the same position as I ended up with a really nice looking bar for £250.

 

You will need:

S17 aero through bar - I got this from www.roofbox.co.uk for £175.

K988 fitting kit - this needs to be shipped from Australia, I got it from www.roofracksgalore.com.au which came to £75 including shipping.  It took about a week to arrive.

 

Much better than those crappy looking ones for £500 on e-bay!

 

Jay

Hi Everyone

 

I need a roof rack for my 2004 Alphard. I followed the suggestion given previously to contact Yakima in Australia. They eventually said none of their couriers would quote for sending to Scotland. I’m about to do more research and will post results, but if anyone has had success I’d love to hear about it. Don’t really want to spend over £400 for the eBay option ….!
