Hi there!

I am wondering if anyone has had luck with a cheaper option for roof racks for the third gen (2016 +) Pilot. I have an EXL and recently purchased a tandem kayak that probably weighs 100lbs. I hate the idea of scraping it along the paint if I need to load it by myself, but can’t really justify spending $600 to haul a $400 craigslist kayak.

To rub salt in the wound, we have a utility AND kayak trailer but they are kept at the cabin 99% of the time for the extended family to use.

Has anyone had luck with aftermarket knockoffs?
Is there anything cheaper than buying separate roof rails plus cross bars,


Many thanks,

Buy Craigslist racks for your Craigslist boat.

I don't know about your area, but Yakima / Thule components are easy to find on CL here. Going price is about 50%.

What year is your Pilot?

https://www.bernardiparts.com/Products/Honda-Roof-Rack-(Pilot)__08L02-TG7-100C.aspx

This is for the 2019-20 Pilot. There was some threads about whether it fits on 16-18 but I don't think anyone tried.

The rails and crossbars show same part# for all years '16-'20. Instructions on line at Bernardi and Collegehills. Download/Print/Compare step by step the rail and crossbar instructions for a 2017 and a 2019. If all the steps/measurements are the same for rails then it should be also for just the carrier.
