The Honda Odyssey comes with roof railings but no crossbars. On our past vehicles I've always had factory crossbars, but I found that because they were always slightly curved, after market accessories never fit the best. With the Thule crossbars I have the option of removing them and they look great. These are the parts I got:
- No. 450R, Rapid Crossroad Foot Pack
- No. RB47, 47" Rapid Aero Load Bars
For some reason, I had a hard time fitting one of the crossbars because the railings are a bit wider at the front. Once I was able to get them on, the Thule Evolution 1800 cargo box I bought several years ago for our Mazda MPV fit great on top. (Here's what the cargo box looked like on our Toyota Sequoia.)
These particular crossbars have a rubber non-slip pad on top and a limited lifetime warranty. Yesterday, I drove with just the rear crossbar and did not hear any additional wind noise. This morning I did a short drive with the cargo box and there's a little bit of wind whistle starting faintly at about 50 km/h and is bit more steady and noticeable at 60 km/h. At this speed, it's not very loud--the radio/stereo will mask it but I'll report back on the noise once I do some more driving.
