Will the Thule Slipstream attach to the factory crossbars on the 2012 Honda Pilot, or do I need Thule crossbars?


The Slipstream attaches to your factory installed crossbars.

Will the Thule 887XT Slipstream work on our 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon that has the factory crossbar rack? We would be using it with an Old Town Tandem Kayak.

Thank you.


Yes, the Slipstream will attach to the Subaru factory bars.

Thanks again,

Allen Wig asked on 2/13/2012:

Vehicle: 2006 BMW X5
I have a 2006 BMW X5 with Thule crossbars. Demensions 58 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide. I want to carry two Kayaks on the roof. Can I buy two (2) 887XT Slipstream or do I have to go with one Slipstream and one 835 Pro Hull-a-Port. . Is the crossbars wide enought to put on two slipstreams
Thanks very much

Hey Allen,

With the 58" crossbars, you would be able to fit 2 slipstreams. Each one takes up about 25", so you would have room to load the boats and properly tie everything down.

Hope this helps, thanks,

Rack Attack
