Rav4.3 with Roof Bars - Height

PostPosted by uniquestar » Tue Oct 03, 2017 12:34 pm

Hi All,

Not quite sure I believe the measurements in the book. I have to book a euro-tunnel trip today with my 57 plate Rav4 XT-R with Roof Bars on top and I'm not sure if it's quite under 6ft.

Is anyone able to confirm for me. I know I can measure it, but I'm in central London all day and need to get my train booked!

Many Thanks,

UqS

Do you mean cross bars from side to side or rails down the length of the roof?

Roof rails down the length.

I have some crappy 3rd party ones where the crossbars slot inside, so don't go above the height of the rails.

OK, just measured mine with a spirit level across the two rails and it comes out at about 1710mm.
Car is empty with tyres at recommended pressure.

Well I had roofrails on my 2011 RAV4.3 and I could see the top of the roof without being on tippy-toes :s_cool
