Here's the 960 with my free Thule racks. I have Volvo OEM Thule racks that mount to the factory racks that are on the car that will be going on shortly. If only I had a picture of it with my kayak, bike, surf board or snow board up top...

When I first got the car. Before e-codes, flat black grill headlight wiper delete, any accidents and side marker lights.

After the first accident, headlight wiper deletes and e-codes.

After the second accident and after e-codes, flat black grill and side marker lights.

3 load bars to fit tandems (we have two) as well as single bikes. Without the ridiculously expensive tandem mount they sell. I just use the BOA mounts with the separate short wheel tray, and move it from the middle to the rear bar as needed.

Just get on eBay. Get some rain gutter feet, then some load bars, then some attachment accessories.

I got all my rack stuff on eBay for not much $.

But i like it better without the roof rack/bars. They make a lot of noise at highway speeds.

Nah. I don't even own a digital camera, it would take weeks before I posted pics.

Same rack moves from the Amazon to the 240 with only minor adjustments.

The amazon though has a stock rack which has to be removed to mount the Yak rack. I could always use the Yak mount spacers to raise the load bars, but I don't use the rack on the wagon that often, and now that I have a trailer hitch, I probably won't.

Right off on the hunt;

This is what I have on line:



(note very low back end... rear shocks blew about 2 weeks before hand...oops)


Do I win for the most on the roof?!


Only one I've got left of that; fully loaded with gear for moving to France for 6 months; went over 2 up, but with 5 people's gear in the car and still got 33mpg ish!


Not mine, lifted from a very talented kayakers website (Debs Pinniger)



Not my canoe, but one from work


Oh yeah, the rack is now 100% Thule (and branded as that) having been 100% until I broke the feet pack multiple times, then just replaced those with Thule feet and no more problems... next investment is to get some of the commercial vehicle bars as they can be over wide
