Default Roof rack for 2007 Vue w/o Chrom Roof Rails

Is there a third party roof rack system for the '07 Vue? My Vue IS NOT EQUIPPED with the factory chrome side rails.

If so, can anyone recommend an exact model manufacturer/model number?

Thanks!

-Eric

Spotted this on ebay:



Looks like these will mount on the roof without needing the chrome rails. I'm wondering though if I can mount a Thule or Yakima cargo box to these rails. Anyone know?

Those won't work.

Genuine Saturn Vue 2006-2007 accessory

They attach easily to your Vue's roof rails to help support your sports gear or luggage. Supports all genuine attachments you'll need to haul all your gear. For vehicles with aluminum roof rails (front to rear)."

They're looking for something that do not require the roof rails

Im confused, All he stated was that his VUE was not equipped with the Chrome side rails. He did not say that he didnt want them........right?...or am I totally missing somthing? Only in the second post did was he even close to indicating that he was not wanting the Chrome side rails.....

sorry to jump on this, but does anyone know where you can buy the chrome rails for an 07 Vue? The one we just bought doesn't have them and I've had zero luck locating some.

Default Re: Roof rack for 2007 Vue w/o Chrom Roof Rails

I'm guessing a wrecker would be your best bet....
Speaking of which, how much weight has anyone dared to put on your roof rack? I'm sure I've gotten in the neighbourhood of 400-500lbs...certainly not recommended, but what can one do when you live a ways from the lumber yard...not keen to make multiple trips. Note: I finally got a trailer.

So, a question to someone who has seen damage to the roof structure due to this sort of silliness, what do I look for? thx. I haven't seen any leaks...yet.

Been a while....m

Those look like the Saturn accessory roof rails.

And yes, you can mount a Thule cargo box on them:

Not a Saturn.
