  1. Hello everyone, I'm looking for tips on installing a roof rack onto my 2016 spark, which does not already have side rails. Specifically I need the crossbars so I can attach two J racks, because I'd like to fit 2 kayaks up there. This is our only car and I want to be able to transport both kayaks to the river at the same time to kayak together with my spouse. This is the only reason I'm looking for a roof rack right now, BUT if we had one that could support a cargo carrier up there, we could utilize that for our out-of-town hobby shows so any info on that would be a bonus. I've looked into rhino rack crossbars- they seem good because they don't require side rails but they're expensive, over $400. Has anyone had these and are they worth it? Or another brand that works similarly? Or, has anyone had the side rails installed (which would allow purchase of cheaper crossbars)? I can't imagine this would be cheaper or easier overall but I can't find much info about it. Any guidance is much appreciated! I'm also not very knowledgeable about cars so any important info I left out, please let me know :-) Thanks!
