I would just add the OEM rack and cross bars. Or look at aftermarket options. Without a rack, you run the risk of damaging the paint, plus you don't have anywhere to secure or tie off safety straps.Anyone with experience carrying a canoe/kayak on roof of Ody without a roof rack that can provide advice? I take delivery of a 2011 this week and note that the style no longer allows fit of side to side racks. Advice appreciated.
