Shark fin aerial on 2016/17 and roof rack

Anyone fitted a roof rack (Frontrunner type) on the new Fortuner.

Is there any problem with space and does the rack when loaded affect the aerial.

Thanks

I have also been looking for a roof Carrier for New shape Fortuner, Very interesting point or question.

I have realised that the Frontrunner when fitted has its own tracks and cannot be removed easily.

Option for this is to look at the Big Country Roof Carrier that has a track that is fitted to roof then the carrier can be removed easily leaving the track behind.

I suppose it just depends on if one wants to leave on permanently or remove now and then.

Looking forward to hear if someone has an answer for your question about Sharkfin / GPS

This was the answer from Frontrunner when I asked if my current Slimline MK11 rack would fit the new Fortuner and current 42l extra fuel tank.

Hi John

Thank you for your interest in Front Runner.

The new Fortuner uses the same size roof rack but the mounting system has changed. Which I do sell separately.

Unfortunately, the fuel tank won't fit as we are not doing an auxiliary fuel tank for the New Fortuner.

Please advise if you require any additional information

Best regards

How does it differ, can the carrier be removed now leaving the rails on the roof behind? Any fotos?

Weskus Tuna - Have a look on the Frontrunner web site. There are racks that attach onto the Fortuner rails but these have a limited weight allowance but easy to remove.

I removed the Fortuner rails (easy, there is a video on you tube) and the rooofrack feet then bolt into the existing bolt holes.

Hope this helps.
