Default NP Roof bars

I'm looking for low cost roof bars for my NP Exceed (which has factory rails). All I want to do is transport a kayak. Thule, Rhinorack and Rola seem to dominate the market and theirs cost around $350.00. For crying out loud, it's two pieces of aluminium. Anyone know where I can get my hands on a low cost set (Sydney)?

Keep an eye on ebay - they somtimes come up, or you can often pick them up from auction houses where they remove all the extra bits such as cargo barrier, plastic deflectors and roof racks before selling a vehicle. Supacheap also stock a variety of racks and bars for factory rails. They look similar to the Rola range but carry a different brand.

WilB, if your only going to transport the Kayak every now and then why dont you just buy a couple of foam rubber blocks from say Clark Rubber that you will place on the roof for the Kayak to sit on then use a couple of Tie Downs to secure . don,t use the rachet type tie downs as to much strain on the factory rails may damage something, just use the pull / hold type, we use these all the time when transporting surf skis etc ,this will cost no more than $50.

,,,Plus $1000's in damage to the roof. Think of other road users safety too before you drive around with an unsecure load.

Thule roof bars to suit your vehicle are $244. You drive an NP Exceed, don't be tight and buy the correct bars for your vehicle.
