Hi – Does REI sell an adapter that would clamp onto my OEM rack, so that I could use Yakima cross bars? Here's the situation:
I have a pop-up truck camper, with an OEM aluminum rack (support bars are approximately 1” in diameter, square). The rack is lower than the roof vent and solar panels on my camper. I want to add my Yakima rack system to the OEM rack so that I can use all my Yakima gear (cross bars, cargo basket, bike carrier, etc) on top. And so my kayak doesn’t hit the solar panels and vent.

The Yakima Timberline Towers should work great paired with your choice of bars. If you currently have round bars you will need the round bar adapter sl . They would wrap around your OEM bars and should provide your kayak clearance above the roof vent and solar panels.
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
