    Thanks for the info.

    That's disappointing. 100lbs is pretty marginal.

    Hello evmitchell - My Owner's Manual shows no such limit. Perhaps your Manual is different from mine? Where do you see this? What page/section?

    Hmmm. I just looked at the current Owner's Manual at Chevy.com. No mention of the roof rails at all, much less a weight limit. Perhaps the printed version is different?

    Talking Fit kits coming

    The fit kit for both the LT and the Premier Bolt EV just appeared on Thule France with their corresponding installation instructions. Fit kit no 3168 for the Premier trim and fit kit no 1857 for the LT trim. Support up to 75 kg (165 pounds).

    [EDIT on April 4th]

    Yakima has the fit kit for their Skyline roof system that is now appearing on their fit lookup web site for the Premier trim (nothing yet for the LT). My Yakima retailer tell me that he has some fit kit in order and that he expect them to arrive in about a month or so. Maximal charge of 165 pounds.

    On the GM side, seems that it is better not counting on them to made crossbars available to go with their roof rails. A GM Canada supervisor told me, without laughing, that the roof rails should be consider as for decorative purpose. So must be the 8 holes made for receiving screws !

    I got my Yakima roof rack setup last week (Yakima Skyline towers, 50" core bars, landing pads #19). Install was pretty simple.
    Definitely recommend getting the locking cores though. You can pop off the bars in less than a minute...which means thieves can also pop them off just as fast!

    Uh oh - this is the typical "now I can't find it" situation! :S
