    Hi there, I started looking for roof racks for my Prius. I saw Thule and Rhino seems to be popular. I was thinking of getting the Rhino-Rack JA2481 - Vortex 2500.
    I'm wondering if the rack has to have clamps to fit into the edge between the door or if there is another option for the Prius?

    Consider a trailer hitch and a hitch haul instead... Way better aerodynamics and you don't have to lift your gear as high.
