    Does anyone know how long the top bars are on the OEM gen 4 Prius roof rack? I'm looking to carry a canoe on top of my 2021 L Eco and these seem like the best/most affordable rack option, but I'd like to confirm they're wide enough before buying. Thanks!

    I agree. I measured roughly 36 and 5/8 inches of rubber on the rear rail. Seems like the black support corner has about 1 inch of usable space on either side of the center rails, so absolute max in my book for canoe sides would be 38 and 5/8 inches.

    was a very long top box. Almost a canoe.
