    I just bought a 2014 v three with moon roof and need a solution for roof racks (only want to add the racks when transporting the kayaks). I have some Thule racks I took off my Mazda5 but don't think they will work (the bars) with the moon roof. The sale rep recommended vacuum suction. I guess foam pads would also be an option. Just wondering if anyone has suggestions. Thanks!

    I can tell you that roof top carriers can be used with the European Prius+/v with panoramic roof. Here are photos from a Toyota Europe website.

    Obviously, you can't open it then. But since the rack tower rest on the metal frame over the doors, it's basically a non-issue.

    I know that there is a brand called a Yakima Rack which comes with steel head trays and I have a few friends that own cars with moon roofs, one of my friends owns a civic and they said they have never really had a problem using it on their moon roofs before so it might be something worth checking out at least.

    Hey, John1701a, what brand are your roof racks? It looks like those will work - I want to check them out!

    I went on Yakima's website and they don't currently have a solution for a 2014 Prius with panoramic moon roof.

    Delay with availability info is nothing new. Hopefully, it won't take too long.

    Yakima is what I have.
