New proud owner of a 2010 RX450h SE-L Premier (in Mesa Red, pickup next week - can't wait...)
Looking for any suggestions on transporting surfboards without messing up the interior or ruining the roof/look of the car. I used Thule aerobars with surfboard rests on my old Prius - however the feet left marks and it looked a little clunky. Would anyone recommend Lexus' own system over Thule for the 450h? The car does not currently have rails - would I need to fit these and the crossbars, or just the latter? As far as I can see from the Lexus site there are options for ski/snowboard carriers but not surfboards- I guess I could use the Thule feet on the Lexus bars but it seems an inelegant solution for such a lovely car.
There's a sunroof, but presumably the bars/rails would lift boards out of the way of it?
In the Prius I could fold down seats and chuck a wet, waxy board in without caring - want to treat the Lexus with a bit more respect...
Any advice much appreciated.
