2016 Edge Roof Rails - Order them from the factory or you're out of luck

When I got my new Ford Edge they didn't have the color I wanted in stock with roof rails. So I bought one thinking I could add them afterward. Well since 2015 for the Ford Edge and the new flush mount design Ford won't sell the parts and while you can buy the aftermarket cluggy car carrier offerings from Yamaha that clamp on the door drip moldings. This type is a temporary solution and the car clamps can chip your paint if you are not careful. Anyone have a good solution? I need rails to mount and haul my kayak and a Thule cargo carrier on top when I go skiing with friends.

    Only solution I know of is the Thule or Yakima racks.

    I did find an after market solution that worked. I found a solution which included Proline rails and Thule Podium rack. It is a little scary to install as you have to drill and use self taping screws into the roof. But the install actually is pretty simple and straight forward. The end product looks and works as well as the factory product and the cost is about $100 less. By the way I really love the Ford Edge Sport. It has the power, ride and looks good.

    I'm having the same problem with my 2019 Kia Sorento. I would like to to find the same product for my vehicle.
