There are two models:
- the Outdoor has a flush fitted roof box. A close look at photos seem to indicate that the box engages the forward sunroof location. An interior shot shows the sunroof depression in the headlining...
- the Limousine is a "factory" high top conversion that involves cutting the original roof

Gave up on the Korean style cargo box and bought this one at Sears. Sears.com I should be able to pick it up tomorrow. I still have to order crossbars from someone. I'm really stuck on which bars to buy. The Kia cross bars are 275.00 at the dealership and they are Crazy high. Should I just bite the bullet and buy the Kia brand ones so I don't have to worry about fit?

That looks really sharp! How did you get your cross bars so low?

I've had to go ahead and buy the KIA crossbars, I don't want to waste money or time trying to find a cheaper one that will work. Everything I've researched has issues. I REALLY hate the Kia ones though, they're tall and unattractive.

I bought the Thule Evolution, it's about the length of the roof and grey so it goes better with my van.

I'll post pictures once I have it setup.

It's a crossbars from T&C. I just did some modification to adapt though it's reliability was not tested yet. I'm planning to change it with Hyundai Sante Fe's croosbars. Try try to visit Hyundai Dealership and fit those crossbars from 2015-16 Santa Fe w/o sunroof. If it will fit w/out modification that will help alot of us here. The Sedona OEM crossbars seems to reach heaven as it looks. Good luck, Thule looks sharp as long as it fitted with a decent crossbars too..

@ jaugent27, I haven't have changed it yet. So far, I like the looks of the current crossbars. Looking forward to use it in long trips. We'll see. I'm still looking from online even used Hyundai Sante Fe crossbars. Wish me luck, update you soon!

Has anyone found any aftermarket cross bars that fit the 2015+ Sedona yet? Sorry, I know this is an old post, but I was hoping maybe someone had some luck finding some alternative to the factory cross bars.

I have the Yakima round bars on mine and they look awesome.

They also used a Yakima setup on the School of Rock Sedona, if you wanted your bars higher up
