Otter, I just got around to finally fitting my Yakima roof bars to the CCV unistrut. As you can see in the photo, the bar is just shy of clearing the MaxxAir fan. I placed the Unistrut shim in the photo to show how much higher the bar could be if that were used. It works out to 1 5/8" higher with the shim.
I'm pretty happy I don't seem to need the shim. The top of the crossbar is about 3/4" above the top of the fan. The bars do flex a bit with the weight of the raft frame, so I'll have to keep a close eye on that when I load. Also have to remember to not use the Maxxair fan with gear on the roof!
