Re: 2005 Sienna CE roof rack???
Unfortunately, there were two different roof bracing structures used for this van, and the CE seems to lack the welded-in corner braces with the threaded posts for the factory roof rack. The question came up two years ago, and I've wondered if a good body shop couldn't simply drop the headliner and add suitable corner brackets, as the sketches in the body repair manual show exactly where they would be.
If I were cargo-limited, I'd consider a hitch-rack cargo tray. I bought a 22" x 60" unit at Lowes Homecenter made by Carry-On Products for around $75 to carry dirty stuff that I don't want inside the van, like bags of mulch, soil, manure, etc., for the garden. I've even carried lawn mowers on it. Simply add a 2" receiver hitch (Curt hitch on Amazon for $150), and you are good to go. No lighting adapter needed if you are just using it for cargo.
