    Trailhead Parking Guidance

    Feature Questions from a New Owner

    A few questions that have come up. I messaged my guide but no response yet. I tried reading (searching, more accurately) the manual. So questions... Crossbars. When did everyone else receive those? I think they were shipped to people's home? I didn't get them at delivery and was so excited...
