  • Is There A Roof Rack Compatible With A 2016 Kia Soul With Panoramic Sunroof?
    For your 2016 Kia Soul with panoramic sunroof, I looked at every option and there is not a roof rack compatible due to the design of the roof. To carry a kayak, you will need to use a foam block style carrier like the Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 12" Long - 1 Kayak # MPG154. Even using a foam block, you will want to be careful with the placement to support a kayak.

  • Inexpensive Way to Carry Two Kayaks on 2019 GMC Acadia
    For this type of application with your 2019 GMC Acadia I highly recommend using a couple of the Malone Kayak Carrier # MPG154. These foam blocks can be placed right on top of your Acadia's bare roof to support both of your kayaks and all the needed tie-down straps are included. You can even use those factory raised side rails as anchor points for the straps. This gives you a completely safe setup to transport those kayaks on your trip but it doesn't require you to install expensive, permanent...

  • Is the Malone Kayak Carrier - Foam Block Style Good for Transporting a Kayak?
    The Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style # MPG154 is a good option for transporting a single kayak. The carrier fits round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. Here are the steps of installation once the foam blocks are attached on the crossbars: 1. Toss the straps over the top of the kayak so that the ends of the straps can be tied to the two rails 2. You will most likely need to wrap the straps around the rails a few times to create tension 3. Put...

  • Foam Block Kayak Carrier that Could be Used on Pop Up Camper Roof
    You'd need a foam block style kayak carrier designed to carry kayaks on a naked roof like the 18 inch lock Malone Deluxe Carrier # MPG154 that you referenced since you don't want to drill into the roof. This isn't normally used on pop ups though so as far as coming up with a way to secure the straps we don't have a lot of insight we can provide.

  • Best Way To Haul A Kayak On A 2017 Chevrolet Cruze 5-Door
    I do have an option that will allow you to carry a kayak on the roof of your 2017 Chevrolet Cruze 5-door, however, as the 5-door models of the Chevrolet Cruze have only been out for a limited amount of time, none of our manufacturers have designed a roof rack confirmed to fit your vehicle yet. Therefore, in order to haul a kayak on the roof of your car, I recommend using the Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG154 as this is the only option there is at this moment to my knowledge....

  • Roof Rack Kayak Carrier for Hobie Oasis Tandem Kayak
    Some kayak carriers have a finite weight capacity, such as the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 which can handle up to 80-lbs. Since you have a fairly heavy kayak I suggest using a lightweight foam block carrier to keep your total roof weight load within the car's rating. As an example, the Malone # MPG152 features two 18-inch foam blocks and includes load straps and bow/stern tie-downs. If this is not wide enough for the Hobie you might consider using two of a similar smaller foam carrier, such...

  • Kayak Carrier for 2016 Honda CR-V with OEM Roof Rack Crossbars
    You are correct. For your factory crossbars on the CR-V you can use foam blocks like the Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 12" Long # MPG154 which will give you the components you need to secure the kayak as well. For a better hold, I recommend using a J-style carrier with your factory bars like the Swagman Contour Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs - Fixed Arms - J-Style - Universal Mount # S65148. This is much better if you will be doing highway driving...

  • What J-Style Kayak Carrier will Fit My Older-Style TracRac TracONE 27000-01 Bars?
    I have a great solution for you. I confirmed with my contact at Thule that since you have the discontinued version of the TracRac TracONE Universal ladder rack 27000-01, there are currently no j-style carriers available to fit onto the crossbars of that particular rack. However, if you still have the side load-stops, you can simply purchase the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 13' - Qty 2 # TH855XT for each watersport accessory you have. If you do not have...

  • Best Kayak Carrier To Use With My 2014 SylvanSport Go Utility/Tent Trailer
    I have a bunch of ways for you to get your Kayak up on top of your 2014 SylvanSport Go Trailer, but the Thule Hullavator isn't going to be an option because you will need to have 4 to 8 inches of bar overhang. Which, from what I can see there is no overhang on the existing bars you have. The best route to go in your situation would be getting a foam pad to wrap around your crossbars. I like the Malone Foam Block Cargo Carrier # MPG154 which are 12 inches long. Theses will fit any kayak...

  • Does The Yakima ShowBoat 66 Load Assist Work On A 2020 Toyota 4Runner With Factory Crossbars?
    In regard to the Yakima ShowBoat 66 Slide-Out Load Assist Roller # Y04068, Yakima states that canoe loading is not recommended when paired with factory crossbars. I really like this carrier as it is affordable yet very effective when trying to load a canoe with one person so I recommend going with aftermarket crossbars to accommodate this. Since it sounds like your 2020 Toyota 4Runner has the factory raised rails (not flush rails) then I recommend looking into Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack...

  • Cost Efficient Solution for Transporting 2 Kayaks on Roof of Ram Truck Cap
    The most cost efficient way to safely transport your 2 kayaks on the camper shell of your 2015 Ram is to use a set of truck cap crossbars and two of the Malone Kayak Carriers # MPG154. These are durable foam blocks that simply wrap around the crossbars to support a loaded kayak. Tie-down straps are also included to secure them into place. For the roof rack system itself I recommend the Rhino-Rack # Y02-490B that features tracks that get permanently installed on the cap (drilling is required)...

  • Inexpensive Way To Carry Two Kayaks on a 2019 Mazda CX-5
    I do have an option for you but the factory roof rack on your 2019 Mazda CX-5 is most likely not large enough to carry two kayaks side by side. If you can give me the width of your kayaks and the length of the factory crossbars on your CX-5, I could then confirm this for you. If by chance the length of the factory crossbars on your CX-5 exceeds the width of your two kayaks then you can use the Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG154 to secure them but you will need to order two...

  • Kayak Carrier Solution for 2006 Honda Accord with Naked Roof
    The issue with load extenders like the Darby that you referenced is that they only fit 2 inch hitches and would be too tall for a Honda Accord that also would have only a smaller hitch size available. We have foam block kayak carriers like Malone part # MPG154 which can install on a naked roof like your 2006 Honda Accord. This would be best option for right now till you get a truck since it's not a big investment.

  • Transporting Two 68-lb Sit-on-Top Fishing Kayaks on 2017 Honda Ridgeline
    Since your fishing kayaks are fairly heavy at 68-lbs each you could be above the total weight capacity for the roof on your 2017 Honda Ridgeline by the time you add the weight of the Yakima roof rack and the two Malone J-style kayak carriers. Their Downloader # MPG114MD and J-Pro # MPG117MD carriers weigh 12-lbs each so two of these is another 25-lbs or so in addition to the 18-lb weight of the Yakima roof rack. The kayaks and these items total about 179-lbs and that is more than most vehicle...

If you have a naked roof on your 2016 Mazda CX-5 then you'll want to get this fit kit # DK289, these legs # RRRLKVA and these bars # RRVA118B-2. J-Style Carriers are good for saving space on the roof but for the simplest most cost effective route I would go with two of these foam pads # MPG154. It comes with a strap and...

  • Putting Stronger Crossbars on Sylvan Sport Go Easy Trailer
    That is an interesting project you have there, and I called my friend in Yakima to discuss how it could fit. Since Sylvan Sport is not a brand we work with and can test on, we don't have the information to give confirmed fits. I can give my recommendation though based off my experience with kayak trailers. I am curious about how you can fit 4 bikes and two kayaks onto your bars. A close equivalent of the Go Easy Trailer is the Malone LowMax XtraLight # MAL75FR with its 78" bars or the...
