nautic stack

Carrying a kayak doesn't have to take up all the space on your roof rack. The Rhino Rack Nautic Stack is a vertical, post-style kayak carrier that allows you to utilize more space on your roof rack. With additional straps, it allows up to 4 kayaks so you can carry your group's gear on one roof.


Space Saving Design

nautic stack front view

The vertical design of the Nautic Stack lets you carry a kayak on its side. This opens up your roof rack to carry more kayaks or additional cargo. The rubber grips on each post help secure the kayak and prevent sliding during travel. When not in use, the arms fold down for compact storage and additional overhead clearance.


Multiple Installation Options

nautic stack install

The Nautic Stack has two easy installation options. For a quick application, the clamp-on system will install to aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. Simply place a post on the crossbar and use one of the included brackets to tighten it down. This method allows you to rapidly remove the Nautic Stack if needed. If you require long term fitting on crossbars with top channels, use the included T-bolt hardware. After installing the T-bolt hardware to a post, you can slide it directly into the top channel of the crossbar and tighten down the post in your preferred placement.


Secure Kayaks with Included Tie-Down Straps

nautic stack tie down straps

This package comes with 4 tie-down straps to secure up to 2 kayaks to your vehicle with built-in tie-down points. If your vehicle doesn't have built-in tie-down points you will need to purchase anchors (RRRBAS-2 - sold separately) to secure your kayaks. If you plan on carrying more than 2 kayaks you will also need to purchase additional tie-down straps and anchors. The Rhino-Rack strap and anchor kit (RRRBAS-RTD55P-RTD45P - sold separately) includes everything needed to secure 2 additional kayaks.


Strong, Durable Construction

nautic stack view no kayak

The posts are constructed of strong, anodized aluminum with glass-reinforced nylon bases for superior, rustproof performance. This is comparable to the construction of the Rhino Rack Vortex crossbars.

Choosing a system for transporting my new (to me, they're actually used) kayaks was TOUGH. I love my little 2017 Honda Fit, and I knew I would love my new kayaks when I got them. I don't want anything bad to happen to either! Also, my car is small and the kayaks are fairly large, comparatively. I've strapped a lot of things to a lot of vehicles, but this is going to be a long term relationship, so I wanted to get it right the first time. I've been researching and reading reviews for months, but I got confirmation that the kayaks were ready for pickup, so I needed to make a decision! I ultimately pulled the trigger on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with the 2500 Series Legs and Custom DK Fit Kit for my naked roof car and the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs. I placed my order on 09/15/21 at 6 PM. The estimated delivery date was 09/23/21, which made me a little sad. I really wanted to pick up my boats on Sunday, 09/19/21, but I figured I'd waited THIS long, I could probably handle waiting another week. I was very pleasantly surprised to receive an email at 8 PM the same evening notifying me that my order had shipped. AND, even better, the UPS tracking was showing delivery on 09/18/21 by 7PM! I was beyond excited, but didn't get my hopes up because shipping has been pretty hit or miss since well before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, UPS delivered my package just before noon on Saturday, which was amazing! I got everything unpacked and reviewed to ensure that I had all I would need to assemble the system - check. Nothing missing, which is always an auspicious start. Then I started reading the instructions - UGH. This is (so far) the ONLY thing I have to complain about. I have put together furniture that had clearer instructions. I probably should have gone to Google to find a [online] video, but I powered through with the instructions provided. Since I've never put together or used a roof rack before, I didn't really know what the final outcome should look like, so that made interpreting the instructions very difficult - the pictures were not super clear, and the accompanying text did not improve the situation. Now that I know what it looks like assembled, I get it, but at the time it was rough. I estimated it took me about 2 hours to get the rack assembled and secured to my car, and towards the end my fiancé arrived and helped me to realize that the foot pads were not properly attached to the feet, which made a huge difference! The kayak carrier was much easier to install, taking maybe 15 additional minutes. The foot pads rest in the groove on the edge of the roof, I assume over the frame of the car. There's absolutely no flex in the roof where the feet sit. The hook part of the clamp rests against the metal of the car, under the rubber seal, so I don't foresee any potential issues with the seal as a result of the rack. The doors close as normal, and the rack has no movement whatsoever once tightened down. I've now used it as a handle to pull myself up towards the roof a few times (I'm about 190 lbs), and I feel totally confident that it's not going anywhere. I now have ideas about how to use the rack to haul around the larger stuff that won't fit INSIDE my car (which isn't much - I HIGHLY recommend this car!). So, the big question - how'd it go with the kayaks? In short - perfection! I was slightly concerned about the boats overhanging the front or back of my car, as they're 12.5 ft long and my car is just over 13 ft long. Eeeeek! I needn't have worried. They fit like a dream, and even without bow or stern tie downs were very secure during our trip home. We took local roads instead of the highway because we didn't tie down the bow and stern, so we probably didn't go over 40 ish MPH, but I saw absolutely no lift (I can see the ends of the boats out of the front windshield). I will be using those tie downs in the future, and anticipate no issues with highway speeds under those conditions. Obviously, only time will tell how everything holds up/works out, but at this stage, I am extremely pleased with my decision and am looking forward to many kayaking adventures to come! I only have one picture at this point, but may take a few more and add them so anyone else considering a similar setup knows what they'll be getting.

've previously used the Yakima Kayak Stacker (old style), which worked fine but I always worried the straps would slip off the hook at the top while I was loading boats. They also didn't fold down, so had to be removed after use unless you wanted to look odd and cause a whistle while you drove down the road. They didn't have a universal attachment option, requiring adapters depending on the style and make of your crossbars. More recently I got the Thule "The Stacker", which is a superior solution. You thread the strap through a closed loop at the top, so you don't worry about straps slipping off while you're loading boats. They fold down after use and have a universal style attachment that fits around most styles and makes of crossbars. Good stuff. I really like the straps that come with these, as there is a rubber cover that slips over the metal cam buckle to protect your car's paint while you're tossing the strap over your boats to strap everything in. In order to shuttle our boats for river trips, we needed stackers to fit on both our cars, so it was time for another set. I had never heard of Rhino Rack before, but the lower price than Thile caught my eye, so I read about them and decided to give them a try. The Rhino Rack Nautical Stack used a closed loop at the top, which I liked better than the Yakima or Malone options, and came with the hardware necessary to install them into the C-channel of my Malone aero crossbars, which I wanted to try. I remember that with the Malone stacker, you had to buy the C-channel mount hardware separately. I really like the Rhino Rack Nautical Stack. They are a single post design, unlike the loop style of the Thule "The Stacker". I don't know if this cuts down on vortex drag, but it definitely saves you a couple horizontal inches up where the boats stack. The Rhino Rack Nautical Stack has textured rubber strips on either side of the post, which I believe is intended to cut down on vortex drag, but is also quite helpful in that boats tend to slip much less when you're just leaning them up against the post as you load up before you strap them. That's smart. The Rhino Rack Nautical Stack feels really solid. The mechanism for folding them down and locking them upright is easy to use and feels solid. Installation instructions were good. I tried to install into the C-channels without removing the rubber tubing in my Malone aero crossbars, but couldn't get the little squares to slide into the slots with the rubber tubing in place, so had to cut the tubing, slide the Nautical Stacks into place, then cut down some of the tubing I had removed and replace it in the remaining unfilled crossbar slot. That's not a knock on the Nautical Stack; just a tip in case you're trying to do the same kind of install I did. The one area in which I was less impressed was the tie-down straps that come with this kit. The metal cam buckles have no covering at all, so I'll probably still use my old Yakima and Thule straps instead and use these as backups. But overall, I think these are going to work at least as well, if not better, than the Thule option, and for quite a bit less money.

They have really held up after a year of use. I like that when not in use I don't have to set them all the way flat so the antenna in back doesn't get smashed down. Now I just wish I had better cross bars

Carol researched after I queried about this particular kayak holder. I needed to make sure it would work with my rhino rack that I also bought from etrailers. These work great and I'm looking forward to when my wife and I can get the kayaks out and do some paddling! Thanks Carol C and thank you etrailers!

Very fast shipping and great customer service! Prior to purchasing this, we were looking everywhere to find a way to transport 3 kayaks on one car. We were very excited when we found this available/in stock at etrailer.com as many places are currently out of kayak related items. We received it within a matter of days after purchasing online. Overall installation went smoothly and we were able to get out on the water sooner than we planned; however more comprehensive and clearer instructions for installation and tying on the kayaks would have made the process easier.

My wife and I purchased the Rhino Rack Nautic Stack to transport 4 kayaks. We considered similar products by Yakima and Thule, but the acceptable weight limit for the Rhino Rack was there deciding factor. Each of our kayaks weighs 38lbs, and the Rhino Rack was the only item that could handle this load. We were very pleased with etrailer's service and advice. George was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend buying the hood anchors and an extra set of the down straps. The tire down straps are far superior to ratchet-type tie downs that you buy elsewhere - they are strong and SOOO easy to use. I highly recommend the Nautic Stack and etrailer. P.s. we use a bike lock for the Rhino Rack and for our kayaks and they work great for overnight theft protection when we take the kayaks out of town.

Just tried out the system on my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek yesterday. It worked great. A Stacking system maybe a little harder to load than a "j" system, but if you're using crossbars instead of a thule or yakama systems chances are that you won't be able to fit more than one kayak on your roof. But the "post" or stacking design will allow it. So its worth the extra effort. Plus, you don't have to buy more holders, like you would if you went "j" style. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture.

High quality product. Well worth the price paid over cheaper, lower quality "copycat" type version if this authentic product. The well made, easy to use straps really seal-the-deal! Much better than messing around with cheap straps or ropes. Getting it delivered quickly (even with the free shipping) was a godsend for this past weekend because her and I were able to mount it on my daughter's Hyundai Tuscon, mount up 2 kayaks, and hit the rivers of Northern Florida without delay. The system is very easy to use. My daughter can now use it on her own when I head back north in a couple of days.

Love the rack and the ease of use that it offers. I use it mostly for the family kayaks but has come in handy for some other large items when I need them to work. Useful for just about any type of hold down effort since my rack doesn't have many hitch points of its own.

These guys arent just used by kayaks. You can use them as a general stabilizing component. Just dont be _too_ reliant. I had a 6 foot tower of gear around these guys and travelled 600 miles. Worked great. I tried to put a 17ft canoe on my little car with this to prop them up.... Dont do that. I pushed them too far. Theyre still in good shape after that mishap though!

    The Rhino Rack Kayak Carrier part # RRS520 and the Malone Stax kayak carrier part # MPG115MD are both very similar but the big reason the Malone is listed for only 2 kayaks is because it comes with two foam blocks for kayaks to rest on and then the Rhino Rack does not come with the blocks so it's possible to add additional kayaks without carrying them in a different way. Either will work great on a Malone roof rack as well.

A cost-effective alternative is the MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70423 which has a 400 lb weight capacity and has T-Slots for a kayak carrier. If you are wanting...

  • Will the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Work With Rhino Rack Heavy Duty 2500 Roof Rack

  • Thule Kayak Carriers And TracRac Compatibility
    Since the crossbars on your Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack, part # TH43002XT-501, are larger than traditional crossbars you will have to attach your kayak carrier to the channel on the crossbar. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding - 4 Kayaks, part # RRS520 . This option will allow you to carry the kayaks vertically. You will have to be comfortable carrying your kayaks on the side. With this item you will be able to carry...

  • Best Roof Rack for Bike Rack and Kayak Carrier on 2018 Ford Edge With Glass Roof
    There is absolutely a roof rack that will work for your 2018 Ford Edge that has a glass roof. I highly recommend the the Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack because it is strong enough to allow you to carry a bike rack or kayak and has a refined look on top of your '18 Edge. If you take a look at the accompanying photos, you can see how this rack will look when attached to a Ford Edge with a glass roof. The Rhino-Rack ROC25 is # RR26XR and uses low-profile aerodynamic bars to ensure you have a...

  • How to Transport 4 Kayaks with a 2016 Ford Escape
    To carry 4 kayaks you would need to go with the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 which allows you to stack 2 on either side of it (see attached picture). This option has a 165 lb weight capacity. There are 2 concerns when it comes to carrying these on your 2016 Ford Escape; room and weight capacity. You may have limited room for all 4 kayaks so the Rhino-Rack option may be your best choice, but even then if the weight capacity of your roof or roof rack is lower than the capacity...

  • Economical Roof Kayak Carrier for 2014 Chevy Suburban
    A post-style multi-kayak carrier like the Rhino-Rack Nautic # RRS520 that you referenced and the similar Thule Stacker # TH830 is a great way to transport up to 4 kayaks as long as the vehicle has a compatible roof rack. They are indeed a cost-effective option. But on a taller vehicle like your 2014 Suburban this type of carrier may not be the easiest to use in terms of loading and unloading since you typically need to get access to the center of the roof where the carrier typically mounts...

  • Which Kayak Carrier Can Fit Thicker Load Bars of TracRac Kayak Carrier
    The load bars of the TracRac Ladder Rack part # TH43002XT-501 that you referenced are much bigger than standard load bars found on roof racks. You'd need to use the Malone kayak carrier foam pad part # MPG159 as it can fit the bars of a TracRac ladder rack and allow you to mount 1 kayak per set of blocks. I also recommend using the Malone Bow and Stern Tie-Down Kit, # MPG306. This kit will include 2 straps to secure both the bow and stern of one kayak.
