Expert Answers about Watersport Carriers


  • Recommended Kayak Carriers for Two 85 Pound Kayaks
  • I do have a great option for you, however the Thule Compass Kayak carrier # TH890000 won't be able to support your two kayaks that weigh 85 pounds each. The 130 pound capacity you see is for the total weight of both kayaks (75 pounds each). We do not have a similar 2 kayak carrier available that has this kind of capacity so your best option will be to go with separate carriers, one on each side of the vehicle's roof. This is going to make for easier loading anyway since you won't have...

  • Best Kayak Carrier for Fishing Kayaks on 2013 Subaru Outback With Factory Crossbars
  • We have a great option to carry a pair of 34" wide fishing kayaks on the factory roof rack of your 2013 Subaru Outback. To do this you will need to use a post- or J-style carrier to carry the kayaks on their sides because there won't be enough room to lay the kayaks flat on your roof. I strongly recommend the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier # TH890000 because it is a 2-in-1 carrier that has the necessary size enough to carry a pair of kayaks that are 34" wide (it fits hull widths...

  • 2 Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Fitting on Narrower Crossbars
  • I attached a picture of a single kayak carried by the Yakima SweetRoll Kayak Carrier # Y04074 and it takes up most of the roof rack crossbars which would be longer than what you have so I'd anticipate two not fitting but I do have a solution. For carrying two kayaks on narrower bars the Rhino Rack 2 Kayak Carrier part # S512-S512X is a really great option since the rack does not require much bar space and it holds them very securely.

  • Is Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier Compatible with OEM Roof Rack on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • To use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 on your 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee you're going to need to upgrade your roof rack system. The Hullavator requires that the crossbars stick out past the roof rack legs by at least 4" so that the arms won't come in contact with the vehicle when they are lowered. Since your OEM crossbars end in the feet they won't be long enough. For upgrading your roof rack system I highly recommend the Yakima JetStream system which consists of the 50"...

  • Roof Rack and 2-Kayak Carrier for 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan
  • Yes, the Thule Compass 2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH890000 will absolutely work for your 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer 4-door sedan, you simply need to add a roof rack to mount the carrier on. By far the best option for a roof rack for your Lancer is from Rhino-Rack because it is the best value for your Lancer - the rack is premium quality but with a better price tag than similar options. It also has aerodynamic bars for a quieter ride and each part of the rack is so durable it comes...

  • Extra Strap Recommendation for Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier for Carrying 3 Kayaks
  • You'll want the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT for additional straps with the Thule Stacker part # TH830. You'll want two sets of these since you have three kayaks and the Stacker comes with straps for one kayak. I attached a review video for this strap kit for you to check out as well.

  • Is the Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier Compatible with Bikes That Have Fenders
  • The Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier # Y07411 is a great option for hauling bikes in the back of your 2018 Nissan Titan. This is a universal carrier though and is more or less meant to help keep your tailgate and bikes from damaging each other. From the picture you sent in it looks like you have an E-Bike with fenders. While the pad won't necessarily scratch the fenders, I'd be afraid that your fender might get bent out of shape if you have the weight of your bike pressing...

  • Does Thule Compass Carrier Fit around Thule Wingbar Evo bars?
  • The Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier # TH890000 is a great fit for your 2020 Honda Fit. It has a wide mouth to make it easier for loading kayaks. It also has nice adjustability like J-style for one kayak or post-style for two kayaks. I attached a screenshot where Thule gives instructions for installing it on your Thule Wingbar EVO crossbars. You need to use the 80mm bolts included with this carrier to install it onto your bars. For your older kayak carrier like the Thule Hull-A-Port...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for Two Kayaks on 2015 Toyota Rav4
  • First, we need to get some crossbars on your roof! Since you have raised side rails, you can attach a Yakima roof rack system with just two parts: # Y00425 and # Y00147. Those are 50" JetStream Cross Bars # Y00425 and TimberLine Towers # Y00147 that mount to your rails. For the kayak carriers, we have many options. If you're looking for J-style carriers, we have the etrailer J-style Kayak Carrier # e98878. These are nice since they can fold down when not in use. You can put two up on...

  • Mounting Hardware Only for Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier
  • I believe I know what you are wanting to do and for this you would just need two of the Replacement Bar Mount Assembly # 7521741001. This is the piece that gets installed onto the roof rack crossbar to which the lift arm and cradle assemblies for the Thule Hullavator # TH898 attach. To install the new bar mounts to square crossbars bars you will need 4 each of the Carriage Bolt # 915-0622-54, Washer # 951061254, and Round Nut # 853-5439. If you are using integrated T-channels on aero-style...

  • Will Malone DownLoader Fit Aero Crossbars on a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • The Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG114MD is designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars so it should fit the aero style crossbars on your 2014 Subaru Forester. The Malone AirFlow2 crossbars are 3" wide x 1" tall and the DownLoader will fit this so you can use these dimensions as a reference plus if you have the T-slots on your crossbars you can use the Fit Kit # MPG6604 and not have to worry about the clamps fitting at all.

  • Will the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier Work With Scott Prospector Fishing Kayak
  • I reached out to Lockrack on your behalf about the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier part # 339-LRUNISETX and they stated they just actually released a new version of this carrier for fishing kayaks with the deeper hulls so instead I recommend using the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier with XL Arms part # LR54FR which they said would work with a Scott Prospector.

  • Can Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier be Mounted to Thule TracRac SR Crossbars
  • I do have a solution for you to use a track mounted stacking style of kayak carrier to your TracRac SR T-Slots but unfortunately the Watersports Adapter # THXADAPT11 is not compatible with the Thule Stacker # TH830 and there is no way to adapt the Stacker for a T-Slot application. Instead you can use the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 which has the same basic design and comes with hardware to mount it to crossbars with a T-Slot. I have attached a review video of this...

  • Which Folding Kayak Carrier Will Fit The Thule Wingbar Evo Crossbars?
  • We do in fact have several folding kayak carriers that will fit your Thule Wingbar Evo Crossbars on your 2013 Volvo XC90. I recommend looking into the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading # MPG114MD. This is a folding carrier that will allow your roof to remain low-profile when no kayaks are on top of it; I attached a photo to show what this looks like in the folded down position. This carrier will simply clamp onto the Thule crossbars, but...

  • What Is The Easiest Kayak Carrier To Install And Use?
  • If you're using the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier # MPG113MD it is just as easy to take the carrier off as it is to put it on. You can see how easy in the review video I've included for you! I would recommend locking them whenever driving with them installed. You can keep them on your roof for their whole life if you want. The materials do a good job standing up against the elements. There are carries that do fold, as this one does not. I use the etrailer J-Style Carriers # e98878 because...

  • Recommended Bow and Stern Tie-Downs to Keep Camera Views and Sensors Working As Designed
  • The etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier - Folding - Universal Mount # e98878 is a great option and does take the camera interference out of the picture. Many vehicles will want to use this type of tie down because of that possibility especially if there are integrated speed sensors as well. With kayaks you will only have one tie down on your hood per kayak so it shouldn't interfere with anything at all. You won't use a V-style like the photo you sent with the canoe.

  • Best Tailgate Pad Bike Carrier for 2019 Ram 2500 With Backup Camera
  • The best tailgate pad bike carrier for your 2019 Ram 2500 with a backup camera is the Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier for Full-Size Trucks # Y07411 because it combines protection for your truck, stable mounting for your bikes and a flap that opens which allows you to use your truck's backup camera. The GateKeeper uses actual cradles to keep your bikes steady and secure as you're transporting them, unlike other pads that just use straps to hold bikes down. This will keep...

  • How To Attach The Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier To The Roof Of A 2015 Toyota 4Runner
  • The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 can certainly be installed onto a roof rack that is not Thule brand. To determine what size crossbars you need, you will want to measure from the center of one roof rail to the center of the next roof rail as seen in the attached photo. Thule states that you need overhang of at least 4" on each side. If your measurement was 50" or less than you will for sure be able to use the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack - Aero Crossbars - Raised, Factory...

  • Does The Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier Or The Yakima ShowDown Make It Easier To Load Kayaks
  • It is correct you will need at least 4" of bar overhang to use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 or Yakima ShowDown Kayak # Y04081 so that the lift assist does not touch the vehicle during the loading process. For the roof rack on the 2019 Toyota RAV4 I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 which are aerodynamic bars that attach to the raised side rails of the Toyota and measure 58" long so will provide plenty enough overhang for the lift assist features.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2015 Ford Edge with Glass Roof
  • For your 2015 Ford Edge, the Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack for Naked Roofs - Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black # RR26XR is my recommendation for your roof rack. Then I recommend using the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445 which will give you the best clearance between your roof and the bars because it utilizes the tracks in the bars instead of wrapping around them.

  • Recommendation To Help With Reaching Taller Van Roof To Load Paddleboards

I recommend to use the Thule Telescoping Ladder for Vans - 9 Steps - 8-1/2' part # TH301404 the bracket easily attaches to the side of the van with magnets. Then the ladder snaps into the bracket so you can reach higher when you are loading the paddleboard to make it much easier. It also folds up and fits into a handy storage bag when you are not using it. I have...

  • Best SUP Carrier For Easy and Quick Loading
  • It really depends on the carrier you go for. For the Thule Taxi XT # TH810001 I recommend putting a tie down in the front. Just because there is only one narrow strap securing your paddle board to the carrier and when you're driving at high speeds the paddle board will catch quite a bit of air which will raise the front of the board. I suggest the same thing for a Yakima Rack like the SUPDawg # Y04075. Same idea here, highway speeds will raise up the front end so again I recommend using...

For a second foam block you'd want the # DTA924 and then for straps you'd want the part # TH521. You'll need a quantity of two of the strap kits since the Darby does not include any.

  • Rhino-Rack Storage Rack for Thule XL Cargo Box
  • The XL Thule cargo boxes like the Thule Hyper XL Rooftop Cargo Box # TH612 are at least 15" tall and the Small Rhino-Rack Storage Rack # RRRWHS is only 20-1/2" deep x 15-3/4" tall, which isn't going to be enough for an XL cargo box to fully set. What you can use instead to mount your XL Thule cargo box is the Large Rhino-Rack Storage Rack # RRRWHL, which is 24-9/16" deep x 25-3/16" tall, which is a large enough space for a big cargo box like yours.

Rhino Rack offers a similar quality and durability of the more expensive roof racks at a much better price point and they will allow you to carry a kayak carrier Thule Hull-A-Port # TH834.

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a 2018 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack and Have Load Assist
  • I do have an option for you but there are two issues you are going to run into trying to use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898 or the Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier part # Y04081. The first issues is that these are each over 40" long therefore you would not be able to fit two side by side and they both require there to be an overhang on the crossbars which the factory roof rack for a Toyota Highlander does not have.

  • Solution For Carrying Two Kayaks On Top Of A 2014 Subaru Outback
  • The J-style kayak carriers will certainly add a little more wind drag as opposed to the kayaks resting flat against the roof rack. For a flat-style carrier you could look into the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier # MPG107MD or the Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof-Mounted Kayak Carrier # RR581. You will need 2 of whatever carrier you decide on, as these carriers are setup for one kayak. I really like the Malone SeaWing because it has a load-assist on the back end which will help out tremendously. I...

You will first need roof cross rails installed. I recommend the Rhino-Rack crossbars # RRVA150B-2. You will additionally need Rhino-Rack # RRRLKVA legs and Rhino-Rack # DK427 Fit Kit to complete the crossbar installation.

  • Differences Between Rhino Rack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 and Malone Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD
  • 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.

  • Do Bow/Stern Tie-Downs Need To Be Attached to Hood and Rear of Vehicle To Secure Kayaks
  • The Thule Stacker # TH830 is a great solution to secure a few 10 foot kayaks on their side. The carrier does include a set of tie-downs but you will need to add extra straps # TH855XT and # 753-2030-02 for all 3 of the kayaks. When actually securing the kayaks onto the roof of your CR-V I absolutely recommend attaching the ropes to the front and back ends of the vehicle. This prevents wind during travel from catching underneath the kayak and trying to lift it off the roof. Simply looping...

For a j-style carrier, I really like the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier part # S512 because it has pretty much all of the same features (folding design, padding for protection, included tie-downs) as the top tier brands like Thule and Yakima but at only a fraction...

I attached a video below with this set on a 2019 Toyota RAV4 and you can see how they don't stick out too far. To go wider you will need to use the Thule Rapid Podium Feet # TH460R and the fit kit for your car # THKIT3177 The 47" bars are recommended but you can go wider as long as you don't extend past your mirrors....

If you've got a naked roof you'll want the Yakima roof rack system that uses parts # Y00426, # Y00146, # Y06153 and # Y06132.

Each of the 4 kayaks must have its own set of bow/stern tie-down ropes # TH855XT or something similar as well as its own straps to secure it to the Stacker, such as # 753-2030-02, or again, a similar item like # E98876-4.

For your 2019 Subaru Forester I recommend going with the Yakima JetStream Aero Crossbars 50" long which will be plenty to accommodate the Thule Hullavator. These crossbars also feature a T-slot top channel in case you decide to install any channel-mounted accessories down the road. If your roof has factory rails running front to back...

  • Is the Thule Compass Kayak Carrier Lockable

The best solution to lock the Compass would be a cable lock like the Thule Cable Lock w/ One Key System Lock - 6' Long part # TH538XT. The Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # TH849000 is a carrier that can be locked to the roof rack but only transports one boat so you would need two of them.

  • Will the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier Work With a Hobie Kayak
  • The best kayak carrier for a Hobie kayak is the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which is specifically designed for larger fishing kayaks. The Yakima BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and you can adjust the cradles to fit the exact shape/width of the hull on the Hobie kayak allowing for the best fit. The Yakima BigCatch will also fit the factory crossbar on the Subaru Crosstrek no problem. The Yakima BigCatch comes with all the required tie downs as well so you don't have...

  • Recommended Roof Rack To Use Thule Hullavator On 2020 Ford Expedition
  • I confirmed with Thule that the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Silver - 60" # TH711500 and Thule Rapid Crossroad Feet # TH450R will fit your 2020 Ford Expedition with factory roof rails. This setup is compatible with the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 so you won't have any issues using this setup on your vehicle. The Hullavator requires crossbars that hang over the edge of the towers at least 4" on each side, so the Hullavator will not work with your factory crossbars...

  • Which Roof Rack Will Allow Me To Mount 2 Yakima JayLow Kayak Carriers On My 2016 Honda Fit?
  • You can mount 2 sets of the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style or Post Style - Folding - 1 or 2 Kayaks # Y04073 on a 46" roof rack, but it will be somewhat of a tight fit. The overall distance from one end of the JayLow to the other end is about 19", so you may have a little bit of the JayLow hanging over the crossbar legs which is fine. Most crossbars, aside from flush crossbars, have a spot (where the towers/legs are at) that you cannot clamp an accessory, but you will...

  • Attaching The Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier To Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars
  • The Thule WingBar Evo crossbars do not require you to cut the rubber inside the channel at all; the rubber simply separates when you push into the channel so you don't have to worry about that. You can install the Thule Hullavator # TH898 by using the included clamps or by using the included T-bolts which install into the channel. You do not need to buy anything else since the Hullavator comes with all the necessary hardware to install it. If you happened to lose the hardware or maybe...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Hullavator and Kayak Carrier on 2019 Honda Pilot
  • Thank you for all of the information! While you are able to use the Hullavator # TH898 with your setup as far as weight goes, this kayak carrier does require the crossbars to stick out 4" - 8" out past the roof rack feet. Since the Thule SquareBars have a limited amount of space under them for the feet you can only use the 53" Bars # TH712400 but this wouldn't give you the required spacing for the Hullavator. I recommend using the Yakima 60" JetStream Crossbar # Y00426 instead with...

This is compatible with the Stacker and will allow you to carry both kayaks. I've linked a brief review video of this rack for you to...

I've linked to review videos of both below. One thing to keep in mind with this combination, though, is the height of the rack. Since the SweetRoll holds the kayak so close to the crossbars, you will want to ensure the OverHaul is raised enough so that the kayak does not come into contact with the cab of your truck.
