I do have a solution for you but none of the Yakima kayak carriers will work with the roof rack on your 2010 Chevy Camaro. The issue is that the crossbar spread (center to center distance from one bar to the other) is only 20 inches. You would need at least 24 inches. You can't change the position of the bars on the roof since the parts are contoured to match the roof line.

What you would have to do is use foam blocks # RL100K10, one set for each kayak. And there will need to be enough space on the roof rack to have the kayaks side by side. The bars are 58 inches long for the roof rack for your Camaro and the foam blocks will not need all of that length so it would be fine.

You will need to check the owners manual and/or Chevy to determine the weight capacity of the roof prior to loading.
