How to Carry Two Kayaks on a 2014 Kia Sorento LX


Can the kayak roof rack that fits a 2014 kia sorento LX with flush mount factory rails accommodate 2 kayaks?


Expert Reply:

The Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, # 59784, is the recommended roof rack for your 2014 Kia Sorento LX with the flush mount factory side rails. The crossbars that come with this kit are 47-1/4 inches long, which should accommodate 2 kayaks easily with the right carriers.

The kayaks may not fit if you just lay them down side by side on the crossbars, so I recommend using a 2-kayak carrier like the Malone 2 Kayak Carrier, # MPG115MD. This carrier will hold the kayaks on their side and it is compatible with the Rola crossbars.

You could also use a post-style carrier like The Stacker, # TH830, from Thule. We have demonstration videos of both carriers that I attached for you to check out.

Both of these carriers include tie-down straps.
