Can Canoe And Bike Be Carried On Q Tower Roof Rack On 2008 Toyota Camry


I have a 2008 Toyota Camry. Information for a Yakima Q Tower Roof Rack with Yakima KeelOver for my canoe. My canoe is 28 inches. Can I also carry a road bicycle together with the canoe??


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Yakima roof rack designed to fit the top of your 2008 Toyota Camry has a 100 lb weight capacity. You will want to keep that in mind as well as making sure you do not exceed the roof weight capacity for your Camry. You can check the owner's manual or with your dealership to find that capacity.

The crossbars that are included with the roof rack are 58 inches long. Depending on the distance between the roof rack legs you may have the room you need to be able to put a bike carrier on the crossbars as well. The parts needed for the Yakima rack are parts # Y00409, # Y28TR, # Y03536, # Y06123, and Y06153.

For a bike carrier that lets you keep the front wheel on the bike while in the carrier I recommend the Yakima FrontLoader, part # Y02103. This carrier weighs about 18 lbs. I have attached a link to an installation video for this bike rack you can check out.

If you are interested in a fork mount bike carrier, I recommend the Yakima ForkLift Roof Mounted Bike Carrier, part # Y02098. This carrier weighs about 9 lbs. I have attached a link to an installation video for this rack as well.
