Carrying a Canoe on a Ladder Rack in a 1989 Ford Ranger  


Will these Thule canoe cradles clamp properly to the TracRac One crossrails?


Expert Reply:

I have a great solution for you but the TracRac ladder rack crossbars are too large for the Thule Portage canoe carrier # TH819. The bars are 4 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches tall and canoe carriers can't fit bars that size.

It looks like you have been looking at ladder racks. What I recommend is instead of using the TracOne is to use the Yakima Outdoorsman, # Y01136-Y00409. This ladder rack uses Yakima round crossbars that are 1-7/8 inches in diameter making them compatible with many accessories including the Portage or, for a Yakima carrier, the KeelOver, # Y04069.
