Will Two Kayaks of 58-Inch Total Width Fit on Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier DTA944-968-924  


I think I would love this product for my 2014 Silverado, but I have 2 29inch beam kayaks. My total width would be in excess of 58-inches. Any options for diagonal mounting, or is there a wider than 48inch option for the rear upright?


Expert Reply:

The load support items we offer, such as the Darby # DTA944-968-924, are not quite as wide as the 58-inch total width of your two side-by-side kayaks. But since most boats taper at the front and rear you may still be able to load your kayaks on this carrier.

To make sure just place the kayaks side by side and measure the width between the two bow tips and the outside edges of the two stern sections. As long as these dimensions are within the width dimension for the load support bar you will be fine.

If the Darby system works for you then you'll want a second foam block for the included cab crossbar. You could use the Malone part # MPG172. Tie-downs are not included with the Darby system so you'll also want to use cam-buckle straps like # 05605.
