Yakima Roof Rack and Carriers to Transport 2 Kayaks on 2014 Nissan Sentra


With the Yakima setup for a 2014 Nissan Sentra, can two kayaks be carried?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Yakima round bar roof rack system made of parts # Y00408, # Y00146, # Y03536, # Y06123 and # Y06170 is a confirmed fit on your 2014 Nissan Sentra and its 165-lb weight rating makes it suitable for transporting two typical kayaks. I have linked an installation video to illustrate that process.

It is a good idea to check your Sentra owner's manual to make sure Nissan rates the roof with enough capacity for the actual weight of your two particular kayaks, plus the weight of the roof rack itself, about 10-lbs.

With the rack in place you can use the linked page to view all kayak carriers that fit on round roof bars like those in the Yakima rack. A cost-effective option is the Thule # TH830 which can hold up to 4 kayaks.

We also offer load-assist type carriers like the Yakima SweetRoll # Y04074 that ease the process of getting the kayaks up on the carrier. The linked review video illustrates.
