Helpful Expert Reply:

Transporting 3 kayaks on the roof rack on your 2016 Subaru Forester will require a stacking type kayak carrier like the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 that you referenced. This carrier is your best option in a rack-mount carrier system and it can handle the longer tandem kayak; and has a total weight capacity of 165-lbs. It will fit on your factory bars.

The Nautic Stack comes with tie-downs for only 2 kayaks so you'll also need their Cam-Buckle Cinch Strap and Anchor Kit # RRRBAS-RTD55P-RTD45P.
