Recommended Roof Rack And Kayak Carriers For 2013 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab


I have a 2013 Chevy 2500 HD, crew cab pickup and I want to carry 2 Kayaks, which weight 65 lbs each, on the roof. What roof rack and accessories would you recommend. I would prefer something with rollers for easy access. Thanks for your help


Expert Reply:

The roof rack I recommend for your 2013 Silverado is the Rhino-Rack roof rack. This system has Vortex aero 54 inch crossbars # RRVA137B-2, feet # RRRLKVA, and the custom fit kit # DK227 that attach to the truck doorframe.

The kayak carrier I recommend is the Yakima JayLow Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier, part # Y04073. This kayak carrier is a side load and has a built-in ramp that helps you load your kayak easier. This carrier comes with tie-downs and also with locks that secure the carrier to the crossbars. The carrier has a weight capacity of 80-lbs so you will want to make sure you do not exceed the roof weight capacity of your truck.

Since you need to carry 2 kayaks, you will need to place one of these carriers on each side of the vehicle.
