Recommended Roof Rack And Paddleboard Carrier For 2015 Acura RDX


I have a 2015 Acura RDX naked roof. We will be traveling about 6 hours away with paddleboards fairly often during the spring/summer months. I want something I can easily put up and take down without a lot of straps etc. for when I am solo and my husband isnt with me. I also want locks for security. I am concerned about wind and the door jam area. Will it cause noise to come in the car? Recommendations??

For your 2015 Acura RDX, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex roof rack. It consists of:
Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 54" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA137B-2
Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Naked Roofs or Fixed Mounting Points - Qty 4 # RRRLKVA
Custom DK Fit Kit for Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof # DK337

I've attached a video of this rack on a 2016 model for you to see.

I recommend upgrading to the Rhino-Rack Locking Endcaps for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Metal Cores - Qty 4 # RRVA-LEC4 for added security. For your paddleboards, I recommend the Thule SUP Taxi Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier - Roof Mount - 2 Boards # TH810001. This carrier can hold 2 boards and has built-in straps and locking anchor.
