Will a Thule Kayak Carrier Fit onto Yakima Crossbars on Truck Topper  


I have a 2014 are fiberglass topper on my gmc truck with Yakima rails in the fiberglass, they look like channels when the rubber s are removed. Will a Thule kayak rack attach to it?


Expert Reply:

Roof rack accessories such as the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier # TH834 are not brand specific and will mount to almost any kind roof rack crossbar using included brackets and hand knobs. This particular kayak carrier is compatible with round, elliptical, aero and most factory crossbars. This is a J-style carrier that will let you transport 1 kayak up to 36 inches wide and with a maximum weight of 75 pounds. Two tie-down straps with padded buckles and one set of bow/stern tie-downs are included.

I have attached a video demonstration of this rack as well as a link that will take you to our available selection of Thule kayak carriers for you to look through.

If you just have the Yakima tracks with no crossbars, you will need to first install crossbars in order to use a kayak carrier with the roof rack. If you are able to let me know the year/make/model of your vehicle, I will be happy to recommend a roof rack system that is confirmed to fit.
