Recommended Roof Rack Components Compatible with Track Systems or Cap Rails


Wanted to carry a Canoe and Kayaks on the Leer cap what is needed and how much ? Thank You.


Expert Reply:

Many Leer caps come with the track included, but if not you will want the Thule Top Track Roof Mount System 42 inches long # THTP42, 54 inches long # THTP54, or 60 inches long # THTB60.

Then I recommend the Thule Podium Foot Pack for Aero Bars # TH460R along with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4 # TH450400. These feet will connect to the rails using the Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack # THKIT3101. Then you can use the Thule WingBar Evo Load Bars - Aluminum - 53" - Qty 2 # TH711420.

If you prefer square load bars, then I recommend the Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack for Square Load Bars # TH460R and load bars # TH712500. The locks and fit kit will be the same as listed above.

To carry a canoe or kayak, I recommend the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Universal Mount # S65145 since you want to carry a canoe or kayaks. If you want to carry both, then I recommend the Thule Portage Canoe Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Gunwale Brackets - Side Loading # TH819 along with the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830. You will want to stay within the weight capacity of your rack as well as your cap.
