How to Carry a Kayak and SUP on the Roof of a 2017 Toyota Tacoma


Hello, I was wondering if you could recommend a rack system that would work with the factory roof rack on a 2017 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab? I am towing a trailer as well so want to get a 10foot kayak and SUP board up on the roof. Is this even possible? Thanks!

If you have the full factory roof rack on your 2017 Toyota Tacoma with both side rails and crossbars then we wouldn't have anything to work in conjunction with this. However, if you just have the factory raised side rails then you can add crossbars using both part # Y00422 and part # Y00147. You can also add locks using part # Y07204. The crossbars are 60" long and are of an aero shape which will provide less wind resistance/drag.

As far as whether or not you will be able to carry both a kayak and SUP on the above system, this will take a bit of measuring on your part. The best way to carry both a kayak and SUP if space permits would be to use a j-style carrier like part # Y04073 for the kayak and a saddle-style carrier like part # Y04075 for the SUP. The j-style and saddle-style carriers both come with tie-downs.

I have attached a review video of each carrier for you as well.
