Is One Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier Able to Hold 4 Kayaks  


I have a 2016 Kia Sedona. Do I need to purchase two sets of these to be able to hold for kayaks? Also how long should the bars be to do so?


Expert Reply:

You would just need one of the Stacker kayak carriers # TH830 for 4 kayaks. You will need some additional bow/stern tie downs though such as # Y04031. To determine if you have enough crossbar length for 4 kayaks you can measure each one from the ground to the top at the center of each kayak and then add it all up. The free space on the bars would need to be at least that much plus a few additional inches to account for the Stacker. Another thing to consider is the capacity of the roof rack. It needs to be able to support the weight of everything on it and some kayaks can be quite heavy.

If there isn't enough space on the roof rack crossbars you have now or the capacity is not high enough you could either get longer bars rated for more weight or put the kayaks on a trailer such as # MAL63FR.
