How to Transport Hobi TI Kayak with 2008 Hyundai Accent


Hello team, I have a crazy question here, is it possible to put my Hobie TI 18foot kayak with two 10foot brand 175lbs on top of an Hyundai accent. I was thinking of cariers on top plus a hitch t-rack, is that impossible?


Expert Reply:

That's a lot of weight to put on the roof of a vehicle. Your best option will be to tow a small trailer like the CE Smith Boat Trailer part # CE48810 since the weight of your kayak is more than what your roof and kayak carriers are designed to accomodate.

For a hitch you'd need the part # 24795 with ball mount # 3594 for if you have a hatchback or part # 24760 with ball mount # 3590 for if you have a sedan. For a hitch ball you'd then want the # 19258 which matches the coupler size of the trailer.

For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 119178KIT.
