Recommended Two Kayak System for 2017 Ford F450 with Sunroof Pulling 5th Wheel Trailer  


Looking for the best roof rack to hold a couple of kayaks on my truck. I have a 2017 Ford F450 with a sunroof and im not sure what if any will fit. I cant use anything that will cover the bed as i tow a 5th wheel.

To avoid your bed when towing a 5th wheel on your 2017 Ford F-450, the best way to carry your couple of kayaks is to use a roof rack and a front hitch receiver with a load extender. You may not be able to use your sunroof with the kayaks installed.

My recommendation is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65076 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle along with the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Bar # TH997.

Then I recommend the Thule roof rack consisting of the Thule Wingbar Evo # TH711520, the Foot Pack # TH710501, Fit Kit # TH145177, and locks # TH450400. This is confirmed to fit your vehicle.

Finally, I recommend the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Roller Style - Rear Loading - Clamp On # Y04082-2 along with two sets of the Thule DockGrip Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # TH895. This will get you an easy loading system like you see in the attached photo.
