Roof Rack and Assisted Loading Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Chevy Suburban


I just bought a 2019 Chevy Suburban that I want to install a roof rack on. I need the rack for a kayak carrier. Do you guys have a kayak carrier that will help make lifting the kayak easier? It's a pretty tall vehicle.

We have just what you need! For a roof rack for your 2019 Chevy Suburban I recommend the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Bar roof rack part numbers # RRVA150B-2, # RRRCH4, and # RRRCP43-BK. I really like this rack as it attaches to the factory fixed mounting points of your vehicle's roof, has aero shaped bars which helps prevent wind noise and rivals the really expensive roof racks at a much better price.

Then for a kayak carrier I'd recommend the Thule Hullavator part # TH898. This will attach to the top channels of the Rhino Rack and only requires you to lift the kayak about waist height to load. The assisted shocks from there make the rest of the loading very simple. Check out the picture I attached to see the height that the kayaks get loaded at. I also attached an install video for this as well.
