Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Subaru CrossTrek for 120 lb Boat


I have a 2017 Subaru CrossTrek, and I am looking for a relatively inexpensive roof rack that would allow me to transport a Sunfish sailboat. The boat hulls overall length is around 14 feet, and it weighs around 120 pounds. Id estimate another 20 pounds for its mast and booms, which are approximately 10 feet in length. Do you think this is possible with the 50 or 58-inch Malone rack, for example?


Expert Reply:

For your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek we have the Malone Roof rack part # MPG202 which has a weight capacity of 165 lbs. This rack would easily have the capacity for a 120 lb boat but you'd also want to check the owners manual of your vehicle to verify that it also has the needed weight capacity.
