Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Solution for Transporting 5 Kayaks Economically


Looking at the 66 or 78 rack and roll to haul 5 kayaks. Do I also need to purchase 5 sets of j racks for this option? I want ease but this would quickly add up cost in addition to proce of trailer.


Expert Reply:

I'd go with the Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier part # TH830 as it can carry up to 4 with each carrier and would give you a more economical option. You'd want two of these. One would carry three and the other the remaining two. Since the kayaks get carried up on end you maximize space too. This would save you from needing to buy a separate carrier for each kayak. You will need three additional strap sets as the Stacker only comes with straps for one kayak. For that you'd want the # TH521.

For that many kayaks you'll want the wider 78 inch Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08107.
