For your 2017 Chevy Equinox I recommend using the Thule UpRide # TH599000 for your bikes because of how easy it is to use and you don't have to remove your front wheel to transport your bike.

To carry your canoe I highly recommend the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # Lockrack # LR54FR for a few reasons. The first is that it can accommodate pretty much any boat style out there and the second reason is that this carrier has integrated locks that help grip your canoe and eliminate the need for any straps to secure it!

Then if you are wanting to replace your SpaceCase I recommend taking a look at the Thule Force XT # TH6356B. I really like this box because of the Black AeroSkin that gives it a matte black and the new body style will compliment your Equinox very nicely.

I'm not sure how long your crossbars are but I have attached a link to our selection of fairings that you can filter through. Just be sure that the one you select will fit inside the length of your crossbars!

Also, be sure not to exceed the weight rating for the roof of your Equinox. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

For a fork mounted bike rack from Yakima I recommend the HighSpeed # Y02115 because it is compatible with bikes that have a 9-mm quick-release skewer or a 12-mm, 15-mm, 20-mm, or Boost 110 thru axle. If you have the standard 9-mm quick-release skewer then you can use the ForkLift # Y02098 for a more cost-effective option. You can add the lock kit # Y07202 to either of these racks to lock your equipment.

If you are also wanting Yakima cargo box and canoe carrier recommendations then I recommend the SkyBox 16 # Y07335 which is similar in size to the Thule Force XT that I mentioned above and then the KeelOver # Y04069 which is the only canoe carrier that Yakima offers. To help load and secure your canoe you can also utilize the ShowBoat # Y04068 and the Hood Anchor Kit # Y07416.

I have attached some review videos for these options as well that you can reference.
