Best Roof Rack for Carrying 2 Kayaks on a 2016 Ram 1500


What is the best Roof rack for a 2016 Dodge 1500 to carry 210 foot kayaks


Expert Reply:

My recommendation would be the Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System which is composed of part # Y00423, part # Y28TR, and part # Y06135. This sturdy, aero bar package reduces wind noise and has a sleek look to compliment your Ram 1500. I also recommend using the J-Style Kayak Carriers part # E98878 for the kayaks you plan on carrying. This carrier comes complete with necessary tie downs you'll need for safe transport that won't scratch your paint.

While the recommended Yakima bars have 220 pound capacity, the roof of your Ram 1500 might may be different. Also the size and the weight of the kayaks being used could affect whether your roof or a trailer option would make more sense. I've added a link to a video review for you to check out.

Another option for hauling 2 kayaks is the Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Kayaks # MPG461G2. While this is more of an investment and would require space to store, it would be far easier to load and capacity would not be a concern.
