Recommended Roof Rack and Porta Bote Carrier on 2017 Porsche Cayenne


I have a 2017 Porsche Cayenne with no existing rails or crossbars and I am looking for a carrier to hold a 65 pound Portabote folding boat. Rhino Rack suggestion?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRVA126S-2 with Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs part # RRRLKVA and the Custom DK Fit Kit for 4 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs part # DK304. The Rhino Rack Aero bars cut down on wind noise and also include a rubber rumble strip that helps with wind noise as well.

I recommend to fold the Porta Bote flat and use the Rhino-Rack SUP and Surfboard Pads part # RRRWP05 so the boat does not get scratched. The SUP pads come with tie downs straps to secure the boat on top of your roof rack. I did some research on loading a Porta-Bote on your roof rack and it is suggested to make sure the center point of gravity of the boat is between the cross bars.
