Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Chevy Tahoe and 16 Foot Canoe  


My canoe is 16. Yakima rack system says no canoe longer than 14. Why is that? I typically just attach kayaks and canoe by strapping them down to the rails no special holders. I also need to have a system that accepts a cargo box. What is my other best option for a 2019 Tahoe? Thanks


Expert Reply:

It sounds like you are wanting a roof rack for your 2019 Chevy Tahoe. I recommend the Rhino-Rack roof rack consisting of:

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 59" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA150B-2
RCH Legs for Rhino-Rack Crossbars # RRRCH4
Custom RCP Fit Kit # RRRCP43-BK

This system is rated for 220 lbs total capacity versus the Yakima 165 lbs or the Thule 150 lbs for this vehicle. The Vortex bars will work with your kayak carrier, canoe carrier, and cargo box. It sounds like you are seeking a canoe carrier and I recommend the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Universal Mount # S65145. There is not a restriction to canoe length on this carrier.

The Yakima Canoe carrier # Y04069 has a minimum bar spacing based on length of canoe. They say it is due to stability they restrict this, so a different style like the Swagman is a great alternative.
