Can 2 Thule Compass Carriers be Used with Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 on a 2019 Toyota Tundra


How long would bars need to be to fit 2 Thule Compass systems to carry 4 kayaks. I need to carry 4 recreational Kayaks on a 2019 Tundra with the 5.5 bed w/rail system. Right now looking at the Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 Truck Bed Ladder Rack Item # 59799 as it fits the bed rail system.

The Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # TH890000 measures 32" long so if you were to butt 2 of them up next to each other you need at least 64" of crossbar space. The Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 # 59799 which fits your 2019 Toyota Tundra with the 5-1/2" (with Deck Rail System) comes with 65-1/16" long crossbars so it will work for your application.

Just a few things to note, you probably won't be able to mount the carriers right next to each other as your kayaks will likely be hanging out past the sides of the carrier (see attached). So you'll likely be offsetting these carriers which can still work, just note that your kayaks will be hanging out past your crossbars so you want to make sure they won't stick out past your side mirrors. You can test out the overall width by standing your kayaks on their sides and measuring how thick they are. I would add maybe an extra 4" just to accommodate for the upright bars.

Attached are some review videos for you to check out.
