Will 2 Sets of Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Fit OEM Crossbars on a 2012 Toyota Sienna  


Hello, I have a 2012 Toyota Sienna minivan with Ikon Motorsports OEM factory style crossbars PN 5-RRCB-TSNA11. I need to transport 2 kayaks. Do you think two of the Malone Downloaders will fit? If not, what do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

Installing 2 of the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD on your 2012 Toyota Sienna is definitely possible. When in the upright position these measure 17" long but you'll be taking a bit of that length away because you will be able to put the end with the loading ramp over the ends of your crossbar system.

Even though you can fit 2 sets of the DownLoader on your Sienna it would still be worth mapping out the distance and try holding your kayaks at an angle inside that length. If you have wider kayaks then they may not fit.

If you wanted to use the Telos XL Load Assist you can either get it at a later time with part # MPG351XL or you can get them with a set of the DownLoaders as part # MPG114MD-351XL.
