Roof Rack And 3-Kayak Carrier for 2016 Honda Accord


Im looking to buy a roof rack and kayak rack to transport 3 kayaks on my naked roof 2016 Honda Accord 4 dr sedan no sun roof. Since we want to carry 3 x 40 lb recreational kayaks, plus the weight of the racks themselves, I was only looking at the racks weighted for 165 max loads. I was looking at the Thule Roof Kit with WingBar Evo Crossbars, alumin. Silver 53, plus the Thule stacker rooftop multi kayak Carrier. Will these work well for us?


Expert Reply:

The Thule WingBar Evo roof rack, which would use the # TH711400 crossbars, the # TH710501 roof rack feet and the # TH145208 fit kit. This kit would work well, and would provide 165 lb capacity as you stated. Since you're wanting to carry more than two kayaks, The Stacker from Thule, part # TH830 would be my recommendation. The Stacker includes tie down straps and bow/stern tie downs for one kayak, so you'd need additional sets using part # E98876-4 which includes 4 additional straps and additional bow/stern tie downs using two sets of part # TH855XT.

I've linked to a product demonstration video for the Thule Stacker Kayak carrier.
