Assisted Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Factory Crossbars of 2019 Subaru Ascent


Hello, Im looking for the easiest way to haul 2 ocean kayak malibu 11.5x31 on our 42-inch wide factory crossbars. I have a physical condition that greatly affects my dexterity but able to lift the kayaks onto our roof. I dont want to spend the big $ on the hullavator by loved the Inno locker as it would be easy with no bow and stern lines that would be hard for me to secure. Our malibus are stackable. Is there a way to get the Inno or a pair to fit our Ascent without huge protruding crossbars, or do you have another suggestion for an easy way to transport? We use our tow hitch for bikes. Thanks


Expert Reply:

The assisted kayak carriers are a bit more expensive but you could go with two of the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier and Load Assist w/ Tie-Downs # MPG113MD which is a fit for your 2019 Subaru Ascent and since the rack is wider it could fit on the opposite ends of the crossbars and have space for both. It's a rear loading assisted setup.

I attached a review video for more info on this carrier for you to check out as well.
