How Many Crossbars Do I Need for Yakima Track System?


How many crossbars should I get for my Snugtop camper shell with Yakima corebar track system 6.75’ bed? I want to carry my 14’ kayak and gear. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

You only need two crossbars for the Yakima track system installed on the camper shell on your 2018 Ford F-250 to use most accessories. If you need crossbars, I recommend the Yakima CoreBar 60" Crossbars # Y00422 with the SkyLine Towers # Y00148. This will give you the two crossbars and four towers to mount the bars to the track. This crossbar system has a weight capacity of 220 lbs, which is more than enough for your kayak and gear.

If you are needing a kayak carrier, I recommend the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. This is a J-style kayak carrier that folds down flat when not in use. It features padded bases and arms to protect your kayak from scuffs and scratches and includes tie-down straps to keep everything secure while in transit. You can also use a multipurpose roof rack holder like the Rhino-Rack # RRRMPHU to secure your kayak paddle to your roof rack as well.
