2019 Outback Wagon OEM Crossbar Compatibility with Thule Compass Kayak Carrier


Curious before I purchase. Looking to carry 2 kayaks for fishing and was wondering if you recommend placing rack in center of hood or can you favor the passenger or driver side for ease of loading. Does that make a difference? Was first thinking of 2 sets of racks. One for each kayak but maybe this makes more sense just not real keen on reaching to the center of the car for loading and unloading. Reason i bought the Outback was that it sits low to the ground. Does the plates work well for the factory bars of an 19 Outback? Thanks
