How to Transport a Canoe or Kayak with a 2021 Airstream Interstate Nineteen Motorhome


Do you have rack that will fit airstream interstate 19, 2021


Expert Reply:

If you're looking to transport a canoe or kayak with your 2021 Airstream Interstate Nineteen Motorhome, then you have two options.

The first is to use a roof rack system. Unfortunately, your motorhome does not have a custom fit roof rack, so there are a few pieces needed in order to mount one to your roof. First, you need a track, part # THTP42. These will be what mount to the roof. Then, you need a fit kit. For this setup, I recommend part # THKIT3101 for the Thule Podium Feet. Next is the feet themselves, part # TH460R. Finally, you will need the bars. I recommend the WingBar Evo, part # TH711520. They are 60" long and aero-style. I've linked to a video review of these bars along with the Podium Feet (the other parts are different, but you can see what these bars are capable of).

With your roof rack in place, you will need a canoe/kayak carrier. I recommend the Malone FoldAway-5, part # MAL38FR. This carrier gives you plenty of options on how you can carry a kayak. One of the positions is also suitable for a canoe.

Of course, if your motorhome has a hitch and you'd rather use that than setup an entire roof rack system, your second option is to use a watersport trailer. I've linked to a list of them below, but I recommend the Malone XtraLight LowMax, part # MAL83FR, since it's a good entry-level trailer. I've linked to a video review of this one as well.

With this, you have the option of carrying you boat directly on the bars, or you can couple it with a carrier like the FoldAway-5 above. If you go the trailer route, I recommend using the carrier as it will reduce the amount of dings that travel will inflict upon your boat.
