Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendations for a 2013 Acura TL  


What roof rack and accessories should I get for a 2013 Acura TL bare roof in order to carry a 10’ kayak? Thanks


Expert Reply:

For your 2013 Acura TL, I recommend the Yakima CoreBar Roof Rack System. The bars themselves are part # Y00421. They are heavy-duty (made from steel) and quiet (aero-style). They'll be able to handle the weight of kayak with no problem. I've linked to a video review of these bars for you to look at.

The other parts needed for this system are:

BaseLine Towers - part # Y28TR
Two BaseClip Fit Kits - part # Y06162 and part # Y06181

For the kayak carrier, I recommend the Malone FoldAway-5, part # MAL38FR. This carrier will allow you to carry the kayak in three different configurations (j-style, vertical, and flat) depending on how you'd like to carry it. I've linked to a video review of this carrier as well.
