Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for 2011 Ford F-350 Crew Cab to Carry Kayaks


On a 2011 F350 Superduty can I put 2- 10 kayaks on the Rhino Rack without using the front receiver Tbar. I will be hauling a 5th wheel trailer. Kayaks are 50 lbs each.

It sounds like you are asking if you can just use a Rhino-Rack roof rack without a front-mounted hitch & T-bar extender to carry a pair of kayaks on your 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab to carry kayaks, and the answer to that is yes you can. What you will need is both the rack as well as kayak carriers, and let's start with the Rhino-Rack that fits your truck.

- Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Silver # RRVA150S-2 or Black # RRVA150B-2
- Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA
- Custom DK Fit Kit # DK190

The Rhino-Rack is a smart choice because it offers a better value than other racks; it is more economical than similar brands while not sacrificing anything in terms of quality. Then to carry your two kayaks I recommend the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # RRS520.

The Nautic is another really good value as its post-style means you only need one carrier to secure both kayaks instead of having to purchase a kayak carrier for both boats. It even comes with tie-downs to secure your two kayaks and can mount directly to the channels of your Rhino-Rack or clamp around the bars; it also has a 165 lb capacity which is more than enough for your two 50 lb kayaks.

I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well of both the roof rack and kayak carrier.
