How To Transport 2 Kayaks And 1 SUP On Factory Crossbars Of 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport


I have a 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport with the roof rails and crossbars. Is it possible to carry 2 11.5foot single kayaks and 1 SUP at one time and if so what equipment do I need?


Expert Reply:

I have a solution for you, however, there is currently no carrier available that is able to safely carry 2 kayaks and 1 SUP. You will need to get 2 individual carriers.

In order to mount 2 kayaks and 1 SUP on your 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport with factory crossbars, you will first need to check the weight limit of your roof by contacting the manufacturer or looking in the owner's manual. Also, measure your crossbars along with your kayaks and sup to determine if they will safely fit on your roof rack.

For the SUP carrier, I highly recommend the Thule DockGrip SUP Carrier # TH895. This has a weight limit of 85lbs.

For the 2 kayaks, I would go with the Yakima BigStack Boat Carrier # Y04041.

The kayak carrier weighs 7.8lbs, and the SUP carrier weighs 7.6lbs, so take this into consideration when determining if your load will exceed the weight limit of your roof.

You also may want to look into tie down ropes / ratchet straps # Y04031 and hood anchors # Y07416 to safely secure your load.

I have attached demonstration videos of the carriers.
