Best Kayak Carrier for Carrying 2 Kayaks on a Roof Rack


Can i install 2 Yakima Showdown kayak racks on one vehicle or can it only handle just one kayak?


Expert Reply:

If you are asking if the Yakima Showdown Kayak Carrier, part # Y04081, can carry two kayaks, then I'm afraid the answer is no, it cannot.

If you are asking if you can install two of these carrier on a roof rack, the answer is maybe. Most roof racks will be able to handle the weight of two of these and two kayaks. Unfortunately, since these are 42" long, most roof racks do not have the space to carry two.

Either way, there is a better option for you to carry two kayaks on your roof. It's the Thule Compass Kayak, part # TH890000. This carrier allows you to carry both kayaks side-by-side in its post-style configuration. I've linked to a video review of this carrier for your consideration.
