Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2008 Chevy Avalanche  


kayak specs are Dimensions: 10foot x 28.5. Weight: 47 lb. Deck height: 16.75. Need recommendations too carry 2 of these old town vapor recreational kayaks. On a 2008 chevy avalanche. I have a naked roof would need everything. The least wind noise easiest to use best quality would be preferred. And possible future adding another kayak to the system.

I'd recommend a Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero roof rack, which would consist of the following parts:

• Rhino-Rack 54 inch Vortex Aero Crossbars in black as part # RRVA137B-2 or silver as part # RRVA137S-2
• Rhino-Rack roof rack feet, part # RRRLKVA
• Vehicle Specific fit kit, part # DK227

For a kayak carrier, I'd recommend the Rhino-Rack kayak carrier, part # S512. The # RRS512X expansion kit would allow you to carry a second kayak. For the third kayak, you'll need an additional # S512. The carrier and expansion kit included tie down straps to attach the kayaks to the carrier as well as bow/stern tie-downs.

I've linked to some product videos that you might find helpful.
