How To Safely Carry 2 Large Kayaks On The Roof Of A 2019 Toyota Tundra  


Can you fit 2 10-12 ft kayaks side by side on the 59 or 60 rails on roof racks for Tundra?


Expert Reply:

You can certainly transport two 10-12' kayaks on a 60" crossbar. I recommend the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Aluminum 60" Long # TH711500. You will also need Feet # TH710501 and Fit Kit # TH145182 to install the crossbars onto your 2019 Toyota Tundra. The weight capacity is 165lbs; remember to never exceed the weight capacity of your vehicle's roof.

In order to safely fit 2 kayaks, I would look into Rhino-Rack 2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading # S512-S512X. This allows 2 kayaks to be mounted on their side, saving room on the crossbars for other roof-mounted accessories. There are padded cradle arms along with straps that secure the kayaks to the roof. The kayak carrier simply clamps onto the roof rack and can be easily removed when needed. Another neat feature is the folding mechanism which allows the kayak carrier to maintain a low profile for garage parking.

I attached a demonstration video for the crossbar setup.
