Will the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack # Y02-480B Work to Haul a 12-Ft. Kayak on a 2019 Toyota Tundra?


Looking at the Y02-480B for my camper shell on 2019 toyota tundra crew max. Would this be safe to use to haul a 12ft kayak , not worried about weight just wind catching the kayak. Also are the tracks able to be cut to size? 63 inches may be too long for my shell? Thanks

Yes, the Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack for Camper Shells - Track Mount - Black - Standard - 54" Long
# Y02-480B will safely transport a 12-ft. kayak as long as you have either a carrier or some other source of fastening method to transport the kayak while on your 2019 Toyota Tundra Crew Max. I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier - Fixed - Universal Mount # S510. The J-Style kayak carrier comes with 2 specially designed tie-down straps that attach your kayak to the crossbars as well as 2 bow/stern tie downs to fasten the kayak to your vehicle.

As far as cutting the Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack # Y02-480B, you can cut the 63-inch tracks to fit the specifications on your camper shell. If you want to purchase shorter tracks (instead of cutting the 63-inch ones), you can purchase the Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks - Channel Mount - 47-1/4" Long - Qty 2 # RTC12JW along with the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Factory Tracks - 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars - Black - 54" Long # Y02-480B-NT.
