What Canoe Carrier do You Recommend for My 2015 Toyota Tacoma?  


what accessories are available to transport 1-man canoes?


Expert Reply:

From the sound of your question, it looks like you are looking for a canoe carrier for your 2015 Toyota Tacoma. For a great option for transporting canoes, I recommend the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 450 lbs # TH500XT-XK3 (for Tacomas with the Deck Rail system) or the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 500 lbs - 68" # Y01151-58 (if your truck does not have a Deck Rail system). Both of these ladder racks will give you enough weight capacity and crossbar length you need for hauling your canoe.

With these two ladder racks, you will be able to mount a canoe carrier. For the carrier, I recommend the Thule Portage # TH819 along with the Thule Xadapt12 Watersports Adapter # THXADAPT12. The Portage comes with padded cam buckle straps to secure your canoe to the crossbars of the Xsporter and the OverHaul HD. In addition, the Portage comes with ratcheting bow/stern tie-down straps that anchor your canoe to your vehicle. With the Xadapt12, you can securely mount the Portage to the top channels in both ladder rack options.
