Roof Rack For 2017 Ford Escape With Bare Roof to Carry 2 Thule Hullavators  


We need to mount two Hullavators on one bar to hold two Kayaks. How long of a bar would be needed? The Kayaks are 25inch wide at the widest point. They would be mounted on a 2017 Ford Escape with a bare roof or a 2014 Chey Silverado with a ARE topper. We would also need the rack to hold them with keyed lock if possible.

We can absolutely get your 2017 Ford Escape with a bare roof set up to carry a pair of Thule Hullavators. What you will need is a roof rack system from Yakima, as this is the only brand that can accommodate the crossbar length you need to carry a pair of Hullavators.

I will list out everything that is needed for the roof rack that fits your '17 Escape, and I'll also add the part numbers for you for the locks for both the Yakima rack as well as two Hullavators.

- Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426

- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR

- BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06190

- BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06191

- Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07204

- Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist # TH898

- Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400

This is everything you need for your Escape so you can easily carry your kayaks.
