Will the Yakima HandRoll Work to Transport a 57-Pound Kayak on My 2013 Mini Countryman?  


Will YO 04082 work on my mini cooper 2013 countryman crossbars to carry a 57 lb, 106inch kayak?


Expert Reply:

I have a kayak carrier solution for you. The Yakima HandRoll # Y04082 only comes with the roller portion of the setup. With this 1/2 system, are is no front supports that allow you to mount the kayak. In order to have the full setup, you need the # Y04083-04082 that include the saddles.

In order to determine if this system will clamp around your factory crossbars on your 2013 Mini Countryman, I recommend measuring your crossbars. If the height and width of your crossbars do not exceed 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall, you are good to go! For theft-deterrence, I strongly recommend the Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07204 to secure the setup to your crossbars.

As far as being able to accommodate a kayak measures 106 inches and weighs 57 pounds, the HandRoll will work great.

As with all roof rack transportation, I recommend consulting with your Mini owner's manual to make sure your roof can accommodate the weight you wish to transport.
