Recommended Roof Cargo Basket For Hauling Kayaks On A 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon


Hi, I’m interested in getting a cargo rack to put on top of my 2018 Outback. I already have a set of kayak racks that I would like to be able to mount onto the cargo rack if possible. If it is possible what racks would you recommend that would be able to hold the weight of two kayaks? Thanks,

If you don't already have crossbars on your 2018 Subaru Outback then I recommend the following components:

Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 47" Long # TH711220
Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars - Fixed Point # TH460R
Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet - 4063 # THKIT4063

If you have a Touring model then you'll need part numbers: # TH711220, # TH710601, and # TH186047 instead.

Once you have the crossbars you can then mount the Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket # Y07138 to them and attach your kayak carriers to the two accessory bars included with this basket. This cargo basket has a total weight capacity of 165lbs so it should be more than enough for your two kayaks.
