How To Determine What The Minimum Crossbars Needed To Carry 4 Kayaks On A 2019 GMC Acadia Are


Hello, I am looking at getting the rhino rack nautic stack kayak carrier. What would the minimum length of the crossbars need to be for it to fit 4 kayaks on it?


Expert Reply:

To determine the minimum crossbar length needed will really depend on how tall the Kayaks you have are.

For instance, if your kayaks were 14" tall, you'd need a minimum of 42" across your roof in which something like the:

-Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA118B-2 with the legs # RRSX100, would work great.

This crossbar setup is confirmed to fit your 2019 GMC Acadia with factory roof rails, measures 46" wide, and has a maximum weight capacity of 165-lbs.

If you let me know what kayaks you are planning on using, I'd be more than happy to help find you the crossbars you need.


You can check out the link I've attached that has all of our confirmed fit crossbars for your 2019 GMC Acadia.

You're also going to want to make sure that your kayaks aren't going to overload the maximum carrying capacity of the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack # RRS520 (165-lbs), as well as your crossbars/vehicle's roof.
