Option to Carry a Kayak and SUP on a Roof Rack at the Same Time


Im looking for a way to carry both a tandem kayak and a stand-up paddleboard SUP at the same time on the factory roof rack/crossbars of a 2007 Toyota Sienna. Would the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier TH834 positioned on the edge of one side of crossbars, together with a set of 30-inch Thule SUP and Surfboard Pads TH846000 situated on the remaining length of the crossbars for carrying the SUP flat work? Or is there a single roof rack system, either from Thule or another manufacturer, that will carry both a kayak and a SUP at the same time? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The combination of the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier w/Tie-Downs # TH834 and the Thule SUP and Surfboard Pads # TH846000 (30") that you mentioned is likely the best scenario for carrying your kayak and stand up paddle board (SUP). There is not a single rack that can handle both at the same time. Most racks require that the rack be in a different configuration for the SUP rather than the kayak.

Depending on how wide your cross bars are, we also have the Yakima Crossbar Pads for Aero Crossbars # Y07412 which are 20" wide instead of the 30" the Thule pads are.
