Kayak Rack/Carrier

Postby webs1981 » Thu Mar 30, 2017 3:34 pm

Guys,

I was hoping to get some suggestions on any good kayak rack/carriers out there for 2 kayaks.

Is there a certain one that is better than other? A better manufacturer? Specific model that would work great? I have a 2012 Ford Explorer.

This is the first time I'll be using a rack/carrier to transport two kayaks from different bodies of water.

If you could give me any suggestions on good racks/carriers that would be great!

Thanks in advance!

It really depends on the type of yaks and if you will haul upside down or upright. choose accordingly .

If you want to haul 2 boats on the roof then you need 2 of these:

This is probably the best way to go. Just be aware that your roof load limit is probably 150-165 pounds,
which should be plenty. Yakima also has a similar system, Stick with Thule or Yakima, dont roll the dice
on off brand stuff. Good luck.

Nailed it. I had a pair of commanders on my roof at one time, and they're decently wide kayaks. Worked great, and still does with my two kayaks!
