  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Ford Escape with a Naked Roof
  • There are several roof racks available for your 2011 Ford Escape with a naked roof, but the SportRack Roof Rack part # SR1002 that you referenced is not one of them. I attached a link to a page that has all of the racks that would work on your vehicle.

As you stated, the Yakima RailGrab roof rack has a weight capacity of 165 lbs, however, the weight capacity will be limited to the 100 lb weight capacity of the factory side rails on the Escape. I would not recommend carrying both kayaks together with your Ford Escape because it could potentially damage the side ra

  • Is a Fairing Required for a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack on a 2008 Ford Escape

Aero bars like those on Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack # DA126B are aerodynamic enough to cut down on the noise and drag. Rhino-Rack does not offer a fairing except on their cargo basket, # RMCB.

The optimal way to secure this cargo bag to your roof would be to use both the crossbars and the side rails with the included cargo loops.
