We are retired couple, small in statue and difficult to put our fishing Kayak on top of our Honda CRV, we purchased the e-trailer brand which worked, however we needed our son who is 6'-6" and he threw is over with no problem, my wife and I are not that fortunate. I am 5'-4"/72 year old tall and same is my wife. I am depending on Malone Telos XL load assist module, next purchase. All of the studies done looks like this will work. We have been a royal customer for the past 10 years, with many purchase from e-trailer and all of our purchases for our motor home, boat, and side x side ATV from e-trailer. Very customer oriented and excellent service. Thanks etrailer 935820

Ask the Experts about this Malone Watersport Carriers

  • Recommendation for Crossbars Compatible with Malone J-Load Kayak Carrier on 2020 Volvo XC40
    Since you had trouble with the Thule Aero style bars previously I recommend sticking with the square bar set up you have been using. We have two options of square bars that will fit the 2020 Volvo XC40 and are compatible with the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrier # MPG118MD. The first is the Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars 47" Long # TH712200, with the Evo Flush Rail Feet # TH710601, and the Fit Kit for your Volvo XC40 # TH186010. This is going to be the most economic option we have available...

  • Putting Two 10 Foot Kayaks on a 2013 Honda Odyssey
    For your 2013 Honda Odyssey, I recommend two of the Malone J-Loader, part # MPG118MD. This J-Style Rack will help you load the kayak up onto the vehicle with the integrated ramps, helping to support some of the weight. The J-loader also includes a complete boat, bow and stern tie down kit. You can add some quick upgrades to the kit with the Malone SpeedLash, part # MPG309 and Quick-Loop, part # MPG308. The Speed Lash kit uses a pulley system to make the bow/stern tie down process...

  • Can Malone Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers Handle Weight of two 64 lb Kayaks
    Each set of the Malone J-Holder kayak carriers part # MPG118MD that you referenced weigh 14 lbs so with two of them plus two 64 lb kayaks you'd be looking at a total weight of 156 lbs which is under the weight capacity of your roof rack so you'd be set.

  • Comparing Malone J-Style Kayak Carriers
    You're correct the J-Pro2, part # MPG117MD, is a newer model of the J-Pro, part # MPG116MD. The difference between the two is the J-Pro2 has more padding to protect the kayaks. Other than that and the color they're basically the same. The J-Loader, part # MPG118MD, goes a little further to add the ramps which help with loading. You slide the kayak up and over the ramps helping to guide it in place instead of having to lift it over the ends of the carrier like with the J-Pro and J-Pro2....

  • Assisted Kayak Carrier Recommendation Over Malone Telos
    The Telos part # MPG351XL that you referenced can only be used with the Malone Downloader carrier part # MPG114MD or the # MPG118MD. Now that said if you are going to spend that type of money I'd much rather recommend you the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 as it works much better and is easier to use as well. Check out the review video I attached for this for you to check out as well.

  • Cost Effective Way to Carry a Kayak on a 2009 Subaru Forester
    In order to carry a kayak on the roof of your 2009 Subaru Forester you are going to need a roof rack and kayak carrier. The most cost effective roof rack we have for you is going to be dependent on whether or not you have a bare roof or raised side rails. If you have a bare roof then I recommend the Rhino-Rack # RRVA126S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK186 which uses custom clip mounting and comes with aero crossbars. If you have raised side rails then I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part...

  • Recommended Length of Malone Roof Rack for 2014 Ford Escape to Carry Kayaks
    That's a great question and you've clearly put a lot of thought into it. And for your 2014 Ford Escape with raised rails I highly recommend the 58 inch Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216. The reason I recommend the longer bars is because they make kayaks much easier to load, particularly two kayaks, because they will be closer to the edge of your vehicle, so you don't have to try and contour your body to lift the kayaks up while bending to maneuver them on the roof. Longer crossbars...

  • Will the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carriers Work With Malone XtraLight LowMax Trailer

  • What Kayak Carriers Can be Used with Malone Kayak Carrier Load Assist
    The Malone load assist part # MPG351XL that you referenced can only be used with Malone kayak carriers. Either with the DownLoader part # MPG114MD or the J-Loader part # MPG118MD. They can't be used with the Thule rack you have now so if you wanted to use it you'd need to replace the carriers as well.

  • What Load Assist Can be Used with Thule J-Style Kayak Carrier
    For use with your Thule J-style kayak carriers we have the Rhino Rack load assist part # RR-RUSL that will work great and make loading the kayaks easier, but the Malone Telos XL Load Assist part # MPG351XL that you referenced only can be used on the Malone carriers # MPG114MD and # MPG118MD. The Rhino Rack # RR-RUSL allows you to lean the kayak on it and then lift bottom up and in doing so brings the kayak to the same height of the crossbars which will make sliding the boat onto the...

  • How to Carry Two Kayaks on a 2015 Nissan Rogue
    Absolutely! In order to carry two kayaks on the roof of your 2015 Nissan Rogue you will need a set of crossbars and set of kayak carriers. For the crossbars, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG215. These crossbars have an aero shape which will work to reduce wind drag and noise. They also have integrated t-slots and come with locks. Then for the kayak carriers, I recommend using two sets of the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrier part # MPG118MD. These carriers come...

  • Kayak Load Assist Options for a Vehicle with Factory Roof Rack
    It sounds like you need help loading a kayak(s) on your 2008 Lexus RX 400h with a factory roof rack. If that is the case then I do have an option for you but none of the side load assist arms we carry that attach to the crossbars which includes the Rhino-Rack Universal Load Assist part # RR-RUSL will work with factory crossbars as it requires an overhang. The overhang means the crossbars extend out past the mounting feet which is rarely the case for a factory roof rack. Instead, the...

  • Weight Capacity for a Kayak Carrying Roof Rack System on a 2015 Nissan Rogue
    Roof rack systems are always limited by the weakest point, be it the rack or the vehicle roof. In your case, 150 pounds is about the same as most roof systems, so you'll have a lot of options with your rack. I tend to recommend aero bars for these applications because they support the weight more evenly than other bar types because of their width. For your vehicle I recommend the Rhino Rack Vortex kit, consisting of: Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, 46 inches, part # RRVA118B-2 Rhino...

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a 2018 Toyota Highlander With Factory Roof Rack
    In order to mount two kayaks on the top of a 2018 Toyota Highlander with factory roof rack you will need to position the kayaks on their side using j-style kayak carriers, the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrie part # MPG118MD for fixed or the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD for folding are what I recommend. This will be the case for pretty much all factory roof racks as very few if any will be long enough to carry two kayaks side by side.

  • Kayak Rack Compatibility with Roof Rack Square Crossbars
    The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack - Square Crossbars # MPG202 will allow a variety of kayak roof rack options. I've linked the page to all your options, but there are 3 that have been tested with this roof rack by the manufacturer and designed for compatibility. They are the MaloneJ-Loader Kayak Carrier # MPG118MD, the Malone J-Pro2 # MPG117MD, and the J-Pro # MPG116MD. There are other styles that are also compatible but the J-style carrier is by far the most popular.

    If you need help loading a kayak on your 2019 Toyota RAV4 with a factory roof rack then I do have an option for you but none of the side load assist arms we carry that attach to the crossbars which includes the Rhino-Rack Universal Load Assist part # RR-RUSL will work with factory crossbars as it requires an overhang.

  • How to Carry a Kayak and SUP on a 2003 Subaru Legacy
    The main difference between the Swagman Contour Rooftop Kayak Carrier System part # S65148 and the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrier System part # MPG118MD is that the Malone option will allow for the use of the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module part # MPG351XL which aids in loading. They are essentially the same carrier aside from this aspect. Therefore, if you need help with loading I would go with the Malone system but if not the Swagman system will work fine for you. They will both...
