- MPG152

Trailer has been great towing our kayaks but have a issue backing it up. Probably because the tongue of trailer is so long, but I can un-hitch and move with ease.

- MPG152

Worked well...easy to use..recommend

- MPG152

The product arrived quickly and meets my high expectations. The 4/5 stars is because of one issue. I wondered why the instructions say the green straps go through the vehicle and not just around the side bars. My first time using it, I ran the straps through the vehicle, and later it rained buckets. When I got into the vehicle, I found the rain had channeled along the green straps and dripped enough water to soak sections of the four seats. Perhaps running the green straps through the side bars provides less security or makes more noise, but I'm going through them next time.

- MPG152

Easy to install and looks very nice on Mazda CX-5 Have used it twice to carrie 13.5 feet kayak and it did the job with no issues

- MPG152

Works adequately for carrying a kayak o ccasionally.

- MPG152

Great price, good quality, why shop anywhere else

  • How To Carry Kayaks On 2015 Ford Escape With Naked Roof and Moonroof
    Yes, the Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier # MPG152 can be used on the naked roof of the 2015 Ford Escape with moonroof as long as you do not put the foam block directly on the glass. If your moonroof is small enough to where you can place the blocks on either side of it and the kayak does not touch the glass you are good to go. It includes the straps and tie-downs to ensure that your kayak stays in place during transport. If your kayak is larger you may consider adjustable SportRack part...

  • How To Secure an Inflatable Kayak to a Bare Roof
    If you wanted to use the Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG152 then you would need to secure the foam pads to the roof in addition to running a strap though the pad to secure the kayak because the bow and stern tie-downs would most likely not provide enough force to keep the kayak secure. That said, we do offer the SportRack Foam Block Roof Kayak Carrier part # SR5527 which is designed for bare roofs. The other option you have would be to use the Malone HandiRack...

    Yes, the Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG152 referenced in your question will work well on your 2015 Subaru Outback that features the raised factory side rails. The rails won't interfere with the straps and can even be used as an attachment point instead of running them through the vehicle. I have attached an image from the installation manual that addresses this. This kayak system includes 2 of the foam blocks, 2 block straps, and 2 ropes to anchor the bow and stern...

  • Installing Foam Blocks For Kayak On Naked Roof Or Steel Square Crossbar Roof Rack
    The Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 18" Long # MPG152 can be secured to a naked roof through the door frames and over the kayak using the 15 foot straps. This will give you a length of strap running on the inside of your door frames near the headliner. Then you will secure the bow and stern with the other straps. When attaching to a roof rack, you can simply use the cutouts in the blocks to center the foam pads on square, round, or aero bars. The...

  • Recommended Carrier For Kayak Compatible With Popup Camper
    For the least structural impact on a popup, you can use the Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 18" Long # MPG152. If you are looking to add a roof rack, I recommend the SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack - Square Crossbars - Steel # SR1020. These feet permanently bolt to the roof of your camper. Then for a kayak carrier, I recommend the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier w/Tie-Downs - J-Style - Fixed - Side Loading # TH834. This will give you a sturdy carrier...

    I have a possible solution for you, but there are not any ladder racks available that will allow you to use a 5th wheel trailer. Also, I do not recommend modifying an over-the-cab ladder rack as this would compromise its structural integrity. Since you don't want to clamp on a roof rack, I recommend looking into the Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 18" # MPG152. This is an economical option for carrying a kayak; the foam block gets secured to your naked roof...

  • Roof Rack Kayak Carrier Combo For A 2013 Chevrolet Cruise
    The most cost effective way to get two kayaks on your roof of your 2013 Chevy Cruise would be to get two sets of these foam blocks # MPG152. These can go directly on your roof without crossbars. They come with straps so you don't have to worry about buying them separate. If you wanted to get a roof rack you can get the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2, Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA and the Custom DK Fit Kit # DK142.The pads can go on your naked roof or if your roof...

Then I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier - Fixed - Universal Mount # S510 to secure your kayak to the roof rack.

Although cost effective, the Rhino-Rack system does not lack quality and it is very easy to use. It also comes with locks which are extra for most other options. In order to mount two kayaks, you will need to use one saddle style carrier, the Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier part # RR570 for the heavier kayak and then...

  • Economical Roof Kayak Carrier for 2014 Chevy Suburban
    A post-style multi-kayak carrier like the Rhino-Rack Nautic # RRS520 that you referenced and the similar Thule Stacker # TH830 is a great way to transport up to 4 kayaks as long as the vehicle has a compatible roof rack. They are indeed a cost-effective option. But on a taller vehicle like your 2014 Suburban this type of carrier may not be the easiest to use in terms of loading and unloading since you typically need to get access to the center of the roof where the carrier typically mounts...

  • Kayak Carrier Compatibility with 17 Foot Sea Kayak System
    The Yakima EasyTop Universal Fit Roof Rack - Padded - 80 lbs # Y07418 has maximum load dimensions of 14' long x 3' wide according to the manufacturer, so they don't recommend it for a 17 foot sea kayak. The Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 18" Long - 1 Kayak # MPG152 or the Rightline Gear Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam-Block-Style - Roof Mount - 12" Long # RL100K10 do not have a length requirement, but I recommend using a roof rack and more stable support for...

  • Will Malone Kayak Foam Block Fit TracRac G2 Crossbars
    Malone doesn't list a maximum crossbar size for the Foam Kayak Block # MPG159 so I went out to our warehouse to actually test fit the block onto a TracRac crossbar, which is indeed larger than standard crossbars. I found that the block fits perfectly with even some room to spare, so there wasn't any issue getting it onto the bar. The foam block simply gets wrapped around the crossbar using the pre-cut gap on the underside. It's simply a matter of manipulating the bottom lip with your...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Load Assist Recommendation for 2011 Chevy Equinox with Raised Side Rails
    There is a solution for you, but the issue with the BoatLoader EVO # Y04085 the crossbar spread as well as its 80 lb weight capacity, which is less than your 87 lb fishing kayak. Instead, for your 2011 Chevy Equinox with raised side rails I recommend the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack, which will give your Equinox a very functional, durable rack that will allow you to use a load assist. This roof rack uses aero bars and consists of: - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 (Black) OR...

    In order to secure a kayak to the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack part # RRRS612B which is a fit for your 2016 Nissan Rogue you will need a bit more than just a tie down strap. I recommend the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier part # E98878 because it will be easy to load your kayak off an on and it comes with tie downs. That said, if you are looking for something more cost effective you would go with the Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG152.

  • Compatibility of the K2 Flip Rack and the Yakima BowDown on the 2015 Ford F-150 Supercrew
    The K2 Flip Rack, # K2TFR150, will fit your 2015 Ford F-150 Supercrew, regardless of the bed size. It is a confirmed fit with the 5-1/2, 6-1/2 or 8 foot bed. This fold-down ladder rack is a favorite of tradesmen and sportsmen alike. The easy clamp-on installation doesn't require any drilling or permanent mounting. And, since the crossbar adjusts to fit multiple truck bed widths, many owners keep it when they trade their truck in for a newer model. I went to the warehouse and took some...

    I have a few systems that you can use to carry two kayaks on your 2017 Ford F-350 over the bed with a BAK Revolver X4 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK79330 installed. The best system is hands down the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH43003XT-785 because the crossbars have channels so you can use channel mounted accessories like the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898 or the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier part # TH849000. The TracRac SR also has sliding...

    The Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar # RTL002 that you referenced is designed to be used with an existing roof rack crossbar system or bare roof carrier, which aren't included with the kit. If you want to go with a more permanent setup to use with the T-Load the best route is with a crossbar system. If your Silverado has the Crew Cab I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System that consists of # RRVA150S-2 for the two 59" Vortex Crossbars in Silver or...

  • Roof Rack Kayak Carrier for Hobie Oasis Tandem Kayak
    Some kayak carriers have a finite weight capacity, such as the Thule Hull-A-Port XT # TH848 which can handle up to 75-lbs. Since you have a fairly heavy kayak I suggest using a lightweight foam block carrier to keep your total roof weight load within the car's rating. As an example, the Malone # MPG152 features two 18-inch foam blocks and includes load straps and bow/stern tie-downs. If this is not wide enough for the Hobie you might consider using two of a similar smaller foam carrier,...

You can add foam blocks if desired like the Malone Deluxe Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 18" Long # MPG152 which come with tie-downs. The alternative option is to use a roof rack, but I'd need to know the type of cab...

  • Kayak Carrier for 2022 Hyundai Tucson Without Roof Racks
    The 2022 Hyundai Tucson is bigger than the previous models which is why it is taking a little bit longer for roof rack brands to confirm a fit for it. While the bars will probably stay the same for the roof rack systems, it's the custom-fit fit kits like # Y06017 that might change for the flush rails. I called Yakima and Thule to confirm that there are no fits yet for your vehicle and they said they are both waiting for testing for compatibility. In the meantime, one option is to use...

  • Roof Rack and Carriers for 3 Kayaks on 2011 Honda Pilot
    Kayak carriers are generally sold separately from roof racks and we can help you with a roof rack to enable use of the Thule Stacker # TH830 multi-kayak carrier. Your 2011 Pilot could come with either raised front-to-back roof rails or a totally bare roof. If you have the factory-installed raised rails I recommend the Thule Crossroads Wingbar rack, parts # TH711520 and # TH450R, because their 60-inch aero bars will give you plenty of space for the 3 kayaks and also a wide bar spacing...

  • What is the Length of the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist?
    The adjustable height range of the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar for 2" Hitches - 49" Long # RTL002 is 42-64 inches high. In order to make sure that the Rhino-Rack T-Load will clear your camper shell and reach your crossbars, I recommend measuring the pinhole of your hitch receiver to the top of your shell. The Rhino-Rack T-Load hitch is not used for a lift assist. However, if you are looking for a higher load assist for your Kaku Wahoo, I recommend the...

    Yes, the Malone Foam Blocks for Kayaks - 16" Long # MAL85VR will fit onto the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer crossbars without an issue. It looks like the Venus 11 kayak is about 28.5 inches wide, however, the mounting spot where the kayak will rest on the foam block is not going to be 28.5 inches. The 16" blocks will likely be fine, but I would go with the Malone Deluxe Kayak Kit with Tie-Downs - Foam-Block-Style 18" # MPG152 to get a few more inches of mounting space for the kayak. This...

Typically we recommend using a kayak carrier on the crossbars to carry your boats since this is the safest and provides the easiest loading and unloading option for your kayaks; a good low cost option to protect the hulls of the boats...
