We needed a better way to haul around 3 kayaks and after looking at a number of options, we settled on the Thule Stacker setup. Installation is simple and the stackers provide a sturdy option for hauling multiple kayaks. One of the best features is that they fold down when you don't need to use them. My shopping experience with etrailer was smooth and shipping was prompt.


Comments
Its been a year and were still enjoying the Stacker setup. We have been hauling around our kayaks to local lakes every other weekend or so, and have had no issues. I have been double checking the hardware and occasionally do have to tighten a mounting knob or two. Im happy that we made this purchase and hope to continue using them for years to come.

My wife uses these to carry two small kayaks in the roof of her Subaru. They work great and we very happy with the purchase. She also likes finding her car easier in the parking lots, even with the carriers folded down.

No issues after a year would definitely purchase again.

This is a well built system. This was laced onto a 2011 Toyota Highlander with factory rails. It is difficult to tell when the hardware is “tight enough” since the attachment clamps bend and conform to the shape of the rails. Since the Thule Stacker is deigned to hold up to four kayaks, there is no cradle to hold kayaks in place(expect some slipping when driving). To mitigate the slipping as well as piece of mind when tightening down the clamps, I purchased some neoprene rubber sheets to place under the kayaks as well as under the clamps to improve grip on the rails.

This is an easy to use rooftop system. I don’t regret my purchase and would recommend it to others looking for a simple to use system.

Looked everywhere to find a kayak rack that would fit on an existing 08 Xterra with a manufacturer storage rack and crossbar support. etrailer site had what I needed. They had a "blog" describing that this would work, with extension bolts (which they also supply). Received the system within 4 days, installed it in about 15 - 20 minutes on the manufacturer rack. Holds up great, first trip we traveled about 250 miles round trip with two kayaks on top (about 80 lbs total), in 20 - 30 mph winds. No problems at all. I am extremely happy with this system. I do use a few rubber cabinet liners cut and placed on the crossbars to help the kayaks from sliding (this is also very helpful). I have read a few reports of the boats coming lose, but have not had any issues. I have enclosed a few pictures to show how they install as well as how boats were secured.

These were easy to install and use. I do recommend this carrier for multiple kayaks transport.


Comments
Do the kayaks sit directly on the Thule cross bars? Do you for see a problem rubbing, since there doesnt appear to be any type of padding between the kayak and the rails?
-- comment by: Sue C - 05/29/2015


Comments
The kayaks sit on the Rhino Rack bars and against the Thule carrier stems and rubbing is not an issue because they should have direct contact anyway. The straps keep them tight to the carrier stems and rack barsno padding needed. This was the best system for us!

Great product. Explanation of what we needed before we bought the product was excellent! Have loaded 4 kayaks easily for a couple trips. Very happy we purchased this instead of a trailer. Easy to take on and off and light to use on both vehicles allowing us to carry on kayak trip so we do not leave kayaks while retrieving other vehicle.

Love this stacker rack! Wanted to get something that can carry 1-6 boats, and it works perfectly! Folds down nicely on the roof to fit in the garage when not in use. Carries up to 4 boats on my Chrysler Town & Country; up to 6 on the bars of my buddy's pop-up camper roof (extra straps are required for more than 2 boats). Durable, as are pretty much all Thule products. Would highly recommend!

The Stacker worked perfectly! We needed to haul 2 kayaks, and when we began to suspect that my 2014 CR-V cross rails weren't wide enough for the Thule J-Style carriers I kept looking. Well, The Stacker was the perfect solution. Mounted in the center of the rails, to accommodate two Kayaks. Watching the video provided on etrailer page was very helpful, as we have never tried to use anything like this before. These brackets are so very sturdy, and with kayaks attached, were so stable. The straps provided were sturdy too, and easy to use. Being able to use these two brackets, instead of having to buy two sets of J-style hooks was a huge money saver. Thanks to etrailer.com I was able to figure all of this out, using descriptions, reviews, videos and Q&A's available as I was trying to work out a solution. Thank you etrailer.

They Work Well, but Depending upon your position of the roof racks you may get wind whistle if you don't have the kayaks up there, otherwise with the kayaks it was great easy to use and mount on my Rhino Rack, wish they had a front wind cover that would mount and prevent wind Whistle. They definitely worked well with 2 kayaks up there, I will be trying with 3 in July.

The picture shows the stacker in the down position. Very easy to install and raise to tie the kayaks to the two upright Stackers. After you remove the kayaks, simple to loosen a knob and lay the stackers flat so that you don't hear any wind noise when you are driving. Or you can just remove them until the next time you go kayaking. This allows us to carry two of our plastic river kayaks. If we buy another set of the Stackers, we can carry a total of 4 river kayaks.

Easy install, sturdy and serves the purpose! Easily transporting 2 50lb kayaks! Folds down when parked, and stows easily in the trunk when not needed!

Will this work on a 2012 Subaru Impreza Sport 5 door for two 10 foot wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 sit on top kayaks? The kayaks weigh about 52 lbs a piece and I have the factory cross bars that I purchased at my local Subaru dealer. Thanks
-- comment by: Damon - 08/26/2013

The racks should have no problem attaching to the bars, but, there are some things we should check to ensure this rack will work. 1) Check the crossbar spread, from center of front bar to center of rear bar, on the Subaru. It needs to be 24 inches, minimum. 2) Check the weight capacity of the roof/roof rack. If it is not indicated on the bars, then Subaru will have it listed in the ownersmanual. You have 104 lbs of kayak and about 8 pounds of kayak carrier with this one. Make sure your vehicle will accommodate that weight.

  • Extra Strap Recommendation for Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier for Carrying 3 Kayaks
    You'll want the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT for additional straps with the Thule Stacker part # TH830. You'll want two sets of these since you have three kayaks and the Stacker comes with straps for one kayak. I attached a review video for this strap kit for you to check out as well.

    I do have a solution for you to use a track mounted stacking style of kayak carrier to your TracRac SR T-Slots but unfortunately the Watersports Adapter # THXADAPT11 is not compatible with the Thule Stacker # TH830 and there is no way to adapt the Stacker for a T-Slot application. Instead you can use the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 which has the same basic design and comes with hardware to mount it to crossbars with a T-Slot.

  • Do Bow/Stern Tie-Downs Need To Be Attached to Hood and Rear of Vehicle To Secure Kayaks
    The Thule Stacker # TH830 is a great solution to secure a few 10 foot kayaks on their side. The carrier does include a set of tie-downs but you will need to add extra straps # TH855XT and # 753-2030-02 for all 3 of the kayaks. When actually securing the kayaks onto the roof of your CR-V I absolutely recommend attaching the ropes to the front and back ends of the vehicle. This prevents wind during travel from catching underneath the kayak and trying to lift it off the roof. Simply looping...

    Using the Thule Stacker # TH830 multi-kayak carrier with 4 kayaks will require additional bow/stern ropes and additional straps since the carrier comes equipped with enough for one boat. Each of the 4 kayaks must have its own set of bow/stern tie-down ropes # TH855XT or something similar as well as its own straps to secure it to the Stacker, such as # 753-2030-02, or again, a similar item like # E98876-4.

    You could possibly fit four of the # S65148 on your roof but it will be a pain to load majority of your kayaks up there. There is a better solution I found that will be more user friendly. You are going to need a large roof rack bar to accommodate your 4 kayaks. I suggest the Yakima 60" HD Bars # Y01157 and If you have factory side rails you will need the Yakima SkyLine Towers # Y00148 along with the Side Rail Adapter # Y03541 and Landing Pad # Y00221.

    I spoke with my contact at Thule and she told me that you can only use the Thule Stacker # TH830 with polyethylene kayaks that are less than 10 feet in length. Anything else can potentially damage the kayak since it basically will be resting right on the crossbars of the roof rack. For longer kayaks you would want the part # Y04073 instead.

    Your skepticisim is understandable but this question has come up before and Thule has said that the reason the Thule The Stacker # TH830 can only handle kayaks which are 10 feet or less is because longer kayaks are vulnerable to damage with this carrier because it depends too greatly on the roof rack to remain stable.
