Video Transcript for Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier and Lift Assist Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at Yakima ShowDown Kayak or Stand Up Paddle Board Carrier with Lift Assist, part number Y04081. The Yakima ShowDown is great for holding up to kayak or two stand up paddle boards and transporting them safely on your roof. It comes with bow and stern tie-downs for your kayak, as well as two straps to hold your kayak and your stand up paddle boards in place on the rack itself.The biggest feature about this kayak carrier is going to be its lift assist ability. It's very easy to use. You simply remove the pins on either side. This is going to make loading and unloading much easier.

And don't forget to fold in your mirror just to make sure it doesn't get damaged once you lower this down. It's very easy. You just grab the two handles on either side, pull out, and it's ready to unhook and come off, or if you're ready to put it back up, it makes loading it up a snap as well.It has felt-covered pads here, and that's going to protect the finish on your boat as well as your stand up paddle boards, and prevent scratching. The bow and stern tie-downs also come with this plastic sheath to protect your vehicle once it's installed, so it doesn't rub up against the finish. Now, while we have this on aero bars right now, this will work with square, round, elliptical, and most factory-style roof racks as well.

It comes with a knock-out here, both at the rear and at front, which you can replace with the Yakima Same Key System Core, so both your roof rack and your roof accessories can be keyed alike.When comparing this to other kayak carriers, one that comes up is going to be the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier with Lift Assist in Tie-Downs, part number TH898. Now, while both these come with the tie-downs necessary to strap your kayak to the roof of your vehicle, there are a few differences. For example, the Thule Hullavator does come with gas struts, which act as a lift assist to push this back up against your vehicle. The Thule Hullavator is a little bit heavier when putting it onto your roof rack, while the Yakima ShowDown is much lighter.The ShowDown is designed to work with the stand up paddle boards in addition to kayaks, while the Hullavator is just designed for kayaks. The Yakima ShowDown is also going to save you some money over the Thule Hullavator.

Now that we've gone over the features of the ShowDown, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. We have one arm already installed on our roof rack system. Here's the second arm. And here's everything that's going to be coming in the kit with this ShowDown.We have two pads here, and that's going to be if you're going to be using it for the stand up paddle board configuration. Then we have two tie-down straps with rubber protectors, to protect the hull and your stand up paddle board.

And then we have four adapters if you're using the round bars. And then we have the kit for our bow and stern tie-downs. Important note I'd like to point out here is that you at least want a space of about three and half inches from the edge of our bar to the edge of our tower.Also, our arms are marked left and right. You can see it on the inside here. Just be sure to put that on the proper side. We make sure that our clamps are in the open position and place it on our bar, like so. We'll to keep it even with our front bar. And then we can start tightening it down. Once you have it tightened down, just give it a quick shake test to make sure it's going to stay in place. Now we can remove the pins on either side and bring our arms out. Pull out and down. And then fold out, holders for our kayak.Now, with it in this open position, you do want to make sure that it's at least four inches away from the vehicle. It looks like we've surpassed that. Before we install a kayak, we are going to move our mirror the inside here, because you don't want the kayak making contact with that as we load it up. Next we're going to start loading up our straps before we put our kayak into place. We'll thread it through this top portion here like so, making sure the portion with the buckle is facing out.Now we can lift our kayak up into place. You can already tell how much easier it is setting into place this way as opposed to having to push it up onto a J-hook or some other configuration. When it's setting into this point, you want to make sure that it's going to be setting evenly on both sides and not more towards one side or the other. Now, to adjust our pads here, we have these knobs at the top. You simply turn it to the left to loosen it up, and push or pull them out as needed. Then tighten them down.It looks like we're at a pretty good spot there. Next we'll take our straps and bring them around the front of our kayak, like so. We'll do this on the other side as well. Then we can thread the bottom portion of our strap underneath the kayak here, put it through our buckle, pull it tight, and repeat this for the other strap. We'll tie off the excess and then we can lift this back up into position. Grabbing those handles that we used to lower it down, pushing it up and pushing it back into place. And as you can see, loading this back up is a snap.Once this is back up and in place, we'll reinstall our pinning clips. And now we can focus on our bow and stern tie-downs. We'll start here in the back. We'll come to our kayak handle here, and install the first portion, which is going to be the end with the buckle. And we'll feed our buckle through that loop and pull it tight. Take one end and we'll feed it through our buckle just to get it started. Then with our other end, which has this plastic sheath on it, we'll install our hook, like so. Now our anchor point at the rear is going to be our trailer hitch. Just hook that up like so and pull it tight. Then we'll tie off our excess.Now a quick point with our front tie-down, we did do something a little bit differently. It still hooks up the same at the point here with our buckle, but if we go down to the actual attachment point, there was no front mounting point we could use with our hook, so we did use the Yakima Anchor Strap, which is sold separately as part number Y04046. Very easy to install and it did come in handy in this spot. And there you have it for Yakima ShowDown Kayak or Stand Up Paddle Board Carrier, part number Y04081.

Building a van conversion on our 2015 Ford Transit wagon. My wife required one thing above all else, and that was a means to transport her kayak on our trips. Since the inside of the van will be set up as a mini-RV, the only place for a Kayak is on the roof... along with the Solar panel array, and the MaxxFan (also purchased from eTrailer). Somehow, I made it work after being told by some folks there wasn't enough room. You can see from the pic, it all does fit, and nicely I might add. What made it possible is the use of the Yakima Showdown kayak mounting system. The van is 8'2" tall. The only way to make this happen is with the Showdown, (or Hullavator) mounts. I like the idea of the Hullavator with the gas filled struts, but I don't like the price, or Thule engineering in general. I believe Yakima is far superior in all respects. Admittedly, it's a bit more challenging to raise and lower the Yakima Showdown. Since my wife and I are tall people, the use of a small step stool makes it an easy task. The kayak is at chest height and very easy to load and secure with the straps. The only part that's a bit difficult is raising it up level with the slide. Once it locks into the slide, the rollers make it a snap to slide it home. You then secure it with the attached pins that slip through the mechanism locking it into place. Done! Lowering it is actually easier. The thing to remember is to pull it all the way out until you feel is stop, only then will it lower with ease. This is an easy trade off. I don't think the Hullavator is worth the money. I've used a friends and it's not really that much easier to raise and lower. Yes, the struts offset most of the weight, but it looks clunky with the lower bar always stuck up in the air. Just don't like it's looks. Yakima Showdown was a no-brainer for us. 567934

  • Kayak Carrier With Lift Assist for 2018 Honda CR-V With Factory Roof Rack
    While there is a way to use a lift assist to carry kayaks on your 2018 Honda CR-V with a factory roof rack, I checked with Yakima and their Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier and Lift Assist # Y04081 will not work. Instead, I strongly recommend the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier and TelosXL Load Assist w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style - Side Loading # MPG114MD-351XL. The reason this will work is because the load assist actually attaches to the carrier as opposed to the roof rack of your...

    This will be an extremely tight fit, but you should be able to put two Yakima ShowDowns, part # Y04081 on a pair of Thule 78 inch crossbars equipped to your 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan. If you actually have a set of 80 inch bars, you won't have any trouble. Prior to installing, be sure to verify your vehicle's roof capacity with your owner's manual or manufacturer. This capacity will include the weight of the rack, both carriers and the kayaks you are planning on carrying. Based on my...

  • Load-Assisted Side-Load Kayak Carrier for Use on 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
    In order to use any side-load-assisted kayak carrier such as the Yakima ShowDown # Y04081 you will need to have a compatible roof rack on the vehicle. If you have a factory roof rack on the Outback then all you need is the ShowDown. If you need a roof rack you can refer to the other linked page to see all available options.

  • Fitting 2 Yakima ShowDowns on a 2003 Honda Element
    The Yakima ShowDown, part # Y04081 is 42 inches wide, and you'll only be able to fit one on your 2003 Honda Element because of the size. On the other end, you could use a J-Style carrier like the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073 to carry your other kayak. This doesn't include full load support like the ShowDown but does have loading ramps to help guide the kayak up into the carrier. I've included a video of the JayLow so you can see more about its features in action.

    I have a solution for you, but the Yakima ShowDown Kayak Lift, part # Y04081, is only compatible with roof racks that extend at least 3.5 inches past the tower. The factory roof rack for the 2007 Nissan Xterra is not a compatible fit. If you're looking for load-assist, the next best fit for your goals is to use a roller-style mount, like the Yakima HandRoll, part # Y04082-2. This rack will help you load by providing a set of rollers on the rear of the vehicle to help guide and support...

For that you'd want the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 which does not have this fit exclusion and does have assisted loading.

In order to secure your paddles you can use the Yakima TopGrip Paddle, Shovel, or Axe Holder Bracket part # Y04086. We also have an option to add locks, the Yakima Same Key System part # Y07202.

Check out the install video and picture I attached for more info. Width wise the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 is compatible with paddleboards, but the issue is the vertical height. The J portion of the Hullavator, which is designed for cradling a kayak, would be to tall for a paddleboard as the board would slip right through...

  • Can Yakima Showdown Kayak Carrier Fit on Thule Crossbars
    The Yakima ShowDown part # Y04081 can fit Thule crossbars but the rack can't fit on roof racks that use door jambs as the attachment. So if your 2014 Honda has flush mounted roof rack that your Thule rack attaches too the Yakima Showdown part # Y04081 will fit.

    To use the Yakima ShowDown # Y04081 you would need a roof rack where the crossbars extend past the legs at least 3-1/2". From what I can tell, the Mopar roof rack for your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee has crossbars that end where the legs fit. I do have a solution for you to carry your kayaks but when I reached out to my contact at Yakima she said you would need to at least use their 70" crossbar and that 2 of the ShowDown carriers will be at least 80" wide when placed side by side. Because...

    The best option I have for you to easily load the Hobie Mirage Eclipse SUP on your 2018 Toyota RAV4 would be with the Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier part # Y04081. The ShowDown is a very popular option for heavy kayaks and SUPs because it has a set of arms that extend down to about waist level and make for loading and unloading your watercraft very manageable. Please note that in order to use the ShowDown you will need a set of crossbars with at least 4" of overhang past the mounting...

  • Assisted Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Mazda 6 with Yakima Naked Roof
    While the Yakima ShowDown part # Y04081 can be installed on Yakima corebars it can't be installed on roof racks that attach to door jambs using clamps like the Yakima rack you are installing on your 2019 Mazda 6 # Y00421, # Y00146, # Y06130, and # Y06132 so your best option then is the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 you also mentioned. This is an assisted kayak carrier that does fit the Corebars and can be used on roof racks like what you have as well.

  • Mounting Two Yakima ShowDown Kayak Carriers on 1996 Ford F-250 Extended Cab
    The Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier # Y04081 requires at least 3-1/2 inches of crossbar overhang beyond the feet/towers for proper operation. If the existing 58 inch bars on your F-250 overhang by just 1/16 of an inch then you will need bars that are longer by at least 7 inches. For this requirement the Yakima Round 66 Inch Crossbars # Y00410 will work perfectly to mount 1 ShowDown Carrier (this is actually the size Yakima recommends for your F-250 when using the 1A Towers).

    I have a really great assisted kayak carrier solution that is a fit for your 2018 Ford Escape with raised rails and the glass roof but I checked with Yakima and they do not have a way to install their ShowDown. So instead the best option is the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 which is a very easy to use/load assisted kayak carrier like you are wanting. For a roof rack then you'd want the Thule WingBar Evo roof rack part numbers # TH711420 and # TH450R which gives you a very solid and aerodynamic...

    After doing a bit of research, I've come with a couple of options for you. To install a roof rack on top of your truck bed cap or camper shell, I recommend the Thule TracRac CapRac # TH29200XT. This will provide the crossbars needed to attach a roof mounted kayak or SUP carrier. This system has a capacity of 500 lbs but your limiting factor will be the capacity of whichever bed cap you end up going with.

The The T-tracks on the UltraGroove are designed to work with roof rack crossbars and other accessories. To add a set of crossbars to these tracks I recommend the Yakima 60 inch JetStream Bars # Y00425 along with the Landing Pad # Y00221 and Towers # Y00148 to attach them to the tracks....

  • Recommended Roof Rack to Use the Yakima ShowDown on a 2013 Toyota RAV4 with Raised Rails
    If you are interested in the Malone square bar roof rack then I recommend going with the 58" bars # MPG202 over the 50" bars # MPG201 for your 2013 Toyota RAV4. Reason being that the Yakima ShowDown # Y04081 requires that the crossbars extend at least 3-1/2" beyond the towers and I don't think you will achieve this with the 50" bars. As far as best goes, the Malone roof racks are good but they are entry level roof racks so they aren't quite as nice as other name brand options. In my...

    I do have a way that you can carry 2 kayaks on your 2019 Toyota Highlander but when I checked out the online version of the owner's manual on page 204 it states not to exceed 165 lbs of weight on the roof rack. Since your 2 kayaks have a combined weight of 130 lbs and the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 weighs right at 40 lbs that puts you at 170 lbs which is over the weight rating for your Highlander.

    For your 2018 Toyota RAV4 with factory raised roof side rails we have crossbar roof racks that are a fit but not from Malone as they recommend the smaller # MPG215. Instead your best option is the Thule Rapid Crossroad Feet # TH450R, 47" WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711220, as well as locks # TH450400. The Thule crossbars work great with the Yakima Showdown part # Y04081 that you have.

    To install Thule's load-assist Hullavator kayak carrier # TH898 on a vehicle's roof rack the ends of the bars must extend out past the roof rack feet by at least 4-inches. You can see this requirement illustrated in the linked diagram. The comparable Yakima ShowDown carrier # Y04081 also has a similar bar space requirement.

    I do have an option for you but there are two issues you are going to run into trying to use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898 or the Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier part # Y04081. The first issues is that these are each over 40" long therefore you would not be able to fit two side by side and they both require there to be an overhang on the crossbars which the factory roof rack for a Toyota Highlander does not have.

I attached a picture that shows this carrier installed on a set of aero shaped crossbars like the Malone set.

    We do have carriers that will easily handle your 2 SUPs but the Rhino-Rack Nautic 580 Side Loading Kayak Carrier # RR580 is not ideal for transporting two SUPs since it is primarily intended for use with one kayak. If you want a load-assisted carrier you can use the Yakima ShowDown SUP Carrier and Lift Assist, part # Y04081, which includes tie-downs. This carrier works on all roof rack bar shapes and so long as the roof rack is not the type that mounts to the vehicle door jambs. It also...

The J-style of the Hullavator's cradles has tie-downs on top and a SUP does not have the height for it to be secured.

In order to finish the roof rack on your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee you will also need the Yakima JetStream Crossbars part # Y00426 and the BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars part # Y00146.

Therefore, you can use the Malone AirFlow2 to install the Yakima ShowDown on your Toyota RAV4.

If the 40 lb kayak is a little much for you to handle on your own you may want to look into a load assist carrier like the HandRoll # Y04082-2, ShowDown # Y04081, or a supplemental load assist like the Inno # INA453 or Rhino-Rack # RR-RUSL.
