Ask the Experts about this Yakima Watersport Carriers

  • How To Secure A Kayak On the Lower Level Of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
    I spoke with Yakima and they informed me that the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # Y04091 will fit on the lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer part # Y08129 and will then allow you to secure your Hobie Tandem Mirage Kayak. The BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and works with very larger crossbars so you will not have any issues. I will however say that most customers just use ratchet straps and pads to secure a kayak to the crossbars on the lower...

  • Recommended Fixed Point Roof Rack for Carrying a Kayak with a 2019 Subaru Impreza
    Since you are wanting to use longer crossbars I recommend going with a Yakima roof rack because the slot on the bottom of the crossbars (where they mount to the feet) extend the whole length of the bar which means you can easily choose the length crossbar that you want to use on your 2019 Subaru Impreza. Typically this roof rack consists of the 50" JetStream Bars # Y00425 Black or # Y00428 Silver, the SkyLine Towers # Y00148, and the Landing Pad 22 # Y00248. This mounts to fixed points...

  • Recommended Trailer for Two Titan Propel 12 Kayaks
    The best trailer we offer for your two Titan Propel 12 Kayaks is the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08107 paired with the Heavy Duty Shocks for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08110. The reason that I recommend the Rack and Roll is because of the fully independent, adjustable suspension which is going to provide a much better ride quality with less bounce when compared to the traditional leaf spring suspension system like on the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer. That said, if you...

  • Will the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier Work With a Hobie Kayak
    The best kayak carrier for a Hobie kayak is the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which is specifically designed for larger fishing kayaks. The Yakima BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and you can adjust the cradles to fit the exact shape/width of the hull on the Hobie kayak allowing for the best fit. The Yakima BigCatch will also fit the factory crossbar on the Subaru Crosstrek no problem. The Yakima BigCatch comes with all the required tie downs as well so you don't have...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for Feelfree Lure II 14 Foot Kayak on 2017 Honda CR-V
    Your Freelfree Overdrive Lure II Tandem kayak will indeed fit on your existing roof rack. According to what I've managed to look up, the kayak weighs up to 115 lbs, which is well within the capabilities of the Yakima Jetstream roof rack you mentioned. I have the perfect carrier for you. The Yakima BigCatch # Y04091 would work great for you. Due to the width of your kayak, using a j-style carrier like the Thule # TH834 Hull-A-Port wouldn't be a good choice, but the BigCatch would allow...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation to Carry Fishing Kayak with 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon Touring
    Thank you for all of the information! We do have a solution for you to carry a heavier fishing kayak, like the Old Town Predator PDL or the Hobie Outback, on the roof of your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon Touring Edition. For your application I recommend using the Yakima JetStream roof rack system which consists of their 50" Long Black # Y00425 or Silver # Y00428 JetStream Crossbars, RidgeLine Towers # Y00145, and RidgeClip Fit Kit # Y06028. This system has a 165 lb weight capacity so you...

  • Can I Use the Rhino Rack Vortex ROC25 with the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Saddle on a 2019 VW Golf 5 Dr
    I'll try to tackle these in the order you asked them: 1) No, the # RRRS605B will not mount where the plastic tab is and will instead mount 7-7/8" towards the front of the vehicle from the line where the front and rear door meet- the # RRRS605B will clamp into the door jams on your 2019 VW Golf 5dr 2) It's generally a no-go when it comes to opening your moon roof with a roof rack attached to your roof. Luckily this roof rack is fairly easy to install and remove so you'll likely want...
