Expert Answers about Watersport Carriers


  • Best Kayak Carrier for Fishing Kayaks on 2013 Subaru Outback With Factory Crossbars
  • We have a great option to carry a pair of 34" wide fishing kayaks on the factory roof rack of your 2013 Subaru Outback. To do this you will need to use a post- or J-style carrier to carry the kayaks on their sides because there won't be enough room to lay the kayaks flat on your roof. I strongly recommend the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier # TH890000 because it is a 2-in-1 carrier that has the necessary size enough to carry a pair of kayaks that are 34" wide (it fits hull widths...

  • Recommended Kayak Carriers for Two 85 Pound Kayaks
  • I do have a great option for you, however the Thule Compass Kayak carrier # TH890000 won't be able to support your two kayaks that weigh 85 pounds each. The 130 pound capacity you see is for the total weight of both kayaks (75 pounds each). We do not have a similar 2 kayak carrier available that has this kind of capacity so your best option will be to go with separate carriers, one on each side of the vehicle's roof. This is going to make for easier loading anyway since you won't have...

  • Solution for Transporting a 14 Foot Kayak, Two Bikes, and a Vespa Behind Winnebago
  • The best option we have available to transport your mentioned cargo is the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129. This is a lightweight aluminum trailer with enormous versatility due to its two storage levels, heavy-duty crossbars, and built-in tie down points. You could secure your 14 foot kayak on the bottom level and your two bikes on the top level using a couple of the excellent Yakima FrontLoader Carriers # Y02103. With these items loaded you would still have room for additional...

  • Can I Carry 4 Kayaks on Malone MicroSport Trailer?
  • I'll start off by saying that it isn't recommended that you add longer crossbars to the Malone MicroSport XT Trailer # MPG460XT because adding too much weight outside of the wheels will effect the stability of the trailer when cornering. With that being said, the crossbars that are included on the trailer will allow you to use your Thule Hull-A-Port XT # TH848 spread out to acommodate the 4 kayaks you're wanting to carry without any issue. However, I believe I have a better solution...

  • Can the Thule Roof Rack from a 2014 Subaru Outback be Used on a 2019 Subaru Outback
  • The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898 and what looks to be the Thule DockGlide Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # TH896 that you had on your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon can still be used on your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon assuming space permits. However, the 2014 Subaru Outback (non-sport) has raised side rails and the 2019 Subaru Outback (non-touring) has flush side rails so the mounting feet and fit kit cannot be carried over. Instead, you will need to swap these out for the...

  • What Makes the Yakima Rack and Roll Different From the Malone MicroSport Trailers
  • The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08107 is designed primarily for lighter loads such as watersport accessories and cargo. These lighter loads require a more sophisticated suspension i.e. coilovers in order to ride smoothly. If you just need to carry more weight and don't mind a rougher ride then you can go with the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G which has an 800 lbs weight capacity and utilizes a less sophisticated leaf spring suspension system that can carry more yes but...

  • Will Two 30 Inch Wide Kayaks Fit on Lower Deck of Yakima EasyRider Trailer
  • I don't believe your two 30 inch wide kayaks will fit on the bottom deck of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 . I confirmed through my contact at Yakima that the width of the bottom deck is 54 inches inside to inside of the 2 inch diameter tubing that make up the frame. Because the bottom deck has a height of 21 inches, you would not be able to fit your 30 inch wide kayaks on their side, as you mentioned. You could, however, fit one on the bottom and a second or third...

  • Is the Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier Compatible with Bikes That Have Fenders
  • The Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier # Y07411 is a great option for hauling bikes in the back of your 2018 Nissan Titan. This is a universal carrier though and is more or less meant to help keep your tailgate and bikes from damaging each other. From the picture you sent in it looks like you have an E-Bike with fenders. While the pad won't necessarily scratch the fenders, I'd be afraid that your fender might get bent out of shape if you have the weight of your bike pressing...

  • 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...

  • Can Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier Haul Fishing Kayak
  • Yes, the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs # S65145 is compatible with a 36 inch wide fishing kayak, but there are also better options for this style of kayak. Instead of the single saddle of the Exo Aero I highly recommend using one with four separate saddles that you can position at the width of your choosing for optimal security. A budget-friendly but solid option is the Rola Hull-Hauler Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Clamp On # 599131....

  • Will Malone DownLoader Fit Aero Crossbars on a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • The Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG114MD is designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars so it should fit the aero style crossbars on your 2014 Subaru Forester. The Malone AirFlow2 crossbars are 3" wide x 1" tall and the DownLoader will fit this so you can use these dimensions as a reference plus if you have the T-slots on your crossbars you can use the Fit Kit # MPG6604 and not have to worry about the clamps fitting at all.

  • Roof Rack and 2-Kayak Carrier for 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan
  • Yes, the Thule Compass 2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH890000 will absolutely work for your 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer 4-door sedan, you simply need to add a roof rack to mount the carrier on. By far the best option for a roof rack for your Lancer is from Rhino-Rack because it is the best value for your Lancer - the rack is premium quality but with a better price tag than similar options. It also has aerodynamic bars for a quieter ride and each part of the rack is so durable it comes...

  • Mounting Hardware Only for Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier
  • I believe I know what you are wanting to do and for this you would just need two of the Replacement Bar Mount Assembly # 7521741001. This is the piece that gets installed onto the roof rack crossbar to which the lift arm and cradle assemblies for the Thule Hullavator # TH898 attach. To install the new bar mounts to square crossbars bars you will need 4 each of the Carriage Bolt # 915-0622-54, Washer # 951061254, and Round Nut # 853-5439. If you are using integrated T-channels on aero-style...

  • 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...

  • Recommendation To Help With Reaching Taller Van Roof To Load Paddleboards

I recommend to use the Thule Telescoping Ladder for Vans - 9 Steps - 8-1/2' part # TH301404 the bracket easily attaches to the side of the van with magnets. Then the ladder snaps into the bracket so you can reach higher when you are loading the paddleboard to make it much easier. It also folds up and fits into a handy storage bag when you are not using it. I have...

  • Using Malone MegaWing Kayak Carrier on Trailer to Secure Old Town Fishing Kayak
  • The Malone MegaWing Kayak Carrier # MPG207 referenced in your question is a great option for your Old Town Fishing Kayak that weighs around 120 pounds. The MegaWing is made specifically for heavier fishing kayaks like this and its 150 pound weight capacity is more than enough to safely support it. The carrier is designed to mount to a couple of crossbars that are up to 4-1/4 inches wide so you will need to fabricate a rack to mount to your trailer's frame or you can use something like...

  • Best Cargo Basket For Lower Level On Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
  • The best cargo basket we have to use on the lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer part # Y08129 is the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket part # Y07080-82. This is the largest cargo basket that Yakima offers and will fit perfectly as you can see in the attached photo.

  • Are Roller Bunks or Keel Rollers Needed on the CE Smith Boat Trailer Part # CE48810
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer part # CE48810 comes with guide ons which help to center your boat during loading and to hold the boat during transport so I don't really recommend adding anything additional in regards to this aspect because of the size of the boat. However, if you will be launching your boat at night or in the early mornings I recommend using the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights part # CE27740 which will provide visual targets. What I do recommend using is a two...

  • 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.

  • Tire and Axle Differences Between The Yakima Rack and Roll and Easy Rider Trailers
  • I checked with Yakima who confirmed the tires on the Easy Rider Trailer # Y08129 are tubeless and do not require inner tubes like the Rack and Roll # Y08107. Both the Rack and Roll and Easy Rider trailer axles should be greased before installation as part of maintenance but have sealed bearings so would not be a fit for the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A. A third option worth considering is the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G that also has tubeless tires like the...

If you have the oldest version, which is the 897 (and only available from February 2005 - December 2005), I checked with Thule and they no longer offer replacement mounting brackets. If you have the Hullavator 897XT though, there are a number of replacement parts available, depending on what you need. - Replacement Underbar Bracket for...

  • Anti-Theft Lock Recommendations for Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129
  • I can definitely help come up with a way to make the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 as theft resistant as possible but I can't safely recommend you replace the hardware that secures the coupler or hinge to the trailer tongue with hitch locks of any kind. You have to use the included hardware otherwise the warranty of the trailer would be voided and you'd be potentially unsafe to yourself and other motorists. So for the latch of the coupler you could use a trigger latch...

  • Comparing 339-LRUNISETX vs 339LRUNISETA Lockrack Watersport Carriers
  • The biggest difference is that the Lockrack Watersport Carrier # 339LRUNISETA has a single pad that you use to mount your kayak, canoe, or SUP on while the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX has 2 sets of pads that your kayak, canoe, or SUP rests on. The advantage of using the adjustable option is that if your roof rack does not use round bars you can actually ignore the middle black piece and adjust the pads freely from each other on your roof rack. This means that...

  • Will the Malone Retractable Tongue Kit Fit A CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Trailer

The other option you have is a fold-away tongue kit, the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit part # FHDPB230101 which we do know will work.

  • Load Assisted Kayak Carriers for 2019 Honda Pilot for 2 Kayaks
  • The Thule Hullavator Kayak Carriers # TH898 weigh 40-lbs each by themselves so the two empty carriers alone will consume half of the Pilot's rated 165-lb roof capacity. While there are some lightweight kayaks out there most weigh 40-lbs or more apiece. Apart from the weight concern there is the matter of space; each Hullavator requires 28.5-inches of space on the crossbars so the Pilot would have to be fitted with at least 57 inch long bars. The Hullavator also requires 4-8 inches of...

  • Best Trailer and Attachments To Carry Two Kayaks and Two SUPs

In order to attach the kayaks, the Malone J-Pro Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG116MD (one set for each kayak) would be an excellent option. In order to attach the SUP's, I recommend the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier part # INA446 but you could get away with stacking them one on top of the other with the Malone SUP30 Surfboard and SUP Pads part # MPG312.

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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Hullavator and Kayak Carrier on 2019 Honda Pilot
  • Thank you for all of the information! While you are able to use the Hullavator # TH898 with your setup as far as weight goes, this kayak carrier does require the crossbars to stick out 4" - 8" out past the roof rack feet. Since the Thule SquareBars have a limited amount of space under them for the feet you can only use the 53" Bars # TH712400 but this wouldn't give you the required spacing for the Hullavator. I recommend using the Yakima 60" JetStream Crossbar # Y00426 instead with...

  • Roof Rack and Stand-Up Paddle Board Carrier for 2014 Hyundai Elantra Sedan
  • That's a good question, and in order to carry a stand-up paddle board (SUP) on your 2014 Hyundai Elantra sedan you will need a roof rack and a SUP carrier. Let's start with the roof rack and for that I recommend the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59867. This rack is a quality option that is far more budget-friendly than other racks and is going to be perfect for you since all you need is to carry a single paddle board. The other thing you need is a SUP carrier and I recommend the...

  • Does The Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier Or The Yakima ShowDown Make It Easier To Load Kayaks
  • It is correct you will need at least 4" of bar overhang to use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 or Yakima ShowDown Kayak # Y04081 so that the lift assist does not touch the vehicle during the loading process. For the roof rack on the 2019 Toyota RAV4 I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 which are aerodynamic bars that attach to the raised side rails of the Toyota and measure 58" long so will provide plenty enough overhang for the lift assist features.

  • 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....

  • Can Spare Be Carried on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT

The crossbar spread for this is between 44 and 63 inches normally which might get slightly reduced when carrying the spare, but in most cases there's no need for that much of a spread.

  • Should Yakima Rock and Roll Trailer Upgrade to Heavy Duty Shocks
  • While there isn't a life expectancy, per se, of the shocks on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 and 78" # Y08107, upgrading to the HD shocks is absolutely a good idea if your gear weighs around 200 llbs and certainly anything above that. The Heavy Duty Shocks for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08110 do increase the capacity of your trailer from 250 lbs to 350 lbs so if you need that extra capacity, the HD shocks are what you'll need. That said, if you are just in the...

For a kayak carrier that will do an excellent job carrying both of your kayaks the Thule Compass part # TH890000 would be a really great choice.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for Two Kayaks with Combined Width of 46" on 47" Crossbars
  • I do have a great option for you, however if the combined width of both your kayaks is 46 inches you won't be able to secure them using two of the Thule DockGrip Kayak Carriers # TH895 on your WingBar Load Bars. This is because there will need to be a small gap between the two carriers due to the cradle design which would push one of the cradle sets beyond the 47" length of your crossbars. For this application I instead recommend using a couple J-style carriers like the excellent etrailer.com...

There is a different Rola rooftop basket you can use, the Rola Atlas Roof Cargo Basket # 59043.

  • Best SUP Carrier For Easy and Quick Loading
  • It really depends on the carrier you go for. For the Thule Taxi XT # TH810001 I recommend putting a tie down in the front. Just because there is only one narrow strap securing your paddle board to the carrier and when you're driving at high speeds the paddle board will catch quite a bit of air which will raise the front of the board. I suggest the same thing for a Yakima Rack like the SUPDawg # Y04075. Same idea here, highway speeds will raise up the front end so again I recommend using...

I attached a video below with this set on a 2019 Toyota RAV4 and you can see how they don't stick out too far.

  • Is the Thule Compass Kayak Carrier Lockable
  • I have a solution for you but the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # TH890000 does not have it own locking system. This is fairly common among the kayak carriers. The best solution to lock the Compass would be a cable lock like the Thule Cable Lock w/ One Key System Lock - 6' Long part # TH538XT. The Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # TH849000 is a carrier that can be locked to the roof rack but only transports one boat so you would need two of them.

  • Is Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier Compatible with OEM Roof Rack on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • To use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 on your 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee you're going to need to upgrade your roof rack system. The Hullavator requires that the crossbars stick out past the roof rack legs by at least 4" so that the arms won't come in contact with the vehicle when they are lowered. Since your OEM crossbars end in the feet they won't be long enough. For upgrading your roof rack system I highly recommend the Yakima JetStream system which consists of the 50"...

  • The Thule Hullavator, # TH898, will fit on a Yakima roof rack so if you like the spacing and looks of the Yakima racks you can certainly go that route for your 2018 Subaru Outback. With the Hullavator the roof rack crossbars need to stick out past the mounting feet by at least 4 inches.

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a 2018 Toyota Camry
  • I have a great option for you to carry multiple kayaks on your 2018 Toyota Camry. The method you have chosen of using j-style carriers will be best because it is easier to load them onto the roof from each side of the vehicle. For a j-style carrier, I really like the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier part # S512 because it has pretty much all of the same features (folding design, padding for protection, included tie-downs) as the top tier brands like Thule and Yakima but at only a fraction...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack to Use With Thule Stacker to Carry 2 Kayaks

I recommend using the Rhino Rack Roof Rack System that uses parts # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK284 since it's an extremely durable, well made rack that comes at a more pocketbook friendly price than something from Thule or Yakima. This is compatible with the Stacker and will allow you to carry both kayaks. I've linked a brief review video of this rack for you to...

  • Best Kayak Trailer for 4 Kayaks

The XtraLight trailer has a 275-lbs total capacity, so as long as your kayaks don't weigh more than that combined it would be a good choice to carry all your boats. The XtraLight is designed for use with a 2" hitch ball and comes with a 4 way trailer connector. If you need the added weight capacity for all 4 boats, the MicroSport...

An inch or two in either direction would work, but the seven inch difference you have would make the trailer susceptible to fishtailing due to the uneven tongue height.

The retactable tongue kit that fits this trailer is the # MPG494 which decreases the length of the trailer by 61 inches. And then for the "kickstand" we also have the Trailer Tongue Kickstand for Malone Trailers # MPG467 which is basically just a swivel trailer jack.

The reason for that is the recommended crossbar length for your '20 4Runner is 53 inches, which would be approximately even with the sides of your vehicle, and would need crossbars at least 76 inches for a pair of Hullavators, which would stick out so much the bars would be a legitimate danger...
