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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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. If you...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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 38-inches of space on the crossbars so the Pilot would have to be fitted with very long bars. Even the longest aftermarket roof rack bars made for your...

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 Trailer for Bass Pro Pond Prowler 10 Foot Fishing Boat
  • We have a really great option for a trailer for your 10 foot Bass Pro Pond Prowler boat, although the Malone trailer you mentioned has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available. Instead, which I highly recommend is an option from CE Smith: - CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer with Bunks # CE48810 When I looked up your boat it was just 130 lbs and 48 inches wide so it is going to be a perfect fit for this trailer and something you'll be able to easily...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Best Cargo Basket For Lower Level On Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer

This is the largest cargo basket that Yakima offers and will fit perfectly as you can see in the attached photo.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a 2018 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack and Have Load Assist
  • 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. If you want to go with a trailer like the Malone...

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.

  • Comparing 339-LRUNISETX vs 339LRUNISETA Lockrack Watersport Carriers

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 Rola Cargo Basket and Kayak Carrier be Used Together
  • The Rola Hull-Hauler Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # 59913 will only attach to roof racks and is not compatible with your Rola rooftop cargo basket like the Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504. There is a different Rola rooftop basket you can use, the Rola Atlas Roof Cargo Basket # 59043. The reason you can use this is because of its integrated load bars that are inside the basket and allow you to mount accessories like a kayak carrier.

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.

  • Will Thule Hullavator Fit a Yakima Roof Rack on a 2018 Subaru Outback
  • 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. What this means you will need to use longer bars than what would normally be recommended for the vehicle. If you go with a round bar system then you will need the following parts: Crossbars # Y00409 SkyLine...

  • 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...

You will need to check and make sure you have sufficient clearance between your vehicle and the Hullavator when it is lowered which means your crossbars on the Hullavator loading side must extend 4 inches to 8 inches beyond the feet (see picture).

  • 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"...

  • 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...

  • 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.

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. With that said, there is a similar trailer that is going to work very well for you, the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT, which requires...

Either will work great on a Malone roof rack as well.
