Boat Saddles Recommendation for 2006 Nissan Xterra With Factory Crossbars


2006 Nissan Xterra w/factory rack I successfully installed the Yakima boat roller on the back of my factory rack, despite the semi-elliptical shape of the crossbars. Will the Yakima or any other boat saddles also be compatible with my crossbars?


Expert Reply:

The Yakima EvenKeel Flexible Boat Saddles for Roof-Rack Crossbars, # Y04052, will fit on your semi-elliptical factory crossbars. I confirmed this fit with Yakima.

Yakima also lists the SweetRoll Kayak Carrier # Y04074 as a fit for your Xterra's factory crossbars.

Thule does have some watersport saddles that will work also, like the Thule Top Deck Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie Downs, # TH881.

The Thule parts will all attach to the factory semi-elliptical crossbars.
