Front Hitch, Roof Rack and Upright Crossbar for Front of 2015 Ford F-350 for Hauling Kayaks


I am looking for a solution to haul 4 kayaks on the roof of a 2015 F-350 crew cab with out extending over the bed by more than a few inches. I haul a fifth wheel so cant impinge on bed area. I was thinking a front hitch with a goal post and a roof bar -what would you suggest for these? And what type and what attachments to hold the kayaks to the racks/bars? Also, I have seen capacity stated on racks at 165 pounds, is that power bar, so Id have 300 pound capacity with 2 bars?

We can help you set your truck up to carry kayaks at the front of your 2015 Ford F-350 with a goalpost style crossbar installed in a front hitch.

For a front hitch the Draw Tite part # 65049 would be the first part of the puzzle that is confirmed to fit your truck.

For the roof rack you wil need the part numbers # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK190. This will give you two crossbars for your roof that will have a 165 lb capacity. This capacity is for both bars together.

For the upright mount you would need the Thule Goalpost # TH997 . This has a capacity of 165 lbs as well.
