Hitch Mounted Upright and Paddleboard Carrier Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Tahoe


I have a 2003 Tahoe with factory roof racks. I would like to use the extender for SUP boards . Are there racks that will fit in my factory rails so I can use them too?. I will remove the cross bars if necessary


Expert Reply:

The Darby Extend-A-Truck Hitch Mounted Load Extender # DTA944 that you referenced can basically fit any vehicle with a 2 inch hitch like your 2003 Chevy Tahoe. Due to the crossbar design of the rack you would basically just be able to strap the boards to the bar since it doesn't use a standard crossbar.

A better option would be the Thule Goalpost part # TH997 which uses a standard square crossbar that would allow a roof carrier to fit.

The Thule SUP Taxi Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # TH810001 would then fit the bars of your Tahoe and the bar of the Goalpost. This can carry up to two boards as well.
