Using Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier on 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon with Factory Crossbars


I have a Thule Hullavator that was mounted on my Toyota on square Thule bars. I now have a 2016 Subuaru Outback. Would the TH532 Ride On Adapter allow me to mount my bars on top of the oval Subaru bars and attach the Hullavator? thanks!

I do have a solution for you, however the Thule Ride-On Adapter # TH532 referenced in your question is designed to support 2 bike carriers and simply does not have the required capacity or size to mount and operate the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898.

I instead recommend installing the Thule Roof Rack, which consists of # THARB47 for the crossbars, # TH460R for the foot pack and # THKIT4063 for the fit kit. This system is confirmed to fit your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory installed crossbars and will allow you to use your Hullavator.

I have attached an installation video on this roof rack for you to check out.
