Expert Reply:

The Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier, # RRS520, can carry 1 to 4 kayaks, but the number of kayaks that you can carry with the width of the roof rack on you 2012 Toyota RAV4 will be limited.

Trying to carry more than 2 kayaks on the RAV4 factory rack will be pushing the limit for the vehicle's roof rack.

One option you could explore is using a trailer to carry the kayaks with your RAV4. The Malone XtraLight Trailer, # MPG525G, would allow you to carry a kayaks up to 14 feet long.

The vehicle will have to have a trailer hitch installed to use the Malone XtraLight trailer. The Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, # 75235, for the Toyota RAV4 is the hitch I recommend if you do not already have one installed. I also recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # 989900, with this hitch.
