Recommended Roof Rack and Carrier for 16 Foot Canoe on 2010 Toyota Prius


I need to put my 16 foot canoe on top of my 2010 Prius and drive it 1500 miles. What would work best at the least cost? Thanks,

In order to secure a canoe to your 2010 Toyota Prius, you will need to start with a roof rack system. For your Prius, I recommend the Inno Square Roof Rack System, which consists of # INB127 for the two 50 inch Square Crossbars, # INSUT for the Inno Feet, and # INK865 for the Custom Fit Kit. This is a durable, but economically priced system that will work well as attachment points for your canoe or other roof-mounted cargo.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this system, along with the written installation instructions that you can take a look at.

Then, to secure your canoe to the roof rack, I recommend the Yakima KeelOver Rooftop Canoe Carrier # Y04069. These gunwale brackets will let you carry a canoe hull side up on the roof rack. It includes the needed tie-downs and ropes to help you secure the unit into place for long trips like what you will be going on.
