Roof Rack, Canoe Carrier and Cargo Box for 2015 Nissan Pathfinder with Naked Roof


Hi there, I have Nissan Pathfinder 2015 naked roof. I would like to use its roof for caring a canoe 36 inch wide and Yakima Sky box 16 also 36 inch. I checked your web-site but I dont see the option to carry both these things all crossbars are too short. Can you please advise which system/solution will work out for me? Thanks.

We have several roof rack options for your 2015 Nissan Pathfinder with a naked roof, and these can be seen on the page I linked for you. Please note that all of these racks have 59-inch crossbars.

I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex black bar system made of parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK407. This racks offers a high 165-lb weight capacity, aerodynamic elliptical bars that will make less noise than most other shapes and it offers excellent compatibility with rooftop carriers. You can refer to the linked video to see more on this item.

For a canoe carrier I suggest the Swagman Exo Aero # S65145 which can mount at the outside end of the bars to save space.

If your large 36-inch-wide Yakima Skybox 16 cargo box # Y07335 interferes with the canoe you can switch to a narrower box like the Skybox 12 # Y07334 which is only 24-inches wide.

Keep in mind that the total combined weight of your canoe, cargo box and its contents cannot exceed the 165-lb rack weight rating.
