Malone Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier for 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek


I have a 2013 Subaru XV, Iknow the 50 inch Malone rack MPG201 will fit my car. the question is I have the Malone canoe kit I tried to use them on the factory crossbar. It did not fit. so with the 50inch Malone cross bars set would that fit my old town Saranac 146 with the Malone canoe roof kit?

We can help you figure out a workable roof rack/canoe carrier option for transporting your Old Town Saranac 146. This boat is 14-feet 6-inches long, 36-inches wide and weighs 79-lbs.

The Malone Steel Top roof rack # MPG201 uses square crossbars and is a confirmed fit on the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek with factory installed roof side rails that run front to back. It offers a 165-lb weight capacity so it will be fine for the weight of your Saranac 146. If you want to maximize your rooftop cargo space you might prefer the Malone rack with longer 58-inch bars, part # MPG202, which has the same weight capacity.

The Malone Big Foot Pro Rooftop Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG112MD is a gunwale-style canoe carrier that will fit perfectly on the Malone rack's square bars. This carrier is rated for 90-lbs so it will have enough capacity. Canoe tie-downs and straps are included.
