Recommended Kayak Carrier for Two Old Town Loon Kayaks on 2016 Dodge Durango With Factory Bars


TH848 Kayak Racks - I have a 2016 Durango with factory Stow and Go roof racks and two Old Town Loon 111 inch kayaks. 1. Will this product work on my car with factory racks? 2. Is it correct for my over 10 foot kayaks? 3. This product WILL hold TWO kayaks? Right? 4. What other items bow/stern straps will I need for the second kayak?


Expert Reply:

I checked with Thule and so long as you have the factory crossbars installed on your 2016 Dodge Durango the Thule Hull-A-Port XT Kayak Carrier # TH848 will fit on the rack.

The Hull-A-Port will work with kayaks that are over 10 feet like your Old Town Loons and yes it WILL hold two kayaks when you use it in the vertical or post-style position; the kayaks will be placed on their sides. If you forward to about the 8:00 mark in the linked video you can see how two kayaks work with this carrier.

For additional straps to secure your second kayak you will need the Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps # TH523 and Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT. If your Durango does not have built-in tie-down points under the hood you can use the Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs # TH530 and if you want to lock the carrier to your Durango's rack to help protect your investment will need the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450200.
