Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2019 Subaru Crosstrek with Factory Roof Rack


Hi, I saw the answer you gave about the 2018 Crosstrek. Can you please let me know if the 2019 Crosstrek will also take this model Thule Kayak carrier? I would like to put 2 kayaks on top. When I bought my car new last month they only had the one Kayak option as an accessory. Its been kind of confusing. Thanks!

It's likely going to fit just fine but I checked with Thule and they haven't tested the Hull-A-Port XT, part # TH848, on the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek as of yet so I can't say with certainty. It does fit the 2018 and the 2019 is the same generation so that's a good sign.

A similar kayak carrier is the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073. It is confirmed, by Yakima, to fit the 2019 Crosstrek and will also carry both your kayaks.

I've linked videos on both of the carriers.

With either of them I recommend adding locks. Thule's locks are part # TH450200 and for the Yakima use part # Y07202 instead. You also need additional tie downs for the second kayak, part # Y04031. Finally, to make things easier with the tie downs I also like to recommend the Malone QuickLash loops, part # MPG308.
