Foam Block and Saddle Style Roof Rack Kayak Carrier Recommendations for a 2007 Toyota 4Runner


I own a 2007 Toyota 4Runner and I am looking for a kayak carrier for the roof. I prefer to purchase either foam with tie downs or the saddles, however I am unsure which one or if either will fit my factory rack. Can you please assist me in finding the right carrier for my 4Runner?


Expert Reply:

If you decide on foam blocks with tie downs the Rightline Gear Foam-Block-Style Kayak Carrier, # RL100K10, would work great on your 2007 Toyota 4Runner. This system includes basic tie downs for the front and back of the kayak. I would recommend adding attachment points like the Thule Hood Loops, # TH529 to secure the front and rear tie downs.

You may also want to check out the Thule Quick Draw Ratchet-Rope Tie Down System, # TH855XT. This system makes tying down the bow and stern much easier and more secure.

If you decide to go with saddles the Thule Top Deck Kayak Saddles, # TH881, would make a great choice and will also fit on your factory cross bars. You could use the same hood loops and Quick Draw ratchet-rope system to make installation easier with these saddles also.
