Roof Rack for Carrying 3 Kayaks on Roof of 2003 Chevy Suburban


Yes, need recommendation on which roof bar and holders to acquire to hold 2 10 ft wilderness tarpon kayaks sit on top, and one 118inch Emotion Steath Pro kayak? Would like to get a wider bar that 58, maybe 66. And perhaps transport 1 with Emotion right side up, and the two smaller 10 ft vertically OR 2 the Emotion on a J bar, and the other one on another J bar on opposite side, and smaller one upside down in between them in the middle. Thanks,

To install a longer crossbar roof rack on your 2003 Chevy Suburban you'd want the Inno Roof Rack part numbers # INFR and # INB165 which gives you a 65 inch crossbar roof rack confirmed as a fit. 65 inches of bar space should be enough for 3 kayaks without being too overboard so this would work well.

For a J-carrier we have the Yakima JayLow part # Y04073 which can carry two kayaks on end if needed. And then for a saddle style carrier we have the Rhino Rack # RR581 which will work great too. The saddles have fabric pads on them to allow the kayak to slide forward through them like if you were loading a kayak from the rear.
