The roof rack recommended for your 2019 Ford Edge is the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System because it is a bit more cost effective than other top tier options like Thule and Yakima but you still get the same level of quality and it even comes with locks whereas that would be extra for both Thule and Yakima. If your 2019 Ford Edge has flush side rails then you will need part # RRVA126B-2 or part # RRVA126S-2 and part # RRSX024 but if you just have a bare roof with no flush side rails then you will need part # RRVA137B-2 or part # RRVA137S-2, part # RRRLKVA, and part # DK432.

For a kayak carrier, I recommend two sets of the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier part # S512. If you have help loading the kayaks then you can save some money and go with the Rhino-Rack 2 Kayak Carrier part # S512-S512X but keep in mind you will have to reach further over your roof to load the kayaks with this whereas the other can be loaded from the side at the very end of the crossbar.

Question:

Do you have any installation instructional video (YouTube)? How difficult would it be to install it all by myself and what would be the approximate cost? I have a bare roof

If you have a bare roof on your 2019 Ford Edge then you will want to use the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System part # RRVA137B-2 or part # RRVA137S-2, part # RRRLKVA, and part # DK432. The install process is very easy and you will be able to do this all by yourself without any special tools needed. I have attached an install video for you on a 2015 model that will be practically the same as your 2019.
