Does Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier Fit Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars on 2017 Toyota Camry Sedan


Hello E-trailer, I have a 2017 Camry that I would like to haul 1 or 2 kayaks with. I like the Rhino roof rack system. But I like the lockable Yakima folding Kayak carrier Y04073. Please confirm that I can mount the Yakima carriers to the Rhino crossbars. Thank you


Expert Reply:

You made a couple of great choices with the kayak carrier and roof rack for your Camry, and I can confirm that the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbars are 100 percent compatible with the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073.

The carrier will fit perfectly on Rhino-Rack crossbars, and comes with tie-down straps for a single kayak, so if you wanted to use it to carry two kayaks you would need the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes # Y04031. Additionally, you can lock the JayLow to the roof rack with the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07202.

As for the roof rack, I have added a photo showing the Rhino-Rack on a 2017 Toyota Camry sedan, and the exact parts that comprise the Rhino-Rack system for your Camry are the following:

- Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Silver # RRVA118S-2 or Black # RRVA118B-2

- Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA

- Custom DK Fit Kit # DK321
