Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe with Factory Installed Crossbars


Which Yakima solutions can you offer for carrying 2 kayaks each +/- 30inch wide? My Hyundai Santa Fe 2007 came with factory mounted crossrails as shown in the added picture.


Expert Reply:

For your situation, I recommend using the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier, # Y04073. This carrier can support up to 2 kayaks and will mount directly to the factory crossbars on your 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. This carrier includes tie down straps to secure both kayaks to the roof rack as well as 2 sets of bow and stern tie downs for each kayak.

You can also add the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores, # Y07202, to the kayak carrier legs to deter theft when you are away from the vehicle and on the river enjoying the day.

In addition to this kayak carrier, I would recommend looking into the Quick Loops, # TH530, and the Hood Loops, # TH529. These will provide a better attachment point for your bow and stern tie downs and will help prevent scratches on your vehicles paint.
