2 Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Fitting on Narrower Crossbars

Question:

I am trying to asses if I have the room atop my 2017 Santa FE SE 7 passenger / 3 row for two sets of these Y040704. I realize in part this depends on the kayaks, roof rack weight capacity 220lbs and of course the width of my factory cross bars 35inch is the total width of just cross bars. Do you have any examples or photos of two of these unit on one vehicle?

Expert Reply:

I attached a picture of a single kayak carried by the Yakima SweetRoll Kayak Carrier # Y04074 and it takes up most of the roof rack crossbars which would be longer than what you have so I'd anticipate two not fitting but I do have a solution.

For carrying two kayaks on narrower bars the Rhino Rack 2 Kayak Carrier part # S512-S512X is a really great option since the rack does not require much bar space and it holds them very securely.
