Recommended Kayak Carrier for Use with 2 Kayaks on Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack


I just purchased the 508ex model from you. What would be the best kayak carrier for this setup? I have 2 Vibe kayaks, 11 feet long - 33 inches wide - 60 lbs each. Will the Hullavator work with the cantilever extension?

I have a solution for you, but the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 won't be compatible with the cantilever system on the front bar of your Thule TracRac SR # TH43002XT-508EX. Additionally, the TracRac SR crossbars are a bit larger than normal roof rack crossbars so you will need a system that mounts in the T-slot channels on the TracRac bars. For that I recommend using the Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier # TH849000, which will mount in the T-slots and allow you to carry 1 kayak up to 75-lbs, so they're well equipped for your Vibe kayaks that are 60-lbs. This is a side mounting carrier, but it will work well with the cantilever system on your TracRac. You will need two of these to carry both kayaks, but these are a great solution that comes with tie-down straps included, so you'll have everything you need to secure the boats to your TracRac SR.

I've linked a review video of these for you to check out.
