Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2018 Chevrolet Malibu


I have a 2018 Chevy Malibu that I need a roof rack for. I also need to be able to carry 2 kayaks on it. Can you suggest what to purchase. I will also need the tie downs and etc.


Expert Reply:

We have plenty of kits that will work great for your 2018 Chevrolet Malibu. I recommend the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426, BaseLine Towers # Y00146, and BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06123. These components will make up your roof rack.

As far as a kayak rack to haul your kayaks, the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier # e98878 is a great option because it comes with straps to tie your kayaks to the carrier and bow/stern straps with anchors. You would need two kits, one for each kayak.

If you would rather have a single kayak carrier that can carry two kayaks, I would go with the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. You would then just need to add one set of tie down straps # e36ZR.
