Is it Possible to Have a Single Crossbar on my Camper with Tracks and a Crossbar Mounted on My Cab?  

Question:

One additional question.... in reading the reviews it seemed to be a common concern that the bar would make noise at freeway speeds. Most stated this would go away with an air fairing attached. Can you recommend which item would work with this set up?

For having one 65-inch Rhino-Rack heavy Duty Crossbar on your camper shell's factory tracks and having one mounted on the cab of your 2018 Ford F-150, you need the following parts:

For the single HD crossbar on the shell:

- 65" Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Roof Rack Crossbars part # RB1650B-2
- Rhino-Rack Quick Mount Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - RTC and RT Roof Rack Tracks - Qty 2 # RRRLT600H
- Roof Rack Leg Spacer Blocks for Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Crossbars part # RRQMHD05

For the single HD crossbar on your cab (using the second crossbar from # RB1650B-2):

- Custom DK Fit Kit for 2 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof # DK427H
- Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Heavy-Duty Crossbars - Naked Roofs or Fixed Mounting Points - Qty 2 # RRRLKHDH

As far as a carrier to mount the canoe, I recommend the Rhino-Rack SUP and Surfboard Pads w/ Tie-Downs for Crossbars - Universal - 27-1/2" Long - Qty 2 # RRRWP04. The Rhino-Rack SUP/Surfboard Pads will also work for your canoe. The pads come with 2 tie-downs with cam buckles to secure your canoe to the HD crossbars. I would recommend the additional etrailer Kayak Tie-Down Kit # e36ZR for additional tie-downs as well as bow/stern ties.

For a fairing that will reduce wind noise and that is compatible with the Rhino-Rack Heavy Duty Crossbars - 60" # RB1650B-2, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 50" Long # RRRF4 along with the Adapter for the Heavy-Duty Crossbars # HD-FK1.
