If you have factory crossbars, you can probably get MIGHTYMOUNTS which replace Yakima crossbars; and save you roughly $300.00. Then, for the Kayak, you should get the KAYAK STACKER. Easily the easiest, and most efficent way of transporting kayaks.
I work at an outdoors store, so let me know if you have factory racks on your car (you’ll have to tell me what year and type of car you have), then I’ll check things out for you.
my Canadian Tire Sport Rack and stacker has been awesome, 70 bucks for the racks, 40 for the stacker, then i also have the sport rack Parhona bike rack, its a great set up , not a problem with it, price was right
I am a fan of the Yakima set up, works for my whitewater and seakayaks. The stacker is great, also the hullraiser, hully rollers/mako saddles, etc… and with mighty mounts, they may work with the canadian tire rack.
I don’t have a yakima bike holder, but use a Saris 3 bike holder on the back of the vehicle, works well with most makes and models. I’ve had it 10+ years and it has fit every thing from a minivan, explorer, saturn, mustang, new beetle, expedition, scion, freestyle, grand prix, sunfire, thunderbird, jetta, civic, golf…..these are just the vehicles I’ve used it on, haven’t tried it on the F150 yet. The rack was only about $95.00 USD back when I bought it, and I haven’t found a vehicle it won’t work on.
