Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier Customer Reviews
7 Customer Reviews
Unless you live on a houseboat, you’re going to have to haul your kayaks down to the water when you want to stretch your oars. The only trouble is that you can’t exactly stuff a 10’ fiberglass hull into your trunk. When you equip your ride with the Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier, it’s easy to fit multiple boats onto your ride’s roof. The compact J-style cradles provide ample room to carry more than 1 kayak, or other outdoor gear.
Unlike learning how to do an Eskimo roll, using your Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier is simple. It mounts to Thule crossbars (and most factory-installed bars) using quick-fit hardware. Once attached, you just lift your kayak into the J-style cradles—no adjustments needed. The included ratcheting tie downs, straps and buckle protectors ensure that your vessel stays put during the drive. Plus, Thule backs your Stacker with a Lifetime Warranty.

Super easy to install even though instructions weren't too helpful. Took less than 10 min to Install. Solid mounts Mounted 2 canoes to travel over 1800 miles help solid. I'd recommend and would buy again.

The Thule Stacker does exactly what it says it does. I have to kayaks and I was able to attached both of them easily to the roof with the Stacker. I discovered it is not a bad idea to have a second set of Thule tie downs because I keep a kayak on either side of the Stacker and when you remove one kayak you may knock the other one of the roof. Also, the Thule tie downs are awesome and much easier to use then regular straps. Autoanything also had this item for about $40 cheaper with free shipping

Great build quality, sturdy and strong. I strapped two kayaks to the stacker and everything held together nice and tight. The straps that Thule provides are of excellent build quality as well. Overall an excellent value, I would definitely buy this again.

We were able to easily mount two sets of the Thule Stacker on the factory roof racks on our mini van, and easily carried our three kayaks that way. The tie down straps worked very well, and getting the kayaks on and off was easy.

thule makes a fine product, well engineered. this works well and looks good. it folds down so i can leave it on my xterra and go in the garage. j type carriers are easier to load up the kayak, but are much more money and generally do not fold down unless you pay around $180 for them and you need two for 2 kayaks. this carries two easily and is less than half the price.

The Thule Stacker works great !! It saves alot of screwing around with a maze of ropes and tie downs , then folds down tight to the roof . I have only used it for my kayaks but can see many other uses for light duty support hauling . All they lack is a anti-theft device , which is easy enough to make from coated cable and a small pad lock or just use a gun lock .

We have a Standard mini van with a Thule Sidekick on top. Will the Kayak fit next to it? Does anyone have both? Do you have a picture? Thanks Aly

I'm confused by the picture. Does one set accommodate 2 kayaks, and 2 sets are necessary for 3 kayaks?

Are the cross bars and straps included?

Hey Dan, Cross bars are not included. However, you do get: tie downs, 2 straps, and buckle protector. Hope that clarifies!flag Accept Answer
