How do you carry multiple kayaks?

Stacker kayak racks are best for people who need to carry as many kayaks as possible on their vehicle’s roof. Stackers hold the kayaks on their side, therefore they take up less horizontal space on the roof. Stacker kayak racks will typically hold a maximum of 4 kayaks, which no other type of rack can carry.

How many kayaks can fit in a truck?

Can you store a kayak upright?

Don’t store your kayak upright or upside down. Upright (as if you were floating in it) will place the full weight of the kayak to rest on the hull causing it to warp. Upside down will place the weight on the bow and stern, or on other parts of the kayak that stick out.

Should kayak be transported upside down?
