Product Description

New for 2019 Thule Top-Selling Thule Hull-a-Port kayak rack is now offered in this re-designed XT model. This premium kayak roof rack is a rock-solid option to carry your kayak on its side which is a beneficial feature for 2 reasons: strength and space. Kayaks are very strong along their side, so storing it on its side will prevent any unwanted flexing or warping. Additionally, when you store your kayak on its side you free up room for more gear on your roof. Our customers frequently fit 2 kayaks on their car, truck, or SUV's roof. 

Thule is known for their quality and this kayak rack is no exception. Each rack is powder coated for rust protection which means you can feel confident using it with your salt-water-soaked kayak. Four thick pads will provide a soft cushion to secure your kayak against the rack. The large J-style hooks provide plenty of clearance which means getting your kayak in and out is a breeze. 

Compact folding design The Hull-a-Port XT offers allows you to transport your kayaks with confidence and also fold down for a compact, aero-dynamic rack. No need to worry about removing your rack in between each use, just fold them down until your next trip to the water!

Please note: this rack will fit most factory and aftermarket roof bars, but it will NOT fit Thule's Aero bars. Thule's square and circle bars work fine, and so do most other brand's square and circle roof bars. If you would like this rack to work with your Aero bars, then you will need an adapter kit. 

  • 20" x 9" x 20"
  • Weight: 12.5 lbs
  • Load capacity: 130lbs
  • Strap length: 15 ft.
 
Q:
I have a Mini Cooper countryman. I already have the Mini Cooper base rack. I need a kayak carrier to mount on top. Does this Thule mount to the Mini Cooper base rack?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A:
The manufacturers fit guide for the Thule Hull-O-Port Kayak Rack shows it can work with a Mini Cooper Countryman's rack - it indicates a Countryman with a factory rack that has "flush rails." So if the base/factory rack on your model has those flush rails, it should be fine. Additionally, the Thule rack fits most factory crossbars that are square or round, but it does not fit aero-shaped bars. So if the shape of the bars on your roof rack are standard square or round ones, it should work.
 
Q:
Will the Hull a Port kayak carrier properly attach to the crossbars of my factory GMC Acadia roof rack?
 
A:
According to Thule's fit guide, the Hull-a-Port Pro fits GMC Acadia's with factory crossbars.
 
Q:
I have a 2012 Mini Cooper Countryman with manufacturer's base rack. I need a Kayak Mount to fit this base, do you know if it will fit?
 
A:
Yes, this should work for transporting your kayak, as the manufacturer's fit guide is showing that the Kayak Hull-a-Port Pro fits your 2012 Mini Cooper Countryman (with base rack).
 
Q:
Does the Hull A Port Pro come with two brackets for holding one kayak?
 
A:
Yes, the Hull-a-Port Pro includes two cradles to hold on kayak on its side!
 
Q:
I have a Pontiac vibe gt and was wondering if the pro will attach directly to the roof rack or if I will need an adapter of some sort?
 
A:
The Hull-a-Port Pro is showing in the manufacturer's fit guide as working for the factory racks on the Pontiac Vibe; I didn't see the specific GT model - but there were several types of factory racks listed, and it was showing the Hull-a-Port Pro works for those racks without an adapter.
 
Q:
I have a kayak and it is 14 feet long. How far apart do these mounts need to be spaced apart?
 
A:
The Hull-a-Port kayak rack attaches to existing crossbars on your vehicle, so you attach one J-cradle to the rear crossbars and the other one to the front crossbars to secure the kayak; spacing then will depend on where your crossbars are already installed. It fits most standard factory and aftermarket crossbars. The cradles will then hold your kayak on its side, fitting a kayak up to 36" wide at its beam and up to 75 lbs in weight. So as long as it is no wider than 36" and not heavier than 75 pounds, the length should be fine, you would just be placing the kayak in the cradles so that it is evenly distributed in length front to back of your vehicle.
 
Q:
Can I use this rack to safely carry my canoe?
 
A:
This Hull-a-Port is not recommended for transporting a canoe.  It can transport kayaks on their side, but is not intended or manufactured to hold a canoe.  The Portage, seen here:  https://www.storeyourboard.com/canoe-roof-rack-thule-portage/, is a good choice for transporting canoes, and manufactured for that.  
 
Q:
I have 2004 Toyota Sport Edition 4 Runner and want to put two Kayaks on my roof rack that has both two vertical and two horizontal bars, will the Thule port pro work on my vehicle?
 
A:
Yes, according to the manufacturer's fit guide, this kayak rack works with factory installed crossbars on the 2004 Toyota 4 Runner.  Note, in their list of models/makes, they don't have a separate entry for the Sports Edition - only as a 2004 Toyota 4 Runner 4 door SUV.   You would need to attach the rack to those horizontal crossbars on your roof top.  It doesn't work for the railings on the side, it needs to go on the crossbars.... but it should attach to them per the fit guide.
