Thule 887XT Slipstream Reviews


bythetualatinrated this item 5 out of 5 on 9/10/2012:

I am just under 5'6" tall and not brawny and the Thule slipstream rack enables me to load and unload my 45 lb., 15 ft. glass kayak alone. For single women, this allows you take your boat out for a paddle without waiting for a partner! I also use proper ratcheting, padded tie-down straps for the body and ends of the boat rather than any hardware store products. My car and boat are protected.

Geobay Girlrated this item 5 out of 5 on 7/9/2009:

Because of the spoiler on the back of my car (and because I can't lift 55pounds of boat over my head) my usual method of resting my boat against the top, back of my hatch and sliding my boat on my towel onto my racks was not going to work (used to own a minivan). This rack is perfect. I can slide the boat up onto the racks with no fear that any part of my car is being scratched. And because I couldn't find this information ANYWHERE, if you have Thule or Yakima crossbars, you SHOULD be able to load a second kayak beside your slipstream.


Thule 887XT Slipstream Questions


Chris asked on 2/11/2013:

Vehicle: 2012 Honda Pilot
Will the Thule Slipstream attach to the factory crossbars on the 2012 Honda Pilot, or do I need Thule crossbars?


The Slipstream attaches to your factory installed crossbars.

LAW asked on 7/17/2012:

Vehicle: 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon
Will the Thule 887XT Slipstream work on our 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon that has the factory crossbar rack? We would be using it with an Old Town Tandem Kayak.

Thank you.


Yes, the Slipstream will attach to the Subaru factory bars.

Thanks again,
