Canoe Rack Information

Canoe Racks are a must when carrying a canoe on your vehicle. You won't run the risk of ruining your car or your canoe, and with the innovative products to help you load, unload, and most importantly secure your boat getting in the water and enjoying your day will be a breeze.

Roof Mounted Canoe Racks REQUIRE that you already have a roof rack system in place, either from the manufacturer of your vehicle, or if your vehicle roof is bare, find a roof rack fit for your specific vehicle. To see what multipurpose base roof rack system options are available for your vehicle, check one of our Automated Roof Rack Fit Guides. Roof Mounted Canoe Racks have padded cradles/brackets that provide maximum stability for the boat, plus added safeguard for the gunwales.

For vehicles that do not have a long enough roofline to support a canoe rack, Hitch Mount Canoe Racks create a rear mounted load bar on vehicles equipped with a two inch hitch receiver. Their telescopic design makes height adjustment easy, and the hitch stats tightly secured with an anti-wobble feature. To complete the system, you are also required to purchase a set of Canoe Brackets mentioned above as this simply comes with the bar on which to attach them. Hitch Mount Canoe Racks are the perfect solution if you have a pick-up truck.

When transporting canoes, always secure the bow and stern to your vehicle with tie down straps to ensure your boat stays stationary.
