Kayak Roof-Top Transport - Without factory installed Rails?

Hi Folks,

I have a bit of a dilemma. I have received two kayaks as a gift; however I have absolutely no way of getting them to the water! I will tell you that I drive a Toyota Corolla, and I don’t have any factory bars installed.

Can anyone point me the right direction (besides buying a truck) of how I can get two single-person kayaks down to the water at Highway speeds? I am willing to clunk some money down to get some factory installed rails on my roof, but I just do know the best place to start.

Thanks!

You might want to try calling Austin Canoe & Kayak. They have a location in Austin & San Marcos.

Yakima and Thule are the 2 best rack systems available for carrying anything from bikes, surfboards, kayaks, even enclosed carriers for general luggage. It's hard to pick between the two and if you ask people which is better it's kind of like asking a Ford or Chevy diehard which is better.

This may be helpful for you, although you would still need Thule racks. (Not mine, I just saw it after reading your post.)
