I just recently bought a kayak, and do not have a rack for my roof yet. I have the two standard bars on the top of my roof going lengh-wise, but I don't have the cross bars. So I first need to get those. I'm wondering if I can purshace them at any GMC dealer?

I tried looking at www.thule.com to find out the appropriate type of kayak rack for the acadia, but although the acadia is listed in the drop down menu, it says there is no specific mounting rack at this time.

What are other people using?? What should I do?

Thanks,

Leslie

I saw something real simple to make once you get the cross-bars. My friend fabricated two pieces of foam rubber contoured to the boat bottom and has a slit cut to slip over each of her Subaru's crossbars. She then ties the boat to each cross-bar with an adjustable strap and secures the ends to the vehicle's frame, also with adjustable straps. A pad is inserted between the end straps and car body anywhere the strap touches a painted surface. It seems to work ok.
