The Thule 830 Stacker kayak rack carries up to four kayaks and is the most efficient way to carry multiple kayaks. The Stacker can be mounted directly to both Thule AeroBlade bars and square load bars, Thule Xsporter pickup truck rack, Inno Racks cross bars, Whispbar, Yakima round cross bars and virtually all factory installed roof racks with cross bars. A superb solution for efficiently transporting multiple kayaks. Uses up less crossbar space than other kayak rack styles, allowing you also to carry multiple kayaks along side other gear carriers. The pair of Thule 830 kayak stacker uprights can also fold down when not in use. This offers increased aerodynamics and a nice clean look.
Four kayak maximum capacity.
Tying boats down is now easier than ever with the upper bridge design.
Allows for super easy kayak carrier transfer from vehicle to vehicle with proven universal hardware (all included).
For a clean look when not in use, the Thule 830 "The Stacker" folds down flat.
The Thule 830 Stacker also includes one pair of Thule Quick Draw tie-downs, one pair of Thule 15 ft. Heavy Duty Load Straps and Buckle Bumpers.
The included pair of Thule Load Straps will secure two kayaks. Order a second pair for additional kayaks (see accessory add-ons below).
The included a pair of Thule 855 Quickdraw ratcheting tie down straps secures one kayak bow and stern. Order additional 855 Quickdraw straps (see accessory add-ons below) for safe transport of additional kayaks.
The 830 Stacker kayak carrier attaches directly to both Thule AeroBlade bars and square load bars, Inno Racks cross bars, Whispbar, Yakima round bars and virtually all factory roof rack cross bar systems.
For complete boat protection, we recommend using this kayak rack in combination with Thule bar pads (not included; see accessory add-ons below).
We highly recommend the Inno Racks INA451 Cradle Set (not included; see accessory add-ons below) for easy loading of kayaks onto kayak stacker style kayak racks. The Inno INA451 prevents each kayak from sliding down and holds it upright & in place when loading.

this 830 Thule Stacker kayak rack review by Kevin vehicle year/make/model: 2006 Ford F150 4DR Super Crew Cab pickup truck item(s) transported: One Pelican tandem kayak
The Stacker was easy to install and securing the kayak was even easier. Kayak remained secure during transportation. Very simple to install and use. Next purchase will be stoppers to make things even better.
This Kayak Stacker is the BEST!
this Thule 830 Stacker kayak rack review by Grant vehicle year/make/model: 1998 Ford Expedition item(s) transported: 2 Old Town single kayaks
I purchased the Kayak Stacker to transport two Old Town kayaks. I wanted a unit that did a good job and wasn't a pain to use or to store. Thule Racks did a good job with this design; it's easy to install and works well for my application and needs. The unit is sturdy enough and performs the task easily. I heartily recommend this unit.
Great Service, Great Products
this Thule 830 Stacker kayak rack review by H.M.W. vehicle year/make/model: 2011 Toyota Tundra item(s) transported: kayaks
(PLEASE NOTE: Customer is also reviewing the Thule 422XT Xsporter truck rack in this review.) I purchased a Thule 422XT and 830 Stacker for my 2011 Tundra. I called ORS Racks Direct for a little help and got great service. Got unit together in no time. You really need to use the weather stripping for noise. Black duct tape works well when temp gets hot and rubber falls out. The 830 Stacker works well. My next purchase is for the cradle set to hold each kayak when loading 4 kayaks, very hard to install 2 to a side without cradles to hold the kayaks in place. I would recommend this set up to anyone who is looking to haul kayaks around without losing bed space.
ORS Racks Direct crew says - This carrier works on oversize, large-diameter factory rack crossbars such as the Nissan XTerra, as well as the TracRac truck racks and van racks, however you will also need to use the Thule Xadapt 3 Kit (includes 80mm long bolts) to properly mount it to the Nissan XTerra factory rack bars.
M. Higgins asks - Can I get three kayaks on the factory rack cross bars of my 2007 Subaru Outback wagon using the 830?
ORS Crew answers - Yes, you are exactly right to choose the 830 Kayak Stacker. It'll easily hold your 3 kayaks upright on their sides stacked next each other, and the 2007 Subaru Outback factory crossbars will provide enough room for all 3 kayaks.
