Hello! New member here! I'm selling my bass boat and getting ready to purchase either a hobie outback or a pro angler to try something new! I just bought a 2014 Toyota Prius and would really like some help on which roof rack i should purchase to be able to haul either one of them? I'd like to do it right the first time, so what is the best system would you guys would recommend? I'll also be installing a hitch on it to pull a trailer but would like to be able to put it on the roof when needed! Thanks

If no one here has had the experience... I would contact the Car Dealer for suggestions and then a rack company.

Thule

Rhino Rack

Yakima

Contacted Thule today and they said that they could recommend a rack but couldn't recommend a kayak holder for a pro angler because their maximum weight limit is 80 pounds! I've seen some pics of hobies on car tops, so what holders are you guys using that would work with them? Thanks

Rack capacity or their kayak holder?

Found this thread by Googling: https://priuschat.com/threads/maximum-weight-on-prius-roof.69582/

The Thule saddles will hold your PA easily if your car roof will support the rack system. 8)

I have a 2005 Prius and have had a Saris rack with saddles for my PA on my Prius since 2009. Don't know if they make the saddles anymore but you can check ebay
