I want to move two strip canoes 500 miles...
I want to move two strip canoes 500 miles on a Mercedes Benz R350 will this rack work??
Chet, yeah these will work fine but only work on the square Thule cross bars, so you will need that system as these slide over the square bar and then are basically an overlapping strapping system...
Canoes Look Funny on a Civic
This is one heck of a simple rack. It works great on my freight hauler of a Grumman, and also works on my sleek little Wenonah. They're adjustable in seconds, to fit the gunwales of the boat you want to load. I've also used them for carryin logs from my woodlot home. If you want to get some strange looks while driving down the road just use the included straps to load up a couple of trees to your rack! I digress.. If you want a simple way to secure your boats to your rack, this is the ticket. The ratcheting straps aren't actually ratcheting though, they just cinch down tight, and require you to press the release trigger to let slack back through the "ratchet" I would also recommend getting the bow/stern tie downs, as a little extra security is never a bad thing.
Will the Thule Canoe Carrier fit the roof...
Will the Thule Canoe Carrier fit the roof racks on my Honda Pilot? I am still not sure how this carrier works.
Ok so Ricky if you have a 03-05 model that doesn't have factory rails you are outta luck. However, if that is not your situation then set yourself up with our rack configurator and go from there.
This works by having 4 pieces 2 up front, 2 in back that have ratcheting straps to secure it. Hopefully that shines some light on it for you.

Write your question here...Need a one person carrier to load 58 lb canoe onto SUV. Can one person load this?
This rack isn't going to make loading any easier to load. It's designed to hold the canoe in place once it's on top of the SUV. The ability for one person to load a canoe on top of a SUV depends on the weight of the boat, strength of the person and vehicle height. If you are able to place the boat on top of the SUV, then one person will be able to operate the straps to tie it down.
As the description states, consider the Thule Outrigger, for additional help loading a boat.

Does this attach to factory roof racks

Is this the 579 or the 579xt
I bought these to secure a canoe to my Thule roof rack. It has worked great as there are four supports that latches on the the racks that prevents the canoes from moving. The straps are also multipurpose, so when not using the canoe you can use it for other things to secure onto the roof rack.
Can the Thule racks be installed if there...
Can the Thule racks be installed if there is no rain gutter?
I would tell you what I told the other guy- You need to check the fit guide on Thule's site to really know. http://thuleracks.com/fg_vehicle.aspThey have setups for virtually ever vehicle out there, so fear not.
Used for ladders. Daily. Very good product. I use the tie downs for holding trailer loads.

So I take it this works with factory racks, speciically a 2001 Nissan Pathinder?
I withdraw the question. The Thule site says it only works with Thule bars. Can anyone recommend cradles that work with aero bars?
Makes canoe trips easier
The shoes not only keep the canoe from shifting, but keep a great reference point for balancing the canoe back on top. The straps that come with the kit are awesome - quick tie down ratchets that work with a single touch. A lot of thought and experience went into the design of this system. If I ever find myself having to tie a boat down the old fashioned way, I'll be sorely disappointed.
If you have a canoe, this is money well spent.
This canoe carrier was exactly what I expected. Thule makes great stuff and this just adds to the list.
