I've been thinking more and more about having a cargo carrier on my CRX so I can haul my canoe for fishing and camping season.

Anyone have one?
What's the weight limit on them?

my thule setup is fine.

i got it out of the neighbors trash, keys and ski/board holder and everything.

i got a surfboard rack too. works fine, even with the short roof line. just becareful of opening the hatch as it can hit the glass at full extension.

got any pics of how it mounts?

The one you're using, was it originally for the crx or are they all sorta universal?

Any idea what the max weight is? My 13' fiberglass canoe is kinda heavy...

What kind of canoe do you have? What's the size. I once (once!) considered using my CRX to haul my 16' Coleman lake canoe, until I saw how absurd (and dangerous) it looked on top.

I simply used the foam mounts that attach to the canoe rails whereby the canoe simply sits on the roof of the car without a rack.

Thus, another reasopn I'm mad about my jeep. :evil: Thanks for mentioning canoe-toting!
If you'd buy more than the flower painted hand tools at the dollar store you could fix your own Jeep easy... :lol:

It's a 15-18' Mowhawk fiberglass. I've never measured it. Beyond that I have no idea. It's my grandparents and I take it whenever I want. They don't use it anymore so the only TLC it gets is a waxing once a year and a wash when I take it out. They want me to buy it, and I probably will this summer. I'll sell it and get the 13' flat back I want so I can put a trolling motor on it for fishing.

I don't have the foam rail covers for it. I also would want it on some sort of rack so it wont slide side to side. Just tossing it on the roof doesn't seem safe enough for me.
