    What tailgate pad is that? Let's see it hold some cargo...

    As promised... Bike. I removed the rear third crossbar because it was a PITA to get the bike in and out with it on. We sometimes do some canoe/kayak trips so I'll reserve the third bar for kayaks and then just use the two over the cab for canoes.

    We are able to carry the bikes like that with the shell on. We put the back tire in and just roll them in as we close the tailgate. It works pretty good.

    An update, I hate the rack and am getting rid of it. Way too much noise from the wind.

    Did you say what you plan to carry? Noise is huge for me so aero bars were a requirement.

    The shell hung from the rack for 24 hours. It worked fine.

    I don't think I did. Canoes and Kayaks. I have a Disco 169 so something like that and maybe a Wally World special kayak or two.

    My Inno bars have a wind break in front that omits wind noise. Maybe other cross bars have similar options.

    If I wasn't already pulling a trailer I would just build up a little PWC trailer. The polaris personal water craft from the 90's were particularly prone for being junk. There has to be tons of little trailers around that can handle 300-400 pounds. It would make life way easier if you can go that route. There is no way I would do a roof setup if there was another option. My boat weighs 75-80#s and is 12ft. A 9ft boat that weighed 40#s would be a different story.

    I bet a lot of your whistle is coming from the bars not having the inserts. I bet if you sealed them up it would help. I have the same rack with the aero bars. I did not notice a noise change on the highway.

    I have no personal experience but have read to wrap a couple of bungy cords around the rails and the noise drops dramatically. Something about breaking up the way the air travels in and around the rails...

    Seems crazy but I’ll give it a shot on my C30; though the noise isn’t bad.

    Probably won’t help but it may be worth a shot.

    I tried taping up all the openings, still whistles. I cut some foam pipe insulation and taped it to the leading outside edges and it helped some. I made a cardboard fairing & that helped a lot, but I haven't fabricated a real one yet and the pre-made ones are way too expensive. Easy to take the bars off when not in use.

    Exactly. My bars are for carrying boats. When I am not doing that I take them off. 4 minutes at the most to take them off.
