    Default Canoe rack for Crew Cab with topper?

    Anyone know of a good rack system to carry a 16.5' canoe?

    I have a 2009 Silverado Crew Cab with a topper on the 5.75' bed. I'm thinking I need a rail above the cab and one on the topper. The trouble is, there is little or nothing out there for cab-top racks.

    I was hoping for availability of Yakima type rack and removeable towers atop the cab, but they only offer the type that attaches to rain gutters...which the Silverado does not have.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mudflaps

    Check out Thule, that's what my dad uses on his topper to haul long stuff and a cargo carrier, and they make a lot of adapters.

    I've seen one that is a pair of padded bases w/ a raised rod, it uses a tarp strap thru the door openings . pickupspecialties.com has it in the roof rack secion called turborack. Looks like it could be adapted to fit one on the toppertoo w/ trap straps down to the wheel well edge...Cost is $49.95 for one

    Thanks for the lead. It looks like that may be an inexpensive solution.

    I wonder, though, if the strap through the window secured tightly will damage the seal...
