I have been researching this topic. Weight capacity may be the issue.
I need to confirm, but what I have read online so far says that the weight capacity of the factory crossbars is 100 pounds...and the capacity of the Thule Rack is 150.
So if that is the case you can really only carry one Brit style sea kayak on the factory rack, but could manage two on the Thule rack.
That might be a deciding factor for me.
