Kayaking and canoeing are big recreational pastimes in Texas. Considering the many rivers and secure inland paddling trails across Texas, it’s easy to see why kayaking is one of the many reasons adventurous travelers flock to the Lone Star State. And needless to say, Texas residents love paddling along our state’s many water inlets, too.

The Red River below Lake Texoma is one of the most popular kayaking and canoe destinations in the state, and the latest inland trail to open is the seven-mile Lake Bayou trail at Collier’s Ferry Park.

Unless you have access to a nearby dockyard, harbor or marina, most likely you’ll be towing your watercraft with your motor vehicle. The most convenient way to tote your kayak or canoe without a trailer hitch is with a Chevy truck bed kayak/canoe rack or a kayak/canoe roof rack.

Sherman Chevrolet offers roof racks and roof rack systems for many Chevrolet vehicles. Among our OEM parts and accessories for sale in Sherman are the Chevrolet Colorado roof rack, kayak and canoe racks that fit comfortably in a Chevy Colorado truck bed, and the Chevy Silverado roof rack system.

At Sherman Chevrolet, you can find plenty of kayak and canoe rack options for the Silverado, Sonic, Spectrum, Tahoe, Trax, Suburban and other Chevy models, with the exception of convertible vehicles.

Outside Pursuits recently ranked the best 10 kayak roof racks. Of the racks listed, these three Editors’ Picks are currently available at our dealership:

Thule Hullavator Pro Carrier
Yakima JayLow Floating J-Cradle
Malone Universal Inflatable HandiRack

​A roof or truck bed kayak/canoe carrier transforms your Chevrolet into an RV for an adventurous waterfront outing. If you doubt a kayak/canoe rack would complement the graceful Chevy sedan, check out the roof carriers mounted to the Cruze, Impala or Malibu. Breathtakingly sporty and cool-looking, a sedan kayak/canoe carrier makes you feel ready to hit the beach or lakeside resorts such as Cooper Lake and Lake Texoma. If you don’t own a kayak or canoe, Lake Texoma has several places where you can rent one.

Choosing the rack that’s right for your vehicle and watercraft is essential. For advice on kayak and canoe gear and safe paddling, read articles from reliable sources such as REI Co-op. Whenever you’re in the mood to paddle and need a sturdy and stylish rack for kayak or canoe storage, contact Sherman Chevrolet or order through our Parts and Services Order Form.
