Considering buying a Model X (or a Model Y). I need tow capacity (Model X wins) and roof rack (Model Y kinda wins). I need to cartop rowing shells (boats - like kayaks but longer and skinnier) on the roof rack. Has anyone used the SeaSucker racks on a Model X? Any problems? Thanks!

After driving both the X and the Y, I decided I just like the smaller size of the Y and so bought one of those (with Tesla roof rack). Managed to get my 1x rack mounted but haven’t used it for real yet. I still think the SeaSucker rack had some promise, if I bought an X I would give it a try. Carefully the first time. :)

i've had a few friends with SeaSuckers on their cars and have had no issues with them. my only concern on the X would be dropping something on the glass roof/windshield. big bucks. I can barely clean the roof of the car without standing up inside the vehicle. no idea how you plan on loading/unloading anything big!

I have used seasucker racks to haul surf boards often and decking boards once. As a precaution, I also use bungee cords through the side windows... just in case. Since the weight is entirely on glass and the FWD, I keep my speed down and don't go above 40mph. But they do the job. No issues.
