    Anyone using/planning to use kayak carrier attachments with the Whispbar? I had asked them and they said Kayak carriers WB-400 and WB-401 will be available starting early May (not sure what the difference is between 400 and 401). Both seem to be only able to carry ONE kayak which is a bit of a bummer. I would've thought with the width of the Model S carrying two should not be an issue?

    That would've been great but doesn't look like it - from the description: "The WB400 J-Cradle Kayak Carriers carry one boat up to 80 lbs."

    Did you guys purchase the Whispbar from Tesla at $519 or from somewhere else cheaper?

    Have not actually purchased yet -- waiting to see if a two kayak solution exists and will work.

    Each carrier carries one boat. But you can fit two on a car. 9e8amene.jpg
