We spent close to $1,000 for a Yakima 2 kayak setup.

Parts included "landing pads", "control towers"(lockable), rails, "Hullyrollers" (in the rear) , crossbars.

That is a solid setup for carrying 2 ocean kayaks (18 feet each) on a Grand Caravan.

The Hullyrollers make loading/unloading real quick and easy. Just remember to lubricate the inside of the rollers at least once a year.

Once the kayaks are strapped to the racks you still need loosely tied front and rear tie lines. The tie lines do not hold the kayak to the rack. Their purpose is to keep things in place if you have a catastrophic failure (rear ended, etc.). More than one person has seen their kayaks and rack flying away in the rear view mirror while cruising down the highway. Tie lines prevent that.

One last tip: NEVER leave strap ends or tie down line dangling from the rack. If they get caught under a tire you will hear a loud crack as your kayaks bust into pieces.

I'm planning to buy a kayak but I'm not sure that I'll be able to transport it on top of my car, is there a roof rack that is specially made for kayaks?

There are special roof racks that you can get for transporting a kayak. You are going to want to get a specially made roof rack because they have pads and are shaped in such a way that will protect both your kayak and car from getting scratched up.

Enjoy your kayaking!

The rack on the back crossbar is tilted so much that the kayak doesn't sit flat and actually is dented by the rack.

Move the rear bar toward the front one. As long as the minimum distance is there, and the kayak can be secured, you should be fine as long as your front and rear tie downs are secure.
