LR5 roof rack issues

Just got Thule Podium and Aeroblade crossbar setup for my 2018 LR5. If I put a canoe or long kayak on, tailgate door will only open 10-20% before the air dam on the door hits the boat. Any suggestions other than removing the boat every time I want to open the tailgate? The crossbars would have to be raised quite high to allow clearance.

Had this same issue on the LR4 and the rear piece there was a lot smaller than the new Disco.
Short of removing the rear air dam or spoiler or whatever it is... Nope, nothing you can do to get around it.
I used to put my canoe more towards the front so it would pivot forward as I opened the trunk.
Let us know if you come up with something though.
