The problem we see with putting Kayaks on the motor home is, if you are lucky enough to be able to launch where you camp, great. If you need to launch from another spot, then you have to move the motorhome. Not so great.

You can purchase a modular kayak. I bought one from REI. They break in half and so easy to transport.

I am also thinking of an inflatable, may I ask what you chose and why? Do you use it as a one person or 2?

Thanks!

Which model Sea Eagle did you choose?

The inflatable is nice, until it deflates on you out in the water. Friends of ours had that experience when the valve malfunctioned a mile from camp. By the time we got back, it was barely floating with the two of them in it.

We have the Sea Eagle 370: http://www.amazon.com/Sea-Eagle-SE37...=sea+eagle+370
Quite satisfied with it. Added a 12 volt inflater (Coleman, I think). Easy set up. No issues yet. Have to pay attention to drying it off before putting it away (we towel it off). Hose off with fresh water and towel dry after salt water use. Rides in the basement of the MH on most trips. Like the two person format - we take leisurely sight seeing paddles on flat waters. Fairly roomy kayak for that purpose.

kayak racks not suitable for TT bumper mounted 2" receiver. Receiver must be welded to frame of TT. to overcome torque.

Here's how I carry an 18' Hobie tri-maran kayak without interfering with my fiver. Front receiver hitch, with a tilt-down crossbar with rollers. Works like a champ!

We also just purchased a sea eagle 370 and so far I really like the boat. I bought it so that my wife and I could go paddling and I can also out of it, it is very compact and fits in its own bag.
