Paddle board and surf board

How do you carry these items. They are to long for the underneath storage and you can't attach to the roof. Any suggestions

Paddle boarding is the next thing I want to try. I don't have one, but I have seen them strapped to racks on top of the TV. I have also seen them strapped to the roof ladder on the back of 5vers (not sure how safe that is).

There's an Open Range that has storage under the rear that has room to slide a kayak or paddle or surf board.

With our old fiver (Montana Mounteneer) we carried 2 kayaks on the inside. With the slides in, it held them in perfectly. With our new Columbus, we now carry them on the rear rack with some customized iron-works to help secure them vertically.

SUP racks

I also have a 5th and a 2006 F250. There are 2 bussinesses that will make racks for your truck roof or the back of your rv. and
I had usracks make mine and it works great. I now have a new 5th and have to reduce my pin weight a bit so I will be getting one from rvkayakracks, which also accommodate SUPs and bicycles.

We purchased a SUP that is inflatable. Wife uses it all the time and has nothing but good things to say about it. It is not like a water float but much better built...Much easier to store also. As for a kayak...I have no experience with that...

We carry two kayaks on the trucks roof with a Yakima roof rack and J saddles. Works great and out of the way.
