Taking your boat along with travel trailer.

Does anybody take your boat with you when pulling a travel trailer. We have a small jon boat that I would like to take along camping with us. I was looking into a boat truck rack (self loader). Has anybody every used one.

That's pretty cool, great job on the build.

I was looking at one to where the boat flipped over and set flat on a rack.

That was pretty cool video. I wonder if the boat would help deflect some wind, thus improving on mpg.

With my canoe on top, it is the other way around......I loose mileage.
