Kayak rack?

We have a new Rockwood A122S hard-sided pop-up. I am wondering whether a rack for carrying lightweight kayaks (38-45 lbs) could be placed on the longer section of the camper's roof. I can see where a rack might be attached by straps to the bottom of the side edge of that roof. I know that they would have to be removed to raise the roof, but that would not be a big deal. Does anyone have any ideas as to whether this could be done? Any potential problems I am not aware of?

Hello and welcome, yes, thatís my kayak rack havenít had any problems with it. The SPORTS RACK was installed by the Forest River Dealer where I purchased my A Frame the HULLY ROLLERS were placed on at home with a little adjustment to the way they clamped on to the rack. My fiberglass boat weighs 43 pounds and has been riding on top the camper since 2012 on short trips and long ones. Like I said there have been no issues mechanical or warranty no regrets about having it installed.

Just "click" on his avatar (the small picture) under his name on the left side of his response and you will open a new window. That will provide you with ways to directly contact him, via Private Message, and access his photo albums.

I bought a sport rack crossbar system and had my dealer bolt on the ends. when I an going to carry my kayaks I put the cross bars on and attach my J style kayak carrier to the bars and throw on the kayaks and strap them down. It is a very simple and quick method. I take the crossbars off when not using but you can use them to tie anything else on.

Thanks Ssenge1. What you propose sounds similar to what "Cattledog" had installed on his rig. That's probably what I'm going to do.

I looked at lots of ways to get my kayaks on my FR 3 and settled on a 07 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited with Gobi roof rack. Two big kayaks will go real nice up there!
