We have two 13' Wilderness System Manteo 'yaks that we used to take on all of our trips when we had the bumper pull. It wasn't until after the 5th wheel was delivered that I remembered that the bed of the truck would now be full of trailer - no more kayaks!

I bought a pair of Oru folding kayaks, which I can toss in the basement or the bed of the truck.

I have a CC F350(in sig) and needed ways to carry our new kayaks. After all of the searching, this is the best we came up with. A hitch on the front of the truck and either the Thule Goal Post Rack with a set of roof racks or a Rhino T-Loader rack with roof racks. Like these.

Yes, I thought about that but mine is just too long. (5 ft. overhang in front of the truck)

Not sure if Thule has a solution for you but I just bought their Aeroblade roof rack system through AutoAnything and saved 20%, no shipping and no taxes either!

I'll check it out but realistically I think the only way I can come close to a solution is to somehow put it on the roof of the 5th wheel.

I Hope you figure out a solution for this. It would eat me up to not be able to use something that I worked so hard at in order to enjoy something, only to be stuck in the deliema that you are in. As much as we would of loved to of gotten a fifthwheel, that is the main reason that I didn't want one. I just could not come to terms of giving up the back of my truck or the top of the cab and cap.
