We had 30 ft class A and set up mounts for kayaks on top, carried them all over but found that we didn't use them much because of the hassle of getting them off. Then got a light kayak trailer, light enough that I can lift it when empty, and find that we use the kayaks all the time because its so easy to mount and take loose

I've seen several set-ups for 5'ers that have a front bumper rack, and a canoe or kayak running from the front bumper to the truck roof.

I also hall kayaks around, the big 14' double goes ontop of the TV and a small kids 7' goes on the TT's bed for long haul. I love being able to hall both kayaks to any location with the TV(7' slides inside our Yukon). We have been able to get to some very beautiful out of the way places many will never see.
I did build a small dolly for the 14' kayak that allows me to walk it into the water with gear and even the smaller Kayak on top. Many of these dollies are on the web, I just had some tubing and tires laying around, I would recomend one.

The other day I watch a nieghbor put a 14' kayak in their TT by using the area of a pop-out to pivit it in.

Toys are fun but just bring more work.

Yep, under the 5th Wheel. They were mounted beneath the holding tanks. They weren't canoes, but kayaks, which are a lower profile than a canoe.

from the RV tip guy

QUICK TIP
Be careful storing things on a roof ladder
If your RV is equipped with a roof access ladder it's always a temptation to use it to store extra stuff on. Not a bad idea, just make sure that whatever you hang on the ladder doesn't obstruct your tail lights. Drivers behind you can unwittingly get a bit too close if they don't see your intentions clearly signaled.
