Have no clue. All rubber and no ladder on TT. This unit is 11 ft tall so prob. Not a good idea to make it any higher.

I'm sorry I did`t get a picture, but a few weeks ago I saw a 5th wheel rig with 2 kayaks strapped to the bottom of the camper.

That's my thought. I will investigate the clearance maybe my only option.

Two concerns that I noticed; anchor points for straps and the inability to traverse uneven ground because of the limited clearance.

Well, this is probably not helpful to you. I'm guessing you already have your equipment and are looking for a solution.

But for others, here was our solution

I think the TV is the best option if you have a full cab. We have a Honda Rideline and just put the racks on the cab with straps on the bar and tie downs front and back for safety. We have hauled our 16' canoe and 2 16' kayaks on a Thule rack. It has worked well for us and lets us get the boats to the water once we are unhooked. Now that we have moved to th class A, the boats will need to go on the toad.

I suggetsed and inflarable as mentioned, but my wife would rather have HER kayak.
