We carry a Mad River 14' canoe on top of the TV with a home made rear rack in the bed of the truck. The canoe weighs 100 lbs with all the additions I've added, but is easy to mount and off load. It's the flipping it upside down that takes finesse. Carry a small trolling motor as I'm too old to paddle far.lol A small bat runs it for two long days.

Our 10 ft boats (2 of them) fit nicely in the back of the 150. Just enough clearance to turn and the Yeti still fits too. Now if winter would just go away...

+1 for Sea Eagle products. I own 3 different products from them and they are high quality.

Yep, Sea Eagle is wonderful. Easy to use, store, setup. Not a racing machine but I really do not care.

Calling All Kayakers!

What Sea Eagle products do you guys have? I have been browsing them for about a year can't decide between kayak or one of the small motor mounts. We just want to tool around the lakes and rivers sightseeing, any suggestions? Glad to read about someone who owns one we were curious about durability etc. they look really easy to set up.

Looking through older posts about kayak's and this is what I did.
Went through all the research on attaching to back of RV, top of RV, building one out of wood for bed of truck and on and on.
Best option by FAR for me is the TracRac. Solid, secure and easy 10 min install when needed. Got mine on Craigslist for $150.
Don't have any pic's of mine but this is what they look like.

We solved the problem by purchasing an inflatable 2 person kayak. Sevylor Colorado. Works great. 40 pounds. Take it anywhere.

Ours is the 370 mentioned above. It says it seats 3 but wellll. It rolls up and fits in one of the basement compartments of the GT. Comes with everything you need except the PFDs. We could carry our kayaks or our canoe on the toad but I didn't want them further extending our overall length.

Hopefully we will get it wet in the Snake River next week depending on water conditions.
