Calling All Kayakers!

Just purchased a new Class C and wondering how folks travel with kayaks.

Does anyone have mods or racks to take their yaks on the road? Pictures would be awesome!

Best way I think is a verticle rack, plugged into the rear hitch. Height limit on your kayas would be approx. 10ft. depending on how high they pop above the roof/AC unit to limit air drag. I'd be curious if others carry their kayaks that way and see pictures as well. There is a company that sells that style, but they are way up there in price.

We bought a snapontop kayak at Dicks sporting goods. They break down into two pieces for a single and three pieces for a tandem. They load easily into pickup bed or small car. I recommend the single. Tandem kayaks are occasionally referred to as divorce kayaks.

I want a Oru:

If you pull a car, on top of that is the best place for them.

I have a Jackson Big Tuna tandem for ocean fishing and to take the grandson out, as for traveling with it , I haven't so far. Due to it being 14 ft and 100 lbs it rides on the wife's Subaru. If we aren't going to travel with the subi I will build a rack on top of my truck to haul it one that goes over the hood to the front bumper.if you have a MH and no tow car get or make a trailer.

Our way around that problem was to go for a toy hauler, all 4 kayaks and 5 bikes fit inside nicely.

We have a Sea Eagle 370 and LOVE that we can just deflate it, roll it up and store it under the dining room seat.
