F150 and 2 kayaks

I'm looking for the best way to transport 2 kayaks (11ft) inside my F150 pickup. My truck bed is 7 1/2 ft so if I simply lay the kayaks on the bed they will extend 3 1/2 ft out the back. Is there a simply rack system? Do I put the kayaks on the tailgate and extend over the truck cab?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
Hank

Most people that haul 1 kayak use this. You may have to modify it for 2.

if you are not towing anything I don't see the issue. a simple ratchet strap with the tail gate down for the extra length and you are good to go. are we talking about hooked up?

Sorry, I forgot to mention I'm towing a 23ft Rockwood 2304KS.

Go to a sporting goods store and buy a tandem kayak roof rack. There are many styles. Amazon is your friend. You have two threads going. Ask one of the mods to combine them.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

I don't think you're going to be able to carry them inside your truck bed and tow a trailer at the same time. I have a Chevy Silverado with a 6.5 foot bed, and was forced to buy one of these, in order to transport the kayaks on the roof. They're a bit pricey, but of good quality.

I take two kayaks or a canoe and a kayak on the truck with the trailer often.

I bought a ladder rack for the truck and 'J' style kayak carriers that mount on the ladder rack...

Is that what you mean?

This is how I transport 2 ten foot kayaks with my 6'5" bed Silverado. Your kayaks are a foot longer, but so is your truck bed. We nose them in and ratchet down the fronts and the rears sit on the raised tailgate and are ratcheted to the receiver hooks.

This is my setup. It still gives me the whole truck bed for other items we take along.
