Thumbs down Kayak

I would like to put some kind of a rack on my popup for 2 kayaks. Any ideas?

I've seen kayaks mounted to cars, trucks, vans, PUPs, TT's, RVs, and almost any other kind of vehicles with these racks: SportRack Standard Block Island Foam-Block-Style Kayak Carrier - Roof Mount - 12" Long SportRack Watersport Carriers ABR525

I have three Thule kayak racks on my pick-up, but when I am going fishing by myself, I'll usually just throw one 'yak on top of my Jeep with a set of the foam racks. They work great!

I strongly recommend onto the vehicle as you can use it when you're not camping and if you have to drive to the boat launch. Generally with a pop-up, clearance isn't an issue if you have longer boats.

As well, you just never know how the roof is going to take the extra holes and weight.

But- if you do go that route, Thule makes mounts that permanently attach to vehicles that you screw/bolt into place and then there are risers that click in and out of place. Their stuff is expensive, but top notch.

I put mine on top of my HW277 a couple of times with Yakima foam racks but decided to put them on the car instead so I don't have to load/unload them from the camper when I get to the campsite. One less thing to do right when I get there.
