Oh wow, look at that! I didn't know that existed!

The next question to be asked is, how high should you go? I thought our solar system was way up there, but it's got nothing on those things.

Anything over 14 feet tall is considered oversized on Federal highways, so keep the total height— with kayaks in place— below that. And measure how tall the van is with kayaks in place so you can post a "Minimum Clearance XX feet xx inches" sign directly on your dashboard so you can see it as a reminder for tunnels and underpasses.

Rac-n-Roll Trailer

We have a Rac-n-Roll trailer - I believe they are now owned by Yakima - which accepts either the round Yakima or square Thule crossbars and then you add whatever bike or kayak carrying options you need.

We use it to carry 4 bikes, 4 kayaks, or any combination of bikes and kayaks as needed.

Here is a picture of it with the 4 bikes - pulled from Long Island to Jeklyll Island in southeastern Georgia round trip with no issues.

I am looking for a picture with the kayaks loaded and if I can locate can post if interested.

I have sea kayaks about 18 ft long. I bought a trailer from trailex trailers in ohio. Very light tows easy. I tore a rotator cuff loading them on our jeep. The trailer was the best thing i bought for them. I mounted a tool box on it to carry my paddles and life vest. When i want to go kayaking it takes 5 minutes tops to hook up and i'm on the road

I too use a Trailex for local kayaking. When the Airstream is in tow the boat goes on the roof.

But I love having the boat always ready to go one the Trailex.
