We have 12 foot and 14 foot kayaks and paddle boards, we used to own a toy hauler but no longer do. We are picking up a 5th wheel and I still want to bring my water toys.
How the heck am I going to do this with this size equipment ?

Think shorter toys. I have a 10.5 foot kayak I strap down on the bed for travel. Of course I have to wipe it down and put down old towels under it.

Your other options would be inflatable or there are a few versions out there that break down or fold down.

Inflatables, not as good, but fun for tooling around.

How long is your TV BBC? I have seen T shaped racks that pin in the receiver. Add a arch at front of bed, and a idiot hitch. With toys over cab, could overhang front 2-3 feet without issue. If a kayak is in the center, it does not need clearance to turn, only for drive axle to drop in a dip.

I made a custom mount on the rear of my trailer that uses BOTH the ladder AND the 2" receiver mount for support.... We carry 2 of the 10'6" SUP's..


This was without the brace on the receiver hitch so I could fly my flags !

Yeah inflatables are cool but we sold ours [emoticon] - I like my Carbon race boards too much
