First, have used the advice here on my first TT restoration and can`t thank you all enough! To the point-anyone seen for sale a rear bumper kayak carrier for TT? I have photos of one, but don`t know how to upload a pic yet.The carrier, attached to the rear bumper,hinges down to horizontal to load, push the kayak into a "v" cradle, push the boat up to lock into vertical to carry.

Are you talking about the Kayak carrier on the back of the Class B? Looks interesting. Usual warnings, though, about using a TT's bumper for carrying anything - make sure the bumper is able to hold the weight.

I've been considering something similar but am concerned with wind resistance. My Kayaks are 10'long. My plan was to build a steel basket of sorts to hang on the bumper and then straps at the top that attach to the luggage rack on top of the trailer. - Dave

After pondering how to bring the water toys with us, I decided that a rack on the TV was the best option. Especially if the water is a distance from camp. This is the rack I went with:




Trailer: 07 Tango 299BHS w/ 225/70R15 LT Load Range D

TV: 2004.5 Dodge 610 CTD 3500 QC 48RE 2wd Laramie SRW, FP Gauge, FASS 95/95, Rhino Lining, Hensley Arrow, Air Bags & Compressor, Canopy, Custom Boat Rack.

looks interesting but looks to me like if you take that one RV with the kayaks on the rear over a severe dip, you will end up with two square end kayaks.

It looks like you would need some pretty short kayaks for that to work. I use a Thule rack on my TV and carry a step ladder along to get up there. My boats are 14' and 15.5' long so standing them up on end is out.

Most manufacturers don't recommend carrying kayaks in that position. It usually is hull down for composite boats and hull up or on the side for poly boats. That on end thing is probably ok for the less expesive small rec boats but if they are over 12 feet long put em on the TV roof.
