We own 2010 cougar,with the slide out carrier in the rear...Has anyone modified this to hold a boat vertical on it?.

This isn't on a rear carrier, but you may want to look at how he does it.
You tube Grand Adventure, how we carry a kayak
Hope it helps.

I have seen many RVs with a kayak mounted vertically on the rear sometimes to the ladder. I carry mine on truck camper shell roof rack.

We solved the storage and transport issue with inflatable kayaks.

Very few of those stories I would guess. Modern inflatables are pretty rugged and reviews indicate they hold up well in a variety of conditions. They are not without concessions though, most of which is maneuverability and tracking. Far more stable than rigid kayaks though and obviously, very portable. We've had ours over a year now, lakes, creeks, saltwater etc, and not one issue. You will need to get a decent brand - still cheaper than rigid ones.

Folding kayaks are awesome but start abut $900 for a decent one.
