Default How do you carry 16.5' kayak and Mt. Bike on Class B+

I'm considering getting rid of my Trail lite trailer and getting a small Class B+. How do you carry items such as Kayaks, bikes, etc., or maybe you don't. Thanks.

I studied the problem at length and finally decided that if I could hoist a kayak to a height of 9 feet plus that the cost of the rig would be prohibitive. So I opted for folding inflatable kayaks.

We bought two Advanced Frame Advanced Elements kayaks at REI Coop at $400 each.

On a B or a B+ it is easy to carry bikes on a hitch mount bike carrier.

Here's a link to Wilton's windsurf board / gear / + bike rack:

what I'm hoping to use for just that thing, light weight, and between the size of the minivan w/raised roof, I don't think it will affect the mileage much and will give me a place for the Generator, propane and water tanks (along with prospecting gear, and maybe my carpet cleaning gear, if I take my business on the road with me)

I'd be interested to know what you find with this little trailer. I'm thinking about opting for something like this rather than my Stowaway cargo rack.
