I have been looking for a better way to carry my 14 fishing kayak.
I am going to mount it up there. But I am going to use the rain gutter type racks to keep the weight off the fiberglass roof.
The roof seems to be a little thin,and it's cracking is a worry for me.
I will have to modify the racks a little. But I think it's worth it to ensure that I don't damage the roof.
I have two solar panels up there now. But their weight is nothing to worry over.
I fear that the age of the roof,plus the thiness of the fiberglass. Would make the kayaks weight too much.
Please let me know if you come with with I better way.
I have actually installed D rings under my awning. Thought about carrying it on the side of the van. Worried that it might make it a bit too wide ? It would also block the double side doors. But , the passenger front door is still useable . Have never seen one carried here? Wondering if there is a reason I haven't thought of?
Best of luck .
