    Around home, the 2 kayaks go in the 6.5' bed, tied in. Won't work while towing the Winnebago 170s. Probably need a truck roof carrier. Any suggestions where to find?

    I seen some nice bed racks that can accommodate a kayak. And they look fairly easily removable if you don’t want them on all the time. Look into Thule.

    I’m thinking you might need a bed rack and a roof rack for that length. Or an over the cab rack. Just to keep it away from the trailer.

    This is a Thule setup with 9.5 kayaks. The cross bars are adjustable in height. Very easy to install and remove. I keep them in storage over the winter. With 11.5 you might also need to add a single crossbar over the cab.

    Nice setup!
    I'm going the same way since Thule can be loweredto 8 or 10 inches, so I can carry an extra bicycle.

    Inside the camper here too, along with our bikes.

    No bathroom breaks in the trailer allowed if I'm towing it. Grown adults and teenagers should have bladder control or learn to stop drinking so much on road trips.
