Hello! Nice forum here, I’ve enjoyed my browsing so far and will dig in a lot more, it looks like a great resource!
So this is yet another post asking “how do I transport all this stuff?” I’m not sure it’s doable on one vehicle but I’m hoping!
So, my wife and I canoed for years before kids. Lately, one or the other of us has canoed with our two boys. Boys are 12 and 14 now, and have been gravitating towards kayaks. So, we now have our beamy old Rogue River canoe, plus two 10ft Zenith 100 kayaks for the boys. The hope is obviously that we can now all paddle together. The question is how to transport all this.
Trailer would work but hoping to get it on our vehicle so we can tow our camping trailer for trips.
Back-of-camping-trailer upright rack would work except it would be great to be able to take day trips without camper, plus camper does not have rear tow hitch receiver to mount a rack.
2 vehicles will work but it would be more convenient not to have to.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get these three boats on 1 Chevy Suburban? I’m wondering if extended roof rails would accommodate 1 canoe on the gunwales, plus two kayaks on their sides in fairly upright J racks? Or is there a technique to stack this stuff somehow?
Anyone doing anything similar? Any ideas, equipment suggestions etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
