Retirement light (or 1.0)

Mama and I were able to enter into the full time RV lifestyle with relative ease. We have encountered many great people and hope for this trend to continue.
As I'm not completely ready for retirement, we figured that this would be a great start to "test the waters".

Looking at your pics. What do you carry on that monster roof rack?

That is actually a modified boat rack. There is a 2000 lb winch on the back and 2 12 foot ramps that bolt onto the front. It can be used to hold a side by side or 2 quads sideways. Looking at adding a trolley platform in order to haul a Harley Electraglide.

You haul a SxS up on top of the truck?

A SxS fits up there quite easily. Both mama and I are avid hunters and like to fish so the setup is very advantageous.

Which SxS and is the top of it higher than the top of the trailer?

We'd like to get a SxS to take south but I don't like toyhaulers. Your option looks like it might work. Any more details on it you can share?

Edit: Found one from loadit.com that looks like yours
