Kayak mount

Does anyone transport a Kayak with their RV? Any rigs or mods that will allow us to bring one along with us?

I bought a 4x8 trailer from harbor freight and built wooden racks to hold our kayaks and paddle board. It cost me about $300 all said and done and it can go from vehicle to vehicle as well. No trying to get a kayak on top of a roof, scratching paint etc..

KYCAMPER, I have a trailer on which I have mounted 3 pairs of J-cradles to carry kayaks (could carry 4). Previously I had it rigged with 2 J-cradles and a center stanchion for carrying 2 kayaks and a canoe. It would be easy to rig with 2 J-cradles and a 2 bike carrier.

If you were in Texas have I got a deal for you.

It is a 4x6 trailer that I bought on Craigslist and extended the hitch 30" and made a rack out of some scrap iron and bought the j cradles off craigslist for 25$ I have about $450 with new led lights and paint.

Here are a couple of youtube ideas.
Considerations need to be made for the extra height and whether you have a toad or not.
