Roof racks RedHawk 23XM

Has anyone put roof racks on their RedHawk or Greyhawk?
If so, could you send pics.
I am an avid paddle boarder and I would prefer to keep my fibreglass boards
(like 11' surfboards) as opposed to purchasing inflatable boards.

We considered it, but with no easy way to get on the roof of the 23XM, it wasn't really practical.

I was considering this but was afraid of puncturing the rubber roof. I had an inflatable kayak but changed that to a 10' rigid kayak and mounted on the ladder.

I've seen where people have mounted them to the back of the RV, I've even seen 10' kayaks mounted vertically and unlike bikes, they don't bounce.

I don't have pictures or know anything more, but maybe a direction to google.

Thank you for your responses. At first I thought that not having aladder would be a detriment to the roof rack idea but if I get a collapsible one I could access the roof and therefore any gear up there would be safer.
The holes in the roof don't bother me as I'm getting solar mounted and it's the same process. I've had solar on my past RV rubber roofs and have not had any issues...requires diligence to check on the condition of the self levelling sealant regularly.
The 23xm has a slide out the back, so If I mounted them on a hitch mount I would have to remove the boards every night.
I'll keep looking and post a response if I proceed with the racks.
