Kayak Rack and Bike Rack using receiver-idea

So we decided to it was time to take our kayaks and bikes with us when we camp. We have a 355MBQS with the accessory hitch. I looked at a kayak rack and they were near $1800 so figured there had to be a cheaper way. What did was got a cargo carrier from kijiji, a truck bed extender, bike fork mount clip, double receiver extension ,some aluminum tubing and eye bolts from a combo of amazon and local suppliers. Ot cost me a total,of $400. It is all bolted together takes about 15min to assemble. Went with aluminum to keep the weight down and using a combo straps and anti rattle clips it barley moves. Total weight is about 220lbs. Used it on a short trip and it seems to work great. If any one wants more details let me know

Yup, pics or it didn't happen

What size kayaks are you hauling? Wouldn't mind taking ours but they are too big to put vertical.

I made brackets that the bike forks lock into and mount them in my basement but I think this winter I'll make something stronger to carry them on the back once we are out of the snow/salt. Too much trouble to get them out of the basement for short stops.

I want to get a kayak but before I do I want to be sure I can carry it with me.I’m looking to make a set up like this for the back of my Eagle HT. Can you post a pic of how you support the upward bar the kayak is strapped to? I know it’s a bed extender bar but how is it attached to the bumper?

Used one of the double receiver holders

Tray on the bottom and the cargo extension on the top.
