Roof racks question.

I have a 2010 Jayco Jay Series popup. I want to take my canoe with me camping. Does Jayco make roof racks for the camper...there are rails that run down both sides. Are foam racks a better less expensive choice. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I put this SportRack on my 2010 model 1007 when I had it two years ago. I was able to mount four bikes at one time on it or three kayaks or a combined lesser quantity of both.Click image for larger version

I would NOT recommend foam blocks for carrying water craft (canoe/kayak). Once you strap them down, all of the downward force is on an unsupported part of the roof. The roof racks that mount to the rails (I had the generic SportRack pup camper rack on mine too) put all the weight over the stronger side wall of the roof (full wood support).

I recently made a rack to carry a combination of gear, including kayaks which would probably work well for a canoe:
