Re: Touring kayaks and a skoolie
We carried a 16' sassafras strip canoe to CA and back with no problem. I used a 6' step ladder to get on the roof and used two ratchet straps to hold the canoe down. My 12 year old son and I were able to get it on and off with very little hassle. Solo would have been more difficult, but doable. If you have a FE or dog nose bus, just put a ladder on the back. Oh, you may have to drive a little more defensively. It's amazing how many people stare at it when they drive past. I had people veer into my lane at least five times just because they were checking it out. The two straps held fine, even when we encountered 70mph crosswinds in Wyoming.
Daddy, can we go on a trip again??
