    how do you guys haul your kayaks? i am trying to find a way to carry my 2 small kayaks on my roof rack. they are too wide to fit well side by side, i have to put one up there and one in the bed. lets see how you do it?

    Thanks

    We have yakima racks for our leer cap. The bars are 60 inches , I think. Aslong as the bars do not stick out past your side mirrors there legal(up here). Boats are 12 feet long.
    Cheers:)
