Bringing Kayaks with My Class C

I want to bring my two 14' kayaks with me on camping trips with my Class C MH. I am not going to try to lash them to the roof, as I would on my SUV.

I'm thinking I have to tow some sort of trailer. I'd rather not use a typical kayak trailer as I'd be looking at a 15 to 20 foot tow vehicle. Has anyone ever seen something that may hold the kayaks in a more vertical orientation?

Any other ideas?

I had the same dilemma, I ended up going with a custom trailer for my 14' Hobie. It's a heavy boat with an electric motor and batteries and I have back issues so I wanted to avoid lifting it as much as possible. So if I had to pull a trailer anyway might as well make the most of it . Ended up with this, scooter on one side, boat on the other, huge storage box, genny mount, extra deep cycle with a solar panel.

I just upgraded from a Class B to a Class C Thor Fun Mover, drivable toyhauler. It has normal Class C amenities but a 9x10 garage in the rear with a nice ramp. I am an avid kayaker. It was a problem in the past hauling wet boats, muddy mountain bikes and hiking boots. I was constantly cleaning my previous rv. I recommend this style of MH to anyone who rides motorcycles, bicycles, paddlesport enthusiasts, etc.

Inflatables

We just bought an inflatable boat and an inflatable kayak. I am looking forward to out first trip in April with both of them. Mine will be for fishing. It will have a trolling motor, fish finder and rod racks. The kayak is for the wife to have fun with.

Had a sit on once and moving it around at 70 with back issues was a problem sold them and got a seaeagle fastback. You can alter the seating for 1, 2 or three people. Very stable i can actually stand up. Handles class 2 white water but haven't done that. Packs do to a 1'x 3' x4' and is easily stored and one thing less in the garage. The bag in the picture is how small it packs.

We are ordering a SeaEagle 370 pro tandem Kayak. Good for up to ClassIII rapids. Very stable, tough over rocks and packs small. Comes with paddles, foot pump, repair kit for less than 350
