Carry a Boat on your Toad

We carry a 14' canoe on top of our (soft top) Jeep Wrangler. Purchased a rack that fits over the windshield frame and built a rack for the rear that mounts on the hitch receiver and swivels so I can load / unload the canoe by myself. Don't have any photos of the rig, but I can take and send a couple in a few days if you want them... that is, when the temperature here gets above freezing again!

We used to carry a Port-A-Bote back when I was a more avid fisherman than I am now. It stowed on the roof of the RV rather than on the toad, though that would work too.

I have been considering an inflatable kayak that can be stowed in the basement of the coach.

Inflatable 14' Sea Eagle (like a Zodiac), and a road licensed trailer broken down in the basement, the 20HP Yamaha motor and all the rest of the gear in the back of the pickup (has a full cap). We run up to 20 miles when fishing Alaska for salmon or halibut. Boat is very stable in 3' seas and hard chop.

It was certainly commercially made. Almost certainly custom.

I didn't think to get the manufacturer details.

Don't see why it would be illegal. My main concern was the boat motor may be higher than the RV.
