How to take 10' kayak with me

I have a 2011 32' sunny Brooke fifth wheel trailer. I pull it with 2003 dodge quad cab short bed, with a pull rite super glide hitch. I have a wilderness tarpon 100 which is 10'. I want to take it traveling with me and don't want to put it into the trailer or on the roof of the trailer, and with the 100 lb restriction for the rv bumper I was wondering what choices I have. I am thinking the roof of my truck but it is to short to make it to the front bumper of the truck for the front hitch support. Anyone using just a roof rack with this size or can point me in the right direction.

I'm new here so please go easy on me if I put this in the wrong spot.

Thank in advance for your help.

I've seen them secured diagonally on the back of trailers. Less wind resistance.

Your kayak should be well below 100 lb. restriction on 5th wheel bumper! If you put secure anchor points fastened into structure on rear of the trailer, lashing it on diagonally, out of the wind would be the ideal solution. Anything else would require a structure or post from front bumper of the truck to support the kayak. I carry mine on a roof rack on my toad, almost lost it last summer in strong crosswinds, and I thought I had it well secured, riding in the 'shadow' of the RV.

Maybe you could attach it to your rear ladder? They are rated for a person to go up so it should hold a kayak.
