Add kayak rack to 97 Dutch Star factory roof rack?
Is the factory roof rack strong enough to support a pair of Yakima crossbars (or equivalent, about 86" long), a pair of kayak cradles and an 80 pound kayak? The aluminum tubing on the coach seems a tad wimpy.

If your going to add to much height you may run into problems under bridges or trees and low hanging wires.
Maybe they have some type of hitch rack you can mount them on.

not to mention if it happen to come loose and blows off that roof, your going to more than likely kill somebody. personally I wouldn't do that , but each to his own

I have a hard enough time getting my two yaks on top my Jeep. No way I could ever get them on top my coach.
