Hi, I have a 33ft Kountry Star 5th wheel and was wondering if anyone has used the roof rack to tie down kayaks. I have two 10ft Kayaks that I want to take on vacations, but also need to be sure that if I put them on the roof they will stay there. Not sure how strong those racks are, so I thought I would see if anyone has used them in a similar way.

I would say your racks would hold your Kayaks on the roof. You must have foam blocks to rest them on, an straps that can go around rails with hooks, to hook on to "rain gutters", should give more support grip. I wouldn't do 80 miles an hour though, an watch out for low bridges. ---"007"
