Mounting kayaks to the side of a ladder rack???
I'm looking at adding a ladder rack to go over my truck topper with hopes of being able to mount kayaks to the side of the topper shell. Basically so I don't have to climb up on top of the truck and there's room for other stuff up there. Looking for photos for anyone that has done this with a commercial style rack, and what you think of it / what you would do differently. I've found a few places that will do custom racks but they get pretty pricey. Basically I'm looking to be able to put a creek boat on each side of the truck, low enough where one person can put it up and take it down without much issue.
My wife and I get a lot of time off for work and love taking road trips, looking to be able to maximize space and still be able to bring bikes, kayaks, climbing gear and still sleep comfortably in the back. So far bikes go on the front hitch, kayaks on the top, climbing/kitchen, sleeping stuff in back. If i could free up the top i could store wet gear up there, which is the biggest issue now.
