Roof Racks AND Trailer Posted by: Cascadians on Jan-02-13 2:12 PM (EST)
We used to have Thule J cradles on the top of our Jeep for 4 kayaks.
But we're old and fat, and getting older, so we upgraded to 2 Hullavators which are awesome. But only 2 fit on top of Jeep.
We've ended up getting a huge amount of dog sports gear for my service Newfoundland who is also my kayak buddy and water rescue dog.
So in order to take all our stuff with us to his many activities we just bought a Pulmor Trailer. It has a 2" back receiver hitch for our bike and dog scooter racks, plus bars on top which we will Thule outfit for our 2 shorter recreational kayaks. The 2 longer ones will ride atop on the Hullavators. Eventually we'll get sea kayaks and a dog specific kayak (not made yet).
This trailer was way too expensive but it fits our needs perfectly, easy to see out back window and a really nice easy smooth ride.
Here's a picture of it our 1st day when we picked it up from U-Haul (was shipped from Colorado and we're in Oregon):
