Hey guys, I had been looking around for a good solution to carry kayak's with a 5th wheel. I decided I don't have the capacity to build on the rear hitch to hold them so I figure the next best thing is a roof rack on the crew cab.

2020 F350 crew, anyone have links to what fits on the roof to carry kayaks? It looks like yakima has something, does this work?

That should work as I have seen late model crew cab pickups like mine with those racks. Thule also makes those same type of racks. I have a USA camper rack on top of my camper shell on another older Dodge Ram. It carries many items nicely including my two different size kayaks.

I am also in the market for those roof racks for my newer dodge ram. There are many on craigs list in good condition ( a complete set) for much less money but have to be careful who you meet with.

Both Thule and Yakima are quality brands. Either one IMO.

I struggled with that question myself for our 12' kayaks along with our bikes. In the end I built a trailer to tow behind the fifth. This works very well for us as we can bring either 6 kayaks or 4 kayaks and 4 bikes depending on our needs for the trip. This may be an option to look at ad well

I put a US Rack on. We are happy with it, I have had it for over 4 years now. I did not want to spend the money for it but was overruled, but now after using it this long, I would do it again.

US Rack.

It does a very good job with our 12.5' fishing kayaks.

If I had a travel trailer that'd work.
