Kayaks and Bed Liners
I'm looking for options to carry whitewater kayaks. So far I just have the factory roof rack. I tried a kayak stacker on it, but it was a pain to reach the roof standing on the side rails, so I ended up returning it.
First off, I'm looking for a good soft bed liner, since the factory coating is like sandpaper on a plastic kayak. I've been throwing in some workout mats, but I'd like something more permanent. Any suggestions?
Also, I was thinking about some sort of rack in the bed. I remember seeing someone that bought the Vantech siderails and then mounted a Yakima rack onto the rails, so the rack sat just over the bed, instead of sticking up at roof height. Anyone tried that or know where I can find that post? I haven't had any luck finding it again.
Any other suggestions on carrying whitewater kayaks (6 to 10ft long)?
