You’re ready to embark on a great camping adventure! You and your family are loading up the fifth wheel, and you can’t wait to hit the road. You’re planning on visiting some great boating spots.
The only problem is, you’re not quite sure of the best way to tie that sucker down. Your kayak was expensive, you certainly don’t want to see it fly away in your rear view mirror as you’re cruising down the road in your rig. And you definitely need it to be secured safely so that you have peace of mind if the road you take gets a little bumpy. So it’s time to strap that boat down nice and tight. Here are our best tips for tying down your kayaks and canoes.
You can’t wait to get that boat floating in the water. Whether you’ve got a kayak or canoe, it’s a lot easier to transport in the water than on the road. Tying down your boat is something you should take very seriously.
A boat that is tied down incorrectly is a safety issue for not only you but other drivers you share the road with. Before you choose to buy a rack or tie your boat down, we recommend looking at your RV owner’s manual for suggestions on tying down canoes or kayaks. Note that some large travel trailers have enough storage space in the cargo compartments to store a kayak. Some models even have space specifically designed for carrying small boats!
