Ok, I know this topic has been beat to death on here, but I have read through as many other threads as possible before posting this. So bear with me. Here's my situation. Just bought a 2007 starcraft 1701, and I have a reg cab s-10 that's already getting a workout just by pulling the pup alone. Normally I throw the canoe and kayak in the bed of the truck, but thats no longer an option when pulling because of how far they stick past the bumper. I'm afraid the wind resistance from kayaks on a truck bed rack in addition to the pup will be just too much for my the truck to handle. It does have the 4.3 V6 manual transmission, but its a 94 with 170,000 on it so its a little tired and cranky at times especially on steep hills and scorching hot summer days of south MS. Does anybody have a similar setup to know if that extra wind resistance from both a kayak and canoe up there does when pulling their pup? I'm leaning towards putting them on the pup, and although I won't be happy about the decreased visibility, it might be the only option if I want to get above 55mph. So in addition to wondering how others fare with them on a truck bed rack, I'm curious if anybody uses the prorac on their pup for canoes and kayaks. My main concern was the fact that they're only held in with wood screws from what I saw on the installation instructions. I'm more of a bolt and nut guy myself, but what's yall's experiences with the sturdiness of this system. Just bought this pup and its my first, so punching holes in the roofs scares me. Any longterm problems with hauling these on the roofs. Do those wood screws with the prorac ever work loose or rip out? Last question, as much as I'm not a fan of foam blocks, I'm not ruling out that scenario either. I've already looked at a lot of the homemade pvc racks and ratcheting the boats the the roof directly under foam or those racks. My main concern with this is where do you run the straps? Seems like you could easily deform the camper and roof and make it prone to leaks by tightening up ratchet straps against the frame of the camper. I wouldn't be as worried with some of these seamless roofs I see on the colemans, but mine has seams on the corners that look like they might not like ratchet straps cranked down on them. I'm really split 33.3 on all these ideas 1. foam blocks ratchets straps against camper 2. additional wind resistance of truck bed rack 3. drilling holes in my roof Any suggestions or recommendations on a roof rack that will be best for my trailer without making it prone to leaks or deformation?
