here's our set up. works well and no leaks...yet
nice... we might add one of these once we get the sag out and redo the outer shell on ours.
tamartin, you have been busy getting the camper ready for this season. Looks great!
Sweet set up, now I'm jealous. Thanks a lot
We've been using this setup for the bikes for about 9 months now. I was worried about leaks because so many people complained about the seam under the rails leaking. But i decided to risk it. I did lightly turn each screw a little to make sure they were still seated well in the roof. As it turns out, there hasn't been a problem at all. I do plan on doing a grizzly grip renovation of the roof just to be prepared.
The Yakima posts are new, old stock from ebay. Got four for $25. They were still in the box! The cross bars are metal pipe from home depot. Yakima cross bars were very expensive! The bike trays are some off brand made in china I bought on ebay for about 30 each. The gray water tank sits nicely in between it all. I strap it down to the bike rails.
Next trip is fort wilderness in April.
What parts did you use to fit in the tracks on the Coleman? Ours has the same thing and I was looking to put kayak racks on it.
I decided to keep my kayak on my TV since there are times I have to drive to put it in if I'm not right on the water. It would be so much easier on the camper.
I don't disagree; I bought a rack for mt truck, but would still like to know what kind of rack fits the tracks, with part numbers and all the pertinent info that is required.
Yakima Landing pads 1 work with the built-in roof tracks. There's a similar version for Thule racks.
Thanks. I think it would be handy to be able to throw the kayaks on the trailer instead of the rack on my truck. Then when we get to the campground put them in the back of the truck for the short trip to the lake.
