The SUPs and kayaks need racks in the toyhauler-in-progress and the designer has been designing away. In the garage lurked some PVC pipe from a previous project. Now it has a new cool purpose in life!
I heard a saw running and went out to investigate….
Soon the first unit came in to be admired…
Then it went into the trailer for sizing and more measuring….
As you can see the kayaks will go on the bottom two spaces and the paddleboards on the top two. So after more measuring and cutting of the PVC…
…two more units were born and a plywood shelf cut for the top of the racks for extra storage of chairs, lifejackets or paddles.
Once the whole unit was constructed, the caps on the top and bottom of the legs were screwed into the floor and the shelf on top.
The kayaks and the SUPs were loaded in and it all fits nicely.
By the way, the kayaks came from IrishWaterDogs, a wonderful organization dedicated to healing injured military veterans through kayaking and the outdoors by getting them out on the water. The sale of the kayaks is a fundraiser for them.
There’s plenty of room for Andy’s long 11’6” board, my 10’ and both kayaks in the nose of the trailer.
Job well done, Andy! Can’t wait to hit the road!
