Well, here is the issue. Family likes to go camping....3 kids, and we like to kayak as well. I am trying to figure out if I can get a solution to carry the kayaks and bikes, or kayaks and camping gear on my little big tex trailer (Our vehicle is a 2005 Honda Odyssey van, so with three kids we always run out of room for gear, and I was thinking I would modify my trailer to carry some of the above) What I was originally thinking about doing was to attach the roof box in the photos to the bottom of the trailer (would keep all our tents/sleeping bags, canopys dry) and the I wanted to somehow fabricate some bracing above the box to carry our 2 kayaks (most likely 3 next year) I have 2 sets of Thule J carrier for the kayaks, and was originally going to try just attachng the load bars to the top rail of each side, but I wouldn't have enough clearance for the roof (trailer box) My thoughts are we could keep the cooler and outside stuff camping, and just use the leftover room in the van for food and clothes. (Also, freeing up the roof allows us to carry the bikes on the roof, as its a PITA for me to try to get the 13 ft kayaks on the roof by myself....no help from the kids as they are too small, and wife just had a rib removed and cannot lift anything heavy. So, attached are some quick pics...any ideas? Or hould I just scrap the idea dn sell the trailer for a little larger one. (This one is only 4 X 8) Look forward to seeing the engineering minds at work on this one.
