The VertiYak™ is the rack solution for the RV community. 

The VertiYak™ is a vertical hitch mount kayak carrier for kayaks and SUPs up to 12ft in length.

One end of your kayak must fit within a 11 1/2" X 17" lower hoop. Please check these measurements before ordering your VertiYak™. Once installed, be sure of adequate clearance between your kayak and the ground to prevent ground scrape. Always be aware of overhead obstacles (low bridges, tree limbs, etc.). Always secure kayaks or paddle boards with 2 straps (not included) at strap loops. Foam padding (not included) can be used on lower hoop to protect rack and kayak finish.

Cradles can be folded inward to be flush with the back of your vehicle when not in use to prevent damage to the VertiYak™ and other potential surrounding hazards.
