Waverunner Holder design?


I am a welder of 26 years. I had seen webpage that showed a dual waverunner holder that would carry them over the roof of my truck. I am using a Dodge 1 ton dually stretch cab and am pulling a fifth wheel trailer. Legalities in my province state that I can't pull anything behind my fiver. Has anyone seen such a roof rack that I could see photos of? I'll be damned if I can find that web page and have googled every phrase I can think of in this regard. Thanks for any help.... Jimi

Are you sure? I've heard rumors of retired Truckers double-towing their bass boat, behind a fifth-wheel, behind their F450 Duallie truck. But they still held a valid Class A with a valid medical and all the right endorsements, and made whatever modifications were needed to still fall within the letter of the law...

Things like the truck and both trailers were registered commercial, the truck had sufficient GCWR for the combo, both trailers had brakes, and the boat trailer was retrofitted with a pintle hitch instead of a ball. If they can't find any violations of the Vehicle Code that are applicable, QED it must be legal. ;-)

I've seen it done before too, but I wouldn't have a clue where to find a picture of one. I've seen huge truck racks that come out over the front of the truck, and are supported by uprights from the front bumper - usually with a VW-based Sand Rail parked on the top, driven up ramps from the rear. All you would have to do is leave off the rear ramps and add bunker rails for the Waverunners.

And you will need some sort of a davit crane to get them down and onto a cart for launching - unless you want to get an inner-city two-axle tractor for your tow vehicle, with a HIAB knuckle-boom... With enough boom reach, you can stop on the ramp with your tires dry, pluck the watercraft off the rack and drop them into the water.
