Could I just simply replace the 5" bolts with longer 10" bolts? Would you have any other suggestions?
Or purchase a rack that's meant for both https://www.rvkayakracks.com/collections/kayak-racks

Those racks cost way more than my 6 by 10 cargo trailer!

Why not add an additional ladder on the left side and strap the kayaks across both ladders. This way you can still use your bike carrier.

How about a roof mount on the cargo trailer?? Would think the kyacks would fit nicely there and out of the way.

Mounting some Thule crossbars and their ‘hullavator’ will even lower them down the sides... (ok - starts to approach the rack prices, but neat concept...)

Hello Everyone,
Thanks a lot for your time and an excellent ideas on mounting the bikes and kayaks together. I would like to give the credit to another Forum's member who gave me this idea as well but for some strength reasons I do not see his post here anymore. Hopefully he can read this Thank you again !
I decided to go with the Vertiyaks and Thule 4 bikes carrier
I purchased 4"x4" heavy duty bumper hitch. Drilled two 5/8" holes in my 4"x9"bumper, used 2"x6" treated wood which I mounted inside the bumper to add some support and that was it. Today I am going on 4 day trip and this whole setup will be tested. Here are some photos. Happy 4th of July!!!
