The rack models do not wobble and  arrive all assembled in three sections that bolt together easily and form a solid frame.  All of our products have been developed and sold by us commercially since 2013. These RV Kayak carriers are high quality racks and manufactured by us under the name  RVKR Development, LLC. and protected under four US patents.  We are  located 3 miles south of Lake George NY in the Foothills of the Adirondack Mountains! This veteran owned business is owned and operated by Larry A Gray. Each order is made to fit your RV, watercraft, and bikes! We assist you from start to finish with the design and proper fit for both your RV and cargo you want to carry. You will get the customer service you deserve.

We put safety first for every order and never just make a sale. Just one example is that we never recommend using a hollow bumper clamp on receiver because the thin 4" square bumpers can fail when carrying cantilevered cargo over 100 lbs.. Our racks have been studied by RIT with an engineering stress analysis completed in 2014 in order to provide you a reliable rack system. Our utility patents cover the four points that you must have in order to be have a usable racking system  and satisfied such as the adjust stainless steel protective guards that fit your style watercraft, The vertical bike rack that allows you to carry bikes inside your rack, The clamping block that creates a rack that does not wobble and needs no other connection to an RV, and a solid one piece design rack that does not have any loose frame parts that rattle finished with all stainless steel hardware. We have hundreds of new satisfied customers each year on the road transporting their valuables safely! 

 All of our patented racking systems are "Made in America" from double powder coated heavy duty steel frames and stainless steel hardware, that both protect and fit your valuable cargo. Whether it is a Kayak, Paddleboard, Surfboard, Snow boards, or bikes our systems are designed to safely carry your valuable items locking them securely in place. The RV Kayak Racks are built to last a lifetime. Easy and fast assembly right out of the box will have you on your way in minutes! We manufacture models that will hold any type of river, ocean or recreational kayak, as well as surfboards, and SUP's and bikes. Any size bicycle up to 76" long will fit the standard bike rack. Tandem bikes will require the larger bike rack.

We've created a multi use vertical rack that fits all Recreation Vehicles such as Sprinter Chassis, Navion motorhomes, Class B, Class C, Class A, Fifth Wheel trailer, and RV’s. Our patented rack systems are made for the ease of loading and transporting watercrafts and bicycles. Swing out Kayak & bike racks are available for Vans. 

Our racks have patented nose guards that protect your cargo from scrapes. This allows the rack to be set at different widths in order to accept wider watercraft such as boards. The guards allow your boards to rest in the bottom while being protected at the same time.

Our Yakups® brand products have the unique ability to easily load and unload your kayaks by simply tilting each craft vertically into the nose guard and then pulling the straps around them to secure them in place. The kayaks are then locked in place with supplied cables and padlocks, then for even more security a swing bar pivots and closes the top section. 


From Fifth Wheel Magazine:

"RV Kayak Racks has come up with a total solution for transporting both bikes and kayaks or surfboards safely. The rack mounts to your Frame mounted heavy duty hitch receiver at the back of your RV. If you do not have a hitch, you can have one installed fairly easily. The rack only installs to the hitch so there are no other mounting points required anywhere on the Fifth Wheel. Watercraft should be 50 lbs or less on fifth wheels and two standard bikes. Also kayaks are recommended to be 11' or less in length for fifth wheel trailers. 

RV Kayak Racks can design your rack to accomodate for a ladder or spare wheel that you might have on the back of your RV. If you have a backup camera fitted to the center of the rear of your RV it will not be blocked by the rack when using the bike carrier.

A clamping block is provided with the rack that eliminates movement of the rack while your RV is in motion. The rack is built to last a lifetime,  manufactured from heavy gauge steel tubing, double powder coated, and  finished with stainless steel hardware. Installation is simple and all instructions are provided. "Our superior construction keeps your bikes, and watercraft completely protected from damage, and safe, while being locked in place to prevent theft or loss. "
