    I used to carry two twin canoes that weighed 35kg each on a roof rack on a tag axle AutoTrail. I would lean them against the back of the motorhome and then get on the roof and pull them up. I had a couple cut sections of an old aluminium ladder which was secured to the original roof-rack to raise it up so that the canoes did not interfere with vents and other roof furniture.
