So, I guess I'm going with the vertical rack from rvkayakracks.com.  The boat will stick up to about 13'.  But at least we don't lose our mobility.

DEFINITELY measure and give yourself some lee way.
My motorhome is lifted and has 33'' tires and my high point with the Hobie Revo on top is 12'4''. I look for 13' clearance or greater.

Well.. got the rack and everything looks good.  Expensive as fuck but a good alternative to pulling a trailer.

What's the height from the ground to the tip of the highest point of the kayak on level ground?
You will also have to figure in bounce height.

Just goose it as you go under, suck the ass end right down. DO NOT STOP OR APPLY THE BRAKES. I seen that movie, and it does not end well.

That's very cool. Does the rudder stay still---looks like it might want to flap in the breeze...

13' 3".. leaving me a whopping 3" of "extra" clearance!  And shit, never considered the bounce height!

Ya, I'll have to think of a better way to secure it before I hit the road with it, for sure!

Expensive a fuck for about $100 worth of steel, I love being able to weld! Are the stock rear bumper bars going to bottom out before the light weight skid plate under the nose of that hobie? Think receiver hitch scraping on an inclined driveway. That sucker looks REAL tall from the back photo. Too bad it isnít at an angle with the bottom facing the rig.

I have a pretty steep driveway ramp and didn't bottom out on that.  I'm sure I'll run into a few issues with bottoming out.. but hopefully I can anticipate them.  I'm learning that everything in this sport is overpriced.. especially anything with the name "HOBIE" on it.

Eide Boat Loader - they work really well.

Yep, +1

These are the Shi-biz, although a kayak doesn't have a nice wide transom for stability.
