Anyone have any ideas how to transport an Outback on our new motorhome other than a trailer?  I believe its too long to stand up on the back?

That’s why we got a fifth wheel and a goal post for the front hitch.  Buy an inflatable for when you are RV’ng.

I did a custom one for one of the NWKA brothers from Alaska, we put holes in the roof to bolt it on (Dicor over the feet) and it was a pain to get up there and he was well over 66. Its doable.

I used the first video to come up with my own idea.
It works.
I'd rather have something like in the second video.
Might make something like that if I feel the need but for now #1 works.
What I do like is that I don't have to climb up on the roof.

Rooftop is pretty much out of the equation for this rig.  Has anyone used one of these?  Incredibly pricey but would be excellent if it worked okay.  With the length of my hobie I'd be right at 13.5 feet... that's a good 3 feet over the top of my rig.  What do you think about this?  Has anyone tried a vertical mount on their rig?

Do the math.
How long is your kayak?
How high will the lowest point be from the ground?
If you have a 13 ft kayak and it's lowest point is only 24'' off the ground you now have to clear 15'.
Think about it.

I would first put the kayak on roof to see if it will even fit? Looks like lots stuff on your roof.
If it will fit it can be done
I mounted two tracks on roof. Then use my cross bars and saddles
Issue is getting on roof. Outback heavy
I put pad on back of Camper. Throw a rope over camper to front
Lift the kayak up to 45 like loading. Person in front then pulls on rope as you push up from rear.
Does not take much pulling because at some point kayak goes over center and will then slide into saddles

note need to contact manf of MH to get info on ceiling support locations for mounting track. Also get load info for roof. With all the stuff on roof you may already exceed roof loading?

Have you thought about inflatable or modular kayak?  Might save you some $$ and back pain.  If you do, I would suggest modular kayak (inflatable is a pain if you like to load-n-go).
