Hi All, I was wondering if any one has seen a Tinny carried on top of a Pop Top Caravan.My roof racks on my Pajero wont carry a Tinny(plastic)Wondering if I could build a frame on the roof frame of the van to carry the boat for short trips so I dont have to leave the boat at home. Won't be raising the roof with the boat on.Have a winch system worked out to get it up on top.
Cheers Steve

Might be a whole lot easier to get new roof racks or at least make them wider to hold the tinnie.

But to answer your question no never seen a boat on a Pop Top caravan.

Cheers.

Why not just carry your tinnys in the fridge? They will be a lot cooler and safer there.

Hi Stephen,

Yes I have done it and the only problem was taking it off each night when travelling. I did try winding the roof up with it on (just to try) and you could feel the strain and the roof moved around a lot. I have seem the cable break on a poptop and it is far to dangerous not to take the boat off.
I also had the advantaged that I could travel with the boat on the car if I wanted to drive to the water and leave the camper behind. So this would be your only downside with having an "only camper" option.

cheers Tony.

Thanks for your help Tony,
I have a fold up boat trailor to move the boat around. Just looking for a way to get the boat to our destinations,only short trips and won't need to be lifting the roof with the boat on top. When I retire I'll get the right set up (new car and boat loader).Happy Travels.
Cheers Stephen
