How to Carry a Canoe While 5th Wheel Towing with a 2019 Ram 2500


I really want to take our canoe with use next time we go camping but the problem is that I am already towing a 5th wheel camper and I'm not sure how to transport the canoe since the bed on my 2019 Ram 2500 4-door is being mostly used by the hitch. Any suggestions would be welcomed!

Thank you for all of the information! Even though your 5th wheel towing does limit what you can install at the back of your 2019 Ram 2500, this just means that we need to utilize the front of your pickup.

What I recommend doing is installing the Curt Front Mount Hitch # C31089 along with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack System which consists of 59" Vortex Bars # RRVA150B-2 Black or # RRVA150S-2 Silver, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Fit Kit # DK043.

This setup then allows you to use the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar # RTL002 with the front mount hitch and your roof rack to carry your canoe. Some people choose to place their boat directly on the crossbars. There isn't a problem with doing that but if you'd like to place your canoe on a carrier I recommend the Yakima KeelOver # Y04069 because it is a proven, cost-effective solution for your canoe.

Attached is are some review videos and pictures so you can get an idea of what this system will look like on your Ram.
