Can The Vacuum Cups on the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Mount Vertically on the Back of My Camper?


wondering if vacuum cups work on back of truck camper to assist holding kayak vertical. camper is 72 caveman


Expert Reply:

Yes, the SeaSucker Monkey Bars have a versatile vacuum cups that will allow you to mount them on the back of your 1972 Caveman camper. However, depending on how length of your kayaks, there will be issues if length of the kayak sticks out vertically past the roof. This can cause a lot of wind resistance against the kayak's surface.

The best solution would be to mount the Monkey Bars on the roof of the camper. This will give you much less wind resistance. If you need a compatible kayak carrier with the Monkey Bars, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # RR570. The Nautic carrier comes with 2 tie-down straps with padded buckles and 1 set of bow/stern ropes included for securing your kayak to the Monkey Bars. If you need assistance with loading the Monkey Bars or the Nautic carrier to your camper's roof, I recommend the Thule Telescoping Ladder for Vans - 9 Steps # TH301404
