We’re looking at getting a canoe (apx 12-14 ft) and are wondering what we would need if we want to carry it on our pop-up camper and/or can we get brackets to use on our Toyota Highlander? TIA

I put my 12 foot row boat on top of my 8 foot popup.  I can’t find any pictures of it easily.  My popup had a roof racks on it and not AC or vents.

I installed a roof rack designed for tent trailers.  Cost $210 Cdn from Canadian Tire.  Really solid system.  Brand is Sportrack and think it is made by Thule.

Thank you RavenBC. So is the rack physically mounted to your camper?  (Booked grilled into the roof? )
Thanks!

Yes it is screwed in to the roof sideways panels(plywood) the rack came with some rubber stickers and the pilot holes were filled with silicone before braces were screwed in.  I plan on leaving them permanently.

I carry my canoe on top of my k2500 suburban using Thule racks, canoe load bar ends, and use a oak orchard canoe and kayak roller.

My first canoe was just above big box sellable, poly construction, and 80 pounds: Old Town Guide 147.  It was fine for lakes but a bear to paddle: 38" beam and flat bottom aka barge.

My next canoe was royalex and has wood gunnels: 16 foot Bell Chestnut Prospector RX. 
The latter was leaps and bounds an improvement from the barge.
