Good info. The problem with a hard body is that with full time travel the kayaks will have to be strapped to our daily driver all the time or left outside in various camping situations. I fear that both options would invite problems.
Bag size will be an issue for sure. I have the cargo area in the jeep as well as some room in the MH bays. Definitely plan try out the kayaks and check out bag size before the purchase. Just doing homework. It's a couple hour drive to a decent shop.
plan to buy two. One for wife and one for me. I was thinking that different sizes might give me more flexibility when I go out without wife, which will happen often. Do you find there are times the i9 or i14 might be handy to have?
I would recommend buying the i14T first. then both could yak together. The i14T will be a good yak for solo also.. So you would kill two birds with one yak. The bag dimensions may be found on the hobie website in the description.
It is always a good idea to demo your choices first. If the dealer won't make a comitment to deom over the phone then call another dealer until you find one who will help you get on the water. Maybe someone in the area has the yaks you want to demo and let you try it out with them if a dealer is to far away.
Good Luck with you decision...
