Securing a kayak or paddleboard to the top of camper without beef racks?

Wondering if anyone has tried securing a kayak or paddleboard to the top without the beef racks. I don’t have the racks because my gladiator will not fit inside my garage with the racks on top, but I would like to transport a kayak or paddleboard.

Not my picture but I ran across this the other day:

That boat weighs at least 50 pounds before the frame and oars.


Mine would be about 75 lbs. I can’t remember how much weight we can put up there and still allow it to open.

For reference, I think my SUP is like 40lbs and i cant open my top with 3 beef bars that it is strapped to
