Transport regulations kayak restraint - roof and trailer

#1 Post by Steve R » Sun Jul 29, 2018 10:09 am

I went hunting for advice on current regulations for car-topping a kayak, turning up nothing. Eventually I wrote and was sent a link, not to regulations but to a guide. The guide for light vehicle load restraint is located under heavy vehicle :roll: on National Transport Commission's website:

https://www.ntc.gov.au/heavy-vehicles/s ... int-guide/
Make sure you get the Load Restraint Guide for Light Vehicles.

Direct link: https://www.ntc.gov.au/Media/Reports/(E ... E53C0).pdf

There is no specific mention of kayak. The guide applies nationally (with variations included).

EDIT: Bold red applied to emphasise the need to get the right document. Direct link added.
Cheers,
