Very solid and well built, goes together either direction for use as a bed extender or high load carrier. Need an extension to use for high load extender on UTVs. 778289

I had problem with the order going through so I called customer service and they handled everything quick and easy. They also sent it out with a 2 day delivery at no charge. Product came quickly and it was everything as stated in the product information. I can't wait to try it out! 554348

It does exactly what I was wanting. Very stable and easy install. 558404

My use is primarily for hauling a 14'6" canoe. Sometimes I like to go for quick local trip so low configuration is benefit and I just open back of GMC Envoy and strap it down to the extender. Other times going on a long trip so the tall top extension is benefit to put it on top and make room for gear in back. Easy setup and configuration. Like flexibility to go low and long, or short and tall. Improvements: Would like foam pad Kit for for "U" end to zip tie on to prevent scratches and chafing. 411820

Bar will not go low enough to be level with the bed of a Toyota Tacoma pickup. Frame is built sturdy enough to handle expected loads. Am still pleased with the product!. I put a 1 x 4 across the tailgate and this corrected my lumber load to be evenly distributed between the extender and the truck bed. 446125

Love it!

Was looking for an affordable bed extender to add kayak racks to. It allows me to easily load and unload two 12' kayaks from my short bed Toyota Tacoma. This rack does the job perfectly! etrailer is great to work with. 575097

Great way to haul big ladders without breaking the bank. Well built, easy to assemble, and easy to adjust. 435709

I assembled and installed the extender in my receiver hitch just to see how it worked. It was exactly as I hoped, and was really easy to configure. I have not had occasion just yet to put it to work with an actual load of wood, or a boat etc, but I anticipate it will work perfectly. The vehicle I got it for on was a 2018 Ridgeline. My model has a solid back window, but a buddy of mine wants to get a G2 Ridgeline with the window that opens just so he can put longer boards into the cab. Is he crazy? that model costs thousands more than mine, when for just $57 bucks he can get this thing for the same job, only better. 515487

I bought a hitch and the extension to fit it so I could haul a kayak. Took me about an hour to mount the hitch to my 2016 Nissan Frontier, and put the extension rack together. I am 58 and I did it alone. I would suggest putting a five gallon buck on the end you are not working on to hold up the hitch because they are not the easiest to manipulate. Get one bolt started and then go to the other side. First class products, great price, and fast shipping. Win! Win! 340595

I do not usually take the time to send in reviews. But after the experience I had with etrailer, I felt compelled to share my experience. First, this product is just as advertised and exceeded my expectations for quality. Second, the packaging of my order was great and I could tell someone went to extra lengths to ensure the contents arrived without even a scratch. The bed extender will be a great help to safely haul my fishing kayak. As a result of this level of customer service and product quality, I will definitely be a repeat customer and help spread the word about your company. 552562

It is easy to install and is perfect for my kayak, easy to use. 516836

Saw this in the parking lot at the hardware store one day on the back of a pick up and he was picking up drywall sheets and plywood.....I thought wow I could use that and skip the trailer! Well I bought one to carry US Flags on 10 foot poles in my Honda Ridgeline. This thing is the best thing ever! Easy to configure, quick to set up and take down, adjusts to flat loads, loads with a T bar and roof loads too! Unbeliveable how functional it is. I have been asked about it, seriously at list 25 times by people who see it and thought I fabricated it myself...wish I could take credit but it wasn't me who designed it, I just bought it, and very glad I did! 501606

I still get people telling me that product is amazing! They love to see me demo the options and how quickly the set up and breakdown takes. Strongly recommend. Great for light to medium jobs without using a trailer, it is best and most cost effective, convenient, and easy to use option

Very happy with the MaxxTow MaxxHaul truck bed extender. Quality and workmanship is very good, everything went together easily right out of the box without any need for me to make adjustments. I have a Honda Ridgeline which has a short bed with storage under the bed. This extender is perfect for my situation because it makes the bed more useful and the hitch breaks down into smaller pieces making it easy to store when not in use. That is one of the main reasons I bought this specific extender. Fits easily into my trunk space so its always handy. My only regret is I waited so long to purchase, I could have used it many times already. 417940

I have a short bed pick-up and a 15' Canoe so this rack is absolutely PERFECT for hauling the canoe around! I load it upright with all my gear in it which makes it so easy. Easy to set-up and a great way to haul boats and long pieces of wood. My only suggestion - make one out of aluminum so it's lighter but this isn't bad and it certainly works! 411360

I love the hitch carrier! I used it for my canoe and for long pieces of wood. My only suggestion would be to have some type of eyelet on the two upright bars as opposed to just the holes in the bars, to attach bungee cords to hold down items that might be right up against and blocking the holes.

Quality, fit, finish and packaging were excellent. Shipping rates and service were fantastic. Communication has been very good. I cannot offer any reasonable suggestions for improvement. I definitely recommend this company! 491211

Thanks for a decal - now installed. Photo is of your bed extender with a 2018 Honda Ridgeline and Hobie tandem Eclipse kayak. That is a long kayak and the extender works great.

This product was everything advertised. I rarely order online. Probably the most inpatient person in this world. So when I'm telling you this. It's really how it was. Shipping seemed a little long for me. In reality, it probably was ahead of time. Approximately 10 days to my porch I do believe. Assembly was a breeze. Would recommend this sight to others. I hate hooking up to a trailer all the time. This will allow me to pick up longer lumber and carry bigger ladders with just my truck. 436741

I like the bar, it solves a major problem for me. I'm now able to put a 17 foot long canoe in the back of my pickup, which is really amazing to do. Keeps me from having to keep lifting it over my head, which at my age I'm getting tired of doing. A couple things I was unhappy about - the lack of a thicker base pin where the bar goes into the hitch on the bumper. They REALLY should include that. My shipment was also missing a couple of the regular pins, so I had to go to the hardware store to buy them before I could even use the bar. That is disappointing. Not a huge deal, but annoying. But overall, I'm glad I purchased it, because the bar itself is very useful and well-made. 594117

Works great for my canoe with a few additions. I have a shortbed truck and even with the tailgate down and the canoe in diagonally, there is still too much overhang to keep the canoe situation as securely as I’d like. So I took a chance and bought the MaxxTow truck bed extender and have been very pleased. I like how versatile it is. I can use it with roof rack on another vehicle or with my truck. All in in all it seems solidly built. It went together so easy didn’t need to refer to the instructions but I did anyway just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Tossed in the canoe and went to the lake. Spent a few hours and came home after dark. Since my canoe sticks a few feet back of the extender, I had tied a flag on it. Flag helps in the daytime but not much good at night but it does have the nice reflective stickers to help out. To help out at night (and during the day) I bought a set of magnetic trailer lights and put on it. They make a huge difference for the visibility both day and night. I also went to a home improvement store and bought some pipe insulation and wrapped around the crossbars and vertical bars that the canoe will contact. All in all, including the extender, lights and insulation I have less than $100 in it all. Incredible bang for the buck. 414849
