    Video Transcript for Erickson Big Bed Load Extender Review

    Today we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for two-inch hitches part number EM07600. The load extender helps you safely and easily transport lengthy items in the bed of your truck, SUV, ATV or UTV. The Erickson Big Bed also has three height settings. These height settings are used to accommodate different truck bed heights. You can do this while we're moving this bolt and knot raising up this mask and using these other holes to accommodate the truck bed height. At the end of the bed extender there's this nice red reflective tape, this is going to help you protect you and your gear from other drivers.

    The Erickson bed extender is made of a black powder coated steel that is durable and rust resistant. If it's two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receivers, it has a weight capacity of 400 pounds. It weighs 38 pounds and comes with a 90-day warranty. The Erickson big bed can be folded up for compact storage. You can fold it in these arms here, release the pin at the bottom and fold it down. We then reinstall the pin and clip and this can be driven like this in a storage position.

    Also, you can remove the pin and clip and easily move it out for compact storage. This also makes it easier when storing in your garage. Now that we've gone over some of the special features of the Erickson Big Bed we'll go ahead and show you how to install. We'll begin our installation by sliding the shank of the bed extender into the receiver of our hitch. Then, we'll be using a standard 5H hitch pin and clip, we'll secure it to the vehicle.

    We'll line up the pin holes, insert the pin through the pin holes and secure it with a clip on the other side. The Erickson Bed Extender has three sets of attachment points, two here at the very end, two here at the back of the shank and two up here at the front toward the tailgate. This is going to help to further secure your load. We'll first go ahead and lower down our tailgate. As you can see we have a large bed taking up a lot of space here at the front of our bed. The Erickson Bed Extender is going to allow us to carry our paddle board and so I have room for our gear upfront.

    With our paddle board in place, we'll go ahead and use some straps using the connection points and secure it. Now, with everything all loaded up we'll go ahead and take it out for a test drive to show you how it looks driving down the road. That will complete today's review of the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for two-inch hitches part number EM07600. .

    Easy to set up. It solved the problem of hauling my extension ladder and lumber. I was impressed with etrailer.com service. After submitting the order online, I realized I had made an error. I called the 1-800 and got quick service, and received a followup call, that did not have to be made, but showed their level of service commitment. I learned about the Bed Load Extender from a review in the Journal of Light Construction. I found etrailer.com by chance online, am glad that I did, and look forward to my next purchase with them. 202256

    Great. My pickup has a short bed, and this took care of that shortcoming. Well built, durable and folds into a compact size!

    The Erickson Big Bed Extender is a great design & is very well built. When attached to my 2013 F150 w/6.5 ft bed, it extends 11 feet from the front wall of my truck bed providing plenty of support for 12 ft and longer loads with plenty of hooks for tie down straps. I bought this extender to haul a 17 ft long kayak for ease of loading and less wind resistance vs an overhead rack system. As an added bonus, when folded up, it's super easy to store behind the seat or haul in the bed of the truck when not in use. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a handy way to increase the versatility of their pickup truck. Much thanks to Etrailer's excellent customer service and super fast (free) shipping. 119709

    industrial heavy duty product clearly superior to other offerings, has precision fasteners not just nuts and bolts. anti sway arms are a nice addition. using to carry 15 foot boats kayaks/canoes. best i could find online and my opinion after receiving it is it still is. Look like 400 lbs. rating is very conservative. IMHO, that rating is likely due to changes in driving/handling when you have soo much load over hanging the rear. AND yes service / ordering was perfect experience. 266348

    This product is truly a life saver. December 2014 I had an aortic dissection(bad really, really bad news!) My chest is now healed but it's held together with titanium wire. Lifting our kayaks onto the roof racks was not gonna happen. With this we're back on the water. Just lock it in the truck hitch and strap your kayaks in and don't forget your paddles. I love it. 239718

    The product is excellent ! The manufacture needs to make a better shipping box, both ends were taped by UPS. The welds on the small bracket to hold it in the storage position were broken. In the past I ordered a tanno cover, and the box that was shipped was also smashed and taped up by UPS. 193963

    Review from a similar Erickson Big Bed in Hitch Cargo Carrier


    I received the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender and Draw-Tite Front Mount quickly the people at etrailer kept me in the loop when there was a chance that the Front Mount may be late because the manufacturer had not sent stock. This did not become and issue but they called me ASAP when they knew they did not have stock. Nice Service!!!!!!!!!!! I do have a suggestion when installing the Draw-Tite Hitch. The directions say to drill or cut a 1 1/4" access hole in the side of the frame rail to have access when installing the 1/2 in bolts and plate. This is not necessary in my 2006 Dodge 2500 truck. Make a 12" snake out of a piece of copper wire from some Romex. Make a loop in the end and after drilling the 1/2" lower mounting holes in the frame, snake the wire thru the 1/2" hole to the front of the frame rail. Attach the wire that is in the kit to the snake wire and pull it thru the front of the rail to the 1/2 in drilled holes. This procedure makes the installation much easier,saves time and DYI'ers do not have special tools to drill such a large hole. Hope this tip helps. 332678

    Review from a similar Erickson Big Bed in Hitch Cargo Carrier


    Great design and well built! This is made of heavy-gauge steel and i do not foresee ever having to replace it. I bought the track with the adapter you use it as a high-load support for boats, but I will use it in both configurations. I would have given it 5 starts, but the adapter had no instructions, and the bolts had different sized heads than those included with the main body. V this meant I needed the wrenches to get the thing together. 329127

    I am very pleased with my recent purchase of the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender. I also am very pleased with the addition of the High Mount Load Bar assembly. The units are well engineered for a perfect fit on my Jeep GC, and are made of a super heavy powder coated steel material. The flexibility to use it in several ways was a major factor in my purchased. The units arrived in only 2 days and highly recommend these products! 347327

    Ask the Experts about this Erickson Hitch Cargo Carrier
    Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


    • Can a Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 Carry 2 Kayaks
    • Depends on the width of you kayaks and the width of your truck bed, the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 is 48-1/2 inches in width so if your kayaks are narrower than than next to each other this load extender should work well for you. I attached a review video for you to check out. You might also be interested in a pin and clip part # PC3 and ratcheting tie downs like part # EM34415.

    • How Far will Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 Extend Past Hitch on Toyota Tacoma 5 FT Bed
    • The Erickson Big Bed Load Extender, # EM07600, measures 49-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the upright. I have included a picture to illustrate this measurement. To determine exactly how far the extender, # EM07600, will extend past the hitch of your Toyota Tacoma, you will just want to measure out 49-1/2 inches from your hitch pin hole.

    • Features and Operation of Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600
    • The Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 offers a great mix of features that enable it to serve many cargo-assist purposes in a range of vehicles from pickups to SUVs. Please take a look at the linked video. This shows the various design features, which include adjustable height and folding capability, and also illustrates the operation of the extender. Note that a pin (or locking hitch pin) is required to secure the extender in your hitch. You can use a simple pin and clip #...

    • Can the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender be Used with a 2006 Dodge Magnum
    • Yes, I have recommend load extenders such as # EM07600 for cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs. Sometimes it is just the right tool for the job! Once installed in the hitch the minimum height is 16 inches. If you measure from the top of the receiver opening up 16 inches on your 2006 Dodge Magnum that will be the approximate height of the extender once installed. I have linked a video review of this extender for you. In order to use this extender your Magnum would have to have a Class III trailer...

    • Weight Capacity for the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender
    • The 400 lb limit would be for bed distributed loads. Basically, if what you are carrying weighs less than 400 lbs the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 that you referenced would work for you. Check out the review video I attached for this product for you to check out also.

    • Is Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 Wide Enough To Carry 48 Inch Wide Plywood
    • When the arms of the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender, part # EM07600 are opened, they have a span of 48-1/2 inches. This would accommodate 4 ft wide sheets of plywood you asked about. There are also six tie-down points you can take advantage of when this is installed. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out. This extender does not come with a hitch pin and clip, so I recommend part # PC3 for a standard hitch pin and if you want to make sure it is secured...

    • Availability of Light Kit for Erickson EM07600 Big Bed Load Extender
    • Although there isn't a purpose-built option for what you want to do, there are options from a magnetic mount light kit to options that would require some modification of the load extender. For the easiest option that wouldn't involve any alteration or fabrication, I'd recommend a magnetic mount lamp set up like the # RM-2120 offered by Roadmaster. If you'd rather avoid a magnetic option, something like the # EZT20B could be a good choice. The lamps mounting flaps could sit atop the...

    • Will Yakima HullyRollers Fit the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600
    • The Yakima HullyRoller # Y04035 will not fit the bars on the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600. The bars are 1 inch square and the HullyRollers will only accept square bars that are 7/8 by 1-1/4 inches. In order to get the HullyRollers to fit you would need to use universal MightyMounts # Y03590. I have linked our returns policy for you.

    • Truck Bed Extender With 400 lb Capacity
    • The Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for 2" Hitches - 400 lbs # EM07600 is a fairly strong accessory. It is not recommended to add a wheel to this product and it would void the manufacturer warranty. Most other products rated for this application are rated at 350 lb load capacity so the Erickson extender is a little beefier. When in use it measures 52-1/2" long x 48-1/2" wide. I recommend using ratchet straps like the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps w/ Push Button Releases - 1"...
