Erickson Big Bed Jr as Load Extender

To use the Big Bed Junior as a bed extender, simply connect the support bar to the short end of the extension bar. The Big Bed Junior extends 4' from your trailer hitch receiver, giving you plenty of space to carry your lengthy cargo. The height of the mast can be adjusted to level the support bar with the bed of your truck. Two integrated tie-down points make it simple to secure your load.


Erickson Big Bed Jr as High Load Mount

You also have the option of converting the Big Bed Junior load extender into a high-mount load bar. Simply connect the support bar to the long end of the extension bar so that the support bar is level with the roof of your cab. This makes it easy to transport canoes, ladders, drywall, and other long items above your truck bed, and it frees up space in your truck bed for hauling other cargo.

Product worked as advertised and as expected. See photos - the only way to haul 16' lumber in the 5 1/2 foot bed of an F150. My only complaint was the limited height adjustment. I have a Decked drawer storage system in the back of my truck so the cross bar was too low on its highest setting. As shown in the photos, I had to add an 8 inch riser to get up to the level of the bed. But it was easy and worked well with this new part. Be careful on steep driveways so that the hitch extension does not scrape. Good product - worth the cost.


Comments
Thank you for your review. If you need a bed extender that allows for more height adjustability, I recommend the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender part # Y01149
Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 300 lbs
$258.95
which can be adjusted to 46 inches in height.

Best one in its class and price range. Worked great for canoe and kayak transport. Does wiggle a little bit, but hey, what do you want. I would suggest that if you are transporting something with a decent finish, like other than a cheap canoe or kayak that you consider using a lengthwise cut hollow pool noodle or pipe insulation wrapped around, and secured with duct tape, the T to protect from rubbing and scraping during transport or load/unload. If your transporting lumber or ladders, who cares. But the padding will prevent any sliding as well. When the load is secured with tie downs, the rattling is negligible and very secure. Well thought out product and I would recommend this one as reliable and very price competitive. Oh, and the black powder coat paint makes it look cool too.




by:

I use the bed extender several times a week, and this thing is stout! I got it to help load and unload my Solo Skiff. I am able to stand on the lower hitch part and rest the Solo on it. I also use it as a step into the hed of my truck, 3500 GMC. I love this product.


Comments
Bed extender working great after a solid year of hard use. Minus a little rust from salt water exposure, it is flawless. Excellent purchase.

Very happy with the load extender. I usit with my Subaru to carry long items with the lift gate up.




by:

The extender was long enough but loose in the 2x2 hitch reciever. It should be a little wider for a tighter fit. Definitely need a hitch sway bar bracket. The T-bar was also loose (same reason) when fit over the extender. I opted to use a 3" bolt rather than the hitch pin (not shown in this picture), to keep it from swaying, although not in a dangerous way. Also highly suggest adding the pool noodles for visibility, less slippage for items, and also to keep potential damage to tailgate if accidentally lowered. The 14" extender previously mentioned added to this should allow for almoat all tailgates to open. Vehicle is a 2019 Ram 1500 Limited (New style)




by:

Shipped sooner than expected. Sturdy rack made to last. I added a tail/stop light for additional safety. Got the light and trailer plug here also.


Comments
I use it as a rooftop extender on my SUV. Works very well when I need to haul a few long boards or sheets of plywood. Saves on having to use my trailer for small loads.

Works very well transporting 2 pungo kayaks, easy to assemble, extremely durable, great price on etrailer. Shipping fast, arrived 1 day early. Would be 5stars but kit only comes with 1 hitch pin. Doesn't say anywhere on website, FAQs, or specs that only 1 is included. If I had known 2 weren't included I woulda have ordered at same time.


Comments
AWESOME!!! After a year, We love it, totally recommend this to everyone.

I've used this several times now and have no complaints. It's very sturdy and well made, and the simple design makes it very east to disassemble and store in the back seat of my truck. I works very well for its intended use, and unlike some others reviews I have no issues with it seeming "loose" or rattling, nor have I noticed this while I drive. If it were any more tight-fitting it would be more difficult to put together and take apart, and that would be a serious flaw. I'm very happy with this product. It makes loading, transporting, and unloading my kayak a breeze.




by:

This experience has been a mixed bag. I’ll break it down.

The order:
Etrailer had exactly what I needed in stock. And when I found the same product locally for a lower price, they immediately honored their low-price pledge. They’ve been responsive throughout. 5 stars.

The product:
The product is sturdy, easy to install, and fits the description exactly. I wish it were a bit less wobbly, but I don’t think it will be a problem. Also, be aware that you will need to purchase a pin to connect the load extender to your vehicle hitch. The pin they include is only for connecting the extender arm and the t bar. 4 stars.

The shipping:
They don’t wrap, reinforce, or otherwise protect the product *at all.* Both of my pieces were sticking through the box when it was left on my doorstep, and there are numerous scratches through the coating and into the bare metal. But the product were at least shipped promptly and arrived on time. 2 stars.




by:

Just what we needed to transport our kayaks! The pic shows how perfectly they fit! Super easy to connect to hitch. Great product at a great price. Thanks for the fast shipping too!




by:

I found the Bed Extender to be substantially built. I used it to haul 2 kayaks before I decided on a cap. It did the job, with one nagging issue. The straight extender was reasonably tight in the receiver and presented no problem. when I put the vertical T on the extender I found there was a substantial amount of play in the fit, and it allows the t bar to wobble terribly. I had to run ratchet straps to the truck tie downs in order to keep it from swaying side to side. Ok from short distance to get lumber etc., but not good for long distance 300-500 miles with 2 kayaks on the extender.




by:

Easy ordering, fast, free shipping. Packaging was damaged on arrival, but contents were okay except for a couple of very small scratches, these will not be a problem. The square tubing is heavier than I thought it would be. There is some play where pieces meet. It should do the job!




by:

Ordered the Big Bed Junior Load Extender to haul my 12-foot kayak easily in the bed of my small pickup instead of having to deal with roof rack saddles on car (plus just the effort of lifting and loading). Installation was very simple and straightforward, and as the picture shows, it definitely gets the job done. Four stars vs. five b/c I am surprised at how much slop there is in both how the parallel-to-ground L-shaped bar fits in the hitch and how the crossbar fits on top. May do some duct-tape wrapping to reduce the amount of play in these fittings. That said, have driven locally on a bumpy gravel road and over RR crossing with no issues; have not yet tested hauling boat at highway speed. Five starts plus for etrailer customer service and shipping on my order, btw!




by:

Works fine, has a little wobble to it. I padded the top with pipe insulation and use it primarily for kayaks, though it has utility as a lumber support as well.




by:

Excellent accessory to haul my kayaks. Will shop here again.




by:

Excellent service, Etrailer has always provided excellent service and the support teams there are experts on the products so you can trust their recommendation. Load extender is just as I thought it would be. No (bad) surprises




by:

Excellent product and outstanding customer service. Thanks and special thanks to Matthew for going above and beyond.




by:

it's okay, a little loose fitting.




by:

Just came today. Tried it out on my Jeep Gladiator and fits nicely. Extends my load area to 9 feet. Will be very handy for carrying long pieces of wood. Should be able to carry my 2 16' kayaks.




by:

Well made with a nice coating


Comments
Awesome, I've used it for moving long loads. Works great!

Main use is for my tandem kayak with a short bed truck




by:

I've had it a year; use it to help cradle my Hobie ProAngler. Very solid and have had no issues with it. I'm sure it has many uses I haven't explored . . . yet.




by:

Great job. Shipped quickly. 3 days from order to delivery 4 states away.




by:

I like my hitch extender to put long stock, 12' plus, out the back of my truck bed. It's great so that I do not have to load it up on my roof rack. I would have given it 5 stars but the tubular metal is not that tight at all when placed inside of each other, and the hitch. Does this really affect how it performs....no.




by:

This extender has been a good add on for my truck. It lets me use my roof rack with longer loads and is handy for the occasional long load I might carry in my bed. I like how the unit can be carried in my 5ft Tacoma bed when not installed in the 2” hitch.
Well built and pretty adjustable.
