the design is great, just what I was looking for except I wish Erickson offered this bed extender in a lighter weight version also. for instance a 200 lb. version same size and design. 160048

I bought the bed extender for my Chevrolet suburban so I can easily transport my 100 lb fishing kayak; it's to big and awkward for me to lift it 6 feet over my head to the roof mounts. Plus I can now transport building materials without disassembling my 3rd row seating! Love this option. 656516

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

I use this for hauling lumber. It's very sturdy and easy to assemble. Also once assembled it goes on and off the truck in seconds. Easily handles 14 foot boards probably could go 16 but I haven't tried yet. 412315

  • 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 #...

  • 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...

  • Load Extender for 2006 Ram 2500 Short Bed and 2×10×16 Boards
    The Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 would actually be a great option for your long boards since it is 48-1/2 inches wide overall. That is one of the widest load extenders available. As far as length this or really any of the extenders would be fine. I do recommend adding a hitch immobilizer # BX88224 because these extenders are known to have a fair amount of movement in the hitch (due it part to the length of the extender).

  • Crossbar Width of Erickson Big Bed Load Extender
    The Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 has crossbars which are 48-1/2" when in use, and that dimension does not include the wings - or tie-down points - at the end of the crossbars. The 48-1/2" is usable space, so your 4' wide plywood or drywall will have 1/2" of space when you lay them down on the crossbars.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Height Measurements of Erickson Beg Bed Load Extender
    The Big Bed load extender, part # EM07600, has three height settings in 1 inch increments. I went out to the warehouse and measured from the center of the hitch pin hole myself and they're about 17-1/8, 18/-1/8, and 19-1/8 inches to the top of the load bar.

  • 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"...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Will Yakima HullyRollers Fit the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600
    The Yakima HullyRoller 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.

  • Can the Length of the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender Be Adjusted
    The length of the truck bed extenders like the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for 2" Hitches part # EM07600 are not adjustable. That said, all you would need to do is move the load away from the cab in order for it to rest on both the bed floor and crossbar. It could then be tied down to keep if from sliding back and forth inside the truck bed.

  • Recommended Canoe Carrier For Short Bed Truck
    The longest load extender is the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for 2" Hitches - 400 lbs # EM07600. This is 52-1/2" long x 48-1/2" wide. For a 16 foot canoe, there really isn't a good solution for such a short bed without going onto the roof. I recommend the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier w/ Hitch Mounted Load Extender and Single-Bar Roof Rack # DTA944-968-924 for your application. If you really don't want anything on your roof, then I recommend the Malone MicroSport Trailer -...

  • Will Load Extender Match the Truckbed Height of 2016 Toyota Tacoma With Factory Hitch?
    The lowest setting of the Erikson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 is 18" in height while the lowest setting of the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 is measured at 17" high. That will still bring you at an inch higher than your truck bed. If you're carrying a kayak, you can put down some foam blocks like Malone FoamHome Storage Blocks # MPG163 to lift the kayak up on your truck bed and you can reuse the blocks when you store your kayak in your garage or on the ground.
