Two kayaks, two bicycles, and a loaded truck going from Arizona to Colorado. The extender worked great with double hitch adapter for bike rack and extender. Still need to ratchet and tie everything down to control play in units.

- MT70231

Product is exactly as described. Assembly was super easy. My application is construction materials and canoe hauling. I loaded my canoe by myself easily into the bed of my f150; tie-down was easy and the width and height adjustments worked fine.

great, stands up to all the things a farmer can throw at it.

Bought this to haul our tandem kayak. Works like a champ. Also used for lumber, ladders, timber, pipe and other materials finishing a home build. Who knew? It was a good purchase for a lot of reasons I never even considered.

My opinion is the same, a great purchase for a lot of reasons. Used it last week with the kayak and its perfect. It makes our Tundra more flexible and carries long loads more safely and securely. Get one. YOu wont regret it!

Simple to put together and install. I'll use it to transport kayaks and I can quickly move it from my pickup truck to my 900 Polaris Ranger It looks to be well constructed and I can also use it for a bed extension on my pickup which has a short bed

Ill be using it this afternoon to haul a kayak on my 900 Polaris Ranger. light weight and works well for what its was intended. An extension

This is a great product. I've had it for 1 year and have used it several times to haul lumber in the back of my truck that was up to 14' long. Very handy. Will also be using it in the up position to carry a canoe later.

- MT70231

Installed on my 2002 Tacoma. I bought it to haul my 13' Vibe Seaghost kayak. Just need to add pads to the base and arm extenders and itll be perfect. Should add option to purchase padding like what's on a boat trailer for those of us hauling kayaks.

Perfect for carrying my kayak on a shortbed Tacoma

I like it for it ease of use. Easy to setup and store. Very versatile in its application. I am usually hauling my Hobie kayak to fishing locations, it becomes quicke an easier to use then my kayak trailer. Sturdy and sound produced. The price was right at the time I bought it.

- MT70231

Love it ! Use it weekly or more for my kayak and my wife's paddleboard. The only thing I did was cover the crossbar and uprights with a pool noodle. Used a bright lime green one that gives the unit higher visibility. The whole thing fits in the storage compartment under the bed of my Ridgeline.

great also working great for 2 kayaks

I am very happy with my Truck Bed Extender. It works as advertised and who could ask for more than that. I would love etrailer sold a bag or hard case to store it in but I've kept the shipping box in good enough shape to make due with that. Highly recommend this product and etrailer as a whole.

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.

The extender worked great on my Chevy Colorado with a 5' bed. It was simple to assemble and has a rugged & adjustable design. It worked perfect to transport my two kayaks and camping gear. One kayak is 12 feet long and the other is 9.5 feet long. My 12' kayak rested on the cross bar with a 2-3 foot overhang.....perfect. I then strap it down to the cross bars. My 9.5' kayak gets pressed and strapped up against one of the upright bars of the extender, so no way is this 9.5' kayak moving back. This hitch makes loading and unloading the kayaks much easier than a 'over the cab' kayak carriers that mount the kayaks about 7 feet off the ground. This hitch extender puts the kayaks at chest height for me now which is much easier.

I received the bed extender yesterday and put it together last night. It looks like it will work just fine for hauling my kayak when i go fishing this weekend.My only disappointment was that there was no pin to attach the bed extender into my trailer hitch. Guess that i'll just go out and buy one at my local hardware or auto parts store.

- MT70231

I’m impressed with the design and simplicity of your product. I definitely feel like I got a good deal for the cost of the Maxxhaul. Thank you for making a worthwhile product ! My daughter had to put it together just to show me she could ! LOL !!!

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.

- MT70231

Received the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender Hitches on time. Found the quality of the product to be rugged and will be using it with our kayaks right off. Easy to set-up and we will be using it on many work jobs! Videos were extremely helpful. Thank You!

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.

- MT70231

Easy to assemble and take apart, very solid construction and do simple to adjust... Very happy

Still working awesome, highly recommend this product

Good value for the price. Easy to assemble. Extremely fast shipping. Will continue to do business with trailer.com as every transaction has surpassed my expectations. A++

- MT70231

Great product. Well made. Easy to assemble and disassemble. Have used it to haul long laddees, lumber and my canoe. At this price point, you can't go wrong. VERY SATISFIED.

- MT70231

Easy to assemble. Strong and versatile.

- MT70231

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!

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.

We did not expect the lake where we kayak would be closed due to Covid 19 complications. We have not used the extender and we are disappointed. But soon we shall. My expectation is 5 stars.

- MT70231

Arrived quickly and was just what i needed to haul a 17 foot canoe in the bed of my truck. The pieces that pin together have a little slop in them but once strapped down it doesn’t affect its performance. It’s pretty stout as well and I believe it’s capacity is advertised correctly.

- MT70231

This seems to be adjustable more so than the last one I bought. Haven't put it to use as of now but think it will work fine

- MT70231

Second time ordering from etrailer- pleased with their quick service and great communications. Compared the Malone and the Maxxtow bed extenders, which are very similar. The Malone having sturdier support posts on the “T-bar” and comes with a hitch pin. I chose the Maxxtow because of the price advantage. My biggest concern was there was enough adjustments to be level with tailgate of my Ram - it does.
