The Big Bed extends 4' from your trailer hitch receiver, giving you plenty of space to carry your lengthy cargo. It has an adjustable mast height of 16" - 9". This allows you to level the support bar with the bed of your truck. Three integrated tie-down points make it simple to secure your load.

You also have the option of converting the Big Bed load extender into a high-mount load bar with the included adapter. The adapter lets you lift the load extender so that it's 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.

Video Transcript for Erickson Big Bed Load Extender with High Mount Load Bar Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Erickson big bed load extender with high mount load bar adapter for 2" hitches, part number EM07600-07601. The big bed extender with the high mount adapter let's you easily carry elongated cargo with your truck, van, SUV, or UTV. It extends roughly two feet from the center of the hitch pin hole so the outside of the extender here, giving you that extra length for items such as ladders, lumber, canoes, or kayaks. It features an adjustable support bar with 9" of adjustability to allow you to level it with the roof of your vehicle. You can adjust from 55" to 64", the support bar measures 52" long and features anchor points so we can strap down our cargo. We can also use those anchor points to further secure our extender to our truck bed to prevent swaying.

When not in use we can simply remove the two pinion clips, we'll take it off, we'll fold it up, turn it upside down, slide it back onto the mast, align the pin holes, put that clip in place, take the smaller pin, put this in place to secure our support arms followed by the clip and then we got it in the stow position. If we need to we can drive around town in the stow position here and when we need it we can extend it back up. It's made out of a durable steel construction with a 400 pound weight capacity and features a nice, black powder coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. It also comes with everything you need to use it as a truck bed extender. That's going to complete our look at the Erickson big bed load extender with high mount load bar adapter for 2" hitches, part number EM07600-07601. .

The Erickson Big Bed Load Extender works great to transport my 16-foot canoe on top of my extended-cab Tacoma with cab-high camper shell — even on fairly extreme four-wheel-drive roads. I use a temporary, suction-cup-style cross bar on top of the truck cab. Then, with the load-extender at the back of the vehicle, the canoe is able to sit farther back, keeping it away from the windshield instead of sticking out over the hood and deep into the driver's field of vision (as it needed to do because of its curving shape) when carried directly on the shell and cab using foam pads. With the Extender, the canoe can clear the shell by several inches, enabling the shell's back window to fully open to access the bed. The Extender sits back far enough to also enable the tailgate to freely drop. Taller folks still need to duck under the very back of the canoe, but the warning flag minimizes head bumps. When loading the canoe, I use heavy duty Velcro straps to temporarily attach a longer cross bar to one side of the Extender's cross bar. This enables me to place one end of the canoe up on that extra length of bar while keeping the canoe a good 18 inches away from the vehicle. Then I go place the other end of the canoe and lift it up onto the cross bar on the cab. Finally, I return to the rear and slide the canoe over onto the Extender's cross bar and remove my temporary side-extension bar. This approach enables quick, easy, one-man loading of a heavy canoe without ever getting close to the vehicle or camper shell body. When taking the canoe out for closer, shorter trips with no meaningful load in the bed, I lower the Extender's cross bar and put the canoe (still upside down) in the bed, where it slants up and over the closed tailgate and rests on the extender's cross bar. I then tie down the open back window of the shell. I've also used the Load Extender to transport 16-foot lengths of lumber on top of the vehicle using the same cab rack. The product offers lots of flexibility. 410953

Great product, well worth the money !!! Unit is well made, sturdy and love that it can be used as a bed extender or a roof mount unit. It’s the main reason I bought it !! 515144

Product arrived double boxed and undamaged. The conversion to roof support was in separate box minus the instructions. Notified etrailer about lack of instructions and they immediately emailed them to me. Thought about leaving it in the "trunk" of the Ridgeline but it is heavier and bigger than anticipated. Will need a couple of wrenches to put it together or switch between versions. Seems like a well made product. The support arms move smoothly. Will probably get an extra lock nut since they have a tendency to get lost at the most inopportune time. 609465

At first I was skeptical about this piece of equipment. I went to the lumber yard to purchase some 2x6x16 pressure treated boards. The salesman looked confused because I have a Ford F-150 with a 6 foot bed. I told him that I have a new piece of equipment that I want to try out to carry the load. He looked in amazement as I connected the extension to my receiver, and proceeded to load the lumber. This piece of equipment allowed me to to carry longer pieces of lumber to the job site without the use of a larger vehicle. The sales staff were helpful in assisting me in selecting the correct extension and provided prompt delivery. 482266

Product is high quality and easy to assemble and install. We are using it in the upright mode to carry our paddle boards, resting one end on the rack and the other on the roof of my truck. Only negative comment I have is that the connecting piece does not fit snugly in the trailer hitch receiver so there is some wobble when driving around with the rack unloaded. 463775


Comments

Glenn,Thank you for your review. For rattling or wobble issues with the load extender I would recommend a Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II for 2 inch hitches. Part BX88224. The immobilizer Stiffens and reinforces receiver to help eliminate rattle and sway. https:/www.etrailer.com/Hitch-Anti-Rattle/Blue-Ox/BX88224.html

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

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

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

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

Review from a similar Erickson Big Bed in Hitch Cargo Carrier


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 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

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.

  • It can be tough to bring along all your gear when also towing a trailer but we do have some solutions for you that will allow you to bring all the kayaks with you. If the trailer is a bumper-pull and not a 5th wheel or a gooseneck then a great option is a ladder rack. Ladder racks aren't just for ladders anymore! Take a look at the Rola Haul-Your-Might ladder rack # 59742. This rack has a 400 pound capacity and aluminum bars to resist corrosion. Since the bars are the same size as the...

  • The Thule Goalpost Hitch Mounted Load Bar part # TH997 weighs around 30 lbs and the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for Truck Bed or Roof part # EM07600-07601 weighs around 57 lbs. As you mentioned, the Erickson load extender is less cost effective but also has a high weight capacity and is more easily stored. They both have a height adjustment from 54 - 66" so you can use them on either your 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander or your 2003 Chrysler Voyager. I have attached a review video of each...

For a front mount hitch I suggest using the Draw-Tite # 65049. The hitch has a vertical load capacity of 500 pounds which will be plenty for your kayaks. I've attached an install video for you too.

You could use a combination of a roof rack and a hitch-mounted load extended such as # EM07600-07601. For a roof rack it will depend on if the truck has factory side rails that run front to back or a naked roof with nothing on it. For factory side rails you can use Thule bars using the following...

  • Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew
  • There are ways you can carry 138 pounds worth of kayak with your 2017 Ford F-150 but I need a little more information. Are you wanting to carry them on the roof, above the bed, in the bed, somewhere else? Will you also be towing a trailer at the same time and if so what kind of trailer (5th wheel, bumper pull)? The location you intend to carry the kayaks will determine the best options.

  • Clearance for Silverado Front Hitch to Allow Use of Thule Goalpost Load Bar # TH997
  • In order to use the Thule Goal Post # TH997 on the front of your Silverado 2500 you will instead want to install Draw-Tite hitch # 65078 whose hitch tube will stick out further forward than the Curt # C31071. The other option is to use a different load support bar like the Erickson # EM07600-07601 Big Bed Load Extender which has a longer shank for more clearance at your front bumper.

  • Trailer Hitch Load Extender Recommendation for Clearing Rear Spare of 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • You would have to measure to be sure but it seems like the answer would be no. The Darby # DTA944 has a distance of 9-1/2 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the upright portion of the rack. Most likely you Jeep would require around 13 inches there. The Erickson part # EM07600-07601 has a distance of 2 feet from the hitch to the upright so it would clear easily.

  • Hitch Mounted Load Extender to Clear Spare Tire on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Thule Goalpost # TH997 extends about 7-3/8 inches from the hitch pin hole to the furthest point of the upright. This isn't going to be enough room to clear the spare tire on your 2013 Jeep Wrangler. Instead the Erickson Big Bed # EM07600-07601 is almost 2 feet from the hitch pin hole to the outermost point of the upright. This will give you a lot more space for your spare. You should measure from the hitch pin hole to the outmost edge of the spare tire to be sure there's enough...

  • How Far Out Does the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender Stick Out Past the Trailer Hitch
  • The Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600-07601 extends out 4 feet from the trailer hitch when used as a bed extender. So if the bed of your 2007 Toyota Tacoma is 5 feet and the extender extends out past the hitch 4 feet that will be at least 9 feet of length. That is more than enough to support the kayak!

  • Hitch Extender With Load bar Wider Than 49 Inches

  • Can a 16 Foot Ladder Be Carried on the Roof of a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • The Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack part # THARB60B, part # TH480R, and part # THKIT1043 is an excellent option for your 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan that will allow for you to carry bikes, kayaks, ladders, and much more. The 16' aluminum extension ladder will be fine as far as weight goes however, due to the shear length of the ladder I recommend adding additional support with a load extender like part # EM07600-07601. In order to use the above load extender you will need a 2" trailer hitch receiver...
