Expert Answers about Truck Bed Extender


  • Tow Extender Compatible with Tonneau Cover Height So Tailgate Remains Closed
  • I do have an option that will work with that application...it is the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 300 lbs # Y01149. I've attached a photo to assist. The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender will not adjust to the height of the tonneau cover on your truck.

  • Using the Yakima LongArm as a Load Assist Just Like the Rhino-Rack T-Load
  • The Yakima LongArm with Extender, part # Y01149-1150, can be used as a lift-assist like the Rhino-Rack T-Load, part # RTL002, in theory. However, the setup is not ideal or one I recommend. The advantages the T-Load has are the loading strap and the two brackets. The strap acts as a cradle when lifting the kayak, both securing it and protecting the kayak from scratching on the rack. The brackets also act as a stabilizer, ensuring the kayak doesn't sway too far to the sides if the kayak...

  • 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 RackPads # MPG314 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. The blocks are 3-1/2"...

  • Can Yakima LongArm Extender be Used for Long Kayak and 5-1/2 Foot Bed Truck
  • The Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 is a great solution for hauling a longer kayak with your 2019 Ford F-150 5-1/2' bed. When in the fully-extended position the LongArm sits out 48" from the center of your hitch pin hole which means you should have roughly 5' of canoe sitting past that. You can use the Crossbar Pad # Y07417 and some Straps # Y05006 to secure your kayak to the extender. If you'd feel more comfortable with something a little longer then you can use the...

  • Is Anti-Rattle Device Needed for Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender
  • The anti-rattle bracket that comes with the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender # MPG907 isn't a necessity but it is good to have as it reduces the amount of movement you'll see with the extender so I definitely recommend using it. You can also swap it out for a tool-free anti-rattle device like the Curt # C27UR or Brophy # RHSB to help speed things up. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • How to Carry 2 Kayaks on Pickup Truck With Over-The-Rail Tonneau Cover
  • If you want to carry two kayaks on a pickup truck that will not interfere with an over-the-rail tonneau cover you have a few options. First you could use a Malone # MPG544 Dual 2” Receiver Extension, using the lower receiver to hitch your trailer, and the upper receiver to hitch the Rhino-Rack # RTL002 T-Load Bar. This will support one kayak at the rear of the truck. To support two kayaks you will additionally need the Rhino-Rack # RR-RTLK Replacement Kit to obtain 2 additional load...

  • Recommended Truck Bed Load Extender For Carrying A Canoe At Cab Height
  • The Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 300 lbs # Y01149 that you were looking at is only suitable for truck bed-height loads. For a cab-height load you will want to go with the Yakima LongArm Bed and Roof Load Extender for 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 165 lbs # Y01149-1150. I also recommend adding Crossbar Pad # Y07417 to prevent your canoe or other items from getting scratched. This measures 28" long and wraps around the Yakima Longarm crossbar. You could also...

  • Recommended Bed Extender for 2001 Ford Ranger to Carry Kayak
  • The good news is that bed extenders rely on the trailer hitch receiver on your truck and they're not going to be vehicle specific-which is why they're not showing up in the fit guide for your specific vehicle. So, as long as you've got a 2" receiver like the Curt # 13138 on your 2001 Ford Ranger you'll be able to use the Malone # MPG907 without any issues. This bed extender will add up to 62" to your truck bed and will provide a nice, sturdy base to carry your 14 foot long kayak. In...

  • Front Hitch for 2021 Ram 2500 to Carry Thule Goalpost or Yakima LongArm
  • The front hitch I would recommend for your 2021 Ram 2500 is the EcoHitch part # EH37FR because it sits up the highest and is the least recessed for clearance when using the Yakima LongArm # Y01149-1150 or the Thule Goalpost # TH997. Both of these would easily stick out far enough to clear the front bumper of your truck.

  • What Hitch Pin Lock Fits the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender?
  • Yes! If you have either the Yakima LongArm # Y01149-1150 or the # Y01149, the locking hitch pin you need is the Yakima HitchLock for Yakima Hitch Mounted Bike Racks - Same Key System # Y07235. This hitch lock attaches to the hitch bolt that comes with the LongArm. If you need the replacement hitch bolt itself, that is the # Y8890200.

In order to make sure that the Rhino-Rack T-Load will clear your camper shell and reach your crossbars, I recommend measuring the pinhole of your hitch receiver to the top of your shell.

  • Load Extender That Will Allow Rear Hatch to Fully Open
  • We do have a load extender that will allow the rear hatch to open on vehicles such as your 2019 Toyota Highlander, and for that I recommend the Yakima LongArm Bed and Roof Load Extender for 2" Hitches # Y01149-1150. While not a load assist, it is a load extender that will allow the rear hatch of your Highlander to fully open because of how it can be positioned.

  • Carrying Kayak On Roof Vs. Truck Bed with Malone Axis Truck Bed
  • The kayak can indeed be carried in the truck bed and then the bow/stern secured with a load extender like the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender part # MPG907. The only downside of this option as opposed to securing the kayak to the roof is that you lose bed space. The great thing about the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender is that is can be used when securing the kayak to the roof as well if you change your mind.

  • 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.

  • Weight Capacity of the Erickson Big Bed Junior Load Extender # EM07605
  • If the steel tubes weigh 140 lbs all together then I would at least try to seperate them on the driver and passenger sides of the roof rack on your 2017 Honda CR-V. The best option for weight displacement would be to put them evenly across the width of your roof rack but that can be a little difficult. Make sure that the load is 140 total and not each. Should the steel tubes weigh 140 lbs each then you will not be able to carry them on the roof rack of your CR-V as that is 560 lbs....

  • Roof Canoe Carrier System for Use with Hitch Load Support on 2018 Hyundai Ioniq
  • All roof racks currently made for your 2018 Hyundai Ioniq, shown on the linked page, consist of two crossbars and the related foot assemblies. But since you have a hitch support like the Malone Axis # MPG907 to hold one end of your canoe I do have a good solution for you that will cost much less. We offer canoe carriers that do not require any roof rack crossbar. These cost-effective carriers include items like the Malone Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG156. This kit includes 4...

  • Transporting Kayak With Toyota Tacoma With Overland Bed Rack

There is no cargo basket that will fit 4 inch wide bars nor can I recommend drilling for a basket install. This will be a good solution to your problem though! I've included some videos of the load extender to show you how it works!

  • Front Mount Hitch, Upright Bar, and Roof Rack to Carry Kayak with 2016 Ford F-350
  • Since your kayaks are pretty long and you'll be towing a fifth wheel trailer the best option will be a single bar roof rack with an upright hitch mounted T-bar mounted in a front hitch on your 2016 Ford F-350. So for that you'd need the # RRVA150B, # RRRLKVAH, # RTL002, # DK190H for the roof rack and upright and then for a front hitch # 65049 and you'd be set.

  • Hitch Mounted Upright and Paddleboard Carrier Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Tahoe
  • The Erickson Big Bed Junior Load Extender # EM07605 that you referenced can basically fit any vehicle with a 2 inch hitch like your 2003 Chevy Tahoe. Due to the crossbar design of the rack you would basically just be able to strap the boards to the bar since it doesn't use a standard crossbar. A better option would be the Rhino-Rack T-Load part # RTL002 which uses a standard aero crossbar that would allow a roof carrier to fit. The Thule SUP Taxi Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # TH810001...

  • Roof Rack and T-Load Bar for Hauling 2 Kayaks on a 2017 Nissan Titan
  • I recommend using a Rhino-Rack set up for your application. This includes the Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the DK Fit Kit # DK468 for the roof rack. Then you need the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar # RTL002 which fits a 2" hitch. The parts above give you a full 2-bar roof rack which can be useful for multiple applications but if you are only wanting a 1-bar roof rack you need parts # RRVA150B, # RRRLKVAH, and # DK468H.

  • How to Carry Kayaks on Roof of 2012 Ford F-250 Crew Cab While Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • I think you have the right idea using a front mount hitch and the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600-07601 on the front of your 2012 Ford F-250 Crew Cab. 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.

  • Could Hitch Extender be Used with Malone Axis Truck Bed Extender
  • We have an 18 inch extension for 2 inch hitches like the part # C45796 which should give you enough clearance with the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Extender part # MPG907 to use it in the vertical position and still open the tailgate. You should note though that when you use an extender like this you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch it's installed in by 50 percent.

Your options are certainly limited with a tonneau cover on your truck, but I do have a solution for you.

  • We have products like the part # MT70066 which would fit your 2 inch hitch and allow you to possibly install the # RTL002 in the top opening and then tow a trailer with the bottom opening, but with adapters like this you cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by half so that may become an issue.

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 Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar # RTL002 for your application.

  • Can a Load Extender be Used to Carry Kayaks Out of an SUVs Hatch
  • A load extender like the Malonel Extender, part # MPG907, isn't really intended to carry a load sticking out of the hatch of an SUV like that but it would work the same. This extender at its widest is 48 inches so you need to make sure this is enough space for both your kayaks. The extender has reflective tape on the back but there isn't a flag included. You can use part # EM05308. Then to lock and hold the extender to your hitch receiver I recommend an anti-rattle lock # 63232.

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...

  • On the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender # MPG907 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge on the carrier is 53 inches. So to the nearest part of the up right it will be approximately 51 inches. By my calculations your 10 foot, 5 inch kayaks will overhang the bed by 41 inches. That means if you were to slide the kayaks all the way in the upright on this carrier would still be about 10 inches away. All of the similar extenders are a bit too long...

This would be in addition to a support used in the front mount hitch. For a single roof rack bar you could save some money and use the Darby Turbo rack # DTA968. It uses a strap that runs through the interior of the vehicle to secure to the roof. Otherwise I recommend a regular roof rack with 2 crossbars for more support...
