Can the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier Be Used on Yamaha Rhino 450 UTV


Can the Darby extend a hitch rack work on a Yamaha Rhino 450 utv with roof for hauling a 10ft kayak? The Rhino has a 2 in receiver hitch.


Expert Reply:

The Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier # DTA944-968-924 that you referenced is designed for use on pick-up trucks to carry a kayak over the truck bed, but could work well to carry your kayak on your Yamaha Rhino UTV with 2 inch hitch receiver. We will want to take a quick measurement to determine the compatibility of the load extender with your UTV.

The hitch-mounted extension is adjustable vertically from 53-3/8 inches to 60-3/8 inches above the top of the hitch opening. If the roof height of your UTV falls within this range from the top of the hitch opening, the kayak carrier will work well for you. If your roof height is less than 53-3/8 inches from the top of the hitch opening, it will mean that the kayak will not be able to be carried level.

The # DTA944-968-924 includes foam blocks to help support the kayak during transportation. For tie-down straps to secure the kayak to the carrier, you can use # 753-2030-02.
