Review of the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for two-inch hitches part number EM07600. The load extender helps you safely and easily transport lengthy items in the bed of your truck, SUV, ATV or UTV. The Erickson Big Bed also has three height settings. These height settings are used to accommodate different truck bed heights. You can do this while we're moving this bolt and knot raising up this mask and using these other holes to accommodate the truck bed height. At the end of the bed extender there's this nice red reflective tape, this is going to help you protect you and your gear from other drivers.

The Erickson bed extender is made of a black powder coated steel that is durable and rust resistant. If it's two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receivers, it has a weight capacity of 400 pounds. It weighs 38 pounds and comes with a 90-day warranty. The Erickson big bed can be folded up for compact storage. You can fold it in these arms here, release the pin at the bottom and fold it down. We then reinstall the pin and clip and this can be driven like this in a storage position.

Also, you can remove the pin and clip and easily move it out for compact storage. This also makes it easier when storing in your garage. Now that we've gone over some of the special features of the Erickson Big Bed we'll go ahead and show you how to install. We'll begin our installation by sliding the shank of the bed extender into the receiver of our hitch. Then, we'll be using a standard 5H hitch pin and clip, we'll secure it to the vehicle.

We'll line up the pin holes, insert the pin through the pin holes and secure it with a clip on the other side. The Erickson Bed Extender has three sets of attachment points, two here at the very end, two here at the back of the shank and two up here at the front toward the tailgate. This is going to help to further secure your load. We'll first go ahead and lower down our tailgate. As you can see we have a large bed taking up a lot of space here at the front of our bed. The Erickson Bed Extender is going to allow us to carry our paddle board and so I have room for our gear upfront.

With our paddle board in place, we'll go ahead and use some straps using the connection points and secure it. Now, with everything all loaded up we'll go ahead and take it out for a test drive to show you how it looks driving down the road. That will complete today's review of the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender for two-inch hitches part number EM07600. .
