Wild river lovers as well as outdoor enthusiasts usually purchase their own kayaks and canoes in order to fully enjoy their adventures each time they go on trips. With such equipment at hand they will be able to venture through the waters right when they want to, and not spend unnecessary time, effort and money in renting rowboats for a few days.
However, one of the main issues of owning a kayak or canoe is the method of transport, as these boats are difficult to place on the car or truck due to their long size. To have this problem finally solved, the Extend-A-Truck 944 Truck Bed Extender is here to the rescue.
The Extend-A-Truck bed extender is a mechanical attachment that is made of lightweight steel and plastic; it comes in a sturdy frame that is ideal for various outdoor equipment, such as kayaks, canoes and as well as sailboats. This attachment is secured on the top and tail of the vehicle in order to use more space for equipment storage, so that it would not protrude or get in the way of other items to be placed for transport.
The basic features of this truck bed extender include:
– 4” wide support
– Adjustable height for roof top hauling
– Adjustable bed extender for different sizes of equipment
– Steady clamps to hold the equipment
– Tail flags for better vehicle recognition
The Extend-A-Truck bed extender weighs approximately 18 pounds, which is just right for its size and use. Because of its moderate weight, users are able to carry it on their vehicles easily without requiring extra force or slower driving speed.
The Extend-A-Truck bed extender is surprisingly affordable, at only $80 with shipping. Other bed extenders tend to cost more, and offer only limited adjustment settings which may not be able to accommodate longer equipment.
This truck bed extender proves to be handy in transporting various items not only for kayaks and canoes, but as well as ladders, sailboats, tent frames and other structures. In most cases, these equipment are placed on vehicles in a rather inclined manner, thus eating up more unnecessary space and still cause distractions to other drivers once they go on the road. By using this truck bed extender, boats, frames and ladders can be shoved right into their allotted spaces without becoming a nuisance, leaving more room for storage and faster transport time.
Aside from its ability to accommodate various types of equipment, the Extend-A-Truck can also be used on different types of vehicles. While they most ideal for pick-up trucks, they can also be attached on sedans so that the equipment can be stored securely on the roof top without causing distractions. The structure also promotes better balance, so that the vehicle won’t skid or exert more force while hitting the road.
This extender can also be folded flat when not in use. Owners can keep it safe in the trunk or at the backseat so that it will be ready each time a new load has to be placed on the vehicle.
