Has anyone seen/purchased a canoe carrier that clips to your tail gate and roof rack?Saw an extended cab going the other way with one and my first thought was SWEET!!!!! Sure beats 1/2 a boat hanging out of the box with a red work sock tied to it. Ogre
Sorry,'bout the contest thing.Don't know how that got in there,sometimes I've got toes for fingers,and hit keys I shouldn't.Yeah, I've seen the hitch post type too, but then you can't pull the pop up tent. The one I saw was clipped to the tail gate,looked like an inverted "y" with a bar on top.
Be careful with the PA model one, they severely reduce your towing capacity. I have just the extension (without the extra receiver) for when I was hauling the camper on my ATV trailer and the quad in the truck, to clear the front of the camper overhang. You'd be really amazed at how much difference in tongue weight the extra 18" makes. I figured it'd be the same as a longer tongue on the trailer, nope! It was nasty enough that I ended up throwing it in a corner to cut up for welding a front receiver in to a buddy's winch bumper. Just a word of caution from my personal experience with it. It was ok on road, anything resembling FSRs or bumpy asphalt caused the trailer to sway and buck excessively.
The v-towing model is basically what I had in mind. I'm actually considering buying another drop hitch just to do that to, so I can make a spare fuel can holder on the back to get the gerry cans out of the back of the truck. It won't decrease your towing capacity at all. LR
Yeah from what I was reading a year ago, any extension does reduce your tongue weight very quickly. Add the accessories on the extra mount and pretty much useless unless it is a light trailer hauling an ATV.
PA had the one like the V-Towing but PA also has an adjustable ball mount version with the accessory mount on top. I bought it hoping to put my bike rack on when I have my pop up but the trailer is too close to use the bike rack there. I might have been OK with a longer tongue trailer
