A key consideration for anyone buying a new kayak is determining how best to transport it from your home or storage unit to the water. Options include a trailer, cartopping, or perhaps the simplest means – in the bed of a pickup truck. The latter is more difficult these days as most trucks today have shorter beds, and there are some hull integrity concerns if too much of your kayak is unsupported. A solution for many is to add a tailgate extender to your truck.
We suggest extenders from Harbor Freight for a low-cost but effective option, but there is also a much lighter, sleeker and more functional model from Boonedox that is worth consideration at a higher price. Check out the video below where we compare and contrast the two so you can evaluate which style best meets your needs. We usually have them both in stock, so stop by anytime to check them out in person at Arizona's kayak fishing headquarters, on the SW corner of University and the 101 in Tempe.
