I wonder if Marshall Welding might do these? I know he specializes in aluminum welded raft frames. Maybe worth checking into. He certainly has a great reputation.

The guys at CKS in Salida recommended Marshall Welding very highly--they're on my list of fabricators to check with.

It does look as though to get what I want, I'll need to have it specially manufactured--man, I would've thought there would have been more off-the-shelf stuff like this available...hmmm--maybe there's a potential lucrative market in all this??


I would be interested to see pics of what you got if I could--thanks!

There's one out there called KargoMaster (http://kargomaster.com). I had one on my old rig. It rusted like hell, created a gap between the shell and the bed lip that was hard to seal. Also, it was heavey, and reduced performace noticably climbing the canyons. If you didn;t want it over the cab, you could leave that piece off during assembly.

I've since gone with a yakima mounted to a shell. Of course my shell is really bomber (http://www.vacationvillageslc.com/)and the previous one wouldn't have been able to handle the job. I can't load 13 boats on at a time anymore, but that's not realistic these days.

Sorry for the delay I forgot to post this up. Anyway this rack is the bomb, if I had more bike racks i could probably fit 4-5 bikes and I am thinking I will be able to fit at least 5 kayaks all at the same time.

It cost me $875 and it was well worth it. This thing is indestructible.

Ok so after all that I can't figure out how to put the pics on here. And I don't want to put them in the gallery and be that person taking off that sweet waterfall pic for a pic of my truck and rack. So if you would like to see this get me your e-mail and I will send it to you.

try remuda racks in denver. they built me an awesome rack for my work truck. i could overload the truck before the rack would break. they do an over the cap mounted to the bed with an extension over the cab. walk rails down the sides are very handy and worth the money. they will coat the rack with spray in bed liner, which i recommend because i did not do it, and the paint started chipping and the rack started rusting. then i had someone sand it down and spray it with bed liner later. be careful of the bike racks on the sides, i have seen them, but i'm not sure they are legal. i have side access windows on my truck topper. i left one open so my dog could stick his head out and got pulled over by a state trooper for having something sticking off the side of my truck more than six inches. even though my side mirror sticks out farther. i am sure that a bike mounted on the side would stick out at least six inches.
