The best truck bed extenders for fishing kayaks in 2018.

Welcome to our first blog post in our series of "No Nonsense Reviews" where we bring you no nonsense reviews on all things kayak fishing related.

Today we're reviewing the latest in fishing kayak bed extenders on the following categories:

  • Price
  • Durability
  • Quality
  • Ground Clearance

A fishing kayak is an investment that will lead to loads of fun and new experiences. Use some of these truck bed and hitch extenders to safely transport your fishing kayak from your house to the fishing hole.  

1.) Boonedox T-Bone Bed Extender

Coming in at #1 is the Boonedox T-Bone Bed and Hitch Extender.   We love it because of the solid aluminum tube construction and awesome ground clearance.  There's a few adjustable points make it level with your truck gate and it's lightweight so you can store it easily.  We just wish it came in a black color.

  • Price 3/5
  • Durability 5/5
  • Quality 5/5
  • Ground Clearance 5/5

2.) Yakima LongArm Truck Bed and Hitch Extender

#2 on our list is the Yakima Racks LongArm Truck Bed and Hitch Extender.  This one is kind of a preference since we just love Yakima's lifetime warranty, but they've also knocked it out of the park with this extender.  Solid aluminum tubing compliments many adjustable angles from laid out to vertical so you can use it (with the Yakima LongArm Extension) as a roof top extender too.  Ground clearance is good, but the Boonedox has better.

  • Price 3/5
  • Durability 4/5
  • Quality 4/5
  • Ground Clearance 4/5

3.) ECOTRIC Pick Up Truck Bed Hitch Extender Extension Rack Canoe Boat Kayak 

#3 on our list is actually an Amazon's Choice we haven't used this item but felt obliged to include it in our reviews.  It's simple, it's cost effective, and it looks like it gets the job done.  We feel that it lacks a little in width and that the ground clearance could be troublesome with those that have a steep driveway.  But if you're on a budget, this is a top pick.

  • Price 5/5
  • Durability 4/5
  • Quality 4/5
  • Ground Clearance 3/5
