Cartop Rack Recommendation
« on: March 02, 2023, 10:51:41 PM »

Hello All
I recently bought a 12 foot Sylvan cartop boat. It has a 57" beam. I'll be putting it on top of my F150 (6.5' box) when my wife and I will be towing our travel trailer over yonder.

1) What type of rack have you found to be best for side trips to other lakes once base camp is set up?
2) Is a rack fitted onto the roof the canopy strong enough for rougher terrain, or should I focus ona rack that wraps around the canopy and is fixed to the sides of the truck bed?

While I'd I'd love to shell out a bunch of $$$ and get an EZ loader, I'm recently on a fixed income.

So, does anyone have some thoughts?
