I want to build a canoe rack for bed of Toyota pickup, and I was hoping
to gain some net wisdom before inventing my own from scratch.
My truck has a plastic bed liner and it does not have the square
holes in the sides of the pickup bed that some trucks have.
The rack would basicaly have to be a freestanding structure that I
could place into the truck bed and then attach it to the tiedown points.
For the attachment I was thinking of using some nylon webbing/rope
and turnbuckles to tighten them securely.
I'd rather use lumber probably (2x4s) as opposed to metal or pvc pipe which
I have also seen done.
My goal is to create something that is relatively simple and cheap to build
and not too heavy so that 2 people could lift it in and out of the truck.
I would like to to be able to easily carry the weight of two canoes.
(maybe three canoes for shorter distances)
Anybody who has ever built one of these beasts could provide some tips
I'd be grateful.
