A nice rack!
Now that I have your attention, I just thought I'd share a few pics of a cool rack I made for my 4x4.
I made the main piece with the plate a couple years ago, but recently added a roof rack and 6 hooks for cargo and the awning, and some braces under the aluminum for heavier gear on longer trips. The long black tube has the frame, ball bunjees and paracord for the awning.
I'm leaving the bed as open as possible for my dog, sitting in chairs when I don't want to set the awning up, and for sleeping on a cot with or without a tarp draped over the rack creating a enclosed and water free camping-sleeping area for when the weather turns nasty. The goal is to leave the trailer at home and pack only necessary gear.
As soon as I get a chance to go camping I'll get some pics of it all in use. Just adding the hooks and roof rack has really brought it to life and makes it much more useful.
