    Looking nice out there. Question, how did you add the longer crossbar for the canoes?

    I cut some pieces of aluminum angle, drilled the mounting holes, and painted them. Then used U bolts to hold the cross bars. I was hoping to find squared off U bolts to fit the bars better, but I didn't have any luck. If you have the round Yakima bars, then the rounded U bolts would work great.

    Don't need no fancy rack when you got lots of straps!

    So I have a homemade tubular bed rack that is a little shorter then cab high and was wondering if there were some base that would work and be able to raise the actual bars the Kayaks would sittin on up?

    Anyone carry a 17’ canoe on their prinsu with no bed extender? If so can I see pics?

    I haven't hauled any of my boats since getting my Prinsu on, but I did haul my 18' aluminum Starcraft Canoe on my old Sierra regular cab without any issues. Based on that, i'm not worried in the least about hauling it on the double cab with the Prinsu.

    No pics, sorry, but I did haul it from Ottawa, ON (Canada) all down to basically Detroit, MI. Just shy of 800km without an issue.

    Took Ol’ Red Out for a trip today! When I was a teen I saw this canoe in an elderly lady’s home and asked her what I could do to earn it... helped her around the house a couple times through the summer and the reward was the canoe.

    This is what I want - I just saw this - I just bought a 2019 TRD Double Cab Off Road....I have a few sets of Thule Cross bars and the folding J Cradle kayak holders. I do not want a huge rack in the bed, and to not use the j cradles. Can you give suggestions - how do you use the bed rails? Thanks!
