The PADDLER'S RACK is a pickup truck rack that carries kayaks, canoes or other cargo weighing up to 300 lbs. It mounts in 5 minutes with NO DRILLING, and it easily adjusts to fit all trucks with ordinary beds as well as truck beds with track systems such as the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. Its extruded aluminum crossbar with exterior dimensions similar to the Thule crossbar is supported by steel legs and bases that are first zinc plated and then powder-coated to resist rust. Multiple tie-downs help anchor kayaks and canoes with straps or ropes.

  • Installs easily without drilling your pickup and holds securely.  It can be removed in less than 5 minutes and can be easily disassembled for more compact storage.  (However, pre-drilled holes allow this rack can be easily bolted to the bedrails of the truck if preferred.)
  • Zinc-plated and silvery powder-coated steel bases and legs support the 20MM x 30MM  aluminum cross-bar designed to work with Thule and Malone accessories. Standard steel legs powder-coated in black are also available if zinc-plating is not desired.
  • Zinc-plated and powder-coated steel bases and legs support the 20MM x 30MM  aluminum cross-bar designed to work with Thule and Malone accessories.
  • Regular-size truck racks fits trucks with ordinary height cabs.  Tall-size truck racks fits extra-tall Ford Super-Duty trucks and Dodge Mega-Cabs.
  • Has four built-in rope cleats on the legs, and four hook eyelets on the bases for use with ropes, straps, bungee cords or ratchet straps when tying down cargo on your rack.
  • One half of a rack may be purchased for use as a headache rack mounted right behind the cab, or it may be mounted near the tailgate and used in conjunction with a roof rack.


Specifications:  Shipping weight is 40 lbs.  Leg tubing is fabricated from 14 gauge 1.25” square steel tube and base is 11gauge steel.

    • I like that it has gear track pre-installed. If you do not want a front hatch, the compass is a looker. You could even cut a hatch if you wanted.
