Johnny from Yakima showed us the Longarm, their all-new truck bed extender, which offers a great solution for transporting kayaks safely.

This truck bed extender from Yakima is all aluminium and fully adjustable at different angles. The demo we looked at was installed at bed height, but it can also be adjusted to match rail height, allowing room for coolers underneath.  With an extra extension, the Longarm can also connect to the roof rack. A pad can be added for boat protection and the Longarm even comes with a bottle opener on the side. Weighing only 12 pounds, this bed extender is easy to take on and off.

Features:

  • Provides 4 feet of additional bed length with a 60”-wide crossbar
  • Sturdy construction and a 5/8” hitch bolt
  • Aluminum construction engineered for strength – weights only 12 lbs.
  • Rated up to a 300-lb. capacity in lower positions (non-vertical positions)
  • Durable black powder-coat finish
  • MSRP:
    • LongArm: $219
    • LongArm Height Extension: $69
    • LongArm Pad: $19
  • Available: August 2017

    • Yak-Power Battery Box Charging question
    • Yes. It will turn green with a full charge. Note that the box's power switch must he in the "on" position for the batteries to charge.
