    Great construction, sturdy

    Bought a 15+ foot canoe and needed a way to transport it. Found this carrier on Amazon for a good price so figured what the heck. Arrived a day early.Pros: 1. Easy assembly once the feet are mounted. 2. Very sturdy. Can rock the bed without the rack moving a bit. 3. Looks like factory equipment.Cons: 1. Mounting the feet took some customization. a. Had to drill new holes in the feet and the bed lip for all mounts. b. Had to do some minor sheet metal bending to have enough room for the bolts. i. Not the products issue, the 2010 F-150 bed lip is very narrow (one side was 3/8 inch wider than the other) c. If you have a drill press use it for drilling the holes in the feet. i. You will need a 7/16ths drill bit. 3/8ths is not big enough. 13/32nds would be even better. d. If your holes in the bed lip will go into single wall sheet metal you may consider using a 1" wide piece of iron or steel, painted, to reinforce the bed... 4/5 Jack - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
