Specs

Best Use Kayaking, Canoeing
Dimensions (Height) 56 - 70 inches
Weight 36.5 pounds
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! The canoe is secure on the pickup truck I combined the hitch bracket with the bars and Q mounts on my Tacoma top give me the best and most secure carry for my 16' canoe ever. Good directions, easy install, easy off season removal and it feels good, even during those brisk crosswinds going up Route 81. This mount is better than any of the several I have used over the years and a reasonable cost for the quality.

Can I install a long bar on the DryDock so I can carry 2 canoes on my Pick-up?  What is the maximum safe weight load for the product?

Asked by: creekdeacon
A long bar can be used with the DryDock. The weight limit of the DryDock is based on using with a roof rack system which is 165 pounds.

What's the distance from the hole to the pole? My jeep has the spare tire on there back and would need about 8.5 inches to make it work.

Asked by: hoser22
A minimum of 9 inches from the center of the mounting hole to the end of the spare tire is required for the DryDock Boat Hitch Mount to clear the tire.

I have a ford explorer and a ford edge, would this Hitch mount work for those vehicles?

Asked by: gfoss
This item will mount to both vehicles provided you have a 2" receiver hitch. It's also recommended that you have a Yakima crossbar over the roof of your vehicle to support the opposite end of your load.

De[ending which picture you look at, shows the crossbar as being part of the Drydock but in the Q&A says sold separately. Confirm old seperatly and can I order from REI?

I have a Diablo Paddlesports Amigo (big and heavy) and need something like this to keep from ruining both my boat and tailgate on my Ford Expedition when loading onto my roof rack. Having a factory hitch, will this fit my SUV? Thanks!
