      Long Arm and extension gave us what we need to carry a canoe on a short bed lifted Tacoma with a raised cap. The cap rack spread was too short, and the height made it tough to load without banging the cap. Problem solved...

      Be aware

      If you’re looking to use this on a late model Ram 1500, take note that there are only 2 positions that will work because the tail gate will hit the extension arm, completely horizontal ( which is useless ) and completely vertical.

      Kinda weak

      I must admit it works for the most part but I don't see it lasting with heavy use. Doesn't fit great from he hitch and has alot of play mostly because there's to may moving parts to be stable, and its to lightweight to be durable. Im on my second one because someone hit my first one. In case anyone has same problem Yakima does not have any replacement parts for this unit. Pros is its light weight. If they used a bit thicker aluminum and beefed up the hitch section I think it would be a solid product. Way to much sway while traveling. As far as using it as a roof rack option I would say no way.

      Porta Boter
      Great for Boats Too!

      Kayaks and Canoes will certainly carry well but I also use for an aluminum Jon Boat and a fully open Porta-Boat.
      The Limited height adjustment did not create a problem mating up with bed height.
      Light to carry and install. Suggest getting a dedicated box wrench for the hitch bolt in addition to those they supply.

      Fit on older RAV4

      The Yakima Longarm will fit an older RAV4 with the rear mounted spare. About 3 1/2 inches clearance. Love the light weight.

      no more jerry-rigging the kayaks or canoes to our truck..

      I can name a number of occasions where we have come way close to losing kayaks and canoes and causing accidents or spent countless hours trying to jerry-rig them to our truck. It's usually one or the other, so relieved to finally have another option! Easy installation and removal too.
