This past weekend I dared to transport a 2x6 20’ long for a few miles in a city/ urban driving condition. I placed it on top of a 10’ long piece. Can’t say I would do that on highway speeds but you do what you gotta do sometimes. In other occasions I moved a few 16’ , that is still a stretch for the Maverick. I have Elevated Rack installed. I wish the tower spacing was a bit more. It would really help and there is room.

I like the way you braced your 20 footer. I also wonder when someone will offer a rack kit with a helper rail for the cab section.

I sometimes carry 16' sticks of baseboard but I am able to poke that through the sliding rear window and rest it on the dash.

You need a cross bar on the cab. Here is a 17.3 foot kayak on my setup.

For long pieces I have found standing them vertically is much better. The up and down of the suspension is alot more movement than side to side from turning. I dont have any pics but we had some 16s on our roof. We even did 12' just in the bed. We have a project coming up where we will need alot of 20s but we will probably just be using our 8ft trailer. We got tricks for that too!

Hello Peps. I have an elevate rack system on my Maverick, too. If yours is like mine, it has three different height settings. It looks like yours is on the lowest setting (which is where I set mine, too). Good looking Maverick. I like those wheels! They look sharp!

My first reply was a fail. apologies. Pep - I have the elevate rack system on my Maverick, too. If yours is like mine, there are three height settings. It looks like you have yours set on the lowest setting (where I have mine set). Your truck looks great! I really like those wheels. Sharp!

I did something similar. Hauled ten 16-foot deck boards using my elevate racks and a blanket on the roof. I also have Yakima load stops that fit the rack t-slots and provide a nice strapping point. It was a 10-mile drive at about 45 mph. I don’t think I would go much further or faster with this arrangement.

The Kayak has a shape that is not flat so you can carefully slide it until it touches on all 3 points. For lumber I could not find a solution that had the same height on all 3-4 points.

U-Haul rents full sized pickups for $19.95 per day.
As a pragmatic person...give it a thought.

Plus mileage. Unless you just plan on sitting in it, you are probably looking at $100. Now, some Lowe’s and Home Depots have a truck you can rent for $20 for 90 minutes with unlimited miles.

I know a guy who was miffed with me when I declined to transport a 24' x 6" board with my Mav for him. He said we could just put blankets on the roof. :cautious:
