Just over 6ft so that's technically a no-go for you. though unless Poncho is on a tear I bet they are not going to get out the tape measure for 4 inches. Be safe, legal, and get an extended roof mount. I like eTrailer for such options, but it's a personal choice. in my area bicycles are the thing, talk to other kayakers and see what the like.Thanks for sharing that link for Harbor Freight, that's a great deal! California overhang can only be 4', my kayak is 10.5'
Does anyone know the full length of the bed with the tailgate down?
