Do you have a 2" receiver hitch by chance? If so, I will lend you my hitch extender with the crossbar on top.

I will have room on my trailer for one more if you would like to ride along with me. I won't be staying in Cocodrie, I'll drive down early the morning of the tournament. Let me know if your interested. Algiers is only about 15 min from me.

Yes, mine puts the yak above the bed where you can use either rack on top of cab or I have been sticking mine thru the back glass that slides open. So, to elaborate, one part of the yak rest on my hitch extender that I have pool noodles on and the the other end is your choice either rack on top of cab or thru back window as I have been doing . I did weld a 12 extension to the part that fits in the receiver hitch so it sits back a little more which is good for mine . I have a hard bed cover on my F150 so I welded mine to be kinda of straight up but the height will adjust somewhat up and down. If you want me to stick it in my hitch receiver and shoot you a couple of pics I can do that on Sunday just let me know. I purchased mine at Harbor Freight but you are welcome to borrow mine. When did you want to get it? I am actually going to camp on Saturday so I could meet you at first exit past 310 if you want.
