    Does anyone here haul a 14 foot jon boat in the bed of their truck? My original plan was for a 10-12 footer but found a used 14 for half the price and picked that up instead. I plan to eventually buy a utility trailer so it can serve both purposes.

    Wasn’t a boat, but I have hauled some long lumber with my short bed (5’-7”).
    I just made a bed extender, that slides into the hitch.

    I’d think something like that could work, at least for the short term, until you get a trailer.

    Thanks, I actually did buy one just like that and that’s how I got it home but it wasn’t too far from where I bought it.
