did a quick test to see how big the canoe looks next to the truck. my plan is to carry the canoe upside down on top of the truck. I might add a rail over the cab of the truck and then use a trailer hitch rig to support the rear. I’d like to go the trailer hitch route so that when the truck is topless she can still carry the canoe. we’ll see how that works out but for now, you can see how the 18 foot canoe fits on top of the 14 foot truck.
