    Stand for a truck bed

    I want to make a little stand for the bed of my truck to be able to haul one of my standups to the river. I know some of you guys have made something like these before. i am looking to do it for as little cash as possible as well. Does anyone have any pictures that i can go off of to build mine? close up shots with and without skis would be very helpful.

    Search for mr bojangles truck bed launch system. I based mine off of that I'll try to get some pics of my setup later on this afternoon.

    What I've done is cut two pices of 1 1/2" pvc pipe. Heat up the ends and flatten them out so the will sit flat on the bed then screw them down to the bed.
    i also installed a detachable winch to help load it back in the truck.

    Re: Stand for a truck bed

    I was thinking of those hitch haulers but i am looking to keep it pretty cheap i already have a two place trailer but im looking to make something just to throw one in the truck and go somewhere and not deal with the trailer. As well as the hitch hauler i would be too scared of someone rear ending me and hitting the ski.

    Re: Stand for a truck bed

    I have also seen a lot of people using winches. Is that really that helpful? could you just back the truck down to the point where you can slip it in?and push it back up or do you guys recommend using a winch?

    Here's my setup...only thing missing is the ratchet straps that I run across the front of the winch pole to keep it from moving. At home, I slide the ski right back onto the stand out of the bed of the truck. After having this system for two years, I wish I would have used pressure treated wood, and also higher quality casters...the wood is starting to split in spots and the wheels are also starting to deteriorate. Other than that, they system works great
