The Yakima DryDock is a hitch mounted crossbar frame with a folding foot for easy tailgate access. The DryDock makes a perfect platform for boats on a pickup truck or SUV with a 2" class 3 or larger hitch receiver. By using a hitch mounted crossbar, you can carry kayaks, canoes and other long loads while keeping your truck bed free. The DryDock is made of steel with a rust resistant black powdercoat matte finish.
The strong Y-frame of the DryDock combined with a bolted hitch pin holds the crossbar with great stability compared to other hitch T-bar systems. Nylon pull-tight stabilizing straps are included to tension the DryDock back to the vehicle frame or solid metal bumper. The mast of the DryDock is telescopic, allowing for height adjustment in 2" increments to match your other crossbar and clear your roof.
Yakima round crossbars
are sold in various lengths separately from the DryDock to match your gear (crossbar not included with DryDock purchase). Add a Yakima HitchLock
(sold separately) to lock the DryDock to your vehicle.
