Thanks for pointing this out and for the quick reply w/pic. It seems to be the best open truck bed option and I look forward to getting it set up.

Sea kayaks and bikes with a pickup

Has anyone carried three kayaks and three bikes using a pickup with a 5.5' bed? My dream would be to carry the bikes on top of a tonneau cover (removing front wheels of bikes utilizing a bicycle fork rack perhaps) with the sea kayaks above them on a rack (kayaks would extend over cab, as well, due to length). Probably a pipe dream as loading the bikes might be a pain or maybe the whole rig would be too tall. Fall-back plan would be bikes in the pickup bed and a regular rack for kayaks. Just trying to preserve some under tonneau space for light stuff out of the rain if possible. Thanks for your thoughts!
