rzr on a kargo master rack

thanks to Joel from this forum I now have a kargo master over canopy rack on my truck and i'm thinking about possibly getting a rzr. kargo master says that the rack is rated for 1700lbs and it looks like a rzr is about 1000lbs.

has anyone seen anyone haul a rzr or even a quad or two on one of these? i'd like to be able to do this so I still haul a regular travel trailer around instead of picking up a toy hauler big enough to haul a rzr in the back.

are the bedsides of the truck strong enough for this?

for anyone that isn't clear on the type of rack I have, it's one of these Pro II Full Rack Extended Cab, Long Bed | Kargo Master

If you have a long bed (link says long bed) why can't you just put the rzr in the bed?

I have seen some crazy loads in the past, but never a UTV completely above the cab of a truck. So I am subscribed to see what other members have to say.

I dont think it'll be an issue of holding it, but you're losing a ton of clearance by setting it up that high.

i'd like to put it on top so I still have the full bed with canopy for dogs and other camping stuff while still pulling a travel trailer behind.

it's a little less than 7' right now to the top of the rack and a rzr is just under 6' tall to the top of the cage so it would be about be at about 13' tall. I figure by the time the rzr and trailer are hooked the suspension will drop at least 2 or 3 inches.

i'm not really worried about the height, more the strength of the rack and truck box.

Don't have much info for you. But I would like to see a video of it being loaded. Sounds cool.

I think setting 1,000lbs up that high is just asking for trouble. Its going to make the truck very top heavy. I Have a rack that slides into the bed of my truck and I carry 2 ATV's side by side and tow a camper. I dont think I would want to place these more than maybe 6 inches higher. I have taken turns where I could feel the truck start to really shift with the weight above the bed rails.
I would recommend looking into a rack like I have. I know there are a few company's out there that make these racks for RZR's and other side by sides.
Here is a website for ya. UTV Transport

Here is what my rack looks like loaded


Hope all this helps and let us know what you end up doing.

Maybe a 5th wheel and small trailer since you cab piggy back a 5er. IDK.

an 11.5' camper weighs 4000lbs+ dry/unloaded with most of the weight somewhere around the top of the cab so 1000lbs at the top of the cab doesn't seem unreasonable. i'll probably need to put in a set of airbags to stiffen it up.

loading and unloading would be done with a couple of 14-16' aluminum ramps and probably use the winch on the rzr to pull itself up for safety.

If I were you I would just run a sled deck like MuddyAtv's and you would have room for stuff underneath the deck and still be able to tow your trailer. I wouldn't want an rzr over my cab personally especially if you'll be almost 13' tall.

I think that 12'6" is max legal height without a permit. Have to check DOT on that though.
