I have a Raider canopy on my F250 and I want to fit a Rhino boat loader. The problem is I need to install a structural support under the canopy to support the rack and boat.
I have seen the Rhino supports and have been told they have problems with leaks. I also have drawers in the tray so the Rhino supports would be a problem.
Can anyone advise me of business around the Gold Coast or Brisbane who can fabricate a support?

We have the Carry Boy that can support the weight without bracing, but I have seen one with supports that were attached to the top of the tub which should be ample for supporting a boat.

With the Carry Boy the rear of the canopy was well forward of the rear of bumper where the rear bars of Rhino Boat Loader has to be, so I fitted 2 25mm square aluminim tubes between bumper and loader to give it a lot of support. Technically it is probably not legal because it partly obsures rear lights, but no-one has ever said anything.
