* * * * * * Wow! *Morgan, nice lookin' topper! *I like the way you can access stuff through the back and the side windows! *

Talk about easy access!
Should be easy, but I can't get to the drawers when the trailer is hitched, can't lower the tailegate.

The drawers look slick too! *

Mine are filled with fishing lures.:laugh *

You know, not for your benefit, but for mine ... I was going to inventory and reorganize my two drawers after next weekend. *

The slick thing about the easy access drawers is you can have the truck bed stuffed with stuff and still be seconds away from the stuff in the drawers!

Hard to tell, will you have clearance in the carport for the boat rack ... or will that be an "on-the-fly" rack installation?
The stern of the boat will be even with the rear of the shell. The bow is above the cab of the truck. No sweat on getting it into the carport.

I'm considering a strap winch to help in loading.

Or you could

>>to help in loading

You could always get a wench to help instead of the strap winch thingie.

>>can't lower tail gate

I've seen guys with pickup trucks and heavier trailers than ours using a hitch extender so they can lower the tailgate enroute. And I've never heard of a hitch extender breaking or bending.

But (and there's always a but) I've never used one ... so using one is strictly up to you. You can get them at Camping World, Bubba's or other places on the web.

Here's one:

So, I should use a strapping wench?

I've known of the hitch extenders before, but shied away. My concern is more with towing geometry than breakage.

The moment arm would be too far back:
