My rack for my Rhino on my shortbed Chevy

Here's my delima. I got a 37sp Sandpiper TH with garage. My wife refuses to have it out on the sand. We off road in Pismo. We have a campground membership in Avila Beach.

Previously we had quads. I towed my previous smaller 5th wheel with a flat bed trailer behind it hauling the quads. Now we have this newer 5th wheel and a Rhino. I'm not going to haul a flatbed behind it.

We camp in Avila, but how do I get the Rhino to Pismo? I think I've solved it. I pull the trailer with the Rhino inside to Avila. When we get to Avila I unload the Rhino and a rack for the Rhino to be hauled on the back of my truck.

STETLER had this buggy rack for sale. It was a great rack but it was in one piece, far to heavy to load myself. It was also made for a small sandrail. Nothing quite fit the Rhino. So I bought the rack and cut it apart. I had to do a few mods to make it for a Rhino. It breaks down into several pieces I can manhandle myself. Everything is held together with hitchpins. The rails can be moved in and out (adjust the width) to accomodate any suspension upgrades I may do later. I can leave the base frame (the part that mounts to the truck) mounted on my truck while pulling my 5th wheel.

So now I can haul the Rhino and the rack in my TH. We I get there I build the rack onto my truck, then load the Rhino on it. It also makes it great for day trips and not having to pull a trailer.

CHECK IT OUT! Let me know what you think....

Since the pictures it has been painted....

Thanks for the PM to this link. I haven't had a chance lately to get on this site. This rack turned out Great. I'm glad in the end it will get some use and it looks like it's going to work out perfect for you now.

From the pics I can tell you have been real busy with the changes you made to it. Looks like you decided to bolt down the frame to your bed rail.
Great job, I wouldn't of done anything different!

Rack is for sale now. I have the original 10 chromoly ramps and I also bought a pair of 11' aluminum folding ramps (those cost a pretty penny!).

I'll let the whole thing go for $1000.

The rack works out great. It looks top heavy, awkward, etc, but here's how I think about it. It's lighter than an overhead camper and only about as tall.

The rack has been great to me. Most importantly for me is the portability.

Sweet. looks awesome. DO you have to drill holes in your bedrails to mount the frame?
