TailGator extends the legal hauling limits of your truck bed. If the average truck bed length is 6.5 feet, and the maximum legal overhang distance is about 3.3 feet, the longest item that could legally be hauled with the average truck is 9.8 feet long. TailGator adds an additional 4 1/2 feet, increasing your legaul hauling length by almost 50%!
“Per CVC Section 35410, the load upon a vehicle, trailer or semitrailer shall not extend to the rear beyond the last point of support for a greater distance than that equal to two-thirds of the length of the wheelbase. The wheelbase of a semitrailer shall be considered as the distance between the rearmost axle of the towing vehicle and the rearmost axle of the semitrailer.”
