Would a six foot pick up truck bed with a 4 foot hitch extender provide enough support for transporting an AI?

Figure about 7 feet will be supported by the truck bed and tailgate, and I'd probably have around 6 feet of the AI extending beyond the end of the hitch extender. Appreciate any advice,

Thanks

Piece of cake, go for it! I have a TI, I transport in my 8' bed, with an extender that I made myself! It works great! Just lash the hull to the extender T bar, and you are good to go! I also made up a harness that connects to my Electrical connector on the Bumper, and it is hooked to an LED Lightstrip ( The kind that goes under the tailgate! ) that you can get for like 20 bucks or so? I lash that on the back of the kayak, as I transport at night, and it keeps the peeps back, and away from running into it! Mine has the Turn Signals, Brake Lights, and Running Lights all-In-One, unit! It is water proof, and durable.....east to do too!
