    I've got a rack that was made for carrying an aluminum boat that I use for hauling lumber/ladders/whatever. It works great, and it's removable. If you are looking for a permanent mount sort of thing, it would be easy to fab, and most shops would probably charge very little to build one.

    I'm so poor I can't even pay attention [​IMG]

    I purchased some brackets from Conn-Ferr and made my own rack. I layed it out to carry two canoes however it would work great for ladders, lumber and the like. The brackets ran me around $90 with shipping and I just ran square tubing stock across the truck from bracket to bracket. The tubing was scavenged from work, then I machined some simple square brackets on the mill from scrap stock for adjustable strap hooks and walla fully adjustable $90 rack. Granted I had access to a bridgeport to make my adjustable brackets, however if you used perferated square stock you could just tie to the holes that line up, or drill holes in the stock every so often.

    Used it this last weekend to take two canoes up north, couldn't of worked any better. Only down side is you need to drill four holes in your fiberglass top to mount the back brackets.

    Let me know if you want pictures.
