I wanted a fishing rod rack for my topper, but I didn't want to drill any holes in it. I looked for products in stores and on-line and didn't find a thing.
So..... I came up with this idea. Welding is required, but maybe this will give someone an idea on design and use wood or PVC. Anyway......
The best part about this rack, is the fact that it is strong enough to use as a utility rack. I hang groceries, hunting gear, clothes, lantern, etc... on it. Love this thing. It's my 4th one that I built over the years (my friends wanted one in theirs too). Check it out!

That is cool. An oddly enough I recently met someone who is a master welder. I see a project coming soon.

Too bad most of my rods are longer than my truck bed.

I criss-cross the long rods. I have a new truck now with a 5.5' bed, so I'm having to do this a lot.
