Roof, Add-ons and Trailers

There are many types of cars, trucks and vans that can carry poles.  Each one has its own unique problems.  There is no way we can go into solving your individual problems.  These pictures are here to help you see how others have decided to creatively work on theirs.  It takes time to down load these pictures, but if you click on each photo you may find a solution to your tipi pole problems.

And.....we are not responsible for any damages or accidents you may have trying any of these ideas.  You are on your own  in coming up with the new and super way of carrying poles.
