Genius I love a good flatbed and hate pulling a trailer if I don’t have to!

Now that's a great idea!

Do you have any better pictures of the bracing and how it mounts at the hitch?

Does it latch in any way to the top of the bed, or is it just the strap across the top?

Really cool build.

Cool idea.

Word of caution though....I have had bad luck with ratchet straps & angle iron.
