I do not think you will be able to do that.

SWB or LWB? I have both sitting here and cam measure but I do not think it will fit.

You can slide a sheet in if you leave the upper tail gateup - fold down the back of the rear seat and the plywood will just slide in beside the spare tire - it will stick out over the lower tail gate about two feet (SWB) - you'll get lots of exhaust fumes in the truck and I think three sheets is about the max that will fit.


I bought a $300 utility trailer for this sort of thing - much safer and handier.

Where did you find said trailer for $300? I may want one.

Bought it used from a landscaper that was buying a bigger one. Look at the Equipment Trader - lots of utility trailers in there - new they are usually around $550 - used around $300-$400. Mine has a 5 x 8 bed but I think the ideal size for one would be around 4-1/2' x 9' - that way the wheels would track exactly behind the Rover and it would be easier to load sheet materials without pinching your fingers. I like them because the bed height is only 18" off the ground so it's easier to move heavy stuff.
