Do you and your family do a lot of outdoor activities that require you to carry your equipment in or on your vehicle? If you do and have a truck, check out this tutorial on how you can make your own utility rack for your truck. I really like this one. You can always buy or pay for a rack but this looks pretty simple to do and would save you some money so you can buy more toys to strap onto the rack and get them to where the fun is. If you needed to move furniture in the rain the rack could also be used as a rain cover with tarps tied over it. Kurt E. Clothier shares the directions on Instructables.
