Good product. I got a new trailer. I decided to put the ladders on the side of it. As the other trailer had them on top. There were things I didn't like to do to get rolling down the road. With this ladder rack holder I got my 28 foot ladder closer to the ground. For me it's easier to handle. And a 16 foot ladder above it. After having these ladder racks for a year, I consider it a good investment. The finish on them has faded some and I may have to paint them in another half a year. Other wise, built good. I like the ladders on the side of my trailer than on top.

I'm sure most of us could get by with making our own trailer organizing system...but what the hell for?! These guys perfected the designs. Stop screwing around and do things right the first time. Reasonable prices and fast shipping. Hope it helps you as much as it has helped me.

  • Ladder Rack With Higher Transport Height than Pack'Em Ladder Rack or Extensions
    The Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Side Rail of Open Air Trailer - 2 Ladder # PK-28WL2-BMH is 46-1/2" tall x 2" wide x 1" deep, so anything taller would require customization as there isn't an extension designed for this system. If you want just the holders so you can customize the height, I recommend the Ladder Holder for Pack'Em Towers - Enclosed Trailers and Open Air Trailers # PK-28WL. For additional tower length you can add the Heavy-Duty Towers for Pack'Em Ladder Rack or Rack'Em Blower...

  • Can Rack Em Ladder Racks be Shortened
    We sell a single ladder version of the rack you mentioned as part # PK-28WL-BM but it's the same height. That said there's no reason you couldn't cut down either version as needed.

  • Will the Pack'Em Ladder Rack Fit a Trailer With High Side Walls
    The Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Side Rail of Open Air Trailer part # PK-28WL-BMH for 1 ladder or part # PK-28WL2-BMH for 2 ladders are universal ladder racks designed to fit most open air trailers. The only requirement for the ladder rack is that you have two anchor points for the uprights to attach to the side walls of the trailer. The upright posts will attach to trailers with metal or wooden side walls. I went out to our warehouse and measure the bolt hole spacing on the upright posts for...

  • Difference Between Pack'em Ladder Racks
    There is just one difference between the Pack'em Ladder Racks that you mentioned, which is the tower kits they come with, and that designates the type of trailer that they are designed to be used on, per the manufacturer. The towers have slightly different hole spacing and configuration depending on what they are designed for.

  • Easy to Use Ladder Rack Options for an Enclosed Trailer
    I do have an easy way that will allow you to carry multiple ladders on your enclosed trailer, however, none of them mount to the roof and tilt down for loading/securing. I recommend using the Pack'Em Ladder Rack part # PK-28WL2-BM as this will be your best option. The Pack'Em ladder racks attach to the exterior walls of your enclosed trailer and will allow you to carry up to 2 ladders on each side of the trailer without having to climb up on the roof to secure them. As long as your ladders...

  • Can PackEm Ladder Rack PK-28WL-BM Be Installed On Interior Of Enclosed Trailer
    Although the description says the Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Exterior Side Wall of Enclosed Trailer, part # PK-28WL-BM says it is for enclosed trailers, it can be mounted on the inside if you wish. The upright beams that the ladder hooks are attached to measure 46-1/2 inches end to end so you will need to make sure you have sufficient room to install this system on the inside of your trailer.

  • Mounting the Pack Em Ladder Rack to my Van.
    The Pack Em' Ladder Rack part # PK-28WL can be mounted to just about anything with the right hardware. Typically they are designed to attach to the Pack Em' Rails part # PK-BM In your case I would be concerned with the strength of the steel you were mounting to. If you were to reinforce those areas to ensure that your hardware would not pull out you can use them where you want. You will notice on these that there are brackets that point towards the mounting surface to go around the rails....

  • Can The Pack'Em Ladder Rack Bracket Kit PK-28WL Be Mounted to A Wall?
    The Pack'Em Ladder Rack Bracket Kit # PK-28WL is typically mounted on something like the Utility and Enclosed Trailer Tower Kit # PK-BM, but could be adapted to be mounted on a concrete wall. However, as these typically mount on a tower/post, they will need some modification to be able to do so. I included a picture of the brackets that will need to be removed if you choose to go this route. I do also have to mention that the included hardware will not be able to be used. With that said,...

  • Can The Pack'Em Ladder Rack Brackets Be Used To Carry Pipe?
    Yes, the Ladder Rack Bracket Kit # PK-28WL can be used to hold pipes, and conduit as long as you are not exceeding the weight capacity of 75lbs for the set. Since the 6" schedule 40 has a external width of 6-5/8" it would have to be deformed to fit inside the 6-1/4" width of the bracket. You will need the Trailer Tower Kit # PK-BMH to mount on the Malone Lowmax trailer.

  • Best Bang For the Buck Ladder Rack for Trailer
    The best ladder rack for you will depend on the type of trailer and where exactly you're wanting to carry the ladders. If you have an enclosed cargo trailer, and you want to carry the ladders on top of the trailer, the Rack 'Em Fitz All, part # RA-28 which has a 400 lb capacity is what I'd recommend. If a 200 lb capacity would work for you, the # PK-28B bracket kit (would require you to provide your own 2x4 lumber for the crossbars) would be a good choice. If you'd like to carry the ladders...

  • Pack'em Ladder Rack Tower Thickness Differences and Weight Capacity
    The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH towers are made of a heavier steel due to it having limited mounting points to fit on a utility trailer. This is why the steel is heavier to better support the weight of the accessories being carried. This does not allow for any extra weight to be loaded on the brackets. The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BM being designed for use on enclosed trailers will allow you to mount the towers at the top and bottom therefore it does not need as much structural...

  • Recommended Trailer Ladder Racks That Mount To Side Of Trailer
    It sounds like you are looking for the Pack'em Ladder Rack for Exterior Side Wall of Enclosed Trailer # PK-28WL2-BM which mounts the ladders to the exterior side of an enclosed trailer. This rack will support ladders up to 6-1/4' wide weighing up to 75lbs. If you have utility trailers you will need the Pack'em # PK-28WL2-BMH instead.

  • Base Width of MaxxHaul Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70386
    The MaxxHaul Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70386 will fit a rail width of between 52 and 71 inches, depending on how the vertical uprights are oriented. This unfortunately means that the rack isn't wide enough to mount to the rails on your utility trailer that are spaced apart by 78 inches. I'm not sure exactly what you are wanting to add the rack for but another option is with the Pack'em Ladder Rack, which comes in a 2 Ladder # PK-28WL2-BMH or 1 Ladder # PK-28WL-BMH model. These towers...

  • Comparison of Packem Ladder Racks # PK-28WL2-BMH and # PK-28WL2-BM
    The difference between the Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH and # PK-28WL2-BM has to do with the specific tower kit that is included with each set. The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH includes the Tower Kit # PK-BMH which is made of heavier gauge steel for more heavy-duty applications on an open trailer. They are simply designed to hold more weight. The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BM on the other hand includes the Tower Kit # PK-BM which is a lighter-duty set that's more designed...

  • Pack'em Utility Trailer Rack System To Carry Trimmers On One Side and Ladders On The Back
    I have one solution as the Pack'em Trimmer Rack Arm Kit # PK-6S2 will not mount on the back of the Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH. You can install the Pack'em Trimmer Rack # PK-6 and attach the Ladder Rack Bracket Kit # PK-28WL to the opposite side to carry your ladders.

  • Can Pack'Em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH be Used to Transport Lumber or Other Materials
    The Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Side Rail of Open Air Trailer # PK-28WL2-BMH is designed to haul ladders but can also be used for similarly shaped items such as lumber or the sticks of rebar referenced in your question. The maximum ladder (or similar object) width that the rack can secure is 6-1/4 inches. The length will depend on how far apart from each other you are able to install the ladder hooks on your trailer. You will need to find a wall stud on the trailer wall for attachment of each...

  • What is the Longest Ladder the Pack-EM Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH Can Support?
    The Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Side Rail of Open Air Trailer - 2 Ladder # PK-28WL2-BMH is not rated by the length of the ladder but rather by the maximum weight of 75 lbs per ladder. Although this gives you a max capacity of 150 lbs for the rack, you will still be limited to 75 lbs per ladder so a single ladder weighing 95 lbs would not be compatible. The length of ladder will only be restricted by the trailer maneuverability with the ladder loaded.

  • Can Pack'Em PK-28WL2-BM Ladder Racks Be Installed in Interior of Enclosed Cargo Trailer

  • Can the Pack'em Ladder Rack PK-28WL2-BMH Accommodate Two Large Ladders?
    The Pack'em Ladder Rack for Side Rail of Utility Trailer - 2 Ladder # PK-28WL2-BMH should have absolutely no issues holding the Little Giant Ladder as well as a 23 foot long Gorilla Ladder. However, with as wide as these to ladders are, they will most likely not be able to be mounted on the same side of the post. With that being said, this is not a problem with the # PK-28WL2-BMH as it is designed to able to accommodate this style of mounting.
