Video Transcript for Yakima 1A Raingutter Tower Side Loader Mounting Brackets Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at and installing Yakima Side Loader Mounting Brackets for the Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers, part number Y08002. These brackets are going to allow camper shells that don't have gutter rails to work with roof-mounted racks that are for gutter rails.These are designed to work with the Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers, part number Y00101. You can use different size round bars. The ones we're currently using are 58 inches, and they're part number Y00409. These can be mounted any distance apart that you desire, and they'll work with bike racks, kayak carriers, cargo carriers. The bracket measures 5-3/4 inches long, 15/16 inches wide, and 13/16 inches tall.

Your towers will sit right into the gutter rail. Your clamp will fit underneath, and you just tighten it down.Our customer Tom purchased these, and this is what he had to say. "Side loaders are the only product I have found to secure racks to camper shells. Very secure, no water leaks into shell. Quality product."If you're comparing these to other camper shell mounting options, there are top loaders with railing.

Those are nice because you can adjust the spacing, whereas these are permanently mounted in the spacing that you've chosen. However, the top-mounted railing does have the issue of potentially caving through the top, whereas these are more rugged, attached to the side. Also, placing the mounting point further apart helps increase its rigidness.Included with your kit, you're going to get two raingutter brackets. You're going to get a rubber seal that goes between the bracket and your camper shell. You're going to get a large, rectangular washer that's going to help clamp it to the inside of your camper shell and prevent it from pulling through.

This is great when comparing it to other kits that don't have this. They just use washers. This is a much larger surface area than those, so it's going to be much more rigid, especially on a fiberglass camper shell.To install our hardware, you're going to need a half-inch socket, a 5/16 drill bit, and a tape measure to help you line everything up, make sure it's even. Each camper shell is going to be slightly different, so you're going to have to line yours up to find that appropriate spot. The way I like to do that, we'll put the brackets on our gutter towers.

Then we'll tighten it down. We're going to do this on the other side as well.We'll set our bars on top our camper shell in about the position we want them to be mounted. We want to make sure that both sides match up, so you want to find some reference points. We're going to use the top of our window glass molding here and the front of our camper shell to help line this up. We're going to measure from there to there and make sure that it's even on both sides and also that it's the same distance from the front of the camper shell on both sides.Once you've got it lined up and even on both sides, we're going to make a mark around our bracket using a little paint stick. We're going to do that on both sides. Can then take your bracket . We're going to line it up with the marks that we made. We're going to mark our drill point. You want to do that on both sides.We'll now use our 15/16 drill bit to drill out our markings. I'll clean off the area. You can go ahead and clean the paint stick markings that you made off as well. Put a little bit of silicone around the hole. That'll help seal it up to prevent any moisture from leaking into your camper shell. We'll take our bracket. Put the rubber strip on the back of it. Slide our hardware through the bracket, these little carriage bolts. We'll push those through our holes. We'll do that on the other side as well.We're now inside of our camper shell towards the front. Here's our two bolts with the silicone on that we pushed through. We'll now put our nut plate on. That'll slide over both of our bolts. Now, if they're not pushed through far enough to get both the lock washer and the nut on them, you can thread the nut on first on each one. Use your half-inch socket to pull the bolts the rest of the way through. Then we can take our nut off, one at a time. Place on our lock washer and reinstall the nut. Then we'll do the same on the other side. Now we'll tighten them both down. Then we'll repeat that same process on the other side.You can now put your crossbars into place. Make sure that your overhang is even on both sides, and tighten down your gutter foot towers. The kit comes with one set of brackets, one for each side, so if you want to mount two bars on your camper shell to be able to mount things, you'll need to purchase two kits. You'll install that same kit on the rear in the exact same way. When you're installing these, you do want to keep in mind that you want to keep the bars at equal height, or keep your rear crossbar slightly higher than your front crossbar.Now that you've got both your bars installed and adjusted, you're ready to load them up and hit the road. That completes our look at Yakima Side Loader Mounting Brackets for the Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers, part number Y08002.

I purchased the Yakima side loaders for my Leer Camper shell that's on my 1995 GMC K1500. These match up with my 1A rain gutter Towers and are strong enough to use with the larger 70" round Yakima bars. Both sets I ordered arrived to California in a few days and were complete with all necessary parts. Thank you for an excellent purchasing experience. 909478

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Accessories and Parts

  • Yakima Side Loader Mounting Brackets Weight Limit
    I contacted Yakima on your behalf who confirmed the overall weight limit for the Side Loader Mounting Brackets for Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers #Y08002 system is 220lbs so the tent and other items or people shouldn't exceed that total limit. That is a dynamic weight limit meaning in motion it should not exceed that weight. At the same time Yakima does not test for what the stationary weight limit would be either. Another potential option is the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack with...

  • Yakima Raingutter Tower Roof Rack Parts for Truck Canopy
    I am happy to report that the hole spacing on Yakima Side Loader Mounting Bracket kit # Y08002 is indeed 4-1/8-inches center to center. Please refer to the linked photo. To complete a rack with these mounts you can use the 1A Raingutter Towers # Y00101, Lock Core kit # Y07204 and a set of Yakima round crossbars from the linked page. We have many lengths available, such as 58-inch bar set # Y00409. Other sizes are available too.

  • Yakima Raingutter Mount Roof Rack for a In-Bed Truck Camper
    The wide body mounting brackets # Y08001 have a larger surface area in contact with the camper which makes them more stable especially for roof rack systems with very long bars like yours. Based on that I recommend going with the wide body option. For a set of 4 Raingutter towers use # Y00101. The longest bars available are 86 inches long exactly, # Y00420. The towers will lean in towards the center of the truck camper some so that will help you to be able to properly set up this system.

  • Do Yakima Artificial Rain Gutters have to be Positioned in a Certain Place on a Truck Camper Shell
    When mounting artificial rain gutters like # Y08002 to a camper shell, there is no specific distance apart they must be placed. What you will want to look at is where you can mount them (the strongest points on the camper shell would be ideal) and how far apart you need them to mount various items like bike racks, canoes, kayaks, cargo boxes, baskets or any other accessory. Just remember that if you place the bars too far back then items on the roof may hang over the back end too much....

  • Do the Yakima Side Loader Mounting Brackets Have a Weight Capacity Rating
    The capacity of the Side Loader Mounting Brackets # Y08002 is going to be limited to the bar capacity or roof capacity, whichever is lower. In general, the raingutter feet, # Y00101, and crossbars will have a 165 pound capacity. You will need to consult the vehicle owners manual or manufacturer of the vehicle or item you are installing this on to determine the capacity of it. Always go by the lowest capacity.

  • How to Pick Out Yakima Roof Rack for a Truck for a Crossbar on the Roof of Truck and One on Camper
    For a set of Q-towers you would want the part # Y00124. The raingutter towers are sold individually so you would need a quantity of two of the part # Y8810137. For a pair of artificial rain gutters you would need the part # Y08002. Since I don't know the year of your Toyota Tacoma I can't really recommend a fit kit. So your best option would be to run your truck through our roof rack fit guide so that you can see what the correct fit kit would be for your vehicle. Also, the correct...

  • Are Thule and Yakima Rain Gutters Basically the Same Thing
    The reality is that both the Yakima and Thule artificial rain gutters were designed to mimic the same thing so they would work between each other. The rain gutters they tried to emulate is a universal design. So either the # TH542 or # Y08002 would work well.

  • Will Thule Artificial Rain Gutters # TH542 Work with Yakima 1A Raingutter Tower # Y8810137
    The Thule Artificial Rain Gutters # TH542 are roughly similar to the Yakima Side Loader Mounting Brackets for Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers, part # Y08002, but since neither Thule nor Yakima test or approve their own products for use with other manufacturers', compatibility is unknown.

  • Yakima Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Jeep Wrangler
    The difference between the two mounting brackets is that the # Y08001 moves the attachment point for the Raingutter tower part # Y00101 out further to clear a roof that is tall or has steep or square sides. The # Y08002 is the regular one used for roofs that are shorter and have less steep sides. It really depends on the profile of your roof and how high/low you want to install the gutter tower. If you are installing the rack high on the roof you would want the # Y08002. If you...

  • How To Mount One Yakima Round Crossbar On a Camper Shell
    The most cost effective option I have for you to install one Yakima Round Crossbar like part # Y8810023 on a camper shell will be with the following: Yakima 1A Raingutter Tower part # Y8810137 (2) Replacement Hardware Bag part # Y8810136 (1) Side Loader Mounting Brackets part # Y08002 (1) This will give you more parts than you will need but it is your only option as they don't offer all the hardware you need separately sold as a quantity of one or two.

  • Will Inno Feet for Rain Gutters Work With Side Loader Mounting Brackets
    The Side Loader Mounting Brackets part # Y08002 are simply bolt-on artificial rail gutters so they should work just fine with the Inno Feet for Square Crossbars part # INLD. The Inno Square Crossbars part # INB147 would then be compatible with the Inno Feet for Square Crossbars.

  • Roof Rack for a 2000 Jeep Wrangler with Aftermarket Hard Top
    In order to install a roof rack on the aftermarket hard top on your 2000 Jeep Wrangler you will have to do some drilling. You would need to use the Yakima side loader brackets # Y08002, to create artificial raingutters. Then you will need Raingutter Towers, # Y00101, and CrossBars # Y00409. At this time there are no non-drilling options for the 2000 Jeep Wrangler with an aftermarket hard top that does not have raingutters.
