Camper Shell Mounting

The corner brackets included with your CapRac ladder rack are designed to securely attach to the roof of your truck's camper shell. Position the rack on the cap and mark the area beneath the mounting brackets - this is where you will drill into your camper shell. Once the brackets are bolted into place, tighten the fasteners on the crossbars to secure the entire rack. Because the brackets are designed to pivot, the tightening process should be painless and everything should fit together quickly and easily.

Thule TracRac Slotted Crossbars

The sturdy aluminum crossbars on all Thule TracRac ladder racks feature integrated slots for mounting and easily adjusting accessories, such as the included load stops. These slots appear on both the top and bottom of the bars for the ultimate in mounting versatility. Like the pieces that mount in the base rails, these accessories also have quick-release knobs that let you loosen and tighten them with a mere twist of a knob so that they can be positioned as needed along the bars.

A built-in trip strip at the front of each crossbar shields the slots from wind, maintaining the aerodynamic quality of the bars and preventing that annoying whistle you often find with slotted bars.

Included Tie-Downs

Thule TracRac Load Stop Accessories

Included with your CapRac are four tie-down accessories. These load stops are designed to mount in the slots of the crossbars and slide along them for quick, easy adjustment. The bookend-style pieces help to hold ladders and lumber in place on the crossbars. They also have built-in loops for securing tie-down straps.

Sturdy, Rustproof Construction

The CapVan rack system, as well most Thule TracRac accessories, is constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum. Because aluminum is lighter than steel - the material most often used for ladder racks - only a small percentage of your camper shell's capacity is taken up by the rack itself, enabling you to pack on more weight than you could with a steel system.

Even though aluminum is already rustproof in itself, Thule TracRac has taken the extra step of adding a dual powder coat finish to further protect your rack. The electrostatic powder coat (e-coat) clings to the metal surface better than traditional paint finishes for a more durable covering. The second coat is a clear finish that adds extra shine and protection from scuffs and scratches.

First of all, I love the rack. It is very good looking and very easy to install. I looked for months to find a rack suitable for mounting my RIVERSMITH 2 BANGER fly rod holder. I am so pleased. thank you guys so much!!!! 778241

- TH29200XT

Wonderful. Exceeding my expectations. 719364

- TH29200XT

I really like this rack. It was easy to install and has held up well so far. My only complaint, and the reason for only 3 stars, is that some of the components arrived with some slight dents and scratches, pretty clearly NOT from damage during shipping. Not enough to warrant sending the whole rack back, but enough to be annoying, considering I paid full price. 677956

- TH29200XT

Works great. 666322

Has not leaked and seems to bear loads well. Takes about 10 minutes to remove from roof when going away and need to park in garage. Only issue is slide nuts freeze up. Wd40 seems to free them up.

  • Recommended Ladder Rack for Camper Shell or Truck Cap on 2018 Toyota Tacoma
    The ladder rack system I recommend for the camper shell on your 2018 Toyota Tacoma is the Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT because it gives your Tacoma a quiet, yet strong and durable rack on top of your shell. The Thule TracRac CapRac # TH29200XT has aerodynamic bars which is what is going to ensure the rack makes minimal noise. This rack's strength and durability comes from its aluminum construction and powder coating which makes it resistant...

  • Overall Height of TracRac CapRac part # TA29200
    From the top of the camper shell on your truck to the top of the TracRac CapRac part # TH29200XT will measure 10-1/4 inches. Since the bars are 1-5/8 tall that means the legs are 8-5/8 inches. There's no reason you couldn't cut the crossbars shorter but you'd void the warranty by doing so.

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Hitch Mounted Rack For 2013 Chevrolet Silverado
    With the length of the aluminum rails you said you need to carry, I recommend using a cap rack system along with front mounted hitch and goalpost rack. With the cap rack system you can spread the bars so that you will provide more support. The rack I recommend for your cap is part # TH29200XT. The aerodynamic crossbars help reduce wind noise and drag, and the rack includes load stops that can come in handy. I then recommend installing a front mount trailer hitch like part # C31023....

  • Roof Rack Needed for Leer Camper Shell on a 1998 Ford Ranger
    The roof rack that we have to fit the Leer cap on your 1998 Ford Ranger is the Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack # TH29200XT. This is specifically for camper shells and truck caps and will do a great job allowing you to carry extra equipment. As far as weight capacity goes, the roof rack can hold as much as your Leer camper shell so you will need to find out the weight capacity of your camper shell to ensure that you don't overload it.

  • TracRac CapRac for 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 With Camper Shell
    I contacted Thule for you to find out if it was possible to use the crossbar of the TracRac TracONE ladder rack with the hardware for the CapRac, but they told me they are not compatible. The reason is, the crossbars of the two systems are entirely different in regards to how they mount. So to use a ladder rack on the camper shell of your 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 you would need a new system, the Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT. Another option,...

  • Can TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack # TH29200XT be Removed for Clearance and Leave Swivel Brackets
    Yes, all other components for the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack, # TH29200XT, can be removed while leaving the swivel brackets in place. I have included a snapshot of the installation guide to show how the rack corner attaches to the swivel bracket. All you will need is a wrench to remove the rack corners and your truck can make it's way to the garage for the winter.

  • Recommended High Capacity Roof Rack for Camper Shell on 2002 Toyota Tacoma
    After looking at several possibilities, I found the TracRac truck camper shell ladder rack part # TH29200XT. This rack has a capacity equal to that of the camper shell. I've confirmed the weight capacity with my TracRack representative, who confirms that if your camper shell has a 500 lb capacity, the rack will as well. The rack uses stainless steel hardware, it's recommended that you use anti-seize compound, part # LT37616 on the threads of the hardware.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Leer 122 High Rise Truck Cap
    You were on the right track with the Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT. The Leer 122 High Rise camper shell really isn't ideal for mounting a roof rack, because of the odd shape taking away probably 2 feet of space at the front of the cap, so you'll want to make sure you have 27-1/2" (center of front bar to center of rear bar) and 27-1/2" side to side to install these crossbars. As long as you've got the ability to space the bars and towers at this...

  • Recommendations for Carrying Hobie Outfitter Kayak On Top Of 2015 Ram 2500 Camper Shell
    First, I recommend checking the weight capacity of your ARE Camper Shell. We will want to make sure that your shell will be able to support the weight of your boat, kayak carrier, and crossbar system. For your camper shell, I recommend the TracRac CapRac # TH29200XT for your 2015 Ram 2500. This rack will hold up to the maximum capacity of your camper shell. This rack weight approximately 26 pounds. I have attached an installation video of this rack on a GMC Sierra for you to have an...

  • Recommended Options for Adding Roof Rack/Ladder Rack on Toyota Tacoma Shell Top
    We have a couple of options for you to add crossbars to the shell of your Toyota Tacoma.

One options to provide a rack on your Tacoma's shell is the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT.

  • Was There a Change Between Newer and Older Model TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack
    Thule basically purchased TracRac and changed the part numbers but not the actual bars themselves. So if you have the older TA29200 the # TH29200XT is the exact same. Just the feet of this is not available as a replacement part.

This does require drilling into the cap on your truck but the permanent installation but they do give you a great look that you can utilize to carry your small boat.

  • Recommended Roof Rack Options for Carrying a Canoe on a 2018 Ford F-150 with a Camper Shell/Cap
    To carry a canoe on top of your 2018 Ford F150 Super Crew Cab with a camper shell I first recommend installing the Thule TracRac Cap Rac # TH29200XT. This will fit your cap whether you have a 5-1/2', 6-1/2, or an 8' long bed and has a weight capacity that matches the weight rating of your cap. Then for the cab I recommend using the Thule WingBar system to match the TracRac. This includes the 60" WingBars # TH711520 Black or # TH711500 Silver along with the Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501 and...

  • Camper Shell Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2002 Chevy Silverado
    Best option would be the TracRac CapRac part # TH29200XT. This has more than enough capacity and would easily carry a 12 foot long camper. Going with a truck cab roof rack would be to a bit overkill and would honestly not work as easily as you'd think since the crossbar height would most likely be different. The Malone Kayak Carrier part # MPG1001 would then be a great solution as it is a kayak carrier that is designed to fit channels like what the CapRac has.

    If you are able to and want to just lay the kayaks on a roof rack you can install the TracRac CapRac # TH29200XT onto the truck's camper shell and secure them using ratchet straps like # EM34415. Another option is to add the Swagman Roamer LT # S80510 to the camper shell and then add kayak carriers. The Thule BigStack # Y04041 is a great option to carry the kayaks. The BigStack is basically two posts that mount to the crossbars on the shell that the kayaks are secured to. It includes...

    For your 2018 Ford F-150 with 5.5 foot bed the Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT is what is confirmed to fit the cap on your truck. The cantilever like # TH24002XT although it would fit the crossbar of the system is not recommended to be used because the torque on the feet and mounting hardware of that system are not rated for the extra 24 lb extension and any weight you would add to it.

    To install a basket, the best way is to install a roof rack or ladder rack. For your application, I recommend the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT. You can then install a roof basket to meed your needs, and you most likely will want a shorter one like the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket - 41-1/2" Long x 37" Wide x 4" Deep - 150 lbs # C18115, to meet your height limitations.

  • Camper Shell Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Tacoma
    The highest capacity ladder rack we have for the top of a camper shell is the TracRac CapRack part # TH29200XT, but it sounds like you might more interested in a ladder rack that uses a track for the feet to install like the Yakima Hardtop part # Y01618 which comes with 60 inch crossbars, 54 inch tracks and has a capacity of 220 lbs.

    The add on Cantilever Extension for Thule TracRac SR, G2, and T-Rac Pro2 Ladder Racks part # TH24002XT or the Cantilever Extension for Thule TracRac TracONE Ladder Racks part # TH24001XT will work with the older TracRac. You just have to determine what model you have. Look for a model or serial number on the rack itself.

  • Recommended Aluminum Ladder Rack for Camper Shell
    One of our most universal camper shell ladder racks is the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack # TA29200XT. It can fit on a wide variety of camper shells, has a crossbar length of 65 inches, is made of aluminum, and has a carrying weight capacity that is limited by the weight capacity of your camper shell (or cap). Unfortunately Yakima is not in the ladder rack business as of yet.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for Carrying Kayak on 2018 Ford F-150 with Cap
    There would most likely be a way to piece together a single crossbar for the roof of your truck and one for the cap but it most likely won't work out like you would like it to. The bar heights would be at different heights which means the kayaks might be held at a less than ideal angle and since you want to use a dock glide system that loads from the rear it would be really hard to get the kayak onto the back load bar. Best option is crossbars for the cap like the Thule TracRac CapRac...

These will give you the crossbars you need to attach your Hullivator to as well as any other roof ounted accessory should you need it. This unlike the other will allow you to adjust the bars closer or further apart to allow for different goodies.

  • Ladder/Roof Rack Recommendation for a Camper Shell with Curved Roof
    It sounds like you are looking for a roof rack for either a camper shell or a trailer with an elevation change on the roof of it. Because of that I can't recommend a roof rack that uses tracks since they are rigid and would not be compatible with the bow in the roof line. Because of that I would recommend a different style of roof rack that won't use tracks. For that I would recommend the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack # TH29200XT.
