Easy, Clamp-On Installation

Clamp on installationClamp on installation close up

Sturdy, user-friendly clamps let you mount this rack to your truck bed without drilling or other modifications. Simply position the bases of the upright supports at the corners of the truck bed and clamp them to lip of the truck's bed rail. Each base is secured to your truck bed rail with 2 clamps.

Crossbar installation

To install the crossbars, slide them into the brackets on the tops of the supports, center them over your truck bed, then bolt them in place.

Sliding Load Stops

Sliding load stops

The load stops can be adjusted along the crossbars to fit your cargo. Simply loosen the bolts on the mounting sleeves, slide the stops to the desired position, then tighten down the bolts. Load stops are designed to prevent loads from sliding around, but they are also great to use as tie-down points for straps (sold separately) when you are carrying lumber, pipes, and other items without rungs that could potentially slide off the rack.

Sturdy Steel Construction

Sturdy steel construction

Steel is highly durable, maintains structural integrity, and does not age or decay as quickly as other materials. A black powder coat finish has been added to help resist corrosion, chips, and scratches and to keep the rack looking new. The nuts and bolts have a yellow chromate plating that helps prevent corrosion.

2007 Ford F-150

Install wasn’t horrible but I can’t imagine removing it often. The stops naturally don’t slide on the rail but can be relocated without tools which is nice. Seems sturdy.

The cons, it’s steel and has started rusting after two weeks in places the paint wore off during install. I will have to clean it up and repaint it to keep it from looking horrible. In addition, the J bolts sit pretty far off the side of my 2007 F150 so the bracket is hanging off the rim inside about an invh. Once all together it doesn’t seem to matter but would be more comfortable if it sat tight.

Overall, it gets the job done but if looking for pretty, get something that doesn’t rust.

After a year, the rack looks exactly the same. The surface rust has not gotten any larger. I have noticed that during installation the brackets did bend up the lip of the bed a little but that could be my error or because of the bed liner. Happy with the purchase still.


The product itself is of good quality. It is a heavy duty truck rack. They say it is adjustable but that is only if you have the wrenches with you. It took several hours to assemble it alone. The bolts need to be a little longer especially on the mounting sleeves and the top of the cross bars. The sliding mounts were quite difficult putting on as the sleeves were very tight, I recommend WD - 40. When it was to the point of installing the cross bars it was necessary to loosen the mounting sleeves and move them. I called customer service and sent several e-mails and received no responses . I plan on using it to carry my kayaks while pulling a travel trailer.

2015 Ram 1500

Great rack for the money. Installation took about 2 hours as I didn't have the right sized ratchet socket pieces in my set. Once on it was great. Solid construction. Took my 14ft stand up paddleboard quite a few times and held up with speeds over 65mph.

2019 Nissan Frontier

I'm extremely pleased at the way etrailer/Erickson truck rack turned out, and how easy it was to assemble, just one glance at the instructions and I was able to put together without even thinking about it. etrailers videos were also very helpful. rock-solid, no swaying or movement, no noise or sound coming from it whatsoever, very aerodynamic. A great accessory to anyone's truck. Thank you again for a great product. I'll be doing more business with in the future.


Rack is extremely strong and easy to install. I used it to support two ladders, 16 ft. and 23 ft. for months. Never any problems with movement or slippage. I noticed a little inconsistent paint coating around the tie downs on the arms. I have small spots of rusting around them. When asked, I suggest this rack to my fellow workers for their vehicles.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado

I bought this strictly for hauling kayaks. The price was great and it is made of metal and not an alloy. Putting it together is a little bit of a pain BUT, once everything is in place and tightened down it is solid! No vibration/shaking from the kayaks/rack as I drive down the road. This is the 3rd time I have ordered from etrailer and have always had someone contact me after the order was delivered to see if I'm satisfied. Excellent customer service and on-time deliveries.


I bought this to make carrying my kayak easier, as it was less than a regular 'kayak rack.' It has also carried bits of camping gear at times. It has performed beautifully and has not interfered with my use of the truck at all. Highly recommended.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Packaging could have been better, parts are scratched but it is a ladder rack so not a big deal. Was also missing one of the plastic plugs on the cross bars.


Rack arrived before the expected promised date. Assembly and instructions were simple and easy to follow.. I appreciate the 800 lbs rating and look forward to the additional storage opportunities.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

This is a very sturdy rack. It handles my kayaks very well. However, these racks we delivered with the box TOTALLY destroyed. Parts were hanging out, and when I moved the box to my garage, parts and pieces fell out all over the place. Several parts were scratched and dented. I am certainly not a satisfied customer.



The rack works well. It has had limited use, mostly for camping kayak. Its starting to show some surface rust. Will need to touch up the painted parts. overall a good sturdy rack for the price. Would I purchase again? Probably not, as I would be looking for a rack that I could use with a tonneau cover.


Overall the rack is well build. With a few improvements this would be 5 start for the price. When I received the rack the end caps on the crossover tubes were missing. This was because the box could not support the weight of the item. etrailer replaced these caps promptly. Very good customer service. When reinstalling these caps I used hot glue. These caps are now secure. Additionally, I added 1/8 foam to all the contact points of the mounting bracket which will help protect my truck.


Only took a couple of hours to install by myself. Fairly simple. Should have no problem carrying lumber this summer.

One year later and the racks have paid for themselves on saved delivery. These racks are perfect for the DIY guy.

2003 Ford F-150

Excellent quality and value for the money. I researched a lot of rack systems and am very happy with this purchase. This is a heavy duty system that should give years of good service. Mounted mine on a F-150 quad cab.

Dave C.


Durable and reliable still. One of the Best Buy’s I’ve made.

2014 Ford F-150

Very pleased with customer service and the product was in excellent condition. On time delivery. Seller was very responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend purchasing from him!


I use this for my kayaks. It's easy to put on and take off and super sturdy. Overall I feel like this is a great product for me.


I have a 2001 Silverado with a soft-topper cover on the bed.
I purchased this rack as it was easy to modify so it would go out side and over the soft topper. It’s worked out fine though it’s heavier and stronger than I usually need. I don’t keep it installed on the truck all the time but it only takes about 10 minutes to put on or take off now. I have only carried two kayaks or a 24 foot fiberglass ladder on it so far but will soon use it to pick up some 26 foot PT 2X10 for a deck ab
Nd expect no problems ,as I said this thing is heavy duty. It doesn’t have the prettiest cleanest lines of any rack I’ve seen, but definitely gets the job done without the premium price.

Ford Five Hundred

I bought this rack to haul two 16' canoes on my truck when I'm pulling our camp trailer. We just finished a 500 plus mile trip to the Sawtooth National Forest in central Idaho. The canoes rode right where I strapped them. The rack, while I was assembling it on my truck, felt a bit shaky. But once everything was tightened up it was rock solid. Easy for one guy to assemble. It can be put together with the side posts in one of two positions depending on whether you want a narrower or wider top surface. The adjustable tie downs are very convenient to get a secure tie. The only word of caution I have is, if you're hauling longer canoes, put foam pads on the edges above the cab of your truck. My experience is, this is a great and affordable rack of good quality.

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

Easy to install (takes about an hour) good quality for the price. using it to carry ladders during the week and kayaks on the week-end. I have a 2016 Ram 1500 with an 8 ft bed, but the rack is pretty universal.


Easy assembly but I had to modify bed liner. Could not use my bed cover after installation. Hardware could have been a better grade. Every came loose and almost came apart. Had to re-torque all the hardware a second time. Stripped one nut from over tightening. Should have come with locking nylon washers. Also started to rust within first week. Will have to re-paint in the fall when I put it away. and put my cover back on. Really looks nice after installation.


I had hoped that the rack would offer a little more height to allow my canoes to clear the cab of my truck. With a little bit of work I came up with a satisfactory solution. The truck has been waiting for a rack for several years. The Erickson rack certainly serves my purpose and is a well made product.

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe

I purchased this rack for the purpose of transporting a 17 ft. aluminum canoe around the Lake Tahoe Basin. It will get it's trial voyage on August 1, 2020. It seems to be very sturdy and was not difficult to assemble. The communication and ordering process was very simple and straigh-forward. Would highly recommend to others!


It's a nice rack that does a great job at a reasonable price.
My only complaint is that the top tubes are not gripped by the bar tight enough and will turn down if you don't have a ladder strapped to them.


Great product! Easy to put together,well made and extremely sturdy. And shipping was very fast!


Sturdy rack. Because it was a somewhat generic fit I had to modify my truck bed lining to get the rack to fit. Was not very difficult. I’ve had zero problems with this rack over the last year. I expect it to last many more years. Great item for the price

2009 Dodge Ram Pickup

1) The black paint has rusted thru in many areas.

2) The J hook bed rail clamps do not align well .

3) The rope cleats are too small for anything larger than twine.

4) Welds and finish are marginal.

I regret the purchase and have removed the item.
