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.

Do you have a question about this Ladder Rack?

  • Replacement Legs and Hardware for Older Thule CapRac 29200
  • For the mounting feet for the older style CapRac 29200 (not the newer CapRac part # TH29200XT) you need the replacement feet part # TH8527646001. If you only have the crossbars then you likely need the hardware as well. The hardware can be found with Bag 1 # THHD80935A and Bag 2 # THHD80936 which I confirmed with my contact at Thule is all you'd need to have the complete CapRac setup.

  • Camper Shell Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for a Ford Pickup
  • 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...

This rack includes everything so it is ready to install. The load stops are also included. The bars are 65 inches long and the capacity is limited to the capacity of your Leer camper shell.

  • Ladder Rack/Roof Rack Recommendation for Chevy Silverado with Camper Shell
  • There's a roof/ladder rack that's made specifically for fitting camper shells like what you have on your 2000 Chevy Silverado. For that you'd want the TracRac CapRac part # TH29200XT which would fit and work well. There's a pretty good chance you could get the Swagman part # S80510 to fit as well but it's not designed or rated for that.

  • Will Thule Hullavator Work With Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack
  • So long as you have spread the crossbars of your Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT at least 24" apart and the edge of the CapRac bars are between 4" and 8" apart from the rack's feet then yes, you will be able to mount the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 to this rack.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For ARE Canopy Short Bed Truck Mount For Use With Roof Basket
  • 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.

  • Recommended Roof Rack to Work with Hullavator on Leer Truck Cap
  • We do have a nice selection of ladder racks that are designed to mount to the top of a truck cap like what you have, such as the Thule TracRac # TH29200XT, however we do not have a ladder rack available that installs on the outside of the bed rails to allow it to fit with a cap or cover. In researching the type of ladder rack that you described, it also doesn't appear that they would be compatible with the Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier # TH898, as they do not feature crossbars that...

  • Yakima makes it pretty easy to install one of their roof racks on a camper like what you have with the HardTop SL rack part # Y01618 which comes with 60 inch crossbars and tracks that are 54 inches long. This has a 220 lb capacity. If you'd rather have the bars install in a fixed point on the roof and not a track we also have the TracRac CapRac part # TH29200XT which would work great. This has an unlisted weight capacity, but TracRac states that as long as you stay under the capacity...

  • Is the Cantilever Extension Compatible with the TracRac Truck Cap Ladder Rack for 2018 Ford F-150
  • 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. The cantilever system is designed only to be used with the...

  • Carrying a 12.5 foot Inflatable Fishing Raft on a 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab with Camper Shell

Since it installs on your camper there is some drilling required which will make it more of a permanent installation, but it will provide a great rack that has a weight limit that is the same as your camper. A roof rack on your Mega Cab might not be necessary since you are planning on using the Yakima LongArm # Y01149-1150, but if you decide to I...
