Video Transcript for MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van Ladder Rack Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Express Van

Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Express, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van Ladder Rack. This is a 2 Bar steel system with a 500 pound capacity, part number is MT70440. Now the MaxxTow crossbars are fully adjustable, we can adjust these up or down just depending on the roof contour of your van, some of them are a little bit different. You can see we've got a hole here on the side, that'll allow us to attach ropes or maybe like a ratchet strap to secure our cargo down in place. They offer sturdy steel construction and all of our hardware has a corrosion-resistant finish on it just to prevent any of that runoff or that dripping that we sometimes see coming down the side of vehicles with the ladder racks on them. Now we've installed the 2 Bar kit here, that gives us a 500 pound weight capacity. If you wanted to expand this kit, you can go to the 4 Bar kit, which is part number MT70440-2.

That'll up your capacity to 1,000 pounds. And of course, whichever kit you decide on, be sure that you check your owner's manual to see what your rain gutters are rated for and use whichever those numbers are the lowest. Now before we install our forward bar here, we're going to take a look at the way it connects to the vehicle. You'll see we've got the base of our side plate here, that fits right down into the rain gutter. Once that's in the rain gutter, this comes around the outside and as the two of those come together, they're going to get a really nice, tight grab on it. The only tool that'll be required will be a 10 millimeter wrench or socket, just to tighten up that bolt. Now to position it, we'll expand it out slightly.

We're going to bring that across the vehicle so that it fits in the rain gutter on the other side. And we're gently going to push in on this side, so it goes in the rain gutter here. Now we'll measure from a fixed point on your vehicle or in this case we already have our rear bar installed, so we're going to measure from our rear bar forward, to make sure we have this rail square. The nice thing about these kits is that we can set the distance to whatever you require, so if you're going to be hauling lumber, you'll want them a little further apart. Something shorter, you'll want to have them closer together.

And we'll tighten down our bolt on each side. Now as we do this, you'll see the space between the clamp and the gutter narrowing. Once it comes up and makes good firm contact, it's going to have a great hold. We won't have to worry about our rack going anywhere. I'll go do the same thing over on the other side. Now the first time we put our rack on our van, once we have our width set, we're going to tighten down the set screw here, requires a 5 millimeter Allen key or socket.

We've got everything nice and secure, ready to load up and head down the road. Now if you'd like to be able to put these on and take these off, it'll be as simple as just loosening up the four 10 millimeter bolts, taking them off, putting them back on, and tightening them back up. Now with our rack in place, we'll be able to load up our ladder, pipes, anything else we need, get it strapped down securely and we'll be ready to hit the road. That's going to complete our installation of the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Ladder Rack system, part number MT70440 on our 2017 Chevrolet Express.

I order my roof rack and was given a date for delivered product and was deliver a week ahead of schedule and was very impressed. The instruction for the installation of the roof racks were clear and easy to follow. I use the roof rack daily and have had no problems. I am very satisfied with my experience with ETRAILER and will be using them for future materials that they have listed on their web site. Thanks, Dover Flo Plumbing Tony Dover 608860

I am not to big on reviews and I bought this product with the intention of modifying it in order to make it fit on a 2000 Ford F-350 with a topper.first of all asap shipping awsomepackaging and best of all I did not have to modify anything. 25 minutes install time. Thank you. 644885

I ordered the ladder racks because of the price. It was the best price I could find. In the pictures they looked good. When they arrived, they were even better then the pictures showed. They are made of good quality metal and very well welded. The kind I would make in my shop. It seemed that it took longer to get them out of the box, then it took to put on my van. They ajusted and bolted right on top. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a well built set of racks. 609802

Quick shipping. The ladder rack was well packaged. Each metal piece was bubble wrapped, put in a cardboard box that was put in another cardboard box. No transit damage. Installation was easy and quick. Had all four bars installed in less than 30 minutes. Only con is that the little hex nut that locks the bars together rusts like crazy. Will have to put some grease or something on those to stop the rust that is running down the bars and onto my van roof. Go ahead and plan to grease those well during assembly. After running them a couple of weeks I can say they are very strong and will hold anything I will carry. I have put lumber and ladders on and no issues. Also have driven at highway speeds with no issues. Yes, there is wind noise but not as bad as I thought it would be. 424863

These racks are perfect for what I was looking to do. I use these when I need to hall large ladders and wood material that I cannot fit inside my van. They are extremely easy to assemble and install. I have chosen to put them on when I need them and take them off when I don’t need them since this is my work and personal vehicle. They are truly a great product and a very robust design. 591160

Review from a similar MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van in Ladder Racks


Just received this item today. So far the only issue I have is that the packaging was quite tore up. Causing the crossbars to be exposed. Both ends are scratched up pretty bad, down to bare metal, and one set screw is long gone. Not the fault of eTrailer, rather the shipping and handling. No big deal for me as this item will be heavily modified, welded and painted to match the rest of my project. The gutter brackets are surprisingly well made for the cost. Probably be my first choice for future builds. 446112

This is the second set I’ve bought. Unfortunately the quality is worse than the first set. One of the locating tabs was cracked right out of the package. I’ll weld it back together. But this will be the last set of these bars I’ll buy. Moving on to a different design. 492975

The customer service was exceptional. This part was very well built and seems to be very strong. The only issue I had was the bottom of the poles were heavily scratched and a good amount of rust on them. I sanded all the rust off the ends and bottom then had to prime and repaint. Other than the issue of product handling everything was great. 358113

I like that it can be taken off our van, a chevy express, and put on any other van we may have in the future. The sides have peaks but only a worry if you are going into a garage. 715759

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Roof Rack for 1999 Ford E150 Superwagon
  • The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41906 is a fit for your 1999 Ford E-150 Superwagon. It is a fit for 1995-2003 Superwagon models and will install easily with the included hardware. For the roof rack compatible with a Thule Cargo Basket or Cargo Box, I recommend the Inno Square Crossbars - Steel - Black - 65" Long - Qty 2 # INB165 and Inno Feet for Square Crossbars - Rain Gutters - 7-1/2" Tall - Qty 4 # INSD.

  • Roof Rack for a 2012 Ford E-350 Passenger Van
  • There are roof racks that will fit your 2012 Ford E-350, but the Swagman Roamer # S80510 you referenced is designed to work with camper or truck shells and not passenger vans, because it requires drilling into the roof and would be permanently mounted. The roof rack I recommend for your E-350 would be the Yakima rack, which consists of round, 66" crossbars # Y00410 and Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers # Y00101, which, as the name suggests, clamp on to the rain gutters of your van.

  • Could MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van Ladder Rack # MT70440-2 Fit on Exiss Horse Trailer
  • If your horse trailer has a rain gutter along the roof of it the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van Ladder Rack # MT70440-2 can fit it and could possibly be used to carry a few bales of hay. I attached a picture of what the mounting hardware looks like attached to the roof of a vehicle for you to check out as well. The pictures of Exiss horse trailers I found online show them having rain gutters.

  • Will the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van Ladder Rack fit the 2003 Chevrolet Express Van
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van Ladder Rack # MT70440-2 will fit all models of the 2003 Chevrolet Express Van. This rack is a clamp-on installation with no drilling required. The clamps attach to the rain gutters on your van. The hardware is included. I have a video that shows a detailed install on a Chevrolet Express Van.

  • Roof Ladder Rack for an Enclosed Trailer
  • MaxxTow MaxxHaul Van Ladder Rack # MT70440-2 comes with 4 bars. The video on this product, which I have linked for you, shows the installation of the 2-bar version. But # MT70440-2 is indeed a 4-bar system. You could install this system on an enclosed trailer provided that the trailer has rain gutters and as long as the 56 to 77 inch bar length is enough to reach across the roof of the trailer. If your trailer does not have rain gutters then I recommend the Rack'em ladder rack # RA-28....
