Rain Gutter Mounting

The corner brackets included with your TracVan ladder rack are designed to securely attach to your vehicle's rain gutters. The lower edge of each bracket fits into the gutter. J-Hooks are then used to hook around the outside edge of the gutter. Once everything is in place, just torque the fasteners down to ensure a sturdy, reliable connection.

If your van's rain gutters are curved, use the included shims on the front and rear crossbars to compensate for the potential height difference. This will ensure that all three of the crossbars will be level so that you can load and carry cargo without worries.

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 TracVan 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 TracVan 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 roof'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.

Easily mount this durable, lightweight aluminum ladder rack to your van's rain gutters. Slotted crossbars allow for quick, simple adjustment of tie-downs and accessories. Sturdy, clamp-on installation requires no drilling. Load stops included.


Disappointed with the Thule company’s policy. We ordered a pair for our van, upon a representatives advice, and after they were installed we realized we needed a third cross bar. They wouldn’t accommodate our situation. We weren’t looking for something free. We needed to buy one single cross bar. And this was after a customer representative told us we would only need to purchase a pair. They did nothing for us.
I’ll never buy Thule again.
Their customer service sucks

2001 GMC Savana Van

Exactly what I was looking for. Easy Install, Sturdy Construction with the best Weight Rating, and as far as ladder racks go, it looks great! I no longer need to carry my ladders inside my van & move them every time I need to load / unload something, plus I can carry huge A-Frames easily!!


I’ve had this rack for over a year and I must say it’s been very durable, even after a year of rugged work the rack stayed in excellent condition….this is a must recommend


Love this product, I have this holding up this CBD cigarette. WE LIKE TO PARTY!!


This is a great product. It was easy to assemble and install. The load capacity meets my needs well.


Didn’t come with instructions!


Excellent product. I bought a van with these racks over a decade ago and used them hard for over a decade. Ladders, lumber etc. My new van I ordered these racks from Etrailer and got outstanding service in tough times.


Very happy with this roof rack. We have attached an awning and a large Thule roof box without issue.

2009 Chevrolet Express Van

Excellent! Great material! I recommend!


Shipping was super fast!!! We don’t have the roof rack on the van yet but looks perfect.
Thanks for the fast service.


The racks that I bought for my van are amazing and they look good ,very rugged. I recommend them highly. Nice job. Thank you





2018 Chevrolet Express Van

Fast service!!!




The Thule TracRac van ladder racks are strong and well designed. I did not have issues with the fasteners. With careful positioning of the racks on my 2012 General Motors full side van I can carry two 10 foot long/30 inch wide kayaks laid flat such that they touch at the widest point and can still utilize the included sliding tiedowns adjusted to fullest width. I coated the supplied gutter spans (required for General Motors full size vans from 1996 and beyond) with a rubber product to protect the vehicle paint. Precise installation of the racks on a tall vehicle without damaging the vehicle paint takes a lot of time/measuring and is best done with two people/ladders.


I needed a heavy duty rack to mount my roof top tent on and am super pleased with the quality of this rack and highly recommend it!


I could not be more pleased with my purchase- the van ladder rack is well made, and looks great. I had previously ordered some shelving which also was well made and promptly delivered. The only slight issue with the ladder rack was that one of the tightening knobs for the brackets arrived broken, but was easily replaced.


The product looked great out of the package. I have attached them to a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 Van. I haven't used the racks to carry anything yet, but I expect they will perform well.


These are working perfectly for my needs.
added a cargo rack and solar panels to mine. I have 4 tacks on my vwbus,survived the 1000 mile road trip through Baja 2019.
I added more holes to the supports so i could move the crossbars up to accommodate for the curvature of the bus roof.


I do not usually take the time to review purchased items, although I feel I should as I always refer to posted reviews when researching products.So here goes, forgive me English teachers everywhere
I needed roof racks so as usual I searched the web where
I stumbled upon the site.
There I found a product that appeared to be what I needed at a fair price and good quality.

I received the roof racks promptly after ordering and was surprised after opening the box to see the the racks exceeded my expectations.

All the parts were bagged neatly,all the parts were there AND all the parts were either stainless steal or aluminum, nothing to rust!
The quality is excellent,the instructions well written and helpful and the followup from the company excellent.

In this case I highly recommend etrailer and this American made product



Nice product. Great price. Took some time to install but what doesn't. Would purchase again.


Installed these on the roof of a small work trailer one year ago. They are holding up great, very sturdy with a tough finish. Good value for the price,

  • How Tall is the TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack # TA29056
    From the bottom of the rack to the top of the crossbar measures 9-1/2 inches. To determine how tall this would sit on your roof you would need to measure 9-1/2 inches from the rain gutter up.

  • What are the Dimensions of the Crossbars That Come With the TracRack TracVan Ladder Rack
    The dimensions of a single crossbar from the TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack # TH29056XT are 3 inches wide, 1-1/2 inches high, and 65 inches long. If you can send me a picture of the equipment you are trying to install on a roof rack I can see if we have another option if this will not work for your application.

  • Why Should Rubber Strip Be Installed With TracVan on 2008 Ford E-150 Van
    I attached a picture that I took from the instructions for the TracRac # TH29056XT that you referenced that shows the tech tip for the Ford E-150s like what you have. The issue is the shape of the Ford gutter. The strip pushes the J-hook clip far enough away from the gutter that it doesn't reach.

  • Will The Thule Hullavator Work With The Thule TracRac Ladder Rack?
    The Hullavator # TH898 mounts via T-Trac so they would work with the TracRac Ladder Rack # TH29056XT. Depending if you have the new or old Tracrac you may have to trim the spacer of the T-Bolt to get it to fit. If you have the newer model it will work.

  • Roof Rack For 2010 Chevy Express With Hightop Roof
    We do have a solution for you, though there isn't a way to convert the Thule rack you mentioned with your hightop roof. Instead, the best option is a rack from Inno, because it has options for taller rain gutter feet. So, depending on the height of your roof, what you can use are Inno crossbars and either 7-1/2" or 9-7/8" tall feet: - Inno Square Crossbars # INB165 - Inno Feet for Square Crossbars - Rain Gutters - 7-1/2" Tall # INSD or - Inno Feet for Square Crossbars - Rain Gutters -...

    I checked with Thule and there are two of those replacement parts (not no roller) available for your Thule TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack # TH29056XT. By J-Hook I believe you mean the load stop, and while the nut is not brass, I verified it is the correct replacement.

You would need to use the Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars - Fixed Point - Qty 4 # TH460R and the Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet - 3138 # THKIT3138, which would allow you to use your old bars.

  • Recommended Roof Rack Crossbars For A 2022 Chevy Express Van With Limited Garage Clearance
    The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs # RRRL150GMC-2 are 5-15/16" tall while the Inno Feet for Square Crossbars # IN72FR are only 5-1/2" tall. If you choose to go with # IN72FR your roof rack would just sit 7/16" lower than it would with the # RRRL150GMC-2. The Thule or Yakima options available for your 2022 Chevy Express Van are even taller so your best option is going to be the Inno Square Crossbars # INB165 and Inno Feet for Square Crossbars # IN72FR for a shorter roof rack to clear your garage.

    If you were to get any ladder rack like the Thule TracRac # TH29056XT you will not be able to stack roof racks on top of each other, but this rack will fit your 2001 GMC Savana. I see what you're wanting to accomplish but this is not something that manufactures allow. One thing you could do is get something like the Goal Zero Yeti # GZ67FR portable solar system. The power station should fit in your kayak so you can have a charge when you're on the water. It's 7-15/16" long x 5-1/8" wide...
