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.

Video Transcript for Thule TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Thule TracRac TracVan Ladder Rack.It's available with two crossbars, part number TH29055XT, and three crossbars, part number TH29056XT. This lightweight aluminum ladder rack attaches to your van's rain gutters. That way, you'll always have the ladders, the lumber, the conduit, and any other accessories you need for the job.It includes four loadstops that are adjustable within the crossbars' t-slot. So, you can secure your load. I've gone ahead and removed our ladder. So, we can go over some additional features.

In addition to the loadstops, the channels can be used for tie-down loops and other cargo management options. The elliptical crossbars are 65 inches long and they're streamlined to minimize wind resistance.The steel towers raise our crossbars up about seven and a half inches. This is great to make room for things such as lights. The towers are adjustable along the crossbar to fit vans of different widths. Customers on our site compare this rack to the ROLA Haul-Your-Might V2 Van Ladder Rack.

Both mount to the rain gutters on your van, but Thule's peak adjust along the crossbars to match your roof size. The ROLA's length adjusts by telescoping the bars. Unlike the Thule rack, the ROLA does not have adjustable loadstops.There's also no track on the ROLA to accept additional accessories like there is on the Thule. The Thule has a 500-pound weight capacity with the two-crossbar version, whereas the ROLA's is 300 pounds. In summary, the Thule will be a more premium option and the ROLA, more of an entry-level option.

It's easy to install, it simply attaches anywhere along your rain gutters on your van that you want. The included shins adapt it to your rain gutter. With everything in place, we can take the included tool and tighten it down. We can repeat the same process on the other side. Both crossbars install the exact same way.Once it's all installed, you're ready to load up your ladders, lumber, or any other elongated items you choose.

Once your load is in place, you can adjust your loadstop in to secure your load, just loosen it, reposition, and tighten it. Then, you'll, of course, wanna secure your load. We have plenty of strap options here at etrailer.com, then you're ready to go, and that's gonna complete our look at the Thule TracRac TracVan Ladder Rack.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Ladder Racks

  • 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.
