Today on our flattop enclosed trailer we're going to be installing the Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack, part number RA-28. Here's what out enclosed trailer looks like with the Rack'em Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack installed on it. On this particular trailer there is two sets of the Rack'em Enclosed Trailer Ladder Racks installed, that's two kits of the part number RA-28. You will notice that this is a flattop style trailer. The racks themselves have been cut down approximately 5" to lower the ladder racks closer to the roof of the trailer. While this is not necessary it will make things a little easier to load things onto your ladder rack because of the height of this trailer. Now that we've shown you what our rack system looks like let's go ahead and show you how to install it. On this particular trailer the customers requested that we put the rear ladder rack as far back as possible, because of it's height it will make getting the ladders up on top a little bit easier.
This screw right here that secures the rain gutter in place is in the way and it doesn't allow our rack to sit flush up against it. We're going to remove this and actually reuse this hole as one of the mounting location holes. It works out this way on both sides of the trailer. Before we mount any of the ladder rack pieces to the trailer we want to come inside and make sure that there's steel right in this area where you'll be screwing the brackets into. Now you'll notice on this trailer our wires run along there as well so you may need to move the wires out of the way on your trailer if they're in the area that you'll be drilling and putting the screws attaching the ladder rack. With the help of an extra set of hands we'll go ahead and set our ladder rack up on top of the trailer. It's a good idea to predrill the hole so that in case if you would hit a weld on the steel structure of the trailer it doesn't ruin the screw.
We're going to line it up with the hole that we just predrilled out. Now that we have our rear ladder rack installed here on our trailer, we've gone ahead and connected our camera to that rear ladder rack section. Now we'll go ahead and build out our next three ladder rack sections that we'll be installing on this trailer. Again, we'll be installing two of the kits so there will be a total of four ladder rack sections. Now we have all of our ladder racks attached to the roof of our trailer. Now you will see here's the screws that come through the steel frame here at the top and that's what is securing the ladder rack to the roof of the trailer.
You'll also notice that we have the wires here that are tucked down below where our screws come through so we didn't damage anything. Each of our locations looks similar to this one here. That will do it for the installation of the Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack part number RA-28 on our Flattop Enclosed Trailer. .

These ladder racks were excellent, as expected. Very easy to install, even for someone like myself who had never installed a set before. They're very sturdy and we have no issue with loading multiple ladders on them. On top of that, the customer service when I called in to place the order was excellent. They took my order quickly and shipped out the same day, plus emailed me a tracking number. I would definitely buy these racks again. 157058
Excellent product. Great fitment in the rain gutter system on my trailer. My only reason for giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because I did not receive enough hardware to mount the racks to my trailer and second the stainless self tapping screws were no strong enough to make it through the tubular steel on the inside of my trailer and about half of them ended up snapping off. Went and bought galvanized self-tappers and had no issues. Overall great product, just would suggest using different hardware. 246694

I installed the Rack'em RA-28 on a 6x12 enclosed equipment trailer specifically for keeping extension ladders on site with my trailer. My previous set-up (ladder rack on my truck) meant when I was offsite so where the ladders. These ladder racks where incredibly easy to install, I was able to install them in about 45 minutes without help. They are extremely sturdy as well. Two were adequate for my needs (predominately 40' & 28' ladders on the rack). 179927
This product was perfect for my 6'x10' enclosed trailer. It took about 2 hours to install with all the hardware included. My only complaint is that I was using an impact drill and I twisted off a couple of the bolt heads, my fault. I ordered them on a Tuesday and received them on Thursday. The e-mail confirmations and on-line tracking tools are excellent. Top notch service from start to finish. I'm definitely ordering from here again. 139712

Great product, well made and wonderful craftsmanship on the welds. Went together easily. Shipped extremely fast. 1 complaint, they're too tall, i ended up taking 8"out of mine because i wanted them low to the roof (for looks and easier loading and off loading of ladders.) It required some decent modification to get them that low. All in all i am a very pleased customer and would do business with them again! 193545

Very good quality super easy to install was done in about 40 minutes. Super fast shipping I just messed up putting legs on backwards on one crossbar but that was an easy fix. 157465
Ordering was simple. They shipped it fast! And it was so easy to install that I did it by myself. ( might not be recommended though). I would definitely recommend this product! 153690

The racks arrived at our door 4 days after ordering. They're exactly what we were hoping for to carry our kayaks. The racks are sturdy, well made, and will look great on our new trailer. We looked at a lot of other products but this one met all of our needs without alterations. We're pleased with this product, would buy it again, and will suggest it to others. 207384

This is a well designed, well built product. The craftsmanship and welding details on the aluminum structure are excellent. Although our trailer did not have supports anticipated by the rack design, we drilled a center hole in the 4 lower attachments and bolted each to a metal stud. I am confident the rack can be modified to work with virtually any trailer. 199914

I received ordered and received (2) sets of the RA-28 Trailer Ladder Rack System for our 16' construction trailer. The installation was a snap and the quality superb. I couldn't have been more pleased with the product and service. Thanks for such a great and affordable product. And thank you Niki for the outstanding service. 190558

Very quick shipping, the ladder rack installed very easily with no issues. Great quality, I couldn't be happier! Thanks guys 139562
Product was of high quality and well made ! It fit my 6x12 cargo trailer very nicely and is sold at a fair price. Only problem was the box that held my new trailer rack was nearly destroyed during shipment ! Some how the parts made it without any significant damage . ( this was shipping company's fault ! not Rack'ems ) 237135
by: Bernie F06/09/2015
The rack is exactly as it is represented. It is heavy duty, adjustable, east to install and if you are looking for a great rack for your enclosed trailer - look no further. Also - I have ordered many things from E-Trailer - always fast service and great people to deal with. They do it right! 201998
The product is great. I am now ready to start hauling my equipment thank you the racks look great 54290
by: Frank C.06/14/2013
Sturdy aluminum racks that are of a basic design. Easy to install and will do the job that they are intended to do. I was quoted by a local company of more than double for the same style of equipment. Racks were shipped and received very quickly. They are on and already at work!! Thanks! 84745
by: A2Z Construction04/08/2015
Our order arrived very quickly and was packaged well, the plastic it was warped in smelled horrible though and it was the same in all 3 boxes . Product itself was great. Follow up emails & customer service were all great as usuall. Thanks again 184106
by: Ernie T.10/23/2012
Awesome product, installed in about 1 hour. Worked exactly like I wanted it to. Recommend getting ladder stops, ladders slide and tends to be harder to control because of the height of rack...etrailer has the stops, i just need to order them. 57938
by: Steve S.03/19/2014
Shipped fast, great product. Installment was easy once I got a metal cutting blade for my miter saw. My trailer is only a 4x6 and I had to do a lot of cutting. No pics yet but it turned out great, very solid Thanks Steve S. 121324
by: Dean O.01/12/2015
It was way too high to fit in a 8' garage door with the rain gutter of the trailer at 73" plus 22"…it would have caused significant damage. I had to do a lot of cutting to get it lowered. 168681
I thought that the racks were excellent easy to install had them installed in about 45 minutes and cost about $70 cheaper than any place in my town will do business with this company again 199547
by: Kevin H.06/21/2012
Great product!! Very lightweight and easy to install by yourself. I installed in about 45 minutes on my hallmark enclosed trailer. Product construction is superior and built to last. 45106
This is a great product. I recieved it timely and was able to install it easily. I have used it now for a couple of weeks on my trailer to haul a large ladder and it is great. 228512
I like the design. It will work great on my enclosed trailer. Wish you sold this item in sets of three or singles. I am very satisfied other than that. Thanks Jonathan Wilz 74310
by: Jarod A. Pompeii01/11/2016
The only thing I did not like about this purchase was the mounting hardware. Other than that it looks good, quality seems to be good and all in all it was easy to install. 235188
Great product I installed it on a 18 ft enclosed trailer. The Install was quick and easy, i did it by myself. the package was short 5 screws but was a easy fix. 157658

by: tom k07/22/2015
I am very happy with the rack ... ...However...I did break 1 (one) long screw and was short 2 (two) short screws for the covers. It did it's job. tk 213545
Easy to install, I did have to modify the installation. I haven't used it yet. It feels sturdy and for what I am going to use it for it will work great. 76300
by: David A.03/09/2011
Really Easy to install. I installed these on a 5x10 Cargo Trailer. They were 4" too wide for my trailer, but were very easy to cut to make fit. 8829
