This is a very good ladder rack. It’s made of very strong steel, very sturdy. I like the bunny attachment holes that can be used for a padlock. Installation wasn’t bad, my only suggestion would be to include a few more bolts of different sizes, if it came with the right size bolt would be 5 stars,had to go to hardware store in the middle of the install to get the right size bolts. This rack will make it easy for me to bring longer ladders to the job site. I probably will buy an extra set of hooks to be able to carry 2 ladders.

Had the rack a year, very sturdy and doing good, holds ladders, lumber you name it. Good purchase

Arrived as told. Good Quality racks. Will work well on the cargo van to carry long ladders.

Great quality. Has been working well for my sons needs.

Using in a little different situation then advertised. Cut rails to length and they work as described. Heavier duty quality than I expected for the cost.

- PK-28WL-BM

Worked perfectly for me, 5 X 8' enclosed trailer similar to the one in the video, mounted the hooks a little lower so that a 10' step ladder would fit and clear the fender, but still had room at the top to install a 10' piece of 4" pvc pipe to use as for conduit storage (I used 4" 2 hole straps to mount to the rack). I researched ladder racks for awhile before settling on this one and I am glad I did. The side rack is also much easier to load/unload than a rooftop model.

- PK-28WL-BM

great product but the video showed to mount bolts where the outside screws were in lines although this makes sense the outside screws did not line up with the support beams of my wells cargo trailer so drilled holes from the inside out . the bolts with the kit were way to long so purchased the correct length at the hardware store this had nothing to do with the product itself but only the installation .the product itself was fine.

- PK-28WL-BM

Great product. Installed ok. The bolts are about 4.5 inches long but only threaded for the last inch. So I had to install more plywood spacers rather than run to the store for different hardware. I have a 24' fiberglass extension ladder and it holds tight just with the included bungee cords. I recommend this product. Much easier than trying to lift that ladder on top of my trailer.

- PK-28WL-BM

I like the racks. They are durable and look good too. Still nice and shinny after a year. Best of all I liked the customer service . I would recommend etrailer to anyone.

- PK-28WL-BM

Outstanding quality and finish. Easy installation with 2 people. Exactly what I needed in order to carry a ladder on the side of my enclosed trailer.

Super easy to install, strong, and shipped fast!!

- PK-28WL-BM

I bought this for my husband to put on his enclosed trailer to haul a ladder for work and he loves it! It was easy to buy, the shipping was free and fast and to install it was a piece of cake. It seems to be really strong too and he's very excited to have it and use it. Thanks!

- PK-28WL-BM

Just installed today looks great love the adjustability of it it’s heavy duty will work great

- PK-28WL-BM

Sturdy and easy to install.Bungy cords are a little on the small side for extention ladders and bolts are only zinc bolts so was a little concerned about rusting.I had purchased my own bolts for that reason and also because the bolts that were sent were too long.

- PK-28WL-BM

Good quality and fast shipping very happy with my item.

  • Can PackEm Ladder Rack PK-28WL-BM Be Installed On Interior Of Enclosed Trailer
    Although the description says the Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Exterior Side Wall of Enclosed Trailer, part # PK-28WL-BM says it is for enclosed trailers, it can be mounted on the inside if you wish. The upright beams that the ladder hooks are attached to measure 46-1/2 inches end to end so you will need to make sure you have sufficient room to install this system on the inside of your trailer.

  • Easy to Use Ladder Rack Options for an Enclosed Trailer
    I do have an easy way that will allow you to carry multiple ladders on your enclosed trailer, however, none of them mount to the roof and tilt down for loading/securing. I recommend using the Pack'Em Ladder Rack part # PK-28WL2-BM as this will be your best option. The Pack'Em ladder racks attach to the exterior walls of your enclosed trailer and will allow you to carry up to 2 ladders on each side of the trailer without having to climb up on the roof to secure them.

  • Best Bang For the Buck Ladder Rack for Trailer
    The best ladder rack for you will depend on the type of trailer and where exactly you're wanting to carry the ladders. If you have an enclosed cargo trailer, and you want to carry the ladders on top of the trailer, the Rack 'Em Fitz All, part # RA-28 which has a 400 lb capacity is what I'd recommend. If a 200 lb capacity would work for you, the # PK-28B bracket kit (would require you to provide your own 2x4 lumber for the crossbars) would be a good choice. If you'd like to carry the ladders...

  • Ladder Racks For Trailers and Trailers with Crossbars
    The Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack # RA-28 has the versatility to fit many of our trailers even though they are not enclosed. The Pack'Em Ladder Rack Bracket Kit for Enclosed Trailers # PK-28B would also work, but the sides are not as sturdy as if there were an enclosed roof frame already in place, so using these systems will have weight limits that aren't accurate for that custom application. I've attached a link to our trailers for you. If you don't specifically need...

  • How To Carry A Ladder On the Back Of a Travel Trailer
    The best way to carry a mobile ladder on the back of a trailer is with a fixed ladder like the Stromberg Carlson RV Exterior Ladder part # LA-401 and a carrier like the Stromberg Carlson Lawn Chair Rack part # LA-104. If you don't want to install a ladder which is very versatile might I add then you can mount the Pack'em Ladder Rack for Exterior Side Wall part # PK-28WL-BM to the exterior rear wall on the trailer. That said, they don't really offer any bolt-on ladder carrier options for...
