Front End Shelf Kit for Enclosed Cargo Trailers by Rack'em Manufacturing

Enclosed Trailer equipment racks feature a hook design at the top of the rack that allows them to hang from the metal frame runner at the top of the side walls on the trailer for added strength. They are predrilled so that they may be screwed securely to the wall. The unique and durable "Hammered" paint finish will last for many years. The Shelf kit has 4 braces that hang on the wall and includes 8 wood beam sockets that click into the braces at varying heights. The wood beam sockets hold the frame work for the shelves. You can also make the shelves as deep as you want. Works great as a bunk bed kit too!

Video Transcript for Rack em Shelf Kit for Enclosed Trailers Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rack'Em shelf kit for enclosed trailers, part number RA-13. As you can see, it's a sturdy steel construction. It's got a hand-hammered finish on it. It's going to be very resistant to scratching and abrasion, also good corrosion resistance. The cross supports you see here, they've got a coating on those as well. Going to help to resist any corrosion.

Uses the simple e-track-style connection. Really easy to operate, really easy to transition from one thing into another, and very adaptable. Our kits going to provide us with four hanging rails and provide us with eight support brackets, giving us all the hardware that we need to complete two full shelves. You will need to provide your own hardware and lumber to get it installed. As you can see, our shelf kit's nice and durable. It's designed to hold up to about 500 pounds.

One of the greatest features about this shelving system is that underneath we're going to have completely unobstructed access. We don't have to have big support boards that are going to come down. We're not going to have anything obstructing the clearance underneath. Now that we've gone over the features let's take just a minute to figure out how this gets installed. As you can see, there's a nice hook on the back side of it here. That's designed to go right over the top lip on most enclosed trailers.

We've got out of the more flattop-style trailers here that doesn't have that good support up here, so a solution that we've come up with is we've just beveled the backside of a 2x6 here. You'll notice that when we put that on that's going to go right back and really grabs onto the backside of that for us. Now we'll just center it up with the supports that we plan on using. We want to have the same distance between them on both sides so our shelves are going to be nice and flush. Now that we've got our spot picked out we'll start by anchoring it. The nice thing is these are all pre-drilled all the way up and down so we're going to have plenty of options as to where and what we can mount this to.

Now that we've got our side supports installed let's go ahead and get our cross supports installed. Basically it just works with an e-track-style coupler. We're going to pull that in, slide that in and up, push the bottom in, and then we'll wiggle it back down until that lever goes back in, indicating to us that this is nice and secure. Now we'll want to keep our shelves on the same level. As you can see, we can move these up and down the length of the track giving us full adjustability of our shelving. With our two in place we can now grab our cross boards, slide it down into our supports. Then as you can see we've got a couple holes to secure it in place. You can see that's now nice and secure. We'll just secure the other side as well. Now with our first one installed we'll bring our second support in. Now keep in mind the wood you'll need is sold separately. You can pick the size of the boards that you're going to need. You can also pick the thickness of your top. You can customize it to the exact weight that you're going to need to support. We'll just secure exactly the same way we did the end board one here. Now with that in place we can bring in whatever we've decided to use for our top. As you can see, it's a pretty simple process. It's just going to go right into the top and we're just going to secure it into our supports. As you can see, once we've got that secured it really sturdies everything up. We're not going to have a lot of that movement or that wiggle that we experienced initially with our boards rocking in and out. Nice, solid, secure platform. This is going to give us all the support we need to get our job done. A lot of guys like to separate these out to about four foot, use a nice big thick piece of plywood and actually make a bed out of it. Or as we see up here in the front on a v-nose trailer, actually able to build a shelving system in there that's going to work perfectly to get a lot of gear stored up out of the way and not really taking up a lot of our usable space of the trailer. Just like that we've got our shelf nice and secure. Now I've seen some people put a smaller strip of maybe 1/4" by 1/4" wood along each edge. It's going to help prevent things from rolling off or coming off. You can figure out your own solution but that is one thing that we've seen that works pretty well. That's going to complete today's look at the Rack'Em shelf kit for enclosed trailers, part number RA-13. .
