Video Transcript for RackEm Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack Installation

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. .

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

Trailer and rack are still smitten with each other. The rack has been a useful, durable addition. Thanks and all the best,

Very easy installation on 10x6 flat top enclosed trailer. The only modification was having to cut about 4.5" off of each cross member bracket to get rid of all the excess height. Plan on using for kayaks, canoes, and anything else that may be to long to stuff into this little dry shack. 586492

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

Solid product, easy installation, only downfall to me was that there was no protection in the packaging which made for the aluminum to get all scratched up. Other than that it's a great product, already have my ladder on top of the trailer rather than ratchet straps them to my truck 554646

The included hardware did have some issues going into the steel structure of the trailer. So did my drill bits. Was able to purchase hardware locally for the ones that snapped. The rack has been great. Supports my solar array fine and doesn't move. 459155

This worked great for my rooftop tent. I could not find what I needed till I saw these. Highly recommend. Easy to install. My utility trailer is small and these worked perfectly. The trailer is 6 x 4. I did not have a cut off saw but Harbor Freight had a cheap one that worked great. I had to modify the rack so the tent could open up. 567806

The rack is nice but it only comes with 2 I called back to see if I could order one more so I could have 3 on my trailer but they said I had to buy 2 more that would leave me with one extra run I am very disappointed that you don’t offer 3 I shouldn’t have to pay extra just to have a spare lying around just so I can get your product to work 573614

Very easy install....Very fast delivery...Light Weight...Easy Assembley...Just installed on 6-27-18 and haven't used yet...However, it's a "Recommend" from me...I do have a suggestion for you though...After install I needed about 18 inches of filler tube to hide my joints. I recieved two (2) filler tubes totaling about 84 inches for a 6 x 12 trailer...My point is I'm throwing about 66 inches of aluminum away...That's a big waste....So on a 6 x 12 trailer you only need to send one (1) 20 inch filler piece....Thank you for a (HIGH) quality product w/fast shipping.... 527595

by:

I was surprised. I watched video after video to make sure this was going to be a good fit for me. I waited a couple days to install and once I put the bottoms up I quickly realized that I would have to modify the the mounting holes. I had to drill new holes lower on the foot in order to make sure I hit the top rail. With that said the rest of the install went well and looks good. I will be adding 2 more but with the understanding I will have to re-drill holes lower to fit my trailer. 454864

are the bars that the ladder lay on adjustable? I have a 5 x 10 enclosed trailer will it fit correctly? Thanks

The cross bars are a telescoping design, so they can fit trailers as narrow as 4 feet and as wide as 8.5 feet. You can set them up at whatever length you need to accomodate the load, so long as you can still properly attach the feet.

my trailer is 16 similar to yours.I am a roofing contractor and use large 32 extension ladders and 20-24 walk boards. Would you recommend me putting 2 sets on, or do you think one set would be enough for all the equipment I intend to carry? Your input would be appreciated.Thanks

It seems if you extend it out to 85 it would make the rack less sturdy. My trailer is 85 wide. What are your thoughts

-- comment by: Vince - 11/17/2014

The crossbars on this ladder rack are designed to be adjustable from 4 feet to 8-1/2 feet, and will support 400 pounds. As long as you can securely attach this ladder rack to your trailer, and the width of your trailer falls within the adjustable range of the crossbars it will work. When extended closer to 8-1/2 feet you may see more flex and movement in the crossbars, but it is rated to support up to the full 400 pounds.

Excellent sturdy rack and easy to install alone (1 person). Just took 2 hours, and more robust that the typical ladder racks. videos on the site were very helpful as instructions in the box were a bit lacking. All necessary hardware was there! etrailer service spot on. 543969



- RA-28
by:

Product is as expected. Good quality. Good packaging. This product "WILL" require a few cuts, for exact fit, so have a good saw capable of cutting aluminum, nice and straight, to have a professional look when you are finished. Also, verify mounting points on both right and left sides to verify locations of screws. Mounting can vary right to left, due to door mounting locations. You will want to mount to areas with frame support (steel structure) for best strength. Also watch out for wiring. Also lights maybe mounted differently from side to side. So verify right and left mounting before you start to drill. I used 1/4-20 hardware because I want to carry bulky items and was concern about wind loads at highway speed. Not sure it was necessary. I think you can be confident to buy this, good quality, product at a reasonable price. 401629

I just ordered this week, received quickly, and installed my aluminum ladder/kayak on my cargo/kayak fishing trailer. Very happy with it. I cut it down 3 inches to make strapping it down possible by standing in/on the trailer. Looks so good I have to wash that trailer. I plan to add racks to the inside to hold my fishing poles and, install a vent with fan, and maybe hang a hammock. Wrapped plumbing pipe foam insulation wrap on the crossbars to cushion the yak. Installation instructions were spot on. I recommend this rack to anyone. I think the price was reasonable and weld quality is superb. 411355

I am very happy with the racks! They were very easy to install (one person less than 30 minutes). We live and work close to the ocean and after one year they show no signs of rust or wear I need to order one more as I have found myself over loading just the two. As a building contractor, I highly recommend this product and e-trailer! Even the delivery came the day it was scheduled. Thanks e-trailer 345865

The racks themselves are strong, and we'll designed. The welds are good and they're relatively easy to install. My only complaint s are that the diagonal braces on the uprights had holes punched in the middle of each. The problem with that is water can get in them without anywhere to go. To remedy this, I drilled a small hole at the bottom of each for a drain spot. The other complaint I have is the crossmembers have grinding marks all over the end of them where somebody ground down the welds where the inner and outer crossmembers was adjoined. The metal is rough there like a blind person did it (thinned and wavy). I don't even understand why they had to grind it that much, just to flatten out what was probably tack welds. I'm sure they're not all like that, and they'll still do what I need them to, and it wasn't reason enough for me to send them back, plus I needed them asap because I don't have ladder racks on my truck anymore. I would have given them 5 stars if not for those things. etrailer.com was easy to deal with. They're very professional, and notified me when they shipped, and had them to me when they said they would. I will definitely order more things from them in the future. 683337

This is my second ladder rack from you folk's and I see you beefed up the cross bar bolt's which is good...Thank You.

I am throwing about 67 inches of Aluminum (Filler Pieces) away again just like before, I only need about 17 inches...My trailer is six feet wide...Sincerely not complaining it's just something ETrailer should find a solution for..I'm just one person so, 67 inches x 80 customers? I will buy from you no matter what so, Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to your customers... 661295

I purchased these on Tuesday evening and received them Thursday afternoon. Working by myself An hour and a half later I had them installed. Super easy to install. I put each section together first and extended them to the approximate measurement. I took two 5 gallon buckets and flipped them upside down on top of my trailer then set the rack across them. I installed screws on one side then making sure it was straight installed screws on opposite side. Repeating the same steps on other rack . 635115

This is a very good looking well made rack..BUT IT DOESNT COME WITH INSTRUCTIONS,! So, if you happen to be an engineer like my husband you’re good to go but; the description when ordering also does not indicate how tall the rack is...problem AND e trailer recommended this rack for use with a ROOFTOP TENT on top of a cargo trailer. This rack has uprights because it is a ladder rack so you will have to CUT OFF THE UPRIGHTS. All in all if you don’t have the capacity to BUILD WITHOUT INSTRUCTION( although they are available online) and MODIFY the rack for use with a rooftop tent....it’s a quality product. 2 stars for inefficiency 634392


Comments

Were sorry to hear that the instructions were not included, they should have been. Because this is not a trailer model-specific item, the instructions are by necessity very general in nature. If youd like a copy, please call us at 800-298-8924 and wed be more than happy to get you a .pdf copy. We list all the dimensions of the rack, including the uprights in the product description, which can be easy to miss if you do not scroll down the product page far enough.

Overall great rack however the mounting screws leave a lot to be desired. The longer screws provided broke every time I attempted to screw them into the steel frame on the trailer. Ended going to the hardware store and buying 1/4 in stainless bolts instead. Would be a 5 star purchase if it didn't require additional trips to the hardware store to buy adequate mounting hardware. 611366

  • Easy to Use Ladder Rack Options for an Enclosed Trailer

I recommend using the Pack'Em Ladder Rack part # PK-28WL2-BM as this will be your best option.

  • Recommended Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack for 6 x 12 Flat-Top Trailer
  • It is not difficult to cut down the height of the vertical struts on the Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack # RA-28. This rack features aluminum construction that makes it both lightweight and easier to cut to size than a steel rack. This system is great for flat-top enclosed trailers as long as they have a rain gutter installed at the roof line. In the install video our techs did trim off about 5-inches of height from the bottom of the strut's top half (they are a 2-piece assembly)....

  • How Much Can Be Cut to Lower Height of Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack
  • The Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack # RA-28 that you referenced can indeed be cut down a bit to bring the crossbars closer to the roof of the trailer. When we installed the system we cut down the support by about 5 inches and this is pretty much the maximum you will be able to trim down without affecting its integrity. Before any cutting the top of the crossbar measures 17 inches from the bottom of the mounting bracket. I have attached a short installation video that you...

  • In the hardware you are using is too long then going with slightly shorter screws is permissible as long as they are the same style and grade as the original hardware.

  • How to Tell if an Enclosed Trailer Has Rain Gutters
  • Rain gutters on an enclosed trailer will be located at the tops of the two sides of the trailer very near the roof. The gutters are essentially concave tracks that run from front to back. If you check your trailer roof where it meets the side panels and there is a smooth continuous path for water running off the roof, then you do not have rain gutters. I have attached a photo of a vehicle with rain gutters to illustrate their appearance.
