Expert Answers about Trailer Cargo Organizers


  • Installing E-Trac To Build Shelves In Fiber Glass Box Truck
  • There will still be metal studs behind the fiber glass wall in the box truck, so you want to purchase a stud finder that is capable of detecting metal studs to attach your track to. I am not entirely sure what you are trying to build when you mention rafters but it sounds like you may be trying to build a shelf like in the pictures I have attached. You can use the E-Track Wood Beam Socket part # 59149 and horizontal or vertical e-track (depending on what you are trying to accomplish) like...

  • Parts Needed to Connect Auxiliary 20 lb Propane Tank to Dual Onboard Camper Tanks
  • I appreciate all the information! The part I recommend using is the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting w Hose - Type 1 Valve - Quick Disconnect, Disposable Cylinder Ports # 103615. The Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting will connect in-line between one of your onboard tanks and the regulator, via its pigtail hose, as shown in the attached diagram. The red (Type 1) fitting on #103615 connects to the tank valve and the pigtail from that tank connects to the brass side of the T-fitting. The included...

  • Controllers to Use on RV Solar Panel Setup with 6 55-Watt Panels
  • I attached a help article that covers installing solar panels on an RV but it seems like you are on the wiring of the panels to your RV step so for that you'd need a controller like the # FSCC30PWBBL which can handle three of your panels so you'd need two of them.

  • Yes! We have what you need! For a great shoe organizer for your RV, I recommend the Thule Shoe Organizer - 31-1/2" Tall x 19-1/2" Wide # TH306925. This organizer is made of weather-resistant material and carries up to 10 pairs of shoes. For mounts for your interior of your RV, I recommend the Wall Attachment Pod 2.0 for Thule Organizers # TH306804. If you ever have a scenario where your shoes are muddy are wet, we also carry the strap kit # TH307124 that allows you to attach the organizer...

  • Complete Propane Tank Holder Mounting Kit for 20-lb Tanks
  • For your 20 lb tanks you want to use the kit # 37220BL instead of part # 37230BL that you referenced. The only difference between these kits is the length of the threaded rod that the hold down bar and wingnut attached to. The shorter one is used for 20 lb tanks while the larger is for 30 lb tanks. If you want the option to swap between tank sizes then you can get the 30 lb kit # 37230BL and then also get the shorter threaded rod # 37207-30515. You can see this demonstrated in the...

  • Propane System From Scratch For Custom Trailer
  • Much of this project will need to be completed with threaded iron pipe, flexible copper tubing, and fittings for iron and copper. We do not carry those parts or have expertise in that specific area. However, we can provide you some of the parts that you are going to need. Your two propane tanks will need a place to be mounted on the trailer, usually up on the A frame tongue of the trailer. The common solution is a JR Products # 37220BL Propane Tank Mounting Kit.

  • How Tall is the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit
  • I can't speak to whether or not this is going to fit in your garage or not without knowing at what height they're installed but I can tell you that the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers - 250 lbs # MPG493 are 54" tall. Because this means you're adding 5-1/2 feet to the height of the trailer just with the TopTier, and the J-Pro 2 # MPG117MD adding 16-1/2" I really think this would be a tight squeeze to fit into a standard garage but you'll want to take some measurements to be sure.

  • Availability Of Wire Basket E-Track Mounts
  • I have another option for you, but the mounting brackets used to mount a wire basket on an e-track or x-track rail are not sold separately. To mount a basket on your e-track or x-track rails you will want the CargoSmart Wire Basket for E-Track and X-Track Small # 3481720, Medium # 3481719, or Large # 3481718. Each of these options includes the required brackets to mount the baskets to your e-track or x-track rails. I included a video of the CargoSmart Baskets for you to take a look at.

  • Can the Pack'em Ladder Rack PK-28WL2-BMH Accommodate Two Large Ladders?
  • The Pack'em Ladder Rack for Side Rail of Utility Trailer - 2 Ladder # PK-28WL2-BMH should have absolutely no issues holding the Little Giant Ladder as well as a 23 foot long Gorilla Ladder. However, with as wide as these to ladders are, they will most likely not be able to be mounted on the same side of the post. With that being said, this is not a problem with the # PK-28WL2-BMH as it is designed to able to accommodate this style of mounting.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier For a 14' Fishing Kayak On a 5' X 8' Carry On Utility Trailer
  • I recommend using the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers # MPG493. This will allow you to mount the kayak on the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier # MPG107MD. This will place the kayak above your trailers rear gate giving you more clearance since the kayak will be able to hang behind the loading ramp. With this setup you should not need a hitch extender as the 8' bed of the trailer will position the kayak to stick 3' beyond the bed to the front and rear of the trailer. Your...

  • 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...

  • Can The Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers Be Used On Trailers 5-1/2" Foot Wide
  • I did contact Malone on your behalf and they confirmed you could use the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers # MPG493 for a 5-1/2" foot trailer application. That said, they did have a specific note of caution that they stand behind the 4-5 foot wide capacity as that is how it has been tested and is the best positioned placement for the support tubes to fully support the load bars of the kit.

  • Comparison of Packem Ladder Racks # PK-28WL2-BMH and # PK-28WL2-BM
  • The difference between the Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH and # PK-28WL2-BM has to do with the specific tower kit that is included with each set. The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH includes the Tower Kit # PK-BMH which is made of heavier gauge steel for more heavy-duty applications on an open trailer. They are simply designed to hold more weight. The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BM on the other hand includes the Tower Kit # PK-BM which is a lighter-duty set that's more designed...

  • Pack'em Ladder Rack Tower Thickness Differences and Weight Capacity
  • The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BMH towers are made of a heavier steel due to it having limited mounting points to fit on a utility trailer. This is why the steel is heavier to better support the weight of the accessories being carried. This does not allow for any extra weight to be loaded on the brackets. The Pack'em Ladder Rack # PK-28WL2-BM being designed for use on enclosed trailers will allow you to mount the towers at the top and bottom therefore it does not need as much structural...

  • Will the Single-Bottle Liquid Propane Gas Rack 2020-JR Fit a 30 Lb Propane Tank

The issue will be with the weight of the 30 lb propane tank while full so a better option for you might be the Rack'em Rack for Enclosed Trailers part # RA-1L which is a bit more heavy duty and will also hold your 30 lb propane tank.

This will fit the trailer widths of 72" to 84" so based on what you listed this would work well. I attached a review video for more info as well.

  • You could use a pad style kayak carrier on the Rack Em ladder rack part # RA-28 like the part # RRRWP05 but since the bars are shaped differently than most carriers a cradle style carrier wouldn't fit well.

  • Will Pack'Em Rack for Open Utility Trailers Fit 2' high Sides on Trailer
  • Yes, the Pack'Em Rack for Open Utility Trailers # PK-6-OP1 is compatible with your 2' high trailer sides. The supports don't necessarily have to rest on the floor of your trailer so you can raise them to whatever height is needed for your application. Attached is a picture of how a customer installed just the Trimmer Rack # PK-6 on their utility trailer.

  • Ladder Rack for a 5 x 8 Round Top Carry On Patriot Enclosed Trailer
  • The best option is the Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Ladder Rack, part # RA-28. This rack installs to the top of your trailer's side walls and telescopes to fit up to an 8-1/2 foot trailer with its telescoping design. The kit is capable of holding up to 400 pounds, and is a relatively quick install. The only downside is that the kit is sold in sets of two, and single racks aren't available. I've included a video that details the rack's installation onto a trailer so you can get familiar...

  • What Is Needed To Relocate The Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table?

I've attached a few pictures to assist. One of pin and clips a customer has used, and one of the mounting slots.

  • Why Doesn't E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 Have Weight Capacity
  • The E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 that you referenced doesn't have a capacity listed for it because the wood installed in it would break long before it would. Using it with angle iron instead of wood like it was intended for would make it really hard to give a stated capacity.

  • How Do you Mount the Complete Propane Tank Holder Mounting Kit to the Trailer Tongue
  • Yes it is super simple! The Complete Propane Tank Holder Mounting Kit for 20-lb Tanks part # 37220BL is secured to the tongue of the trailer using self tapping screws. #14 self tappers have always worked out really well and they will go into the three slotted holes designed in the base for mounting to the tongue. Any of the three can be used it just depends on where they align on your trailers tongue. The self tappers can be sourced at your local hardware store.

  • Load Capacity for a Roof Rack on a 2016 Cargo Express Trailer
  • For the 2016 Cargo Express Trailer, I recommend the Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack, part # RA-28. This is a telescoping rack that will go as wide as you need to fit your trailer, and can be fit to any of your support beams provided you have a rain gutter. The maximum load of this rack is 400lbs and is designed to not exceed the capacity of your trailer's support framing, though you will still want to ensure that you are not exceeding your trailer's payload capacity or...

  • Recommended Trimmer Rack for Open Utility Trailer with Round Top Rail
  • All of our Trimmer Racks are bolt mounted, so you will have to custom mount them on a round top rail. You will either have to run bolts through your tube or run U-Bolts around your top tube. For a Trimmer Rack, I recommend the Pack'Em Rack # PK-6-OP1. This holds 3 trimmers, 1 blower, 1 line spool, and one cooler. It is a very nice system with a gray powder coat finish. This does not come with mounting hardware, but does come with keyed alike locks. If you are looking for a more...

  • Could Tow-Rax Corner Helmet Shelf # TWSPCHH Fit Front of V-Nose Trailer
  • Sounds like you are wondering if the Tow-Rax Corner Helmet Shelf # TWSPCHH has angled brackets on the back of it that would match the angles of your V-nose trailer. If the angle of your V-nose trailer is right at 90 degrees then this would match right up and sit flush. That being said this setup allows for a wide range of mounting capabilities so you would just have to fit it to your trailer in the best way based on the application. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Using E-Track and # 59149 Wood Beam Sockets to Construct Shelves in Enclosed Trailer
  • The Erickson # 59149 Wood Beam Socket you mentioned is the only product of its type that we offer. We do not offer a socket that would hold the beam in the way you describe. If you ran short lengths of e-track like # EM59150 on the trailer side walls near the front wall of the trailer, you could use the sockets holding the 2x4s on end going across the front wall of the trailer, but we have nothing that would allow you to run them along the side walls of the trailer.

  • Recommended Crossbars for Standard 5x8 Utility Trailer to Carry 4 Kayaks
  • I recommend the Malone TopTier part # MPG493. The Malone TopTier is designed to add load bars to an open trailer. The steel uprights attach to the side rails of the utility trailer since there is not a roof to attach the hardware to. The uprights install on trailers that are 4 feet or 5 feet wide so they work with your new trailer. The setup is about 4 feet tall so you can add cargo to the trailer as well if you need to. The bars are 78 inches long, so the 4 kayaks fit the bars on their...

  • How to Carry Canoe on 2004 Ford F-150 Towing Coachmen Trailer Trailer
  • Most of the Coachmen Apex travel trailers shown on their website include several common rooftop features like antennas, air conditioners, ducts and vents. The AC units tend to be fairly tall, most about 12- to 15-inches, and racks made for trailer roofs, like # RA-28, are not tall enough to clear these. Apart from that you have the matter of getting the canoe about 9 or 10 feet in the air! I can suggest a better option; using a front hitch on your 2004 F-150 along with a load support...

  • 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.

  • Solutions for Securing e-Bikes Inside Enclosed Trailer
  • I really like the Rack'em Single Hook Rack # RA-8. These padded heavy-duty hooks aren't specifically designed for bikes but they will offer a higher weight capacity that should handle your bikes, especially when using 2 of them per bike to better distribute their weight and hold them evenly on the wall. They normally hook around the top lip of an enclosed trailer wall but you can also just use a 2" x 6" board if you want to hang them lower. With either of the above solutions you're...

  • Recommended Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack System
  • The Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack is an easy to mount, fully adjustable system for your enclosed trailer. It has a 400 lb capacity, but you will want to research your trailer's capacity for a system like this and go with the lesser weight as your maximum loading weight. The rack's telescoping crossbars set it apart as a very easy to install rack that I easily recommend for your application. For use with shorter and longer ladders, I recommend getting two sets to give...

However, I can tell you the spacing of the area between the resting areas of the tanks to give you an idea of how large that is. It is 7.2 inches as you can see on the picture here.

  • Will Trimmers Flip Upside Down During Travel with Pack'em Trimmer Rack

This creates a tight attachment that will keep a standard size trimmer from flipping upside down like you described. I have attached a couple images that further clarify this below.

  • 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.

  • I spoke with my contact at RackEm regarding the ability to upgrade your existing 2 Trimmer System # PK-6S-6S2 to a 3 trimmer setup. He stated that an additional # PK-6S2 will physically bolt to your existing units, but he does not recommend doing this in order to hold 3 trimmers. The reason for this is simply because of the lack of stability the system will provide when adding the additional components. They do offer a complete 3-trimmer system with part # PK-6-OP1.
