Expert Answers about Detail K2

  • Scooter Carrier for the Back of an RV and a Burgman 400 Scooter
  • I cannot recommend the use of the K2 motorcycle carrier on the back of an RV or converted Sprinter van in this case. The issue is that this carrier, and most others, are not rated for the additional stress and movement associated with being at the back of such a vehicle. But there is an option that is rated for use behind an RV. It is Ultra-Fab carrier # UF48-979033. It is rated for 500 pounds which is very close to the weight you mentioned at 485 pounds. Please verify the weight prior...

  • Headache Rack for a Nissan Frontier
  • I would need to know the year and bed length/cab style of your Nissan Frontier to determine if there are any headache racks that will fit. We do have a rack that is a ladder rack and sort of a headache rack that might work for you. It is the Detail K2 Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack # K2TFR150. It will fit: 2000 - 2004 Nissan Frontier 5 Foot Bed 1998 - 2004 Nissan Frontier 6 Foot Bed 2005 - 2014 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab, 5 Foot Bed without Utili-Track System 2005 - 2014 Nissan Frontier...

  • Truck Bed Ladder Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Tacoma
  • I have a solution for you, but the Detail K2 Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack # K2TFR150 that you referenced hasn't been tested to fit your 2014 Toyota Tacoma so I cannot recommend it for you. For a somewhat similar ladder rack that has been confirmed to fit your vehicle you would want the TracRac Ladder Rack part # TA37004 as I can guarantee this rack will fit your vehicle.

  • Will Detail K2 Flip Rack Ladder Rack Fit a 2001 Nissan Frontier SE-V6/F
  • The Detail K2 Flip Rack ladder rack # K2TFR150 does fit your 2001 Nissan Frontier (5 or 6 foot bed models) and many other trucks so you are good to go! I have included a link to a video review of this ladder rack for you.

  • Is there a Ladder Rack that Will Fit a 2006 Chevy Avalanche
  • Because the Chevy Avalanche has a unique bed design, there are no ladder racks that will fit it. What you can do is add a roof rack, see link, and also use a trailer hitch, like # C13422 if needed, and use the Thule Goalpost, # TH997, and achieve the same effect. Or, you could use a universal roof rack single bar, # DTA968, the hitch, and Goalpost, which would be more economical than a complete roof rack.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier for Kawasaki Ninja 650r On 2015 Mazda CX-5 650r?
  • For a hitch mounted carrier, your best bet would be the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, part # UF48-979033. The Class III hitches we offer for your CX-5 all have a 525 lb tongue weight capacity. This means that the weight of the bike plus the weight of the carrier you're using can't exceed the tongue weight capacity. With a full tank of gas, your bike weighs about 460 lbs, and when the 45 lb weight of the carrier is added, you'll be very close to that tongue weight capacity so you'll want...

  • Can Detail K2 Bike Rack # K2BCR490 be Used to Carry Kids Bikes
  • Yes, kids bikes can be used with the Detail K2 bike rack part # K2BCR490. I attached a picture that shows the rack carrying a kids bike for you to check out. The adapter bar seen in the picture will make carrying the smaller frame bikes much easier. The best adapter bar we offer is the part # UB01 which would fit and work well.

  • Spare Tire and Tire Mount for Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer
  • You can get a tire and wheel combo to use as a spare for the Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer - 7-1/2' Long - 1,640 lbs Item # K2MMT5X7. The trailer uses 5.30-12 load range C tires and a wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. So for a spare you can use # AM30850, # AM30820, or # TTWAS53012WS45HP. To mount the spare I recommend attaching Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier - Fits 4- and 5-Lug Wheels Item # FSTC1000301 to the frame at the front of the trailer.

  • Does a 2014 Ford F-150 Have Enough Tongue Weight Capacity to Carry a 387 Pound Motorcycle
  • Since there are different configurations of the 2014 Ford F-150, it is going to depend on the specific model. The vehicle will have its own tongue weight capacity, some models may have a higher capacity than others. So knowing that ahead of time will help since it would not help to add a hitch with a high tongue weight capacity of the vehicle cannot handle that much weight as well. So if you can get an F-150 with enough tongue weight capacity without a factory hitch then you could install...

  • Height of Headache Rack Above Bed Rails on Detail K2 Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack K2TFR150
  • My contact at K2 was able to confirm for me that when their Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack # K2TFR150 is installed on your 2013 Nissan Frontier (King Cab, 6-foot bed without Utili-Track system) the headache rack portion's top will be a minimum of 24-inches above the bed rail. This dimension applies to the lower-height installation option. Please refer to the linked photo. The folding rear bar will be just below this level, at about 23-inches, when it is in the load-carrying position,...

  • How to Replace the Winch Strap of a K2 Snow Plow
  • We don't have a video that details how to replace the strap of your K2 Winch like part # K2RASP8219, but I did speak to my contact at K2 and he gave me a brief description of the process. On the winch there is a u-bolt that needs to get removed after feeding the strap all the way out. He said this is pretty obvious and easy to do. Next, there is a pin holding the strap to the spool. On the side of the winch there are a couple of holes. You will need to line the pin up with one of the...

  • Are Additional Parts Required to Install K2 Plow Light Kit K283026LB2
  • As long as you have one of a Rampage II # K2RAMP8219, Storm II # K2STOR8422, or Summit II # K2SUMM8826 plow you would not need anything else to install the Light Kit part # K283026LB2.

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for the Back of an RV
  • I checked with K2 and you are correct the K2 Tilt Down Motorcycle Carrier part # K2TMC201 has been rated for use behind an RV or travel trailer. They offer two versions of this carrier, one without taillights like the part # B04100-1 and then one with taillights that we don't currently carry.

  • Recommended Snow Plow for 2004 Dodge Ram
  • One of the most popular snow plows we carry is the Detail K2 Rampage II # K2RAMP8219. It measures 82 inches wide and 19 inches tall and can be used at 5 different angles. It's also electric and includes an in-cab switch and wireless remote to control it. To install the Rampage II onto your 2004 Dodge Ram you will need the mounting brackets. If your truck is a Ram 1500 you'll need part # K284311, and you'll need part # K284312 if it's a 2500 or 3500.

  • Trailer Hitch Mounted Carrier for a 325 Pound Yamaha SMax Scooter
  • The Detail K2 motorcycle carrier # K2TMC201 or the Rage carrier # SMC600 are the 2 carriers that I recommend for a scooter like your Yamaha SMax. Both of these carriers have a solid track so the smaller wheels of the scooter will not fall through. I have linked videos of both carriers for you. For either carrier the trailer hitch and truck must both have a high enough tongue weight capacity. For the K2 the tongue weight capacity will have to be at least 500 pounds. For the Rage carrier...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for the Back of a Class A Motorhome
  • RVs and motorhomes have a very long distance between the rear axle of the vehicle and the back of the vehicle. Because of this bumps in the road are greatly exaggerated back there. So anything mounted on the hitch will experience a much harsher ride. To the point certain hitch accessories just aren't rated for it. There is a solution for you though. The Ultra Fab motorcycle carrier part # UF48-979033 is very similar to the # SC2001 and Ultra Fab has assured us that this carrier can be...

  • Towing a Motorcycle and a Pop-Up Camper
  • The only motorcycle carrier we have which can be used behind a pop-up camper is the Detail K2 # K2TMC201, though in order to be used for your 450 lb motorcycle, you'd need a hitch with a tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs, and unfortunately the highest rated hitch we have that will work with a trailer is the Curt # C13701, which has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. We do not carry tow dollies for motorcycles so I am unsure of their maximum tongue weight, but if you find one...

  • Using a Ladder Rack and Toolbox at the Same Time on a 2014 Chevy Silverado
  • With the Detail K2 ladder rack installed, # K2TFR150, the clamps that hold the base to the truck bed would get in the way of a toolbox. What could possibly work for you is Rola rack # 59742. If you where to clamp the front part back behind the toolbox it could work.

  • Recommended Snow Plow For 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The snowplow I recommend for your 1996 Grand Cherokee is part # K2RAMP8219. This plow measures 82-inches wide and 19-inches tall and includes an in-cab switch you can use from the comfort of your cab. Or you can use the included wireless remote to raise or lower the plow. You can manually adjust 5 angles of the blade for easier plowing. The custom mounting brackets, part # K284102 are included along with the mounting hardware.

  • Using the Detail K2 Tilt Down Motorcycle Carrier on a 1997 Lincoln Town Car
  • I would not recommend using the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier on your 1997 Lincoln Town Car. From the research I have done, your vehicle probably has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. Once you add the weight of the motorcycle carrier and weight of the item you are carrying you will probably exceed the limit of 200 lbs. I would recommend checking your owners manual for the tongue weight and trailer weight capacity of your vehicle and looking into a small trailer. If you...

  • Recommended Snow Plow and Mounting Brackets for 1997 Ford F-150
  • The snow plow I suggest for your 1997 Ford F-150 is the Detail K2 Rampage II # K2RAMP8219. It uses a remote controlled electric winch to adjust the plow. It also has springs so the plow will lean forward when it comes into contact with an unseen object. This will protect the plow and your truck. To mount the plow you'll need # K281512 if your truck is a 4-wheel drive model or # K281511 if it's 2-wheel drive.

  • Yes, the Detail K2 Rampage II Snowplow # K2RAMP8219, along with the Custom Mounting Brackets # K286621, are confirmed to fit your 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. The brackets will be a bolt-on installation to your Pathfinder's frame and will allow for good ground clearance to avoid curbs. The plow itself features a nice 5-position blade that will push snow straight ahead, right, or left. This is an extremely nice setup that will work perfectly on your vehicle. All of the necessary hardware...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for Use Behind an RV
  • The ride quality at the rear of an RV is much rougher than that of a passenger vehicle. This is largely due to the longer distance between the rear of the vehicle and rear axle. It's like the difference between sitting at the front of a school bus and the much rougher rear seats at the rear. Due to the additional bounce and movement back there not all bike rack manufacturers are willing to approve their bike racks for use on RV's. We have several racks that are approved though. I attached...

  • Scooter Carrier Recommendation for Use on the Back of a 2013 Leisure RV
  • K2 Tilt Down Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # K2TMC201 is not rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer so it is not going to work for you. But we do have a carrier that is rated for RV use, it is # UF48-979033. Scooters are typically shorter in terms of wheel base compared to motorcycles so you should be able to mount the heavier end of the scooter closer to the center of the carrier which is definitely what you want to do anyway. Also I recommend over securing this set up because...

  • Can Detail K2 Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack # K2TFR150 be Permanently Installed on Bed Rails
  • The Detail K2 Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack # K2TFR150 that you referenced is designed for clamp-on installation using the four supplied clamps. These grab the underside of the bed rails to secure the rack's tracks, as shown in the linked video. Certainly it is possible if you prefer a more secure installation to drill holes in the track and the top of the two bed rails to allow for a semi-permanent installation. Although this modification will void the warranty it should not be at...

  • Can the Upright Mast of the Detail K2 Bike Rack part # K2BCR490 Fold Forward and Back
  • The upright mast of the Detail K2 part # K2BCR490 can tilt forward and back slightly when you remove the lower pin. It would not fold all the way down in either direction though as the pin that stops it from falling all the way back also prevents it from going fully in the opposite direction.

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a Hyundai Electra GT 2014
  • First thing you will need on your 2014 Hyundai Elantra is a hitch. For that I would recommend the Draw-Tite part #24905. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch opening. For a lightweight cargo carrier compatible with your vehicle you would want the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18145. This carrier weighs in at only 29 lbs and should do well for you. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.
