Mounting Suggestion For E-track To Aluminum Utility Trailer


I would like to take advantage of the versatility of the E-track system on my aluminum utility trailer, Alumina 6810 HBT. Im looking for suggestions or recommendations for mounting the track to the aluminum deck. I was thinking of using track on the deck and the same track on the under side and through bolting the 2 tracks together at intervals along the length. Thinking of using track on the underside simply because the holes should align. Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated. Tried to attach a couple of photos of the trailer and underside of deck, not sure if they made the message or not Thanks

For your Aluma 6810 HBT trailer, I recommend the Erickson Horizontal E-Track - Zinc Coated Steel - 2,000 lbs - 8' Long - Qty 1 # E19135 along with the E-Track Backing Plate - Zinc Plated Steel - 6-1/2" Long x 6" Wide # BPEZ. This will save you the expense of the dual track and will allow you the flexibility of plates between the braces or around them.

This track also comes in 5 foot sections # E19148, 4 foot # EM19147, and 2 foot # EM59150. I recommend using the E-Track Plastic End Cap # ET8730 to finish your tracks.

For versatile tie downs, I recommend the Erickson E-Track Tie-Off w/ D-Ring - 2" Wide x 8-1/4" Long - 1,200 lbs # E59143 or the rings # 59131 if you already have ratcheting straps. If you want specific E-Track straps, I recommend the Erickson E-Track Strap with Ratchet - 2" Wide x 12' Long - 1,166 lbs # EM59136
