Description

  • Clamps to rain gutter with wide mounting feet
  • No drilling or cutting needed on certain installations
  • Side drop down rack gently lowers and raises ladder
  • Zinc primer with white marine-grade powder coat finish
  • Includes hydraulic-assisted arms and dampeners
  • Patented clamp automatically secures ladder when raised
  • Available in single or dual drop down ladder racks
  • 1,000 hour ASTM salt spray resistance
  • Drops down 15" further than the competition
  • Adjustable rung grips to secure all size ladders
  • Limited lifetime warranty

When it comes to a van rack with function and safety, the Kargo Master Drop Down Van Ladder Rack is at the top of its class. The clamp and lock mechanism drops down so you can load and unload a ladder without climbing on the van. It is available with passenger side only, or dual driver and passenger drop downs.

Kargo Master's EZ-LoDown racks offer added safety and are incredibly easy to use. Whether you use a step ladder or extension ladder, either can be hauled with this rack. The rung grips are adjustable to secure various ladder styles, and the patented clamp system automatically secures the ladder when raised on top of the rack. The Drop Down Van Ladder Racks position the ladder 15 inches lower than competitive models, and the cross bars hang low over the van roof to reduce overall height and drag. The hydraulic-assist arms feature dampeners and rollers on each ladder mount platform to assist in an effortless, controlled operation.

The installation is easy with the no-drill rack feet and self-locking nuts. Wide mount feet attach to your cargo van's rain gutters and are coated underneath to help protect the paint. The superior white powder coat finish is zinc epoxy primed for extra rust and chip resistance, and yellow zinc dichromate fasteners resist corrosion five times longer than standard white zinc fasteners used in lesser quality racks. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty with unbeatable quality. Make your work life more practical with the Kargo Master Drop Down Van Ladder Rack!

Order Notes

Please Note: Before taking delivery on a Common Carrier (Truck Freight) shipment, please thoroughly inspect for shipping damage prior to signing for the shipment. If anything appears to have been damaged during transit, we suggest you refuse shipment. After you sign for truck freight shipment it is very difficult to file a ship damage claim and attain reimbursement.

It was difficult to find a company that still made a ladder rack for the KUV body.

When I found this I was thrilled. It took about 3 hours to install which was very easy. I will definitely purchase more as I replace my trucks.
