Camper shells are ideal for keeping your cargo protected from foul weather, blistering sunlight, and 5-finger discounters. But, that security comes at a price because hard shells greatly limit your rig’s ability to haul ladders, lumber, and other oversized materials. For a big boost in carrying capacity, bolt on a Hauler Racks Utility Cap Rack.
The Hauler Racks Utility Cap Rack breaks through the cargo barriers of your camper shell by creating a second level of storage space on top. With a built-in cantilever, this cap rack spans all the way from your tailgate to the front of your cab. Cap Rack only partially covers truck beds under 6'6". And, it’s three powerful cross arms provide enough backbone to shoulder up to 1000 lbs of gear.
Unlike those ragged, rusty steel racks you see on jobsites, Hauler Racks Cap Racks are virtually rust proof. They’re constructed from anodized aluminum with galvanized and stainless steel hardware to fight off corrosion. They’re custom sized for a sure fit on your truck, and they mount securely to your bed rails with only minor drilling. Backed by Hauler Racks’ 1-year rust warranty.

Had I installed the rack as prescribed the rear cab doors would not clear the diagonal braces between the front support and the rack. The diagonal supports also contacted the rack directly beneath one of the spacers between the bottom and the top rail of the rack. This forced me to drill an additional hole in the diagonal brace farther to the rear in order to get a bolt through the brace and rack. Overall I'm happy with the rack and will recommend it to my friends.

I had a mount on the sides and top of camper Hauler for 8 years and loved it. Not much drag, a little hissing whistling around 45mph. The new around the camper has a lot of drag I can now see the truck bed twisting on the freeway and it's LOUD. Its very tight, every bolt, but it creeks and moves a lot. Very flimsy. I would not trust getting close to the weight rating at all. Thinking about a return.

The rack was not only shipped on time but three days earlier than promised. The clear cut directions made it very easy to install. This is a nice looking rack. In fact the only aluminum cabover ladder rack I could find that mounted on the outside of the camper shell. The folks at Autoanything were very professional, knowledgeable, and quick to answer any question. You can't ask for much more when you have a great staff, dependable shippers, and a greatproduct. I will highly reccomend your company and this product.
