When you need room to roll to the jobsite with oversized materials, a Hauler Racks Universal Cap Rack gives you tons of space. Lengthy ladders, huge pipes, rough-cut fence posts—your Universal Cap Rack can bear almost any burden. It comes in 2 styles rated to carry either 300 lbs or 600 lbs of your freight.
Gone are the days of rusty, bulky steel racks. Hauler Racks builds your Universal Cap Rack from pure anodized aluminum. This miracle metal delivers the strength of steel yet greatly resists rust and won’t stress your suspension with its weight. What’s more, this rack installs using galvanized and stainless steel hardware for an extra defense against corrosion.
When Hauler Racks says that their Cap Rack is universal, they truly mean it. You can choose between 2 mounting options to work with almost any flat-top camper shell. The side-mounted rack’s arms pivot to 60° and 90° angles to work with straight or angled caps, and the top-mount rack’s feet pivot to conform to your cap’s shape. Best of all, both types are backed by a 1-year rust warranty.
Our 8+ Hauler Racks Universal Cap Rack customer reviews have an average rating of 4.50 out of 5 stars. To see specific reviews about your vehicle, please select your year, make and model from the drop down above.

I live in Hawai'i where everything rusts so first off, I bought $38.00 worth of stainless bolts, nut, and washers to replace the zinc hardware that came in the box. Went together easy and was impressed with the fit and finish of the heavy gauge aluminum. Larger reinforcing pads inside the shell would have been nice. I would buy this item again if I ever get a new camper shell.

This item was actually easy to install. I wish there had been some instruction, however, on where on the cap to locate the rack. It appears (and by the bolt sizes) that it should be mounted to the aluminum cap body, not the cap framework. That wasn't good enough for me, so I utilized the cap framework for mounting due to strength concerns. I did have to go buy longer bolts to do this. (up to 3 in. from the 2 in. provided) Haven't used the rack yet to haul kayaks, so we will see how it goes.

I just put my racks on half an hour ago and it took only about an hour with two guys. My canoe didn't fit at first but with the easyness it took to move the sidebars, it was a piece of cake. This rack will work excellent for my canoe. Thankyou very much.

I looked around quite a lot for a reasonably priced, light weight product that would fit my periodic need to carry various loads. This rack is sturdy and easy to install, and though there's some play in the hinge, it's not a problem. I made some plywood braces that install inside the cap, through which the mounting bolts are fitted, which sit on and help transfer loads down to the bed rails. The rack is very clean and polished. The posts do sing a little at highway speed.

I found the unit itself easy to install, and very sturdy. The whistling was very surprising, but I just taped over the bottom of the front rack, and that stopped it completely! My install was a bit complicated in that I have a dual level cap! This will hold my canoe just fine.

Hello Mark, this part does not include the colored shell, only the metal rails which fit onto your existing shell.flag Accept Answer
