No Weld Trailer Rack Standard Towers make it quick and easy for DIYers to add crossbar racks on most trailers. They are intended for smooth on-road / well maintained off-pavement towing and have a flare built in for clearing trim / top rails.
When used with 1.5” square steel crossbars, they are designed to handle the dynamic / in motion loads below:
- 4 tower / 2 crossbar setup, a 56” wide roof top tent in smooth on-road / well maintained off-pavement towing or a low, evenly distributed 130 lb load.
- 6 tower / 3 crossbar setup, a 72-76” wide roof top tent in smooth on-road / well maintained off-pavement towing or a low, evenly distributed 185 lb load.
- When setup in camp, they have no problem supporting a RTT and occupants.
Standard Towers have an overall height of 10 1/2" and are 9 3/4” from the attachment holes to the top.
Towers must be attached to a rigid, structurally solid vertical surfaces on your trailer. Installing requires measuring, marking and drilling 5/16” holes.
For sheet metal trailers such as M416s, we offer backing plates to reinforce the attachment points on the opposite side.
We offer 1.5” square steel crossbars for use with towers. There are also channel style aluminum extrusions and crossbars available from other suppliers that work with them.
Towers come bare steel requiring painting to protect from rusting. Note; bare steel parts may have a minor film of oil/grime, fold marks, scuffs and minor scratches on them.
