The Cross Bar System for Utility Trailer is a complete kit that allows you to retrofit your utility trailer with a pair of load bars. These load bars are perfect for carrying sports related equipment such as kayaks and bikes, but can also be used as a general purpose storage level for things like lumber and ladders. In a way, adding this cross bar system to your trailer is like adding a second floor to your home - it gives you a whole new level of storage space. One of the best aspects of this cross bar system is its strength and durability. The system is constructed using heavy-duty galvanized steel that is designed to last for many years and is backed with a 5-year warranty. The galvanized steel makes this cross bar system immune to rust, so you can leave it outdoors and get salt water on it without any worry at all.
One of the best features about this cross bar system is the height of the crossbars. When attached, the crossbars will stand 54" above your trailer. This leaves plenty for storage space on the bottom of your trailer for things like ATVs, lawn mowers, etc. The width of the cross bars is modular and can fit either 4ft or 5ft wide trailers which covers the typical width of most utility trailers on the market. The load bars on top of the system are rectangular making them excellent for use with sport racks. You can treat these load bars exactly like you would treat load bars on a car roof. For instance, if you wanted to carry a kayak then you could use a kayak roof rack like those found here: Kayak Roof Racks.
Installation is easy and the kit includes all mounting hardware and detailed instructions. Each upright is mounted to the trailer using a pair of U-bolts that clamp on to your trailer's side railing. One important thing we want to point out is that the U-bolts included are designed to attach to trailers with angle iron side rails. Angle iron is metal stock that looks like an "L" shape. If your trailer has round or square side railing, please understand that you will have to perform some handy work and probably buy new U-bolts to make this kit fit your trailer.
