We have had to grind the high spots when the steps stuck after the initial install and some shaking down. All seems to be well now, but if they actually worked as sliders, Im sure that would end up with a lot of realignment work after the fact. Again, the "juice is worth the squeeze" on these IMO, as it would be a real bummer for some of my passengers to make it in out...Peace,
MJ

I was at the beach this weekend and saw a roof mount with three cross bars on a 2005 Traverse. The owner told me they had it installed at "Rack N Road" in Costa Mesa, Calif. Looks like your in Venice, Calif. I believe it was a Thule system.

Over the decades I've bought some misc Yakima Rack stuff from Rack N Road; they have always been very helpful and reasonable.....and sometimes they have some nice used rack stuff too....Recommended.....

This is an amazing job, are you in So.Cal? I'd love to check it out in person. I have a 2002 Ford e250 PW Traverse. Thinking about the lift, tires, rack, ladder, etc...

Some upgrades to Karakoram the van

My 2002 Pleasure Way Traverse, via Agile is always seeing little tweaks as we try and find ways to make her more capable and useful. After I couldn't find an aluminum 1/2 rack for the front of the cab, we fab'd one and used the Front Runner brackets, which are really solid. I was able to finally get one of the stalls to gutter mount next to my waterport ladder mounted shower. Swapped some generic front lights for the Baja Designs LP9's--expensive, but you immediately understand why!

Just got back from a great trip to see Pando and Capitol Creek National Park....Thats the latest...Thx for all of the stoke, support and great info on these boards. MJ

That Quick Pitch shower enclosure is really cool! Curious how you mounted the Waterport to the ladder, (with water in it) it has to be close to 30lbs and I would suspect on moderately ruff trails that would be enough to shift any type of "clamping" brackets...ultimately bouncing against the body.
* If (or when) you have a chance would you mind attaching a close up of this application?
