Try our Truck Racks

I am the safety officer for the Maine Forest Service, Forest Protection Division. One of our Forest Rangers was recently in a serious rollover accident and only received minor injuries. I think that your canoe rack may have saved his life. I've attached a picture showing how the rack functioned as a "roll bar" and kept the roof from caving in. The driver of the truck and I are personally very grateful for the quality of your product and will continue to encourage their placement on all our Forest Ranger trucks.

I purchased one of your truck racks for one of our fleet vehicles. The vehicle was in a serious accident and as you can see in the attached photo the rack was the only thing to survive the accident unharmed. I have since replaced the truck with a new one and have included a photo with the original truck rack mounted on it. I believe that if it wasn't for the strength of the rack the driver would have lost his life. Thank you for a quality product I will never own another truck without one of your racks on it.

I recently purchased a Katahdin Truck Rack through W. A. Messer in Westbrook. It was a custom model with stake pockets open. Excellent workmanship and solid as a rock. The aluminum diamond plate between the truck and the rack is a classy touch.  Best of all, it is "Made in Maine".  Many thanks!

I have been with the Passamaquoddy Warden Service for some 14 years. My choice would be Katahdin Truck Rack and its products.

The best dam racks on the market as far as I'm concerned.
