Dual-Sided Loadsrite Ladder Rack, White, NV High Roof

An Upfit Package with Ranger Design


Getting the most from your work van is easy when you choose the right van accessories to help you become more organized and efficient. Good truck and van accessories will always pay for themselves by allowing you to maximize your cargo space and productivity, while also keeping your most expensive equipment protected.
With so many van accessories to choose from, the best way to find which ones work for you is to take some time to consider your needs. All tradesmen work differently, and every trade has their own basic tools. Make a list of all the equipment that you use daily. Consider ladders, large and small parts, and inventory. With a list in hand, you’ll be able to visualize your needs and determine which of the van accessories below will be the most beneficial.

Van Accessories for Organization:

Paper holdersbottle holders and reel holders are designed to increase organization by giving you a specific spot to store your equipment. Instead of rolling loose on the floor, your bottles and reels can be fastened down and within easy reach from the door. As for your paperwork and files, keep them all together in a paper holder where they won’t get ripped or crumpled.
Partskeepers are a great way to keep your smallest parts together and secured. With small, dividable bins, they offer a great storage system to take with you onto the job site. Sturdy yet lightweight, you can never have too many Partskeepers for your tools.
Storage bins are available in several sizes, and can be accessorized with bin dividers. These are ideal for holding items and inventory so you can find what you need quickly and easily. Like the Partskeepers, if you have many items to carry with you on the job, then these bins are the ideal solution.
Hooks come in several different styles and can be used to organize tools and equipment near the van doors to be most effective. Hard hat holders can keep frequently used hats within easy reach and safely stowed while on the road.

Van Accessories for Driver Comfort & Safety:

Lighting keeps the cargo space bright, making it easy to find your tools, no matter what time of day or night. It also eliminates any chance of receiving cuts and bruises when searching through your tools in the dark.
Rear Steps are extremely beneficial for tradesmen with high roof vans. Climbing in and out several times a day can put quite a strain on your legs and back, especially when carrying heavy items at the same time. The steps also provide a rugged grip in the winter, so there is no fear of slipping when getting in or out.
Grab Handles, like the rear steps, are designed to provide you with easier access into your van. Whether installed in a high roof of low roof work van, it is always useful to have something to hold onto. It can also be used to tie down additional cargo for safe transportation.
Flettner vents help protect you from any gasses/vapors or smells that may build up in the cargo area of your vehicle. It helps reduce heat build-up and allows moisture to escape should any materials or tools be stored while they are still wet. It is a simple way to stay healthy while working.
For more products to enhance driver comfort and safety, check out our Safety Equipment blog.
Van Accessories for Vehicle Security:
Lockable Doors and Drawers provide two advantages. They can better protect your inventory and tools by keeping them in one place on the rougher roads. Also, they can deter thieves and protect valuable tools while you’re on the job and your work van is left unattended.
Wire grills for your windows can also protect you against theft as well as prevent damage to the van during loading or unloading. They are an easy install and such a simple product that just might help save you a lot of money in the future.
Seat Covers help keep your work van seats clean and in good condition. Instead of getting dirt and grease on your seats and staining them permanently, use custom-fit covers that can be easily removed and washed. Come time to sell your vehicle, you will be grateful you kept them in such good condition.
Learn other simple tricks to help Safeguard Your Work Van Against Tool Theft.
Consider the demands of your trade and your needs, and invest in the van accessories that will pay for themselves with the time and money they save.

Masterack’s new rear-seat packages recently designed for the Nissan Titan King Cab with rear-seat delete allow convenient storage inside the truck cab. The packages add more organization and ease of access to tools and equipment.
 
Nissan has rounded out its pickup lineup with the introduction of a King Cab for its Titan and Titan XD—a configuration that features a commercial application friendly rear seat delete option.
The rear seat delete—a first for its segment—removes the rear seat, rear heater duct and rear roof-mounted assist grips and adds a flat rear load floor and rear wall finisher with tie-down hooks for secure in-cab storage space.

“This feature is going to be extremely well received by commercial truck buyers for its extra utility and secure, climate-safe storage space inside the cab. It’s a real workhorse like the new Single Cab, but with more flexibility to stow equipment and other valuables,” says Fred Diaz, Nissan division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles.

Tongue Weight Scale | BetterWeigh™ Mobile Towing Scale


This video shows how to use the tongue weight scale feature on the CURT BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale. With this feature, you can get an active readout of the tongue weight of your trailer right on your smartphone. This enables safer towing and easier setup.

The CURT BetterWeigh™ #51701 is a Bluetooth-enabled OBD2 device that wirelessly syncs with your smartphone to provide a variety of vehicle and trailer weights. This includes GCW, cargo weight, tongue weight and pin weight, as well as weight distribution setup and trailer brake gain.

To measure tongue weight with BetterWeigh™, start by choosing the weight range that best suits your vehicle-trailer setup. To set the range, tap the gear icon and select Tongue Weight. Then, select a weight range.

Next, tap the Tongue Weight feature on the homescreen of the BetterWeigh™ app. Before pressing Ready, make sure your vehicle and trailer are aligned and ready to be coupled. Step back from the vehicle and tap Ready. BetterWeigh™ will take an initial reading of your vehicle’s pitch.

Once the vehicle pitch is analyzed, lower the trailer tongue until the coupler is resting on the ball. Then, load your trailer, and start getting active, real-time readouts of how your tongue weight changes as cargo is added. Remember, tongue weight should be between 10 and 15% of the gross trailer weight.

BetterWeigh™ is compatible with Apple and Android phones. Download the BetterWeigh™ app from Google Play or the App Store.

Nissan TITAN vs TITAN XD Truck Comparison

Both Trucks come equipped with a rugged leaf spring suspension with a high capacity rear axle and commercial differential. But the 2017 Nissan TITAN XD frame is larger and extensively reinforced for added strength and stiffness, which helps resist vertical and lateral bending and increases torsional rigidity. Both Nissan trucks come with rack and pinion steering and trailer brake and sway control.
