Will the Erickson Ladder Rack # EM07705 Fit My 2021 Honda Ridgeline?

Question:

Can you let me know what the min/max width that the support beams can reach on a truck bed? I have a 2021 Honda Ridgeline RTL with bed dimensions of 60L x 50W. Will this fit the 50inch width?

I have a great solution for you. Unfortunately, I confirmed with Erickson that the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Load Stops # EM07705 is not confirmed to fit your 2021 Honda Ridgeline with bed dimensions of 60"L x 50"W. In addition, we currently don't carry any truck-bed ladder racks that will fit your vehicle.

For a great alternative solution for transporting a ladder rack or other long cargo, I recommend the Rhino-Rack T-Load Extender # RTL002 along with a single crossbar on your cab. If you have factory crossbars already on your cab, you will be able to use the crossbars with the ladder. If you have a bare roof or raised side rails, I recommend the following setups.

If you have a bare roof, I recommend these parts:
- Yakima JetStream Crossbar - 60" # 8880652 (silver) or # 8880649 (black)
- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Naked Roofs # Y00146
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06152
- (optional for extra security) Yakima Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07202

If you have raised factory rails, I recommend the following parts:
- Yakima JetStream Crossbar - 60" # 8880652 (silver) or # 8880649 (black)
- TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Raised Side Rails # Y00147
- (optional for extra security) Yakima Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07202

This single crossbar setup along with the Extend-A-Truck will allow you to transport a ladder or other large cargo on your 2021 Honda Ridgeline. For securing straps for your cargo, I recommend the etrailer Cam Buckle Cinch Straps w/ Buckle Protectors # E98876-4. I went ahead and attached a photo of a neighbor that used the GoalPost with a single crossbar to haul a ladder.

The Extend-A-Truck will be able to attach to your factory 2-inch hitch receiver on your Ridgeline.
