Serial # LR-000000220740 compatible with 1983 chevy g20?
Will Weather Guard brand from Knaack Mfg. Co., Crystal Lake, IL., trio of ladder racks, 5 1/2 feet long, Serial # LR-000000220740 fit on a 1983 chevy g20?
Chevy made a body style change to the G20 (now called the Express) in the 1996 model year. The rack our customer should use is the 205-3 (2 crossmember) or 216-3 (3 cross-member). They are compatible with Chevy vans before and after the body style change.
The 216-3 is only compatible with the 1996 and newer body styles.

how much wight can we put on this ladders racks
can you send me the address to nearest store where can buy this
We do not publish a weight capacity for this product, Reasonable care must be taken not to overload the item.
The Weather Guard ladder racks are very strong, contractor grade racks designed to carry ladders, scaffolding, building material and the like. As long as the rack is used safely in this way, you will generally not overload it. One thing to keep in mind with this rack is that the main limiting factor with regards to how much weight you can safely carry on the rack is the vehicle it is mounted to and not the rack itself. Users need to be careful not to overload their vehicles themselves. Check the vehicle manufactures' specifications for maximum roof cargo weight.
Also, keeping the load on the ladder rack as evenly distributed as possible and securely fastened are important safety considerations as well.
