Does the EZ Glide 2 come in Black? Can it be ordered in Black

Asked by: Mossy Oak Mike

Are the EZGLIDE2 rated to carry 2 ladders on one side? We have the EZGLIDE2 on our Ford Transit vans and one of our guys wants to put his 8' ladder & 6' ladder on one side of the rack since his extension ladder is on the other side.
