Dear Gary,

Just got the rack.  I must tell you that it is GREAT and so is your
professionalism!  Although I felt that I was paying a premimun price
for the rack before I saw it I now think that it is worth every cent!

It is so heavy duty and fits so nicely on my van!  You should be proud
if you manufactured it!  It will not only hold my bicycles but will
serve as a wonderful place to carry many other items especially a
trunk for extra camping gear!

I must also comment on the extra special care you did in the
packaging! It was the best packed item I ever got bar none and came
though without a scratch!!!

Finally your response to my email was outstanding and restored my
faith in people especially VW people!

I am a long time member of LIMBO theLater Model Bus club and I am
going to write to them about your wonderful product and your

Take care and if you need a testimonial I am available!

Time to throw some kudos out there for Gary Lee and his Vanagon rear
door racks.

I just installed my rear ladder today and am very impressed with the fit
and finish. The ladder is much lighter than it looks, my struts don't
even know it's there.

A co-worker and myself each just purchased rear ladders from Gary (mine
plain, my friend's with the tire mount). The transaction, from start to
finish, was the way all transactions should go: fast, efficient, great
communication and a day earlier than promised. The packaging was great

Hi Gary,
 Tire carrier (swing away) arrived today, thanks.  It looks fantastic and a wonderful job packing such an awkward item.  I wish there was some place I could rant and rave about your carrier.
Thanks again!


WOW!!!  The ladder looks great.  I can't believe how nice it looks.  You
did a great job in figuring everything out, especially the small bit to level
it out if the ladder is mounted on the sides.

I'll send you some pics in the next couple of days.  Thanks again for all
of  the help...

 The rack (Wide Rack) arrived few weeks ago in good condition and is working great.
Very  easy to install, very simple and well thought out.

Hi Gary,

Just wanted to let you know I received the ladder (w/tire and gas can carrier) this week in perfect
condition.  I have installed it on the Syncro and it's great!  Just what I
needed.  Thanks for a great product and a pleasant transaction.  It's a real
pleasure to purchase something in this day and age that exceeds my

Thanks Again!

"Purchasing the swing out bike carrier from Gary Lee was too easy. All
corresponding emails were prompt and professional, and it was a pleasure to
meet the craftsman, himself, when I picked up the rack in Calgary. The
design of the carrier is brilliant and bomber. I also bought the ladder,
which is super sweet as well." Mike Taylor Golden, BC
