Solid as a rock!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was looking for a solution to carry my canoe without requiring my wife and I to lift it on and strap it to the roof of my truck. The Xsporter Pro seemed to be the best candidate out there. Installation is pretty straight forward but could end up being a task for one person. With two we were able to take it from box to truck in about an hour without any difficulty. I did have to remove a couple of my bed rail cover's plastic clips to ensure a solid fit on the rail, but once they were out of the way the clamps seated down very securely. Because the length of my boat is 16 feet, we stretched the supports out as far as we could front to back. I think down the road if I want to use a cargo box, basket, or bike rack on there I will need to move them closer together, but for now they support the canoe very nicely. The only issue I have had so far with the rack is limited visibility out the back window when the rack is lowered all the way. Normally this isn't an issue, but if I was pulling a trailer I would probably raise it up just enough to clear the back window. Being able to lock the clamps to the rails and the crossbars to the clamps makes me feel very confident that no one will be able to steal the rack or anything hooked to it.

For attaching my canoe, I used 2 cam buckles around the boat and crossbars and a hooked V strap into the lashing points in the rear of the bed. With the load stops adjusted to the gunwales, the boat was as secure as I could have hoped. Travelling 5 hours home in a fairly stiff crosswind, the boat did not move an inch. Some may want to have a front strap on for more security, but with the rear strap preventing the boat from moving backwards I didn't feel it was necessary.

Loading and unloading the boat is also very simple. Once the bow was on the tailgate, it was simply a matter of climbing up and lifting the bow to the rear crossbar and sliding it until it was centered.

Overall, there isn't much I would change about the rack. From the ease of installation to the security of the load, Thule just got this one right. If you are looking at hauling long, heavy loads in your tuck bed, I'd definitely recommend it.

Unanswered Question

I was planning i buying last night,and the price jumped in less than 2 days from $550 to now $739 . Why???

Almost a perfect rack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I retired the subaru baja and picked up a pickup. Dumped the hard tonneau cover and went shopping for a decent truck bed rack system. Passed up the contractor grade versions (they were cheaper than the Thules) because they weren't versatile. I probably won't change the height of these much, but if I wanted to I could; you can't do that with the others out there. I wanted to be able to take off the top bars and leave the uprights. Not ideal, but better than not having that option.



These will take some time to assemble and I recommend two people (but not your wife in 30 degree temps with a stiff wind blowing). The hardest part is getting the uprights attached to the railing; it might not be a problem for your truck.



The integrated load tie downs are a nice feature. Haven't used them yet, but I'm glad I have them. I mainly got these to hold the Titan Rod Vault. But, I'm certain I'll may throw the kayak up there. I may end up getting a Diablo sup/kayak which weighs about 80lbs. I'm sure the racks can handle it but I'm a little concerned about more weight. Because...



I have these jacked all the way up to allow my Titan Vault to sit under the rack (this is to allow full use of the racks above). And I do find that they do seem a weeee bit shaky (read I notice they move a bit when I'm on rough roads) when all the way up. Needless to say I won't put the max weight on the racks in this position or give it five stars. You may not have the same issue.

Almost a perfect rack!

Too many boards, Not enough room?

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got this for my dad as a birthday present, Hes pretty stoked on it. This rack can hold up to 4 Stand up paddle boards or up to 6 surf boards, and you still have all the room in the bed of the truck. Took him under an hour to install it

Too many boards, Not enough room?

Will this Thule 500XT fit my 2014 Nissan...

Will this Thule 500XT fit my 2014 Nissan Frontier without drilling?

Thx!

Best Answer

This will fit your truck without drilling.

No drilling, this clamps securely onto the rails of the truck bed.
