Weight Limit of Thule Traverse Roof Rack with FitKit # THKIT1520 on 2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab  


I downloaded the manual for the 1520 fit kit and it says the limit is 88 lbs but you say its 130lbs am I missing something? I have a 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew cab.


Expert Reply:

The different components that make up the Thule Traverse roof rack for your 2014 Dodge 1500 crew cab have differing ratings. The load bars # INB147 for example are themselves rated for 165-lbs while the foot pack and fit kit are rated lower, 130-lbs.

It can also be that the vehicle has a lower roof weight rating than any of the rack system components. Whenever different parts of a system have different ratings, the lowest-rated one determines the overall capacity.

My contact at Thule confirmed that the truck's roof weight limit is indeed 88-lbs. After you subtract the rack's own weight of about 12-lbs, you have a 76-lb cargo carrying capacity.
