Is There a Tonneau Cover Compatible with a Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack?


Have an Xsporter rack and want a tonneau. Can an inside edge mount tonneau be modified to work with a Thule Xsporter rack? There are multiple other threads on the issue, it just seems that some vendor would come up with a solution.


Expert Reply:

There is not a tonneau cover that is confirmed to fit a Thule Xsporter Rack # TH500XT. The covers all are limited because they need the same mounting location as your Xsporter. There are a few companies that have figured out that they can use the internal mount tonneau and a stake pocket mounted roof rack so they don't interfere, but no company has yet made a tonneau compatible with the adjustable height Xporter. You would need to use a soft cover tonneau and customize both the frame and cover to fit your rack to utilize them together.

People usually use the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Rack like # TH43003XT-501 along with a cover like # BAK39213 which is a popular combination for security and function. Unfortunately there aren't many combinations designed to work well together. If you need assistance with your fit, let me know your year/make/model and bed length and I'd be happy to give you a recommendation for a confirmed fit.
