Best Ladder Rack to Fit Retrax Pro XR Tonneau Cover on 2018 Ford F-250


I am looking for a rack system to use on the Retrax Pro XR Tonneau cover T-Track compatible. I see there are Yakima and Thule Ladder racks. Can you confirm what model/part number will work or will not work? I think I prefer the look / function of the Thule with the large screw knob for tightening but am still interested in Yakima. Thanks!

Yakima has the best option for a ladder rack to fit the Retrax Pro XR tonneau cover # RTT-80383 of your 2018 Ford F-250 short bed like with the part # Y01151-5855 that you referenced.

The Thule option is the Thule ProBar Evo Crossbar System part # TH713700, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT3101 (part # TH450400 for locks) which is more of a standard roof rack that fits into the rails which will be lower. While it's still a solid option it's not the TracRac style of ladder rack I believe you are referring to based on mentioning knobs.

I attached a review video for the Yakima rack for you to check out as well.
