How To Add a Side Rail To a Ladder Rack for a Rooftop Tent


I have the Xsporter rack mounted to my Chevy 2500HD. I need bars to span from the front Aerobar ? to the back, in order to support my rooftop tent. Will Thule square load bars with the slot along the bottom do the job? Thanks,


Helpful Expert Reply:

The only ladder rack that we offer with a side bar option is the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # Y01151-58 when used with the SideBar Rails for Yakima OverHaul HD part # Y01153 or part # Y01154. There is not a side bar option for the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XTB. That said, most roof top tents like the Yakima SkyRise HD Tent part # Y07436 or the Thule Tepui HyBox Rooftop Tent part # TH8001HB112 do not require any sort of side rail.

If you can further explain what your exact issue is I would be glad to see if we have any other options for you.
