What Options Do I Have for a Crossbar System on My 2021 Ford F-150 with a RetraxPro Tonneau Cover?


Hello - Looking for crossbars for my 2021 Ford F-150 with a RetraxPRO XR Tonneau Cover # RTX47SR. Can you please tell me what options are available from Thule, Yakima, and Rhino-Rack? Right now Im looking at the Yakima Skyline HD Bars, but want to compare options. Thanks


Expert Reply:

If you are looking for Thule crossbars for your 2021 Ford F-150 with the RetraxPRO XR # RTX47SR tonneau cover, I recommend the following parts:

- Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet - 3101 # THKIT3101
- Thule Rapid Podium Feet # TH460R
- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711520

If you are looking for a Rhino-Rack system, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Factory Tracks - 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars # Y02-490B-NT.

However, if I had to choose out of all options, I recommend the Yakima Overhaul HD # Y01151-58 along with the Tonneau Cover Adapter Kit # Y01155. The Yakima Overhaul HD is superior to the Thule and Rhino-Rack systems because the OverHaul HD comes with a 500-pound weight capacity (compared to the Rhino-Rack's 220 pounds and the Thule system's 165 pounds). Another reason why the OverHaul HD rises above the others is that it includes built-in tie-down points on uprights and crossbars' endcaps that make it easy to secure gear. If you need straps to secure your cargo, I recommend the Yakima HD Hook Straps with Cam Buckles # Y01165.
