Can I Mount A Thule TracVan Es Ladder Rack To My Weather Guard WG Mounting Channel


Have a 2020 Ford Transit van with Weather Guard WG rails installed. Looking for a tower and crossbar combination that will interface with the WG rails. I see the Thule TracRac on your site when I enter my vehicle but looks like those use the factory attachment points which are already consumed by the WG rails. If you have any compatible solutions please let me know. Thanks!

I do have a solution for you, but it will require you to remove these rails and install a roof rack directly to the fixed points on your 2020 Ford Transit T350. You will be able to install the Thule TracRac TracVan ES Van Ladder Rack - 2 Bar - 500 lbs, part # TH29610XT, directly to your vehicle's roof.

I spoke to a Thule representative and they do not recommended you attach the Thule TracRac TracVan ES Van Ladder Rack to your Weather Guard WG Mounting Channel Kit fixed points. If you do mount them, you do so at your own risk and you will void the warranty of that Thule product. Unfortunately, the other rack vendors will also say the same thing. They will not assume the risk for a test fit that has not been done.
