Thule Roof Rack For A Thule Camper Shell


I have Thule 460R with square bars. I did not receive the foot base. Is this the part that I need to order. By the way, when the package arrive today it was open on one end and missing 3 end caps

If you have the Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars - Fixed Point - Qty 4, part # TH460R, and square crossbars, the last part you need for your roof rack is the fit Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet - 3101, part # THKIT3101. The the rubber bases for the Thule feet come with the fit kit. These feet go with the redesigned Thule square crossbars -- they have a channel on the underside of the crossbar. Your 2020 Chevrolet Colorado needs a 69" crossbar and Thule does not make a square crossbar of that length anymore.

If your square crossbar is long enough, it will not work with the redesigned foot. You will need the Thule ProBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - 69" Long - Qty 2, part # TH713600. I would also recommend the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4. part # TH450400, so you can secure the rack to your vehicle.

If your camper shell does not have tracks, you will need to get those installed before you install the roof rack. The Thule Top Tracks come in varying lengths:

42" Long, part # THTP42
54', Long, part # THTP54
60" Long, part # THTB60

You will pick the one that works for your vehicle.

These crossbars have a weight limit of 220 lbs. Check your Leer Camper shell's weight limit and adhere to the lower of the two values. I have included product description links and video review links below.
