Recommend Ladder Rack for a Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier  


What are my options for a Thule brand, ladder rack for 2021 F-150, 5 1/2 bed, in black? I need to carry 2 kayaks on the ladder rack - what are the easiest to use kayak holders that fit the Thule adder rack ?


Expert Reply:

The best ladder rack for your 2021 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2' bed is going to be the Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack item # TH27000XTB. This ladder rack has a 800 lbs capacity. It has a t-channel that will allow you to mount the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist with Tie-Downs - Side Loading item # TH898. This is the best and most convenient way to transport kayaks. It lowers your kayaks down to the side of your truck to assist you with mounting them on your crossbars.

To use two Thule Hullavators item # TH898 on a vehicle you'll want crossbars that are a minimum of 60". This isn't an exact number because it will also depend on the width of the kayaks. Each of these carriers takes up 28-1/2" of bar space However, you will need 60" of crossbar to fit both of the Hullavators. The Thule TracRac TracONE Ladder Rack item # TH27000XTB has 65" crossbars.

To secure your Hullavators you will want the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders item # TH450400.
