Video Transcript for Review of Thule Artificial Rain Gutters - TH542

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a look at these Thule artificial rain gutters. Now, this is going to allow gutterless vehicles or camper shells to use the Thule Gutter Feet to build a roof rack. Now, on your screen, I am including the model numbers of the Gutter Feet that these rain gutters will work with. So, this is going to be great for camper shells and caps.

And this is going to be an easy installation on the top or the side. It does require some drilling. And you're gonna get everything that you see here on the table before me. And just to explain to you what I've done here, I have three assembled here. Kind of loosely assembled just to kind of give you an idea of what these are going to look like together.

And then this one I have completely unassembled just so you can see the parts that are included with just one of these here. So, this is going to include the reinforcement bracket, and then the gasket, and then the artificial rain gutter itself along with the hardware. And while I have this one loosely assembled, let me go ahead and just give you some overall dimensions. So, I'm gonna pull out my ruler here. So, looking at the overall width, we are sitting right at about 6 1/2 inches long.

And then looking at the overall height and I'm not including the gutter itself, just the actual actual bracket, we're sitting right at about an inch and three quarters. About an inch three-quarter tall, it looks like. And then the bolt holes, center to center, let me go ahead and put this back down and just pull out the unassembled gutter piece here that'll be easier to measure. Center to center, we're sitting right at 5 1/8 inches. Now, instructions are included.

And that's going to conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Allows gutterless vehicles or camper shells to use Thule Gutter Feet (TH300, TH387, and TH953) to build a roof rack.


I think the gutter brackets are great. they are easy to install , and seam to be of an extruded aluminum stock. great stuff for exterior use. I first used a 4 foot level for a straight edge so i could parallel the camper windows. after laying out the location , using the rack to find the best elevation, dry mounted to the gutter bracket. I marked this location. I made sure this location was parallel to the windows. Then I used the backing plate as a template while drilling , this guarantees a perfect fit. A little silicon for fit up and bolt in place . As you can see my rack is a Yakima system. But the Tully gutter brackets work great. I was glad to see they were made in the U.S.A. very cool . you need to include this bit of info in your ads ... thanks for your help.. I am a kayak fisherman. California and Baja. this will work good...see ya,,,,,

Did you use sealant in addition to the rubber gaskets that are provided with these artificial gutters? If so, where did you use it and how much? Thanks!


Have ordered and used the Thule 542 before, so I know the product itself is just fine. Actually, the 542's are better than other similar mounts that I looked at. The difference is the customer service I received from Andrew L. He did a great job, was polite and professional. Can't find that combination very often anymore!!



The Thule mounts are holding up just fine. No complaints and would recommend to others.


The Thule artificial rain gutters are the perfect solution for creating the rain gutters I need on my camper shell in order to attach my vintage surf racks. was the perfect outlet to have ordered these through. They provided fast shipping and outstanding customer service!! Highly recommend both the rain gutters and Thank you.


the retention bumps that stop the rack from sliding off are on the rail are better placed and a little bigger.
it is 1/2 the price of yakima that i purchased before because you get 4 instead of two from Yakima for the same price.


I have ordered from etrailer prior to this order with very good results. My current order is no exception, shipped very quickly and in perfect condition. I haven't had a chance to install the rain gutters but I did size it up and see no potential problems. I will let everyone know how I made out once it's installed.


Was a little frustrated with the communication on the product since when I bought it the website said there were some in stock and then got an email that it wasn’t and would be delayed by a week. They got it out quicker than expected and with all the delays in online ordering due to Covid 19, I have to say they did a good job getting the item to me quick. It’s the first time I tried Etrailer and think I’ll try them again as an alternative to online shopping. Thanks!


The rain gutters themselves are great. I used these on a pop top VW Eurovan had to find other screws, as the included ones were too long, would wear holes in the canvass of the pop top.


Used them on my son’s camper top on his pickup. They work great! They’re used to support his kayak, canoe, and bicycle. A wonderful product.


There were very easy to mount on My new ARE topper


I ordered Thule ARGs and everything went perfect - good communication, fast shipping, excellent service - Thanks.


It’s a good product, and the service was above and beyond. Greg did a great job, and the product arrived in a timely manner. Thx!


The entire process and discussion was p erfect!


Received items promptly and everything looks great. Thank you.
