Video Transcript for Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Xsporter Pro. This adjustable height bed-mounted ladder has a 450 pound weight capacity. Its part number is TH500XT. The fully adjustable rack offers very simple operation. It comes equipped with our quick dial knobs here. Just unscrew it, and as you can see that side is already freed up. We'll come over here to the driver's side, do that same thing.

As you can see, they can be adjusted all the way down to where the side rails are actually resting right down on top of the bed, mostly all the way up to where they're sitting flush with the bottom of this clamp on the side. Now, on each arm there are numbers. They're going to make it really easy to set. You're not going to have to go through and count the slots and spend all day trying to figure out which notch you've got it in. Each one of them is numbered. It's going to make it really easy to get your rack set right where you want it.

Get this to our number, and we'll just tighten that dial right down. The Xsporter is equipped with a full length T-slot on top of the both of our load bars. When not in use, they have a nice rubber wind diffuser that'll fit into the slot. When we want to use it, we can simply pull out our diffuser, and we'll set it aside. You can see that's going to open up the channel that runs the entire width of our bar. This is going to help it to accept most accessories. The load stops, as you see here, are going to be included.

But you've got any number of different items that will easily go into the Thule T track system and allow it to be used. We're going to find the Thule One Key system on the base of our clamp and also at the end of our load bar. This is to help prevent our clamp from being removed, keeping our bases affixed to our truck. Another feature of the Xsporter Pro is going to be its simply installation. There's no drilling required. You've got two allen bolts and a track that runs all the way under the bar, so this is made to accommodate the narrowest beds, I'm using a Nissan Frontier here, up to the widest that they offer. This is going to accommodate it. We've gone ahead and tightened those back down, and we've installed our four clamps here on our front bar.

I'll show you how to install these last clamps. We place our rubber pad underneath the side support or the side rail. Our clamp is going to consist of a C. As you can see, there's a tab on one side. That's going to be our top. The bolt comes in the bottom. On top of the bolt, you're going to see a spreader. This is going to spread out the energy of that bolt across the wider area, giving us a better purchase. The locking clamp has a simple addition. As you can see, there's an allen bolt there, and then the little T block. Two of your clamps, one clamp on each set of the rack, you'll want to have that on so you can put that lock and cover on. We'll bring our clamp around the underside of the bed rail and allow it to rest right into our slot. We'll then start tightening our bolt down, run it down hand tight, and then we'll finish tightening it with our allen key. Then it's just a matter of sliding our cover over, turning the key. Just like that, we're ready to load up some gear. Once we have the ladder positioned where we want it, we'll go around to our four load stops. We're going to bring them right into the edge of our ladder. That's going to keep our load from shifting side to side, and it's also going to offer us, at each corner, a couple good connection points. We've got the larger opening here, and also a small hook right here. No matter what we've got loaded up, or what we're going to be hauling around, we should be able to get it secured to our vehicle, using our load stop. The versatile load bars will accept most Thule clamp on and channel mount carriers and accessories. Some accessories may require the Thule XADAPT adapters. That part number is THXADAPT9. We're now going to take it out through our test course so you can see exactly what it looks like in action. We'll start by going through the slalom. That's going to show you the side to side movement of our rack. We'll then go into the alternating bumps. This applies a twisting force to the car, so you can see how that's going to work. Once we get to our solid speed bumps, just like any other speed bumps, it's going to lift the car up and down, and you can see how sturdy our rack is. That's going to complete today's look at the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Ladder Rack with Load Stops, part number TH500XT. .

Love these because of the adjustability. I can carry my tent lower than the roofline, or use to carry my canoe above it. The adjustable stops make it easy to change depending on whatever load you're running, ladders, plywood, a boat, etc! The black powder coat happens to match my truck perfectly. 463004

This is a fantastic product! Looks great, adjust easily. With the toolbox and ladder racks down it really gives the truck a unique look. Less than 5 minutes they can be adjusted up to carry whatever is needed. I attach my hullavator kayak cradle to it in another couple of minutes and am ready to easily load kayak. I couldn’t be more satisfied. 601832

I have loaded this with lumber and other construction equip. Has not failed. Some times reinstalling the racks is a little frustrating but patience pays off. Once I entered a parking garage and forgot they were up because they are adjustable, got out of truck and lowered them which only takes a minute and was still able to park . Like these . 736279

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


More expensive than other racks but I was impressed with the quality of the components, the directions and even the packaging. I wanted racks that I could adjust as low as possible to ease the loading of kayaks and just clear the cab. These adjust to just about any height you'd want in 3/4 inch increments. My only doubt is whether the C clamps that secure the bases to the bed rails might loosen over time. 465973


Comments
With a years use now on the racks, Ive been pleased with them. The C clamps have needed to be tightened once, maybe twice but I have used the racks many times and sometimes on some fairly rough roads.

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


I'm an insurance adjuster with a 2017 Toyota Tacoma and this product is versatile and saves time when needing to disassemble. The Thule ladder rack was easy and simple to assemble, can be done in 304-45 minutes. I carry anywhere from 3 extension ladders and sometimes materials with plenty of room.. It can also carry up to 4 kayaks depending on how they are stacked.. I would recommend this for anyone that needs easy quick dissembling with with no racks sometimes 566462

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


This rack is perfect for my purpose. I routinely get lumber for woodworking that is 12 foot long. With this rack and a rooftop rack option for my Tacoma it is very easy to transport it. The only thing that would improve it is if it were somehow modified so that it could be adjusted down all the way. The Tacoma truck bed sides get in the way of lowering the rack very far. 713142

  • Will the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier Fit the Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack
    In order to attach the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier part # TH834 to the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT you will need the Watersports Adapter for Aeroblade/Aeroblade Edge Bars part # THXADAPT11. The Xsporter's crossbars are too large for the Hull-A-Port to wrap around which is why you need to use the Watersports Adapter because this converts the Hull-A-Port to mount using the track system.

  • Thule Cascade Cargo Box Compatibility with Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack
    The Xsporter Pro like # TH500XTB has load bars that measure 3-1/2 inches by 1-1/2 inches. The Thule Cascade cargo box will use mounts that are 3-1/4 inches wide so they will not fit the bars on the Xsportster Pro. You would need to create a custom mount to make them compatible with wider U-bolts. Then you can use # LT37467 to seal holes. This will work but will also be outside the warranty of either product.

  • Will Tie-Down Loops for Rola Haul-Your-Might Truck Bed Ladder Rack for Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack
    The Tie-Down Loops for Rola Haul-Your-Might Truck Bed Ladder Rack # 59795 are the correct size so they will absolutely fit in the T-slots of the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH500XT (Silver) or # TH500XTB (Black).

  • Could Yakima Skybox 21 Cargo Box Fit on Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack # TH500XTB
    You'd have to space the uprights of the Thule Xsporter part # TH500XTB at a minimum of 3-1/2 feet apart, but the Yakima Skybox 21 part # Y07337 is compatible with the bar dimensions so as long as they uprights are close together enough you'd be fine.

  • Removing the Crossbars From the Thule XSporter Pro Ladder Rack
    The Thule Xsporter, part # TH500XTB, can have its crossbars removed from the bases, leaving them installed and the bases clamped to the bedrails. I wouldn't recommend doing so, as you can also just remove the base's clamps and uninstall the entire unit in about the same amount of time as removing the bars.

    The Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum # TH500XTB will not work with the over the cab extension. I confirmed this with my contact at Thule.

I have added a link to a video showing this being installed so you can take a look at the process involved.

  • 2018 Ford F-150 5.5 ft Bed Ladder Rack Compatible with Tracks on Retrax Pro XR Tonneau Cover
    I've got a solution for you, but the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH500XTB uses clamps to attach to the top and inside of your bed rails, so it is not compatible with the Trax Rails on the RetraxPRO XR # RTT-80373, compatible with your 2018 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 foot bed. Take a look at the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack # Y01151-5855. This is the best option to add a ladder rack to your F-150 with a RetraxPRO XR bed cover because it is specifically...

  • Will Three Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carriers fit Thule Xsporter on 2017 Chevy Colorado?
    Three Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carriers # TH834 will absolutely fit onto the 72" long load bars of the Thule Xsporter # TH500XTB that fits both the 5' and 6' bed of your 2017 Chevy Colorado. Depending on how wide your kayaks are, you may have better luck getting three kayaks to fit by using the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830, which will take up less room on the XSporter. You would need Adapter # THXADAPT3 to mount The Stacker on the Xsporter and your kayaks could...

  • Replacement Bed Rail Clamps and T-Bolts for Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack
    We have each of the replacement parts you need for your Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack # TH500XT (Silver) or # TH500XTB (Black).

  • Ladder Rack Fit for 2019 Ford Ranger
    We have the perfect way for you to carry ladders with your 2019 Ford Ranger, although there is not a front-mounted hitch that fits this truck. There are ladder racks though which will work to carry your extension ladders as well as other gear. So long as your '19 Ranger is a 4-door Crew Cab with a 5'6" bed OR a 4-door Super Cab with a 6'6" bed there are two ladder rack options: - Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH500XT (Silver) or # TH500XTB (Black) -...

  • Will Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack Fit 2020 Jeep Gladiator
    I checked with Thule regarding the fits of their ladder racks on a 2020 Jeep Gladiator and can confirm that the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH500XTB (Black) and # TH500XT (Silver) do fit your truck. This ladder rack is highly adjustable and mounting it only requires clamping the rack onto your bed rails so you do not need to do any type of drilling or other invasive installation steps. The Xsporter Pro is going to be a quieter ladder rack than others due to its aerodynamic...

  • What Type of Ladder Rack is Easiest to Adjust to Fit in and Out of Garage
    I have a really great idea that will allow your truck to easily fit in your garage without requiring you to disassembly a ladder rack. What your best solution would be is a ladder rack that has an adjustable height like the Thule Xsporter part # TH500XTB which would allow you to lower the bars in a matter of seconds to fit in your garage and then raise them back up when outside of the garage. Just be sure to remember to lower them always so you don't hit the bars on anything! The # MT70423...

  • Can Aries Switchback Headache Rack for 2017 GMC Canyon Support Ladders
    I have spoken with Aries before about weight ratings for headache racks and have been told that racks such as the Aries Switchback Headache Rack # AA1110109 that fit your 2017 GMC Canyon do not have specific weight ratings because they were not designed with the intention of supporting cargo like ladders. For carrying ladders the best option is a ladder rack, the Thule Xsporter Pro # TH500XTB which will fit either the 5 foot or 6 foot bed on your '17 GMC Canyon. The Xsporter Pro has...

  • Recommended Ladder Rack for 32 Foot Ladder on 2013 Ford Super Duty
    The Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 450 lbs - Black # TH500XTB you referenced is a great start, but a 32 foot ladder will require additional support. I recommend also adding the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender for 2" Hitches - 375 lbs # MPG907 or the Darby Extend-A-Truck Hitch Mounted Load Extender # DTA944 to give you additional support on either the front or back of your vehicle. Ideally for a 32 foot ladder you would have both. For your 2013...

  • Ladder and Bed Rack to Carry Kayaks on a 2016 Ford F-150
    Ladder rack bars are often much larger than roof rack bars which is the case with the Thule Xsporter Pro ladder rack # TH500XTB or # TH500XT for your 2016 Ford F-150. I do have a kayak carrier option that will work but the Malone carrier # MPG107MD will not fit. Instead you can use the Thule Top Deck # TH881 and to get it to fit the Xsporter bars you will also need adapter # THXADAPT3.

  • Black Ladder Rack for 2018 Toyota Tundra with 6-1/2 Foot Bed without Deck Rail System
    The Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-610 is only available in silver but it does have a powder coat to help protect it from rust and a clear coat for scratch resistance. This ladder rack is a fit for your 2018 Toyota Tundra with a 6-1/2 foot bed, with or without the Deck Rail System. There is an option for a black ladder rack, so long as your Tundra does NOT have the Deck Rail System; the best option is the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH500XTB...

  • Will Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack Crossbars be as Tall as Cab on 2016 Ram 1500
    On the Thule Xsporter Pro ladder Rack # TH500XTB the crossbars can go up to a maximum of 30 inches measure from the tops of the bed sides on the truck. If you measure up 30 inches from your bed sides you can compare that to the height of the cab on your 2016 Ram 1500. We do not have the bed rail to cab height measurements on any trucks.
