I’ve been wanting to add an old set of crossbars to my camper for a while, but had no way to attach them. These top tracks were the perfect solution. I can now use a rack, bike/kayak mounts, anything and take advantage of the added storage capacity. To keep the curvature, I trimmed mine down a few inches with a mitre box and hacksaw.

No issues, and they work great!

A year later, and they still work great!

Works great. Instructions were clearly written. Installation was relatively easy. Looks like it came that way from the factory.

They answered my questions regarding install very quickly, with attached printable documents. Also, thought some parts were missing, once again quick response and suggested I look more thoroughly in the box, and they were right! I will buy all my trailer and rack needs from them in the future.

  • Is There Weight Capacity for Thule Top Track Roof Mount System
    The Thule Tracks part # THTP42 that you referenced does not have a weight capacity but it was intended to be used with Thule roof rack feet that have a 165 lb weight capacity so that would be a safe figure to go with.

  • Can The Thule Top Track Roof Mount System Be Installed On A Bare Roof Of A 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?
    Yes you can absolutely install the Thule Top Track Roof Mount System # THTP42 with your 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. This system can also be installed on your own, the parts are very light weighing only 3-lbs for the pair so you shouldn't have any issues with that, however it's also never a bad idea to have a buddy get a second set of eyes on it. To install it you're just going to need to align the tracks to each other and position the ends equally apart from the reference line on your vehicle,...

  • Could Rivets be Used to Install Thule Top Track Roof Mount System # THTP42

  • Where Does Thule Track THTP42 Install on 2014 Honda Odyssey
    I spoke with my contact at Thule about the install of the # THTP42 on your 2014 Honda Odyssey and this is what they told me: 1. They should have a body shop install the tracks. 2. The body shop can get the information from Honda as far as where (and where not) to drill). Thule does not have that info because automobile manufacturers don’t like to share it with us but they will tell the body shops.

  • Do Thule Tracks Fit in Ditch of 2017 GMC Canyon
    The Thule Top Track Roof Mount System, 42" Long # THTP42 does not install inside the channels of your 2017 GMC Canyon. You will instead punch holes directly through the roof to install the tracks on your '17 Canyon.

  • Could Thule Roof Rack Track Be Installed on 2017 GMC Sierra
    I don't like recommend track style roof racks on brand new vehicles as they require drilling through the roof and head liner. If you absolutely wanted to you could install the part # THTB60 I am sure you could. A better option may be the 42 inch long version though part # THTP42 since you want it shorter. Or the 54 inch part # THTP54.

  • Can a Thule Tracker System Be Installed on a 2012 Honda Pilot
    I do have options for you but they do not make a roof track system specifically for your 2012 Honda Pilot. In order to mount a set of tracks like the Thule Top Track Roof Mount System part # THTP42 on your Pilot you would need to either bolt or rivet the tracks onto the vehicle. There are no pre drilled holes on your Pilot to accept the tracks so drilling will be required. I recommend placing the tracks inside of the ditch as this will make fitment much easier.

  • Will Thule Top Tracks Fit a 2013 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab
    Technically you could install the Thule tracks # THTP42 on any viable surface including the roof of your 2013 Nissan Frontier. But I am not sure why you would want to drill holes in the roof of the vehicle. If you want to go forward with that then the only way I can think of to get a diagram of roof supports or other things in the roof is to ask Nissan directly. I have included a link to the roof rack we have for your truck that do not require drilling holes in the roof.

  • Can I Use Yakima SkyLine Towers with Thule Tracks?

Thule Tracks # THTP42 and Yakima Tracks # Y01126 have the same C-channel design, but differ in length and how they mount to the vehicle. To use your SkyLine Towers # Y53TR with these tracks, you need the Yakima Landing Pad 1 # Y00221.

  • Fit of a Roof Mounted Top Rack System on a 2013 Ram 3500
    We don't always list fit information for track kits because of the varying applications of them on trailers, camper shells and actual vehicles.
