2016 Ford F-150

Overall this is a great option for a quickly installed and secure way to haul bicycles in a pick-up truck. One thing I did not consider was the fact I had a tonneau cover on my 2016 Ford F-150 from Gator. The rails for the cover overlap into the bed of the truck an inch and a half, but the Thule tailgate pad is flexible enough to work under the rails to get the tailgate closed. Installation takes 10 minutes alone and 5 with help. Great product and great support from eTrailer.com! 814849

Ask the Experts about this Thule Truck Bed Bike Racks

  • Will the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad Work On a 2019 Ram 1500
    I have a few options for you to carry bikes in the bed of your 2019 Ram 1500 (All Models). The best option for you would be dependent on how many bikes you need to haul. If you need to haul multiple bikes then the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad part # TH824PRO is your best option. There won't be any issue using the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad on a 2019 Ram 1500 with curved tailgate. There is also a cutout for models with the tailgate backup camera and padding to protect both your bikes...

  • Will Using the Thule GateMate Pro Truck Bed Bike Carrier Block a Backup Camera
    If the backup camera is housed in the tailgate handle then you would have to hold open the flap on the Thule GateMate Pro # TH824PROso it isn't blocking the camera's view. You could tuck it under a strap above it temporarily as needed. We have a lot of truck bed bike rack options, see link. If you can tell me the year, make, and model of the truck and how many bikes you want to carry I can make some specific recommendations.

  • Truck Bed Bike Racks Compatible with Rambox Feature on 2018 Ram 2500
    We do have truck-bed bike racks that are confirmed to work in your 2018 Ram 2500 with the Rambox feature. These are shown on the linked page. The bar-style racks like the Topline # UG2500-4 cannot be used on your truck but the linked article addresses the various types of truck bed bike racks we offer and this may be helpful to you. Most of the options for your Ram 2500 are the fork-block type like # HRT970 and # RKY1096 but we also have tailgate pad carriers such as the Softride...

  • Truck Bed Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Ram 3500 with Ram Boxes
    For your 2019 Ram 3500 that has the Ram Boxes you'd want the Thule Gate Mate part # TH824PRO which fits over the rear tailgate and gives you a place to mount a couple bikes. The other styles of bike racks that would clamp to a bed rail cannot be used with your truck due to the Ram Boxes.

  • Will Thule Gate Mate Work with Townie Cruiser Bike
    Yes, the Thule Gate Mate Tailgate Pad Bike Rack part # TH824PRO would work just fine with a Townie Cruiser bike. I attached an install video that shows the rack installed on a Ram truck for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad Work With a Truck Bed Cover
    The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad part # TH824PRO is an excellent option for a 2002 Toyota Tundra. In regards to compatibility with a truck bed cover, you'd need to have the cover folded up or rolled back when using the tailgate pad. The cover would not be able to folded/rolled shut with the tailgate pad in place. That said, you could easily store the tailgate pad in the truck bed while not in use.

  • Wile Thule TH824PRO GateMate PRO Affect Turning Radius While Towing a Trailer
    If you check out the video I've linked for you, you can see that when the bikes install, the front bike wheels are carried at an angle, so that the front bike wheels aren't taking up very much room at all between the tailgate and where the trailer would sit. The tires wouldn't extend past the rear surface of the tailgate by more than a foot, which would in no way impede your trailer turning radius. You'll see what I mean when you view the video. The Thule GateMate PRO is a pretty innovative...

  • Will the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad Fit a 2019 GMC Sierra 1500
    Yes, the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad part # TH824PRO which is an excellent option to carry bikes inside a truck bed without worrying about them flopping around damaging both the truck and bikes will fit a 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 (All Models) just fine. The Thule GateMate Pro is super easy to install and it folds up nicely for storage. It's also very universal so you can bring it with you on your new truck when the time comes.

  • Can Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad be Used with the Tailgate Down on a 2012 Ford F-150
    The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad # TH824PRO will be strapped to the tailgate whether it is up or down so you could have the tailgate down with cargo in the bed while driving and it would be fine.

  • Will the Thule Insta-Gater Work On a Bike with Fenders
    I do have a few other options for you but the Thule Insta-Gater Truck Bed Single Bike Rack part # TH501 will not work with bikes that have fenders. Instead, you can use the Topline 1 Bike Carrier Truck Bed Mounted Expandable Bike Rack part # UG2500-1 or the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for Truck Beds part # INRT201 depending on the weight of your bike but these are the only truck bed mounted options that will work for your bike without removing the wheel. Please note, if you have RamBoxes...

  • Recommended Truck Bed Bike Rack for Rad Power RadRover E-Bikes
    In order to carry two Rad Power RadRover E-Bikes in a truck bed, I recommend going with the Topline 2 Bike Carrier Truck Bed Mounted Expandable Bike Rack part # UG2500 because it does not suspend the bikes therefore heavy e-bike won't be an issue, it has locks for security, and you can add to it if needed to carry more bikes. The only potential issue is if you have the version with step-through frame in which case you'd also need the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005. Please...

  • How Tight Should Straps of Thule GateMate Pro be On Tailgate
    Thule does not specify a tightness for the straps of the Thule GateMate Pro # TH823PRO on trucks like your 2019 Honda Ridgeline as that's hard to do given the nature of the strap setup but what you'll want to do is tighten them snugly by hand using your best judgment. There are two sizes for this rack though and you should make sure you don't have the larger # TH824PRO which wouldn't fit your tailgate well and might be why you'd have issues tightening it down. I attached a review video...

  • Tailgate Pad Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 1500
    Personally I like the Softride Shuttle Pad # SR26457 more than the Thule Gate Mate part # TH824PRO because it has the loops that allow a bike to easily be secured to the pad. Thule doesn't have the straps to secure the bikes to the pad, and most likely they wouldn't be necessary. But for added peace of mind I prefer the Softride. I attached review videos for both racks for you to check out.

  • Which Tailgate Pad Bike Rack Fits a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
    The Softride Tailgate Pad, # SR26461, for mid size trucks is probably going to be the best option. It measures 54 inches long so compare that to the tailgate on your 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac to determine fit. The model for a full size truck, # SR26457, is 61 inches long. Thule also has a similar product, # TH823PRO for a 54 inch or # TH824PRO for a 62 inch. All of these items work in basically the same way. They fit over the tailgate, have a flap for the tailgate handle. They...

  • Will Yakima GateKeeper Fit 2018 Ford F-150
    The Yakima GateKeeper will fit your 2018 Ford F-150. It comes in a 53" length # Y07410 as well as a 62" length # Y07411, depending on what you'd rather have. This is more of a universal fit so Yakima doesn't "state" that it fits anything and since we haven't test fit it on a 2018 F-150 yet, that's why the note says it isn't confirmed to fit. We recently installed the 60" Thule GateMate Pro # TH824PRO on a 2020 F-150 and there was still a little room on either side (see attached) so you...

  • Tailgate Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 1500
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said that you could definitely install more than 2 bikes on the Thule Gate Mate Tailgate Pad # TH824PRO, the only issue will be the weight of the bikes on the tailgate which would be the same for this rack or the Softride Shuttle Pad Tailgate Bike Carrier # SR26457 that you also referenced. Since the Thule rack has been tested and fits the tailgate of your 2014 Ram 2500 without any issues this would be the tailgate pad I would recommend for you....

  • Recommended Truck Bed Bike Rack for 2019 Ram 1500 with RamBox
    I do have some great options for you, however the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack # INRT201 that you referenced will not work on your 2019 Ram 1500 that's equipped with the RamBox storage system. It simply won't have the mounting area required for this to clamp around. Since you have the RamBoxes you will need to go with a carrier that actually bolts to the bed floor or attaches to the channel rails (instead of utilize the side rails) or use a tailgate pad like the Thule GateMate # TH824PRO....

  • Recommended Truck Bed Bike Rack for 2014 Ram Truck with Ramboxes
    The Thule Insta-Gater bike rack, you mentioned, part # TH501 would be compatible with your truck bed. The rack needs a footprint of about 20 inches, so if you had 50-1/2 inches of tailgate available, you could use two racks side by side. The Thule GateMate Pro, part # TH824PRO would also be a good, inexpensive option. The Ramboxes would prevent you from using any bike rack meant to attach to the side rails, like part # UG2500 as there would be no place to attach the rack. You...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Ford F-150 with Tonneau Cover
    Most truck tonneau covers have rails that will interfere with an item like the Swagman truck bed bike rack # S64702. The L-shaped brackets on either end need to set directly against the bed rails. If anything is in the way you will not be able to use this particular bike rack. But not to worry, there are other options. Another option is the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack, # TH824PRO . Bascially it is a mat that goes over the tailgate to protect it and you can attach bikes...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 Towing R-Pod 190 Travel Trailer
    I have a solution for you, but the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756 is intended to be used with trailer jacks that have a front mounted crank on the jack, so your top crank trailer jack would not be able to function with this bike rack attached. Granted, the instances where your trailer jack battery would die are limited, I'd still like to provide an alternative solution if you wanted to go that route. Instead of the Jack-It, and because using a dual hitch receiver...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for a 2013 Ram 1500 with Tonneau Cover
    The Topline truck bed bike rack # UG2500 is not likely to fit on a 2013 Ram 1500 with a tonneau cover because the clamps would not be able to fit around the rails for the cover. We do have numerous other options that you could use. The Thule GateMate Pro # TH824PRO is one option. The front wheels of the bikes will rest over the tailgate. The truck is protected by the Gate Mate and the bikes will secure to it. I have linked a video showing the Gate Mate on a 2013 Ram for you.

  • How Far Out Does the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender # MPG907 Extend
    On the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender # MPG907 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge on the carrier is 53 inches. So to the nearest part of the up right it will be approximately 51 inches. By my calculations your 10 foot, 5 inch kayaks will overhang the bed by 41 inches. That means if you were to slide the kayaks all the way in the upright on this carrier would still be about 10 inches away. All of the similar extenders are a bit too long...
