I really like these j-style folding kayak roof rack mounts. They are very low profile and I am able to leave them on while I drive a standard 5th generation 4Runner through a standard 7 foot garage door.



by:

I rarely leave reviews but I have ordered a few items from etrailer lately and will say that I am impressed with how quickly they get my order shipped and how quickly it gets here.



by:

Everyone was very friendly and helpful, like a Good Neighbor. Very much 'Old Fashion' care and support!



by:

Thanks etrailer, your YouTube videos are very helpful. I have a 2013 Ford F-150 and was looking for kayak transportation solutions. I already had that Thule Evo Wing Bars and needed to find something to go with that. I first tried the Thule Hullavator but that proved to not work. 1: The combined weight of the bars, kayaks and 2 Hullavators exceeded my roof weight limit. 2: The 60” bars are not long enough to allow the Hullavator to swing down over the side of the cab. So, I switched to the Hullaport Aero which I ordered from etrailer. The website ordering was simple and shipping was super fast! The package was well boxed and the installation of the Hullaport Aero was super simple on the Thule Wing Bar Evo. Thanks! I would highly recommend you and would do business with you again in the future.

by:

This was a very satisfactory affordable alternative to the higher priced racks with T slot. I did find that inserting the bolt for Thule Hull-a-Port carrier required that I pull the noise-reducing strip, cut it down, and reinstall it. The instructions that the strip could just be pushed down did not work for these bolts -- just too large. Overall pleased once I played with it a bit.



by:

Love the ability to use a T-bolt for my rack system and that it came with keys/lock! Pricey but quality product. Easier to use and than my Yakima Bow Down.



by:

Awesome, looks great and installs in mi nutes



by:

Overall pleased with the kit. Everything locks which is nice and also great being able to fold them down. Price would be my only complaint, not etrailer, but thule and what they charge for these seems a bit much compared to other setups.

High Quality, Easy Install. Product was back ordered but still arrived in a timely manner.
Very strong, durable and tough construction. I like the fold down feature.

I can understand being disappointed in receiving the wrong part. I will have our customer service team reach out.



by:

These racks are high quality and have met all my expectations.



by:

I bought two sets of these, and got them put on in less than an hour. Used them for the first time this morning and they were very secure. Also let me keep parking in my garage when folded down. Totally pleased with this purchase.



by:

These were easy to install and use, and I love that I can still park in my garage.



by:

Great, sturdy product! Easy to install and use. Highly recommended!



by:

Really high quality - can't wait to drop the yaks on 'em!



by:

This thing is solid. Love the clean look of attaching it to the aero rail t-slots. Worth the price in my opinion.

  • 2018 Ford F-150 6-1/2' Bed Ladder Rack Recommendation To Fit With OEM Tonneau Cover
    As long as the tonneau cover on your 2018 Ford F-150 6-1/2' bed has rails that mount inside your bed you have a few ladder rack options. For one that will for sure work we have the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-501. This has rails that mount on top of your truck bed sides and then the uprights can be adjusted back and forth to accommodate a wide variety of applications. This ladder rack uses a T-Track system that is also compatible with track-mount accessories...

  • What Kayak Carriers Will Fit The Thule TracRac TracONE Crossbars
    We do offer a few kayak carriers that you can use with the Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack. You will need to use a channel mount carrier. Since the crossbars on the TracOne are a bit oversized, none of the clamp on carriers we sell will fit. I recommend using the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Roof Rack # TH849000. This is a J-style carrier which will install into the top channel or T-slots on the Thule crossbars. It also has a built in lock, so you can secure the rack to your...

  • Folding J-Style Kayak Carriers For a 2019 Lexus N300h With Factory Roof Rack
    The Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier # TH849000 attaches to T-Slots on roof rack crossbars. While the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier # TH849000-97 includes the Thule square bar adapter to attach to Thule SquareBars. We also have a similarly designed Kuat Class 4 V2 Kayak Carrier # KU53VR that will clamp around crossbars up to 2-1/2" tall and 4-1/4" wide if the factory crossbars on your 2019 Lexus N300h does not have the T-Slots for roof accessories.

  • J-Style Kayak Carrier Recommendation to Fit T-Slots of Adarac Pro Ladder Rack
    We've got exactly what you need! If you want standard J-Style cradles you can use the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier w/Tie-Downs # TH834 but you will need the Watersports Adapter # THXADAPT11 to fit this to the T-Tracks on your Adarac Pro ladder rack. For something a little nicer we have the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # TH849000 which comes with hardware to mount directly to the T-Slots so no adapter is needed. I personally like the Hull-A-Port Aero better because...

  • Kayak Carrier Fits For Thule TracRac Ladder Rack
    There are indeed kayak carriers that fit the crossbars of the Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Black # TH27000XTB or Silver # TH27000XT. For the J-style, there are a pair of options from Thule, one of which fits directly into the channels on top of the crossbars, and the other which uses an adapter that allows it to mount in the channels. I verified with Thule that both of these options will fit the crossbars of the TracRac: - Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs...

  • 2016 Ram 3500 Rack System to Fit with Folding Tonneau Cover
    The tricky thing about tonneau covers and ladder rack/truck bed roof rack mounting systems is that the rails from the tonneau covers get in the way of the mounting systems for pretty much every rack system, but I do have a solution for your 2016 Ram 3500 with the Thule TracRac SR as long as your tonneau cover rails sit inside your truck bed rails. The TracRac SR, part # TH43003XT-501 without RamBox for short bed or part # TH43003XT-000 for long bed, uses base rails that sit on top of...

  • Will TracRac SR Ladder Rack Fit with BAKFlip MX4 Cover on a 2021 Ram 1500 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    The Thule TracRac SR # TH57RV will fit with both the Cantilever Extension # TH24002XT and the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK448227 for your 2021 Ram 1500 5-1/2' bed (without the RamBox). This is a great combination and we have confirmed that the cover will fit great with the ladder rack without any issues. Please note that the MX4 cover won't fit if you have the Multi-Function Tailgate. When it comes to a J-Style kayak carrier you can use the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier...

    The exact Hull-A-Port you are asking about, the 848, has been discontinued, but if you already have it you can indeed still mount it on the Yakima OverHaul HD ladder rack system with an adapter, the Watersports Adapter # THXADAPT11. If you do not already have the 848, there is a different Hull-A-Port that will fit the OverHaul crossbars without the need for an adapter, the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier # TH849000. The OverHaul is available with three different crossbar sizes: -...

    The best solution to carry kayaks, bikes or any other accessories that you might normally mount on crossbars that's also compatible with your Pace Edwards Jackrabbit with Explorer Rails # 311-JEC95A17 is the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 500 lbs - 68" Crossbars # Y01151-58.

    I attached a link that has all of the roof racks we offer that fit your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 crew cab which has several brands from Thule, Rola, Rhino Rack etc. but the rack I'd recommend is the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA150S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK377 as it gives you a higher quality roof rack at a better price than similar quality racks that fit your truck. Then for a kayak carrier the Hull-A-Port part # TH849000 would be a great option that's padded and can fold down when not...

  • Transporting A Second Kayak On A Thule Wingbar Or Stacker
    You will be fine transporting your second kayak on the stacker. It is a recreational kayak, so it will be fine on its side. It will also save you from purchasing a second accessory. But if you want to transport your kayak laying flat you will only be limited by the space available on your crossbars. I would transport your 2nd kayak on its hull because it makes loading the kayak on the roof easier, especially without a 2nd person. You should not transport it directly on top of your crossbars.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier For An OEM Roof Rack On A 2010 BMW 3 Series
    Yes, the etrailer kayak carrier # e98878 will be compatible with the OEM roof rack on your 2010 BMW 3 series. BMW actually uses a Thule brand roof rack, which is known to be compatible. The clamps on the kayak carrier will fit virtually any crossbar up to 3-1/8" wide x 1-1/2" tall. That being said, we do not offer any kind of adapter to convert the carrier to a T-slot instead of clamp style. If you want a t-slot carrier I recommend the Thule Hull-A-Port # TH849000.

  • Can J-Style Kayak Carriers Be Used On the Old TracRac Truck Bed Ladder Racks
    In order to mount a j-style kayak carrier on a TracRac Truck Bed Ladder Rack you must use one that mounts inside channels, the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier part # TH849000. The reason for this is because the TracRac Truck Bed Ladder Racks have crossbars which are too large for wraparound style carriers. The Thule Hull-A-Port only holds one kayak so it would be rather expensive to carry all four which is why I recommend the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier part # RRS520 as an...

This kayak carrier mounts inside the T-Slot channels on top of the crossbars. The XSporter Pro # TH500XT-XK4 that you referenced is for a 2016-2020 Toyota Tacoma with the Deck Rail System.

    I do have an option for you but the Rhino-Rack 2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # S512-S512X won't fit the TruXedo Elevate Truck Bed Rack System. The 4-1/2" wide crossbars are too large for the 4" max width of the u-bolts. Therefore, your best option is to utilize the channels in the crossbars so you can use a carrier like the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier part # TH849000. For a more cost effective option, we also have the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier part # RRS520 which...

  • Will the Thule TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack for Savana Van Work with Kayak Carriers
    The crossbars that come with the Thule TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack part # TH29055XT are much larger than most standard roof rack crossbars so most wrap-around style rooftop accessories wont work. That said, you can still attach some rooftop mounted accessories to these crossbars using the integrated channels. Therefore, the carrier must be compatible with top channels for this to work like the Thule Hull-A-Port Aero Kayak Carrier part # TH849000 which is what I recommend.
