Ladder Rack System for RetraxONE XR Hard Tonneau Cover on a 2019 Ram 1500

Question:

I have a 2019 Ram 1500 shortbed without Ram Boxes and I have the RetraxOne XR Tonneau cover. Im looking for a slot mountable rack system for carrying kayaks. I found the Yakima Overhaul HD which would work, but Im curious if there is a comparable product from Thule or another manufacturer. I havent been able to find anything. The adjustability of the Overhaul HD is not a requirement, but it is a nice feature. Thank you.

As of right now (April 2019) the Yakima OverHaul HD # Y01151-58 (68" crossbars) and # Y01151-59 (78" crossbars) are the only ladder racks confirmed to fit with your RetraxONE XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails # RTT-60243 (5-1/2' bed) or # RTT-60245 (6-1/2' bed). All you need for the OverHaul HD to fit the Trax Rails is the adapter kit # Y01155.

One of the best things about the OverHaul HD is the ability to add eye bolts # Y01162, load stops # Y01161, or ladder roller # Y01163 for customized cargo control as well as the SideBar rails # Y01153 or # Y01154 for more carrying space.

There are other brand roof rack systems that can be used with the Trax Rails but they sit lower and don't have as high of a weight capacity as the OverHaul HD (500 lbs). I even called Thule and my contact said that they haven't tested and confirmed a fit yet.
