How to Minimize Wind Noise on MaxxTow Ladder Rack


Is there a fairing that can deflect the wind for noise like the Yakima racks, any ideas?

I recommend to use a Thule Top Channel Cover part # 852-5402-013 to insert into the T-channel on the aero bars of the ladder rack part # MT70423. I went to the warehouse and tested the top channel rubber strip and it fits the T-channel on the Maxxtow Aero bars on the top and the bottom channel. The rubber stripping is designed to cut down on wind noise because it blocks the wind from getting into the T-channel and creating a whistling sound. The strip does need to be cut around accessories that slide into the T-channel.

There is not a fairing available for the MaxxTow Ladder Rack part # MT70423.
