Anyone have a Thule Xsporter Truck Rack?

Does anyone have the Thule Xsporter Truck Rack? I'm considering it to get my bikes and in the future a kayak out of the bed of the truck to open the space up. Let me know how you like yours and even post a pic if you have one. Especially anyone with a new body style Tundra.

This is what I'm talking about:

I have one and love it. We take 2 kayaks and 2 bikes with us alot of the times when we go out and it works great. Well made, very sturdy and no damage to truck when installed. You can get kayak saddle attachements for it, but I just use foam rubber cushions that work great.
2 thumbs up.

I hadn't seen that one. Thanks. I'm going to get one. Might write it off as a birthday present to myself next month. Add in a couple standing bike racks and I'll be set. Then hopefully a couple kayaks come spring.

Ok - Bayou big dog, I have to ask (at the risk of hijacking this thread), why did you go from the 2011 F250 to the 2011 F150?

Yaks and Racks

I have a pic somewhere all hooked up to the trailer but this shows the racks and yaks pretty well. Plenty of room to turn while towing and all the space in the truck bed is still available...
Had to buy adapters to fit the rail inside the Toyota bed though.
One other thing, Thule sells a half dozen or so different types of kayak/canoe holders to attach to the racks. They all look great, but we went to a local surf shop and got pads for the racks and straps for the kayaks. Perfect, no slip or shift during trips. And $$$$ cheaper. So depending on what you are carrying up there, this may work for you.

Although we ended up building our own, I found a nice one at Lowes made from aluminum for about $300.00. If I can find a pic I'll post it.
