I'm looking to ditch my stock roof rack for a set up that will actually be of some real use. Out of local Craig's List ads, I found opportunities to go with a Thule XSporter set up or Thule base and cross 54" rail arrow bars with the 44" fairing, both for the same price (btw a WICKED good deal!!!).
I'm in a bit of a quandary as to what would be more practical. Using the roof keeps the bed clear and allows for use of my tonneau cover to keep things locked up and out of sight, but using the Thule XSporter allows for a larger load...
I'm looking to hook 2 sets of Thule's "J" kayak to transport 2 kayaks. I also tow a pop up camper and mt. bikes at times.
What do you guys use? Prefer? Thoughts???
