    Anybody interested in a Group Buy on the Thule Xsporter racks? Price would depend on interest but would be worth it since Thule is MAP and all stores retail for the same amount.

    The Socal guys would be getting the best deal as you could pick it up in SD, Oside, or Sunset Beach and not have to pay shipping.

    For other guys we have awesome UPS Rates and if your within distance of one of the freight hubs you can pick up there for even less.


    If you guys have an interest let me know and ill work out some prices with the owners. we are getting ready to do the Thule Preseason order so id like to get it rolling.

    Price is somewhat dependent on the number of folks but Id like to save each member around $100.00.

    Seeing as How Thule is MAP Pricing that is 100.00 more than you can save anywhere else.

    Retail on these for these in 2009 is 599.95

    MAP is advertised price it has nothing to do with what they retailer actually sells them for. If you talk to the retailers individually I’m sure many will offer individual discounts seeing as how the economy sucks. They just can’t advertise anything lower but are generally free to sell as they please. I’m talking in general sense not specific to Thule.

    How do these affect the usage of the existing rails? I’m assuming they will not work my bed cover? I’d be interested if price were more a long the line of $400-450.

    For the use with existing rails, I assume you are talking about on the 2nd Gen trucks? With these ther is an adapter kit so it slides right into the rail.

    No it will not work with any kind of bed cover as it mounts on the inside of your bed.

    I know what MAP means we deal with a lot of vendors that use MAP in the Scuba and Kayak industry however I am making the point that you will not find a better price online and most large outlets do not put Thule on sale due to the low margins. All I am attempting to do is get some fellow Taco Lovers a good deal on an awesome rack.

    Hey I scuba and kayak... Hook a brother up!! Maybe consider doing a GB for Thule stuff in general and not limit it to the specific rack. Also I’m assuming its $499 for the rack + the cost of the adapter kit?

    Yes 499.00 plus the adapters at 15% off.

    For other Thule stuff I can do a flat discount of 15% for TW Members. A Group buy would be difficult as everybody seems to want something different.



    As for the Scuba and kayak gear, let me know what you need. Always willing to help folks out with whatever I can.

    Has any one test fitted the XSporter with the 2010 access cab. With that plastic rail i'm having a hard time picturing how it would work out? Need something for the Kayaks and i like the idea of a bed rack best. The Thule fit guide did not have anything for the 2010 when i looked.

    Suggestions welcome

    I did a bit more searching and saw a pic of an 09 with XSporter and the rails look the same...

    You can call me interested.
