    Anyone here have a ladder rack for a Tacoma with the rail/composite bed system? If so do you have any problems with it? Any particular model you like or dislike?

    I'm look at carrying a canoe, maybe some ladders and material in the future. Doesn't seem many of the systems are rated for over 600 or so pounds.

    I bet a 20' extension ladder weighs 40-50lbs, 10' 20-30 at least. 8' maybe 30. Bundle of conduit 30-40lbs. Seems like 500 would be plenty of capacity for what I'm thinking of doing in the future.

    You should try a van with at least a thousand on the lid. It drives fine. I'm sure a Tacoma wouldn't have any problems.

    I got a rig from US Rack too. Well built. They have a few to choose from (ladder, canoe etc etc).

    Is the Thule better than the TracRac? TracRac costs a hair less but both are about the same expense it seems.

    I like the look of the T-Rac Pro. Has cleats for tying off loads also. Something the Thule is missing.

    Yeh it does, it's like the 250000 model I think. Looks pretty slick actually.
