Thule Tracrac SR Sliding Truck Rack Review
The Thule Tracrac SR (Sliding Truck) is a great product for your truck bed. It’s designed with a high quality aluminum construction and comes with a built in steel plate. The design allows it to slide into place without any tools or bolts required.
The SR model is available in three different sizes: Small, Medium and Large. Each size includes a set of two rails and four pockets.
It’s made from high quality aluminum alloy which will last for years to come. You’ll never have to worry about rusting again!
It slides right into place without any tools or screws needed. It doesn’t require drilling holes either! (That would just be silly!
It’s easy to install and takes only seconds. No special skills are required.
You don’t need to drill any holes in your truck bed, because the SR model has openings at both ends for mounting. (See picture above.)
The only con I found was that if you’re not careful when installing it, the rails could fall out during use. If they do, then you’ll have to buy new ones. (Not really a big deal though considering they’re so affordable!)
Overall, the Thule Tracrac SR is a great product. I’ve had mine for over a year and I’ve used it many times without any issues.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a durable sliding truck rack!
Where to Buy: You can find the Thule Tracrac SR at various retailers such as Meijer, Academy, Mmart and others. (Just make sure you get the Thule brand!) You can also check online on sites like Amazon.
I would recommend getting it from one of the brick and mortar stores though, so you can actually see how it works before buying it.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Does this rack work on a fiberglass top?
A: As long as the areas where you want to mount it aren’t brittle then yes, it should work. (Just make sure not to over tighten the bolts!)
Q: Can I use this rack for transporting kayaks?
A: Yes! It can handle up to 130 pounds which is more than enough for two kayaks. Just make sure the kayaks are double strapped on the rack.
Q: Does this rack work with a canopy?
A: That would depend on the type of canopy. Some are wide enough that they might block part of the rack and cause it to be unstable. You might have to remove the canopy in those cases.
Well, there you have it folks! Those are my thoughts on the Thule Tracrac SR Sliding Truck Rack. I hope you found it helpful!
Have a great day!
