  F 150
  Posted by: B.inboats on Apr-22-13 10:22 PM (EST)

I posted a similar thread last week and didn't get much response. I think I'm going to go with the Thule XSporter 500 Pro. I need it for the height adjustability. If I was only hauling longer boats I would probably go with the Yakima Outdoorsman 300. I still have qualms with putting a 14 ft boat just on bed mounted racks. I'm a huge proponent of bow and stern lines for travel. Running a line from the bow down to tow hooks up front may tend to "bend" the boat down toward the hood. I wonder if I should buy a single load bar that would go toward the front of the cab roof. Past posters worried about the potential twist with the boat being supported from the cab and bed separately. I'm not convinced it's enough to worry about. I'm loving the F 150 Supercrew vs my old trusty Chevrolet Colorado though.
