Thule 883 Glide and Set Reviews
Greg rated this item 5 out of 5 on 12/15/2008:
Easy to set up and load. Go buy a cheap bath map to cover the back end of the truck while loading and unloading as an additional safety option. Straps are a breeze to work with. Can't recommend this enough!
Thule 883 Glide and Set Questions

Im trying to figure out if I can buy 2 of these and use them side by side with my factory crossbars or if I will need to do something different.
In order to put 2 of the Thule 883 Glide and Set combo racks on your vehicle you will need to get an aftermarket set of crossbars. The Thule 450 Crossroad foot pack with 65 inch load bars should do fine depending on the width of the boats. If you have any questions give us a call.
