Thule Rack for Stelvio (photos)

Thule rack on Stelvio. I had to order and ship it from the UK as Thule doesn't sell the fit kit for the Stelvio in the US. After the VAT rebate, the cost was about the same (including shipping). roofracks.co.uk.

Nice! Can it be positioned anywhere along the rail? It just at the points with the indents?

same question as above, and what is the weight capacity?

I positioned the rack where the indents were but it could go anywhere. The front rail looks a bit forward to me but if I move it back, the surfboard will stick upwards as the front rack will be higher than the back.

I don't know the weight limit but it is on the Thule UK site.

good to know it can be moved for different loads - like a kayak or plywood maybe.
150 pounds, plenty.
I never realized all those extra bits that attach to the rack (for ladders, kayaks etc) were so pricey

Good to know - thanks for sharing the info - as I hope to be taking delivery this week, and will be wanting to get roof bars for carrying bicycles.

Does anyone here know if it is possible to retrofit rails?
