So are these the same racks that Tim has on special this month?Munch said:We purchased the Thule Ski racks from Acura, they go on and off with a phillips head screw driver, not real easy to do but not bad. Work well carrying ski also, plus they have the cooooool Acura label
I cannot find the post of the person who outlined that particular VW adapter. I remember that the person mentioned about the need to modify/customize the spacer or the bolt since the X cross bar is thicker or curved.s2ktaxi said:Would the VWADAPT solution work in this case? or is the mount totally different?

Thanks Ard, mine are wood & gut models too, classics. Now I'll have more room for that bunch of sled dogs I haul around in back of the X...ardvarkus said:Ghost-
Yep, I think they would-
The Thule rack (I have the bigger one, six pair) has a thick rubber extrusion that clamps down onto the skis. It really isn't foam rubber, more like a hollow 'fin'. It is a nice compromise between deformability and snugness.
I can easily clamp down onto the handle of a ski pole, which is probably as thick as snow shoes (even those wood and moose gut ones I have out in the shed...)
