I ordered these racks for my 2011 Mazda Tribute w/ a naked roof. The quality and ease of assembly was remarkable. I use the racks for loading surfboards (longboards 9 ft to 10 ft.) and they are exactly what I needed!!! I would highly recommend this product. The helpful folks at were great. The product arrived on time with no hassles and the price was less than the factory system which was far less robust. Cheers. 136891

Review from a similar Roof Rack DK in Roof Rack

Fits my 2013 Ford C-Max Energi perfectly and seems quite sturdy and durable. Installation was a bit confusing because some of the markings on the parts were extremely faint and difficult to see. But once I figured out what each part was, the process was pretty straightforward. All in all this is an exceptional deal for a product that more than adequately replaces what the big name brands (T***e or Y****a) have to offer and and a much more affordable price. Also, was a great company to do business with. The price was right, the shipping was extremely fast, and the customer service was absolutely the best. 115264


I have had the rack for a year now and to be perfectly honest, my original review is still dead on. I have absolutely zero complaint about this rack. I dont leave the rack on all the time, so Im attaching and removing it on a regular basis. Its easy to use and rock solid for carrying bikes. Ive used it with no issues with 3 bikes, even fairly heavy mountain bikes.

Review from a similar Roof Rack DK in Roof Rack

I have every Yakima roof rack and accessory for all my past and present cars. I have been using them since 1991. We recently bought a Lincoln MKT and to my surprise, Yakima nor Thule make a roof rack solution. The only one I found online is this one. Etrailer had it for less than the manufacturer website. At first, I was apprehensive since there were no reviews about this rack on my car and etrailer called me to tell me that they needed to wait for the clamps, since it was not in stock (must be because of the rarity of this car). The installation instructions was initially daunting, but after watching some videos online from the manufacturer website and figuring out the assembly, everything went smooth. After installation, I was amazed at the quality of this rack. Fit was ok, but for some reason the rear door feet are not split level like the front door feet, since the rear pad sits across a gap on the roof (hopefully this does not impact carrying capacity). Regardless, the rack appears solid and does not scratch or dent the car in anyway, nor impede the function of the large panoramic roof. I'll report back if I have any issues after I load it up with some standup paddleboards. Overall, pretty happy with purchase. 119866

Review from a similar Roof Rack DK in Roof Rack

I received THREE different sets of instructions for the 2500, plus the PDF I was prompted to download...REALLY confusing. I have put together all kinds of furniture, including a 3' x 6' armoire (I am a 5' tall woman), installed paneling and flooring, including carpet in my van, installed bathroom tiles, built closet storage 'out of my head' and from plans, pulled and installed a car radiator/brake and clutch pedals assembly/starter assembly during the course of my 56 years on this earth...but I have never, never, never had such a difficult time making sense of 'too much information'...please go over the instructions and combine what needs to be combined and separate the info for the different vehicles!!! I am pleased with the outcome as far as the overall sturdiness of the product and I look forward to making use of this system. Besides the assembly instruction difficulties, I am disappointed in the fact that I bought the lock sets for each crossbar, only to see that the insides of each of the legs is exposed... ??? Please consider that in future design 'tweaks'. 120419

Review from a similar Roof Rack DK in Roof Rack

The pads have held very well.. I was somewhat skeptical at first, simply due to the amount of fishing poles I was going to be mounting on top of the entire system.(up to 7 poles, ranging from 7 up to 13 foot surf rods, with reels) However, I was very impressed and still am. Great holding power with no damage to paint at all!! 91146


The whole system, after a year has held up great . I have never needed to retighten or readjust the cross pieces or the rack which attaches on top.. All my poles have done fantastic, plus a recently added 9 foot Chritmas Tree.Great Product! Thank you

Review from a similar Roof Rack DK in Roof Rack

The package was delivered in time and contained all the components needed. However, the assembly instruction was not up to date. It was claimed that it could be installed on Hyundai Sonata 4dr sedan “2010 on”. But when I followed the instructions precisely I ended up with assembled racks, which could not be fitted to the roof of my 2014 Hyundai Sonata. First, I wanted to send it back, but because I was moving and the racks were badly needed within short time, I decided to fit it to my car myself. It took 4 disassembling & reassembling, modifying the bar lengths and their positions on the roof each time, while finally they were OK. It took about 4 hours total time, although I am a technical guy. They are only OK because they do not fit perfectly to the roof. It is because the rubber pads have only 1-dimensional rotation, while a perfect fit would need at least 2-dimensional rotation. It holds strong now, nevertheless, I would not recommend it to my friends because of all this hassle. 173004

I want to let you know that I really appreciate the help, speed and quality of service you provided to me. Actually you saved the day for me, I was struggling with other web suppliers to order the roof rack, they were either not knowledgeable to know the correct configuration for my car or they did not have the part in stock and needed a long lead time. My time was very short as I am moving in a few days, I called Rhino roof rack manufacturer and asked them who is their top dealer and they referred me to you. I am very grateful for your help and the shipping the roof rack the same day I called! 47676

I purchased the Rhino Rack Series for my 2014 Nissan Altima. I needed it rather quickly for a bike trip I was taking so I ordered expedited shipping. Almost immediately the staff advised me via phone call and email that the product could not be expedited due to it not being readily available in the distribution center. Although I was disappointed, I appreciated the emails and phone calls and began to think up options for transporting my bike. The staff indicated they would keep me updated as they looked for a solution. And then, the next day, I got an email to say my product shipped and would be here on time! I was so excited! The team at etrailer was amazing from start to finish. They figured out how to make it happen! They were excellent at communicating and the product arrived in good shape and had everything I needed, including the Spec Sheet for my car. I would definitely order from them again. Now we'll see how the rack does on the trip! 204582

Review from a similar Roof Rack DK in Roof Rack

When I first opened the box there were two screws and bolts that are critical to the fastnening of the feet assembly that were simply rolling around in the box. Had these components rolled out of the box, I would have been pretty well stuck. Also the "DK" measuring chart was NOT included with the directions. I would have been unable to properly place the rack on the roof without it. However, I called E-Trailer and explained my circumstance. Nicki quickly resolved this dillemma by e-mailing me the needed info. I then completed the assembly and mounted the Rhino rack on the car roof. I am pleased with the rack; it assembled relatively easily and fits the car well. However, E=Trailer should contact the vendor and make Rhino Rack aware of the faults I noted. Thanks E-trailer for the superior customer support. I will return for future purchases as needed. Sincerely, Bob Dames 7-26-13 91669

Review from a similar Roof Rack DK in Roof Rack

The Rhino Rack fits my 2009 Honda Fit perfectly and I am impressed with the construction and apparent durability. I am able to attach my L-shaped kayak brackets and travel safely to my destination. I recommend this product to others looking for a reliable rack but scared off by the high prices at Thule and Yakima. The only problem I had was with the crossbar endcaps. A key is required to lock them safely in place. The plastic key was delivered in the runner space in the crossbar and no mention was made of this in the instructions. Subsequently I did not identify them as the required keys and had to contact the manufacturer for clarification.The pictures of the crossbars on the product packaging and in the installation instructions were different than the endcaps I received. Once this was resolved all proceeded smoothly. I recommend this rack to all. 147704

Quick shipping and great product! Have only been using it for a week or so, but it fits well on my car, is very quiet and has worked well to haul our 2 kayaks (when paired with our kayak attachment sold separately). The instructions were helpful, however, it skipped explaining the step where you need to measure your car width and cut the plastic guides on the bottom of the cross bars to the correct length in order for the feet to attach properly to the car. That was an easy and obvious quick fix, but would have been a nice to have it in the instructions before we got it together and realized it didnt fit on the car. 154010

The clamps work well on the contour of the CRV. I took a test drive, and did not encounter any problem. Aloha from Hawaii! 160515

Although I have not yet put the aero Rhino rack on my car and taken a trip (coming up) I have assembled the entire rack. I do appreciate the quality of construction and design. The product is better than I expected. I did watch the video on how to mount the rack on your vehicle, but I did not see a video on how to assemble the legs to the bar. I found it difficult to insert the clamps into the rubber pads. More documentation would be helpful, maybe there is a trick to it. Instructions on the best way to cut the measurement sticks would also be helpful. All and all, it looks like a great product for the price. 161077

I received the rack in an efficient manner. When I went to finally assemble it, I was missing a crucial part. Fear not, their customer service was good. Tamara got the part shipped to me. Then, myself and a surgeon (practically) tirelessly figured out how to assemble it. Terrible directions... Literally 2 hours later, it was done! Like magic... but not ;-) Proud to of got it done.

Just realize that this is not your OEM roof rack install. It doesn't use the mounting system provided on the car - simply "clamps on". I kinda wish I had known this before. I installed on a Mazda-CX-9. The brackets slightly get in the way of the door seal... and it adds some noticeable noise at high speeds. Overall I give it a good rating. It works, and seems durable and well built. The instructions could be improved a bit... I struggled there, but ultimately got it on and working, and it should fit my needs. I'll probably take it off the car when I'm not using it. Next time, I'll do OEM! 207153

I have to say that I was hesitant ordering from a company that of which we had never heard, but we did anyway. Fabulous decision! Shipping was fast. Company to consumer communication was right on the money. These took no time to install in addition to the crossbars we ordered. They fit on my SantaFe sport 2013 with panoramic sunroof fabulously. Looks just like the video vehicle. Bought them for a couple of ten foot kayaks. No slipping or shifting. Went up to 60mph. If you are hesitant, don't be.

I ordered this package along with the Rhino Roof Rack with Aero Crossbars; the specs provided by eTrailer made assembly completely trouble-free. Mounting the rack on my particular vehicle (Honda FIT) for the first time took precision; but future mounting will be completely effortless with the markings. What's more, delivery of my purchase was FAST and FREE. I placed my order on a Wednesday; it was shipped on Thursday and I had my order by Monday (particularly important in my case - since I was going camping that following weekend). Very happy with purchase. 81351

E-trailer takes the guesswork out of ordering a roof rack especially for a naked roof. All the parts arrived in one box. You must follow the instructions very close and confirm the spec sheet for your vehicle. By doing this the process was pretty easy but took a little time. This is a project you want to take your time with and you can still do it in 90 min to two hours. E-trailer is always my go to store for vehicle related items.

The Rhino rack packages are really logically set up. they arrived in two boxes- the racks in one, and the car specific material in the other. The setup and assembly is great- better than the other "Big" guys we are so familiar with. The only issue was the locks that came with the racks- took me quite a while and lots of silicone spray to get them working smoothly. The total package fits great and indicates they really think about the specific vehicle they set it up on. 185797

My order arrived sooner than I expected, which was great. The assembly was easy. The installation was trial and error as the crossbar instructions did not list my 2014 F-150 so I had to make some adjustments to the leg position for the racks to sit right. There were only three rubber buffer strips for each 59 inch bar which left gaps in the top which produce a whistle even at low speeds. The whistle is very ennying as I can here it even with the windows rooled up. 186145

Got it for Toyota Camry SE Was not that easy to install but got thru it. Nice and sturdy! VERY IMPORTANT thing to know: if both grooves top and bottom in the tracks are not filled in it will make a very annoying whistling sound anytime you drive over 20 miles per hour. SO- to fill in top use the supplied rubber inserts. To fill in the under grooves use the number strips that come with the rack. Trim to fit all exposed grooves.

I am stuck on part 7 of the setup. The instructions do not clearly state the measurement for cutting the bar strip pieces. It says to refer to the DK Specification sheet, but there's nothing clearly labeled as such within my package. Can you please tell me the exact measurements in cm needed to cut the bar strip pieces for the rhino rack 2500 series euro style roof rack on a 2009 toyota corolla.Thank you for the help. 161424


With the Euro Square Bars you also ordered, the strips for the front bar should be cut to 146mm or 14.6cm and the strips for the rear bar should be cut to 140mm or 14cm. These mesurements are specific to the 2009-2013 Toyota Corolla sedan. The strip measurements are found on page 1 of the instructions that come with the DK152 fitting kit. Find the row that matches your vehicle and the column that matches your bar type to find the correct lenghts.

  • Rhino Rack Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Escape
  • What you have on the roof of your 2008 Ford Escape is similar to a rain gutter in that it will direct water as it flows on the roof of your vehicle, but it is not the kind of rain gutter that would prevent you from installing a Rhino Rack roof rack. To see a picture of a traditional rain gutter with a Rhino Rack rain gutter mount # RL110S2 attached to it check out the picture I attached. To complete the install of a Rhino Rack roof rack for your vehicle you can use complete roof rack

  • Is a Fairing Required for a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack on a 2008 Ford Escape
  • Fairings actually are mostly for looks. They are not required and on many applications do not cut down on drag or noise. Aero bars like those on Rhino-Rack Vortex Series Roof Rack # RRVA118B-2 are aerodynamic enough to cut down on the noise and drag. Rhino-Rack does not offer a fairing except on their cargo basket, # RMCB.
