Video Transcript for Review of Rhino Rack Roof Rack Accessories - Fairing for Pioneer Platforms - RR43249

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at and we're going to be taking a quick look at the fairings for your Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform Roof Rack. So a lot of times whenever you're carrying that platform rack from Rhino Racks, the Pioneer, it allows you to carry all kinds of gear up on the top of your vehicle, allows for a lot more space, but it can also be kind of a drag, meaning that it can cause some drag from the wind resistance and also can cause kind of a whistling or a howling sound from that platform. So this is going to help to relieve some of those problems or alleviate some of them and make sure that you aren't going to have that uncomfortable of an experience with your platform rack.It helps, again, to reduce the drag. It makes it a little bit more aerodynamic, allows the wind to go up and over the platform rack and your gear so you're not going to be encountering as much wind resistance. That should also help with the wind sound as well.

It probably won't completely eliminate it, but it should help.So there's three different sizes, kind of depends on what size rack you have as far as which one will work. The smallest is the 44 inch fairing that works for the Pioneers that are 49 inches wide. The one in the middle is 50 inches. That will work for your Pioneer racks that are 52 inches wide. And then, for 54 inches wide, excuse me.

And then there's a 52 inch fairing, that's the biggest one, and that will work for all of your 56 inch wide platform racks.So choose your size accordingly. This one in particular that I have on my table is the one in the middle. This is the 50 inch wide. So the largest one would be a little bigger than this. The smallest would be a little bit smaller.But all of them are going to have the same features.

They're going to go together mostly the same. It does come with pretty good instructions on how to get everything put together. Really, you only will need this little tool that it comes with to put the hardware together. It comes as just this piece, with then some braces on the back.So that's pretty much the majority of the assembly, is just putting those in place. The way you do that is by using these little plastic rivets, these little push pin fasteners.

So they, as the name suggests, you just push them in and the little barbs on there hold them in place. So pretty easy to put those on. If one happens to get messed up or damaged, you can just cut off the top. Mine did happen to have one extra so you might have an extra as well. I think these are available as a replacement part so if something should ever happen, you can replace those out pretty easily.At the bottom of the fairing, it does have a little Santoprene rubber foot to help protect your vehicle and then it also comes with a little sort of rubbery material to go underneath that. So those two things are going to be in contact with each other, rather than the fairing itself rubbing and bumping against the finish on your vehicle. So just mount this on, clean off an area that's going to be right below this. You'll probably want to put this on after you get everything assembled and you kind of figure out where the fairing is going to be, and then put these under each of those places where it's going to make contact.It should come with plenty. I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12. And there's only six spots that you would need for this one. So you should have double what you need to get that in place.It's made of a durable ABS plastic so that's going to be UV resistant and pretty impact resistant as well. Rhino Rack is a really trusted name in the industry. They make really nice rugged stuff. They always test everything really well so this should be no exception there. It is covered by a five-year warranty.And that's pretty much all there is to it for our look at the fairings from Rhino Rack, for your platform, for your Pioneer Platform Rack. I hope this has been helpful in deciding if this is the right accessory for you. We do have a lot of other accessories from Rhino Rack and more here at So check them out. Thanks for watching.

Rhino-Rack Fairing for Pioneer Platforms - 44" Long - RR43249

Aerodynamic fairing deflects wind around your Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform to reduce noise and drag. Padded feet protect your vehicle's roof. Mounting hardware included.


Packing arrive in excellent shape, all parts and equipment were as described.


I can’t say I’m 100% with Rhino Rack’s solution to cutting down wind noise eminating from their Pioneer Platform. Fairing looks good, well built, but the wind noise is the same as before. Tested it with a Db meter and it was confirmed. I’m keeping the item (maybe it will help with gas mileage.....maybe not), but it’s not as Rhino Rack claims.

On another note: Etrailer’s delivery service was great! We live on a rural country road and Amazon has taken to using USPS for delivery (2 day “guaranteed” changes to 5 day). Glad to see that ETrailer uses UPS!


Good design but with one minor flaw. Comes with two different lengths of connection blocks (2 large, 3 small) that install between the platform planks. The larger ones go between the two outer most slats. However they are about 1/8 inch too long and can’t fit between the slats so you will have to trim to fit. Otherwise, the installation was smooth. Took for a test run and it does help reduce wind noise from the rack.


The product looks good and installation was not difficult although with the backbone system there is not a lot of room to work with (only 3" from roof to bottom of rack). This limits the distance the fairing can be moved to the front of the rack which in turn makes it more difficult to form fit the fairing on the outsides to the roof. I spent quite a bit of time trying to get the fairing pads, on the outside, to touch the roof. I took the 4Runner out on the highway 80+ mph and the wind noise is substantially less than without the fairing. I don't know about the gas mileage impact yet but am hoping for a slight improvement. I also purchased the rhino rack from etrailer and they are Great! Again the shipment was fast, packed well, and no missing parts. etrailer is a "Go To Supplier" in my opinion.


Looks perfect on my rig... super quick shipping and much better price than the manufacturer.

  • Which Wind Fairing Can Be Used on a Rhino Rack Universal Pioneer Platform
    I have a solution for you, but there is not a fairing solution that will mount directly to a universal Pioneer platform like the # RR42115BF; all of the fairings designed for the Pioneer platform are designed to fit specific platforms and not the universal model. Instead, you can mount a fairing directly to the crossbars under the platform. If you've got Rhino Rack aero style crossbars you can use the Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 44" Long # RRRF3, which is the same size of the Rhino-Rack...
