Video Transcript for Review of Rhino Rack Roof Rack - Retrax XR Tonneau Covers - RRVA180B-RRRLT600

Today we'll be taking a look at the Rhino-Racks Vortex Cross Bar System for the Retracts XR Series Tunnel Covers. This is a unique system in that it gives you access to not only your tunnel cover, but it'll also give you some space to put some items above that tunnel cover while you're using it. The Retracts XR Series has a tunnel that our feet will fit into. Now that retracts tunnel cover is sold separately. You can find a lot of fits here at etrailer.com if you don't already have one, but if you do, this is just going to mount up to those channels that are already installed on your truck bed and allow you to have a little bit more usable space on top of that tunnel cover.So we'll get our two 71 inch long crossbars from Rhino-Rack. They're just the same as those Vortex Aero Crossbars that we've come to know and love for our roof rack systems.

Now whenever you get it in the mail, all the weather stripping is going to be inside that bar. So you can see we'll have these little slots on the end, these little strips. That's going to be what actually goes underneath to take up the gap there and prevent any wind noise and drag from driving us crazy as we're going down the road. So we don't get any howling or whistling there and then if we open up this cap at the end, we can actually find our weather stripping to go on the top.Those caps do lock with the use of this little blue piece. This is the key from Rhino-Rack.

Just turn that and get that to stay in place. With that inside, our extruded aluminum bar will have all of our rubber pieces. So you can tip it up and then shake it out. All of those rubber pieces will fall out and then you can put those in the top. They do come in little segments so you can get them running between your accessories and make it a little bit easier to get everything put in place if you're using the T track up top.Of course any of our accessories that use a strap system can just go right around that Vortex Aero bar and clamp down in place.

The feet are a lightweight . Or they're going to be a very durable, glass reinforced nylon construction so they don't fade or crack over time in the sun. They also give us a little bit of adjustability as far as getting our bars leveled out. It has about a 33 degree range, so we can adjust that to get it leveled out. And this is what they'll actually look like on your retracts crossbars.

This little block is what will slide into the channel with the hardware and then the foot will go on top.If we have our cover taken off, this is what it looks like inside. So we'll have these two little red pieces that will operate the knobs on either side, and that's going to be what actually fits down in place to get everything secured. So if we flip that out, that little peg pops out of place and it'll sit in that channel. Squeeze those together and kind of push in and we can drop it into our foot. So it's really easy to take these on and off. That's one of the really nice things about this system is that the crossbars are very easy to remove whenever we don't want to use them.Whenever you're not using that crossbar, it does come with a little cap to go over those knotting points to keep those clean and free of any debris. And again, whenever we're done using our crossbars, just push in those red tabs, pop that out of place, put the cap over the top and it just snaps down over that foot.So I think this is a really nice system. It's going to let you use your truck and still have kayaks, canoes, lumber, anything that you'd want to be transporting on your tunnel cover or on your crossbar system here, on top of your tunnel cover. So you can store all your sleeping bags, your tools, coolers, and everything inside your truck bed and cover it up with that tunnel cover and keep it safe.So it's going to make the most of your system, make the most of your space in your truck and give you the piece of mind of a really sturdy, very nice, easy to use system from Rhino-Rack. It has a weight capacity of 220 pounds. So it's not really intended to be used for any kind of camping system. A lot of people out there are using roof racks for over landing and having the tent systems on top. But it's not really intended to be used for that so definitely check with your owner's manual and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended weights for that.This is intended for full sized trucks with that Retracts SR Series Tunnel Cover. Again, our crossbar measures 71 inches long. We do get two of those and then it's 3 and an eighth inch wide and 1 and 3/16th inches tall. The height of those legs from that channel to the top of the foot is about 3 inches there, and then that's where our bar will sit on top.It comes with the locks so our covers can be locked in place. Whenever we clip those out and lock it up, something I like about that design too is that this can't lock if these red tabs are pushed in, even if we have only one pushed in, we're just not going to be able to get that cover to close. So that's a nice design there that you always know if the locking cap goes in place, that it's actually secured on the foot. It comes with two keys and all the hardware to get it installed.And that's going to do it for our look at the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for the Retracts XR Series Tunnel Cover.

Recieved the product in 2 days. Instructions were accurate and clear. Product was well built and fit my ReTrax ProXR tonneau cover as prescribed in ad ons. Installed and compliments the look of my 2019 F-150. Never had a cargo system that fit above the tonneau cover so this was a first. Couldn't be happier with the look. 714154

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Roof Rack Recommendations for Installing on RetraxONE Tonneau Cover
  • We have a few options for crossbar sets that are designed to add crossbars to the RetraxONE Tonneau Covers like the part # RTT-60422 that you referenced. For a set of 70 inch long Yakima JetStream bars you'd want the part # Y00427-482104 or for 70 inch Corebar you'd want the part # Y00423-482104. Or for a Rhino Rack Vortex Crossbar system you'd want the # RRVA180B-RRRLT600. Since the quality between Yakima and Rhino Rack is basically the same I'd go with the Rhino Rack since the price...

  • What Size Crossbars Do I Need To Use with the PowertraxONE XR on a 2018 Ford F-150
  • The correct size crossbar to use on the bed of your 2018 Ford F-150 with the PowertraxONE XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails part # RTT-70373 is 71" which means the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers part # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 is what you will need to use. The 65" long crossbar in the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers part # RRVA165B-RRRLT600 is designed for mid-size trucks like a Tacoma, Ranger, or Colorado.

  • Thule, Yakima, and Rhino Rack Ladder Racks to Fit Retrax XR Tonneau of 2018 GMC Sierra 2500
  • For a full sized truck like your 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 short bed that has the RetraxOne XR tonneau part # RTT-80462 the Rhino Rack load bar setup part number # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 would be a great fit and matches what you are looking for. I attached a picture of this rack installed on a truck bed like yours and we found that didn't overhang past the bed rails. These bars are 71 inches long as well. If you'd prefer something a little shorter the Overhaul HD part # Y01151-58 with the adapter...

  • Will the Thule FreeRide TH532 Work with Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars
  • Yes, you can use the Thule FreeRide Rooftop Bike Carrier TH532 on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System. I have attached a photo which shows the dimensions of the channel inside the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for you. This channel as you can see measures 7/8" wide which is about 22mm therefore you won't have any issues with the Thule FreeRide. I spoke to my contact at Rhino-Rack and they said since the tracks are spaced 58" apart on center you will want to use the Rhino-Rack Vortex...

  • Using Roof Top Tent with RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover and Crossbars on Toyota Tacoma
  • The RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails # RTT-80851 for your 2018 Toyota Tacoma will pair nicely with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System # RRVA180B-RRRLT600, which features a 220 pound weight capacity. You can absolutely use a roof top tent with this setup but you will want to go with one like the Yakima SkyRise # Y07436 that uses a ladder for additional support. This particular tent just requires that the crossbars have a minimum weight capacity of 165 pounds so it will...

  • The RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover that fits the 2019 Toyota Tundra 5-1/2-foot bed with the deck rail system is part # RTT-80841 and this cover can be fitted with 65-inch Rhino-Rack crossbars. Order # RRVA165B-RRRLT600. Install instructions are linked for you.

  • Do the Locks Come with the Rhino-Rack System for Retrax Tonneau Covers?
  • The Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 does come with the integrated locks you see. Rhino-Rack is one of the bigger brand names that still offers the locks with their products versus requiring a separate purchase. There is one upgrade that is an additional cost and it is if you want the metal locks for the end of the crossbars. If you desire that feature you can use # RRVA-LEC4. This further secures any track mounted carriers...

  • What is the Best Tonneau Cover and Bed Mat for 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor
  • The tonneau cover that I recommend for your 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor is the PowertraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover part # RTT-90373. The PowertraxPRO XR has two really great features that allow it to stand out from the competition, a power retracting cover that can be set and locked at different points along the bed rails and integrated tracks so you can haul items without sacrificing bed space. The PowertraxPRO XR is constructed of several aluminium top panels for extreme durability but...

  • Recommend Crossbars For Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover On a Ford F-150
  • You are correct, a 60" crossbar would be too short to span the width of your 2018 Ford F-150. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System part # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 which comes with 71" long crossbars and will work with both the Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers as well as the Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Covers. This is one of the most cost effective all-in-one kits we offer for the track systems on either of the above tonneau covers. If you want a Thule option you would have...

  • Best Rack for the Retrax XR Series Tonneau Cover on a 2019 Ford F-250
  • Yes, the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers part # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 will absolutely work with the RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails on your 2019 Ford F-250. It is actually designed specifically for this. The 71" long crossbar will be just what you need. I called my contact at Retrax to confirm.

  • Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Tacoma Long Bed that Can Have Roof Rack Installed
  • The only tonneau cover we have for your 2019 Toyota Tacoma long bed that can have the Rhino Rack roof rack part number # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 installed is the Pace Edwards UltraGroove part # 311-KMTA09A37. There isn't a way to install the rack on a Retrax PowerPro XR as there isn't a channel system.

  • Tonneau Cover and Crossbar Kit to Fit 2004-2007 Ford F-150 6-1/2 ft Bed
  • Sounds like you have a 2004 through 2007 Ford F-150 with a 6-1/2 foot bed that you are wanting to install a tonneau cover and crossbars above the bed on. I have a great solution for that but we don't have a way to do that with a Truxedo Sentry CT. Instead you'd want the Retrax XR part # RTT-60312 which fits your truck and has a rail system designed for a Rhino Rack roof rack setup like # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 which was specifically designed for the XR Retrax tonneaus.

  • Will the RockyMounts TomaHawk Work with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System
  • Yes, you can use a different brand of bike rack like the RockyMounts TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack part # RKY1222 or the Thule SideArm 594XT with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System. The reason for this is because the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System uses a standard 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall crossbar that will be compatible with pretty much any rooftop accessory that works with aero crossbars whether that be from Yakima, Rola, or in this case RockyMounts and Thule. The only disadvantage of...

  • Can Roof Rack Tent be Used with RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover
  • The RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails # RTT-80851 will pair nicely with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System # RRVA180B-RRRLT600, which features a 220 pound weight capacity. You can absolutely use a roof top tent with this setup but you will want to go with one like the Yakima SkyRise # Y07437 that uses a ladder for additional support. This particular tent just requires that the crossbars have a minimum weight capacity of 165 pounds so it will work great for this application.

  • What Roof Rack Kits Will Work with the RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Covers

Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System part # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System part # Y00423-482104 (No Channel) Yakima JetStream Crossbar System part # Y00427-482104 (Channel) Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # Y01151-5955 Yakima OutPost HD Mid-Height Truck Rack...

  • Mid Height Ladder Rack Recommendation for Retrax XR Tonneau Cover Rails
  • I have a better option for you to consider, but there isn't a way to use taller Rhino Rack feet with the rack you mentioned so you'd be best off with the Yakima OutPost HD part # Y01152-5855 which is a mid-height rack that fits the same Retrax XR tonneau cover rails. The upright height of this is 13 inches above the truck bed rails.

  • Crossbar System Compatible with OEM Ford Retractable Tonneau Cover T-Slots on 2019 F-150 Raptor
  • I was able to confirm through my contact at Retrax that the T-channels on your 2019 Ford Raptor OEM tonneau Cover, model number VJL3Z84501A42A, share the same dimensions as the T-channels on the RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails # RTT-80373, confirmed to fit the same truck. This is true because Retrax helps to manufacture some of the components for the Ford tonneau covers. With that in mind, the correct Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for your F-150 is # RRVA180B-RRRLT600,...

  • Rhino-Rack Crossbar System for Retrax XR Tonneau Cover Channels
  • The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-480B-ST that you referenced will technically work to mount to the integrated rails on your Retrax XR Tonneau Cover, however we can provide a better option that doesn't leave you stuck with unnecessary rails. What you can do is simply piece together the system (without the rails) using the Quick Mount Legs # RRRLT600 and a set of Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, such as the the 54" # RRVA137B-2 that come included with the system you were looking...

  • What Is the Correct Rhino-Rack System For a Toyota Tacoma with Retrax XR Series Tonneau Cover
  • The correct Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers that you will want to use on a mid-size truck like your Toyota Tacoma is part # RRVA165B-RRRLT600 which has 65" long crossbars. The part # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 which has 71" long crossbars will be used on full-size trucks like a Toyota Tundra.

  • Can A Roof Rack Be Used On Both a Retrax XR Tonneau Cover and a 2017 Ford F-250
  • It sounds like you have a Retrax XR Series Tonneau Cover on a 2017 Ford F-250 and what to transfer a roof rack back and forth from the cab to the bed. If that is the case then you will want to use the Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System part # Y00423-482104 instead of the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System part # RRVA180B-RRRLT600. The reason for this is that the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars have slots underneath which the mounting feet attach to and these slots do not go in far enough to accommodate...

  • Is Yakima FrontLoader Bike Rack Compatible with Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
  • Yes, the Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 is compatible with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers # RRVA180B-RRRLT600. The Rhino-Rack crossbars come with a plastic lock core but you can upgrade them to metal with part # RRVA-LEC4, and then the FrontLoader comes with a lock for the bike so if you'd like to add a lock for the rack as well you can either wait to see what lock core number comes with the bike lock or you can go ahead and order kit # Y07202...

  • Will The Yakima SweetRoll Carrier Fit The Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars for Retrax XR Tonneau Covers
  • The Yakima SweetRoll Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # Y04074 fit crossbars up to 3-1/2" wide and 1-11/16" tall so you will not have an issue clamping the SweetRoll system to the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System part # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 that measure 71" long x 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall. The feet of the system fits into the channels of the XR hard tonneau covers with Trax Rails.
