Rack was easy to install worked great for hauling my kayaks. There was an issue with some hardware missing but the replacement was sent quickly. 674646

This is a great rack. I have it installed on an A.R.E. Fiberglass topper shell. I have the aero bars and there is no wind noise, or effect on gad mileage. It was much less experience than the big names Y$T. It very sturdy and everything I was needing in a rack. I have used it to haul some large loads, mostly lumber. Take your time, measure, remeasure, mark and go for it. 670250

The Rhino Rack ladder rack system has been great! It fit nicely on my fiberglass camper top on my truck. The 63 inch rails were a little short since my truck has an 8 ft bed but I remedied that by ordering additional rails. By adding to the length of the rails it increased the distance between the cross bars which enabled me to haul longer items such as walkboards and ladders. Great product and would recommend it! 651005

Easy to order, arrived when Adam said it was and the online video made installation pretty straight forward. Very happy with the price and purchase! 525483

- Y02-490

Rack looks good so far. Seems strong. It took some time to put it on the shell. I didn’t quite follow the instructions. I thought it would be better to assemble the rack on the floor, square it up and then set it on the shell, measure all four corners to position it, mark and then continue on with the instructions. I wanted to make sure the tracks were parallel so that I could move the feet without adjusting the cross bars. I thought I ordered the black cross bars. I was bummed at first when I saw that they were silver, but now glad I got the silver. They don’t get nearly as hot in the sun. 496958

- Y02-490

This rack is working great. Have it installed on the topper of my truck and have mounted Kayak racks to the top of it. The ability to remove the bars is great for me. That way I can install them quickly only when I need them. Very sturdy system and should last a long time. 466673

I love this Rhino Roof Rack! I own a small business that manufactures teardrop trailers and I use these on them. They are easy to install and look really nice. This is my 5th set purchased from etrailer. Quality product. 111540

All of these kits include a set of Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbars that have c-channel mounts and are quick-slide to move forward and backwards along the rack as you need it.

  • Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack with 65 Inch Bars for a 2015 Toyota Tundra Camper Shell
  • We sure do have some Rhino-Rack camper shell racks with 65 inch long Vortex bars that you can use on your 2015 Toyota Tundra. The only question is do you want silver, # Y02-500, or black, # Y02-500B? If you do not already have paddleboard and kayak carriers I can make some recommendations. For paddleboards the Thule SUP Shuttle, # TH811XT, is a great option. It can carry up to 2 paddleboards. I have linked some videos for you on these carriers. And for a kayak carrier the Rhino-Rack...

  • Installing Rhino-Rack Track Mount Roof Rack System # YO6-560 on 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The Rhino-Rack Track Mount Roof Rack System # YO6-560 is intended for use on hard resin tops without headliners and requires drilling for installation of the two 63-inch-long tracks that run front-to-back. The two 44-inch crossbars can be positioned anywhere along the 63-inch tracks to accommodate different-size loads. According to my contact at Rhino-Rack this kit is supplied with gasket material that goes between the bottom of the tracks and the surface of your hardtop and the tracks...

  • Roof Rack Option for Class C Motor Home to Carry SUPs
  • Roof racks that are compatible with a Class C motor home are few and far between, but a track-mounted, adjustable roof rack system like the Rhino-Rack System with Heavy-Duty Crossbars # Y01-140 or Aero Crossbars # Y02-490 is not your only option to carry your SUPs on top of your motor home. Since there are not custom fit roof racks for motor homes, a system that installs into the frame of the motorhome along the top edge of the roof is the way to go. You will want to install the crossbar...

  • Recommended Roof Bike Rack Compatible with Rhino Rack Vortex Roof Rack
  • There are many options of Bike Racks compatible with your Rhino Rack Vortex Roof Rack, # Y02-490 . I would recommend the Yakima Raptor Aero Roof Mounted Bike Carrier # Y02093 for your BMX bike. This bike rack clamps to the frame of your bike for added support and safe travel. The arm clamps to the middle frame of your bike, so the arms avoid the wheels. This rack also attaches directly into the channels of the crossbars. This rack has a lock to secure the carrier to the crossbars and...

  • Roof Racks Recommended for Use on Motor Home Roof to Hold Kayaks and Surfboards
  • We offer several types of water-sport carriers for kayaks and surfboards including both rack-mount types and foam block designs that require no roof rack at all. These are quite lightweight and cost-effective; this type can be seen on the link provided. Of course we also offer a range of rack-mount water-sport carriers as well. These rack-mount carriers are generally chosen based on the shape of the roof rack crossbars employed. I have linked two pages on our site, one for kayak carriers...

  • We do have a roof rack that willl work for your Little Guy camper but the # Y02-490 would not work because it uses steel tracks and they will not fit the curved roof. The roof rack I recommend is the Swagman Roamer LT Roof Rack, part # S80510. This roof rack includes square crossbars that can be cut to fit your roof and feet that are installed permanently installed. The roo frack has a weight capacity of 150-lbs.

  • Tonneau Cover Ladder Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation
  • Yes, you could install a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Aero Crossbars # Y02-490 on the tonneau cover of your truck and then install a kayak carrier to it to carry your kayak. For a kayak carrier to go along with this rack I would recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier part # S512. Check out the review video I attached for this rack as well to the right.

  • Can Roof Rack Be Mounted to the Roof of 2009 Forest River Sunseeker 2600
  • The SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack # SR1020 can be mounted to the roof of your 2009 Forest River Sunseeker 2600 as long as the trailer is no larger than 85-1/2 inches wide. If the SportRack does not fit, another option is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-490 which has 63 inch tracks that are mounted to the roof of your RV. To carry both surf boards on the rack you may be interested in the Thule SUP Shuttle # TH811XT.

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation For 2015 Ram 2500 With Camper Shell
  • I spoke with my contact at Rhino-Rack about distributing the weight between your truck cab and camper shell. They do sell half rack roof racks. For your truck's single crossbar, you will want to use # DK043H, # RRVA150S, and # RRRLKVAH. This will provide you with one crossbar on your truck. The crossbars for the camper shell only come in pairs. The crossbars you referenced, # Y02-490-NT are crossbars that fit in a track, but that part number does not include a track. If you need the...

  • I do have a solution for you to mount a roof rack to your tonneau cover, but the item you selected, Rola Roof Rack, part # 59833, will not work. What you can use is the Rhino Rack Roof Rack, part # Y02-490, which is designed to attach to tonneau covers. Then you could use the Rhino Rack Roof Cargo Carrier, part # RLBM-U.

  • Ladder Rack/Roof Rack for 2013 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab with Camper Shell
  • The Erickson Over-The-Cab Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Steel - 800 lbs # EM07707 will not work with a truck cap over the bed of the truck. For a ladder rack that is a fit for your 2013 Toyota Tacoma with camper shell, I recommend the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT. I've attached a video of a similar installation to assist. This is the only confirmed fit ladder rack. The carrying capacity is limited only by the shell of your cap. If you are interested...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a Cover Master Camper Shell with Premium Headliner
  • A headliner has some give in it and the parts of roof rack mounting feet that go on the inside of the camper shell need to touch the structural surface of the roof. The headliner is in the way so what you can do is trim the headliner in the 4 places that the hardware will be on the inside of the camper. For this I recommend Rhino-Rack roof rack # Y03-330. It will sandwich the roof of the camper shell and the external feet will mount to the top part of that sandwich. But like I said...

  • Total Height of Rhino-Rack Track Mounted Rack # Y02-490
  • The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars - Track Mount - Black - 59" Long # Y02-490 will be well under 1 foot. The leg height is listed as 3 inches, the crossbar height is 1-1/2 inches, and the track is approximately 1/2 inch tall. You will be at right around 5 inches above your roof so well under the 12 inches for clearance. I've attached a photo to assist with a better angle for the dimensions.

  • The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars - Track Mount # Y02-490 will work on a pop-up camper.

  • Rhino Rack Roof Rack Recommendation for Fitting Camper Shell Installed on 2012 GMC Sierra 1500

The dynamic weight capacity of this rack is 220 lbs so it also wouldn't have a problem with a tent as long as your camper shell is also rated for the weight.

  • Does Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Aero Crossbars # Y02-490 Have Capacity for Roof Tent
  • While the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-490 that you referenced has the needed weight capacity for a roof top tent you'd have to check with the manufacturer of the tonneau cover to make sure it also has the needed weight capacity. We don't carry the brand of tonneau you have but i was able to find one source that indicated it has a 500 lb capacity which would easily be enough, but you should still verify this.

  • Ladder Rack Compatible with Truxedo Pro X 15 Tonneau Cover on 2019 Ram 1500
  • The TruXedo Pro X15 tonneau cover that fits the 2019 Ram 1500 5-1/2 foot bed without Rambox is the cover part # TX1485901. Since this cover installs inside the bed rails a compatible ladder rack will be one that installs on top of the bed rails so that it does not interfere with the cover. Such racks include the track-type Rhino-Rack Vortex systems like the 59-inch # Y02-490B-ST (black) and # Y02-490 (silver). These appear on the linked page with similar systems.

  • Roof Rack System to Carry a Kayak and Two Bikes on a 2010 Toyota Tundra with a Truck Bed Shell

Once you have the roof rack installed you can use the Rhino-Rack Kayak Carrier # S512 for the kayak. This carrier folds down when not in use. Add the Malone QuickLash Hood Loops # MPG308 to make it easier to secure the bow and stern. Then I recommend 2 of the Thule UpRide # TH599000 for the bikes....
