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

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

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

The Rhino Rack is a well designed product and very well made - The fit for my car worked well and it took about 45 minutes to assemble, adjust and install. It will work well for transporting bikes and surfboards. The assembly kit included a long shaft hex wrench and handle which made assembly and installation much easier. 707091

All the Rhino Rack products listed, ie Nautic kayak carrier,anchor straps,2500 series legs,and Vortex crossbars were shipped extremely quickly by etrailer, with exceptional customer assistance, and were all found to be of the highest quality materials. Installation was relatively simple with an assistant and the video by Rhino Rack was a valuable tool...once on my car, the system proved to be safe, secure and as sturdy as I could hope for. I would certainly recommend Rhino Rack systems in future, and will certainly rely on etrailer for any of my future needs. 662698

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


THE GENIUS OF A PERFECT SOLUTION It is not very often that a purchase for something as mundane as a utility device stirs such awe inspired appreciation and praise. I have just completed the installation of the RLCP Rhino Heavy Duty Canopy/Hard Tonneau Track Mount atop my A.R.E. Camper Shell. I am amazed at the attention to detail of each and every part which has been carefully engineered and perfectly manufactured. I am truly impressed by the genius of a perfect solution to my roof top cargo handling needs! From the mating surfaces of the injection molded towers and the lightweight, but durable extruded anodized aluminum crossbars, to the gentle contour of the rail stock to the camper rooftop, every single part has form, fit and function! The finished product is beautiful, durable, convenient, and for the money invested, economical. I give Five Stars of Praise to the Aussie friends at Rhino-Rack Australia Pty, Ltd. Equally praiseworthy is the superb performance of e-trailers, Inc. These folks distinguish themselves from the competition through their superior attributes of website presentation, pricing, order fulfillment and package integrity. This is a unique distribution partnership which is imbued with the highest standards of e-commerce. Job well done, everyone! 528546

This review is for the install. I will update it after I have had these rails in service for a while and can judge how well they stand up. First the instructions were very clear and I had no issues performing the assembly and installation. Once locked in place they appear to be very stable and secure. 641563

The product was well packaged and well buffered. The package came a day earlier than the scheduled arrival period. I used the instructions on the website and it took me only 15 Minutes to assemble it and another 20 to set it in my car. Im in love with how it looks on my Civic 2015 and would Highly recommend it to others. The company had a wonderful follow up, from the time I bought the product to its arrival and even after its arrival. Thumbs up to this wonderful team. Here are some pictures of the product on my Civic. 524507

I was looking for a good looking product to carry my two kayaks with our camper. the product arrived in the time they said it would and was packed very well. after reading other reviews on assembly it was suggested that you read the directions first. after reading the directions I couldn't find some rubber strips so I called you company and they were very friendly and helpful and I found them I just didn't look in the right place. then started to assembly the roof racks and within 25 min. they were installed. would recommend the product and company. 411346

I'm absolutely in love with Katie, my sales consultant for her great help & excellent follow up. Fully expecting cheap Chinese junk. I was delighted with the quality of the product, (Rhino Rack) which was received day after New Years. Pretty cool when order was placed Dec 29th. Simple illustrated instructions made pre assembly a snap. Wind chill is 2 below zero so I'm going to wait a day or so to mount to car. Two thumbs up from me! 331614

I bought the Rhino Rack 2500 Series Legs, the Vortex Aero Crossbars, the 2500 Series Custom Fit Kit for the 2500 Series Legs, and a Thule Portage Canoe Carrier. All items arrived when George said they would, and I was given status updates throughout the whole process. The website was helpful in letting me know that these kits are NOT all in one kits. That is probably the best feature of the site in that it lets you know based on your vehicle what total number of kits you will need. All said, the racks and carrier worked well in transporting my canoe across state lines. I highly recommend the site. 486963

I love my Rhino Vortex roof racks. They look great, are sturdy, and there is no wind noise up to 70 mph (haven't been on the freeway yet). eTrailer was great and made the proper component selection easy. Now, the -1 star... The instructions provided by Rhino were horrible or non-existent. The cross bar literally had no instructions and I couldn't even find them for my model online. Between being a handy guy and watching other Rhino videos on YouTube, I figure it out. Maybe most people have professional installers put them on. 375802

Love the Rhino rack! Sometimes I think I could stand the truck Grand Cherokee upside down on it! It was a little tricky to install, but once I found YouTube vids I was good to go.

Rack is very high quality. Quiet ride at all speeds. Installation video extremely helpful. The only issue I encountered was that the mounting bolts were bearly long enough to get through thickness of truck cap. I had to remove plastic thumb nuts and use thin fender washers to make it work. Very stressful situation after drilling 12 holes in my cap! These bolts need to be longer to allow for different thickness in caps. Otherwise, very satisfied with this rack. 603056

The Rhino Rack is very well made. I installed it my self on our 2016 Ford Escape, but had an assist from my wife to fine tune it at the end. There was no whistling or any other distracting wind noise on our 3,500 mile drive to visit family out West. A Sear's Cargo Box was easily mounted to the Rhino Rack and it remained centered and secured at western highway speed limits plus. The included locks on the roof mounts were the selling point for me. The Rhino Rack remained securely mounted to the roof with no additional adjustments or tightening being needed. Great Product. Donna P. @ etrailer was super with the order. 548034

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


These crossbars were easy to install, are sturdy when installed and look great on my factory side rails when installed with the SX Series legs. The standard end caps are an all-plastic affair and use a little key to engage a cam lock. That plus the distance from the end of the crossbar to the nut that tightens the foot onto the rail keeps things relatively secure. Most people probably want to opt for proper locking end caps, though. The rubber vortex strips look nice and give items something grippy to rest on. I haven't tried a load test yet but did drive around in moderate wind on the highway in multiple directions. Other than a slight whistle at 70 mph, you'd never know they were there. Overall, real happy with the product and looking forward to hauling some stuff around with them. 248807

Excellent price and quick shipping. Excellent support for missing bar end cap. Rack was easy to put together and install and video was helpful. My only complaint is when trying to tie down kayak to cradle it is not easy to keep the loop over the top of the upright "U" shaped bar, it keeps siding down. We wrapped two pieces of foam around the bar to create a channel to hold the strap now it is easy. 557941

My Rhino-Rack Aero 2500 roof racks fit solidly on my 2007 Honda Civic EX. I was really impressed with the construction and strength of the rack system. Also the versatility of the 'legs' with a swivel pad allow them to fit any roof pitch perfectly. The clamps are so solid, nothing could knock these racks off. I added a paddleboard attachment and went surfing today. The black racks also look great with the black trim on my silver Honda. Great product at a much better price than Yakima or Thule. 395557

The racks look great and are solidly anchored. I have yet to use them under load but I am pleased with the final product so far. My only complaint was that the assembly process is difficult to understand unless you Google the help videos. The assembly process is confusing and tedious until you gain an understanding of the overall setup. 413891

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


These slick looking, quality made, aluminum, aero bars came with the RLCP25 kit, to fit my FJ Cruiser. It didn't have the big, bulky, useless for carrying much of anything factory rack. I like the look of the full size racks/ baskets, but didn't want to spend $800 + truck freight to get one. These cross bars are perfect for carrying my 14' canoe, plus whatever else with various cargo carrying accessories. They are light, yet combined carry near 100+ lbs. of gear. There is a rubber strip in the top slot, bottom slots and plastic strips to seal those, once you slide the feet in the correct distance to be even on both sides for your vehicle, and black, plastic end caps to finish it off. You'll need a tape measure and 10mm socket wrench to attach to the feet, then re-tighten periodically for safety. They look great on mr ride, and I can deal with the rubbing/ humming sound, after putting them on, although it does sound like my tires rubbing the fender wells... 84838

Im still loving the Rhino Rack setup, including the Nautic 581 saddles. They bars were easy to remove for winter snow clearing, and to put back on in the Spring for my new kayak. The rack and straps all work great, and I recommend etrailer to anyone that asks where I got it.

Easy to read instructions, easy to install. Watched the install video a few times just to be sure! They do whistle a bit at highway speeds, but certainly not unbearable.

Installed on a 2013 Explorer. Went on perfectly with the SXB legs. Bars extend past the legs 3" for a very nice appearance. Silver bars/black feet on a silver Explorer is perfect. Will likely use the bars to mount a cargo carrier on (16-18 CF) but haven't done it yet. Just the most faint/slight whistle at 65 MPH. Can only be heard with no radio on. Absolutely no issue. Solid as a rock. 286955

Cross bars are great! Easy install. Except for the little plastic strips that go under and between mounts.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


The rhino rack is well made but suffers from the flat bottom rubber feet. Since nearly all cars and trucks have roof seams, foot pads should be stepped to engage the seam like other racks such as Thule does. It's unlikely that very many different shapes would be needed to fit most vehicles. Rhino tech didn't agree with my assessment. 420713


Comments

Rack is working out very well. My issue with the flat rubber pads really cant be resolved because the seams on the Ram arent deep enough to allow a stepped pad. Ive also had a problem with the filler rubber strips coming out when sliding boats on. Overall, its a very good rack.

Please see my review about the Rhino Rack Legs for these Aero Crossbars. They work great! Very little noise, if any at all. My only issue was the lack of documentation. I had to figure out how to get the end caps off myself (and if I didn't have the legs, which came with a "key", I wouldn't have been able to get the end caps off because the "key" is stored within the runner of the Crossbars). Anyway, so far, these have worked great. I put a Rola roof carrier on them. So far, it's holding up well. We're taking them on a trip from Charlotte to several places in Michigan the week of 4th of July. They'll all get a good workout then. 265337

So far so good. The Aero 2500 racks went on in a couple of hours as I was not in a rush, wanted to do it properly and understand all I needed to to remove and reinstall these in the future. I did manage to get the Rhinorack logo facing backward on the front and forward on the back. Sorry, didn’t intend to but I’m not going to reverse them at this point. I did not take pics of these on my 2017 Prius. But they look good, less clunky than my old square Thule racks. 512463

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

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.

  • 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.

  • 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....
