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

Order arrived in a timely manner. Went on my A.R.E camper shell perfectly, and they look great. 735993

Had to preform some minor modifications to install new Aero-Bars. A few of the Vortex, rubber strips were missing from the packaging. All issues were resolved with lightning speed, thanks to customer care! Will definitely shop here again in the future. 569455

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


These things are strong and quiet! I have them mounted on my Land Rover Discovery Sport using the SRB legs by Rhino Rack. I've had furniture, lumber, ladders, tools, canoe, and a roof rack piled up there at some point or another and I don't have to worry about them slipping at all!!!! I've done this so much that the rubber strips are showing some wear and have frayed a bit where they've pinched the aluminum, but it's still rock solid. That's my only grip. Hopefully the replacement strips are affordable when I replace them in a year or two. I'd buy another Rhino Rack product in a heartbeat. They look great on my car and are strong and quiet on the road. I feel I made the right choice. 604273


Comments
These bars are hanging in there and holding on strong! My Discovery Sport is in the elements 99.9 of the time and the paint on these crossbars is not faded and there is no rust. The rubber seems to be holding up in the hot Louisiana sun. Ive pinched the very grippy rubber strips with heavy loads, so that is showing some wear, but otherwise its rock solid. The plastic endcaps dont feel brittle and theyre still quiet and strong. Thank yall for a great product for this vehicle!

These Rhino Rack low profile aero cross bars gave us the look that we were going for. Wind noise is minimal if noticeable at all. The Rhino Rack roof rack fit on top of the cross bars perfectly. Great product. 553488

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


This roof rack is very solid and well-made. It was reassuring when I looked up my car online and saw a video of it being installed on that very car. The instruction manual is a little hard to follow and could be simplified, in my opinion. That said, the instructions and recommended measurements seem to be spot on. 705223

Great roof rails. They sit relatively low to the roof; which combined with the Aero profile give a great look. 226575

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


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

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


I bought this roof rack for my kayak. Previously, I was just using ratchet straps through the car. I finally got fed up because when it would rain the water would drain in through the straps into the car. I looked a long time and did a lot of research. The Rhino is definitely the best bang for your buck. Super rigid, easy to install, simplifies travel, and looks great. Etrailer, even with the 4th of July, sent the rack quickly. The direction specific for my Honda Cr-V was also very comprehension. Thank you! 539768

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


I am getting a bit of whistling at around 15-20 mph, but it doesn't happen all the time and can only hear it if sunroof is open. Do not notice any additional noise compared to no roof rack if my sunroof is closed, even if windows are open. Feels very strong once installed and install is pretty straightforward. Still feel it deserves 5 stars as I believe some noise is expected. 703040

Great product! It fits my Ford Edge perfect. I took a 2000 mike trip without any issues. The cross bars look very nice and the price is very competitive. I would recommend these items to anyone looking to save some money with great quality products. 518447

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


The racks fit perfectly! They are a great fit to my car. They don’t interfere with the sunroof’s operation. I assembled it on my own with no difficulty. It was easy to assemble. The directions it provides to you are easy to follow. The only down side was getting the plastic pieces to lock on the ends of the bars. Other than that they are great and they look great on my car! I plan to use them to transport kayaks! They are very sturdy and very trust worthy for transporting a couple of kayaks. I recommend these racks to anyone who has a 2016 or 2017 Nissan Altima! 487588

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


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

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


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

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


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

  • Inexpensive Roof Rack for a Camper Shell with Tracks
    I do have an option for you but the Yakima Q-Towers cannot be mounted to a set of tracks or directly to the roof. These towers are only designed for bare roofs which they attach to with door clips. For a cost effective roof rack that will work with the tracks on your camper shell you can use the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Factory Tracks part # Y02-480B-NT which has 54" long crossbars so your tracks will need to be between at least 42" apart. That said, if you want to remove the tracks...

  • Best Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Flush Rails
    For a roof rack that will look the most like a factory rack on your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with flush rails I recommend taking a look at the Thule AeroBlade Edge # TH7602B-TH7603B for black or # TH7602-TH7603 for silver. For either of these you would also need fit kit # THKIT4029. The bars are integrated into the feet on this system giving it that OEM look.

I wish I had something I could offer that was simple and easy but based on your situation I would go with option 4 and replace everything. The best value on that is the Rhino Rack roof racks for factory tracks like the part # Y02-480B-NT for a 54 inch long bar setup or part # Y02-490-NT for a 59 inch setup.
