Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket Review

Today, we'll be demonstrating part number RMCB. This is the Rhino Rack Roof-Mounted Steel Cargo Basket. Now, this basket measures 47 inches long by 35 inches wide. This heavy duty steel cargo basket is great for transporting gear safely and securely on your roof rack. The basket attaches to most cross bar configurations with its universal mounting hardware. The basket also includes a fairing to reduce drag and wind noise.

Now, we've already assembled our cargo basket according to the instructions within the packaging, so we are ready to fit it to a vehicle. Now, the universal hardware, seen here, will accommodate most crossbar configurations including round, square, arrow or elliptical, and most factory crossbars. The mounting hardware slides back and forth within the channels to accommodate crossbar spread, although Rhino Rack recommends between 21 and 30 inches. The heavy duty steel construction and serious durability, while the black powder coat finish resist corrosion. We'll now simply place the basket on top of our crossbars.

We'll center the basket with the vehicle. We'll then put the clamp underneath the crossbar and tighten it down using the two security Allen bolts. We'll repeat this process for the three remaining mounting brackets. Now, with our basket secured to the vehicle, we're ready to load it up. The basket has a maximum weight capacity of 165 pounds.

That completes the demonstration of the Rhino Rack Roof-Mounted Steel Cargo Basket, part number RMCB.

Amazing and great service. Received an email letting me know personally my package was shipped. Then personally emailed me again saying they received a notification my package was delivered. Great sturdy product. Looks great on my crosstrek too. Thank you 468433

It’s been a year now and still working great. I’ve never taken it off since I’ve had it so it’s gone thru 2 winters no rust or anything. Recently loaded it up and drove 3100 miles round trip and it held well.

I called etrailer for help with a cargo basket for our Forester. Michael was very helpful with guidance to the correct product. We had no trouble putting the basket together and even less trouble mounting it to the car. We are very pleased and would not hesitate to recommend either Michael at etrailer or the Rhino-rack cargo basket we purchased. 458347

Put the Rhino Rack on a 2017 Jeep Renegade. The cargo basket assembly was easy. Also installed RockyMounts Ouray rails to mount the rack on. Looks great. As with most roof accessories, there is some wind noise. Really like the Rhino rack construction and durability. 465742

The picture only assembly instructions leave something to be desired. Just how to best fit the two halves together using the rubber sleeves would be helpful. (A good coating of silicon spray on the rubber helps. Grease the ends of the metal pieces). No instructions on how to use the rubber washers that are in the pack of bolts for the plastic faring. Just how to install the clamps to secure the rack to the roof would be helpful. After trial and error, I got it figured out. (The rubber piece that keeps falling out is installed so that it faces up towards the bottom of the roof cross bar). Another comment mentions the bars rusting where the two pieces join. The grease should help plus I wrapped the rubber sleeves with rubber electrical tape to keep water out. Over all, a solid looking rack. Haven’t installed it on the roof yet because the instructions say to not go through a car wash with the rack installed. I had hoped it would have been a permanent install. Taking it on and off again will be a real PITA. 556978

2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek with Thule Aeroblade. The basket itself came in two pieces out of the box. The images on the manual on how to assemble the basket from two pieces into one could have been clearer, mainly how to install the four rubber pieces. The overall quality of the basket is 5 stars but I am rating this with 4 stars for one main reason. The basket does not include some type of lock to prevent a thief from stealing your roof basket. You would have to cautious where you park and leave your car and roof basket for a long time (ie. overnight parking). However, this shouldn't be a deal-breaker since there are lots of ways you can do to secure the roof basket to stop thieves. I just wish the lock/protection came with the basket. 497489

Great product. Easily puts together and I was able to install on our 2016 Toyota Highlander OEM roof rails with no problems. The mounting brackets slide to make for a easy fit. Have taken it on two long road trips with zero issues last summer one to the montains and one to the beach. Was able to fit our jogging stroller on in the basket. Had some heavy rain on one trip and seen no signs of water getting into the rails as that was a concern of mine when researching the different racks. The high sides allowed for easy tie downs for the weather bag we put the stroller in. Seemed to add a little road noise with nothing in it but that is to be expected when hauling things on the roof but the wind deflector seemed to keep the noise down. Easy to put on and off with a single person able to lift it. Great product, great fit for the car. Plan on using it for some more upcoming trips. 387711

Wow! The "Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Cargo Basket" is a fantastic addition to my 2013 Scion xB. It is a product that was carefully designed and manufactured with quality materials to last for the life of the owner's vehicle. Instructions for the installation, care and maintenance are clear and concise. Mounting the basket to my "Rhino-Rack 2500 RS232B - 2 Bar Aluminum System", that also included 4 locks for securing the bars to my vehicle. I am very impressed with and satisfied with my eTrailer purchases. Customer Service is excellent in support to meet and exceed the needs of their customers. 155067

I ordered a Rhino Rack basket and Vortex Aero cross bars to go on my new 2016 Jeep Renegade. The order came fast and the products look great, although I haven't installed it yet and won't until this weekend. But come on, it's Rhino Rack so it has to be good! I've ordered from eTrailer.com in the past for our GMC Terrain (Curtis rooftop basket, KarPak Car Top Carrier bag, A Draw-Tite Class III 2" ball mount with a 2" ball, Class 3 & 4 Hitch Lock locking pin and a Cargo Bag with straps) and I'm thoroughly satisfied with the delivery time and the quality of the products they sell. I'll continue to do business with them and always recommend them to my friends and family. I'll send pictures to etrailer next week when i'm done and maybe they'll show them on their web site. Keep up the great work etrailer! 411478

Love the functionality and looks but it makes a annoying whistle while driving and I even spent the extra money to get aerodynamic rails! I don’t know if the rails or the rack is causing the whistle.

Some wind noise is expected with any roof mounted rack or accessory. Since you did get the aero bars, and this basket includes an integrated farring those are usually our typical recommendations that we make for our customers. The other thing you might check would be to make sure that if there are any plastic strips on the top and BOTTOM of your aero bars that those are in place as well. Sometimes there is some open space under the roof rack bars and that can be causing some wind noise.

-- Rachael H - 7/27/2018

Thanks for the information. I just looked and sure enough, there are gaps under the bars. I used what was included on the top gaps. Do the same top black covers work on bottom and if so, how do I get some? Thanks again!

The replacement strips that you would need for the underside of your Rhino Rack Aero crossbars is part # RRM641. These are different than the strips that are used on the top of the bar since they have measuring increments on them. Please note this part is sold as a quantity of 1 so you would need to order 4 for a complete set for your roof rack. I hope this information helps you out, and you get rid of the wind noise on your roof rack, and basket.

Thanks! Ordering now and will update my review after I install and test them.

My review... photos are of the Rhino-Rack 47" basket (RMCB) holding the RightLine 15 cu ft cargo bag (100S20). The photos show our 2018 Honda CR-V with dealer-installed side rails and cross bars, after our first 12-hour drive. After dealer installed side rails, I realized they were not functional; that is, no places for ropes (who knew?! I was new to the whole roof storage world). So I had to have them add two cross bars. The cross bars cannot be adjusted, thus the Rhino-Rack 47" with its flexible mounting range made it perfect. After driving in rain, the inside of the Rightline bag was completely dry! Only thing in assembly: there were 4 large rubber washers that I did not know what to do with. 471227

The rack was exactly as described. I am very satisfied with the fit, usage, and look of the rack. I highly recommend this product. Note: The mounting hardware is pretty long. Because my stock 4runner cross bars are thinner, the mounting hardware had the potential to come into contact with my paint on my roof. I solved this problem my using my dremel to shave about 1/4" off the bolts and about the same from the underside bracket. It wasn't ideal, but I made it work. I suspect because of the design of my stock roof rack, I would have had the same trouble with any product I purchased. 145844

The Rhino roof basket has been great. Looks nice on my rig and has came in handy a lot! Only problem I had was where the 2 pieces connect the rain caused some rust to drip on my car but it was easy enough to fix. Just wrapped some tape around they join so water couldnt get in there. I love it, glad I bought it!

The roof rack is very well built & still strong & looks great after 1 full year. It is noisey above 40 mph from the wind noise but I remember that would be the case from reviews before I purchased the product. Our visiting guests like the rack because it makes it easy for them to pick out our car in the traffic when they follow us from one venue to another. 560475

I was looking for a carrier to add to my Rhino crossbars and chose to go with the Rhino brand for because I knew there would be no compatibility issues. Overall, the basket was solid and has a very durable paint job. I dropped the rating one star because the installation instructions were a bit vague. Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase. 559345

I was a little concerned about installing this, but when I was quoted $80 an hour I said, "I might as well try" I was surprised and thrilled at how easy this was to put together. The only problem I had was with the rubber that went over the areas where the two parts fit together, but a blow dryer loosed up the rubber and that problem was solved. I think this looks great and will definitely do what I want. I am happy with the service, ordered on the 18th and received on the 20th! WOW FAST service. I would recommend this company and product to anyone. 594256

Last minute purchase of bars and basket - excellent pick! etrailer came through with expedited delivery and the install was just per the instructions. It can be tricky but the paperwork was complete, the descriptions accurate and no pieces left over; always a plus. The rack and basket are VERY sturdy, it is all very well made; my only concern would be the L-shaped clamps that hook to the door frame. I think the tension down will keep them in place but it would certainly be the one part of the system to check regularly. A winner! 491437

We purchased this roof basket for our many adventures. On long distance road trips, we pair it with the Thule Tahoe bag. For my business, I can leave for a two day trip with an empty car and come back with it completely full of inventory, including the roof. The basket is amazingly versatile. It's quick to install and take off. Locally, we use it for oversized items, and airport pick ups of visiting family. We have two dogs, roof basket gives them so much additional space in our Forester. No more playing square inch Tetris with our stuff. We can hop in and take off. Highly recommended. 479578

I needed an after market basket that would fit the factory bars on my 2015 VW Golf, since VW does not have a factory basket. The Rhino popped up as one that would work, and was the right size. Installation was pretty straightforward, and I was able to position the rack so that I could still use the factory bike carrier alongside it. Like all racks there is some wind noise but it is not particularly bothersome. A year along no issues with finish or fittings so far. Overall functions well and as intended. 288257

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Cargo Carrier For 2014 Santa Fe With Panoramic Roof
  • For your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe with the panoramic sunroof, you will want to consult your owners manual or with the dealership to find what the roof weight capacity is for your vehicle. Please keep in mind the weight of any racks, and cargo carriers as well as the cargo would need to be considered when dealing with the roof weight capacity.

It also comes with a 5 year warranty which beats the Rhino Rack by 2 years as well. Where the Rhino Rack part # RMCB does better is it's ability to mount to a wider variety of crossbar dimensions.

The crossbars will add just about 5 inches of height from the top of the side rails on your Explorer. Generally speaking, operating a moon/sun roof with a roof rack installed is not recommended.

  • Can a Roof Mounted Basket Support a Roof Top Tent
  • As long as the weight of the tent is within the 130 pound capacity of the Rola basket, # 59504, and the weight is evenly distributed I don't see why it couldn't support a roof top tent. The roof rack and vehicle roof will also need to be rated high enough for the roof top tent. Rhino-Rack baskets # RMCB and # RMCB02 are rated for 165 pounds but again you are limited to the lowest rated component whether it be the vehicle roof, the roof rack, or the basket.

  • You will need to measure the width, height and bar spread of the Subaru bars once you have them to determine if the Rhino-Rack cargo basket # RMCB will fit. The mounting hardware for this basket will fit on bars up to 3-1/2 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches tall. The bar spread is measured by measuring from the center of one bar to the center of the other bar. This basket fits a bar spread range from 21 inches to 30 inches. If the crossbars you add fit within these measurements then the basket...

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack, Basket, and Cargo Bag for 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan with Side Rails
  • Roof rack manufacturers universal agree that you should not open the panoramic roof on your 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan with the crossbars installed. The issue is that the open roof could make contact with the bottoms of the bars and damage the roof and the bars. Also, the noise would likely be too much and you'd want it closed anyway. With that said on the Rhino-Rack roof rack bars # RRVA118B-2 and feet # RRSX022 the bottoms of the bars will be approximately 1 inch up from the tops of...

  • Strap Recommendation for Securing Spare Tire to a Rhino Rack Cargo Basket part # RMCB
  • I would go with a ratchet strap like the part # 34414 to secure a spare tire to the Rhino Rack Cargo Basket part # RMCB that you referenced. This strap has S-hooks on either end of the strap which would make them easy to attach to the cargo basket. I would run both straps since that last thing you would want would be a spare tire flying off the basket at highway speeds.

  • Cargo Basket with Crossbars for Carrying Bikes and Skis for 2015 Toyota 4Runner
  • I have a solution for you, but there are no crossbars that are designed to mount to the frame of the Rhino-Rack Xtray Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB02 or # RMCB. Thule offers no feet designed to mount to a roof basket and I cannot recommend you use the Rapid Crossroad feet to secure a roof rack to the top of the Xtray. The best solution I can recommend is a different roof basket that features crossbars, like the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket with Extension Kit #...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Roof Top Cargo Carrier on a 2015 Subaur Forester with Factory Crossbars
  • I can help you figure out if your factory crossbars on your 2015 Subaru Forester will be compatible with the Curt # C18115 cargo carrier. You will need to take a few simple measurements to be for sure. First thing you will want to do is measure the distance between the center of one crossbar to the center of the other crossbar. If this distance is 15, 22, or 29 inches then the Curt cargo carrier will be compatible in this manner. The second thing you will want to measure is the height...

  • Difference Between Rhino Rack # RFMC and # RFMPC Crossbar Legs
  • The only difference between the two Rhino Rack Roof Rack Legs you referenced is that the # RFMPC is 2 inches tall, while the # RFMC legs are 3 inches tall. Both leg sets include the hardware shown in the photo for the # RFMC legs, but the crossbars are sold separately. If you were placing something on the crossbars that would protrude below the crossbars, like ski bindings for instance, having a taller set of legs would be desirable. The mounts for the # RMCB roof basket are not...

  • Cargo Basket Recommendation For 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited With Panoramic Roof
  • There are a couple of measurements you can take on your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. First, you will want to measure the crossbars themselves to make sure any basket you select will fit the style and size you have. The next important measurement is the distance center-to-center. You said your crossbars measured 43 inches, so that will be the measurement I use when making a recommendation. Unfortunately, the Rhino Rack Cargo Carrier, part # RMCB, you referenced, will fit on roofs that...

  • Recommended Roof Basket For 2015 Volkswagen Golf With Roof Rack
  • We do have several roof baskets available that will fit the crossbars on your 2015 Volkswagen Golf. Unfortunately, the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part # C18115 will not work with the crossbar spread you said you have on your Golf. Because of the attachment points, this basket requires crossbar spreads of either 15, 22, or 29 inches. We do have other options for you. I recommend a basket like the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket, part # RMCB. The inside dimensions for this...

  • Will Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB Fit 2015 Jeep Compass w/ Factory Roof Rack
  • Yes, the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket, # RMCB, will fit the factory roof rack on your 2015 Jeep Compass. This basket will mount on crossbars having a 21 to 30 inch spread and measure up to 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches tall. As for a stretchable tie down web, I recommend going with the Stretchable Net and Tie-Down Straps, # RLN1-RTD4. This will not only give you the web/net but also 2 - 13ft tie-down straps to help anchor your gear to your cargo basket. If you already...

  • Recommended Roof Basket and Cargo Bag for 2016 Toyota Highlander
  • For a roof basket to mount onto the factory crossbars of your 2016 Toyota Highlander, I highly recommend the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB. This is a great, heavy-duty steel cargo basket that will provide a weight capacity of 165 pounds. It will fit with the factory crossbars on your Highlander as long as they are no wider than 3-1/2 inches or more than 1-1/2 inches in height. It also needs a crossbar spread (distance between the two crossbars) of 21 to 30 inches. This...

  • Roof Rack and Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 2010 Volvo XC90
  • The best bang for your buck would be the Rhino-Rack roof rack with the Vortex Aero Crossbars, # RRVA118B-2 for black or # RRVA118S-2 for silver and the SX series leg kit, # RRSX100. This roof rack will attach to the side rails on your roof and the elliptical crossbars cut down on wind noise and drag. This roof rack is very easy to install. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. The weight capacity for these roof racks is 165 lbs, however, you should verify the weight...

  • Surfboard Carrier Options for 2016 Ford Fusion
  • To transport your two surf boards on an Aero style roof rack like the Rhino-Rack 2500-Series racks, shown on the linked page along with all options for your Fusion, I suggest using one of the pad or block style surf board carriers shown on the other linked page. As an example, Rhino-Rack offers their pad and tie-down kit # RRRWP05 which includes a set of two 33-1/2-inch long crossbar pads along with tie downs. Other sizes are offered too and similar products are available from Thule,...
