pioneer in use on trail

Built for off-road use and tested in harsh Australian conditions, the Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform is a comprehensive solution for your cargo carrying needs. This platform's large, flat surface lets you carry more gear than a typical roof rack, freeing up space inside your vehicle. The Pioneer uses integrated channels in the planks and side rails to accommodate a wide variety of Rhino-Rack accessories, including rail systems, awnings, light brackets, and more. The platform mounts directly to your crossbars.

The Perfect Roof Rack for Any Outdoor Lifestyle

pioneer with accessories

Whether you are overlanding, camping, or tailgating, the Pioneer platform's ample surface space lets you carry a large amount of cargo and gear. This helps free up space inside of your vehicle so you and your passengers can travel comfortably. The integrated channels located in the planks and side rails let you install channel-mount accessories, like an awning or kayak carrier, similar to a traditional roof rack. But, there are also several accessories that install exclusively to the Pioneer platform, such as the aluminum folding ladder and gas can holders. And because of the platform's design you can utilize many of these accessories at the same time.

front and side railsfull rails

Additionally, a rail system can be installed to enhance your application. The rails bolster the safety of your load and create additional tie-down points for your gear. They are easy to install and simply bolt into the channels on the platform's side rails. This platform is compatible with front and side rails (RR43165B - sold separately) and full rails (RR43189B - sold separately).

Utilitarian Design with Rugged, Off-Road Look

pioneer aerodynamic design

The Pioneer platform was designed with utility in mind and features a rugged, off-road look. The low-profile tray was also designed to be aerodynamic to help reduce wind noise and drag.

Strong, Durable Construction

pioneer close up

Strong, yet lightweight, the platform's frame is constructed of aluminum and includes reinforced nylon connectors. Since these materials are powder coated and non-corrosive, the platform won't rust or fade when exposed to the weather. Rhino-Rack has rigorously tested the Pioneer in the harsh Australian outback, ensuring it's built to withstand anything your adventures throw at it.

Universal Fit on Most Crossbars

This Pioneer platform rack fits most crossbars and includes all the parts necessary to install it. However, it is not compatible with Rhino Rack Heavy Duty crossbars. The platform comes unassembled, so you will have to put it together before proceeding to the installation. After this is complete, simply use the clamps to connect the bars on the bottom of the platform and crossbars together. Alternatively, you can bolt the platform to the integrated channels on the crossbars using the upper clamp and included hardware.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

I bought this roof rack to mount on my 2018 Toyota TRD Off Road 4Runner. The reason I purchased it was because of the versatility that this product offers. There are many roof racks out there for my vehicle. Some are cheap and some are expensive. Some racks are smaller and some are full size. I was looking for a rack that wouldn't break the bank as well as cover a majority of the roof (without drilling). I have two young kids and I'd like to get them out more. Hence, buying the 4Runner as well as the rack. This rack will enable me to load a ton of stuff on it in the future such a roof top tent, awning, etc. Even though I'm somewhat handy, the installation did take around 3-4 hours. I did have one other person helping me. I highly recommend having an additional set of hands helping during the installation. The sides rail installation was easier than I thought it would be. The platform itself took longer to install. Overall: very happy with this product. I highly recommend it. 719282

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

Fantastic experience! I spent weeks researching rack options for my GX460. At the end of my rope with literally NO good options, the good folks at etrailer talked me thru some great ideas and I went with the RhinoRack Universal Platform, attached to Yakima RailGrab Towers. My etrailer order was delivered within 48hrs and installed within another 12hrs. Great fit, great look. No rattles and surprisingly, no wind noise. I’ll be back for accessories! GREAT experience. 706244

This rack is super solid. Took about an hour to put it together and another hour to mount it on my truck. Clear instructions and very easy to install yourself with even a basic skill set. Etrailer got it to me in 3 days for free! Can’t say enough about the service and the prices from etrailer. 599244

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

The RINO RACK AND PIONEER PLATFORM are a great addition to my little Wrangler. etrailer folks were very helpful in determining exactly what I wanted and needed. The assembly instructions are very good - even though there are a lot of parts to assemble. I was able to complete the assembly by myself (with help getting the top off the jeep.) If I can offer a recommendation from my experience, I would pre-assemble the entire unit with the mounting brackets finger-tightened to the platform AND THEN set it on the roof - to insure that the holes needed to be drilled are in exactly the right spot. I had to re-drill two holes and maybe that was my own fault, but until I did, i could not get the platform to rest in the mounting brackets. All that said, I am VERY PLEASED with the RINO RACK product. It is very secure, easily accessible, very low profile (3" from roof to top of rack), large platform that still allows removal of the Freedom Top on my rig. It will give me the extra carrying capacity as we tow the jeep behind the motor home from Arizona to Alaska and hit lots of back country for tent camping in the process!! 614433

Awesome rack! Solid functionality and sharp looking on my 4Runner. Only downside is lots of parts and pieces/screws/bolts/washers to manage to put together...worth it in the end, however. Price and service from etrailer also could not be beat, and I did my research! Thank you all around. 593032

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

First of all congratulations to E-Trailer on the shipping. I ordered my pioneer platform and the full rail kit at the same time. The rail kit was not in stock and had to be shipped from the manufacturer. Worried that the shipment might not make it time for my upcoming desert trip, I called etrailer and voiced my concerns. Long story short, I was given a ship date that wouldn’t have given me much time for the install and I ended up getting it four days earlier. Super easy to install and very strong. I’ll have to give a follow up review after I put it work in the coming weeks. 616480

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

I installed this on a '99 Lexus LX470 (Toyota Land Cruiser 100 series). I have had 0 issues with this rack and the options are seemingly endless. Here is what I've had mounted to this rack: 1- Black Oak LED 40" light bar using Rhino Rack brackets 2- Max Trax recovery treads 3- Jerry Can 4- Mountain bike - had to spend 100 on correct rail/fork mount, but it works flawlessly 5- Oz Tent Foxwing awning - used Rhino Rack Foxwing brackets 6- Shovel / Hi-lift jack dual brackets - only had shovel mounted 7- Tepui Roof Top Tent - Kukenam Ruggedized - used Eezi Awn K9 brackets and made it super easy to mount. My ONLY complaint is that for a rack this expensive (all racks are expensive) I wish they would rivet a metal "RHINO RACK" logo to the product. The decals start peeling after a short time and makes a really great quality rack look cheap. I will also add this note: Add-ons and all the extras get really expensive. It's like stepping into vacuum for your money. Once you get over the initial investment, you've only just begun. Now, you've got to mount things to it and that's where you really have to PLAN IT OUT AHEAD OF TIME. You need to have a game plan of what you want to do with it, otherwise you will have a boat load of bolts/brackets/clamps etc. that you end up not using. There are usually more than one way of getting something attached. So, ask yourself if you really need that 100.00 bracket or if a ratchet strap will do the same thing. Also, don't get overcome by the "coolness" factor. Do you REALLY need that Hi-lift jack, or do you just want to keep up with all the Jeepsters out there. If you take that approach, you'll be ahead of the game. I deducted one star for the decals and for all the accessories being so overly expensive....but they DO WORK REALLY WELL. This is not a mark on Etrailer. Etrailer is AAA+ Their customer service is top notch and have always provided me with great communication and service. 519915

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

Rhino rack pioneer platform JA8200 for Land Cruiser 80 Series. Awesome product, aluminum high build quality, low profile and round edge design that matches well with 80 Series's curvy line. I decided on this rack for #1 functional reason, "fitting into my garage" after my rig's been lift and upsized tires. #2 reason is aesthetics fitting the LC80. ARB was too high on profile, other one piece design was too bulky for shipping. Great product. The only minor issue I had was the 80 Series has a bit curvature (~1/4") on rain gutter, with highest point at the middle area. This requires a bit adjusting/playing with foot positioning and use of shimming. eTrailer customer service was great, with Bryan sent me the missing part once notified. Great place to buy with free shipping. 555298

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

I almost never write reviews. However, I will make an exception this time. This is my third order with etrailer.com. The previous two were straight forward. This one was not. I was ordering a roof rack for my 200 series Land Cruiser. There were several concerns I had with it. Emily went to the manufacturer to sort out areas I was concerned about. She called me back within 30 minutes with accurate information. I would not have spent the $1,400 on the rack with out the specifics. It was nice not having to do all the research on my own, and getting significant help was a gift. Much appreciated! Hence the review. 733153

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

Bought the Rhino Rack 60 x 54 platform to mount over the bed of my '20 Jeep Gladiator. Then I will mount a Thule Cargo Box onto platform for additional storage of camping gear. I decided to go Rhino Rack because it really gives you options. I like the antenna mount options for my CB and Ham radio. Top quality materials and finish. Much nicer than I had anticipated. Package came well packed and in good order. But be advised it's pretty heavy. Assembly will look quite daunting at first. I would advise finding an elevated surface that is larger than the platform you purchase. One easy way is to empty your garage and get two 3 x 6 folding tables or 2 sawhorses and a piece of plywood. Put down a light colored cloth or blanket on work surface as not to scratch your platform. Make sure you received the size you ordered prior to opening box. Unpack box and find hardware box. I had a small clear plastic fishing lure organizer in which I put all hardware in. Trust me, there's a lot of hardware. You may then count all hardware against packing list if you wish. Set that hardware aside. Preview instructions as they are fairly clear. Then just lay out all the pieces upside down in the order they go together making sure all parts are accounted for. Then follow the instructions and you should be good to go. Have no hesitations in buying from etrailer. There customer service is fantastic and returns are super easy. 732386

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

Quality product, and the price on etrailer was good. But it was a bear to put together. This product comes with different kits for various installs and 3 sets of directions. Try juggling that. On top of that, after hours of trying to figure out where to install the risers/supports to fit my vehicle, and making a few calls to Rhino, we figured out that I had to drill holes in the unit to fit my vehicle... although it was supposed to fit according to the website. I'm happy with it now that it is installed, but won't be able to get that day back. 726442

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

I ordered the Rhino Rack Platform Rack with Backbone System for my 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to enable it to mount a rooftop tent. The rack is expensive at about $1600 all in, but I have no question about this rack’s capabilities and it looks awesome. I prepped myself by watching several different videos, including etrailer’s installation video. Everything went fairly well, but I encountered a couple of minor issues. First, when I bolted the platform extrusions to the end rails from the bottom of the rack, I didn’t pay attention to the topside of the extrusions. After completing this and turning the rack right side up, I found that each screw had forced the ends of each extrusion up slightly so that they were not flush to the end rails. I am debating whether to leave this as is or to remove each screw and add another washer to relieve the pressure it is causing. Second, although I carefully placed the rear and middle brackets in position and was careful with the drilling template for the front bracket, there was still some misalignment that couldn’t be overcome by the small ovals where the legs connect to the platform. I had to expand these ovals by drilling them wider. Eventually I got a good fit. Finally, the quick mount legs required two different keys to remove the platform. This was caused by the quick mount legs coming in the form of two separate kits. One kit contained two legs and one key (no spare) and the other kit had four legs and two keys. The key numbers from these two sets were different. I contacted etrailer, but they had no control over the key set packaging and referred me to Rhino Rack. Rhino Rack was very responsive and sent me new cylinders and keys so that I had locks that were all keyed the same, as well as having a total of four matching keys. We haven’t used the rack yet, but I love the styling and enhancement it gives my Jeep. Just check out my picture... 706070

Excellent product, feels solid and sturdy. Installed on top of Yakima Core bars on a Snugtop camper shell. Plan to use it to store things when I need to sleep in the shell and carry lighter things during travel. Even better customer service. I took my time putting the item together, which was missing some hardware; was super easy to just reply to e-mails sent by etrailer staff and got it resolved to satisfaction without any difficulties.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Basket

Let me start off by saying I am new to roof racks. I originally had crossbars and Yakima basket. Nothing wrong with tha set up, I just wanted something more low profile. I searched around and came across my current Rhino Pioneer platform. So far I like the way it looks and I like that it is very versitile. There are many add ons you can purchase, which is pretty awesome. I wanted this style rack for not only a low profile look but for the wide space functuality of having the entire roof of my jeep at my disposal. So far, I have strapped my snowboard bag ontop and hauled a few items from the hardware store. I recently purchased the side rails for added security to my luggage. I hope that down the line I will get an opportunity to purchase some add ons and use it's versitility a bit more. While I believe it is a good platform, there are things I personally did not like. 1. Cost, with the towers that mount to the rails on my jeep, this platform was close to $800 on sale. 2. All accessories and or add on are pretty pricey themselves. You can easily spend an additional 1k on buying accessories for this rack. 3. Instructions were very poorly written. The pictures were badly illustrated in my opinion and they did not specify certain parts; which set of towers went in the front and which ones went in the back. 4. I did not like that while my rack was for my vehicle, I still had to drill extra holes so that the spaci g for the mounting towers were correct. Being the rack is universal, I do get it, but still. 5. Wind noise SUCKS! And the faring for this is pretty ugly. Nonetheless the product is well built, versitile and looks great. You do get what you pay for... I hope. etrailer customer service was fantastic as I did call them a few times, Thank you! As of now, for the most part I am happy with this rack. Time will tell if the cost is worth the item. 591802

This rack is great very sturdy and not difficult to assemble at all. The box it arrived in was absolutely destroyed with parts of the rack hanging out. Yet somehow nothing was missing or damaged. Which goes to show how tough the parts are that this rack is made out of. 500394

  • Can the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Be Installed on Aero Crossbars
    In order to attach the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform to a set of crossbars you would need the kit that comes with universal mounts which is part # RR42114BF for 48" long x 37" wide or part # RR42115BF for 58" long x 47" wide.

  • How to Mount a Thule Ski Rack on the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform # RR42114BF
    Yes, you can mount a Thule ski rack, like the SnowPack # TH7326, to the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform # RR42114BF by using accessory bars. These come in a 24" length # RR43232B or a 48" length # RR43137B. The 48" bars will be about 10" wider than the platform itself so if the mounting locations on your Thule ski rack are adjustable or mount within 24" I recommend going with the shorter option.

  • Is There a Side Rail Kit for the Rhino-Rack 48x38 Universal Pioneer Platform Rack

The Pioneer Platform weighs 12.5 kg or 27-1/2 lbs so you'd need to subtract that from your roof capacity to know what the overall capacity is.

These platform racks fit standard bars that are up to 3-1/8" wide and up to 1-1/4" tall.

If you don't already have a Pioneer Platform tray then you can use either the 48" x 38" part # RR42114BF or...

  • Will Rhino Rack Platform Pioneer Work With Thule Cross Bars on Nissan Frontier?
    There are a pair of Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform cargo trays which will work with the square Thule crossbars on your Nissan Frontier. The # RR42115BF is 58" long x 47" wide while the # RR42114BF is 48" long x 38" wide. The Rhino Rack Steel Mesh Cargo Tray RRRPBL will also work, as you mentioned, and attaches to square crossbars with Fit Kit # MUBK. Unfortunately these cargo trays are not compatible with bike racks such as the Thule UpRide # TH599000T. I've left video reviews of these...

  • Adding Thule Roof Rack to Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform
    You can indeed install a Thule Square Bar Roof Rack over the Pace Edwards UltraGroove Hard Tonneau Cover # 311-KMTA10A38 that you referenced but it will still require the Universal version of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform. For the roof rack you will need the Rapid Podium Foot Pack # TH460R, the Fit Kit # THKIT3101 and 60 Inch Square Bars # TH712500. Then to mount to a standard roof rack like this you will need either the 58" x 47" Pioneer Platform # RR42115BF or the smaller 48" x...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Track System for a Fiberglass Truck Topper on a 2019 Toyota Tundra
    The adjustable roof rack systems are a very popular option for fiberglass truck toppers. They will allow for you to carry a variety of different items such as a cargo box, kayak carrier, or in your case a cargo tray. The best system we have for this is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Track System part # Y02-480B. This kit includes a set of tracks, two crossbars, two mounting feet, and everything else you will need to install the system on your truck topper. The reason I recommend this system...

  • Roof Rack to Carry Ladder on 2015 Subaru Forester
    There is a way to carry a ladder but opening the hatch on your 2015 Subaru Forester will be dicey; the only real option to safely carry a ladder and possibly open your hatch is going to be with a cargo tray. Even then it depends on how high the hatch opens; if it is more than a couple inches above your roof there really isn't going to be a way to do so. If your '15 Forester has raised side rails there is a roof rack from Rhino Rack that I recommend checking out which consists of Rhino-Rack...

  • Is There a Roller Accessory for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Racks That Fits A 38 Inch Wide Platform
    I do have an option for you but the smallest Roller Accessory for the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Racks like part # RR42114BF is the Roller Accessory for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Racks part # RR43129 which measures 42". However, I see no reason as to why you could not cut this down to fix your exact width.

  • Comparing the Rhino-Rack Mounting Brackets RR43173 and RR43174 for a 2016 Toyota Prius
    The difference between the Rhino-Rack Mounting Brackets # RR43173 and # RR43174 is that the former is meant to be mounted on a Pioneer Platform Rack like part # RR42114BF while the latter is meant to me mounted on Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero bars like part # RRVA126B-2 for your 2016 Toyota Prius. If the OEM crossbars that you have on your Prius have the T-Slots then the second option may work for you. I went to the warehouse and found that the pieces that fit into the T-Slot measure 1/4"...

  • How Much Weight Can Be Stored On Top Of An ARE Camper Shell with Thule Roof Rack
    The Thule Track Mount Roof Racks are all going to be limited to 165 lbs therefore this will give you a good idea of how much weight can be carried. However, the camper top manufacturer may have a lower weight capacity figure so if that is the case then this will be your new weight capacity. If you are looking to use a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack, you need to be careful of which option you choose as there are only two available that attach to standard crossbars. The Rhino-Rack Universal...

  • How To Use a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Rack On a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe with Factory Crossbars
    The correct Rhino-Rack Pioneer SX Platform Rack for a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe is part # JA9136. In order to install this tray you will need to remove the factory crossbars and then install the mounting feet that come with the above kit in its place. I am sure you have noticed there are several different Rhino-Rack Pioneer SX Platform Racks but each of these comes with vehicle specific mounts and the needed tray size for said vehicle. If you are looking for something more cost effective,...

  • Is Rhino-Rack Folding Ladder Compatible with Thule Rack System on a 2016 Ford F-150
    Even though the Rhino-Rack Folding Ladder # RRRAFL includes T-Bolts that would be compatible with the T-Slots on a Thule roof rack or ladder rack system, since the ladder mounts to the side of the vehicle and it has brackets designed for the Pioneer Platform Rack, like part # RR42114BF, the ladder won't be compatible with the setup you currently have on your 2016 Ford F-150. If you don't want to use the Pioneer Platform Rack but you are open to using a cargo basket then we have the Folding...
