Video Transcript for Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2017 Ram 1500

Today on our 2017 Ram 1500, we're going to be test-fitting the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System. Now, this consists of part numbers RRVA150B-2. Those are the crossbars, and part number RRLKVA. Those are the Rhino-Rack 2500 series legs for the vortex aero crossbars, and then part number DK043, and this is the custom-fit kit for this vehicle. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories ranging from cargo baskets to enclosed cargo boxes to bike racks and to ski carriers, pretty much anything that you can't put in the bed of your truck once it's filled up. Now, both bars have a nice, aerodynamic shape to them, and that coupled with the vortex strips at the top are going to cut down the wind, noise and drag while you're driving.

Also you can remove these strips at the top and insert channel-based accessories such as cargo baskets or bike racks. The bars themselves are very lightweight and the system is very easy to install. Also on the ends here, we have these lock cores, so once you install the roof rack to your roof, it is secured to your roof once it's locked down. It includes all the tools necessary to install it onto your roof and the two bars combined have a carrying capacity of 165 pounds, although always double check with your vehicle's manual to make sure your roof can withstand that weight. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the roof rack let's go ahead and show you how it gets put together. We have our rear assembly partially hooked up already.

Now, before I put everything together, I'm going to go ahead and go over some of the things that are going to come with the kits. Now, the 2500 series legs is going to be this plastic piece here as well as the lockable covers. This is just the end cap for our crossbar, and then with our actual fit kit, we're going to have the pad and clamps that come with that. Let's go ahead and assemble it. Now, as I showed earlier that we did remove the end cap from our crossbar, and this is so we can slide our actual leg into place. This metal piece here will slide into the T-slot at the end of our crossbar.

You just line up the holes and slide it into place like so. Now, next we're going to go ahead and take a measurement from the end of this edge here to our actual leg. Now, normally you would have a strip that this comes with. You would take the proper measurement, cut it to length, and leave it be. Now, for demonstration purposes, we're just going to go ahead and take our measuring tape here, and do it that way.

Just refer to your instructions for the proper measurement. Once you have it where you need it, we'll take the included tightening tool with the blue handle, tighten down the screw at the top here so our leg will stay into place. The screw is going to be right here. Next we can go ahead and reinstall our end cap and take our included tool and lock it into place as well. Our next step is we're going to go ahead and take our rubber pad and place it onto our leg. Now you want to make sure that this is facing in the right direction. There's going to be an arrow. You want it facing forward. Finally, we're going to go ahead and attach our clamp. Unscrew this on the leg all the way, line it up, just reinsert the bolt and only tighten it down loosely. You're going to need this loose once we put this on the vehicle. Okay, next we'll go ahead and open up the rear doors and install our second bar. Now, you may need an extra set of hands just to catch the bar on the other side just to make sure you don't scratch up your vehicle. Set it down loosely because you're going to need to do a couple of measurements here for crossbar spread. Now we'll go ahead and do our crossbar spread and that's going to be measured from center of the bar to center of the bar. Now, to get this measurement, just refer to your instructions, and you'll want this measurement to be the same on both sides. This is going to keep the bars parallel. Go ahead and take our included tool and just snug it down to our vehicle. Do this on both sides and then we'll start really tightening it down on both sides as well. Now a neat thing about this tightening tool is you see that it's curved here. Once it's completely tightened down and torqued to where it needs to be, this portion will straighten out as you tighten it up. Therefore you don't over-tighten or under-tighten. Once that's straightened out, it's good on this side, our final step is we're going to go ahead and install our locking caps here. All right and we're good to go, and there you have it for the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System on our 2017 Ram 1500.

Everything came super quick! Ordered Thursday before a weekend vacation, had it when I got home Tuesday! Outstanding customer service. Only gripe is the packaging was a little squished and there were a few scratches on the bars. No worries though, it's gonna have way more from the kayak on top. Kit installed in about an hour. Barely any wind noise I can notice in the cab. Additionally the rod holders are MINT! Great service and product. 500543

Great product and excellent service. I had originally ordered the Thule rack for my truck. I had it down between the Thule and the Rhino. Long story short could not get the Thule. etrailer worked with me no problems and I said I would take the Rhino. Delivery was quicker then they had said and package came perfectly packaged. Installed the racks on my Ram crew cab and carried 3 kayaks 300 miles. The rack did great and fits well. Don't spend more than you have to. 292682

The Rhino-Rack was shipped the next day and was received in under 4 days to my door. The E-trailer packaging was sufficient but the OEM packaging on the rails were all beat up and actually one of them appears to have been opened and possibly returned. It was missing the key for the end caps and 2 of the upper rail strips as well as had some nicks and gouges in the rail itself (appeared used).....I would have tried to return for a new one but I needed it the next day so I had to go ahead and use it against my better judgment. The install was pretty straight forward. The first assembly took me about 30-45 minutes to assemble and mount to the vehicle. The second went much quicker after learning on the first and only took about 15 minutes. The parts quality is very good. I would say it is on par with Thule and Yakima without question. The rack is very secure when mounted. I have this mounted on a 2015 Ram 2500 (8,300lbs) and was able to rock the entire truck side to side by the rails wit zero movement in the rails or legs. I have not been able to use the rack yet but purchased it primarily for hauling 2 kayaks when we go RVing. I will give a follow up review after I have used them. 237048

Installation was not that bad, had to read the directions a few times and convert mm to inches as the rack is made in New Zeland. The installation video was very helpful. Installed on 2014 Ram 2500 crew cab. Have not noticed wind noise and it looks good on the truck. 210150

Review from a similar Rhino Rack DK in Roof Rack


As always from etrailer.com, a great product at a reasonable price. Customer service help was not necessary in this case to choose the best product for my vehicle and needs, but has been a painless process for other needs in the past. Etrailer.com is my go-to for aftermarket cargo hardware needs. As always, however, the manufacturer (not etrailer.com) provides marginal instructions. In spite of that, initial assembly and installation on my wife's 2016 Escape took about an hour, and it looks like the rack will do a great job for us on family trips. I anticipate removal or reinstall Atkin in the future to take less than 15 minutes for one person. 334673

Review from a similar Rhino Rack DK in Roof Rack


Delivery was fast - racks seem solid. Happy with product. Like the one tool (plus a knife and tape measure) installation. Could use a little more emphasis on the interplay of the two instruction sheets - the general one and the specific measurements for the car model. Maybe big bold capital letters would help in the instructions (when you need to go to the other sheet). The arrows on the black pads are kind of hard to see, so it took a few times to get the configuration correct (pad type, pad direction, foot direction). But that was the only snag, all else is good. The online installation video was helpful. The total cost was almost half what the local outdoor store wanted to charge for Yakima racks (that were only rated 100 lbs.) Since I am carrying a canoe a lot, I went for the 165 lbs rated Rhino rack. I also widened the separation of the racks on the roof about two inches as well. This was for the canoe - and also to get it level, it was a bit down in the nose with the measurements in the instructions.. By moving the rear rack more astern, the spread was wider and level. 234297

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. 557942

I ordered these racks for my 2011 Mazda Tribute w/ a naked roof. The quality and ease of assembly was remarkable. I use the racks for loading surfboards (longboards 9 ft to 10 ft.) and they are exactly what I needed!!! I would highly recommend this product. The helpful folks at etrailer.com were great. The product arrived on time with no hassles and the price was less than the factory system which was far less robust. Cheers. 136891

Product came quickly and as described. I would rate it higher but there wasn't the measurement needed to set the brackets horizontally, I had to figure it out through trial and error. Also, a high pitched whistling sound is heard at high speeds when the air moves across the grooves in the bars. Functionally there is nothing wrong with the product and it works well as intended for my 2015 Ford Escape. 279659

This is a great roof rack, VERY sturdy once attached! I used it to carry two kayaks on the freeway multiple times and it was flawless. It is quite loud, but that is to be expected with this type of roof rack. Having the sunroof open doesn't help either... :-) 356032

Bought this Rhino-Rack to install on my 2013 Hyundai Elantra. This product was a great value. Installation was very easy. Processing and shipping was incredibly fast. I had one little minor issue with a screw head that was stripped, and although it did not delay installation, customer service was all over it, and had a new one out to me in no time. I have purchased from etrailer.com before, and always had great product and customer service. 219211

I am still digging my Rhino Rack! In fact, this Spring I bought two sets of kayak carriers, from etrailer, of course, that attach to the Rhino-Rack. The kayak carriers are super easy to attach and use. Ive use Rhino-Rack to carry my canoe, my kayaks, building materials and even small furniture pieces.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack DK in Roof Rack


I have on this product for over a year now and after installing it on the roof of my car, I haven’t had to touch it. I’ve put this rack through the ringer in what I’ve at the times idiotically strapped to it, from full sheets of drywall, 200 pounds of siding and numerous other construction projects, this rack has come in clutch. I have also used this for more of what it’s designed for in carrying my surfboard, Wakeboard, and other sporting equipment never having to worry about it once. The only downside is that it does create more wind noise. But it’s not that noticeable. If this is a concern just upgrade to the aero bars! 563901

Review from a similar Rhino Rack DK in Roof Rack


Where do I start? I've been whitewater kayaking for 22 or so years now. I've always used used either Yakima or Thule products... Until I bought a 2015 Nissan Rogue with a naked roof. The curvature of the roof and large door jams mean that Yakima and Thule can't make racks for them. I went to a place that does custom installs and again because of the curvature of the roof, they couldn't give me a rack. This meant no kayaking which is really bad news. Enter the Rhino rack system. I purchased the feet, the fit kit, the cross bars and a Yakima "big stack" stacker. The first issue I had is the reccomended size for the Nissan Rogue is only 48 inches. Way too small too haul 4-5 (very light) whitewater kayaks. I called etrailer and they were SUPER helpful, told me I can buy the 65 in cross bars and they'll work fine. I held my breath and placed my order. I was nervous leaving my trusted name brands. The order arrived super fast (they told me it would arrive by Friday but it actually arrived on Thursday) and everything was packaged rock solid. I was impressed. I read the instructions and put the rack system on my car. It took about a hour (it was hot and I worked slowly) but the rack system is SUPER SOLID. I love it. Rhino might have a "forever" customer out of me. -The rack system is very stable. I can't move it with my hands by pushing or pulling. -The rubber stripping you put on the top and bottom of the bar is an awesome added feature AND it reduces wind noise. -Adding the fairing reduced wind noise even further. With four boats on the roof you couldn't hear any extra noise. The ONE thing I dislike is that you need to use the supplied Allen wrench to take the rack on and off the car. It's a small complaint, but other systems I've used in the past don't have them. I paid much less for this system than I would have if I purchased one of the aforementioned systems, but I'm really really satisfied with the product. We will see how well it holds up over long-term use, but it looks awesome! 411250

ORDERED THE RHINO 2500 FOR MY 2011 MAZDA 3. ORDER WAS PLACED ON MONDAY AND ARRIVED THURSDAY. TOOK AN HOUR AND A CIGAR TO GET MY BEARINGS. THE DIRECTIONS COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER BECAUSE I ORDERED THE KIT FOR FIXED ROOF POINTS. MINOR ADJUSTMENTS WERE MADE AND ALL CAME TOGETHER. IWOULD ONLY CHANGE ONE PART, THE MOUNTING BOLT THAT ATTACHES THROUGH THE BASE TO THE ROOF SCREW WOULD BE BETTER IF THE SLEEVE USED FOR THE WRENCH WAS CAST METAL. OVERALL I AM PLEASED AND AM LOOKING FOWARD TO PUTTING MY KAYAK ON THE ROOF WHILE SAVING WHATS LEFT OF MY PAINT JOB. IWOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE. 216236

These Aero Racks are perfect on my Scion XB, stylish cool look & importantly Quiet with absolutely no wind noise! Also bought the Rocky Mount Cargo Basket & it comes WITH a full bunji net cover. It is also quiet with no wind noise & you can tie surf gear on top like racks (use padded rack pads) & or put things inside for more carrying space. Also a cool stylish look on the Scion XB or any other compact car like my wifes Toyota Yaris... We move it back & forth to who ever needs the Cargo Basket for the days Adventure. 344171

Review from a similar Rhino Rack DK in Roof Rack


My three star review has to do with the product, not the service. I am quite mechanically inclined and have installed and assembled many things over my 45 years. I followed the instructions very carefully but the measurements for the strips were just off. It was difficult to tell because of the location but probably at least 6 or 8 mm on each end. I basically had to just loosen them and figure out where they needed to be and then try to tighten them without moving them. Then, I measured very carefully according to the instructions where they should sit on the roof. This went fairly well but having to readjust as discussed in the previous paragraph made it more difficult than it should have been. Once I got them parallel and where I thought they should be, it was difficult snug them down very tightly. If you tightened one end too much the other foot started to pick up. So I would go tighten that one down and go back and forth until it just wouldn't work anymore. And yes I did loosen the Fasteners on the bars themselves so that they could settle into the right configuration. Overall, I think they are a pretty decent set but it was difficult to install because the instructions were way off. Also when I fasten my kayak to the bars, the feet tend to raise up a little. I tightened everything even a little more than the fancy torque wrench indicated. Having said all that, this is probably a pretty decent set for the price. Also when I get the Swagman piece assembled and on the roof bars, I think the kayak will sit better in the saddle mount and I won't have to tighten so much to the bars. I think the multi shaped Keel of my kayak made it difficult to get comfortably tight for me, as I do a lot of Interstate driving and I wanted it very secure. Would I buy this again? I'm really not sure. It's my first rack. If I could absolutely not spend any more money then yes I probably would. I also think the Swagman Saddle Rack will make it an even better setup. 489774

One year update. The rack is still great in my opinion. It does make a little noise but not as much as I thought it would and I havent taken it off yet. The only problem I had with it was that one of the plastic end caps fell off. Over all I give it a 9 out of ten.

Excellent product! Fits like a glove on my 2016 Hyundai Elantra. Install was fairly quick and painless. My dad and I installed it in about 20 minutes with no problems. I would definitely recommend installing this with two people to make sure the bars are evenly spaced on the vehicle. I love the way it looks and you can tell it is great quality. I plan to leave the rack on permanently and just change out the various gear attachments. I also bought the Rhino Rack Bike Mount and they fit perfectly together. There is very little wind noise and you can't even hear it when the sunroof is closed. I got up to 60ish mph and only noticed some noise when the radio was off and I was actively listening for any extra noises. I am very impressed with this roof rack already. Great price and great quality product. Can't wait to get more use out of it! 291409

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2016 Ram 1500
  • A roof rack for your 2016 Ram 1500 Crew Cab would be your best option for carrying a kayak. The Rhino Rack Aero Kit part # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 would be a fantastic option that's confirmed as a fit for your truck for carrying a kayak carrier like our very popular Thule # TH834. I attached a picture of this carrier installed on a similar Ram 1500 as yours as well.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Ram 1500 Crew Cab for Carrying Paddleboard
  • Most popular roof rack option we have for your 2016 Ram 1500 is the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA150S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 which is a confirmed fit that will give you a set of aero shaped bars. Then for a paddleboard carrier we have the Rhino Rack SUP part # RRRWP04 which will fit these bars and work well for your 12 foot paddleboard.

  • Roof Rack & Kayak Carrier Recommendations for 2016 Ram 1500 Crew Cab
  • Your thought process about kayak stability on your Ram's cab roof is correct; a roof rack with a wider bar stance will provide a better foundation for installing rack-mount kayak carriers. That said, since all kayak carriers include bow and stern tie-downs you don't have to worry about stability so much. I suggest that you first confirm the cab's roof weight rating. Your two boats alone weigh 127-lbs, so adding a roof rack (say 10-lbs) and a kayak carrier (anywhere from 2-lbs up to about...

  • Fixed and Adjustable Roof Racks and Kayak Carrier for 2015 Ram 2500 Crew Cab
  • Most aftermarket roof racks are meant to remain in place once installed. There are track-based rack systems that do allow for flexible placement of the rack's foot assemblies but these tracks require you to drill into your roof to install them permanently. The feet and crossbars can be removed once installed but not the tracks. On the linked page you can see all standard aftermarket roof racks (that do not require drilling) that will fit your 2015 Ram 2500 crew cab. These include racks...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier Options for 2010 Ram 2500 4 Door With 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For your 2010 Ram 2500 4 door Crew Cab, I recommend starting with the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack consisting of the following: Vortex Aero Crossbars- 59" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA150B-2 2500 Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRRLKVA Custom DK Fit Kit # DK043 Then you can use the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style # RRS520 to secure the kayaks. This system is intended to have the kayaks centered between the crossbars, so if the kayak length isn't an issue...

  • Does Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Work with Sunroof on 2018 Ram 2500 Crew Cab?
  • The roof rack consisting of the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 59" # RRVA150B-2, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA and Fit Kit # DK043 will fit your 2018 Ram 2500 Crew Cab with sunroof. You will be able to use the tilt function of the sunroof when you don't have anything loaded, but the manufacturer states not to use the sunroof with the rack installed for liability and safety. Many people still will do so at their own risk, but there will be wind noise from the rack...

  • Roof Rack and Roof Tent Recommendation for 2014 Ram 1500 Quad Cab
  • We have 2-person roof rack tents like the Yakima SkyRise part # Y07436 which are designed to fit roof racks like we have for your 2014 Ram 1500 quad cab. This tent requires you install a roof rack with at least a 165 lb weight capacity so for your vehicle I'd recommend the Rhino Rack Roof rack part numbers # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 as it fits your vehicle, has the needed capacity, is easy to install, and has aero shaped bars for minimal wind noise. When used with a rack that...

  • Where Does Feet of Rhino Rack Roof Rack Install on Roof of 2016 Ram
  • When you install a roof rack on a vehicle you have to use the locations that the rack manufacturer recommends. They test the fit of the rack on the vehicle and know exactly where the strongest part of the roof is. I attached a picture that shows where to install the Rhino Rack part # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 on the roof of a similar Ram as yours.

  • Does Thule Hullavator Fit Rhino Rack Roof Rack for 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab
  • Yes, the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 that you referenced does fit the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 that is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab. The Hullavator would easily install in the top channels of the roof rack and would give you a super easy way to transport a kayak!

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Parts for 2017 Ram 2500 Crew Cab
  • All Rhino-Rack roof rack setups for your 2017 Ram 2500 Crew Cab are shown on the linked page. You can look these over to see if any of your existing rack components match up so that you can install them on your 2017 Ram. Please note that all Rhino-Rack options for the new truck are the 59-inch length. If you happen to have 59-inch Vortex Aero bars # RRVA150B-2 or # RRVA150S-2 then all you need to mount them on the Ram are the Leg Kit # RRRLKVA and Fit Kit # DK043. If instead you have...

  • What is the Best Roof Rack for Carrying 2 Kayaks on a 2016 Ram 1500?
  • My recommendation would be the Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System which is composed of part # Y00423, part # Y00146, and part # Y06135. This sturdy, aero bar package reduces wind noise and has a sleek look to compliment your Ram 1500. I also recommend using the etrailer.com J-Style Kayak Carriers part # E98878 for the kayaks you plan on carrying. This carrier comes complete with necessary tie downs you'll need for safe transport that won't scratch your paint. While the recommended Yakima...

  • Roof Racks for Crew Cab and Camper Shell on 2013 Ram 1500
  • Of all roof rack options for your 2013 Ram 1500 Crew Cab, shown on the linked page, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero rack system consisting of parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK043. This rack is illustrated in the linked review video. This rack is cost-effective and features quieter aerodynamic crossbars for reduced wind noise. For the camper shell you can use the mating track-mount Vortex Aero rack system # Y02-490B. An installation video is linked.

  • Recommendations For Carrying 2 Canoes On Front Of 2012 Dodge 3500 While Towing A Fifth Wheel
  • Although we can come up with components that would work, because the canoes would be carried upside down, and hanging so far out in front of the vehicle roof, the force of the wind the canoes would experience while driving down the road will try to lift the canoes, which can actually place more force on the roof rack than it was designed for. I would not recommend carrying the canoes while using the fifth wheel. With that being said and if you still wish to install a system that would...

  • Carrying a 12.5 foot Inflatable Fishing Raft on a 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab with Camper Shell
  • For a roof rack to install on the Leer camper shell of your 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab I recommend the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack # TH29200XT. Since it installs on your camper there is some drilling required which will make it more of a permanent installation, but it will provide a great rack that has a weight limit that is the same as your camper. A roof rack on your Mega Cab might not be necessary since you are planning on using the Yakima LongArm # Y01149-1150, but if you decide to I...

  • Are Locks Available for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack Crossbars # RRVA118B-2
  • Yes, indeed! The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Black Aluminum Roof Rack Crossbars # RRVA118B-2, and their silver-color counterparts # RRVA118S-2, both can be fitted with locking end caps to secure your rack-mounted items. The locking end caps are part # RRVA-LEC4 and this kit consists of a set of four end caps and two keys. Please do note that this particular crossbar is 44-inches, not long enough for your truck. Suitable longer bars are available, however. For reference I have linked you to...

  • Roof Rack and Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 3500 Crew Cab
  • We have just what you would need. First you would need to start with a roof rack on your 2016 Ram 3500, for that the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 that you referenced is a confirmed fit that would work well. Then for a cargo basket that would fit this rack well the Thule Canyon part # TH859XT would be confirmed as a fit and would work well. This basket measures 49" x 40" x 6" and can carry up to 150 lbs.

  • Cargo Carrying Recommendations For 2011 Toyota RAV4
  • Sounds like you have a great trip planned. We have several hitch-mounted carriers to choose from that fit a 2 inch receiver opening. I have attached a link to all of the carriers we offer that you can take a look at. From my research I found that your 2011 Toyota RAV4 has a towing capacity of 1,500 lbs. That means you have a tongue weight capacity of approximately 150 lbs. Tongue weight is the weight of the cargo carrier you place in the hitch added to the weight of any cargo you place...

  • Recommended Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for 2014 Ram 3500 Crew Cab Big Horn
  • For a Rhino-Rack roof rack system for your 2014 Ram 3500 Crew Cab Big Horn that has the nicest OEM-like appearance I suggest the 2500-Series rack # RRRS416B. This rack features quieter matte black aerodynamic crossbars for less wind noise and it has a 165-lb weight capacity on your truck. If it were my truck I'd go for this rack: lower price, nicer looks and same weight capacity. Their heavy-duty rack system that you referenced, made of parts # RB1500, # RRRLKHD and # DK043, offers the...

  • How Much Can the Roof Hold On a Coleman Sea Pine Pop-Up Camper for Use with Roof Rack
  • I took a look in the manual for the Swagman Roamer LT Roof Rack part # S80510 which appears to be what you are using and on page 1 (step 1) it states that before installation you will need to contact the trailer manufacturer to ensure the trailer is structurally strong enough to support 150 lbs on the roof. Unfortunately, I would not be able to inform you of the roof weigh capacity for your pop-up camper which is why you will need to reach out to the manufacturer. If it turns out that...

  • Parts Needed to Carry 4 Bikes on Roof and Front Hitch of 2012 Ram 3500
  • For a roof rack for your 2012 Ram 3500 the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 is a confirmed fit. It has a 165 lb weight capacity but you would need to also check owners manual of the truck to determine it's roof capacity and be sure to go with lower rating. Since cargo space is limited you would then want to go with a roof bike rack that allows the front wheel to remain installed on the bike like the Thule Criterium part # TH599000. For a front hitch the...

  • How to Carry a Canoe While 5th Wheel Towing with a 2016 Ram 2500 4-Door
  • To carry a canoe with your 2016 Ram 2500 while also towing a 5th wheel trailer you need a front mount hitch, a roof rack, and a carrier or padding to protect your canoe. If you have the front tow hooks I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65063 because it doesn't require any drilling or fascia trimming for the installation. If you don't have the front tow hooks then I recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7900 instead which essentially is the same thing but it comes with the...

  • Roof Rack Needed To Use Thule Hullavator on 2011 RAV 4
  • It sounds like you need cross bars for your 2011 RAV 4 because the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist with Tie-Downs # TH898 does require either round, square, aerodynamic, elliptical or cross bars with top channels of a roof rack to attach to. If your RAV4 has factory installed rails that run front to back, then I recommend the Thule WingBar Crossbars part # TH711420 with the Rapid Crossroad feet part # TH450R that attach to the raised side rails on the RAV4. If your...

  • What is Meant by Naked Roof for Roof Rack Fit?
  • A naked roof means that there is nothing else on the roof, from roof lights to side rails that are mounted on top of the roof that run front to back, though that is not an option on your 2016 Ram 2500 so you have a number of roof rack options. The Rhino Rack 2500, which consists of crossbars # RRVA150B-2, legs # RRRLKVA, and fit kit # DK043 is a fit for your '16 Ram 2500 so long as it has a Mega Cab or Crew Cab. This rack uses aero crossbars to give you a quiet ride and have C-channels...

  • Will the Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Roof Rack Fit 2015 Ram 1500 Crew Cab with Sunroof
  • Yes, the Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Roof Rack, which consists of parts # RB1500, # RRRLKHD, and # DK043, will fit your 2015 Ram 1500 crew cab with a sunroof. Placement of the crossbars is very specific and I have included an attachment which illustrates the measurements for your Ram, as well as the measurement process. With these measurements you will be able to determine exactly where the crossbars will sit in comparison to your sunroof.

  • Thank you for the information. I see that your Buddy Bike Sport is 43 lbs and has a wheel base of 58.1 inches. For your 2016 Ram 2500, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65063 which has a 500 lb vertical load capacity. The Curt # C31015 is only a fit for 4WD models and has the 500 lb vertical load. The Draw-Tite option does not require fascia trimming and will also give you better ground clearance. This will allow you to use the Hollywood...

Curt front hitch # 31374 or the Draw-Tite # 65062 are confirmed fits for both 2WD and 4WD versions of your Ram 1500. Having a front hitch also means you have the option to install a hitch-mounted snow plow such as # K2AVAL8219, a cargo carrier like # C18153 or another hitch-mount...

  • Fitting a 2012 Toyota RAV4 with the Rhino Rack Nautic Kayak Carrier
  • To fit the Rhino Rack Nautic kit, part # RR571 for side loading and part # RR571 for rear loading, to your 2012 Toyota RAV4 will require that you have a roof rack installed. These are not confirmed fits for the Toyota RAV4's factory rails, however you can check for compatibility by measuring your bars' height and width. The Nautics will fit crossbars that are up to 3-7/8 inches wide and 1-3/8 inches tall. If they aren't correctly sized, or you don't have a roof rack installed, you...
