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 vehicle's naked roof using the Backbone system.


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.


accessory bars

Accessory bars (RR43138B - sold separately) can be added to accommodate clamp-mounted accessories that fit in the space between the platform's planks, such as bike carriers and cargo boxes. And because the bars have C-channels, you can use them to mount additional channel-mounted gear in the open space between the planks. By installing the accessory bars in the platform's integrated channels, you gain all the advantages of a traditional crossbar system, while maintaining the generous surface space of the platform.


front and side 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 (RR43160B - 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.


wind fairing

An optional wind fairing (RR43251 - sold separately) is available to cut down on wind noise even further.


Strong, Durable Construction

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.


Custom Fit Installation

This Pioneer platform rack is custom fit for your vehicle and includes all the parts necessary to install it your vehicle's naked roof with the Backbone system. The platform comes unassembled, so you will have to put it together before proceeding to the installation. After this is complete, use a drill and rivnut tool to install the Backbone on your vehicle's roof. This creates permanent fixed mounting points. The bars attached to the bottom of the platform connect to the Backbone and secure the Pioneer in place.

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

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

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

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 Rack


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

If you're looking for a tray/platform roof rack this should be it. Works and looks great. Very versatile and useful. I plan to carry kayaks and numerous camping/tailgating equipment with this platform. The install took a while but is well worth it. Also, shipping was longer than estimated but I was updated several times by etrailer about the shipment. 368428

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Rack


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

One year review. The Pioneer Platform Rack with Backbone shows no sign of aging, deterioration, or other. Two shovels, High Lift jack and four Maxtrax permanently. The mounting accessories are rock solid. No roof leaks, gaskets working well. Great product. 516824

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Rack


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

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. Thanks Dena and Carol C. 599281

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Pioneer in Roof Rack


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
