Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Roof Rack Legs Review

Hi, everyone. It's Evangeline here at etrailer and today we'll be taking a look at our Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Legs which are 8 1/4 inches tall here at etrailer. So these are going to be ideal If you have a Jeep, if you have a van, if you have a vehicle with either factory mounted gutters or if you install those gutters yourself but you also want a way to build or make a Rhino-Rack system. So these are your slightly taller than average gutter mount legs and that's gonna be ideal if you need a little extra height or clearance. Maybe you're carrying around skis with extra large bindings and you need that clearance underneath. Or maybe the way you have your gutters mounted is a little bit below the roof level compared to other vehicles.

Whatever situation you're in, let's see if this video will help you out with figuring if these are the right legs for you. So the towers themselves are made of nylon so that is a little bit more lightweight than let's say the steel towers you would see on your more traditional, let's say naked roof towers or the ones that clamp onto your roof. So this nylon again is lightweight but it's also UV resistant. So as you have this on your roof, as you have this on your gutter, it is gonna be exposed to the elements. It is going to be exposed to the sun and that's where their UV resistance comes in handy because you don't want it deteriorating underneath the sunlight.

With this being lightweight though, there is a glass reinforcement on the inside and that adds to its weight capacity as well as its durability. So the actual height measurement of this is going to be 8 1/4 inches tall. So that height is going to be from the channel of your gutter to right where your crossbar is attached. So it's not the total height but the usable height of your tower. So from there, you can then estimate from the underneath your crossbar, whether it be your Vortex crossbar or your square crossbar, that's gonna be the clearance you have from your roof to your crossbar.

So measure your own gutter mount or your own channel to see if this will work with your vehicle. Now, this is not using lock and key to secure it. What it does use is its own hex tool or hex key. It has its own special shape from Rhino-Rack and this is what is used to either tighten down or loosen the bolts holding the clamp into place. So if someone does not have this special hex tool, they won't be able to undo it.

So not the same as having your own key and your own lock keyed to or keyed to itself but it's still a form of security measure. Now the install process is really simple for these. All you need is a gutter to mount these towers to. You need the kit itself, you need your crossbars and you need some tools. So my final thoughts about these gutter mounts is that they give you a pretty decent height or clearance above your roof. So whether you have certain vehicles where you need access to the sunroof and you're worried about those really low profile bars that don't give you enough, if you have, let's say cargo or items that you are carrying that require a little bit more clearance like your skis with large bindings. Or if you have, let's say a solar panel on top of your roof and you just wanna get above that, this might be a great option for you. If you're just using a roof rack as a roof rack and you're not concerned about clearance but maybe a little bit more about looks, check out our recommended fit for your vehicle. Those are usually a little bit more low profile, look a little bit more factory like. They'll give you as much clearance but again, there's pros and cons, it does depend on you and your situation but I hope this video helped you out with that decision making. And that was a look here at our Rhino-Rack Gutter Mounted Legs which are 8 1/4 inches tall here at etrailer. My name is Evangeline and I hope this helps you out. Enjoy the journey..

  • Roof Rack for an A-Liner Pop Up Camper with Windows Taller than Most Racks
    I love a challenge and you certainly provided one!. If your A-Liner has rain gutter channels on it you can use 2 sets of the Rhino Rack Gutter Feet, # RL280S4, which are 11 inches tall. Don't have gutters? You can get 2 sets of artificial rain gutters, # 739AHALF. No where to attach rain gutters on the sides? No problem! Get some Rhino-Rack track, # RTC14, a couple sets of track adapters, # RTRL, and the 2 sets of gutter feet, # RL280S4. Then you just need a Rhino-Rack heavy duty or aero...

  • 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Rubicon Roof Rack Recommendation to Fit Sky One Touch Roof
    From what I'm seeing the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Rubicon has the gutters so you'll be able to use the 59" Vortex Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 with either the 8-1/4" # RL210S2 or 11" # RL280S4-2 gutter mount legs. I've seen some videos of these having enough clearance for the Sky One Touch roof but Rhino-Rack still doesn't list these as a fit so won't cover any warranty of the roof rack if it becomes damaged as a result of using it with this system. I'm not sure why they haven't tested and approved...

  • Will Roof Rails Work On a Teardrop Trailer [email protected]
    I do have an option for you but roof rails won't work very well on a teardrop trailer, even if you were able to get the rails to conform, it's likely the accessories would bind due to the steep angles. Instead, you will need to use artificial rain gutter mounts which is what most other teardrop trailers use from what I found. I have attached some parts below.

    Yes, we have something for this, I suggest the Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Roof Rack Crossbars - Silver - 59" # RB1500, and the 8" Tall Gutter Feet, # RL210S2 or event the # RL280S4-2. These roof-rack legs are designed to mount on your vehicle's factory rain gutters and mount with included brackets and hardware, no drilling required.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2021 Jeep Wrangler with Sky Touch Roof
    I have a great roof rack option for a 2021 Jeep Wrangler with Sky Touch Roof. The roof rack will need to have very tall legs in order to clear the roof while open and it must attach to the rain gutters so options are very limited. I recommend the Rhino-Rack system below. - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 - RLTP Leg Adapters for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA-FK1-2 - Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs - Gutter Mount - 11" Tall # RL280S4-2

  • Recommended Roof Rack for a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Sky On-Touch Roof

This system attaches to the rain gutters on the side and then lifts the bars up and over the top. The aero crossbars will work great with most carriers like the Rhino-Rack SUP and Surfboard Pads part # RRRWP04.
