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, side rails, and frame to accommodate a wide variety of Rhino-Rack accessories, including awnings, light brackets, and more. The platform mounts directly to your vehicle's raised factory side rails using SX roof rack legs.

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, side rails, and frame 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 (RR43137B - 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.

Utilitarian Design with Rugged, Off-Road Look

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

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 on the raised factory side rails on your vehicle's roof. The platform comes unassembled, so you will have to put it together before proceeding to the installation. After this is complete, clamp the SX legs to your vehicle's raised side rails. The bars attached to the bottom of the platform connect to the legs and secure the Pioneer in place.

The instructions on etrailer were way better than the ones that came from rhino. The rack is awesome seems to be well built I would highly recommend it to anybody looking at doing any over-landing or tent roof camping


Loving my new Ford Bronco Sport Badlands model and the Pioneer Platform rack! With the Bronco Sport being so new, locating quality accessories was a bit of a challenge. I was excited to see Rhino Rack had the Pioneer Platform rack system I was looking for to start my build! Vicki at etrailer was super helpful in finding the parts, as listed on the Rhino Rack website, to make up the system. The etrailer site had not been updated to include the compatibility with the Pioneer System yet for the Bronco Sport. The parts were actually in stock and ready to ship! I’m giving the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform 5 stars for ease of assembly and product quality. Assembly and install took about 3 hours, with several fore/aft adjustment to allow for complete operation and clearance for the Bronco Sports moonroof. This rack is the foundation for the complete “overland” conversion to come!


The roof rack is great and very useful. The assembly is simple but it was difficult to figure out because the instructions were useless. Mounting on my vehicle was difficult. It was a situation of needing to tighten it once it was in place but not having enough access to the face of the bolt to get a tool on it. Now that it’s up, it’s looking good and because it’s not that easy to fasten it back on, it’s going to stay up there.

Very easy to assemble and install on existing roof rails.


Very nice rack. It holds well and not too noisy when on the highway. I did drill a couple holes in the rack to hold my roof top tent down. Also like how many accessories are available for the Pioneer Platform Rack.


Looks great especially with the full rails. However there are 2 little things that it was lacking; when you try to log into site to find measurements for the cross bars it is a pain and took longer than the build to find. I would recommend etrailer include the fitting specs with package or at least email a pdf of it. 2nd item- the package came with hole plugs but no instructions what or how they fit into this. I later found out as I installed this that I had to drill 4 holes to accommodate the tool to tighten the sx legs. Over all great product


Product is solid, the instructions are pretty hard to figure out and Rhino Rack does not offer clear instructions for this specific model on their webpage. Over all etrailer was great to work with the only reason I wouldn’t give 5 stars is lack of clear instructions by platform model.

Great product, excellent quality, great finish very sturdy and mounted to my Vortex bars perfectly.

Couple of cons but I'm not going to knock down the review because of it. Product came with instructions that are out of date for the new racks they are shipping. Platform also came with some missing hardware. Two missing nut retainers,two nuts,two screws and two washers. Was able to put it together with Hardware I had on hand..


I called etrailer to verify fitment on my 2013 Ford E-350 XL. Everything arrived sooner than quoted, and instructions were clear. It took me approximately 6 hours to assemble by myself. I had 3 buddies over to put it on the van because it is ~100lbs and 100”x62”. We put towels on top of the van and slowly slid the fully assembled rack on top of the van. It took a while to level everything (30 mins?), but overall went on well and looks great.

The instructions didn’t clarify where the C-channel bars are supposed to be spaced to, but I used basic math skills and spaced each C-channel evenly spaced. It feels very strong. I believe it was 33mm on center for each C-Channel.

Looking forward to camping in a few weeks!


Fantastic rack, easily modified to accommodate tents/cargo/whatever. It's not quiet though, so do yourself a favor and get the faring.


Exactly as advertised! I love this rack. I have it on the top of my 2014 E350. No


This is a solid and versatile rack. Really well constructed. I bought mine wider than the vehicle for extra space. I found many generic options for attachment accessories. It's flat when I need it to be for airport parking garages. One year later, it's still awesome!


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.


Overall, I like the rack. I use it for a hard shell RTT and it has held up well through several camping and off-roading trips. I chose this rack for the low profile look, weight and mounting system.


Just perfect, my shipment arrived in a couple of days. There was a hole in the box that may have occured during shipment that resulted in one of the slat being scratched, luckily I had black satin paint so I just soared over it so problem solved. Took me a while to assemble the platform as fherr were a lot of bolts and nuts to turn. But the end result is a nice sturdy platform rack that I will be putting to good use for my family’s upcoming adentures.


Assembly was fairly easy and overall seems like a good product. I did have a couple of screws (2 of the Alloy Locking Tabs did not have the M6x20mm Security Head Screw (black) or associated washers) missing from the package but was still able to use as is. Hopefully I can have the screws and washers mailed to me.


This fits my 2024 Toyota Sienna that came with the factory roof rack + Cross bars. The material of construction look and feel high quality. The assembly took quite a bit of time because the bolts and nuts were labeled to match the instruction. The instruction could use a little update.


Slik in design, tough in outlook, easy to assemble this is rhino roof rack awesome ready for today and future adventure.


I did a lot of research before settling on this roof platform. I’m really happy with the build quality and once it’s all together it has a lot of strength and versatility. My ONLY complaint is that the “Quick Foot” mounting feet for the factory rail that was sent to me did not have matching key codes. The codes are clearly listed on the boxes and someone at didn’t bother to grab a matching set. Bummer.
After waiting for shipping and finally pulling it all out for the install I was too far into the project to ask for replacement feet. I just installed what was sent.


I will update this accordingly once issues are corrected. Received my Pioneer Platform Rack for my e350 Quigley Van. The box was highly damaged and taped prior to delivery. I unboxed and layed out everything. Missing the entire hardware box- no bolts, nuts, tool, corner pieces, nothing. Contacted E Trailer immediately and was told they would be sending out a complete set of hardware. Shipping on my rack was extremely fast, which is always appreciated. I am hoping that the parts box arrives as quickly so I can get this assembled and update my rating.


Well I must say I am impressed--with the Rhino Rack and etrailer! This big ole Pioneer platform package arrived really quickly and was in perfect shape in and out--none of this already opened noise you hear about from sketchy vendors. The platform quality is also really good; I didn't expect it to be so good. I also really like how low it sits; they were obviously designing this to fit the Outback just right. I am a happy camper! Thanks etrailer for making this process worry/pain-free.
