Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Main

The low-profile, aerodynamic Rhino-Rack RVP roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on your vehicle's roof quietly and with little wind drag. It's designed for installation on a vehicle with fixed mounting points (or flush side rails with internal fixed mounting points). The rack's Vortex Aero crossbars have built-in rubber strips that disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bars are constructed of aluminum so they won't rust. These bars blend seamlessly with the support legs to provide a from-the-factory look, and they are custom cut to your specific vehicle so they require no adjustment during installation. The legs also include built-in locks that protect your gear and the rack from theft.


Aerodynamic Design

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Design

The rubberized Vortex strips in the top channel of each crossbar disrupt airflow with evenly spaced, wave-shaped grooves. This carefully controlled turbulence minimizes wind noise and whistling, so you won't need to add a fairing to your roof rack. And the slim, elliptical Vortex Aero crossbars cut through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.


Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Closer

The RVP roof rack has a flush-mount design so the crossbars terminate at the legs with no overhang. This provides the rack with a seamless, from-the-factory look.


Strong, Durable Construction

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Construction

The Vortex Aero crossbars are made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with H-shaped internal extrusions. These extrusions strengthen the bars without adding a significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bars won't rust so you can leave them on your roof year-round.


Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Bar Close

The rack's durable, glass-reinforced nylon legs are designed to stand up to cargo loads and weather extremes. They're also UV treated to withstand long-term exposure to sunlight.


Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Channel and Clamp Accessory

Each crossbar has a built-in C-channel so you can carry channel-mounted accessories such as bike racks, watersport carriers, and ski racks. The Vortex strips in the top channels come in pieces, so they're easier to adjust than a single long, continuous strip. You can remove, trim, and re-insert the Vortex strips around the mounting hardware of your accessories to keep the crossbar channels capped and quiet. Replacement strips (sold separately) are also available if you remove your accessories or switch to clamp-on accessories.


You can also attach most clamp-on accessories to the bars, and the Vortex strips provide a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on them.


Built-In Security

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Security

Locking covers on each support leg let you secure accessories mounted in the crossbar top channels. These sturdy nylon covers give the rack a finished look and also help secure the rack to your roof. The cover locks are keyed alike, so a single key opens all locks.

Nice product, like that it bolts to the car verses clamps. Perfect fit which was the most important thing for me after a nightmare experience from [online store]; you get what you pay for. This rack is sturdy, took about 35 minutes to install, and looks great on the Sorento.Perfect height, not too tall and blends with the lines of the vehicle. No noise while driving so I'm stoked that a fairing isn't needed. Didn't give 5 stars because when factory / etrailer cut both the extruded aluminum rails to length the black finish has some chips / cosmetic defects. Minor thing, can't see it unless you look for it, and it is a roof rack so it will get banged up eventually regardless.
First purchase with etrailer and I will shop here again. Will also consider Rhino Rack products again as well.

Over a year and still Loving this product. Still think it is one the best looking and sturdiest racks on the market. Carried bikes and kayaks all the time without worry. Ive also taken it through the carwash atleast 50 times.

2018 Kia Sorento

The bars went on my 2018 Kia Sorento quite easily. Something I didn't realize was that because they have to be mounted in a prescribed position when I received my Rhino roof basket the baskets mounting points don't line up at all with the crossbars. I was able to mount the front as intended but I had to basically kind of make my own mounting brackets for the rear of the basket. My design worked and looks ok but it's totally not the way I would have wanted to mount it. Had I known I'd have spent the extra money to get the crossbars that you can put wherever you want to.


Comments
I have used the rack numerous times in the year since I got it. It still looks brand new and was well worth the money.

2020 Kia Sorento

Required some customizing. Fit within an 1/8 of an inch.




by:

I've made a big mistake. I didn't realize one was shorther than the other. So when i installed them, I shorthen the longer one to fit at the front. When I took the other piece for the back, then I figured my mistake and realised I screwed-up.
Too bad because it looked super nice.




by:

I likely would not but this model again. The installation was not fully clear, and what should have taken 30 minutes took 2 days, mainly due to lack of clarity leading to stripped threads on the bolts because the front bar was cut too wide. After I cut the front bar a quarter inch shorter, and bought replacement bolts, it went easily. But I should have bought one of the more expensive models that clamps on to the rail; More flexible, if less strong. No concerns with the actual construction.

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


Finally finished my Rhino-rack roof rack install on my 2022 Hyundai Kona. I had problems understanding confusing directions and found out after calling and sending a video that there were wedges missing from my original shipment. I thought the bolts were too long only because pieces were missing. I thank Wayne from customer service for helping me figure this out and shipping them out next day air. I am happy with the install and they are sturdy and high quality. Just think they should make directions easier to understand. Happy customer just in time as we are planning a vacation starting tomorrow night to the beach! Good job etrailer.com!


Comments
After using my Rhino-rack for over 5 months now I am very happy. Has been a sturdy and well built rack with minimal noise. Appearance excellent too. Very pleased I chose Rhino-rack!

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


Installation was straightforward and I feel stronger than the factory crossbars which clamp on, as these cross bars screw into the connect points for the rails. These rails are also flatter than the factory installed rails. But are not perfectly flat. Roof-mounted bike racks may still lean a little bit. Which what I was trying to solve by replacing the factory cross rails/bars.

Perfect fit and easy install on our 2018 Explorer. Very sturdy for use with our roof box. The only time these whistle is when the moonroof is tilted up, not with the moonroof closed or fully opened.

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


We bought a car with docking stations but no roof racks. After searching the internet I called etrailer. Jaime listened to my story, asked for a picture of the roof of the car so she could better help me. Her customer service was worth every penny we spent. The product was exactly what we needed and the instructions were easily understood. Installation went so smoothly my husband and I are still talking lol

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


I purchased these crossbars for my 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The fit guide from Rhino Rack indicated that they are "not confirmed to fit." However, I took a chance and they fit perfectly. They actually look like they were installed at the factory.


Comments
Thank you for your review. This has sparked us into asking the manufacturer to test this on a few of these models and we have added it to our fit guide! Thanks for your help!

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


Nice looking and very functional, but a significant increase in wind noise if your car is newer (quieter cabin). If they were easier to take on and off, I'd keep them off other than when needed, but too much hassle to take on and off. Overall, I'm satisfied but wish they didn't create so much wind noise and were easier on and off the rails.

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


This product is not compatible with a Mazda cx-9 2019, despite etrailer claims to the contrary. Had to cancel vacation after customer support was not able to provide and documentation as to how it could possibly be installed. I like e trailer, but am sticking to products where they have videos showing how it installs to the exact model of car I own.


Comments
We do not have any install videos in part due to the ease of install. These are designed to go with fixed mounting points so no measuring is required. If you look at the product page you will find instructions about how to install these.

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


The Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars works well after many uses this past year. The only problem is that it makes noise in a crosswind, and while I thought I could leave it on the Jeep permanently, I have to take it off to eliminate the noise. To be fair, there is no set uf bars like this that will not make noise... unless they are OEM designed and installed. No one I have ever met with after-market bars installed has ever said there is no noise. They all have noise.


Comments
I bought these Rhino Racks in 2019 for my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. I had searched around extensively and looked at all the major rack manufacturers for racks that would integrate into the design of the Jeep and meet these requirements: 1. Racks with a rounded end “aero” design that looked integrated into the vehicle’s appearance 2. Make no noise while mounted and remain mounted on the Jeep when not being used 3. Easy to install using the OEM roof rack fittings and easy to remove if and when necessary 4. Provide clearance above the rear roof “fin” antenna if a large flat object were to cover the racks 5. Be strong and not slag in the middle under heavy weight. 6. Have some rubber grip on the top the rack itself to keep loaded surfaces steady 7. Purchased at a reasonable price point in relationship to the vehicle. After 3 months of searching, I decided to purchase the Rhino Racks from E-Trailer. After more than a year of practical use, I can say that purchasing these racks were a good decision. They fit all but two of the seven requirements I had regarding wind noise and periodic rack removal. Regarding requirement #2…wind noise… I have found there is no roof rack made today unless it is an OEM installation that will not make noise. No matter what they say, they all make some kind of wind noise. The reason for that is that wind direction, strength, and outside vehicle design all impact how wind is channeled around the vehicle and produces noise. So, to eliminate wind noise, requirement #2 is not fulfilled. The racks have to be removed…but even while attached, the wind noise is less that other racks. Regarding requirement #3…easy rack removal… these racks only met 50 of this requirement. To remove the racks, you have to unscrew the top racks from the base mounts. While some of the more expensive racks Thule, Yakima have easy to remove schemes, the Rhino Racks require two steps to be removed. This process will take only 15 minutes. First, you have to unlock and remove the end cover caps, and second, you have to unscrew the top portion of the rack from the base mount with an Alan wrench or socket tool. The base mounts are installed into the OEM roof rack track sections, and can be left there when the top racks are removed. They do not make any noise, because plastic caps cover the attachment bolts. Also, the Alan wrenches for each rack can be stored inside its locking cap. In addition, both roof racks can be stored easily in the back cargo area of the Jeep when removed. Regarding load carrying stability… these racks have always been up to task, regardless of the weight or weird shape or size of the load. Using the right support equipment, the load can always be tied down and securely and safely fastened to the racks without contact or damage to the load or the vehicle. The customer agents at E-Trailer were responsive with excellent telephone help in clarifying some of the installation instructions. They even sent me revised diagrams and an extra part. I can truly say that the folks at E-Trailer were enthused at answering my questions and supporting my purchase. So, all things considered… I like these Rhino Racks, E-Trailer, and I recommend them for the price. They look good on the vehicle, and they fit five out of the seven requirements that I had. They are not that hard to install, and removal is not that much of an inconvenience when you have the tools at hand. I am glad I bought them and would buy them again given the same cost and design requirements.

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


Great service from etrailer; terrible product design and service from Rhino Rack. BUYER BEWARE: this rack mounts to factory hardware inside the factory rail. However, the factory hardware (welded to the roof) is incredibly cheap and weak (not steel). One wrong move with your wrench and you can snap the roof bolts or strip them. Best part? They aren't replaceable by Hyundai or a body shop. Good luck! What a brilliant design. Thanks for doing R&D, Rhino Rack! (Seriously, don't risk it with these racks.)

Easy to install, it's very strong, easy to transport my kayaks, and my attached Thule Stackers work well with it. It's a great rack mounted on my factory Honda CRV roof rails.

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


I love these racks! They stand apart for the appearance and capacity of others in the industry. I recommend them highly.


Comments
They have been working very well over the last year. They have not sagged under load, and are fairly quiet for wind noise. I also note that the finish is very tough and have not seen any deterioration from many machine car washes. I really love the neoprene s that prevent shifting of the load as long as it is tied down. I still love this product!

Review from a similar RVP in Roof Rack


I purchased a Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack (RRRVP27) for my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. The product installation was straightforward and the crossbars have a sleek finished look. I use the crossbars in conjunction with two Thule Sidearm 594XT bicycle racks and the setup works great.

I appreciate that the product blends in nicely with the look of the vehicle as the crossbars do not extend past the roof line and that security locks are included with the system.

One drawback is that the crossbars, which are designed to be whisper quiet, whistle while driving. I have a panoramic sunroof which may be a contributing factor to the increased noise levels and this may vary with a traditional roof.


Comments
Unfortunately, a certain amount of wind noise is unavoidable once a roof rack is installed on a vehicle. To minimize the noise caused by wind turbulence, make sure the rubber strips are installed on the top and the underside of the crossbars. Any gaps in the strips will allow the wind to catch, and will cause noise.

  • Troubleshooting Bar Heights Be Wrong for Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack for 2016 Kia Sorento
    I checked your order notes and found that you ordered the Rhino Rack RVP87 part # RR98TB for your 2016 Kia Sorento. Since you said the height difference seems extreme what most likely happened is you installed the feet of the rack in the wrong position. This roof rack kit comes with feet that are 65 mm high and 45 mm high to compensate for the height difference on the roof of your vehicle. So what you'd want to try is reversing where you have the feet of the rack installed and that should...

    If you have the Rhino Rack RVP # RR98TB roof rack on your 2017 Kia Sorento then you will have 220lbs of capacity with the bars. Make sure your roof of the Kia can handle that weight as well. You can find this in your vehicle's owners manual. As far as strapping them down, I would use plenty of straps # ETBMB-05852 to make sure that you're not leaving any wiggle room for the wood to slide around whenever you hit bumps and such on the road.

If you have raised side rails on your Sorento then I recommend getting the Rhino-Rack RVP # RR98TB. These have more of an OEM look and are super easy to install. If you have a naked roof, you can get the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425, BaseLine Towers # Y00146 and these two base plate kits # Y06159 # Y06170.
