Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar

These low-profile, aerodynamic Vortex Aero crossbars let you build a stylish aftermarket roof rack from scratch. The crossbars require 4 Rhino-Rack legs (manufactured in 2014 or later) and a custom fit kit to mount it to your roof. Each bar extends past the roof rack legs to maximize the space for mounting carriers and accessories. Rubberized Vortex strips in each crossbar's top channel disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bars are constructed of aluminum so they won't rust. The crossbars also include Secure Core endcaps with plastic locks to help deter theft of channel-mounted accessories.


Aerodynamic Design

Vortex Aero noise-reducing top channel strips

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.


Strong, Durable Construction

Vortex Aero crossbar H-shaped extrusion

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.


No-Hassle Installation

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero bottom channel ruler

Each crossbar has a channel in the bottom for mounting to Rhino-Rack roof rack legs (sold separately). Each end of the channel includes a rubber ruler to help you center the bar on your roof. Simply use the numbers and hash marks on the rulers to ensure the legs are spaced properly in the channel.


Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar top-channel strips

Each Vortex Aero 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 3 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 shock-absorbing, no-slip cushions for any accessories that rest on them.


Built-In Security

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Secure Core locking endcaps

Each crossbar includes 2 Secure Core locking endcaps made of durable polypropylene. These endcaps lock with a universal tubular key. The polypropylene locks secure the endcaps to the crossbars and help to secure channel-mounted accessories to the crossbars. For maximum security, you can upgrade to endcaps with all-metal lock cores (RRVA-LEC4 - sold separately).

Video Transcript for Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2016 Acura MDX

Today on our 2016 Acura MDX we'll be doing a test fit of the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System, using part numbers RRVA137B-2 for the 54" Black Aluminum Crossbars, and then part number RRRLKVA for the 2500 Series Leg Kits, and then part number DK400 for the clamps and the pads. We've already got the front one installed as you can see here. We followed our instructions, we came from the door jam over to the center, we measured out the distance and how far we're supposed to be for our legs underneath the bars, and then we tightened everything up, and we got it. So let's go ahead and do the rear one together. First thing we'll do is we'll grab the leg first, and then our pad. We want to make sure that the arrow is pointing out, so away, and then we're going to push that on the bottom. Make sure that it seats all the way around.

Once we've got it seated let's go ahead and remove our bolt here. We'll grab our clamp. Now you need to make sure that you have the correct clamp because they differ from the back and the front. We don't need to tighten this down all the way. Just need to get the bolt started so it's loosely installed, and then we can turn our crossbar over. Now when you get your kit it's going to come with a scale that gets inserted through here.

When you follow your instructions it's going to give you a number to set your leg. For demonstration purposes we're just going to be using our little tape measure here. We're going to measure this direction here. We'll measure it out and we'll set that. First we'll need to remove the end cap and we're going to slide this on here.

All right, once we get it on there then we can take our tape, set it to where it's supposed to be, and once we have that set we can take our included tool and tighten that down. One we've got that tight we'll replace our end cap and we can actually use the rest of the strip that we have to fill in the gap on the other side. All right. Once we have that done we can open up the rear doors of our MDX and set our crossbar in place. Now in some cases it's not a bad idea to get an extra set of hands, but you'll want to set it down gently in the roundabout area. Now according to our manufacturer's instruction we need to have 29 centimeters ...

Excuse me, that'd be 75 centimeters from center to center. Once we get that lined up let's go ahead and check the other side. Almost got it there. All right. That looks pretty good. All right then, we can grab our included tool. Now a few things you want to look out for, you want to make sure that your clamp is going to go underneath your door here, and that your pad is actually seated on top of the roof. Once you've ensured that that is the case you can then tighten it down. Now you want to be sure and tighten them down evenly on both sides, so we'll go ahead and seat that clamp right there and then we'll run over to the other side and do the same thing. Now that we know that they are both seated correctly we can just kind of keep an eye on it and then tighten them both down evenly. This side actually looks pretty good. We'll finish up on the other side. Now the included tool actually has a built-in torque mechanism, and that's actually this blue portion here. You tighten it up until that runs straight, and that's how you know that you've got it. All right, now the only thing left to do is to put on our caps, lock them up. You of course want to make sure and set it in correctly. We can also lock up our end caps of our crossbar. With the included tool lock those up so we know they're in place. Then we're ready to load up our favorite Rhino-Rack accessory and hit the road. Well that's going to complete our test fit of the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Roof Rack System on our 2016 Acura MDX.

2013 Ford Explorer

Installed on a 2013 Explorer. Went on perfectly with the SXB legs. Bars extend past the legs 3" for a very nice appearance. Silver bars/black feet on a silver Explorer is perfect. Will likely use the bars to mount a cargo carrier on (16-18 CF) but haven't done it yet. Just the most faint/slight whistle at 65 MPH. Can only be heard with no radio on. Absolutely no issue. Solid as a rock. 286955

Toyota FJ Cruiser

These slick looking, quality made, aluminum, aero bars came with the RLCP25 kit, to fit my FJ Cruiser. It didn't have the big, bulky, useless for carrying much of anything factory rack. I like the look of the full size racks/ baskets, but didn't want to spend $800 + truck freight to get one. These cross bars are perfect for carrying my 14' canoe, plus whatever else with various cargo carrying accessories. They are light, yet combined carry near 100+ lbs. of gear. There is a rubber strip in the top slot, bottom slots and plastic strips to seal those, once you slide the feet in the correct distance to be even on both sides for your vehicle, and black, plastic end caps to finish it off. You'll need a tape measure and 10mm socket wrench to attach to the feet, then re-tighten periodically for safety. They look great on mr ride, and I can deal with the rubbing/ humming sound, after putting them on, although it does sound like my tires rubbing the fender wells... 84838


Comments

Im still loving the Rhino Rack setup, including the Nautic 581 saddles. They bars were easy to remove for winter snow clearing, and to put back on in the Spring for my new kayak. The rack and straps all work great, and I recommend etrailer to anyone that asks where I got it.

I bought these racks for my 2014 Jeep Cherokee, and am incredibly pleased with everything! They were easy to assemble and get on the car, coming with fairly straightforward directions. We had them on in about an hour and a half. And the Aero design is great! No whistling or drag, and made it a lot easier to get my SUP around? Would absolutely recommend! 674221

Great item, pretty easy to install. No issues with whistling during a 500 mile highway trip with two boats. Ironically, the only noise was from the Yakima Jaylow, when it was folded down with no boat attached. I posted a longer review for the full setup on our 2019 Highlander with 2 biggish kayaks under reviews for the rack pillars, Item: RRRCL4. When fully tied down, we used hood loops front and rear for both boats. Great service from Carol C. 669380

Fit is good, sturdy rack, video instructions are great and easy to put on. Locks are not that great but will work for me. If someone really wanted to get to the bolt they could easily break the lock covers but then they would have to have the correct wrench. I would still recommend this as a great after market rack. 588056

Received Rhino roof rack for Toyota Highlander, 2018. Rapid delivery, easy assembly but takes an hour or so. Like the feature that racks are easy to put on and remove, after installation of custom mounting brackets. With this type of straight rack i have no desire to leave on all the time. Perfect for my application of occasional use for Kayak, lumber, doors, etc. 458520

I selected this product from etrailer.com because it was a great fit for my truck and a very good quality rack system. I am using one of the racks for the cab of my 2013 Chevy Silverado to support one end of our kayak's and utilizing a different style rack for the rear of the truck bed. I have custom toolboxes in the bed of the truck which prohibit me from using a complete ladder rack system for the kayak's. etrailer provided great service and fast shipping. The packaging was great as well. 455057



- RRVA137S-2
by:

Product looks great but came with no guide for my vehicle. This made installation take a little longer. The plastic plate that goes in the channel to eliminate wind noise must fit just right and that's where the guide comes in. The guide gives you the measurement for your vehicle. 452031

In order to make a final decision on selecting a rack for the roof of the car I contacted a trailer representative by telephone and found him to be extremely helpful, personable, and courteous. The rack was ordered Friday afternoon and promptly arrived late on the following Tuesday, a very short time for free delivery! At this time I have not tried to install the rack but it appears all of the necessary parts were delivered and I am very pleased at the excellent service I received from etrailer. 446369


Comments

The rack has worked out very well. It is easy to install and remove and is very secure when attached to the roof. I am always confident that the rack will perform without causing any problems and it is nice to have peace of mind when you are traveling at a high speed.

I followed install instructions very closely, pretty straight forward, but you have to ensure you measure twice and cut once. Not a complicated install but how well you do it determines the performance of the rack. Test drive showed it to be very quiet at city and high way speeds. A paper tape measure should be included with install kit, who has anything in the USA the measures millimeters or 32nds of an inch. Would definitely recommend product, feel it is sturdy and durable. Will meet my needs to carry RV equipment and a canoe if needed. 350888

I bought the Rhino-Rack for my 2014 KIA Soul "with a sun roof" and my wife and I installed it in about a half hour. it was soo easy and fits like it was manufactured just for my car. Everything I saw said that it was not for cars for the sun roofs but i measured and checked several friends before I ordered and bought and there looks to be no problems. It fits very well and the clearance is very sufficient. I can now carry my wood or kayaks or larger stuff around. 327874

Looks good and sturdy. But the end of aluminium bar should have been sanded. It's very sharp. Accidently it made a tiny scratch on my left finger with a little bleeding. Please be careful when you assemble this crossbar. 324709

2013 Honda CR-V

I purchased this rack for a "new to me" Honda CRV. I chose it for three reasons: the design is supposed to minimize wind noise, it is rated for a significantly higher load weight than many others, and the price was very reasonable. It also happens to be very nice looking. Assembly was pretty straight forward. I assembled the two units on the dining room table in about 45 minutes. It could be done much more quickly but I think it's good to take your time and read the instructions carefully. Mounting on the car roof was quick - about 15 minutes. Some reviewers complained that only two crossbar end caps locked. That was not the case with mine. All four locked into place I haven't driven the car on the highway yet, but there was no added noise driving around town. Etrailer shipped promptly, and all the required components were included. 295702

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


All the Rhino Rack products listed, ie Nautic kayak carrier,anchor straps,2500 series legs,and Vortex crossbars were shipped extremely quickly by etrailer, with exceptional customer assistance, and were all found to be of the highest quality materials. Installation was relatively simple with an assistant and the video by Rhino Rack was a valuable tool...once on my car, the system proved to be safe, secure and as sturdy as I could hope for. I would certainly recommend Rhino Rack systems in future, and will certainly rely on etrailer for any of my future needs. 662698

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


THE GENIUS OF A PERFECT SOLUTION It is not very often that a purchase for something as mundane as a utility device stirs such awe inspired appreciation and praise. I have just completed the installation of the RLCP Rhino Heavy Duty Canopy/Hard Tonneau Track Mount atop my A.R.E. Camper Shell. I am amazed at the attention to detail of each and every part which has been carefully engineered and perfectly manufactured. I am truly impressed by the genius of a perfect solution to my roof top cargo handling needs! From the mating surfaces of the injection molded towers and the lightweight, but durable extruded anodized aluminum crossbars, to the gentle contour of the rail stock to the camper rooftop, every single part has form, fit and function! The finished product is beautiful, durable, convenient, and for the money invested, economical. I give Five Stars of Praise to the Aussie friends at Rhino-Rack Australia Pty, Ltd. Equally praiseworthy is the superb performance of e-trailers, Inc. These folks distinguish themselves from the competition through their superior attributes of website presentation, pricing, order fulfillment and package integrity. This is a unique distribution partnership which is imbued with the highest standards of e-commerce. Job well done, everyone! 528546

This review is for the install. I will update it after I have had these rails in service for a while and can judge how well they stand up. First the instructions were very clear and I had no issues performing the assembly and installation. Once locked in place they appear to be very stable and secure. 641563

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Rack is very high quality. Quiet ride at all speeds. Installation video extremely helpful. The only issue I encountered was that the mounting bolts were bearly long enough to get through thickness of truck cap. I had to remove plastic thumb nuts and use thin fender washers to make it work. Very stressful situation after drilling 12 holes in my cap! These bolts need to be longer to allow for different thickness in caps. Otherwise, very satisfied with this rack. 603056

I'm absolutely in love with Katie, my sales consultant for her great help & excellent follow up. Fully expecting cheap Chinese junk. I was delighted with the quality of the product, (Rhino Rack) which was received day after New Years. Pretty cool when order was placed Dec 29th. Simple illustrated instructions made pre assembly a snap. Wind chill is 2 below zero so I'm going to wait a day or so to mount to car. Two thumbs up from me! 331614

I bought the Rhino Rack 2500 Series Legs, the Vortex Aero Crossbars, the 2500 Series Custom Fit Kit for the 2500 Series Legs, and a Thule Portage Canoe Carrier. All items arrived when George said they would, and I was given status updates throughout the whole process. The website was helpful in letting me know that these kits are NOT all in one kits. That is probably the best feature of the site in that it lets you know based on your vehicle what total number of kits you will need. All said, the racks and carrier worked well in transporting my canoe across state lines. I highly recommend the site. 486963

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


The Rhino Rack is very well made. I installed it my self on our 2016 Ford Escape, but had an assist from my wife to fine tune it at the end. There was no whistling or any other distracting wind noise on our 3,500 mile drive to visit family out West. A Sear's Cargo Box was easily mounted to the Rhino Rack and it remained centered and secured at western highway speed limits plus. The included locks on the roof mounts were the selling point for me. The Rhino Rack remained securely mounted to the roof with no additional adjustments or tightening being needed. Great Product. Donna P. @ etrailer was super with the order. 548034

Bought the 2500 Vortex kit for my 2015 F150. Very well made kit. Installation was a breeze. Just follow the directions and you can not mess it up. 513158

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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. 557941

Do you have a question about this Roof Rack?


  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Highlander
  • I recommend the Rhino Rack roof rack for your 2019 Toyota Highlander because the rack gives you aero shaped bars which will be very quiet, the racks are easy to install and well made, and because most roof racks that are nice as this cost quite a bit more. Now if you have the flush mounted rails on your roof that run front to back you'd want the part numbers # RRVA137S-2, # RRRCL4, and # RRRCP31-BK. Or, if you have a totally naked roof you'd want the part numbers # RRVA126S-2, # RRRCH4,...

  • Best Roof Rack for 2018 Ford Edge with Vista Roof
  • There is absolutely an option for you! The best roof rack for your 2018 Ford Edge with the Vista glass roof is the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack because it gives your car a rack that is extremely functional while maintaining a clean, refined look. The Rhino-Rack RS 2500 is available in two colors, Black # RRRS659B or Silver # RRRS659 and uses low-profile aerodynamic bars to ensure you have a quiet ride. The rack's aero bars combine with the rubber vortex strips in their top channels to...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude with Flush Mount Rails
  • I recommend going with a roof rack that uses the aero-style bars as they have less wind noise and drag compared to the traditional square or round bars. The exact roof rack parts will vary for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude depending on if you have the chrome track on your flush mount bars (also known as the E-Group package). If you do have the chrome piece (see attached photo) then I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex roof rack which uses Vortex Aero Bars # RRVA126B-2 for...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Dodge Durango
  • For your 2019 Dodge Durango I highly recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Roof Rack System. This roof rack consists of the two 54 inch Vortex Aero Aluminum Crossbars in Black # RRVA137B-2 or Silver # RRVA137S-2, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Custom DK Fit Kit # DK299. The reason I really like the Rhino-Rack systems is because they really match up well in quality to the higher-end brand systems but do it at a much friendlier level in terms of cost. These Vortex bars will provide...

  • Does Rhino Rack Roof Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Fit 2017 Ford Explorer with Flush Rails
  • What you are describing is a flush rail installed on the roof of your 2017 Ford Explorer. The Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA137S-2, # RRRCH4, and # RRRCP45-BK is confirmed as a fit for exactly what you described so this would fit and work well for you. I attached an install video for this rack on a similar Ford Explorer as yours for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Honda CR-V to Carry a Canoe
  • The roof rack I strongly recommend for your 2019 Honda CR-V is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack because it gives your CR-V a rack that is highly functional with a refined look. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack is made up of: - Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 (Black) OR # RRVA137S-2 (Silver) - Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA - Fit Kit # DK284. This roof rack uses aerodynamic bars that have rubber vortex strips in its top channels which greatly minimize the amount of wind noise and drag you might...

  • Installation of Rhino Rack Roof Rack on 2013 Ford C-Max
  • Although we do not have a video showing the roof rack being installed on a 2013 Ford C-Max, I did link an installation video for you to show how the Rhino Rack gets installed. Though not specific to your C-Max it does give you an idea of the process; I also linked installation instructions for you to check out. The entire roof rack for your C-Max consists of the Fit Kit # DK357 you referenced as well as 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 (Black) or # RRVA137S-2...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Infinity QX60 for Carrying Thule Hullavator
  • For your 2017 Infiniti QX60 with a naked roof the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA137S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK339 is a confirmed fit. This would work well with the Hullavator part # TH898 as well so it would be a great choice.

  • Can Replacement Roof Rack be Added to 2018 Infiniti QX60 That Already Has Factory Roof Rack
  • There are no aftermarket crossbars that will work on your 2018 Infiniti QX60 that already has a roof rack. The only way to add a roof rack is to have your entire factory roof rack assembly removed - the crossbars and rails - and convert your QX60's roof ro a naked roof. Only if you did that would you be able to utilize a roof rack, and there is one with 54 inch crossbars that would fit a 2018 Infiniti QX60 with a naked roof; the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars come in either Black #...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for 2012 Nissan Murano
  • I can help you get everything you need to carry a pair of kayaks on your 2012 Nissan Murano with a naked roof. Starting with the roof rack, I highly recommend the Rhino Rack Aero Roof Rack, which consists of Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA137S-2 as well as Mounting Legs # RRRLKVA and Custom DK Fit Kit # DK205. This is a high-quality rack that features aero bars to give you a quiet ride and the bars include locks to help prevent theft. To carry a 12' and 14' kayak I recommend the Yakima...

  • Best Aero Bar Roof Rack for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Black Plastic Roof Strips
  • We do have aero bar roof racks for your 2019 Grand Cherokee and I am glad to help. Since you have the black plastic strips on your roof (not the metal ones) you will use a fixed-point type of roof rack. The rack I suggest is the sleek black Vortex Aero system from Rhino-Rack. This rack features 54-inch black aero bars that will be quieter than all other bar shapes and that provide a cleaner OEM-like appearance. The rack system consists of parts # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK234. But...

  • Roof Rack Options for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with All Black Roof Rails
  • There are only two kinds of roof racks available for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee without the e-group rails. We have the style you said you don't care for which uses clamps to attach to the doors like the Rhino Rack # RRVA137S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK234 and we have the SeaSucker style which uses vacuum cups to attach to the roof like the part # 298-SX6100. See picture. I REALLY wish we had a rack that attached to the rails you have like you mentioned but at this time we do not.

  • Recommended Crossbars to Use on a 2015 Toyota RAV4 to Carry the Thule Hullavator Pro TH898
  • For the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 to properly fit on your 2015 Toyota RAV4 your crossbars will simply need to extend 4-8 inches beyond the feet of the roof rack. If your RAV4 has the raised side rails then the best option for you to go with would be the Thule WingBar system. This includes the WingBar Evo Crossbars, part # TH711400 for Silver or part # TH711420 for Black, and the Evo Feet # TH710401. This will give you enough clearance for the Hullavator. To lock the crossbars to...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Rhino Rack Platform Style Spare Tire Carrier on a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LT
  • The Rhino Rack Spare Tire Carrier # RPWC is designed to work with the T-track on the Rhino Rack HD roof rack system. I don't show there being a Rhino Rack roof rack fit for the HD system for your Tahoe, but I do have a solution for you. If your Chevy Tahoe has factory bars that run front to back of your vehicle then you can get the Rhino Rack # RRVA137B-2 aero crossbars and # RRSX100 foot pack. This will allow the Spare Tires Carrier # SPWC which is designed for aero bars, to mount...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2014 Infiniti QX60 with Naked Roof
  • For your 2014 Infiniti QX60 we have roof rack options. But none of them are for flush rails that run front to back. They are instead for raised rails or a totally naked roof. Can you send me a picture of your roof? Most likely yours would fall under the naked roof category and would require a rack like the Rhino Rack # RRVA137S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK339.

  • Roof Rack for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude With Side Rails
  • Thanks for the photo, it was really helpful. Your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude has what are considered side rails, though you do not have the E Group package; if you did the rails would have a metal strip on top. The roof rack I strongly recommend for your '`5 Grand Cherokee Altitude is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack because it gives your Jeep a rack that is highly functional with a refined look. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack is made up of Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 (Black) or # RRVA137S-2, Rhino-Rack...

  • Is the 110 lb Weight Capacity of the Rola Sport REX Series Roof Rack # 59684 for One or Both Bars
  • Thank you for all of the great information! All of the roof rack weight ratings, including the Rola Sport REX Series Roof Rack # 59684 that you referenced, are for both crossbars. This means that the Rola roof rack has a total weight capacity of 110 lbs. Since the roof weight rating of your 2015 Kia Sedona SXL could be the limiting factor it is always important to check your owner's manual. When I looked in an online version of the owner's manual for your Sedona I found on page 4-186...

  • Will Drilling into Roof to Install Roof Rack Affect 2016 Ford Transit Connect Air Bags
  • The Rhino-Rack tracks that fit your 2016 Ford Transit Connect passenger van, # RRRTS535, are meant to install in a specific location indicated in the instructions. Rhino-Rack has done test fits and has not found that installation of the roof rack interferes with the air bags in the van if installed according to the installation instructions. A link to the installation instructions is included on this page for reference.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Acura RDX with a Naked Roof
  • I'm glad you like our site. We work hard to make it easy to use. If I were choosing between Yakima and Rhino-Rack roof racks I would choose Rhino-Rack. The reason for this is because first, the Rhino-Rack roof racks tend to cost less, and second, the Yakima round bars are among the most noisy roof racks available. With any rack there is going to be some noise but the elliptical bars on the Rhino-Rack roof racks would not be as noisy as the Yakima round bars. For Rhino-Rack you have...

  • Height of Rhino Rack Roof Rack for 2005 Ford Excursion

The # RRRLT600 legs are 3" high and the accompanying bars which make up the roof rack on an '05 Excursion, the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 (Black) or # RRVA137S-2 (Silver) are 1-3/16" tall so the total height will be 4-3/16".

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Acura MDX

You also need the legs # RRRLKVA and fit kit # DK400. The Rhino-Rack is a good aerodynamic system that reduces wind noise, looks nice, and doesn't break the bank. It includes locks in the legs and plastic locks in the bars that can be upgraded to metal using part # RRVA-LEC4. I've attached a link of a video...

  • Weight Capacity of Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack for 2014 BMW X5 # RRVA137S-2 and # RRSX024
  • Roof rack manufacturers like Rhino-Rack design racks that will fit more than one vehicle and naturally there are variances in how much weight any given vehicle can handle. In the case of the 2014 BMW X5 the maximum safe weight load for the rack consisting of parts # RRVA137S-2 and # RRSX024 is 165-lbs, unless your owner's manual or dealership advise otherwise. In another application on a different vehicle this rack may be rated for more weight, but in any case the lowest-rated item in a...

  • Roof Rack for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee without E Group Flush Rails
  • Thule used to have a fit for your style of non-E-group roof rails but at this time they do not have anything. Best option we have is the Rhino Rack Aero Bar roof rack part numbers # RRVA137S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK234 which fits to the outsides of your flush rails more like a naked roof fit. I attached an install video for this on a similar Jeep for you to check out. The bars are square but the feet are the same.

  • Measurement of Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars to Determine if Longer Bars Can be Used

The same measurement on the 54 inch bars, part # RRVA137S-2, is about 775 millimeters (or 30-1/2 inches). The tracks that slide onto the legs are the same on both bars. They're about 298 millimeters (or 11-3/4 inches). You should be able to measure across your vehicle's roof from where the legs fit to determine if...
