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 - 2018 Ford F-150

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F150 we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Rhino Rack Roof Rack System. This is going to consist of the Rhino Rack Vortex Arrow Crossbars, part number RRVA150B-2, the Rhino Rack 2500 Series Legs, part number RRRLKVA, and the Fit Kit for our F150, part number DK427. Now, keep in mind that our crossbars are also available in silver with part number RRVA150S-2The Rhino Rack Roof Rack System gives us an opportunity to carry more gear inside our truck bed as well as on our roof, whether those are bike racks, ski and snowboard carriers, or kayak carriers. The aerodynamic shape of our crossbars is going to help to reduce wind noise and drag. On our crossbar end cap you'll see we have this plastic lock core here. This does lock, but you can replace those with metal lock cores, which will add more safety and security.

We'll remove that, and you'll see our weather strip here on the inside. This can be removed and cut down, and replaced with channel mounted accessories.The leg kit of our roof rack system comes with a metal lock core, which is going to help prevent theft and tampering of your roof rack system altogether. Our Rhino Rack Fit Kit is going to be custom cut and made for our vehicle to give us a nice, secure fit. Any portion that touches our vehicle is going to have a rubber coating to prevent any scratches or abrasions. The Rhino Rack Roof Rack System has a 165 pound weight capacity, though you do want to double check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure your roof can withstand that much weight.

It's also going to come with a limited lifetime warranty, and be easy to install. We'll show you how to do that now.Everything that you see on our table is what we will need to install our roof rack system. We already have our front bar and half of our back bar installed, but we'll show you how to do the other half. We're going to provide our own flat tape measure, but everything else will be included. We've got our crossbar here, the end cap for our crossbar with the included key.

We'll have our leg kit with the included key to lock down our end caps. We've got each piece of our fit kit; the pad, and the clamp, and then our included tool to tighten everything down.We're going to start by removing our bolt here on our leg. Take our clamp, we're going to replace it over the top, and we'll tighten down our bolt to hold our clamp into place. We want to tighten this down just enough so that it holds our clamp. We don't want it too tight, because that can mess up putting it onto our roof.

With that tightened down, we can remove the bottom piece. We'll take the rubber pad here on the bottom, and we're just going to squeeze that together. Once that's all together, we can place it back onto our leg.With our leg kit assembled, we'll place this onto our crossbar. Now we'll measure out our placement for our leg kit. It's going to be about 16.6 centimeters. That measurement will be in your instructions, and we're just going to take our included tool and tighten down our bolt here. That's going to hold our leg kit in place. To finish off the assembly, we'll place on our end cap and lock them into place.Now we're ready to open up our vehicle doors and load up our crossbar. We'll gently place it on the roof of our vehicle. We want to make sure that the hook goes around our door. Now we can measure from the inside doorjam to the middle of our clamp. That's going to be 52 centimeters. This will give us our placement for our crossbar. We'll do the same thing to the other side.Now we'll tighten down our bolt here using our included tool. We want start so that it sits just up against our door frame. We'll do the same thing to the other side. Now, we want to tighten our bolt down until the skinner portion of our torque tool is completely straight, just like you see there. We'll finish off by placing on our end cap for our foot pack. Now that we have our roof rack system completely tightened down, we're ready to load up our accessories and hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Rhino Rack Roof Rack System on our 2018 Ford F150.

Looked for a roof rack for my ram 3500. Found it here and was a perfect fit and a breeze to install. 517156



- RRVA150S-2
by:

The racks look great and are solidly anchored. I have yet to use them under load but I am pleased with the final product so far. My only complaint was that the assembly process is difficult to understand unless you Google the help videos. The assembly process is confusing and tedious until you gain an understanding of the overall setup. 413891

2016 Ram 1500

The rhino rack is well made but suffers from the flat bottom rubber feet. Since nearly all cars and trucks have roof seams, foot pads should be stepped to engage the seam like other racks such as Thule does. It's unlikely that very many different shapes would be needed to fit most vehicles. Rhino tech didn't agree with my assessment. 420713


Comments

Rack is working out very well. My issue with the flat rubber pads really cant be resolved because the seams on the Ram arent deep enough to allow a stepped pad. Ive also had a problem with the filler rubber strips coming out when sliding boats on. Overall, its a very good rack.

Great product and excellent service. I had originally ordered the Thule rack for my truck. I had it down between the Thule and the Rhino. Long story short could not get the Thule. etrailer worked with me no problems and I said I would take the Rhino. Delivery was quicker then they had said and package came perfectly packaged. Installed the racks on my Ram crew cab and carried 3 kayaks 300 miles. The rack did great and fits well. Don't spend more than you have to. 292600

Love the way these look on my Ford Flex. Went together easily despite me trying to screw it up by not reading the correct measurements for the spacing strips. Be sure if you order the Vortex Aero to refer to the VA column rather than the Aero column. I cut all of the strips too short and had to cut a patch strip for each one. It would be nice if the instructions referred to these as Voertex aero rather than VA. All is well and they are still on the car. Haven't hauled anything on them yet but from the way they feel they will have no problem carrying bulky loads. 186289

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

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

Cross bars are great! Easy install. Except for the little plastic strips that go under and between mounts. They can be a bear to measure and install properly,but definitely need to go on to avoid any whistle noise. Just gotta say what a great experience it is dealing with etrailer. Rep, Kelly was very helpful in part selection and order processing. I will most assuredly use etrailer again for my next Jeep accessories purchase. 258541

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

I was looking for a good looking product to carry my two kayaks with our camper. the product arrived in the time they said it would and was packed very well. after reading other reviews on assembly it was suggested that you read the directions first. after reading the directions I couldn't find some rubber strips so I called you company and they were very friendly and helpful and I found them I just didn't look in the right place. then started to assembly the roof racks and within 25 min. they were installed. would recommend the product and company. 411346

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

Please see my review about the Rhino Rack Legs for these Aero Crossbars. They work great! Very little noise, if any at all. My only issue was the lack of documentation. I had to figure out how to get the end caps off myself (and if I didn't have the legs, which came with a "key", I wouldn't have been able to get the end caps off because the "key" is stored within the runner of the Crossbars). Anyway, so far, these have worked great. I put a Rola roof carrier on them. So far, it's holding up well. We're taking them on a trip from Charlotte to several places in Michigan the week of 4th of July. They'll all get a good workout then. 265337

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Product is installed on 2015 GMC Sierra extended cab with a fiberglass A.R.E. bed cap (6.5' bed). System works well and the bars are strong and solid. The cross-bars and risers can be removed quickly and easily (with the proper key) leaving only the pads clamped in place on the rails. Cross-bars and risers can be installed on the pads very quickly. Installation was straightforward and easy, except for the rubber strips that fill the grooves in the crossbars - those were the most difficult part of the installation - to get those to seat correctly (so I lowered rating by 1 star). 545668

So far so good. The Aero 2500 racks went on in a couple of hours as I was not in a rush, wanted to do it properly and understand all I needed to to remove and reinstall these in the future. I did manage to get the Rhinorack logo facing backward on the front and forward on the back. Sorry, didn’t intend to but I’m not going to reverse them at this point. I did not take pics of these on my 2017 Prius. But they look good, less clunky than my old square Thule racks. 512463

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


These crossbars were easy to install, are sturdy when installed and look great on my factory side rails when installed with the SX Series legs. The standard end caps are an all-plastic affair and use a little key to engage a cam lock. That plus the distance from the end of the crossbar to the nut that tightens the foot onto the rail keeps things relatively secure. Most people probably want to opt for proper locking end caps, though. The rubber vortex strips look nice and give items something grippy to rest on. I haven't tried a load test yet but did drive around in moderate wind on the highway in multiple directions. Other than a slight whistle at 70 mph, you'd never know they were there. Overall, real happy with the product and looking forward to hauling some stuff around with them. 248807

Product was just as described. Instructions were very hard to read because they look like a copy of a copy and many of the pictures were very faded, but once you decipher them, installing the roof rack was pretty simple. It seems to be pretty sturdy and now I just need to start shopping for all of the attachments! 184747

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I love my Rhino Vortex roof racks. They look great, are sturdy, and there is no wind noise up to 70 mph (haven't been on the freeway yet). eTrailer was great and made the proper component selection easy. Now, the -1 star... The instructions provided by Rhino were horrible or non-existent. The cross bar literally had no instructions and I couldn't even find them for my model online. Between being a handy guy and watching other Rhino videos on YouTube, I figure it out. Maybe most people have professional installers put them on. 375802

Love the Rhino rack! Sometimes I think I could stand the truck Grand Cherokee upside down on it! It was a little tricky to install, but once I found YouTube vids I was good to go.

Easy to read instructions, easy to install. Watched the install video a few times just to be sure! They do whistle a bit at highway speeds, but certainly not unbearable. In fact, I was surprised as to how quiet they are. It's to be expected, especially when paired with kayak j-racks. So happy with this purchase and I would definitely recommend them! 559818

Fairly easy to install onto my 2017 Honda CR-V. The crossbars feel very sturdy and are securely attached to the vehicle. Took me about 30 minutes to get it installed and could be done even quicker if you get help from another person. The bars themselves are a little fat so my Thule ski rack has a super tight fit. There is very minimal wind noise, so I'll probably be getting a fairing for that. The instructions felt a bit jumbled but with just the measurements alone, you can install it with a bit of common sense. 590932

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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

I love the product. The only thing that I was unclear about at the time of purchase was that the additional adjustable bars weren’t included as a set. I have yet to purchase those and would like to get a quote on the best price possible for those. Thanks for all your help with this. 545782

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

As usual etrailer had the parts in stock with an excellent price point. My wife loves her roof rack for her SUP. Also shipping was extremely fast. I always check etrailer first. 400689

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Ram 1500 Crew Cab for Carrying Paddleboard
  • Most popular roof rack option we have for your 2016 Ram 1500 is the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA150S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK043 which is a confirmed fit that will give you a set of aero shaped bars. Then for a paddleboard carrier we have the Rhino Rack SUP part # RRRWP04 which will fit these bars and work well for your 12 foot paddleboard.

  • Recommended Way to Carry a Kayak for a Ford F-150
  • As long as you have a 2 inch receiver on your 2016 Ford F-150, I recommend the Thule Goalpost # TH997. This is one of our better options for kayak carriers and installs directly into your hitch. In addition to this carrier I recommend using a roof rack to secure your kayak to the roof of your truck instead of the foam blocks. If you have the SuperCrew Cab, the Rhino Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack kit is a great option. This include the Crossbars # RRVA150S-2, the Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Fit...

  • Rhino Rack Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Nissan Titan XD
  • Rhino Rack has a confirmed roof rack solution for your 2017 Nissan Titan XD but they do not offer replacement fit kits for the older style of rack you currently have. Instead you would need to go with the part numbers # RRVA150S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK468 which is a confirmed fit.

  • Recommended Roof Rack & Roof Bike Carriers for Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab
  • We can help you with a cost-effective roof rack for the cab of your 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab. All roof racks for your truck configuration are shown on the linked page. Since 4 bikes could easily reach the weight limit of your cab roof and/or of the roof rack you select I urge you to consider the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero rack which uses elliptical crossbars that provide a 165-lb capacity. You can choose a black bar rack, parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK190, or for a silver...

  • Measurement of Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars to Determine if Longer Bars Can be Used
  • The metal strip between the tracks that slide onto the legs of the 59 inch Rhino-Rack Vortex crossbars, part # RRVA150S-2, is about 902 millimeters (or 35-1/2 inches). 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...

  • Parts Needed to Add a Roof Rack on a 2018 Honda Ridgeline
  • If you would like to stick with the Thule theme that you have going then I recommend using a Thule roof rack system that uses the AeroBlade bars. For your 2018 Honda Ridgeline you will need 60" crossbars which is part # TH711500 for Silver or part # TH711520 for Black along with the Rapid Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R, and the Fit Kit # THKIT1811. The WingBar Evo bars have an aerodynamic design that cuts down on wind noise and drag compared to traditional bars. If you prefer the more...

  • Aero Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for 2019 Toyota Tundra
  • A quieter aero-style type roof rack is a good choice for your 2019 Tundra and we have options in this type for both the Tundra CrewMax and Double cabs. My favorite is the Rhino-Rack Vortex system, which is both one of the better designs and one of the better values in a quality aero-style roof rack. For a black roof rack use parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK079. This setup fits both cab styles. The 59-inch bars have rubber strips to reduce wind noise and these can be removed to...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Multi-Kayak Carrier for 2016 Toyota Tundra
  • The best way to transport 2 to 3 kayaks on your 2016 Toyota Tundra Crew Max cab short-bed, without using a ladder rack, is to install a roof rack on the cab and use a single multi-kayak carrier. Of all roof racks made for your Crew Max, shown on the linked page, I suggest the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero rack made of parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK079. This rack uses quieter aero-style bars and offers a 165-lb weight capacity for your kayaks. If you prefer silver bars instead of black...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Extender and Roof Rack For 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • To use an extending rack like the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender - 2" Hitches - 350 lbs, # MT70231, will allow you to carry the ladders, kayaks, or whatever else extends from your roof past the bed of your truck. For the roof rack you mentioned, I recommend the Rhino Rack system. All roof racks come with 2 crossbars, so I suggest using both instead of just one to better protect your roof. This rack uses # RRVA150S-2 crossbars, the legs will be the # RRRLKVA, and...

  • Roof Rack Solution for Transporting Long Lumber on 2009 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Rhino-Rack roof rack that you referenced, the Vortex Aero system for naked roofs consisting of parts # RRVA150S-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK155, is an excellent (and quiet) roof rack system for your 2009 Honda Ridgeline. All the racks for your truck will have a crossbar spread of 29-1/2-inches centered on your roof and all can be seen on the link provided. For transporting lumber loads as long as 16-feet I suggest you use a roof rack combined with a hitch-mounted load support such as the...

  • Carrying a 12.5 foot Inflatable Fishing Raft on a 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab with Camper Shell
  • For a roof rack to install on the Leer camper shell of your 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab I recommend the TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack # TH29200XT. Since it installs on your camper there is some drilling required which will make it more of a permanent installation, but it will provide a great rack that has a weight limit that is the same as your camper. A roof rack on your Mega Cab might not be necessary since you are planning on using the Yakima LongArm # Y01149-1150, but if you decide to I...

  • Recommended Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for 2015 Audi Q7 for Transporting 4 Kayaks
  • The Rhino-Rack Vortex rack system for your 2015 Audi Q7 that consists of parts # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX027 features black 49-inch aero crossbars. If you prefer you can substitute the longer 59-inch silver Vortex bars, part # RRVA150S-2, but note that they may stick out beyond the edges of the roof line. An install video is linked for you. The Thule Stacker kayak carrier # TH830 will fit these aero style bars. Since you're intending to carry 4 kayaks on your 2015 Audi Q7 I suggest you...

  • Does a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Using Factory Mounting Points on a 2013 Honda Ridgeline
  • Rhino-Rack Leg Kit, # RRRLKVA, mounts to the roof of your 2013 Honda Ridgeline using fit kit # DK155 which are clamps so it will not use the factory mounting points. The correct bars for this application are # RRVA150S-2. All of the roof racks install the same way on your Ridgeline.

  • Can 2 Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carriers be Used on a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • We do have a few ways to carry your kayaks with your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser but since the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 requires that the roof rack have a weight capacity of 130 lbs and crossbars that hang over the legs by 4" - 8" we unfortunately don't have a setup for you to use the Hullavator Pro. Instead what you can use is the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD which allows you to use the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module # MPG351XL. This doesn't use gas struts like the Hullavator...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2007 Ford F-150 SuperCab
  • While there is a very good roof rack option for your 2007 Ford F-150 SuperCab, there is not a confirmed fit from Yakima. Instead, the rack I highly recommend for your 4-door SuperCab is from Rhino-Rack because it will give your '07 F-150 a rack that is highly functional and durable while being more economical than other high-quality roof racks. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for your truck is made up of the following parts: - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 (Black) or...

  • Roof Rack for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with Bare Roof
  • Rhino-Rack offers a number of rack options that will fit well on your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder that has a bare roof. All of these appear on the linked page. My recommendation is their black Vortex rack which is made of parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK407. This rack features the quieter aero-style of crossbar, in this case 59-inch bars, that make less wind noise. These also offer flexible mounting for accessories like bike or kayak racks since they accept both the standard clamp-around...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport Hard Top Compatible with Rola Roof Cargo Basket
  • The Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket - Steel - 52" Long x 40-1/2" Wide x 6" Deep - 130 lbs # 59504 is compatible with most roof racks, but the spacing between the bars is specific. The center to center measurements of the crossbars must be: 26-1/4", 30", 33-3/4", or 37-1/2". To get the most cost efficient system that will support this rack and give you the spacing necessary, I recommend the Rhino Rack Roof Rack consisting of: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Silver - 59"...

  • Availability of 57 Inch Aero Bars for Roof Rack on 2013 BMW X1 with Flush Mounted Rails
  • The longest aero style load bars our manufacturers recommend with your vehicle are 49 inches as in the Rhino Rack roof rack system, parts # RRVA126S-2, # RRSX033. You could substitute the 49 inch Aerobars, part # RRVA126S-2, for a pair of 59 inch Aerobars like # RRVA150S-2. However, we do not recommend you use crossbars that extend out farther than the widest part of your vehicle, which is usually the mirrors.

  • Roof Rack for 2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD Double Cab
  • The track-mounted Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-500 does need to use the included T-bolts to install; it has not been tested with rivets so there isn't a way to confirm fit or durability with a different installation method. That said, this rack system was designed for camper shells and I do not recommend putting it on the roof of your 2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD double cab. The good news is there is a roof rack system that will work which does not require drilling holes on top of your truck's...

  • Trimming Rubber Channel In Bottom Of Vortex Aero Crossbars For Roof Rack
  • I called my contact at Rhino Rack and asked about trimming the rub er strip you asked about on the 2500 bars. They told me if it says to cut 135mm, then you just need to cut at the 135mm mark and you should not worry about measuring 135 from the end with the excess 1/8 inch of material.

  • Roof Rack to Carry 2 Kayaks on the Roof of a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500
  • You will be able to carry 2 kayaks on the roof of your 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 if it is a Crew Cab or Double Cab by installing a roof rack. I recommend Rhino-Rack roof rack using # RRVA150S-2 for the bars, # RRRLKVA for the feet, and # DK377 for the custom clamp kit. Then you can use kayak carrier # S512 which holds 1 kayak and then add # RRS512X which will allow you to carry a second kayak. If you have a regular cab or don't want to use a roof rack then another option for all 4 kayaks...

  • Will Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # RR576 Fit 2019 Chevy Suburban
  • The Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # RR576 referenced in your question is designed to mount to most roof rack crossbars on the market. If your 2019 Chevy Suburban is equipped with a factory roof rack (with bars that run across the roof) then you are good to go and this carrier will work perfectly. Looking at pictures of the factory racks on the Suburban I don't foresee the need for any spacers unless your boards have uniquely tall bindings. This is a really nice carrier that features...

  • Best Roof Rack System for a 2014 Ford F150 Platinum SuperCrew Cab
  • For your application I recommend going with a Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack. If you only plan on using the roof rack for your 2014 Ford F-150 Platinum SuperCrew Cab to carry your fishing rod tube then the best looking option is either part # RRRS446 which is Silver or part # RRRS446B which is Black. I like these roof rack choices because they have a very clean OEM look. Instead of having the crossbars mounted on top of the legs they are connected to the legs directly. Since adding...

  • Interchanging Rhino Rack Aero Bars for a 2016 Nissan Pathfinder and 2016 Nissan Rogue Roof Rack
  • The 59 inch aluminum aero bars, part # RRVA1502S-2 and the 49 inch aluminum aero bars, part # RRVA126S-2 are both valid options for an interchangeable kit between the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder and Rogue. I think that over time you'll appreciate the 59 inch bars more than the optional 49 inch bars because they will fit better on the Pathfinder's bigger frame, even if its a little goofy on the Rogue. You'll need the 2500 Series Legs, part # RRRLKVA, which will be interchangeable between...
