Review from a similar Rhino Rack RTC in Roof Rack


Rhino-Rack Rails work great. Put them on a truck topper to work with a Rhino Rack cross rails system. Easy to install and they are secure. You will need to apply extra silicone or caulk when drilling holes through the topper as the rubber washers on the bolts don't quite stop all leaks. Don't forget that fiberglass truck toppers need to be reinforced to support extra weight. 629271

Excellent design and manufacturing quality. Etrailer has installation videos on youtube. Modern fiberglas truck beds and matching caps taper toward tailgate (for rearward visibility) which means the rail/crossbar will be a trapezoid instead of a rectangle. The butyl patches are messy but effective, better to place on T-bolts and mold below o-ring instead of placing on holes in cap. The M6 T-bolt protudes past knobnut inside cap enough to thread on eyenuts for hanging cargo hammock and whatever. Was pricey to get 71” rails with 59” crossbars, had to order separately, not sure why the price penalty since all parts pull from Colorado under different skus anyway. 649275

Review from a similar Rhino Rack RTC in Roof Rack


The price is right, and the product appears generally well-engineered. I'd be reluctant to label it as "heavy duty" however (as Rhino does), since they are made of extruded aluminum, and each tower is mounted by just two small square washers gripping the rails. Although the mounting hardware itself is sturdy stainless steel, I question the sturdiness of the rails themselves under a heavy load. Unfortunately, the competition likewise only makes aluminum rails, so the industry as a whole appears to have a very different concept of sturdy than I do. (I could have sworn they are described as steel when I ordered them, but I may be wrong about that). 152193

Review from a similar Rhino Rack RTC in Roof Rack


I mounted these rails in a non-traditional manner (on top of my truck bed caps so that I could crossbars that spanned over my existing tonneau cover). No one I talked with had actually done this type of installation before. The only problems I ran into were: 1) I had to cut the rails approximately 1/2 inch to ensure the through-bolts did not interfere with existing cap hardware, and; 2) The "Nyloc Nuts" were too wide to use so I just substituted a nut, lock washer and flat washer to compensate. Other than that, the installation took a while but came out great. And the RRRL T600 feet work perfectly with the rails. See the attached photo for the complete installation (with bikes attached) and a second photo with the rack removed by using the quick release feet. 595125

Review from a similar Rhino Rack RTC in Roof Rack


I installed the Rhino rails, and really like them. The install was easy, and the rail are low profile, and have almost no wind resistance. The instructions that came with them are for a Jeep TJ, but I have a JK, and didn't notice until I started drilling and hit a metal cross member. They work fine on a JK, but make your own measurements so the holes don't go into cross members. I also had to temporarily lower the speaker bar so I could put the hold-down nuts on. 518094

  • Recommended Rhino-Rack Complete Roof Rack System for Snug Top Truck Camper Shell Bed Cap
  • Rhino-Rack does have a complete kit with shorter crossbars that still have the tracks for your truck cap. It is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars - Track Mount - Black - 54" Long # Y02-480B. If you want shorter bars than that, there is not a kit but you can create the same thing with individual parts. You can use the Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks - Channel Mount - 63" Long - Qty 2 # RTC16, the legs # RRRLT600, and then add the bar length you desire. You...

  • Can Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks Install at an Angle?
  • The Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks # RTC14 do need to lay flat. There cannot be an angle because that would cause an undue amount of stress on your camper shell, the tracks, and the legs. To safely and effectively use the rack you are going to need to do it so the tracks are laid down flat or they could very easily snap off or come apart because they'll be constantly flexed.

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System That Will Fit 66 Inch Wide Truck Bed
  • We do have a solution for you that will work with your 66 inch wide truck bed, but the 65" crossbars of the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars - Track Mount # Y02-500B will not be long enough to fit the width of your truck's 66" bed. Instead, what you can do is purchase the parts of this roof rack individually, along with longer crossbars.

  • Will the Rhino Rack Tracks Work with Yakima Control Towers and What Is the Length of Mounting Bolts
  • The 63 inch Rhino Rack RTC Style Roof Rack Tracks, # RTC16, come with 8 T-bolts for each track, 16 total, and each T-bolt measures 1 inch long. Although manufacturers typically do not recommend using another company's towers on their track, I went to our warehouse and pulled a set of the RT Style Rhino Roof Tracks and the Yakima Landing Pad1, #Y00221 to perform a test fit to ensure compatibility. All parts performed just as they should so yes, the Rhino Rack RTC Style Tracks will work...

  • No-Drill Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Quad Cab
  • We have roof racks like the Yakima CoreBar rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y00146, and # Y06122 which are a confirmed fit for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 quad cab and do not require drilling into the roof at all. This rack actually clamps around the top of the door frame and does not require any permanent modification.

  • Would Two Sets of Rhino Rack Heavy Duty Bars Double Roof Rack Capacity
  • You would be doubling the weight capacity of the roof rack components of the setup but most likely you'd be limited by the roof capacity as the HD Rhino Rack roof rack components do have a capacity of 220 lbs. You'd need a set of tracks like the part # RTC16, two sets of the feet part # RLT500-2, and two sets of the 65 inch Rhino Rack bars part # RB1650B-2.

  • Would Thule Tracker Fit Kits Fit in Rhino Rack Track RTC15

  • Can Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Be Cut to Size
  • It is possible to cut the Rhino-Rack crossbars but I do not recommend this as it will certainly void the warranty. Since we offer Rhino-Rack's Vortex Aero bars in various lengths you can simply choose the individual parts you prefer to make up your rack in the dimensions you prefer. Since you want to end up with bars that are about 44-inches long I suggest part # RRVA118S-2. This is a set of silver Vortex Aero bars that come in that 44-inch size. With these you can use the 63-inch tracks...

  • Parts Needed to Adapt Yakima Crossbars to a Rhino Rack 63 inch Rail System
  • Though manufacturers tend to recommend against using another company's towers on their track, there are occasional fits for cross-brand uses. In this case, you'll be able to use the Yakima LaunchPad 1, part # Y00221, in the Rhino Rack 63 inch rail, part # RTC16. I've included a picture of the two working in perfect harmony with each other. These pads include caps for when the rails are not in use to protect the inner workings of the LaunchPads. From there, you'll just need a set...

  • Availability of Roof Rack Crossbars for Use on 2015 Jayco Pop-Up Camper With Factory Side Rails
  • To date Thule has not developed any custom-fit roof rack crossbars for use on specific campers. My contact at Thule did confirm that he knows of no plans to develop a custom-fit rack system to fit your Jayco's roof rails. It is likely that at least for the short-term only Jayco will offer crossbars intended for the side rails installed on their campers. We do, however, offer free-standing camper roof rack systems. An example is the SportRack # SR1020 (SportRack is part of the Thule...

  • Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-150 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • For your 2016 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot bed the BAK Revolver X2 part # BAK39329 is a fit and can be installed with a ladder rack but there's only one ladder rack that is compatible. We can't recommend trying to modify the Rhino Rack RTC rack you mentioned. The ladder rack you'd need is the Thule TracRac SR part # TH43002XT-508. The reason these two fit together is because the TracRac installs by mounting through the top of the bed rails through the stake pockets and the BAK mounts to the...

  • Roof Rack System for ATC Truck Bed Caps
  • According to my research, the ATC truck bed caps used Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks like part # RTC16. Therefore, I recommend taking a look at the Heavy-Duty Crossbar System part # RLT500-2 and part # RB1500B-2. The heavy-duty cross bars have a 220 lb weight capacity which is far superior to other rooftop mounted crossbars. However, the increased weight capacity means the crossbar is physically bigger which limits the amount of available accessories that can be attached to them.

  • Availability of Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 71" Heavy-Duty Square Crossbars
  • I can definitely help you with the same type of setup as part # Y01-140B but currently there aren't any kits that use the 71" Rhino-Rack Heavy Duty crossbars. The parts that you will need are the Rhino-Rack 71" Heavy-Duty Roof Rack Crossbars # RB1800B-2, the Quick Mount Legs # RRRLT600, and the RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks # RTC16.

  • Rhino-Rack Track Mount System for Bed Rails of 2019 Chevy Silverado with Longer Crossbars
  • Obtaining the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-500B with longer crossbars is just a matter of piecing out the system into its individual components. You will just need the Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Tracks # RTC16 that install on top of the bed rails, the Quick Mount Legs # RRRLT600, and the longer 71" Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA180B-2. This will give you the same exact system that you mentioned but with the longer crossbars to reach across the bed of your Silverado.
