I am extremely pleased with this product and the etrailer.com. I would definitely purchase this item again and will look to etrailer.com for future purchases. The item arrived quickly and completely as described. The pictures and videos provided on the website ensured I got exactly what I wanted and helped guide the install. My only critique is I received three different installation manuals and didn't realize at first they were for different products. They were very similar so I didn't notice the difference prior to drilling the holes in my topper. Thankfully I did notice prior to creating any major problems, but I ended up adding a few more bolts than my application required (which means more holes drilled in my topper) and it was in metric instead of standard (should have been my first clue). I'm not sure why I received installation manuals for other material, so just take minute to make sure you're referencing the correct one. Additionally, measure multiple times, drill ONCE! I was very nervous to drill holes in my topper so I must have measured 6 or 7 times. I finally just had to go for it. The painters tape was very important for measuring and aligning and prevented my drill bit from sliding. I also used a brand new multipurpose drill bit.

The Rhino rack track system is engineered perfectly. Installed on a 2006 f150 crew cab. The only complaint I have is with Snugtop. They install a soft reinforced cardboard center on the underside of the topper that makes the Rhino tracks install on a curved surface. Very pleased with the install. You will need 2 people for the install. Don't attempt alone. P.S The 1st order was damaged during shipping and Alex at customer service was able to get us a comparable setup in the time frame needed. Customer service goes a long way. I will be ordering from etrailer in the future.

I found it easier to install by assembling entirely and making measurement adjustments based on fit. The rack is fantastic in design, all screws and bolts are hidden. Easy to pop off the bars for car washes etc. Ram caps are not square, they are tapered so I think bolting everything up and adjusting your measurements is a simple way to make sure that you have a good fit. I used painters tape and a sharpie on the topper; isopropyl alcohol takes off the sharpie ink. I also use construction flexible adhesive / sealant over the bolt holes to try to minimize water intrusion and protect the substrate of the fiberglass cap.

Nice product. Installed on a camper shell for a Chevy 2500. I like the looks of this product. Assembly was ok. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it came with 3 different sets of instructions and they weren’t written very well. Just be careful on the part where it tells to to map out the holes to be drilled. Look at how many T-bolts you have and space accordingly. Other than that I am very happy.

The main challenge is all measurements are in metric. COOL product, it takes some thinking and blue masking tape to make things go smooth. Awesome canoe rack!

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


This review is for the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Aluminum-Silver crossbars and associated legs and custom fit kit (RRVA137s-2, DK284, RRRLKVA) necessary for a naked roof installation on a 2018 Honda CR-V. Just enter the model and year of your vehicle and etrailers website will tell you exactly what additional items are necessary to complete the install. etrailers installation instructions and videos are very helpful. The installation document provided is for more than one vehicle and for more than one style rack, so take your time to understand witch measurements apply to your installation and refer to the installation video if necessary. ON that note: The measurements given for front rack did not fit as nicely on the roof as the rear rack, I adjusted the the front rack measurements slightly. I would suggest trial fitting on your vehicle before cutting the metric rulers to final length. Stick On tags are supplied to indicate front, rear and the location to install on your vehicle. Once the rails are adjusted and tagged you can remove and reinstall the racks very quickly. Korren was very helpful in keeping me informed as to availability of items in stock and email shipping tracking. I am very satisfied with etrailers customer service and happy with the appearance and functionality of the Rhino racks.


Comments
I am still very satisfied after a year of using the Rhino-Rack. I have used it about 8 times transporting my kayak with no issues. The longest trip was about 45 miles, part of it was interstate driving at 75 mph. Stays tight on the roof with very slight wind noise.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I purchased the complete 2500 Series system which included the crossbars, legs and fit kit for my 2018 Honda Fit so I could transport my kayak.. They were well packaged and their quality is quite evident. I did struggle a little following the assembly instructions but with some patience and watching a video it went well. Two items to be aware of. The front and rear leg clamps are of different lengths with the longer clamps going on the rear crossbar. The other issue was positioning the crossbars. After following the measurements for attaching the legs to the crossbars it was quite clear that the measurement for the rear crossbar was wrong. Placing the legs as instructed didn't allow the rear crossbars to be the 29 17/32 inches from the front crossbar but required me to move it back to 31 1/2 inches. There is a very faint whistle while driving around 30 to 35 mph but it's not annoying. I was so pleased with the fit and finish I went ahead and purchased the Rhino Rack S-loader to make it easier for me to lift my kayak onto the crossbars. I would definitely recommend both items.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I give all 5 stars for the product and service, but...I prefer the parts to be all in one carboard, also I was a little panicking looking for blue plastic key...It was inside of cross-bar ??not falling out with strips. Anyway, I"m owner of Honda cr-v 2022 with bare roof ,and I just installed the rack. Was it simple enough? Yes,so I can share this: First, rubber pads are all the same, and after placements to plastic legs should be placed with arrow*out*-that is it(a lot of info regarding vertical parts, that they are all different)?? Second, on other hand, in video we informed that clamps are same -they are not. Bigger "hooks" are for rear bar, smaller ones-for the front one. Third, do not expect precision in rubber pads position(especially on rear bar)regarding plastic rail strips on bare roof.it is not achievable, just try to make same look on both sides. I was worried about rain and water gets inside. Well, let us see. What I plan to care on rack? Just a small 6ft step ladder. Believe me or no CR-V is my business vehicle ,and ladder carry was the goal of rack purchase. And only question I have if I can get to underground parking with no problems to cross the front entries usually limited with 6 ft in heights I will find out soon, but rack height plus ladder on it makes me worry.??The review will be update soon. regards.


Comments
Thank you for your review on the installation of your rack. If the garage has a clearance of 6 feet, you will not be able to park there with your CR-V with the rack on. The CR-V itself is 5.5 feet tall.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


At first I didn’t know how to get the end pieces off because I thought it was locked and didn’t know where the key was. After pulling one of the ends pieces off, I saw that the blue key was inside the crossbar next to the measuring strips. Took me a minute but figured that part out, but the instructions were easy to follow. Can’t wait to test it out on my Kayaks! I have this installed on my Toyota Corolla LE 2013.


Comments
This has endeared Mn winters and transporting kayaks back and forth from lakes and cabins and it still looks good! I highly recommend the investment!

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I posted a detailed review with photos in my fit kit review by Anthony. If your thinking of getting a rack system this is the one to get and etrailer is the place to get it. This is a fabulous design. Strong and aerodynamic.


Comments
Ive used the rack to transport my boat numerous times. the rack is as strong as I hoped. Ive traveled maybe 70mph with no issue. Ive read how people had trouble with racks tearing off their vehicle. Ill say that this is the owners fault because they misjudge the strength of wind at highway speed . I secure my boat to the rack so it cant shift and then cargo strap it to the vehicle tow hooks or chassis so there is downward pressure on the rack. As a note- always remember to periodically check the screws on the legs for proper tension.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


This roof rack works great! At first I was skeptical about putting a rack on my IS250, but it couldn't have turned out better. Paired with the Yakima Highroad, I can easily transport my bikes around without worrying about anything coming loose while driving. The installation instructions for the legs and bars are pretty straightforward. Takes about 30-45 minutes total to install.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I purchased the Rhino legs, cross bars and J-style kaya carriers together and could not be more pleased with the combination. The system was installed in an evening and used the next day. Assembly and installation was easy. The most difficult part was getting an even extension from the legs on both sides of the vehicle. I put a vortex strip with the ruler in each side to adjust and then tightened the screws. This set the back part of the leg in place which made installing the strips on the bottom easy as well. With strips filling all the gaps in the cross bar there is no wind noise at all.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Overall unimpressed. Item took nearly a month to arrive from eTrailer despite being in-stock and an estimated delivery time of two days at checkout. The rack looks good but the leg locking bars are made of plastic, not sure why for the price. Not enough hardware was supplied to install following the instructions. Instructions show split lock washers on each bolt. Had to purchase additional split lock washers. Not impressed with the fact that I now need to keep up with 3 specialty tools to service/remove this rack that is supposed to be quick release. 1 key to lock the bases, 1 key to remove the bar end caps and a 5mm safety post Allen which is a stupid tool anyway. The hardware should be standard Allen or torx not safety. The tube end caps should be able to be removed with a flat head or normal tool and not a proprietary key. This would eliminate two superfluous tools. Overall I would not buy this rack again, I would go with a different system.

Great Roof Rack! It is super quiet when driving down the road even when going 75+ mph. Exceeded all my expectations. I paired mine with the Rhino Rack Hybrid Bike Carrier (RBC050). I’m able to fully open my hatchback (2018 Honda Civic 5dr) and it looks great as well.

2020 Ford Edge with Vista Roof. Product arrived ahead of predicted delivery date. Very easy to assemble and directions were very easy to follow. Product is very high quality. I found 150mm front and 140mm rear to be the correct dimensions (I read a feedback that said they were not correct). No problems with Vista Roof, legs sit on the metal roof part not the glass. Overall very pleased with my purchase.

Just what I was looking for for my 2021 MB Metris Cargo Van with Raised Rails, for hauling a 14-foot SUP. I wanted as low profile as possible and the Rhino Rack SX Series Legs and Aero Crossbars looked best. Relatively easy to set up.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Straightforward installation and high quality product. I had to shift the front bar a few inches more towards the hood than the instructions suggested. I think this is because the 2021 Durango refresh slightly changed the roof profile. I can detect no noise coming from these bars while driving at any speeds.

Very straight forward to install. Took about a half hour in total. No whistling whatsoever. They look awesome on my 2016 Ford Explorer Sport! Especially with my running boards and tires... Waiting on my Rhino basket to get here to install that next!

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I wouldn't buy these bars again. Starting with the good, they work as a roof rack and have allowed me to transport my kayak. So that's been great! That said, I would have spent more to get a different kind of rack. These have a serious design flaw. They're hollow tubes with an open slit down the middle. They give you a rubber strip to plug up the hole as best you can, then you put caps on either side of the bars. The bars basically act as two giant clarinets on top of your car. No one can stand the whistling/squealing when they drive in my car. They ask me to take the bars down when they drive with me. I thought this was normal for temporary racks until I was in the car with a friend who had different temp racks and didn't hear a thing.


Comments
Thank you for the review. Many times the whistling is due to the channel not being sealed. Here is a replacement strip, part # RRM626. A wind fairing can help to reduce sound as well, part # RRRF4.

Excellent system. Little to no wind noise. Measurements to mount the rear bar to the 2020 Equinox are incorrect in the instructions but easy to adjust to an exact fit.
