2017 F150 Camper Shell. Nice system and install is pretty simple once you gather your measurements, Luckily, I have a friend with an identical truck, so it didn’t take me very long. I used blue painters take to layout the tracks and drilled my holes. System is nice but does whistle at 70 mph.

UPS destroyed the first rack system that came but etrailer sent a second one very fast. Zero complaints



by:

Very nice rack package. Everything was complete, and install was easy 4/10. I had used another review for the hole spacing, as it was easier. Holes at each end 5/8 in then at 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, for a total of 8 on each rail. I bought the heavy duty set, that’s why there’s 8. The standard has only 6/rail. I marked a centerline on the cap, and put the rails at 36” on center. I used painters tape to be sure they were straight. I also measured , and laid out the holes on the cap and drilled a SINGLE HOLE at the 36” mark. Then verified that the end holes would hit the reinforced portion of my ARE cap. Once that was verified, I drilled the rest of the holes. Because of the camber of the cap, a second person is helpful (holding the rail tight to the cap) when tightening up the nuts from inside the cap. After that, the rest was easy. Just center the rail mounts and lock them in. I would definitely recommend this rack set up, Especially since it was half of what my local Yakima dealer quoted me.
This was installed on a 2016 Silverado, 2500.
Tools used- Tape measure, grease pencil, painters tape, 1/4” drill bit and Cordless drill.

great.

Been a year of having and the Product is good ,just make sure to count how many through fasteners that are included. (Or read instructions first and count parts)
The instructions had a measurement as a “drill through” every certain amount of distance note and as it turned out , I had 4 less through fasteners than the measurements alloyed for on my track rails. I happened to find a pack of the fasteners on eBay so it all worked out.
Just learn from my mistake and double check.



by:

Be careful with this system. Our side rail failed on a trip after 2 years of use. The rear right side cracked out while going down the interstate. We lost our kayaks on top. We were under the weight limit and had everything ratchet strapped down to the system. We did contact rhino rack about the warranty, they were less than helpful. They denied our claim based on the fact we did not have the kayak strapped to the front and rear bumpers. etrailer was very helpful getting us all the information we needed to submit a warranty claim.
Normally I never leave a review, but be cautious of the aluminum rails, they did not hold up long term.



by:

I mean I just installed it, but the rack seems really sturdy and like it will do a great job. The hardest part was getting the roof rails lined up correctly. I spent some time on it to get things just right and it seems to have worked out well. I read some reviews where people complained about missing hardware and such, but that was not my experience. Everything was there. Just make sure to check inside the roof rails for the rubber vortex inserts. I initially thought they were missing until I dumped them out.

Rhino rack products are great and you can't blame etrailer for R.R. packaging. My package was missing a track end cap, etrailer made it right. My big question was how much deflection the track could take on a A.R.E. MX topper with slightly curved roof? Did not want to overstress track, bolts or topper. I carefully prebent track and very happy with results. Bolts were long and had to trim.



by:

I used this rack to mount on top of my Roll and lock tonneau cover because they don't offer the T-slot option with the RAM box truck bed. It works great.



by:

Super straight forward install, very strong works great! No leaks! I haule surfboards and kayaks, just what I needed. As always customer service is above and beyond! Sorry wish I had better pictures



by:

Having owned an etrailer rack for a year, I can say several things with certainty. 1–the materials are 1st rate—some companies skimp—Etrailer doesn’t. 2-The design of the product makes for a sturdy, reliable rack—worry-free comes to mind. Finally, etrailer employs knowledgeable, courteous people. I will buy from them again.

I found this product to be in excellent condition and satisfied may needs. In the install, be conscious of the holes you drill, bit size and so forth. You want to be sure when installing the product that you get good seal. Excellent product..

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!

Perfection in every sense of the word!

I ordered this Rhino Rack Aero bar package for my 2014 GMC Sierra 1500, 6.5’ bed with ARE camper shell. The order was shipped very quickly and arrived ahead of the original estimated delivery date. I installed this on my camper shell with no problems. I am very OCD about my truck being clean and things lining up properly and evenly, so I spent a bit of extra time measuring and adjusting and measuring and adjusting to make sure it was precise, so the overall install for me took about 3 hours. But I thought that wasn’t too bad. Overall, I am very pleased with the ordering, shipping and product itself so far. Can’t evaluate actually putting anything on it yet as I have not done so yet, but it feels very solid and well made.



by:

Great price for the set. Had to remove existing tracks (yakima) and install the new set. Yakima tracks was smaller and the foot base hardware did not fit, so off goes yakima and new tracks installed using existing holes. Very pleased.

Thank you etrailer.



by:

the product as I look in the box looks appears to in new condition and looks to be a quaility product. The one star rating is more towards the unprofessional conduct or should I just call what it is. I asked if the Rhino company makes longer tracks to better support a longer kayak than the 63 inch on the their web site, the response was no. Then I said what do they do when the vehicle has an eight foot canopy. The response was I don't know. My response was well I guess I don't have a choice. So I made the purchase. After the delivery I sat the track on top to see how its going to look. Looks like I bought a misfit from a yard sale to get by. Not happy with the look and support I needed for the kayak, I contacted Rhino directly and yes they do make longer tracks. I was flat lied to so they can make a sale. I'm in their computer for a lot of purchases over the years. They lost paying customer.

Easy install on the roof of my truck cap. Take your time measuring before drilling and all will be good. Have ample painter's tape that can be easily marked and removed.



by:
2019 Ford F-150

My roof rack arrived today and I installed the rails.
The product is sturdy, and attractive.
I am very pleased with the quality.
Installation Instructions are clear and precise.
The most important detail is to install the tracks parallel to each other and square to the roof
I recommend taking time to get this step correct.
I had another rack at one point but this rhino rack is far superior.
I would recommend it highly.

The rail kit for fiberglass truck caps arrived promptly and was as described on the website. Reasonably easy to install and easily as good as Thule and Yakima racks for half the money. My only minor quibble is a couple of small scratches on a crossbar. However, since it's sure to get scratches from normal use is not a big deal. It'll be used to mount an awning and extra gear for group camping trips.

Installed on 2014 F-150 w/ fiberglass topper. Almost downgraded kit a star because of the instructions... incomplete and some important errors... so do the math and don't trust the indicated 5-5/8" spacing for drilling the mounting holes... you'll end up w/ extra holes you'll need to go back and fill... recommend keeping it simple, two are 5/8" in from both ends, and then just mark at 9", 18", 27", 36", 45" and 54" for the other six hole, from either end. There are eight bolts for each side, but only six rubber grommets, had to presume since the two end ones go thru the rubber end cap they didn't need/get a grommet. Did it by myself; definitely recommend a second pair of hands to at least hold the other end the rail during marking, a helper would have made installation a whole lot simpler and faster. But the end results make it all worthwhile.

Over all good. Nice fit.used on existing tracks, so I had to do small modifications on t-bolt flange by grinding a small amount from each side.

Well built, easy to install, works grea t!

I am missing two of the Legs for this product.
I
received two of them in the package, but it takes four of them to complete the system.

It definitely does! I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this right away.

Quiet rack on the highway. I cut my rails to fit a camper shell, it was easy and finished well. The standard (plastic) end cap locks don't work well on the Aero bars, two of four can be removed easily with less than 10 pounds of force, looks like an alignment issue. Overall a quality product, probably should pay for the metal lock cores for the covers. It's a bit heavier than other racks. I'm pleased with the result so far. Will update after some serious use.

fit perfectly and looks great. ready to surf this summer

Absolutely fantastic! I’ve used it for surfboards, paddle boards, kayaks, tables, and a bunch of other stuff. Whatever I can fit up there and strap it down, I’ve done. Definitely have put my rhino racks to use and they’ve been very reliable. I’m very satisfied with my purchase!
