Review from a similar LockNLoad in Roof Rack


Mounted to the top of my 2018 F-150 Super Crew Cab. Had Yakima Baselines, with HD Bars, HD Bar Adapters and the locknload crossbar adapters. Wished I was able to install it without crossbars as it requires that I buy them, also adds a bit of height to the the locknload as well. Very well built, had my wife (125lbs) walking around on it after I mounted the locknload. Took about an hour to assemble the locknload and maybe another hour or two of adjusting the bars to where I wanted the locknload to sit on the roof. Other than it looks a bit too high I do love them. Will probably see what I can do about lowering the locknload in the future.

Review from a similar LockNLoad in Roof Rack


Love it! Used it on our Subaru Outback when we wanted a firmer and wider platform than the stock crossbars. The platform is even more useful than I thought because you can mount accessories (e.g., canoe carriers) all the way to the edge if you use the T-channel to secure them. I would've probably gotten one size smaller had I realized that.

Review from a similar LockNLoad in Roof Rack


I am going to include the Landing Pads, Skyline Towers, LockNLoad adapters, and Pivoting Mounts that are all required for my vehicle in this review of the 84" x 54" LockNLoad Platform. First, I had done months of research trying to figure out what would work and meet my needs for a 2008 GMC Yukon XL. Without the help of etrailer's agent, Ashley, I'd probably still be trying to figure things out! Ashley was patient and thorough, she made sure I had all the parts I needed for a fairly complex (and large!)project. I cannot thank her enough! On to the assembly and installation: Ashley confirmed that following instructions was key to efficient building - I found that combining online instructions with the included hard copies worked best. As an example, the online fastener images and descriptions are far better than the paper ones. Then, having the paper instructions in hand made "in the moment" progress much faster. All of the Yakima parts fit together perfectly, and by methodically following the instructions (I cannot stress this enough!), including pre assembling Landing Pads, Towers, and Pivoting Mounts, there was no need to backtrack. Once I had a day to devote to the project, everything went very smoothly. Placing the large Platform on the mounts does require two people, but the rest was easy for one fairly handy person to accomplish. Making adjustments to be sure the Platform is centered and square to the roof took some time but it's worth it in the end. Again, thanks to etrailer and particularly Ashley! It was a pleasure doing business with you!

This thing added a great deal of flexibility to my 4Runner. Rock solid and almost limitless options for roof storage allowed me to customize it to transport a kayak and roof box that would never have been possible otherwise.

All You need is to get the Yakima LockNLoad Platform # Y05044, SkyLine Towers # Y00148, SL Adapter # Y05042-2 and these Landing Pad 18 # Y00244. This is just like the rhino rack platform.

  • Platform Tray/Roof Rack that Fits 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
    For your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee we don't have a Rhino Rack Pioneer platform that fits your roof rails directly but we have the very similar Yakima LockNLoad Platform Tray setup part numbers # Y05044, # Y00148, # Y05042-2, and # Y00244 which does fit your rail setup directly. This tray is 55 inch by 49 inch. We can't recommend opening your roof with this installed though as it might interfere but also it's going to cause quite a bit of wind noise.

    We can set your 2021 Toyota RAV4 up with a platform rack, and the XLE model should have flush-mounted side rails (as opposed to raised side rails), which the rack will attach to.

These clamps will work with the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Trays like the 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044, 76" Long x 65" Wide # Y05046, or 84" Long x 54" Wide # Y05048.

    While you can add a platform rack to your 2020 Toyota Highlander, I checked with our manufacturers and there isn't a direct-mount option for your vehicle.
