Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier

Whether you are hauling 6 pairs of skis, 4 snowboards, or a family-size load of fishing poles, this carrier ensures that you will arrive at your destination with all your gear intact - and you'll do it without breaking the bank.

Locking Carriers

The Rhino-Rack ski and fishing rod carrier comes with a lock on each unit, offering you peace of mind when you are hanging at the lodge after a long day on the slopes or out on the lake in your boat.

Large Push Button

The carrier operates with a large push button on the side of the unit. This design allows for easy loading and unloading of skis, a snowboard, or fishing rods, even if you're wearing fingerless mittens or big, bulky winter gloves.

Universal Mounting Hardware

The ski and fishing rod carrier mounts in the top channel of your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero or Heavy-Duty crossbars with T-bolts or channel nuts. It also comes with universal clamp-on mounting hardware that lets you use the carrier on square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars right out of the box.

Soft Molding

This carrier protects your gear with soft rubber molding inside the hinged arms of the carrier. The molding gently cradles your skis, snowboard, or fishing rods and won't damage paint or cause abrasions.

E trailer

I have a 2019 Mazda6 and
purchased the rhino rack series 2500 parts (fit kit #DK289, foot pack #RRRLKVA, aero crossbars#RRVA126B-2), and the rhino rack snowboard/ski carrier #RR576. My car does have fixed mounting points underneath the strip on the roof so I opted to add them to my roof and not use the clamp for kit that goes in the door jam. Every time I entered the year, make, and model of my car, the parts came up with the clamp fit kit part #DK387 which I did not want. But after some research, I found the correct fixed mounting point fit kit. The site of course told me that this part wouldn’t fit my car but after looking at the customer reviews, I saw them used on Mazdas. All of the rhino rack instructions were not the best. We did have to make some adjustments. One of the instruction packs tells you how long you’re supposed to cut the rubber pieces that go into the crossbars based on your car but unfortunately, the measurements were wrong for my car (picture- front 166mm is wrong). The front bar length was about an inch too short and I had to add more rubber to make it longer to fit the fixed mounting points on my roof. After some time of trying to interpret the instructions, and looking up whatever available instructional videos were online, we finally finished installing them and they do look really nice. At higher speeds on the highway I can definitely hear more noise. The actual snowboard carrier is fine, fits all 4 boards fine. It is a little difficult to close once I have my boards in there because you have to push the top bar all the way down and hold it down to be able to turn the key to lock it. I’m just happy I don’t have to shove the boards in my trunk. I do like that all the parts in this series come with locks and keys. So far no problems. Overall good product.


This rack works great with the four pairs of skis I lugged from Oregon to Alaska. I'm using it on the beef rack cross bars that came with my go fast camper which are very difficult to find mountings for. This one worked great though with a little bit of metal grinding on the bolts that slide into the t-slot of the rack. It locks and unlocks fairly easily (with a little bit of jangling involved), but so far so good!


Overall they work very well. Easy to install, remove, and they seem very durable. Knocked a star off only because when you start to load a couple skis or boards on it, the locking mechanism can be tricky to lock. Takes some squeezing and pumping of the latching area to find the "sweet spot" where it'll lock. I've always been able to eventually lock them, but there's been a couple pretty cold mornings where it would have been able to lock more easily.


Poor fit and finish. I will be requesting a refund. Very difficult to lock and then when finally locked, would not unlock. There is no way these hold four snowboards. I struggled to close each one with only 2 boards. The catch would not engage with only two boards and clearly required a great deal of force. One of the racks, when finally closed, would disengage the catch each time I went to lock it. I ended up having to use bungee cords to secure each assembly as I was not confident they would stay closed when in use.


Great product at a great price. Fit an adult snowboard, two sets of adult skis (one set stacked, one set side by side because of how close the bindings were to the roof), and a set of youth skis. Fit snug. Only got up to about 73mph on the highway, but no issues. Some normal fluttering on the snowboard/skis. If you have a torque meter to tighten the bolts that's ideal but I didn't. I just got them snug enough to where I pulled back and forth on the rack and it didn't move.


These carriers fit nicely and hold our snowboard and skis well!


Works well. I do get a lot of extra noise when I go above 45 mph. I have a Kia Sorento and this is the first ski rack I’ve ever had. Maybe most people know this but, it was new to me. Also, if someone has the special Allen wrench they could easily take it. It’s easy to take on and off so when I don’t need it, I take it off to avoid extra noise.


Good locks, secure and tight. I easily fit two snowboards with two pairs of skis. Seems like it would fit on many rack/bar systems. I use them on the rhino aero vortex bars. They are pretty noisy on my f150 trucks roof. I’ve tried moving them around to many different positions, there always seems to be a worse vibrating wind noise around 45-55 mph which is even worse when the boards/skis are off the truck.
I would not recommend this setup for anyone with a pickup truck.


The Rhino Rack is temperamental. It doesn't open or close as easily as our old Thule rack. At times we struggled to get it open (locks froze). After that incident,it was difficult to get it to snap closed and lock. For the first time, we took the racks off the car once ski season was over because we were afraid more exposure to the elements would make it worse.

I reached out to Rhino Rack who advised that it can become difficult to lock as the rubber piece slides forward. They recommend making sure that it is not in the way when using the lock.



Still using it and it still has the same issues with temperamental opening and closing.


I'm completely satisfied with my purchase from etrailer. First, the company provides terrific support, from installation instructions to responding quickly to questions. Second, the carriers are great. They are easy to install and remove. I am confident they are securely installed and my skis are safe. I wasn't worried about them as I drove down I-80 in Wyoming at 80mph. Having the skis on the roof made it possible for me, my wife, our infant son in his car seat, our dog, our cat in his carrier, and our luggage to fit in our car so we could enjoy a week-long ski trip in Utah. The only reason I held back from giving a 5-star review is the noise. I might be able to reduce it by moving around the rail inserts or adding an air dam. I'll report back if either of those work. Until then, I'll happily and confidently keep using the carriers.

I wouldnt give the racks as high of marks as I did a year ago. The plastic covers for the brackets have become extremely difficult to get back on. The last two times I used the bars, I just left them off. Thankfully no one has stolen the racks, but not having them on makes me nervous.


Very satisfied with it. Works great to carry my skis/snowboards on my 2022 Rav4 with crossbars.


Easy to install and feels reasonably solid. Why not a 5-star rating? Unfortunately, the key lock gets stuck every time. It takes a while fumbling with the key until it yields to open, more so one of them.


Work like a charm and handles the entire ski load for the family.


This is my 1st interaction with any customer service that has gone above and beyond for me in years. After purchasing this ski rack on line and submitting the order I realized I had entered my email address incorrectly. I sent an email explaining my error and asked for someone to make the correction so I could receive a receipt. This was a Saturday but I received a response within 15 minutes and the error had been fixed! I also received updates on shipping dates and an additional email when it actual shipped. I got home late the day it arrived but decided to mount it on my SUV. The install couldn’t have been easier and it looks sharp! I’m anxious to get on the slopes and grateful to know there are still a few companies that actually support their customers. I will look to them in the future for similar needs!!


We use this for our family of 3, which includes 2 snowboards and 1 set of skis. It worked out great last winter on our Rav4 and I dont't see any problems with it working just as well this winter.


I have a 2016 Ford Edge that had a naked roof. No roof rack of any kind. I purchased this Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar complete kit(RRVA137B-2, RRRLKVA and DK432) and the Rhino Ski and Snowboard carrier RR576. Once you got all of the pieces laid out and read the easy to follow instructions. We also watched a video on you tube. I say it took my brother and I about 2 hours. We were being extra careful and made sure we were understanding each part of the instructions. Especially when it came to the measuring and cutting of the vortex strips. You don't want to mess up on that. I am very happy with the quality and the ease of the installation. You do feel a little wind resistance when driving. I have been driving around town to get a feel of the car. We are leaving on our snowboarding trip tomorrow. I will try to add an update when I have fully used the product.


Bought a Euro Roof rack and Rhino ski rack in October.
I ordered both items incorrectly....
I ordered the wrong fit kit (4 door instead of 5 door)....then I ordered to small of a ski rack. Didn’t start installed them until two months after receiving them so the return option was out of the question.
Etrailer worked with me and got me the correct parts and helped me send back to wrong ones.
They were all so helpful and informative. Kept me updated on the shipments and payment processes. The euro rack and rhino ski rack work amazing. We have a set of skis and one snowboard. Fits perfect. We have extra room for friends that ride up with us.
Easily installed.
Went 80mph and could barely hear them.
Would recommend this company to everyone.

by: provided one of the best online buying experiences I have had. The site offered a product that fit our needs with high quality at a very competitive price. The online transaction was flawless, and the product arrived when expected with no damage. The product itself is very sturdy, exceeding my expectations, and installed easily. Very happy customer.


Did a Google search for ski racks and happened upon this one. Shipping was super fast. Rack was easy to figure out and get mounted on factory crossbars. Locked 1 set of skis in and took it out for trial run. Got speed up to normal interstate speed (65-70 mph). No noticeable change in noise or handling.

I do plan to obtain another Allen wrench with security hole in it in case I happen to misplace the one which came with it.


Shipping was quick! Usually, since quarantine, factory shipments have been getting delayed but not this one. The carrier came already constructed, so all I had to do was lock it into place on the roof rack system. Overall, very satisfied with my purchase!


Worked well for our trip out west for 3 paid of Skis


The rack is well made and can fit skis of varying thicknesses as well as ski poles. Installation was easy enough, with the brackets provided accommodating the curvature of my OEM cross bars. Some have commented about it being challenging to clamp. I agree, but in my 40+ years of ski rack use do not recall a rack not having some issues aligning with the lock mechanism. In my youth I would have just slammed it together, caveman style, trying to make them align. Those days are gone,and given the lock tabs are made of plastic, I take the mature approach and align the rack prior to gently pressing the top bar down into the bottom bar. I have no opinion as to long term durability, but having run into issues with Yakima racks and Barrecrafter ( yes, I am older), I guess I never expect to get 10+ years out of a rack. Given the price, I am happy with what I bought.


so far so good.
they are doing their


Bought this for my boyfriend a year ago. He loves it. I was worried about getting him this as he drives high speeds on the highway everyday for work and leaves his snowboards on his car all winter long. He has never had any problems.


Price is good and competitive! EZ installation and looks great on roof rack of Cherokee! Only one complaint, creates wind noise while driving and certain all similar carriers do the same.
