Expert Answers about Rhino Rack

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack Vortex And Thule Aeroblade Roof Racks For 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Both the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero and Thule AeroBlade roof rack systems have very nice features and would work well for your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both systems are designed to work on vehicles that have the flush mounted rail system. As far as the design or advantages or disadvantages of the Rhino-Rack system versus the Thule system, it is very difficult to say it has features that are better than the Thule. They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack has...

  • How to Determine if 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee has E-Group Roof For Picking Out Roof Rack
  • The E-Group rails are ones that have a chrome section that runs down the middle of the rail. The non-E-Group rails are totally black without a chrome section. I attached a picture that has the chrome section pictured. If your roof has the E-Group rails you would need the part # RRRVP27 that you referenced as that is what this rack is designed to fit. Otherwise you'd need the Yakima roof rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y00146, and # Y06121.

  • Recommended Method to Carry Kayaks on 2015 Toyota Highlander XLE with Factory Roof Rack
  • There are several ways you can go to rig your 2015 Toyota Highlander with fixed factory roof crossbars for transporting kayaks. Adding a secondary roof rack is not an option, however, since aftermarket racks would have to use the same mounting points as your OEM bars. I confirmed this with my contacts at both Rhino-Rack and Thule. But there are also other ways you can carry kayaks that might give you additional cargo-carrying capabilities and/or possibly save you some money as compared...

  • Troubleshooting Loud Whistling After Rhino Rack Roof Rack Install
  • Did you install the rubber strip in the upper and lower channel of the crossbars? What you described sounds like you are missing that as these are aero bars and should not be whistling at all. If there are any holes in the channel on the bottom or top of the bar they should be covered to get rid of the noise. Or you can use a fairing like part # RRRF3 to direct the air over the rack.

  • Rhino-Rack StealthBar Roof Rack and Basket Fit for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • I am certain that you will not have a problem mounting Rhino-Rack basket # RMCB02 with the StealthBar roof rack # JA7972 on your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Basically, even though this is a low-profile roof rack, the bottoms of the basket mount hardware will still be about level with the tops of the side rails on your Jeep. Take a look at the picture I have included showing a close up of how far the hardware goes. Now if could be a little difficult to get the hardware in place because...

  • What Roof Rack for 2013 Nissan Rogue With Naked Roof
  • Roof rails on your 2013 Rogue are a factory-only option. We cannot offer these rails themselves on an aftermarket basis. However, we can offer you several options for roof racks that can be fitted to a 2013 Nissan Rogue with a naked roof (meaning a roof with no factory-installed side rails or crossbars). Differences between products suitable for your Rogue will include shape, length and color of the crossbars, weight capacity of the rack system, and how quiet the rack is during highway...

  • Adapter Needed for Mounting Rhino Rack Batwing Awning to Yakima Round Bars
  • The Rhino Rack Batwing part # RR33200 does not come with the adapter to fit to Yakima round crossbars. For that you will also need the part # RR31105. This also works with Thule square crossbars as well and for the driver side mounted awning part # RR33100.

  • Rhino-Rack Vehicle Awnings Comparison Between the Foxwing and the Foxwing Eco 2.1
  • The Foxwing Awning for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero and Heavy-Duty Crossbars has been discontinued. However to answer your question, it fits crossbars with a minimum spread of 31-1/2 inches where the Foxwing Eco 2.1 # RR31117 fits crossbars with a minimum spread of 27-1/2 inches. There is also a difference in coverage. The discontinued Foxwing covers 107.6 sq feet and the Eco 2.1 covers 72 sq feet. Those are the only differences.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • If you have flush rails that run front to back on the roof of your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee that have a chrome rail on top of them the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RLCP27, and # RRVA-FK2-2 would be the correct parts you would need. If instead you have a naked roof you would want the part numbers # THLB58, # TH480, and # THKIT1656.

  • Value Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Kia Soul With Bare Roof
  • I have roof rack options for your 2017 Kia Soul that will use the factory mounting points on your roof, but all of the Rhino-Rack roof rack options use the clamps with the side straps. If you want to stay around the same price point as the Rhino-Rack 2500 Roof Rack, # DS126B, that you mentioned, then you will want to take a look at the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, # 59789. This roof rack has the same weight capacity of 165 lbs, which is the weight capacity for the entire roof rack,...

  • Replacing Lock Cores on Rhino-Rack Locks
  • First, you are going to need a key for the old locks. The key is needed to depress the tumblers in the locks you have. Otherwise you will not be able to get them out. What is the number on the face of the locks you have? With the key inserted you will then need access to the back of the lock. At the back there is a metal tab holding the lock in. Use a flat blade tool or knife to press that tab down while at the same time pushing the lock out from the back. To insert a new lock put...

  • Will Installing Roof Rack on 2011 Ford Flex w/ Vista Roof Cause Glass Panels to Leak
  • I have included a link to all of the roof racks that we offer for the 2011 Ford Flex with the vista roof. These roof rack systems do not come in contact with the roof panels so I am not aware as to how they would cause leakage but I made a few calls to my contacts at our roof rack manufacturers just to confirm. Each said that they have no reported issues with the roof racks causing any problems with the glass roof panels. With this being said, I recommend taking a look at the Rhino-Rack...

  • Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for a 2017 Nissan Rogue
  • For carrying a Kayak on almost any vehicle, I recommend aero style bars, as their width is a better platform for the shape of the kayak. For a rack kit, I recommend the RhinoRack Vortex Aero kit, consisting of: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, 49 inches long, Silver, part # RRVA126S-2, or Black, part # RRVA126B-2 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex bars, part # RRRLKVA DK Fit Kit for 2500 Legs, part # DK396 This provides you with a solid rack for your vehicle.

  • Compatibility of Thule Roof-Mount Bike Racks with Rhino Rack 2500 Series Cross Bars
  • The Rhino Rack 2500 Series cross bars measure 3-1/2 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches tall. Most of the Thule roof-mounted racks that use clamps like the Circuit XT, # TH526XT or the Sidearm, # TH594XT will fit your cross bar. Other Thule racks can use an adapter to mount in the slot on top of the bar should fit, as the slot is of similar dimension to those used on Thule Aero Blade cross bars. If you would care to respond with the specific model number of your Thule bike rack, I would be happy...

  • Roof Rack Options for 2014 Chevy Equinox with Naked Roof
  • When we describe a roof as a naked roof that means the vehicle has absolutely no hardware whatsoever on the roof. If it has tracks that run front to back then the vehicle will have different roof rack fits. The Rhino-Rack 2500 Series rack, consisting of parts # DS118B and # DK226, does use clamps that grab onto the door jambs. This racks fits your Equinox if there is no hardware at all on the roof. If your Equinox has factory rails that run front-to-back then you have other options from...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Volkswagen Passat
  • Yes, you can install a Rhino-Rack roof rack on your 2017 Volkswagen Passat with naked roof. First, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex crossbars # RRVA126B-2. They are aerodynamic and light weight. They are also available in silver, # RRVA126S-2. For a leg kit to mount the bars to I recommend # RRRLKVA and for a custom clamp kit to attach to the roof I recommend # DK323. I have linked a video showing and example installation for you.

  • Kayak Carrier to Carry 120 LBS Pro Angler Kayak on 2013 Honda CR-V with Thule Roof Rack
  • I may have a solution that will allow you to load your Pro Angler 14 foot kayak on the roof rack of your 2013 Honda CR-V, but before you select a kayak carrier for your vehicle, I strongly recommend checking the weight capacity of your vehicle's roof. The weight capacity of most vehicle roofs is not very high and this information should be located in your owner's manual. Overloading a roof rack can cause damage to your roof rack and the roof of your vehicle. If you find that you can...

  • What Roof Racks Fit 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Hard Top Roof
  • Roof racks for your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hardtop are available from Yakima and Thule. I have included a link to our product page that shows all four available rack systems for your Jeep. The main differences between the available racks are their crossbar spread (the distance between front and rear crossbars once mounted to your Wrangler) and the shapes of the crossbars themselves. A wider crossbar spread makes it easier to transport longer items. The wing-like aero shape crossbar...

  • How Hard is it to Remove a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack when Not in Use
  • You would need to use the Allen key to remove the Rhino-Rack roof rack # RRRS323 every time. But it isn't as difficult or time-consuming as it sounds. After you have done the initial installation and have taken the rack off and put it back on a couple of times, it might take you all of 5 minutes to remove it or put it back on. I have included links to a video review and the instructions for you.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Kia Sedona
  • You can absolutely install an aftermarket roof rack on your 2017 Kia Sedona. In fact, an aftermarket roof rack is typically stronger and more durable than factory installed systems.

This system, which is confirmed to fit your Sedona, consists of parts # RRVA137B-2 and # RRSX023. This will provide an extremely quiet roof rack with two 54 inch, aerodynamic...

  • Fit of Rhino Rack 2500 Series Euro Style Crossbar Roof Rack on 2015 Dodge Durango
  • The Rhino Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack you mentioned that consists of # DS137B and # DK299 is indeed a fit for your 2015 Durango. The clamps are plastic coated to prevent scratching. Because the bars are square, you'll get some noise caused by wind turbulence. This can be reduced by using a fairing like part # RRRF4. Using a Rhino Rack Vortex Aero roof rack, consisting of # RRVA137B-2 crossbars, # RRRLKVA feet and the # DK299 clamp kit would be a good deal more quiet due to the aerodynamic...

  • Roof Rack and Ski/Snowboard Rack Recommendation for 2015 Audi Q7
  • For your 2015 Audi Q7, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 and SRB Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRSX027. The aerodynamic design of these crossbars helps to reduce wind noise and drag. This is our most popular roof rack for the Q7 with flush side rails. These crossbars clamp to the side rails on your vehicle. They are easy to install and can be removed whenever needed. I have attached a video of these crossbars on a 2014 Volvo XC60 with flush mount side...

  • Can Rhino-Rack RTC Roof Rack Tracks be Cut to a Certain Length
  • You could trim the Rhino-Rack roof rack tracks # RTC14 if you needed or wanted to. Just make sure that the cuts are perfectly straight up and down so the end caps will fit properly. Rhino-Rack does offer the tracks in other lengths. The shortest set is # RTC8JW at 31-1/2 inches long. If you need a specific size I can check to see if we have an exact match. The tracks are compatible with Rhino-Rack RLTP legs # RLTP, RLCP legs, # RLT500, and RLTF legs, # RLTF.
