pioneer in use on trail

Built for off-road use and tested in harsh Australian conditions, the Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform is a comprehensive solution for your cargo carrying needs. This platform's large, flat surface lets you carry more gear than a typical roof rack, freeing up space inside your vehicle. The Pioneer uses integrated channels in the planks and side rails to accommodate a wide variety of Rhino-Rack accessories, including rail systems, awnings, light brackets, and more. The platform mounts directly to your crossbars.

The Perfect Roof Rack for Any Outdoor Lifestyle

pioneer with accessories

Whether you are overlanding, camping, or tailgating, the Pioneer platform's ample surface space lets you carry a large amount of cargo and gear. This helps free up space inside of your vehicle so you and your passengers can travel comfortably. The integrated channels located in the planks and side rails let you install channel-mount accessories, like an awning or kayak carrier, similar to a traditional roof rack. But, there are also several accessories that install exclusively to the Pioneer platform, such as the aluminum folding ladder and gas can holders. And because of the platform's design you can utilize many of these accessories at the same time.

front and side railsfull rails

Additionally, a rail system can be installed to enhance your application. The rails bolster the safety of your load and create additional tie-down points for your gear. They are easy to install and simply bolt into the channels on the platform's side rails. This platform is compatible with front and side rails (RR43165B - sold separately) and full rails (RR43189B - sold separately).

Utilitarian Design with Rugged, Off-Road Look

pioneer aerodynamic design

The Pioneer platform was designed with utility in mind and features a rugged, off-road look. The low-profile tray was also designed to be aerodynamic to help reduce wind noise and drag.

Strong, Durable Construction

pioneer close up

Strong, yet lightweight, the platform's frame is constructed of aluminum and includes reinforced nylon connectors. Since these materials are powder coated and non-corrosive, the platform won't rust or fade when exposed to the weather. Rhino-Rack has rigorously tested the Pioneer in the harsh Australian outback, ensuring it's built to withstand anything your adventures throw at it.

Universal Fit on Most Crossbars

This Pioneer platform rack fits most crossbars and includes all the parts necessary to install it. However, it is not compatible with Rhino Rack Heavy Duty crossbars. The platform comes unassembled, so you will have to put it together before proceeding to the installation. After this is complete, simply use the clamps to connect the bars on the bottom of the platform and crossbars together. Alternatively, you can bolt the platform to the integrated channels on the crossbars using the upper clamp and included hardware.

Purchased this about a month ago after having a mediocre cargo basket that started to rust after 2 weeks. This platform is not only more convenient and adaptable but it looks [really] great! Took some time to assemble but I made that every piece fit and lined up correctly. Nice finish and strongly constructed. I should have gotten this first! I also got the matching rail system to complete the set-up. Highly recommended. Shout out the the staff at etrailer for again for the great communication from start to finish!

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

I ordered the Rhino Rack Platform Rack with Backbone System for my 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to enable it to mount a rooftop tent. The rack is expensive at about $1600 all in, but I have no question about this rack’s capabilities and it looks awesome. I prepped myself by watching several different videos, including etrailer’s installation video. Everything went fairly well, but I encountered a couple of minor issues. First, when I bolted the platform extrusions to the end rails from the bottom of the rack, I didn’t pay attention to the topside of the extrusions. After completing this and turning the rack right side up, I found that each screw had forced the ends of each extrusion up slightly so that they were not flush to the end rails. I am debating whether to leave this as is or to remove each screw and add another washer to relieve the pressure it is causing. Second, although I carefully placed the rear and middle brackets in position and was careful with the drilling template for the front bracket, there was still some misalignment that couldn’t be overcome by the small ovals where the legs connect to the platform. I had to expand these ovals by drilling them wider. Eventually I got a good fit. Finally, the quick mount legs required two different keys to remove the platform. This was caused by the quick mount legs coming in the form of two separate kits. One kit contained two legs and one key (no spare) and the other kit had four legs and two keys. The key numbers from these two sets were different. I contacted etrailer, but they had no control over the key set packaging and referred me to Rhino Rack. Rhino Rack was very responsive and sent me new cylinders and keys so that I had locks that were all keyed the same, as well as having a total of four matching keys. We haven’t used the rack yet, but I love the styling and enhancement it gives my Jeep. Just check out my picture...

I still love the Rhino Rack platform and it works great with my rooftop tent!

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

Excellent build and fit for the 2019 RAM Power Wagon WITH a sunroof. I would highly recommend using additional RTV to seal the holes. It barely clears the Sat antenna and the sunroof. The satellite radio cuts off easier because of the rack being on top of it. Instructions are clear enough for a DIY-type person to get this done properly. The rack, just like any roof rack does introduce more wind noise at high speed.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

The RINO RACK AND PIONEER PLATFORM are a great addition to my little Wrangler. etrailer folks were very helpful in determining exactly what I wanted and needed. The assembly instructions are very good - even though there are a lot of parts to assemble. I was able to complete the assembly by myself (with help getting the top off the jeep.) If I can offer a recommendation from my experience, I would pre-assemble the entire unit with the mounting brackets finger-tightened to the platform AND THEN set it on the roof - to insure that the holes needed to be drilled are in exactly the right spot. I had to re-drill two holes and maybe that was my own fault, but until I did, i could not get the platform to rest in the mounting brackets. All that said, I am VERY PLEASED with the RINO RACK product. It is very secure, easily accessible, very low profile (3" from roof to top of rack), large platform that still allows removal of the Freedom Top on my rig. It will give me the extra carrying capacity as we tow the jeep behind the motor home from Arizona to Alaska and hit lots of back country for tent camping in the process!!

Iwe continue to enjoy and appreciate the platform- AND i have addedthe rails, which have really helped with securing a load!!

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

I have been looking a long time for a good roof rack for my 2018 Toyota 4Runner and decided on the Rhino Pioneer Platform with the Backbone mounting system. Removal of the factory side rails was very easy. Putting the platform together was relatively easy and installing the Backbone mounting system in the existing factory holes was also quiet easy. Attaching the platform to the Backbone mounting system was a bit more challenging for me. I tend to take my time and double check everything as I go. Total build and installation time was approximately 6 hours. The end result is fantastic, it looks great, is very solid, will easily accommodate my needs (Rooftop Tent, lumber trips to Home Depot, Kayak, Mountain Bike, etc.). I have taken a couple of trips on the highway 80MPH and the wind noise is noticeable but acceptable. I will probably purchase the wind deflector and hope this will also positively impact the gas mileage. The people at etrailer are exceptional to deal with! Their pricing is good, their communication is excellent, shipping was fast, the packaging was perfect with all parts well protected and nothing missing. If you have any questions about the product or installation, they are knowledgeable and happy to help. The rack is solid, good looking, and well made. At this point my only concern is the high price for various accessories. I highly recommend this roof rack system and dealing with etrailer is a pleasure.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

Well I must say I am impressed--with the Rhino Rack and etrailer! This big ole Pioneer platform package arrived really quickly and was in perfect shape in and out--none of this already opened noise you hear about from sketchy vendors. The platform quality is also really good; I didn't expect it to be so good. I also really like how low it sits; they were obviously designing this to fit the Outback just right. I am a happy camper! Thanks etrailer for making this process worry/pain-free.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

Product arrived in a timely manner. Shipper banged up the outer package pretty bad but all products inside were wrapped all snug and secure. Only complaint is the plank came with the plank inserts already set. During shipping, one of these inserts shifted down well inside the plank. It took a very long time to retrieve it. Also, having those inserts already in place, one had the nut reversed and had to be removed, that as well took a long time to pry out of the plank. It's a great platform, I now own three. I would definatelt purchase again from etrailer.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

I bought this roof rack to mount on my 2018 Toyota TRD Off Road 4Runner. The reason I purchased it was because of the versatility that this product offers. There are many roof racks out there for my vehicle. Some are cheap and some are expensive. Some racks are smaller and some are full size. I was looking for a rack that wouldn't break the bank as well as cover a majority of the roof (without drilling). I have two young kids and I'd like to get them out more. Hence, buying the 4Runner as well as the rack. This rack will enable me to load a ton of stuff on it in the future such a roof top tent, awning, etc. Even though I'm somewhat handy, the installation did take around 3-4 hours. I did have one other person helping me. I highly recommend having an additional set of hands helping during the installation. The sides rail installation was easier than I thought it would be. The platform itself took longer to install. Overall: very happy with this product. I highly recommend it.

I love this roof rack! Since I purchased it, I also purchased the eye bolts for the rack and have used them numerous times over the past year. I have been able to move many different things on top of the rack. At this point, Im looking at possible getting the side guards in the near future.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

Bought the Rhino Rack 60 x 54 platform to mount over the bed of my '20 Jeep Gladiator. Then I will mount a Thule Cargo Box onto platform for additional storage of camping gear. I decided to go Rhino Rack because it really gives you options. I like the antenna mount options for my CB and Ham radio. Top quality materials and finish. Much nicer than I had anticipated. Package came well packed and in good order. But be advised it's pretty heavy. Assembly will look quite daunting at first. I would advise finding an elevated surface that is larger than the platform you purchase. One easy way is to empty your garage and get two 3 x 6 folding tables or 2 sawhorses and a piece of plywood. Put down a light colored cloth or blanket on work surface as not to scratch your platform. Make sure you received the size you ordered prior to opening box. Unpack box and find hardware box. I had a small clear plastic fishing lure organizer in which I put all hardware in. Trust me, there's a lot of hardware. You may then count all hardware against packing list if you wish. Set that hardware aside. Preview instructions as they are fairly clear. Then just lay out all the pieces upside down in the order they go together making sure all parts are accounted for. Then follow the instructions and you should be good to go. Have no hesitations in buying from etrailer. There customer service is fantastic and returns are super easy.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

There are so many options for the 4Runner. Going through all the research, choosing one, and being happy with it in the long run are overwhelming to someone like me that just has to be able to see all the angles. We did have a few requirements. It needed to be low profile enough to fit in the garage, it needed to be able to hold a RTT, and not break the bank. In the end, it came down to 3 options. Gobi Rhino Rack Front Runner I ruled out the Front Runner option because I wasn’t comfortable with drilling holes in the roof. Not that it can’t be done and done well. I just wasn’t comfortable doing it myself, nor did I have a local shop that I trusted to install the nutserts. Gobi was next to get eliminated. I love the look and the name speaks for itself with regard to quality. However, the long lead-times and high price tag were turn off’s. Short story long - We chose the #RhinoRack #pioneerplatform. First impressions - It looks great. It is lighter than the ARB we had before. Wind noise isn’t terrible at 70mph+. The textured powder coat seems tough enough. I like the full length. The #4Runner with 3inch lift still fits in the garage without drama. AND it was delivered to my door 3 days after ordering thanks to #etrailer The only negative feedback I can give are the directions. There were a couple head-scratcher moments.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

Loving my new Ford Bronco Sport Badlands model and the Pioneer Platform rack! With the Bronco Sport being so new, locating quality accessories was a bit of a challenge. I was excited to see Rhino Rack had the Pioneer Platform rack system I was looking for to start my build! Vicki at etrailer was super helpful in finding the parts, as listed on the Rhino Rack website, to make up the system. The etrailer site had not been updated to include the compatibility with the Pioneer System yet for the Bronco Sport. The parts were actually in stock and ready to ship! I’m giving the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform 5 stars for ease of assembly and product quality. Assembly and install took about 3 hours, with several fore/aft adjustment to allow for complete operation and clearance for the Bronco Sports moonroof. This rack is the foundation for the complete “overland” conversion to come!

Excellent product, very well packed and no missing hardware. The instructions are a bit out of date but nothing you can’t figure out. etrailer did their part too. Ordered on Monday and had it put together on Wednesday.

Excellent! We use it for a rooftop tent. Our Jeep has a 3.5” lift and 35” tires so it is a long way up there. The rack is definitely a keeper and trailer seems to have the best price.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

I installed this on a '99 Lexus LX470 (Toyota Land Cruiser 100 series). I have had 0 issues with this rack and the options are seemingly endless. Here is what I've had mounted to this rack: 1- Black Oak LED 40" light bar using Rhino Rack brackets 2- Max Trax recovery treads 3- Jerry Can 4- Mountain bike - had to spend 100 on correct rail/fork mount, but it works flawlessly 5- Oz Tent Foxwing awning - used Rhino Rack Foxwing brackets 6- Shovel / Hi-lift jack dual brackets - only had shovel mounted 7- Tepui Roof Top Tent - Kukenam Ruggedized - used Eezi Awn K9 brackets and made it super easy to mount. My ONLY complaint is that for a rack this expensive (all racks are expensive) I wish they would rivet a metal "RHINO RACK" logo to the product. The decals start peeling after a short time and makes a really great quality rack look cheap. I will also add this note: Add-ons and all the extras get really expensive. It's like stepping into vacuum for your money. Once you get over the initial investment, you've only just begun. Now, you've got to mount things to it and that's where you really have to PLAN IT OUT AHEAD OF TIME. You need to have a game plan of what you want to do with it, otherwise you will have a boat load of bolts/brackets/clamps etc. that you end up not using. There are usually more than one way of getting something attached. So, ask yourself if you really need that 100.00 bracket or if a ratchet strap will do the same thing. Also, don't get overcome by the "coolness" factor. Do you REALLY need that Hi-lift jack, or do you just want to keep up with all the Jeepsters out there. If you take that approach, you'll be ahead of the game. I deducted one star for the decals and for all the accessories being so overly expensive....but they DO WORK REALLY WELL. This is not a mark on Etrailer. Etrailer is AAA+ Their customer service is top notch and have always provided me with great communication and service.

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Basket

Rhino rack pioneer platform JA8200 for Land Cruiser 80 Series. Awesome product, aluminum high build quality, low profile and round edge design that matches well with 80 Series's curvy line. I decided on this rack for #1 functional reason, "fitting into my garage" after my rig's been lift and upsized tires. #2 reason is aesthetics fitting the LC80. ARB was too high on profile, other one piece design was too bulky for shipping. Great product. The only minor issue I had was the 80 Series has a bit curvature (~1/4") on rain gutter, with highest point at the middle area. This requires a bit adjusting/playing with foot positioning and use of shimming. eTrailer customer service was great, with Bryan sent me the missing part once notified. Great place to buy with free shipping.

First of all congratulations to E-Trailer on the shipping. I ordered my pioneer platform and the full rail kit at the same time. The rail kit was not in stock and had to be shipped from the manufacturer. Worried that the shipment might not make it time for my upcoming desert trip, I called etrailer and voiced my concerns. Long story short, I was given a ship date that wouldn’t have given me much time for the install and I ended up getting it four days earlier. Super easy to install and very strong. I’ll have to give a follow up review after I put it work in the coming weeks.

    I'll start out that any time you're adding a light bar, roof rack, platform, etc. to your vehicle, there is going to be a certain amount of wind noise involved. The Yakima LockNLoad # Y05044-39 is going to be especially loud because it has cross members that run right to left on the platform, where the Rhino-Rack # RR42114BF has cross members that run front to back. For this reason, the Rhino-Rack won't have the same type of wind noise that you would experience on the Yakima platform, but...

    Yes, you can mount a Thule ski rack, like the SnowPack # TH7326, to the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform # RR42114BF by using accessory bars. These come in a 24" length # RR43232B or a 48" length # RR43137B. The 48" bars will be about 10" wider than the platform itself so if the mounting locations on your Thule ski rack are adjustable or mount within 24" I recommend going with the shorter option.

    The Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform # RR42114BF that you referenced can fit your 2016 Toyota 4Runner with raised side rails but you'd need to install a set of crossbars on the vehicle. For that we have the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX100 which would be a great option. You would need to remove the basket you have currently. Another option is the Rhino Rack Pioneer platform tray part # JA9328 which is much better than the tray you referenced but it can attach...

  • How To Use a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack on a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
    The best way to install a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack on your 2018 Chevrolet Equinox would be to use a model that attaches to standard crossbars, the part # RR42114BF which is 48" long x 38" wide or the part # RR42115BF which is 58" long x 47" wide. These are actually the only two models of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack that can be installed on a standard crossbar.

  • Will Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars Fit 2018 Toyota 4Runner With Factory Crossbars
    You should have no problem using the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars - 48" Long x 38" Wide # RR42114BF on your 2018 Toyota 4Runner with factory crossbars. These platform racks fit standard bars that are up to 3-1/8" wide and up to 1-1/4" tall. I am almost certain your '18 4Runner's factory crossbars have those dimensions but I highly recommend measuring first just to be certain.

  • Compatibility Of The Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack With 2017 BMW 340i With Factory Crossbars
    Yes! The Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack # RR42114BF will work for your 2017 BMW 340i with the OEM Crossbars because the Pioneer Platform fits round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. This rack doesn't need a t-track or anything as it just clamps around the crossbars. I've included a video to show you what the Pioneer Platform is all about!

  • Rhino Rack Roof Cargo Basket that Has Railing that Runs Around Entire Basket
    I have a similar roof basket I can recommend, but the part # RR42114BF cannot have side rails added to it. The Rhino Rack part # RMCB02 is similar sized but has a railing that runs around the entire basket plus a fairing on the front to divert air over the basket. I attached a review video for this basket for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Yakima LockNLoad Work On a 2020 Subaru Outback
    I do have an option for you but the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack is not compatible with a 2020 Subaru Outback. That said, you can use the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack part # RR42114BF which the Yakima LockNLoad is based on. It will attach directly to the factory crossbars which will be the only method of attachment for this vehicle.

  • Which Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Rhino Rack 58" x 47 " Pioneer Platform # RR42115BF is a confirmed fit per Rhino Rack for your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon but I think you would have issues mounting this. We have not had the opportunity to test this out ourselves to confirm. With this being wider than the cross bars the outside mounting location is too wide for your crossbars. The center of the outside mounting location is 3-5/8" from the outside of the platform. You would not clear the side rails that your crossbars...

  • Is There An Awning for Thule Square Bar Crossbars
    The Thule HideAway Awning part # TH490008 is what I recommend for the Thule Square Bar Crossbars. The only other options would require upgrading the roof rack as they require an integrated channel inside the crossbar. The Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning part # RR32133 could be used if you also purchased the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack part # RR42114BF but these are your options.

  • Which Platform Roof Tray for Factory Crossbars on a 2018 Ford Expedition

One option is to install the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars 48inch long x 38inch # RR42114BF which fits most factory crossbars.

  • Mounting Roof Tray To Yakima Jetstream Bars
    The T-slot channel dimensions of the Inno Shaper 80 # IN568 are 7/8" wide x 7/16" deep and the channel opening is 7/16" wide. I have included some diagrams to help with the mounting dimensions. Without modifying the T-bolts it seems that we will not be able to get a fit. We do have the Flat Floor Design Platform that will fit. The Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform # RR42114BF wraps around the bars. These tend to be a bit easier to install in my experience. This Platform will be...

  • What is the Best Rhino Rack Platform Configuration for my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
    The Pioneer platform part # RR42114BF is just a little to wide to attach properly to the JA7973 kit that you mentioned. I do however have an excellent solution for you that will look nice. It starts with using the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRVA118B-2 these are black so they blend in well and are 46" long.
