Roof Rack Recommendation for a Cover Master Camper Shell with Premium Headliner


I have a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado that has a Cover Master camper shell with the premium headliner. Every rack I have seen states “ without headliner”. Is there a Rhino rack system that will fit a shell with headliner installed?

A headliner has some give in it and the parts of roof rack mounting feet that go on the inside of the camper shell need to touch the structural surface of the roof. The headliner is in the way so what you can do is trim the headliner in the 4 places that the hardware will be on the inside of the camper.

For this I recommend Rhino-Rack roof rack # Y03-330. It will sandwich the roof of the camper shell and the external feet will mount to the top part of that sandwich. But like I said the headliner will have to be trimmed away in the footprint of the mounting hardware.

This roof rack has 59 inch bars. There are other systems with different length bars that mount the same if you need something other than 59 inches.
