Recommended Roof Rack & Roof Bike Carriers for Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab

Question:

I tow a fifth wheel and I am looking for a roof rack system that I can put up to four bikes on my 2015 F350 crew cab. The roof does not have anything on it. what options do I have that wont break the bank? Just a heads up, I tried the hitch mount on the back of the camper and the force bent the hitch mount rack and slammed the bikes on the highway lol... Thanks.

We can help you with a cost-effective roof rack for the cab of your 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab. All roof racks for your truck configuration are shown on the linked page.

Since 4 bikes could easily reach the weight limit of your cab roof and/or of the roof rack you select I urge you to consider the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero rack which uses elliptical crossbars that provide a 165-lb capacity. You can choose a black bar rack, parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK190, or for a silver bar substitute # RRVA150S-2.

You can select compatible bike carriers for these elliptical bars using the other link provided. Roof bike racks are available in three general types, fork-mount, frame mount and wheel mount. Examples of each type are Rhino-Rack Mountain Trail # RBC035 and their Hybrid # RRRBC050.

The linked article on roof bike racks will help you select carriers that suit your particular bikes.

Hitch-type bike racks for use on the back of a camper/trailer have to be specially made for such use. A standard hitch bike rack meant for a passenger vehicle could easily be damaged if installed on the back of a trailer. You found this out already!
