Ford Transit Connect

I mounted these racks on my Transit Connect about a year ago and have to say that I’m quite happy with them. Easy to mount and they are weathering well.

I tie down all sorts of things to these racks that won’t fit in the van. I would have given them a higher rating if they had come with a better way to attach straps or bungee’s. I’ve “McGivered” my own ways to make that work.

Im now looking at an awning to go with these. I’ll probably get another Rhino-Rack product, they seem to be pretty well made.

Thanks

I have a 2012 Ford transit connect and the install was very smooth and easy. Uses the factory mounting points and is a breeze. Took me less than 30 minutes


Comments
After a year of ownership I still like the rack a lot. The rubber strip is holding up great. The only thing I would improve is to make the rack slightly longer by like 2 inches or so on each side so the if I put a sheet of plywood up there its easier to hook a strap underneath. its 48 wide, and plywood is 48 wide.

I just received my Rhino roof rack and am very pleased with the super fast shipping. The rack seems very strong and it’s very easy to install. I will have to order the 3rd rail also as I had planned on adding a rooftop tent and the tent wouldn’t have enough support on the back. ETrailer is a great place to purchase from since they have everything to fit your needs and service has been great so far. Will be ordering the 3rd rail now. Thank you!


Comments
Rhino rack is holding up great! I discovered that the leaking onto the seatbelt after installing the rack was due to not using the rubber washer that was attached to the old roof plugs. I reinstalled the racks using those washers and no more leak. If anyone is having a leaking problem, that’s how to fix it.

2012 Ford Transit Connect

The RLZ01-DC I s a good solid product. In fact it is stronger than any of the competing products I looked at. etrailer's video made it a snap to install. My only complaint it that it was shipped with many of the fasteners missing. A quick call to etrailer remedied the situation, and a new parts kit was sent.
I was concerned that the height of the rack was so high that I would not be able to get my 2012 Transit Connect into my very low carport. etrailer responded to my question about this with a very good photo showing the exactly the dimensions I needed. In fact it IS too high to fit, but I have decided to keep the rack anyway and only install it when I need to haul something.
I am particularly pleased with the ability to quickly remove and reinstall (8 easily accessed screws).

2010 Ford Transit Connect

This was a perfect fit for my 2010 Transit Connect. etrailer sent out the package the day after my order and I received it in Hawaii the next day after being shipped out. The Rhino Rack is great since it's a factory application using the roof bolts. Also, the bars already have a rubber lining for surf boards.




by:
2012 Ford Transit Connect

The roof racks have proven to be very strong. They have held up well with heavy loads from Missouri and throughout the west coast. I'm glad they were available.


Comments
Its been across the U.S. three times now without a problem. This rack is strong and will carry camping gear, festival gear, and a load of product. I did replace the original product nuts with stainless steel nuts. The original worked fine but I preferred the stainless.

The rack was very quick and easy to install. It fits well and is very solidly attached to our Transit van. The materials it is made from appear to be of high quality. We chose this rack over the one offered by Ford Motor Company because of it's aluminum crossbar as opposed to Fords rubber coated steel crossbars which could rust if the coating was scratched through.




by:

Awesome product. Solid. Looks great on my vehicle.




by:

Quick and easy to install with the instructions provided for my vehicle. Came with all the parts and tools we needed.




by:

Product was as advertised. We had a problem with a missing part and etrailer addressed it right away. Outstanding Customer Service. I would definitely order from them again.




by:

My order came quickly and just as shown in the installation video was easy to install. I would recommend both this product and the company.




by:
2013 Ford Transit Connect

Product arrived quickly, etrailer is awesome, however Rhino Rack missed a couple small parts. I am waiting on replacement parts from the factory itself, no telling the wait. The bars are good quality, instructions minimal. I would suggest a plastic bicycle tire lever to help install the rubber channel. Otherwise, I am waiting on the missing pieces to complete the install and report on performance.




by:
2013 Ford Transit Connect

This is exactly what I needed and specific to my vehicle. The installation video was very precise and will give anyone the confidence to install the roof rack with ease. The shipping was also very fast. I am very happy to have found this company and site.

Love it! It installed super easy, looks great, I couldn't be more pleased with whole experience from ordering to installation. Thank you for delivering what you promised.

The rack was very easy to install works very well but there's only so much you can do with the size of the vehicle. But it was a good investment for the driver.
Thank you!

    For your 2011 Ford Transit Connect you're really just looking for options that mention connection to Fixed Mounting points on your roof- I recommend taking a look at the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack w/ 2 Heavy-Duty Crossbars for Ford Transit Connect - Pad Mount - 50" Long # RLZ01-DC, which will connect to those fixed mounting points you mentioned.

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for a 2013 Ford Transit Connect
    There are a couple of RHino-Rack roof rack options that will fit your 2013 Ford Transit Connect. If you want a traditional 2-bar set up then you can use Heavy-Duty Crossbars # RLZ01-DC. I have linked a video review for you. If you want a 3-bar set up use # RLZ01-RLZ02. In either case the roof rack capacity is 220 pounds. But you will need to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Ford for the roof carrying capacity prior to loading. To make it easier and safer to reach the roof of the...

  • Will Inno Rooftop Cargo Box Fit on Yakima Round Bar Roof Rack
    Just about any rooftop cargo box that fits on square roof rack bars will also fit on round bars.

But all of the Inno cargo boxes we offer, all shown on the linked page, will fit both round and square roof rack bars.

Since the crossbars used by the Rhino Rack heavy duty roof rack you asked about, part # RLZ01-DC has the slots in them, the awning and crossbars will work together perfectly without need of an adapter.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2012 Ford Transit Connect with Wheelchair Lift
    My first question is where is the wheelchair lift mounted? Because it could use the same mounting area/locations as a trailer hitch would. It might be a moot point though because with a trailer hitch installed, such as # 75678, the receiver will be directly below the rear fascia, with the cross tube also taking up some space in that general area, and that would interfere with the lift. Take a look at the diagram that shows what I mean. What I recommend is to install a roof rack on top...

  • Attaching Solar Panels to Roof Rack that Fits 2012 Ford Transit Connect Rhino Rack Roof Rack
    I'd recommend a Pioneer Platform tray like the part # RR42115BF to attach your solar panels to the roof rack # RLZ01-DC via the top channel of the bars. The t-bolts of the tray will allow you to easily connect the platform to the rack and will give you flat and very secure tray to attach your solar panels.

  • Does the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack # RLZ01-DC Install Completely Level on My 2010 Ford Transit Connect?
    Great question! I went ahead and called my tech at Rhino-Rack, and she confirmed that the reason why there are two different heights of legs that come with the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack # RLZ01-DC is because of the curvature of the roof. She also said that the crossbars will be even once installed, so the cargo box will lay completely flat. I went ahead and attached a picture of this rack installed to give you perspective.
