Great product and easy installation. Much better than the Thule factory racks that came with the leer truck topper rail system. Also like how they can unlatch! I hauled a fishing kayak and a Yakima rod coffin case all the way from Florida to North Dakota. Racks are strong.


The rack is great. Well made with quality components, and compared to other brands, a very good value. I purchased the rack(s) to go on the top of a new Leer canopy with factory installed rails, supplied by Thule. The Rhine Rack cross bars are a great and less expensive alternative to other brands.
My only complaint is that the Thule rails/tracks require the removal of end caps and mounting bolts to install the crossbar mounts, and that requires breaking the watertight sealing installed at the factory. That’s not the fault of Rhino Rack. However, if they could develop a mounting system (ZwifLoc?) that did not require access to the track from an open end, it would be SO much better!



Well, some time has passed and I’d have to say that I stand by my earlier review. Same quality and value, and the same annoying need to removereinstall end caps on Thule tracks. If Rhino Tack can develope a system that lets you mount the mountfeettower from the top of the track it would make it so much easier add or remove items from the tracks. If Thule could make the end caps snap into the end of the track somehow, that’d work too.


Product fits the Thule rails on the Leer camper shell on my 2019 Tacoma. Had to remove the back mount end to get the rail nuts on as the rails did not have a slot to fit the nuts in. One nut that attaches the feet to the crossbars was machined wrong but there were enough extra parts to get around the problem. Shipped via USPS which was slow and hard to track. I live in rural Iowa and had to go to town to pick up as the carrier just left a note saying it was at the post office.


I ordered a pair of Rhino Racks for my F 150. I wasn’t sure the size but said I wanted them for a Ford F 150. When they arrived, they were too big. I called and the lady told me they would exchange them but shipping would be like $90! What a joke.


These quick-release roof racks are great and easy to use. I have them set up on my topper shell and attached to a roof top tent. When I take the tent off I leave the bars attached to it. Perfect for what I needed.


They (Rhino-Rack) shorted my order by 2 of the aero rubber strips in one of the boxed cross bars. Other than that, it was a great deal. This roof rack fit onto my Thule tracks with no problem. Easy install too.


I put this on my 2020 Ford F150 that has a ARE topper on it. I didn't need the tracks that came with it, as I had ARE put their factory Yakima tracks on it when I ordered the topper. Easy to install and goes on/off quick and simple.


This rack is great, east to install, solid bars and looks awesome, it was intastalled on old tracks and fit perfectly! Pics before and after.


This review is for the install. I will update it after I have had these rails in service for a while and can judge how well they stand up.
First the instructions were very clear and I had no issues performing the assembly and installation.
Once locked in place they appear to be very stable and secure.


Every part was in the box, just like I needed. I took my time, followed the instructions, and now the bed of my Hyundai Santa Cruz has bars that will support my 2 bikes.


Great rack. I used on Yakima tracks on my Snugtop and had absolutely no issues with install.


Had to preform some minor modifications to install new Aero-Bars. A few of the Vortex, rubber strips were missing from the packaging. All issues were resolved with lightning speed, thanks to customer care! Will definitely shop here again in the future.


Went on quicker than I thought. Just minutes, not hours. Also looks great! - (72 year old!)


Greay Product for my RoofNest Roof Top Tent!



Great quality and easy install, had Thule system prior and these are less cost and far better quality.



Awesome and still like new, Just bought a new Raptor and they looked so good I reused same ones.


Good stuff...equal-to or better-than the competition...without the gouge-pricing.


Good product with no complaints


The order came quickly and all parts were there. Installation was easy and the racks look great on my truck.


Overall glad i finally got my cross bars after several weeks of waiting. One thing that is and was supposed to be with the bars are the “Rubberized Vortex strips” in the top channels. Which help with the wind noise I’m going to have..

Sorry to hear that. Customer Service will contact you.


We received our order very quickly and it was exactly what we needed. It was also fairly priced. Highly recommend.


Rhino Rack was exactly what I was looking for. It was easy to install and rode quiet carrying my kayak, ladder, lumber or anything else you might need a roof rack for. Another great benefit was the price compared to other manufacturers.


easy to install. even better was the price. every other complete roof rack system was several hundred $ more than this one and this one functions just as well as those do. im very pleased


Excellent product, price and customer s upport


This came wrapped in cardboard the originally housed a bathroom sink. I am missing parts and very frustrated
