Love our Rhino-Rack roof racks. Easy to install and looks great on my black Acura. Now I can go surfing with ease. Highly recommend!

Love the quality of the rack and the kayak mounts that I ordered. Five stars! Removed a star for the instructions and for the key for the security locks that broke the second use. The instructions ...work... but take a fair bit of patience to understand. Once deciphered, the mounting goes pretty quickly. Major room for improvement. The key - simple broke in half on the second use. No major stress put on it, just broke lol. Good thing kit comes with two keys so kudo's for that. Have a 2011 RDX. Car handles great with a 14.5 foot 55 lb kayak mounted. Driven up to 50 mph with the kayaks. No noise on the turnpike with just the roof crossbars at 80/90 mph. Overall, I love the rack system and the above two issues aren't show stoppers for me and I'd recommend them to a friend (tho I would help them with installation :).

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


This review covers the Rhino Rack 2500 Vortex Aero crossbars and associated parts (DK284, RRRLKVA, RRVA137S-2) for a naked roof installation on a 2018 Honda CR-V. Very solid racks. We just took our first trip using them and the didn't budge. As recommended, a few days after installing, I tightened the bolts a bit. I'm not sure they needed it--just a little insurance. The installation process was clear, but fairly detailed. It would be easy to miss a step, so take your time. Also, I tried a couple shortcuts in the order when installing on the car, but had to back track. So, go in the order they give you. The racks easily supported our filled "pod" and a couple surfboards, strapped side-by-side. Sorry, no photos of the rack loaded. One thing to watch out for is that our old Thule pod almost didn't fit because of the thickness of the racks. I had to loosen the bolts almost entirely. Of note: I feel that although I followed the measurements to the millimeter, the fit on our 2018 Honda CR-V wasn't exact. Where the pads sit on the roof of the car didn't align perfectly. I could have adjusted this by just re-trimming the rubber pads that go in the channels, but it's not a big deal, so I just left it. Finally, I do have one concern. The angle of final installation doesn't really protect the racks from theft very well. The plastic plate that locks over the screw would allow someone with the proper tool to get up under it and loosen the bolts. That being said, someone so inclined could also just break the little plastic door or drill a hole in it to access the bolt. So, I guess it's just a deterrent anyway. Overall, I'm very happy with the racks and etrailer.com! Despite shipping delays due to Covid-19, they were able to get the racks to me in time for an upcoming trip. I did choose to expedite shipping, but the cost was very reasonable.


Comments
The racks are still working well, a year later. Ive used them to haul small loads of lumber and other items from the local big box hardware store.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


carry my old town pdl 120 kayak on my 2014 Ram 3500 Crew cab dually. Heavy kayak. I'm a full time rider and sometimes travel hundreds of miles before stopping. Never had an issue. Front rack had a lot of wind noise but I wrapped paracord around it...problem solved. Worth the money!


Comments
Still going strong. Just make sure you tighten periodically.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I've had Thule & Yakima products over the years, with no issues. But I'm really glad I ordered this set-up for my 2021 F-150. I think you get just as good of a product from Rhino, maybe even better, for a slightly lower price. Everything feels sturdy and well made (with the possible exception of the locking covers, which feel a bit flimsy). I really like this set-up, and the precise measurements and guides made for a perfect snug fit. The rubber strip running on the upper long edge of the bars feels like it will definately help keep accessories from sliding out of place.

I am a female age 61. I has to call pretty much every step of the instructions but I was able to install myself however the measurement for the width using the measure sticks was not quite accurate foe the rear rail. Customer service was very good at assisting me until the last call they never emailed me so I could send photos. I’m only going to be transporting a inflatable paddleboard so the discrepancy shouldn’t matter much. I’ll figure it out later cia customer service next year when I put back on.

Great product, very well built, heavy duty. the assembly and settings instructions are easy to follow and when I placed it on the roof of my 2015 f150 super cab, it fit perfectly with no further adjustments necessary. I am very impressed with this Rhino Rack and feel it will probably outlast me and be handed down through many generations. Also purchasing from etrailer was an awesome experience, fast free shipping. easy website to navigate.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


The roof rack is great. But the DK432 instruction doesn't fit my Ford Edge 2019 very well. The measurement strip length for front crossbar is about 160mm instead of 150mm, the measurement strip length for rear crossbar is about 150mm instead of 140mm.

Thank you for your review. The strip size will vary with each year, make, and model.

I ordered the Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack for my Subaru Legacy. It was so easy because all the related parts needed for install all came up together so I didn't have to hunt around for them. I wasn't sure I could install this myself. It seemed daunting at first but as I moved through the instructions I was able to do it! The rack fits well and is solid and sturdy. I highly recommend Rhino-Rack!

The Rhino crossbars were shipped and received within 3 days of my purchase. Very fast and efficient! Great and solid quality. I was notified immediately when it was shipped and able to get tracking updates. I would highly recommend this company and their products. I haven’t had a chance to get my kayaks on the crossbars yet, but I know there won’t be any issues with their strength and durability. Thanks for your great service and product guys!

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


So my rating is primarily based on the product. However etrailer was very helpful in getting me the right products and getting it to me quickly! The product itself is a very good. It was quite easy to install and holds up quite well. The instructions however were a bit complicated, the instructions in the box with the clips gives you specs on various products and measurements. The box with the brackets gives you the run down on the installation. I attempted to follow it word for work but found the measurements didn't seem to match up. I eventually winged it and did measurements of my own, making sure everything was even and squared up, this is why I rated it a 4 out of 5. Beyond that I like the product. It's quite sturdy, went together quite easily. I've yanked on it in every direction I can even after I applied the basket. I do manage to get some wind noise but I believe it's primarily from the basket. Overall I'd definitely recommend this product

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I ordered the Rhino Rack for my 2017 Mazda 3 hatchback. The first thing I was concerned about was if the rack would interfere with opening my moon roof but that's not an issue. However, the rack does whistle pretty loud with the moon roof open at high speeds but that would happen with any roof rack. For my car, the fixed mounting points on the roof are not accessible with the normal molding strips on the roof. So I had to order new Mazda molding strips with openings that provide access to the roof mounting points. You'll have to research which ones to get for your car. But, luckily, they're not expensive and are easy to install. Ok, now for the Rhino Rack. I'm fairly handy and have installed roof racks before and the whole install took me about 2 hours. But it wasn't totally straightforward. The directions included in the box were for clamping a rack to the door openings and not for screwing the rack mounts into the fixed points on the roof. So they were not very helpful for my car. In addition, the towers were set up for the clamping arms, so I had to knock that hardware out of the tower arms and install the hardware for screwing down on the roof mounting points. Also missing from the instructions were the spacing measurements for the roof rack. So I had to go to Rhino Rack's web site and search for the spec sheet for my car to find the measurements. The good news is that those measurements were dead on when I went to screw the rack onto the roof. What really saved me was watching the etrailer install video for the Mazda 3 (that video was for an older Mazda 3 but the instructions worked fine for my 2017). That will show you how to do it. Once installed, the rack was sturdy and looked great. I've since installed two Rocky Mounts bike carriers and they are awesome. Although, the forward tilt of the front cross bar (fault of the car's design not the rack) made the install a little tricky and I had to tighten down the bike rack clamp unevenly back-to-front to get it to work. Just thought I would mention for anyone planning on carrying bikes.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


The boxes were delivered quickly and promptly (earlier than expected). The instructions were easy to follow. I just needed the space to lay everything out and to match the numbers to the correct items. My only issue was that the specs for my 2016 Nissan Versa Note SV asked for 144mm for the front, but in fact, it needed to be 148mm. The rear asked for 142mm, but it needed to be 144.5mm. Once I figured that out, the rest was straight forward. The crossbars are super sturdy and the rubberized top is a nice add to keep things from slipping. Thank you! I plan on installing a V-boat rack on the car rack. I can't wait to transport canoes!


Comments
Its been a year and Ive been transporting multiple canoes on top of my car. It has been great! The biggest risk with the boats on a small car is when its windy that it would rock the car and the crossbars. The crossbars have movedslipped a little bit, but its still super sturdy. Great product.

I received the roof rack kit sooner then expected. Everything arrived in good condition. The installation instructions where ok and the install went well. This is my 3rd order from etrailer and it will not be the last there customer service is the best I have dealt with in a long time. I have also installed the front receiver hitch the install went well and I am happy with the product

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Mechanically it works fine but .. the "howl" due to wind resistance is unacceptable. We did a one way trip with our kayak on top but on return without the kayak ( bare rails) we stopped to remove the roof rack due to the excessive noise. I do realize that you offered a "streamlined bar version" but didn't anticipate the loudness of the item we purchased. Is there a way to dampen that effect? When storing the assembled rails the "pads" are not fixed to the rail/legs and come off (and get separated) I have resorted to trying them on to prevent loss. Nice if they could be better attached. The roof rack arrived without "modified" roof width instructions which I assume you have now fixed.Not a big deal but it required a few phone calls to determine the correct mounting width.


Comments
Same as above. Great product excerpt as noted above. Never received a response to, “ is there away to dampen the wind howl?”
Phil M - 08/21/2021

Thank you for the follow up. The square bars can sometimes be noisy compared to aerodynamic bars that deflect the wind over the bars. The good news is you can add a wind fairing to your roof rack with part # RRRF4
Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 50" Long
$99.22
which will help to deflect the wind to eliminate some of the wind noise.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought the roof rack to carry kayaks back and forth from Pennsylvania to Florida. The rack is solid and performs that task very well. My plan was to take the rack off and on but I decided to just leave it on. I do notice some wind noise since I've added the rack but it does not distract me and I would say that it is not excessive but it is noticeable. I did have problems during the installation. I mounted the racks on a Ford 250 super duty. And the instructions were very clear as to where the feet that's support the rack where to be installed. Plastic strips are cut and the feet that support the rack on the roof push up to the cut plastic strips and that is what determines placement. I read the instructions several times and had seen an installation on another truck owned by a friend of mine. When I pushed the feet to the proper position I could not attached the clamps from the rack feet to the rain gutter on the truck which holds the whole assembly on the roof. They were too short. I spoke to Etrailer and a consensus was that I had cut the strips correctly. Etrailer's input of course was over the phone and they could not actually see or measure anything that I did. Nevertheless, in order to install the rack I had to move the feet on each side a bit closer to the rain gutter on the truck. I did not think that this would make any difference and based on the performance I have not noticed any problems. I would have given this product and excellent rating if I did not have to deal with the little problem that I had with the fit. As I said I have not taken it off the roof and I reach up and check it now and then and it's as solid as the day I put it on.


Comments
The rack works fine. I reach up and check it now and then and I have never had to tighten it after the initial installation. Completely satisfied.
