I am giving these items 3?
Because I was offered alternative products that did not fit together. Originally, I intended to purchase a roof rack cargo basket type and a spare tire holder from Yakima manufacturer that go well together, but one of them wasn’t in stock. So, after 3 weeks waiting time, I was offered alternative items via etrailer website, and I accepted them…after all, they are the experts. I got the recommended items through UPS, then I assembled them by myself. The roof rack cargo basket fit well on my car, but the spare tire holder was not compatible with the roof rack cargo basket. They couldn’t be assembled together. I submitted my claim to return the spare tire holder. Now, I have not achieved my goal to carry my spare tire. Understanding the needs and expectations of your customers is critical to maximize customer satisfaction. I am sure both products are good, but they are not compatible together, even though they were manufactured by the same company. Distributors should know better! I returned one item and I hope to be refunded.

There isnt a Rhino Rack spare tire carrier that will work with the basket however a simple u-bolt type tire carrier such as # CE22011Z-11050-2
CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers - Steel - 4- and 5-Lug Wheels - 12-1/4" Long
may be your best bet. This u-bolt is 12-14-inches long so it will work for wide tires. Similar part # CE22007Z-11050-2
CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers - Steel - 4- and 5-Lug Wheels - 8-3/8" Long
is 8-38-inches long and will fit narrower tires.

It was a breeze to install on my 2018 Ford Explorer. Two reasons why I bought this. #1 the price for the size of the rack #2 The ability to adjust the universal mounting brackets from front to back or length wise. I had tried another brand rack but the mounting brackets were from side to side and did not line up with my fixed cross bars. I used silicone to seal all the connection points. I have not seen any rust as of yet. I like it so much that I might sell this one locally and upgrade to next size up.I've had compliments on the appearance also. with the plus up sized tires and the rack. It has given the Explorer a sportier look. I definitely would recommend this rack to anyone.


Totally Stoked, well done, from ordering to shipping and putting it together to the installation.


Great product. Easily puts together and I was able to install on our 2016 Toyota Highlander OEM roof rails with no problems. The mounting brackets slide to make for a easy fit. Have taken it on two long road trips with zero issues last summer one to the montains and one to the beach. Was able to fit our jogging stroller on in the basket. Had some heavy rain on one trip and seen no signs of water getting into the rails as that was a concern of mine when researching the different racks. The high sides allowed for easy tie downs for the weather bag we put the stroller in. Seemed to add a little road noise with nothing in it but that is to be expected when hauling things on the roof but the wind deflector seemed to keep the noise down. Easy to put on and off with a single person able to lift it. Great product, great fit for the car. Plan on using it for some more upcoming trips.


My review... photos are of the Rhino-Rack 47" basket (RMCB) holding the RightLine 15 cu ft cargo bag (100S20). The photos show our 2018 Honda CR-V with dealer-installed side rails and cross bars, after our first 12-hour drive.

After dealer installed side rails, I realized they were not functional; that is, no places for ropes (who knew?! I was new to the whole roof storage world). So I had to have them add two cross bars. The cross bars cannot be adjusted, thus the Rhino-Rack 47" with its flexible mounting range made it perfect. After driving in rain, the inside of the Rightline bag was completely dry!

Only thing in assembly: there were 4 large rubber washers that I did not know what to do with.


2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek with Thule Aeroblade. The basket itself came in two pieces out of the box. The images on the manual on how to assemble the basket from two pieces into one could have been clearer, mainly how to install the four rubber pieces.
The overall quality of the basket is 5 stars but I am rating this with 4 stars for one main reason. The basket does not include some type of lock to prevent a thief from stealing your roof basket. You would have to cautious where you park and leave your car and roof basket for a long time (ie. overnight parking). However, this shouldn't be a deal-breaker since there are lots of ways you can do to secure the roof basket to stop thieves. I just wish the lock/protection came with the basket.


Wow! The "Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Cargo Basket" is a fantastic addition to my 2013 Scion xB. It is a product that was carefully designed and manufactured with quality materials to last for the life of the owner's vehicle. Instructions for the installation, care and maintenance are clear and concise. Mounting the basket to my
"Rhino-Rack 2500 RS232B - 2 Bar Aluminum System", that also included 4 locks for securing the bars to my vehicle.
I am very impressed with and satisfied with my eTrailer purchases.
Customer Service is excellent in support to meet and exceed the needs of their customers.


The rack was exactly as described. I am very satisfied with the fit, usage, and look of the rack. I highly recommend this product.

The mounting hardware is pretty long. Because my stock 4runner cross bars are thinner, the mounting hardware had the potential to come into contact with my paint on my roof. I solved this problem my using my dremel to shave about 1/4" off the bolts and about the same from the underside bracket. It wasn't ideal, but I made it work. I suspect because of the design of my stock roof rack, I would have had the same trouble with any product I purchased.


Another awesome product and smooth purchase from etrailer! Rhino Rack arrived on time for my short notice road trip and was easy to install.


Solid and sturdy. Scratch proof and corrosion proof. Easy to install. Sharp looking. Holding up well. This is my 2nd purchase of same model (have same, but larger, version on a trailer.

I actually bought two from you. Diff sizes. Love them. Very durable finishes.

Quick Shipping, easy to put together. Installed on our 2014 Jetta Sportswagen TDI with panoramic sunroof. There is not enough clearance to open sunroof when installed. I am going to look at modifying bottom part of bracket.

Overall, love the look and style for the Sportswagen.


The Rhino-Rack is a great roof rack! It was easy to install and is just the right size, not too bulky...not too small. Took it down the road and not a bit of wind noise could be heard. And, it looks great on the vehicle!


Quality made, lightweight, and durable cargo basket. Perfect fit for the 2019 4Runner. Fits directly on factory roof cross bars. Low profile. No noticeable noise under 50 MPH. Easy to assemble and install.


This is very well built and fits on our Crosstrek very well. I did go to a plastic shop and have a custom made wind deflector, to reduce noise.


Amazing and great service. Received an email letting me know personally my package was shipped. Then personally emailed me again saying they received a notification my package was delivered.
Great sturdy product. Looks great on my crosstrek too. Thank you

It’s been a year now and still working great. I’ve never taken it off since I’ve had it so it’s gone thru 2 winters no rust or anything. Recently loaded it up and drove 3100 miles round trip and it held well.
Rob - 01/19/2019


For the last 6 years I've purchased accessories from and I've never been let down. High quality, and priced low. The team at are second to none. They are always committed to helping and answering questions. This purchase I even got a personal reply thanking me again for buying from I've recommended all my friends to come here. Ordering, shipping is unlike anything in the business. This product, like all the others I've purchased, was exactly what the description says, arrived immediately and looks amazing on my 2018 Crosstrek. I can't imagine why anyone would go anywhere else to buy accessories for their vehicles. Great job AGAIN etrailer team!!!! Happy Holidays!!!!


Love it so far! And the service at etrailer was top notch. Highly recommend both the product and etrailer!


Put the Rhino Rack on a 2017 Jeep Renegade.

cargo basket assembly was easy. Also installed RockyMounts Ouray rails to mount the rack on.

Looks great. As with most roof accessories, there is some wind noise.

Really like the Rhino rack construction and durability.


This Rhino Rack is awesome. Rugged, well built, durable after one year of use and easy to assemble and install. The heavy gauge steel is rigid and stays rigid. The powder coating is resilient and rust free, and the stainless steel mounting hardware is rust free and keeps the cargo carrier secure to your cross bars. No problems as of yet. Best bang for your buck as compared to other manufacturers with similar products.

Not so good, 6 months after I wrote my original review, this Rhino rack started rusting from the inside. Rain water seeps inside the rack at the 2 piece connection points and at the rivet points. Then the rusty water leaks out while driving and makes one hell of a mess of your vehicle. Very disappointed. Evidently Rhino doesnt treat the inside of the steel tubing to inhibit rusting. Once this process starts, your done, no way to stop it. So I had to bite the bullet and toss it out.
Phillip - 06/06/2021


Great rack. Easy to assemble and install. Mine is the one that attaches to the door frame. No issues with scratching the paint or any movement. I’ve used this on many camping trips and the extra space has been great! Really like the look of it on the CRV too.


Nice well built rack for the price ! Easily installed and mountes to crossbars.


I ordered a Rhino Rack basket and Vortex Aero cross bars to go on my new 2016 Jeep Renegade. The order came fast and the products look great, although I haven't installed it yet and won't until this weekend. But come on, it's Rhino Rack so it has to be good!

I've ordered from in the past for our GMC Terrain (Curtis rooftop basket, KarPak Car Top Carrier bag, A Draw-Tite Class III 2" ball mount with a 2" ball, Class 3 & 4 Hitch Lock locking pin and a Cargo Bag with straps) and I'm thoroughly satisfied with the delivery time and the quality of the products they sell. I'll continue to do business with them and always recommend them to my friends and family.

I'll send pictures to etrailer next week when i'm done and maybe they'll show them on their web site.

Keep up the great work etrailer!

Love the functionality and looks but it makes a annoying whistle while driving and I even spent the extra money to get aerodynamic rails! I don’t know if the rails or the rack is causing the whistle.
Bill J - 07/27/2018

Some wind noise is expected with any roof mounted rack or accessory. Since you did get the aero bars, and this basket includes an integrated farring those are usually our typical recommendations that we make for our customers. The other thing you might check would be to make sure that if there are any plastic strips on the top and BOTTOM of your aero bars that those are in place as well. Sometimes there is some open space under the roof rack bars and that can be causing some wind noise.

-- Etrailer Expert Rachael H - 7/27/2018

Thanks for the information. I just looked and sure enough, there are gaps under the bars. I used what was included on the top gaps. Do the same top black covers work on bottom and if so, how do I get some? Thanks again!
-- comment by: Bill J - 07/30/2018

The replacement strips that you would need for the underside of your Rhino Rack Aero crossbars is part # RRM641. These are different than the strips that are used on the top of the bar since they have measuring increments on them. Please note this part is sold as a quantity of 1 so you would need to order 4 for a complete set for your roof rack. I hope this information helps you out, and you get rid of the wind noise on your roof rack, and basket.

-- Etrailer Expert Rachael H - 7/30/2018

Thanks! Ordering now and will update my review after I install and test them.
-- comment by: Bill J - 07/30/2018


The product went on great and complements the 4 Runner. I watched a YouTube video on installation; combined with the instructions very easy installation.


Arrived quickly, solid frame and easy to install. Highly recommend!


Received product on time-great tracking system. Took about 1 hour to assemble and install on my AUDI Q5 using the OE rack and cross bars. One word of advise - don't lose the Allen wrench that comes with the kit - standard wrench's don't work.
