Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Main

The low-profile, aerodynamic Rhino-Rack RVP roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on your vehicle's roof quietly and with little wind drag. It's designed for installation on a vehicle with fixed mounting points (or flush side rails with internal fixed mounting points). The rack's Vortex Aero crossbars have built-in rubber strips that disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bars are constructed of aluminum so they won't rust. These bars blend seamlessly with the support legs to provide a from-the-factory look, and they are custom cut to your specific vehicle so they require no adjustment during installation. The legs also include built-in locks that protect your gear and the rack from theft.


Aerodynamic Design

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Design

The rubberized Vortex strips in the top channel of each crossbar disrupt airflow with evenly spaced, wave-shaped grooves. This carefully controlled turbulence minimizes wind noise and whistling, so you won't need to add a fairing to your roof rack. And the slim, elliptical Vortex Aero crossbars cut through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.


Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Closer

The RVP roof rack has a flush-mount design so the crossbars terminate at the legs with no overhang. This provides the rack with a seamless, from-the-factory look.


Strong, Durable Construction

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Construction

The Vortex Aero crossbars are made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with H-shaped internal extrusions. These extrusions strengthen the bars without adding a significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bars won't rust so you can leave them on your roof year-round.


Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Bar Close

The rack's durable, glass-reinforced nylon legs are designed to stand up to cargo loads and weather extremes. They're also UV treated to withstand long-term exposure to sunlight.


Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Channel and Clamp Accessory

Each crossbar has a built-in C-channel so you can carry channel-mounted accessories such as bike racks, watersport carriers, and ski racks. The Vortex strips in the top channels come in pieces, so they're easier to adjust than a single long, continuous strip. You can remove, trim, and re-insert the Vortex strips around the mounting hardware of your accessories to keep the crossbar channels capped and quiet. Replacement strips (sold separately) are also available if you remove your accessories or switch to clamp-on accessories.


You can also attach most clamp-on accessories to the bars, and the Vortex strips provide a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on them.


Built-In Security

Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Security

Locking covers on each support leg let you secure accessories mounted in the crossbar top channels. These sturdy nylon covers give the rack a finished look and also help secure the rack to your roof. The cover locks are keyed alike, so a single key opens all locks.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I purchased these crossbars for my 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The fit guide from Rhino Rack indicated that they are "not confirmed to fit." However, I took a chance and they fit perfectly. They actually look like they were installed at the factory.


Comments
Thank you for your review. This has sparked us into asking the manufacturer to test this on a few of these models and we have added it to our fit guide! Thanks for your help!
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/13/2021

The Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars works well after many uses this past year. The only problem is that it makes noise in a crosswind, and while I thought I could leave it on the Jeep permanently, I have to take it off to eliminate the noise. To be fair, there is no set uf bars like this that will not make noise... unless they are OEM designed and installed. No one I have ever met with after-market bars installed has ever said there is no noise. They all have noise.


Comments
I bought these Rhino Racks in 2019 for my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. I had searched around extensively and looked at all the major rack manufacturers for racks that would integrate into the design of the Jeep and meet these requirements: 1. Racks with a rounded end “aero” design that looked integrated into the vehicle’s appearance 2. Make no noise while mounted and remain mounted on the Jeep when not being used 3. Easy to install using the OEM roof rack fittings and easy to remove if and when necessary 4. Provide clearance above the rear roof “fin” antenna if a large flat object were to cover the racks 5. Be strong and not slag in the middle under heavy weight. 6. Have some rubber grip on the top the rack itself to keep loaded surfaces steady 7. Purchased at a reasonable price point in relationship to the vehicle. After 3 months of searching, I decided to purchase the Rhino Racks from E-Trailer. After more than a year of practical use, I can say that purchasing these racks were a good decision. They fit all but two of the seven requirements I had regarding wind noise and periodic rack removal. Regarding requirement #2…wind noise… I have found there is no roof rack made today unless it is an OEM installation that will not make noise. No matter what they say, they all make some kind of wind noise. The reason for that is that wind direction, strength, and outside vehicle design all impact how wind is channeled around the vehicle and produces noise. So, to eliminate wind noise, requirement #2 is not fulfilled. The racks have to be removed…but even while attached, the wind noise is less that other racks. Regarding requirement #3…easy rack removal… these racks only met 50 of this requirement. To remove the racks, you have to unscrew the top racks from the base mounts. While some of the more expensive racks Thule, Yakima have easy to remove schemes, the Rhino Racks require two steps to be removed. This process will take only 15 minutes. First, you have to unlock and remove the end cover caps, and second, you have to unscrew the top portion of the rack from the base mount with an Alan wrench or socket tool. The base mounts are installed into the OEM roof rack track sections, and can be left there when the top racks are removed. They do not make any noise, because plastic caps cover the attachment bolts. Also, the Alan wrenches for each rack can be stored inside its locking cap. In addition, both roof racks can be stored easily in the back cargo area of the Jeep when removed. Regarding load carrying stability… these racks have always been up to task, regardless of the weight or weird shape or size of the load. Using the right support equipment, the load can always be tied down and securely and safely fastened to the racks without contact or damage to the load or the vehicle. The customer agents at E-Trailer were responsive with excellent telephone help in clarifying some of the installation instructions. They even sent me revised diagrams and an extra part. I can truly say that the folks at E-Trailer were enthused at answering my questions and supporting my purchase. So, all things considered… I like these Rhino Racks, E-Trailer, and I recommend them for the price. They look good on the vehicle, and they fit five out of the seven requirements that I had. They are not that hard to install, and removal is not that much of an inconvenience when you have the tools at hand. I am glad I bought them and would buy them again given the same cost and design requirements.

I love this rhino rack it'so beautiful so good fits perfectly for my jeep grand cherokee all hardware is good I really love it and I totally recommend it I totally recommended fits perfectly the price is so good don't even waste your time with something else just go ahead and buy it and it was fast delivery 5 star for sure




by:

I love these racks! They stand apart for the appearance and capacity of others in the industry. I recommend them highly.


Comments
They have been working very well over the last year. They have not sagged under load, and are fairly quiet for wind noise. I also note that the finish is very tough and have not seen any deterioration from many machine car washes. I really love the neoprene s that prevent shifting of the load as long as it is tied down. I still love this product!

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I purchased a Rhino Rack RVP Roof Rack (RRRVP27) for my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. The product installation was straightforward and the crossbars have a sleek finished look. I use the crossbars in conjunction with two Thule Sidearm 594XT bicycle racks and the setup works great.

I appreciate that the product blends in nicely with the look of the vehicle as the crossbars do not extend past the roof line and that security locks are included with the system.

One drawback is that the crossbars, which are designed to be whisper quiet, whistle while driving. I have a panoramic sunroof which may be a contributing factor to the increased noise levels and this may vary with a traditional roof.


Comments
Unfortunately, a certain amount of wind noise is unavoidable once a roof rack is installed on a vehicle. To minimize the noise caused by wind turbulence, make sure the rubber strips are installed on the top and the underside of the crossbars. Any gaps in the strips will allow the wind to catch, and will cause noise.

Just wanted to say thanks. The Rhino Rack crossbar kit arrived custom fit for our 2021 Grand Cherokee. Solid, fits perfectly. etrailer's video for installation was a huge help.

Great price and value, Locks included! No wind noise and they look pretty sharp. Shipping and delivery could not have been smoother.




by:

top quality materials, instructions could have been a little more detailed but it was pretty easy to assemble/install otherwise. I wish Rino-Rack have a silver/brush aluminum version instead of only black (the box actually shows a silver rack). Haven't driven with the racks installed yet so I don't know how quiet they are. I have a set of Thule Aero bars that are whisper quiet so I'm hoping these are the same. I would recommend.....


Comments
Excellent product at a substantial savings compared to Thule and Yakama! I leave the racks on my Grand Cherokee all year round and there has been no sign of color fade or sun ware. Only wish would be for a two tone option vs all black. Keep up the great work!

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee

This is an excellent product for my 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The order was delivered in 2 days. I received all the parts with clear instructions for assembly and installation. The installation was easy and they look very clean on the vehicle, as opposed to the Mopar rails that extend beyond the bases. The only question I had was I'm not sure why there is storage for the included Torx wrench in the base when you need a 10mm socket to both remove the rack/bases assembly from the metal/rubber mounts and to attach the plastic covers for when the racks are not in use. The Torx wrench is only for completely removing the mounts. Maybe just so you won't lose it. I found the online videos very helpful as well. I also purchased the 27" ski rack which is also an excellent product and will hold 6 pairs of skis if they are back to back. I haven't used it yet but I believe there is enough height clearance to mount one ski face down without the ski binding hitting the roof. I am very happy with etrailer.com for providing everything needed from materials to installation support.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Product arrived exactly as described and several days faster than I could find it shipped on Amazon. Simple installation with included instructions and online videos. The rack seems to be very sturdy and quiet thus far, I paired it with a Yakima Frontloader bike mount and it fit perfect. This product fits better and looks much better than other crossbars on the market that extend past the sides of the vehicle.




by:
2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Rack well constructed, excellent fit. However, I agree with previous reviews that the tamper-resistant security fasteners need to be replaced with socket head screws and call it a day. Think about it - torque specifications are given for the fasteners, but who has a set of tamper-resistant sockets for their torque wrench sitting around. And the small tool that is sent is a poor choice; how are you going to get enough torque on the screw?. The safety of the items that will be carried are in much jeopardy. Anyway, I replaced the security fasteners with socket head screws, but note - the holes in the metal adaptor are too small for the socket heads to go through, so some mechanical aptitude has to take over. If you go with socket heads, you'll need to use 8x20mm for the rear because of the adaptor configuration. Again, really happy so far with the rack quality and fit, but the security screws have got to be reconsidered.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I received my order very quickly. Installation was a little tricky, the included bolts for rear were too long so I used the factory bolts instead. The rack fits well, is very sturdy and wind noise is minimal. The quality is equal to the more expensive brands that I have used in the past.




by: 02/13/2021

The product is first rate, the only issue I had was the bolts provided to mount the brackets were to short. I had to use the factory ones. Other then that I'm very pleased!!

Rhino Rack RVP fit solid and perfect on 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Keyed mount a huge security bonus. Install time about an hour and ready to load up for adventure. Totally solid mount - and no road noise at all. Delivered in a well thought out package to ensure no damage at a fair price. Couldn’t be happier. Well done Rhino Rack and trailer!




by:

These are really nice and well made. Came well packed, no damage and no parts missing. It took me around 2+hrs to install. The Cross Bars, there is a hole to put a Phillips Head Screw into attached the Locking Leg (see the instructions) one Cross Bar I had a really hard time getting the Phillips Head Screw into it, took a lot of effort but it did go in, the other Cross Bar I could get those Screw to go into it, I took a drill and re-drilled holes, no problem after that. It also came with a foam pad for the brackets not sure if I was to use this or not but I did and it fits well onto my 2021 Jeep CG Trailhawk. The Vortex Rubber was somewhat difficult, install it before you put the Cross Bars on your vehicle. The rubber skirts those little 4 rubber things that are straight up that go into the brackets were also difficult to install. But with all this said, I still give 5 stars, very well made and it looks great on my Jeep

Overview
-------------
I purchased
these for my Grand Cherokee after looking at options from Yakima and Thule. Only Thule made an equivalent model (aero bars that fit direct to the rails with no unsightly over-hang) but they were more than twice the price of these. I figured its pretty unlikely Thule makes a product over twice as good so gave these a shot.

Video Demo & Fitting
------------------------------
The video etrailer provides for these bars is a nice touch. The demonstrator only shows the install of the rear bar which is a good call because the rear bar is the tricky one. You should do as shown and partially screw down one side, then the other, and repeat until both sides are fully screwed down. Its tempting to just bang out one side and do the other but because the fit is TIGHT that doesn't work.

Point to note - she says that the mounts on the bars screw in with the smaller 20mm long screws and the bars screw to the mounts with the 25mm screws. That is THE OPPOSITE of what you should do (also the opposite of what the instructions say to do). :-) 25mm screws for mounts into rails is the ticket.

Getting the rubber mounts into the brackets is easy in some cases, and a total PITA for others. Probably a QC issue - just use warm water and soap to make it simpler.

I didn't have to take a mallet to the bars to get them into the mounts, they slipped right in.

You will have to cut a small section of rubber channel guard to complete the block out of the accessories channel. This isn't mentioned in the instructions. Seems a little sloppy of Rhino not to cut the rubber to the right size so that this isn't necessary but whatever.

As others note, you will strip the 'security screws' (must be a Aussie thing) if you just torque everything and rush the job. If you plan on taking the kit off and on the truck a lot,

Taking my time this took me over an hour but it was my first time.

Delivery
------------

I ordered late on the Thursday before Christmas from the very helpful Michelle S and with 2 day shipping was told to expect it on the 26th. Amazingly, the bars arrived on the SATURDAY, 36 hours after I'd placed my order. Faster than the 2 business day shipping I ordered!

Road Test
---------------

As I want the leave the bars on permanently, I really wanted bars that make no appreciable noise at speed. Did a quick highway test at up to 80 mph and couldn't hear the bars making any sound at all which is GREAT. Granted, I have a lift and AT tires - if you're running highway tires and regular suspension YMMV.

Overall
-----------

I like'em! Good value. Bit of a pain to fit but worth it.

I would have given 5 stars but the cross arms were a little scratched out of the box and the installation instructions were somewhat vague.

Great looking rack at a good price. The rack installs in less than 30 minutes and holds my toys with ease. I like that it doesn't overhang past the roofline, it looks more custom. I know I will miss the extra length when I try putting a carrier and SUP up top but I'll give up utility for looks. You really shouldn't carry more than 150 lbs anyway. etrailer delivered the rack fast and responded to my questions promptly. I'll purchase from them again.




by:

Cross bars worked perfect on my Grand Cherokee rails.
Felt saddles and rubber forward saddles do as described. Allow my 16' kayak to slide.
Like that they all lock. Covers look good when cross bars aren't installed.




by:
2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Very strong and great fit. These are way nicer then any other bars I have seen on a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

With all the windows closed you do not hear any wind noise. With the sunroof open or vented it is a little louder.

Would buy again.




by:

Great product! Fit my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo perfectly. Very quiet but I do get a mpg or two better with out them off. Very easy to take on and off though, once the brackets are attached the crossmembers go on or off in about two minutes.




by:

Racks were easy to install by my son - not so much for me - getting too old for this kind of stuff - I asked him to take over. Occasionally I will put a car top carrier up top. Mostly I just like the look of the Rhino Rack over the other premium brands. They don't sit up there like a multi-story house but rather a single story ranch home. A very subtle look with the black on black.




by:

Overall it is a pair of stable, sturdy, and low noise racks.

A minor problem is that the latex strip padding was deformed when I tried very hard to tie something on top of it. It will be wonderful if more replacable backup strips are packaged with the original order.

These rack bars installed pretty easily, blend well with the lines of my G. Cherokee and have held up well so far over the first year with them. Bit of added wind noise but guess that’s a trade off to have them.
