Just received these Rhino Rack cross bars today and installed them on the t-tracks on a RetraxPro XR tonneau on a 2020 F-250. The cross-rail system seems to be well designed and built. Rugged but not too heavy. The way the track leg body connects to the track leg base makes it easy to assemble and easy to attach or remove the crossbars, once they are set-up. Directions were good and the parts for the bases were well packaged. The crossbars themselves were shipped without any additional box or wrapping (i.e. just in the retail box) and both ends of the boxes had come open in shipment, so the vertex bars were falling out. One of the bars was a little scratched up, but not badly, and luckily the additional loose parts are packaged inside the vertex bars. So no issues there. The system seems quite nice, looks good, and I can't wait to try both the bike carriers and the kayak carries I purchased to use with these bars. I will update the review once I've used them some.


Comments
Ive continued to be pleased with this rack. In addition to bikes and kayaks, Ive also transported large storage cabinets on top of them, from Houston to Colorado, twice. The rack handled the load well. They are relatively easy to put on and take off. Overall positive experience.

Lowest price I could find. Recieved it faster than expected and everything fit. Would recommend. Installed on a 2018 Ram 2500 with Retrax Pro XR (T-80232) bed cover.




by:

Overall, super pleased with the product. Crossbars assembled with ease and installed on the truck and they look great. We are giving 4 stars for that. But etrailer could stand to put a little more effort into packaging to make sure these arrive safely at their destination. UPS dropped these off and all ends of the crossbar boxes were open and the crossbars were sticking 1/4 of the way out of the box. Crossbars are completely scratched up as it was hanging out of the box and probably rode that way all the way across the country to get to me. These things aren’t cheap so pretty disappointing that they came scratched up. etrailer — maybe spend a few extra pennies on adding some tape to the ends of the crossbar boxes so they don’t arrived scratched up next time.

This is a great product, works well and fits perfectly on my F150. I would not purchase from etrailer however, the "estimated shipping" was over two weeks delayed primarily because etrailer would not split the shipments and held all the items until they filled all the backordered items they didn't have in inventory




by:

The feet supplied with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System, which mount to the T-slot rails of my tonneau cover (RetraxPRO XR, part number T-80374), were too short. This caused interference between the tonneau's latch door (when unlatched) and the rear crossbar when the tonneau was being retracted. I asked etrailer for a remedy, and they at first claimed the crossbar system wasn't designed for my tonneau. When I proved to them that they in fact advertised it WAS designed to work with my tonneau, they claimed they had no remedy for me and they had not encountered the problem before ... which seemed to me to be unreasonable.
I then wrote to Rhino-Rack who provided information about their available spacers which mount under their crossbar feet. I purchased and installed the spacers from Rhino-Rack, and problem solved! I offered etrailer the opportunity to reimburse me, and they provided me a gift certificate to etrailer for the amount I paid for the spacers.
Overall I was disappointed with etrailer's technical advice and customer service regarding this purchase. I am satisified with the product I purchased, as modified by the spacers I obtained directly from Rhino-Rack.

Would have given this Rhino Rack 5 stars but gave it four for two reasons

1. As someone else mentioned, 3 of the 4 box ends for the cross bars arrived open. A little more tape at the ends of box would be helpful. The caps only had very minor damage. But there was a minor scratch on one bar and big scratch on another.

2. The rubber stripping is inside the hollow portion of the cross bars—good idea given the first point since you might lose stripping through the open ends of the box. Or even worse you might need to send 90 mins with a straighten coat hanger with a hook at the end trying to pull the rubber stripping out!! What a pain - three of them were stuck mid way in the tube. If you try pushing them out, they jam and get stuck harder since it was multiple rubber strips stuck. I am sure I scratched the inside of cross bar big time to get the strips out. Even though the strips we deformed maybe from heat, they worked just fine in the end.

Assembly is easy and looks good on the Retraz Pro Xr with thule Motion XT L cargo box.

etrailer ordering and customer support 5 stars.

Perfect match for the Retrax Pro XR tonneau cover. I particularly like how these detach in seconds for full truck bed access or going through a car wash. The cross bar & bike rack assembly can hang vertically on a garage hook to be out of the way when not needed. They click back in place in seconds are are fully secure when properly latched.




by:

It really was what I was looking for to haul our family bikes while camping. I paired it with the Retrax XR and 4 Yakima roof bike racks.




by:

Everything arrived as expected. Installation was simple enough. No problems encountered. An E-Trailer rep followed up with me after delivery to see if I had any questions or issues. It should be noted that I also received a message when my order was ready to ship. (Excellent customer service.)




by:

The Rhino Rack Crossbar system meets my requirements nicely. The Etrailer company provided excellent service. In fact their communication on where the shipment was as it was in process is the best I've seen.




by:

I purchased the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for my Retrax Pro tonneau cover from etrailer.
My goal was to have a low-profile rack system that would allow me to transport my kayak behind the cab of my pick-up out of the wind.
I have to say that working with etrailer has been a pleasure. I would like to thank Mr. Alex who works in etrailers customer support!
Before buying the rack system, I called Rhino-Rack to make sure the system would fit into my Retrax rails and was assured it would and gave me the item numbers to order.
When I started to install the Rhino-Rack crossbar system into my Retrax Pro rails I quickly found that the rectangular shaped nuts would not fit into the t-slots of my Retrax rail.
I contacted Rhino-Rack and spoke with Mellissa who provided very little help.
I then contacted Retrax, and they suggested that I grind the bolts down to fit. Retrax also advised that they were aware of the bolt fitting issue and were working with Rhino-Rack to fix it.
Mr. Alex from e-trailer even offered to contact Rhino-Rack on my behalf and then called me back and advised that Rhino-Rack advised I could order another bolt installation kit.
Mr. Alex, from -trailer, also suggested that I try grinding the bolts down to fit which I did.
I will definitely buy from e-trailer again because of people like Mr. Alex




by:

Great product. Super strong and easy to adjust. Love that it was sold as a kit so i did not have to create a list of materials. Just order one item and install. There needs to be more like this!!

Only negative is spare parts - i had to spend 50 bucks to replace a 2 dollar plastic cap. That was not good. That should be addressed.




by:

I have no issue with the product itself. My issue is that the product is advertised as compatible with my Retrax bed cover and it isn’t fully compatible. The crossbars are approximately a half inch or so too low and my cover latch hits them when sliding my cover open or closed.


Comments
You mentioned that the cross bars are too low and I wanted to see if you could send a picture?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 09/20/2022


by:

The best out there! I use this to hold my bike and Road Shower. They work and look good! From time to time i will need to remove them and it is very easy. Two thumbs up!




by:

Timely service but product arrived with both boxes being open and missing the vortex strip for the cross bars. I had this issue with another product ordered from etrailer recently and since I didn’t want to repackage and return I just spent the extra $XX to order the missing pieces. The product looks to be what I need and will work great.




by:

One end cap arrived damage from the box end opening during shipping. etrailer fixed it immediately by sending a replacement. Design of the bars is very good and they are easy to install and center. Very happy.




by:

Product does not have the proper size nuts to fit the XR channels.

Is this for a Retrax truck bed system? If so you would need the fitting kits to attach Item # RRRLT600

Easy to install. Received at 1pm, installed and kayak loaded by 3pm for fishing.




by:

The racks work fine, but the square nuts that fit into the slot on the Retrax rust like crazy. After a few months on the road (in summer), they rusted that bad that it made them difficult to take off. Rhino Rack replaced the bolts, but they are the same material with the same problem. I can't find any replacements anywhere, much less in stainless that would stop the problem. As a result, I don't keep them on the truck unless I know I will need them. Not what I had expected or hoped for.


Comments
Thank you for your review. I recommend taking them off and spraying them with clear coat and letting them dry for 24 hours and then replacing. This will possibly keep them rust-free for longer.

Awesome. Been looking for this for my Retrax cover at a reasonable price. Well built and looks great.




by:

Perfect fit, well constructed, easy to follow instructions, overall look is excellent




by:

Fast shipping and great price! The only set for my cover that I found and they were easy to install.

Thanks!




by:

Works perfectly with the Retrax tonneau cover. Very easy to order, came on time. Will order from etrailer again!!!




by:

I mounted this on my 2017 RAM 3500 truck bed using the RetraxPRO XP tonneau cover. The rails on this cover have T-tracks which accommodate the RLTF 3” mounts. This allows me to put my camping gear into the bed of the truck, and put mountain bikes on top of the bed. I don’t have vibration or road noise issues with it.

I looked at the Yakima and Thule products. I’ve used the Yakima racks going back to the ‘90s but they were too expensive when compared to the Rhino Racks. Now that I’ve had them awhile, I’m happy with them. I do think they’re a bit more difficult if you’re going to move them around much b/c you need to cut the rubber fill-in strips to fit, so you’re not moving this between vehicles quickly.




by:

Exactly what I was looking for and I look forward to placing a rooftop tent on it for camping this summer.
