I just installed these tracks and have not used them yet. They seem pretty solid. The install took a few hours, a good part of which was building up the courage to drill 16 holes in my roof.

With this set up one needs to take a little extra time on the layout, but the finished product looks nice.

I gave 4 stars because the extra width of the tracks first work well for me. My top falls away slightly before the edge, so the outside edge of the track has a 1/16 to an 1/8 inch gap. I don't think it shows in the picture.

I'm planning to use these with Yakima towers, but am waiting on the parts I need.

Arrived quickly which is nice. One track came with a small dent and I am missing a few o-rings. Other than that It’s good stuff

Good quality product and looks better than the higher priced Yakima and Thule




by:

Rhino-Rack Rails work great. Put them on a truck topper to work with a Rhino Rack cross rails system. Easy to install and they are secure.
You will need to apply extra silicone or caulk when drilling holes through the topper as the rubber washers on the bolts don't quite stop all leaks.
Don't forget that fiberglass truck toppers need to be reinforced to support extra weight.




by:

Excellent design and manufacturing quality. Etrailer has installation videos on youtube. Modern fiberglas truck beds and matching caps taper toward tailgate (for rearward visibility) which means the rail/crossbar will be a trapezoid instead of a rectangle. The butyl patches are messy but effective, better to place on T-bolts and mold below o-ring instead of placing on holes in cap. The M6 T-bolt protudes past knobnut inside cap enough to thread on eyenuts for hanging cargo hammock and whatever. Was pricey to get 71” rails with 59” crossbars, had to order separately, not sure why the price penalty since all parts pull from Colorado under different skus anyway.

Product arrived promptly and well wrapped! The finish and quality is much better than expected. Heavy duty!!

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


I wanted to use my Rhino-Rack bars and accessories, although I did not want a bed cover on my new RAM 2500. So I mounted these Roof Rack Tracks directly to the bed rails. They fit perfectly, I only had to separate the nyloc nuts from the plastic knobs which did not fit under the rail.


Comments
I subsequently installed a truck cap, and moved the Roof Rack Tracks to side rails on a utility trailer, to use my Rhino Rack kayak crossbars on the trailer. Works great!

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


Purchased RTC tracks to install on new truck cap, previously had Yakima tracks on old truck. Rhino track system is definitely superior to, more user friendly and cheaper then yakima. A bonus, I was also able to reuse my yakima rail riders with the Rhino track rails. Product arrive quickly and in good condition.
Reason I did not give 4 stars was etrailer sent 2 left rails, at first they were very understanding and were going to send out correct rail. Then they said no, just flip one rail around, despite directions saying to face both slots to rear. Long story short contacted Rhino Racks, they agreed to send me out correct rails.

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


Custom built a mixed Rhino-Rack and Thule bike carrier. Started with the RTC tracks, added Rhino-Rack crossbars, then Thule bike carriers. Customer support was very helpful in getting compatible parts. Took some ingenuity on my part, too, but I love the way it turned out!

Works great!

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


Rhino tracks are great - I installed on my truck topper per the great instructions that were included (see photos). The tracks flexed to meet the contours of my topper. All bolts are hidden by track and were long enough to go through topper where special knobbed nuts are used to secure. Total install took about three hours.

etrailer customer service came through to resolve several challenges on this order:
- I initially ordered Yakima tracks. There were long shipping times, so etrailer recommended different compatible tracks from Rhino that were $40 cheaper!
- the initial shipment had not arrived in nearly three weeks with no USPS shipping updates. etrailer sent a second set of tracks via a different shipper that arrived in a few days.
- unfortunately the replacement tracks were incorrect - too long and endcaps were missing.
- while eTrailer was arranging to resend the endcaps, the original USPS order arrived with the correct tracks and all parts.
- eTrailer had me keep the correct tracks and parts, and send me a label to ship the incorrect tracks back to them.

All of these interactions were made with very professional and friendly customer service staff. I felt like I was a valued customer!

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


Overall pleased with the product. The rails were solid and I was able to shorten them for my application. My only complaint is the rubber gaskets could be a little easier to apply as mine were somewhat melted in the box. Installation was not difficult assuming you can measure and take your time. I mounted some Yakima landing pads on them with Yakima feet and bars.

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


First of all, it turned out pretty well.

However,
after the tracks arrived in distressed packing (see photo), I worried I'd need to return and start over, but fortunately, the contents of the package were undamaged. Then, since the holes for the T-bolts to secure the tracks required a 6.5mm drill, I had to order one before starting the installation process. Another $x for the two drills. Then carefully measuring and double checking that there was clearance underneath for attaching the knobs, and then I triple checked the measurements again. The most important one is the 15mm measure from the ends of the tracks for the first T-bolt at each end of the tracks. The other holes are not as critical since you are able to slide the T-bolts in the track to align with its corresponding hole. I did add a bit of silicone on the holes for extra leak prevention. Probably, unnecessary. At first I thought these tracks could have been a bit longer for my camper shell on a 5' bed, however once installed, they look pretty good (see photos). Now, if I'm able to install roof basket that attaches with my new tracks, I'll be very happy.

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


Great tracks. They fit well on my 6-foot 04 Tundra Camper. I paired them with adjustable feet & crossbars from Sherpa Equipment. The combo is perfect. Thx etrailer. The tracks arrived in good condition and on time. Would definitely recommend if anyone is looking for affordable tracks.

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


Added the 63" track to my bed rails. Fairly easy installation but required some different hardware based on the application. Some areas didn't allow enough room for the knob so used washers instead with the nyloc nut from the knob. Beware the overall length is roughly 5 inches longer with the end caps (~68"). I had to cut about an inch from the rail to fit between my bull rings but knew there would be a chance of modification needed for the intended use. etrailer has great information and fast shipping.

Roof rack tracks are great and easy to install. The instructions provided online help and are very detailed. The tracks are of sturdy aluminum. These tracks helped with installation of my Uptop Roof rack.

install was easy and quick. Needed help only to tighten the bolts down. My Yakima Towers fit right into these slots and now I can use my old Yakima gear carry my ladder and kayak or bikes on my truck cap using equipment I already had.

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


I mounted these rails in a non-traditional manner (on top of my truck bed caps so that I could crossbars that spanned over my existing tonneau cover). No one I talked with had actually done this type of installation before. The only problems I ran into were: 1) I had to cut the rails approximately 1/2 inch to ensure the through-bolts did not interfere with existing cap hardware, and; 2) The "Nyloc Nuts" were too wide to use so I just substituted a nut, lock washer and flat washer to compensate. Other than that, the installation took a while but came out great. And the RRRL T600 feet work perfectly with the rails. See the attached photo for the complete installation (with bikes attached) and a second photo with the rack removed by using the quick release feet.

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


I was very happy with these bars at first. But over this past year it seems the adhesive stripping on the bottom will slide off causing the tracks to become uneven. Concerns were raised with the manufacturer but they were not helpful or kind, Would not replace stripping or track.

  • Can Yakima Feet be Mounted to Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Tracks on a Fleetwood E1 w/Aluminum Roof
    It has been my experience that the Rhino-Rack tracks are not compatible with some of the other track mount feet so what I recommend is to use Yakima tracks # Y01135 to ensure compatibility with the Yakima Landing Pads and feet. For metal roofs you would just need to add hardware kit # Y8880039. You will also need 2 sets of Landing Pads # Y00221, SkyLine Towers # Y00148, RoundBar Adapters # Y03536, and the 86 inch bars # Y00420.
