Parts Needed to Mount Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform to Truck Topper with Yakima Tracks  


I have Yakima rails on my are truck topper on my 2015 Ford f 250. I want to purchase and mount a rhino rack pioneer platform. What do I need?


Expert Reply:

You need a complete roof rack wtih crossbars to mount the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform, part # RR42115BF, on your ARE topper.

Since you already have Yakima tracks you can use four of the Control Towers, part # Y8890027, with two sets of Landing Pad 1, part # Y00221. Then choose the round crossbars at the proper length:

48 inches # Y00408
58 inches # Y00409
66 inches # Y00410
78 inches # Y00411
86 inches # Y00420

I have a 2015 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with SnugTop canopy over the short bed. On the canopy, I currently have a rack system with Yakima tracks, Landing Pads, Skyline Towers and 2 Jetstream crossbars. Id like to mount a Rhino Rack Pioneer platform over the canopy. Ive seen others mount the platform directly to the existing crossbars, but Im concerned about the extra few inches of height of that setup. Are there options to mount the platform directly to the Skyline Towers, so the platform is a bit lower profile?BTW, many kudos to the eTrailer team and the amazing knowledge and customer service you folks provide. Thanks!

Unfortunately there isn't a way to mount one of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platforms directly to the SkyLine Towers on your canopy. The only option here would be to use the crossbar version - either the 48" long # RR42114BF or the 58" long # RR42115BF - to clamp around the JetStream bars you currently have. I definitely get your concern with the elevated height but at least part of the beauty of these Pioneer units is their low-profile design.
