Can I Mount Yakima Platform Rack on 55" Apart Crossbars on 2016 Toyota Tundra With Camper Shell?


Question about roof racks or baskets. I own a 2016 Toyota tundra double cab 78” bed with an ARE MX HD camper shell with the crossbars positioned 55” apart center to center. I am interested in a Rhino rack platform, or something similar. Would it be safe on the two crossmembers.


Expert Reply:

The best fit for your 2016 Toyota Tundra Double Cab with a camper shell and crossbars is the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05049-39. This is 84" Long x 62" Wide.

Usually, for your truck bed, a good fit is Yakima LocknLoad # Y05046-39 that is 76" Long x 65" Wide. However, the maximum distance apart the crossbars can be to mount this platform is 54.5" apart, just barely short your crossbar distance. For the 84" long platform # Y05049-39 though, it can safely mount to crossbars that are 35" to 62.5" apart. Just keep in mind that this will overhang over your cab since it is a little bit longer.
