Platform Rack For 2021 Toyota RAV4 With Flush-Mounted Rails


Needing ideas for my 2021 Toyota RAV4 XLE. I’m wanting ideas and product information for a roof top platform that offers flexibility to haul items but also allows for future use to also haul bikes or kayaks. I do not currently have horizontal bars- so I need information for both the horizontal bars as well as the platform to mount. I do not want to break the bank but want decent quality. Would you send me some product info and ideas as well as perhaps the pros and cons?


Expert Reply:

We can set your 2021 Toyota RAV4 up with a platform rack, and the XLE model should have flush-mounted side rails (as opposed to raised side rails), which the rack will attach to. The best option for a platform rack is from Rhino-Rack:

- Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack # RR55FM

I like the Pioneer for a number of reasons, starting with its large 52" long x 49" wide size, as well as the numerous options for securing your cargo, such as the Accessory Bars # RR43138B and Eye Bolt Kit # RR43178.

So if this were my 2021 RAV4, I would go with the Pioneer as I think it gives you the best overall value and use out of a platform rack.
