Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform OR Curt Basket on 2015 Toyota RAV4?

Question:

Hello, Im interested of buying the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars RR42115BF, and since i have 2015 Rav4 and my roof is slanting a bit down towards the back and i want it to be level when i install it. My question is, is there any spacers you can recommend i can put together with the platform? Would really appreciate it if you can tell me the item name of product. Thank you so much.

The Rhino Rack # RR42115BF does not include, or offer, optional spacers of any kind. I contacted Rhino-Rack to confirm this.

I would consider the Curt # C18115-117 Roof Top Cargo Basket. It is a little longer, measuring 66-1/2". The clamp stection of the crossbar clamps opens to 3" wide and 1-5/8" tall. If you use ellipital bars you may be able to put a homemade spacer between the cross bars and the basket clamp. You can also mount the basket as far forward as possible and move the crossbars and mount feet forward a bit.

On top of this, the Curt is a bit more sporty looking and way less expensive.

Your cargo can be kept secure by using appropriate cargo control items with the basket, such as a cargo net like # C18201 or cam-buckle straps like # E98876-4.
