What Setup Do I Need to Install a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack on My 2005 Porsche Cayenne?


Hello, I want to put a Pioneer Platform on a 2005 Porsche Cayenne with roof tracks running front to back. Please assist with the available options. If I need to use Cross Bars, I would prefer the Sqaure Heavy Duty. Thank you in advance for getting back to me.

I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars - Aluminum - 58" Long x 47" Wide # RR42115BF does require crossbars, but it is not compatible with HD crossbars. With that being said, we do carry the Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 that have a maximum weight capacity of 175 - pounds when mounted on your 2005 Porsche Cayenne. This is the exact weight rating as the Rhino-Rack HD bars # RB1250B-2.

For a compatible roof rack with the Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars, the parts depend on whether your 2005 Porsche Cayenne have factory raised side rails or factory tracks.

If your vehicle has factory side rails, these are the parts you need in addition to the Rhin-Rack Aero Crossbars:

- Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Raised Factory Side Rails - Qty 4 # RRSX100

If your vehicle has the factory-installed tracks, these are the parts you need in addition to the Rhin-Rack Aero Crossbars:

- Rhino-Rack Track Mount RLTF Legs for Factory Roof Rack Tracks - 3" Tall - Qty 4 # RLTFMV
- RLTP Leg Adapters for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Track Mount - Qty 4 # RRVA-FK1-2

The above roof rack setups will allow you to mount the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform and accessories on your 2005 Porsche Cayenne.
