Review of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform


Today, we'll be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack part number RR42114BF. Now our rack is made out of a non-corrosive material, which means you won't rust or fade over time, and it has a nice aerodynamic shape, which means that it's going to reduce wind noise and drag. The strong, durable material that the rack is made out of the last, should we carry the maximum weight capacity, although you always want to check your vehicle's owner's manual. Now the pioneer platform rack is compatible with many Rhino-Rack accessories that will fit all of your load solution needs.The universal mounting hardware fits round, square, elliptical, arrow, and most factory crossbars. Our Pioneer Platform Rack measures 48 3/8" long by 37 1/2" wide by 1 1/2" tall. This also comes in many different size varieties.

For more information on that, just look at etrailer.com and the search bar, search Rhino Rack tinier Platform rack.Now that we've gone over some features, we're going to show you how to get this installed. We've already got three of our four brackets down and secured two is just going to show you this back passenger side here. We'll start by taking this bracket, we're going to go on the middle section here, we're going to take the bracket, we're going to stick it up under our crossbar. We've got that in place. We'll take our metal bracket with our two thumb screws, fit it down in there, snap it in place just like so.

Now we're going to take our next bracket, insert our thumbscrews into our two holes and then tighten it down with our included tool.Now we do have another option on how to load our Pioneer Platform Rack onto our vehicle, it's going to be our T-track mount here. Now this will be great for any kind of vortex bars you have, like you see here where you can take that weather stripping out and some of your factory crossbars can actually have that as well.So we'll start by removing a portion of the weather strip, we'll set that off to the side. Now we'll take that original foot pack that we would use here, and we're just going to unscrew our bolts, and we'll set those off to the side as well. We'll take that bottom metal bracket and we will just set that off to the side if we want to use it later. Now we've got our two remaining pieces here, we'll start by taking our bolt for our T-track, we're just going to place on our flat washer, take our two remaining pieces and set them up as we would.

We're going to place that bolt through the center of the two and take our nut and start to tighten that down, so it's going to sit just like that. Now with it all piece together, we'll slide our bolt right into our T-track there, and just slide it on over. Now once you get it in place, you can tighten it down and that's going to complete our look at the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform Rack part number RR42114BF.
