I somehow managed to score the Rhino Rack for $152.71 on Amazon, which is about 1/3 the original cost. I'm pretty sure it was a return or scratch-and-dent because the package was partially opened and there was a 4" gouge along the bottom of the rear cross bar. I just used some black enamel paint to cover it up.

The ROLA Cargo Basket was $119.59 which again, I somehow managed to get at 30% off. I guess constantly scouring Amazon eventually pays off. The basket is pretty well constructed and very strong, but it's also heavy thick steel. I would have preferred aluminum to save weight.

I also got the ROLA Cargo Net that fits the rack. I figured it was best to get the matching one in case any of the other random ones on Amazon didn't fit correctly. Also very strong and has just enough stretch to accommodate about 8" of cargo in the basket.

Finally, I ordered a two pack of Cruze logo stickers off eBay and rubbed off the ROLA logo to put that in its place. Adds a nice custom touch.

u/jchance · 4 pointsr/TeardropTrailers

I searched for hours trying to find other examples of people putting front racks on their trailers and didn’t come up with anything useful for me, so I’m just putting this out there to help other people who might be looking to add a rack one day.

When I bought my teardrop trailer it came with the connections to hook-up a ClimateRight A/C unit, but didn’t have a rack to store it on or transport it. I tried a few things:

  1. The trailer manufacturer wanted $200 for a rack and they were in another state, so I had to pay high shipping costs.

  2. Local fabricators wanted $200+ to custom make a rack

  3. Most commercial “trailer tongue racks” were smaller, triangle shaped designs without the capacity I needed, specifically to carry my generator, ClimateRight AC unit, and ideally a gas can outside of the trailer.

  4. I looked at a few “hitch racks” and actually bought one like this cheaper Highland model. The problem is they were very wide, cutting in to my turning radius, and they were structurally weak without the “hitch” beam running down the center, which I would have had to remove to mount it to my trailer frame.

    In addition, I really didn’t want to have to drill holes in the trailer frame as I don’t have the tools for drilling in heavy duty steel.

    My solution was this- Titan Universal ATV Rear Back Cargo Basket, $79 with free prime shipping at Amazon.

    It came with mounting bars that are designed to clamp an existing rack on the back of an ATV, and the 22” x 39” size were almost perfect for holding my Westinghouse Generator (last years design of this model), AC unit, and a 5 gallon gas can.

    The only thing I needed to do was go purchase longer bolts for the bracket from my local hardware store (I used ACE instead of a big box so I could buy single bolts instead of large packs, cost me $2.50 total) and in about 30 minutes I had a steel rack clamped down to my trailer tight. Unlike the “hitch” style racks, the ATV rack had a full tubular steel frame that is rigid and strong and required no additional supports or drilling- I simply used the existing mounting holes and brackets to clamp it to the frame.

    Of everything I tried this is by far the simplest and best option out there.
u/dave_the_nerd · 1 pointr/Cartalk

Thule and a couple other companies make custom and/or semi-custom-fit clip-on roof racks for most cars. They're kind of expensive but are popular with the kayak/biking crowd who use them enough to justify it.

etrailer has a few options.

There are also more generic strap-on racks like this one. I have one like that, it works fine, but the straps coming in through the tops of the doors let in a fair amount of road noise and I'd be hesitant to go on the highway because as much as I yank/pull/ratchet the straps down, I can still pretty easily yank the bars side to side. But it's fine for trips to the hardware store and around town.

No idea about the legality of what's in your video, but it made me veeeeery nervous.

u/Peakbrowndog · 1 pointr/Kayaking

roof rack. the roof rack (or rails) runs front to back, cross bars run across. neither Yakima or Thule make a roof rack for your car, so you're going to be stuck with a generic rack. Maybe something like this or this.

Ideally, you get a roof rack and cross bars. Canoes don't use J-racks. You could just use foam blocks and ratchet straps, but it's sketchy if you're going too fast or far. I've made 400 mile trips using foam blocks, but you got to be sure and tie it down well and use bow and stern lines.

Here's a great expanation of how to tie it down. It's worth buying the hood tie down things, $7 on Amazon.

u/lightningbolte · 5 pointsr/JeepRenegade

I have these and I love them. They look super sleek and work great. Super easy installation. I don't have a basket, just j arms for kayaks that I use with them.

u/jasonjavelin · 2 pointsr/4Runner

I got this one from Amazon!
Steel Motorcycle Scooter Dirtbike Carrier Hauler Hitch Mount Rack Ramp Anti Tilt https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018SCMIR4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_zX8KIxtXDNpe1

Been pretty happy with it although I had to loosen and re tighten it a few times to make it straight. If you over tighten the bolt the metal will cave a bit but overall it's been super sturdy. The anti tilt thing it comes with is trash though. I bought an after market pin and it still has some movement but wasn't terrible.

Edit: The capacity is rated for 500 lbs for the carrier but it's all about the tongue weight of the hitch. My KDX is only like 250-300 lbs altogether but I can sit on the bike with it on the the rack just fine to tighten the straps down!

u/phillymexican · 2 pointsr/Dirtbikes

If you only have one bike to transport, another option is to get any vehicle that fits your budget but make sure it has a trailer hitch attachment point!

Step two, get a motorcycle rack hitch! They’re like $50-$100 (I got mine used on Craigslist) and they can pretty much make any car with a hitch a dirt bike transport, just need some straps.

I only got a truck fairly recently so between my teenage years stuffing my TTR into my mom’s van and then using a trailer hitch attachment with my beater car before my Tacoma, I figured out ways to make it work!

Here’s the hitch I’m talking about

You’ll have better luck posting this on r/grandcherokee.

Here’s a previous post about roof racks and baskets, that I posted a while back.

I have been doing some research on roof racks and baskets lately. This jeepgarage wk2 forum is very informative. The post is about roof rack systems. http://www.jeepgarage.org/f176/wk2-rack-systems-manufacturers-list-74013.html

Although, i'll likely go with the Rola because it's less expensive and i plan on taking it off when it's not in use. https://www.etrailer.com/Roof-Basket/Rola/59504.html

u/Spiritchaser84 · 1 pointr/BeginnerWoodWorking

I haven't needed to get on the freeway with it, but I have gone 40-45 mph on some roads and it felt pretty solid to me. This was for a dry wall trip (5 sheets), not plywood.

Edit: I should point out, I made this roof rack for a Honda HRV, which came with factory roof rails and bought something like these on Amazon as cross bars. I looked into getting roof rails directly on my Elantra sedan, but some of the reviews said the ones designed for car roofs were a little less stable. In the YouTube video I linked, the guy uses a typical sedan style vehicle.

u/anonamouse504 · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

I'll check my rating, but I have a 2016 silverado so I'm confident it will do it.

Do you by chance have pics on how you strapped it down? I have strapped mine in the bed and maybe I go overboard, but the pics on the Amazon review looks like they used one strap haha.

Also what kind of bike?

Edit : is this the one? Looks more heavy duty

It's this one

It appears to be 100% identical to the rhino, but over $100 cheaper. Only difference is it says tyger instead of rhino. I didn't know the x style came in any other size. Really doesn't matter. I. The three months I've had it, I put nothing in it except my my crushed dreams of good gas milage. Looks cool though 😂

u/Boogerschmidt · 0 pointsr/Kayaking

I highly recommend the very cheap kind that just straps to your roof. 30 seconds to put on, 30 seconds to take off. I have been using this one, and I'm super happy with it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015D19SS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/dispatch_geek · 2 pointsr/ToyotaTacoma

I use a Swagman adjustable truck bed bike rack in my 2015 DCSB.

Swagman Adjustable Truck Bed Bike Rack

It fits great and is rock solid between my side bed tracks. I mount the two bikes and move it rear wheel to its respective side of the bed and I am able to close the tailgate with no issues.
The bike rack has a lock that keeps it from being undone and both bike carriers lock as well. Then I run a cable through the rear wheels, frame and front wheels that is locked into the rear tie down points in the bed.

I will be using it this weekend. If you are interested I can snap a picture of the setup for you.

u/ducksaysquackquack · 2 pointsr/4Runner

thanks! HERE is the rack i'm using and for the price, i'm extremely pleased. though due to the max weight of 150lbs, i've only used it so far to throw light camping equipment and a cooler up top. also, i wish it was 10" - 12" longer so that i could have my light bar positioned a bit futher up.

u/DNApolymerase · 2 pointsr/Kayaking

Its a 6' foot bed, but 7' with the tailgate down. I have a truckbed extender ( like this )on the back that gives me an extra 3-4' . The extender is marked with reflective tape and I usually put a red flag on the end (I hope to get some trailer lights on the extender at some point). About 4' extends past the hitch accessory. I've also put foam on the metal extender to prevent damage. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with how it worked out.

Edit: Also, the fisheye lens on the camera makes them look alot longer than they actually are.

u/robjdlc · 1 pointr/harborfreight

Did some digging and it looks like the super cheap ones (https://www.reddit.com/r/CherokeeXJ/comments/c4bex4/found_some_reviews_of_our_15_ebay_roof_rack_and/) didnt work out (https://www.reddit.com/r/CherokeeXJ/comments/c5xynn/that_roof_rack_aint_looking_so_good/) and the ebay/amazon market has leveled out.

Cheapest I currently found on amazon is still the one I bought in 2018: https://smile.amazon.com/MaxxHaul-70115-Steel-Rack-150-Capacity/dp/B073G49NPV/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=maxxhaul&qid=1570734169&sr=8-1. (Though when I bought it it was $65, currently $70.)

All theMaxxhaul, Leader, Arksen, "Direct Aftermarket" stuff on amazon is all the same thing (like, the same exact product with a different label) as the Haulmaster.

u/idokamaroq · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

Whatever you do, don't cheap out and get these like I did unless you want to spend all your free time over the next week to try and get them to stop whistling. They whistle loud at anything over 45mph. Once I get that sorted out, I think I'll be happy with these, though. I (140lbs) climbed up and sat on my basket, and they didn't noticeably bend, or even creak/squeak.

u/illintent · 1 pointr/SubaruForester

I have these and am very happy with the purchase. Super sturdy and can hold 150 lbs and they are lockable. I wanted the wide bars because we carry a large kayak and can also load other gear.


u/FRNLD · 2 pointsr/Volkswagen

How long have you had it?

The Rola is one of the ones I have been looking at.

Looks like a nice low profile. Easy attachment to the crossbars?

u/duhalbs · 4 pointsr/SubaruForester

I would get a dash cam for starters. I personally like to keep my interior clean, aside from audio upgrade in the future, I only have all weather floor mats, collapsible cargo storage & cargo net for the trunk. However, I'm planning to do a lot on the exterior since I plan to do a lot of camping & off roading.

u/panthepiper · 1 pointr/vandwellers

> Eh...I think the question was in regards to a setup for carrying a bike without a trailer. I'd be interested in it as well since a trailer is way more limiting, exposed, upkeep, another point of failure, and the associated costs that go with a trailer.

I use https://www.amazon.com/Black-Widow-MCC-600-Heavy-Duty-Motorcycle/dp/B00WFIJ362/ but need to do some work to get my hitch extended. It's pretty sketchy getting my bike up that ramp by myself - given that it's about 500 pounds. I can't open the door with the bike there too. It looks like this van-bulance has a pass through.

u/commonpawn · 1 pointr/CherokeeXJ

I am looking into the same thing.
I think the possibility is either to

a) buy a crossbar that is pretty low and mounts into the rain gutters
b) buy some gutter mounts and weld them to the rack itself

Not sure what to do yet, let me know if you find some cheap, low crossbars that mount to the rain gutters!

Here are some links i collected the last few days

It sounds like the Gamiviti or the Kargo Master gutter towers are great for Jeep XJ's, but not sure if i am ready to shell out $70 - 120 just to lower my roof rack :)

u/MorfiusX · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Not sure what if your van has rain gutters or if you can get these, but rain gutter ladder racks provide a good base to mount L Bar, prevents you from needing to drill holes, and is easily removable.

u/kittentitten · 1 pointr/subaru

Found this on Amazon in another thread: https://www.amazon.com/Subaru-Fixed-Crossbar-Impreza-E361SFJ000/dp/B008216AVM


I'm in the same boat as you, 2012 Impreza hatch. Last season I just threw skis/snowboards in the back, but I'm looking into making things a bit more comfortable for my passengers this season. Looked on the Thule website, and the crossbars alone are $500+ so this looks pretty good.

u/Riplakish15 · 3 pointsr/subaru

I installed the OEM roof rack for my Impreza. Plus, I finally installed the LED light strip that /u/cuterocky recommended. Bonus: the roof rack came with a nice torx driver.

u/micro_cam · 3 pointsr/MTB

Buy some oem subaru bars. Subaru makes really nice roof racks. Spend your extra money on more bike.

My dad bought one of those rei bikes last spring. The frame is pretty reasonable but the components are budget and if you spend a bit more you can get much nicer stuff. They will probably put them on sale for memorial day again this year too.

u/tonightinflames · 1 pointr/subaruimpreza

This is the current basket I have right now here . Only thing I did was add a camo vinyl to the fairing. The old one is here , but I don’t recommend it due to its flimsiness. The tow hook is just an aesthetic tow hook from amazon as well, it’s non functional.

u/atnawrot · 1 pointr/vandwellers

I machined some aluminum extensions that I bolted on to these roofrack feet so that I could clear the hightop. http://www.amazon.com/Highland-2006200-Black-Heavy-Carrier/dp/B0002MABL4/ref=sr_1_3?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1464196496&sr=1-3&keywords=van+roof+rack

Then used conduit tubing for the rest of the frame work. I happened across some really wonderful tubing connector pieces a few years ago that I held on to because I knew they would come in handy at some point and they helped out big time form mounting the crossbeams.

Used angle beams for nesting the solar panels.

u/mENGRn · 4 pointsr/subaru

I can answer this one! I have this rack on my Impreza. It's the Tyger rack, and I got mine on Amazon. It's a great rack. I loved the fact that it's pretty deep, but not as stylistically bland as the Yakima rack.

Edit: This one

u/FRDV · 2 pointsr/subaru

Thank you! It's a rola basket with the extension to make it a lil bigger and a yitamotor 34 inch curved Led bar. The curve of the bar matches the curve of the basket almost perfectly. I wrapped the basket where it attaches together with FiberFix just for some extra strength and also the back half of the basket is suspended over the roof without support from a cross bar so it needed the reinforcement.

u/theelampshade394 · 3 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

So you can’t see this but on the other side I have an awning attached. The crossbars that Subaru offers have 0 overhang so I wouldn’t have been able to attach my awning to the cross bars. They are cheap and affordable but really worked well for my build

u/Econolife-350 · 1 pointr/vandwellers

There are plenty of hitch carriers that work great. No winch, just a ramp. I'm fabricating my own though because I want it to withstand the apocalypse, I have a bunch of scrap angle iron/aluminum channel, and I'm cheap.

This one has great and legit looking reviews and holds 600lbs which should be more than enough for anything shy of a Goldwing.

u/2017_FZ_09 · 1 pointr/Trackdays

Have you considered using a trailer hitch mount? Of course it depends on bike weight but there are many for all sizes. Might change the handling of your truck more than you desire, but allows you to use the bedspace more efficiently.

It's a HUGE rack and half the price of Thule or Yakima. Highly recommend. I believe you'll need to purchase the crossbars for it though.

u/Xerous · 2 pointsr/JeepRenegade

I went with a very similar setup and just installed the cargo basket today! I got some decent but cheaper knockoffs of a very similar crossbar (a bit lower profile) on ebay. I had to hit em with some plastidip to black em out. ebay link

and the same rack but just another brand and a bit cheaper: amazon link

I agree the combo of low profile bars and that style basket is a great look on a Rene.

It's called Smittybilt Overlander Tent, we got it second hand from someone. It does not come with the roof rack, I bought the rack on Amazon. Its recommended that you dont have it on the stock roof rack that's built on the jeep. Tent and Roof Rack we did have to trim the roof rack down for the tent.

Harbor freight one sucks. I use this.
You can find it with free shipping. Better ground clearance than the harbor freight version and way more adjust ability. You can use it with SUV's or ladder racks too. Maybe not as much clearance as the T-bone but I haven't hit the ground with it. It's solid too. It will rust through when my Hitch rusts through.

See here: http://imgur.com/tyswKGE. I don't think I've uploaded a picture from the side since I've moved the cargo basket back. I'll dig through my phone and see what I find, but basically picture the rails and basket in the back, there's probably about 4 inches of clearance between the end of the basket and the antenna.

I had a blazer. Frist thing I did was put Thule cross bars on the factory bar. There was way too much play in the factory cross bars...so I ditched them.

Second. Look into a ladder rack. like this one. With that you can slide the boats back a bit and still have solid connection to the truck.

u/DaNPrS · 1 pointr/saab

amazon, it help with noise but does not eliminate it completely. I think before I installed the rack would wistle at ~40mph, now it wistles at ~70 with no skis. With skis it'll wistle at ~50 or so. It helps I guess, looks good too.

u/Phaedrus0230 · 1 pointr/teslamotors

Oh, in that case, you may want to consider a hitch rack just to carry a few more things without hurting the range much. You may still have to take it off for the supercharger cable to reach though... might be worth it to bring a few more things with you.

u/olily · 1 pointr/Kayaking

I have Brightlines and I love them. They're very reasonably priced. Never had a problem with them, so easy to get on and off. (Well, on, anyway. I put them on and never took them off.)

You didn't ask about carriers, and I know most people use J hooks, but I went with a more expensive carrier. I use Malone Seawings. I chose them because I'm a 5'5" woman and I needed to get the kayak up and down by myself (on a Jeep Renegade, which sits a little high). I don't think I could get the kayak up over a J hook by myself. With the Seawings, I can just slide it into place. (I use a Malone roller to get it up and down.)

u/AKmoosenuckle · 1 pointr/Jeep

We used the Surco gutter mounts for the homemade rack. They're expensive but very solid. You can see here the finished product and how we bolted them on.

This is just about the cheapest option for a decent roof rack. Other than some minor rust (Mind you I'm in AZ, so rust isn't much of an issue for me) the rack has been great. The weak link in the setup is actually the factory crossbars. They both collapsed on mine under the weight just my spare and HiLift. So that's something to keep in mind.

If you put a hitch on the Sube you can get one of these and you’re all set.

You could get him cross bars or a rook basket. I just purchased this one for my cherokee: https://www.amazon.com/Rola-59504-Vortex-Mounted-Basket/dp/B004R34HDC

It’s the normal size rhino rack. Rhino Rack Roof Mount Cargo Basket, Regular https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A5VG6Q6?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

I bought this one and it worked great for hauling the grandfather of the Helix, my Elite 250, when we went camping with my camper shell on the truck. The instructions were kind of shitty, a basic knowledge of how to use nuts and washers helps a lot because they basically just give you the parts and say go at it. I’m sure it’s not the greatest but it’s probably on par with the HF one for 2/3 the price.

Rola makes a decent one that won't break the bank. I ran one until I could do a "better" rack that really wasn't any better. It comes disassembled and you have to put together. The only thing you'll want to do is seal the joints with silicone as you assemble, keeps it from getting water inside.

Use a hitch carrier and forget about it. Much simpler.

I have a carrier that's rated to 700lbs - trailers are a pain in the ass. So I keep the BMW and rent an SUV for whenever I need to use my "bike rack".


This thing is awesome.

I bought this one https://www.amazon.com/59504-V-Tex-Rooftop-Cargo-Basket/dp/B004R34HDC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1503946608&sr=8-1&keywords=Rola+roof+basket

I paid a little less than the sticker price because one was available "used" for $100. Really the only thing used about it was a damaged box.

I don't own an FJ anymore, but when I did I had this cargo tray: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B003NBFKDK/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I also bought a Rola vinyl carry bag with it:

The only thing about it that was a drag is you can't open the rear door of the FJ when there is stuff mounted on the rack. You can still get to stuff in the back of your FJ through the window, but not sure if that will work for you. Something to consider, anyway.
