All of our racks are made specifically to fit one type of van, which means they are easy to fit, but also that they only fit one type of van.
It’s important to make sure you order for the correct van, if you get it wrong, the rack won’t fit.
Here’s what to check:
Model of van including year
This can be as simple as Vauxhall Vivaro, Citroen Berlingo, or Volkswagen Transporter. One tricky thing is that Ford make a: Transit, Transit Custom, Transit Connect, and Transit Courier, none of which are the same.
Different years of the same named van are oft..
TV and radio presenter Chris Evans asked for roof bar advice live on Virgin Radio, and Rhino Roof Bars were the most highly recommended by listeners. We were asked to fit a Rhino Kammbar system to his VW Caravelle, and we were happy to help. Rated to 75kg for each bar, these heavy duty bars are definitely strong enough for his surfboards, and we think they look great on his Caravelle.
An upgrade to the ever-popular Rhino Pipe Tube, the Pipe Tube Pro is the first major upgrade since 2005. It retains the features that made the original pipe tube popular, and upgrades to make it even more versatile.
Coming soon, the Pipe Tube Pro has a lined pipe carrier option, for carrying plastic tubes and conduit without marking them. The Pipe Tube Pro also comes with an upgraded integrated locking system for added security, and an O-ring seal to help prevent water ingress.
Let me know when the Pipe Tube Pro is available.
We are often asked for a rear door ladder to match the Rhino Aluminium Rack, and finally we have an answer. The Rhino Aluminium Ladder is being released soon, with upgraded fitting kits suitable for most popular vans.
The New Aluminium Ladders are made with robust aluminium handrails and glass-filled nylon rungs, and are more than 50% lighter than the equivalent steel ladder (excluding fitting kit), whilst still maintaining a 120kg safe working load.
The Aluminium Ladder will be available in 6, 7 and 8 step models with fitting kits that cover the same range as the classic steel lad..
One of the most common questions we are asked is if Rhino roof racks and bars are universal. Rhino racks are designed specifically to fit one variant/model of van well, and so they are not universal, however racks can sometimes be transferred from van to van by replacing certain parts.
If you are looking at a second hand rack and someone says it will fit your van, be very wary. We get calls every day from people who have bought a rack from ebay or gumtree and have been told by the seller it came off a different van, but will fit their van. This is ve..
Rhino Connect+ allows you fit a step to a van with existing parking sensors, without interfering with their functionality.
The step does this by plugging into the existing vehicle electronics, so the existing displays/audio warnings in the cab work as usual.

Transferring a Rhino Roof Rack or Bar System between two different vans is not always possible, but can be done in some cases, depending on which type of rack or bars you have, and the models of the old and new vans.

Rhino Product's new Aluminum Roof Bar – the Kamm Bar. Made from lightweight aluminium with an aerodynamic profile and an integral locking system, the Kamm Bar is Rhino's most advanced roof bar yet.

Like all Rhino Products, they have been extensively tested, and have passed a 20g crash test and gained TUV Approval.
Kamm Bars are avai..
