Rhino roof racks for T31


Hi everyone,

Just looking around at some roof racks for my T31. Was looking at the Rhino site and they have 3 different styles listed (sportz, heavy duty and heavy duty aero), but they all have the same capacity - 70kg.

Is it just a looks thing?

I only need it for carrying a ladder around at this stage.

Also, what do people think of the genuine Nissan roof racks, and does anyone know roughly how much they are? (T31 only please)

Thanks, Byron

I bought the heavy duty aero for my T31 due to them being wider than the sportz model.

Means I can have more stuff on the rack (surfboard and bikes etc) without being cramped for room. I am gong to be purchasing a luggage cage or pod at a later date and kept that in mind with wanting to also take my surfboard away.

I received two quotes for the standard Nissan roofbars - $256 and $340 - however they were quoted on as part of a lease package.
The bars are quiet at roadspeeds.
I have only used them twice so far for carrying a ladder.
They are set at fixed points on the loadrails - don't know if any aftermarket types would have a variable footprint.

Thanks heaps kenny.

Its good to know that they are quiet.

I think all of the available racks mount at the same fixed points.

I guess if the Nissan ones are ok and similarly priced I might just get them.
