Rhino Rack

Every 4WD that I have ever owned has used a roof rack of some description. Our new Mitsubishi MN Triton is no exception.  Originally a full length Rhino system was fitted to our NP Pajero, GU Patrol ute & 78 series Toyota Landcruiser Troopcarrier. What we originally fitted to the Troopy was a specifically designed Rhino cage to carry our OZ Tent. This was a great combination with the versatility of protecting the tent in its own basket and being able to carry fire wood and gas bottles in the other section.

Then Rhino developed the new Pioneer Alloy Platform system in various sizes. This is a low profile sleek looking unit that we decided would be perfect for our needs. The difference with the new one is that we had to down size to the mid lenght due to the fact that it was being fitted on top of the canopy.

With the new low profile design we’ve noticed that when not carrying anything on the roof rack,  because of it’s low profile and sleek design, we’re getting better fuel economy than what we got with the other rack systems. There seems to be less drag, which roof racks are renowned for. Also they are very quite with minimal wind noise at highway cruising speeds!

Being light weight doesn’t mean that it’s light on toughness. For such a light weight unit it’s incredibly strong. There is a huge range of rack systems to choose from and the staff at Rhino Rack in Rydalmere are very good at finding the right system to suit your needs!
