Never used rhino bars and rack as they never look solid enough to me, get a decent steel roof rack, with a mesh floor and it will have 101 uses besides carrying all your gear easily.

Glenno, I have the 3 bars and a 6 x 4 mesh basket - cannot be happier - the construction gives you plenty of tie down points and good carrying capacity. On a recent trip to Robe the thing was loaded up like a B Double and not a problem - although I did unlaod before we did any off roading. In addition they are easy to take off and put back on and I suspend mine from the roof of the garage with all the camping gear in it - works a treat. Have had roof racks and unless you are happy to have the noisy bloody things on all the time I'd go the basket. Just my opinion.

Gday Glenno,I have 2 roof bars mounted on tracks on our vehicle and have found them very good.I built a steel roof rack that clamps onto the bars as I didnt think the baskets looked strong enough,only takes 5 min to unbolt it.Make sure you use plywood on the bottom of the rack as Wire mesh has a habbit of wearing through things.
