Rhino Rack Platform Baskets (steel mesh)

Rhino Rack Mesh Platform basket

The Rhino-Rack Steel Mesh Platform is constructed from tough steel, offering you a strong and durable transport method for all those extra items. The platforms are zinc-plated and powder-coated black, so they won’t rust or fade.

The Rhino Rack mesh platform gives the sturdy base of a conventional wire mesh basket but only increases the height of the vehicle by about 50mm above your cross bars. Often this means the difference to allow entry to under ground parking and low roof garages especially on the taller vehicles.

The Rhino Rack Steel Mesh Platform is available in a range of sizes shown in the table below. The width needs to be narrower than the cross bars and the length appropriate to the size of the vehicle roof.

Your cargo can simply be strapped in place to the basket or with the addition of a luggage bag they can provide an enclosed weather proof solution.

What Steve thinks....

The Rhino Rack steel mesh platform offers a very economical solution to adding a strong base platform to your roof, that is easy to remove and keeps the height down. It is a utilitarian product that does not have the finesse of the Pioneer Platform range but it will save a handy chunk of dollars over that option if working on a tighter budget.
