the rhino delta roof bar system

this is the basic option, we have delta roof bars system in 2 bar, 3 bar, 4 bar and 5 bar versions. each is suited to fit different van makes and models as well as different wheelbases and van trim levels.

rhino modular roof rack

the rhino modular roof rack is a the rhino racking brands standard offering for a full roof rack. the difference between the van roof bars and van roof rack is that the rhino modular roof rack is a fun system, with both bars and rails, so it covers the whole of the van roof and its side rails help to store items better.

rhino aluminium roof rack

the rhino aluminium roof rack is the premium offering from rhino racking with regards to van roof racks. it is made mostly of aluminium so has a massive weight saving over the rhino modular roof rack. the aluminium is just as hard wearing as the steel in the rhino modular roof rack but its lower weight can make great savings on fuel economy. so although the rhino aluminium roof rack is more expensive than the rhino modular roof rack it is likely to save you money overall.
