LOS ANGELES (March 7, 2024) – The Front Runner Dometic Slimline II rack kits remain one of the toughest and most durable racks available and have been meticulously crafted to complement the rugged design and adventurous spirit of the Rivian R1T and R1S. Engineered with the same commitment to quality and durability that Front Runner is renowned for, these roof racks are modular,
lightweight, strong, and multi-functional.

Featuring compatibility with over 55 Front Runner Dometic rack accessories, the rack kits offer unparalleled customization for all types of Rivian adventures. Whether it’s heavy storage boxes, bicycles, kayaks, surfboards, or bulky luggage, the best-selling Slimline II rack can easily handle it all.

Key features of the Rivian-specific roof rack kits include high-density aluminum construction for maximum strength and durability, versatile design providing flexibility for various load-carrying capabilities, and easy installation.

The launch of the all-electric mid-size luxury pick-up Rivian R1T in 2021, followed by the seven-seater R1S a year later, marked a significant milestone in the automotive industry. Now, with the availability of the Slimline II Roof Rack Kit for both Rivian models, we anticipate an even greater impact from one of America’s favorite electric vehicles, particularly in the kit-carrying category.

Rivian has quickly established itself as a top contender in the US electric SUV and pick-up market. When paired with the functionality and capabilities of Front Runner Dometic’s popular Slimline II Roof Rack, Rivian owners can hit the road fully equipped for their adventures.

The Front Runner Dometic Roof Rack Kits for Rivian vehicles are now available for purchase at the following prices:
● Rivian R1T Slimline II Roof Rack Kit: $ 1,372.00
● Rivian R1T Slimline II Load Bed Roof Rack Kit: $1,598.00

Front Runner is a South African manufacturer of camping and vehicle equipment based in Johannesburg. Founded in 1999, the company’s product range includes roof racks, drawer systems, tents, awnings, water tanks, other transport and storage solutions and a variety of camping accessories. It all started with a handful of friends from South Africa, who were equipped with know-how in technology, design,
production and a penchant for off-road trips. After suffering from the fact that the existing equipment could not withstand their travels around the world, they developed new patented equipment and made it stronger and smarter. Today, Front Runner products enjoy a well-deserved reputation for quality, design and durability.

On May 20, 2021, Front Runner was acquired by Dometic.
