Default Rhino Rack Pioneer platform on MY16 Outback?

Howdy folks. I'm setting up my '16 Outback to do some trips into the outback and was wondering if anyone else has fitted a Pioneer platform to this model car. I'm looking at the large universal 1478x1184 mm platform, which was recommended by the manufacturer website.

Welcome jmsyd!
I don't have that particular product but have their flat wire tray, a wire roof basket, 2 sets of racks and shovel holders. I've found their gear to be very reliable.

I've got a Rhino wire basket and a pair of their roof-racks. Their stuff is well made.

I'm not sure how I'd use the platform -- seems only useful for bulky stuff that is easily strapped down.

Thanks for the info and the welcome.

I'd have to say the crossbars are not the best feature of the recent Outback models, if you want to do more than load up the odd surfboard etc. It seems that Yakima is making an aftermarket crossbar to replace the stock Outback ones. It'd be great if Rhino Rack would do the same with some of their kit.

I want the pioneer tray specifically because of all the available attachments, and I want to put some amateur radio gear up there (antenna tuner, random weird antennas etc.). I guess the basket or wire mesh tray will work almost as well.

I'm also interested in seeing how far off-road I can take the car, without breaking it.

Did you end up fitting the pioneer platform? Any pictures?

I would be interested to know as well as I have considered getting the Pioneer Platform for my 2016 Forester.
