The roof rack is great quality and easy to install by yourself. The instructions could be slightly more detailed to clarify if/when loctite is needed or which fasteners require washers and what order to put them. Fasteners want to strip on you so be careful when tightening. Receiving shipment of all components was a bit problematic, but FVC staff was very responsive and worked hard to make the delays right. Will buy more products from them. Note: I added the additional cross members around the fan - shown in the photo below.
Some thins I love...very solid construction, the video showing the installation process, adjustable crossbars and it looks great with the Front Fairing. I reached out to Flatline Van Co for the weight. They replied with 60 to 70 lbs, plus another ~8lbs if you have the Front Fairing as well.
Overall, great product! Just a couple of suggestions.
1- You should provide or suggest using an anti seizing/anti galling product like Tef-Gel. We use this in the marine industry on all fasteners, especially stainless to aluminum dissimilar metals. It greatly reduces seizing and aids in disassembly.
2- The 3 machine bolts that hold the wind deflector to the side rails look "clunky". Better solution would be a plate tapped for the bolts eliminates acting the nuts.
3- If you provide the allen wrench for assembly, try cutting off 10mm on the short side. That way your customers will find it easier to attach the wind deflector to the front cross member. Also, it wont scratch the metal having more clearance.
Looking forward to ordering and installing on our next Van's!
I purchased a Low Pro Roof Rack - Transit 148" High Roof Extended from Flatline Van Co.and I was very impressed by their customer service. Quick to answer your questions and very quick to ship once you pass the order. I haven’t installed the rack yet because I haven’t received my van but it looks very good in the boxes!
Such a sweet system, went together very easily and looks great. Customer service was beyond what was expected. Will for sure buy from these guys again.
I installed my new Low Profile Roof Rack last weekend, and I am really happy with the product. It is very solid, looks good, and relatively easy to install. I would definitely buy this product again. The price is very fair for the quality of the components, and definitely less than many of the competitors with similar racks. The racks arrived within a few days of placing the order, despite the pandemic and Christmas delivery crunch.
