Ladder was installed in 11 minutes, super easy and looks fantastic. Not only looks good, but works great as well to get to the roof of my sprinter. This company has been great to work with and will continue to do so into the future on all my builds. thank you so much FLVC
Purchased both the low pro rack and low pro front fairing.
I installed the rack a few weeks before the fairing. Honestly I did not hear any additional wind noise with the rack and crossbars before installing the fairing.
However soon after I installed a front forward solar panel I did notice a bit of wind, not huge though. I then added the fairing and the small bit of noise I did notice went away. The photo does not show it, but the low roof model comes with what looks like a light bar mount. Always great quality from these guys.
Best ever amazing and affordable!
Very easy install on a 2016 Low Roof Sprinter 2500 with after-market rails (VanTech). Took less than an hour to get to get the side and cross bars set-up. No special expertise or skill required: if you can screw a bolt in, you can do it. Was able to fit 2 Newpowa 175w solar panels vertically in front with about 1/2" to spare across (max width between the rails is about 53 1/2"). Not only did they fit the panels but they are also flush with the top of the rack. One nice feature of the rack is that the 6 rails, which you can mount almost anyway up and down the rack, are 10-series 1x2" 8020 aluminum T-Slots so you can use whatever 8020 compatible fasteners, hardware, panels, etc. you want to easily create a custom set-up. For example, I mounted a Road Shower 4 across the back, which fits with about and inch to spare, by attaching some small 15-series 8020 crossbars to the rails. I also ordered some custom aluminum plates from 8020 and was able to fasten them directly to the rails creating a nice walkable roof deck/tie down area. The solar panels were also fastened directly to the rails by using 8020 compatible hardware. The rack has attachment/mounting holes down the outside length of the rails so you can easily attach things like antennas (I attached a SureCall cell booster on one side),awnings or whatever. Net/net, not sure why one would pay $3 or $4K for one of the "custom" roof racks when you can buy this rack for a lot less and very easily customize it yourself in whatever configuration you want.
Easy install with quality made product and components.
It IS well made, easy to install, looks beautiful and is priced right! The crew at FVCO is top notch!
Installation was pretty simple, materials all feel very sturdy. It would be nice if the fairing came with an installation video or booklet too, as we initially only secured it with the 6 bolts on the sides and did not attach the 80/20 rail along the top edge... reaching highway speeds the fairing started making a terrible rattling noise. After attaching the 80/20 rail to the top edge it does not rattle and is working great, just would have been nice to avoid that.
The rack arrived so quickly after I ordered it I was amazed! Thank you.
Purchased a side ladder for our Sprinter van from Flatline Van Co. It came super quick and was easy to install. It looks incredible and is very well built. 10/10 would recommend!
This thing is great! Surprisingly light and sturdy, easy install and looks good. Zero wind noise or any sounds while on highway. Amazing value compared to the absurd prices some other companies are charging. My van came with an aftermarket rack that's approx' 1" high than a factory/vantech rack but that didn't affect the install. I did ad some grip tape t the treads.
Compared to the install video, these now come with self- tapping screws to connect the 2 parts together.
The front fairing was easy to install and works great! Highly recommend this product.
We really like the ladder, easy to install and very solid build.
showed up very quickly and was an easy one person install. clever design!
This is a great rack value for what you get. Fit perfectly with the Fiamma F65S and also locates a perfect spot for light bar in the front and/or back. I plan to use these on our future builds because they are so customizable. If interested, search Northpole Light 42" 240W Waterproof Spot Flood Combo LED Light Bar on amazon for a nice light bar that fits perfectly with this rack.
I received the Low Pro roof rack for my 2017 Ford Transit and began installation immediately. Everything I needed was included and the install was a piece of cake. The holes lined up perfectly and everything went right into place. It looks great as feels super solid. I highly recommend
This rack was so easy to but on the van. Pleased with the design. Very excited to add solar panels and awning next and give it a nice road trip. Keep you posted.
I ordered the rack and ladder. Love the product! I was able to install it all by myself. Took only a couple hours to have it fully installed. Silas at Flatline Van Co. was super helpful and made the ordering process seamless. Highly recommended.
Crossbars work great and allow me to slide them into any configuration I might need.
I noticed a considerable amount of wind noise without a fairing on my low pro rack. At first I went the cheap route and made my own for 20 bucks. Needless to say, it didn’t work so well. I decided to go with the FVC fairing and glad I did. It’s rock solid and no more wind noise.
Sometimes I climb up the ladder just for the sake of climbing up it...that's how awesome the ladder looks and feels.
As others have said, working with the OEM plastic rocker molding on the bottom of the van (that is covering the metal skirt you attach the ladder plate to) is a pain. But once you get past some obstacles the ladder is beautiful, well-made, and perfectly solid-feeling. Love it.
My new FVCO rack for my Transit AWD is incredibly well made and really heavy duty. Customer service was super responsive and their shipping was so fast. Can't wait to see what other gear they come up with for my van.
Great looking product, very clean and well made. I had questions about installation and emailed, I received answers to my questions within a day. Looking forward to buying other products.
Nicely made, heavy gauge metal fairing. Very pleased.
