Easy Install. Great support with any questions and really looks amazing

Additional Roofrace Crossbars

Tricky to say too much about extra cross bars but here goes.

Fantastic Flatline service as always. The bars were exactly as expected. Perfect condition, correct hardware and easy to install. The roof Rack now has the additional support, spacing options and storage flexibly I wanted.

Worth every penny.

Low Pro Roofrack

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.

Low pro rack

Super easy to install and fits really well on the van!

Easy...even in the bitter cold!

Installed my roof rack on my Ford Transit in 30°F temps and it was simple and straight forward. Even with frozen fingers the process was easy to follow!
However, either giving an Allen key or telling what size key was needed would have been helpful!
As has been said before, the heights to match up from front to rear. Not a major concern but I feel it could be an easy fix.

Thank you!

I ordered the Low Pro Roof Rack for our 148" medium roof Transit at the end of the year and it arrived just over a week later after the holiday. The boxes were in good shape and packed well. I installed it on our van over the following weekend. It took about 5 hours, but I spent about an hour of this time cleaning and waxing the roof. Installation was straightforward. The written and video instructions were helpful. I corresponded with FVC via e-mail on a couple of things and replies were prompt and helpful. I put the rack together on the roof in pieces while leaving the bolts semi-snug but not tight. I tightened the bolts piece by piece after aligning everything. Another reviewer commented on the challenge of aligning the two side rail pieces. It was challenging. I used a clamp to align and hold these pieces in place while I tightened the bolts, which seemed to work fine. I am very happy with how strong and solid the rack feels. It's simple, functional, and looks good. I will apply some additional sealant around the footers to further protect against water intrusion, but that's me being overly cautious. Looking forward to using the rack! I recommend it and FVC.

I’d give 10 stars if I could

Hey everyone! I have a 2018 Low Roof 350 XLT (148” wheelbase), and have been agonizing over what roof rack to get until I realized the mid roof and low roof have the same mounting points. That said, the Flatline Low Pro Roof Rack - made for the Transit 148" Mid Roof works perfect, and everything lines up great. It actually looks like it was made for it, as the front edge lines up exactly with back edge of the front door.

There are other name brand racks that cover the entire footprint of the roof, but they require drilling new mounting holes into the roof for front support. I didn’t want to do that, as using factory mounts only was a priority.

Best yet, each person (Russell & Silas) I’ve worked with there have been beyond helpful. I was hesitant to leave a message thinking I won’t get a call back, but he (Russell) not only called, but he was polite, helpful and professional. I had a couple questions I emailed in after getting the rack, and Russell was more than helpful, and I even had follow up help from Silas.

All in all, the product and the service at FCV are top notch, and I’m beyond satisfied with my purchase.

Well done

Very happy and satisfied with the email notification with an inventory update. Nice service and keep up the quality designs.

Clean design

While I haven't installed the Step Extension yet, I'm excited to, and love the clean design!

DIY Bed

Stoked on the DIY Bed. Way easy to install and looks super rad! Fits perfect with my Hide and Go passenger seat leaving 18" between bed and back of seat to move around.

Easy install

Very easy to install. My 12 year old and I got it done very quickly. It looks great also. Now I just need to use it!

Great Racks

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.

bomber rack

love rack install quick easy rack is solid as rock

Low pro roof rack

Arrived quickly, great sturdy product. Nice powder coat that seems like it will be durable for years to come!

Awesome product....awesome communication....awesome support!

This has been a seamless and positive transaction from start to completion. I will order more items from Flatline Van Co. as soon as I need something they have designed and sourced! I did this completely by myself in about 3 hours (in the rain). The only modification that I made to the instructional video, is that instead of removing the factory plugs to access the bolt/nuts under the skin...I punctured the factory rubber plugs to accept the Flatline bolts. The first bolt I installed I removed the factory rubber plug (then reinstalled it) but noticed that the plugs are not exactly centered on the interior nut, and so the Flatline rack "foot" with it's associated foam pad did not fully cover the area where the factory plug had been. This seemed like a potential entry point for moisture in the future as the foam foot pad compacts over time. I will be attaching an OVS Nomadic-270 awning in the spring. I will attach 2 of my 100w Solar Panel in a few weeks. I will be designing and attaching a small observation deck that can hold kayaks. Great company!!

Transit high roof low pro rack

So far it's an awesome product. Easy install, adjustable crossbars. I have not attached anything as of now, but I don't envision having any issues.

Perfectlly fulfilled with extras

The extra crossbars arrived quick and there was a nice surprise of some 80/20 bolts and nuts to get me going. You guys are killing it and I love to see all your new products rolling out. Your design and pricepoint are a good fit.

Exactly what I needed for my build👌

This bed system fit perfectly with my flarespace windows and my factory 3-seater set in the middle position to accommodate our two toddlers with car seats. Not many options out there as most van outfitters don’t take into consideration building products that work for kids seating. Highly recommended to anyone with this configuration in there van. I waited quite a while for this product and and super happy on the fit and quality.

Great service!

Excellent company with great service and products.

Excellent product - Easy to install

Was extremely pleased with the product upon receipt. Everything was included, and after watching the YouTube installation video, it was a cinch to install. Ford misaligned one of the sheet metal openings ... a little angle grinding fixed that.

Roof rack / ladder

Thanks for your guys help. Excellent customer service!

Phenomenal

Exactly what we were looking for! Incredibly easy to install! We ran into a small hurtle with one of the holes on our van not being threaded correctly-called the company and they had a solution (that worked) for us in less than a hour! So easy to install and SO WELL MADE!!!! We have a 148 ext and the roof rack runs the ENTIRE length of the van roof (even past the slope!) so happy with our purchase! Hurry up and get the ladder in stock! We are loyal customers!
IG BornAndBound

Excellent quality and design.

I installed two of the large cubbies in my van. They ship flat and disassembled. Assembly takes about 3 minutes with an end wrench. I used wood screws to screw straight to the floor. They are great at keeping the odds and ends/loose stuff contained.

Great simple rack system

easy to install. If you are putting an awning on, make sure to set your crossbar locations before installing awing, as it is not possible once awning is attached. If you can find a way to build the rack on the ground and lift it into place, this is the best way to assemble and install. Keep all the bolts loose until the rack is attached to the roof. Looks great too!

Nicely machined!

Product arrived on time, undamaged, and the parts were inventoried with everything there! I was surprised at the weight of the side rail members, but the thickness of the aluminum plates (about 3/16" to 7/32") shows the rack will be plenty strong to hold some solar panels. One of the reasons I chose Flatline's Low Pro rack is it will easily accomodate my roof mounted AC and provide additional protection to my High-Roof from small tree branches and eventually hold an awning. Now just waiting on some decent weather to do the install!
