I am extremely rough on my things and I had heard some ugly stories about the F80S on the low pro rack (coming open after getting hit by a wind gust on the highway, etc.). I can say with certainty that anything like that that has happened has been user error. I have taken my van over engineer pass, up the dalton highway, and across the country five times and I have had zero issues. I could not be happier with my Flatline products.

Worked out great. Fiamma brackets fit right in the slots. The FVC kit actually aligns the front and back supports just by position. Excellent quality item. Installed on my 2021 170 Sprinter.
I did not have alot of room to move solar pannel this allowed me to accommodate the rack sufficiently. I personally had to extend the rack overall length due to my pannel alignment but its only possible to see from overhead.
NOTE: i bought an aftermarket roof rales vs oem. The rack itself mounted fine but the FIAMA MOUNT did not drop the track of the rails so I decided to cut one of portions off that fit inside the track so there was more metal on metal support and interior feet touched the van
Bought this kit for use with my Fiamma F80 awning. I couldn't be happier with the kit.
