Be it the comedically cyclical nature of nostalgia or the rise in popularity of overlanding over the past few years, vans are hot again. And for those who aren’t looking to just transport your kids to and from soccer practice, going off the grid in a van may require some modifications. Front Runner is well-known for its adventure racks and rooftop camping tents. Now it teams up with equally-respected Dometic Outdoor for a new roof rack for your van.
The low-profile and lightweight Slimpro Van Rack joins the company of Front Runner’s flagship Slimline II and Slimsport lines as the ultimate companion for those looking to enhance their van life. Overlanding is daunting enough for those just getting started, which is why this cost-efficient option is a great option for beginners. However, its array of features and incredible durability make this an optimal choice for seasoned veterans as well.
The adjustable slat system can go along with most roof systems, including those with air conditioning units, air vents, and skylights. The foot rail on the Slimpro also offers more versatility for different-sized vehicles. Six mounting feet ensure extra durability and stability on your adventures in addition to its high-strength steel and black epoxy powder-coated T6 aluminum build. Once installed, the rack stands at only 5” above the roof and weighs under 70lbs when empty.
Head on over to Front Runner’s website to see the complete Slimpro Van Rack line and check your vehicle’s compatibility. Options start at $1,105 and go up to $2,135.
