Dropracks TVE1

The Tall Van Edition

Have you ever tried loading kayaks or other gear onto a 2.8 meter tall camper van?

Introducing our all-new Dropracks Elevating Roof Rack for Tall Vans - The latest addition to our product lineup that's specifically designed to meet the demands of our customers with tall camper vans and a demand for utilizing the cargo space on their roofs.

We've always prided ourselves on our ability to listen to our customers and act on their feedback, and with this new version of our popular elevating roof rack, we've taken that commitment to the next level.

After rebuilding and customizing more than 50 Dropracks XLs to be even more suitable for tall vans since 2020 we decided that it's time for a limited serial production and making the product official, and therefore we have involved our trusted assembly and manufacturing partner Hettich & OBE Kinematics. They ensured this new Dropracks version is manufactured with the same high level of precission and quality controll as our beloved "Standard" Dropracks'. 

With the Dropracks TVE1 this is now possible, and you can bring the kayaks up and down in a minute. Enjoy kayaking more often when you are travelling, and dont worry about loading and unloading.

Enjoy paddling at every location you visit, and don't let the height of your van stop you from doing so.

Some great options are:

- Thule Hull A Port Aero

For the Thule option you also need 2 eye bolts per kayak as anchors for the tie-down, while the Kuat option has built in tie down attachment point.
