    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.

    Popular Applications
    Kayaks and Canoes

    Lifting kayaks onto the roof of a car is a challenge, especially if you are alone. Properly securing them also takes longer and is more strenuous than it should be when it is difficult to access.

    With Dropracks, it is possible to load the kayaks on your own without worrying about physical strain and the risk of damaging the car. You can walk around the kayak(s) in the lowered loading position and make sure they are securely fastened with the loading straps before setting off.

    Lifting bikes, especially heavier electric bikes, onto the roof of a car is associated with risk. It's easy to accidentally get a pedal stripe in the paint. On the Dropracks Sport, you can fit four bike carriers next to each other, if you mount them alternating back and forth, lengthwise - backwards.
    Roof tent

    Lifting a roof tent on and off the roof of a car on traditional roof racks can be a real strain, even when you are two people. With Dropracks, this becomes significantly easier. In addition, it is significantly easier to "slip" the roof tent on and off as needed, so you don't have to drive around with the roof tent more than necessary.
    Ski box/roof boxes

    In the winter, it is well known that cars often get extra dirty from snow, dust, and road salt. With Dropracks on the roof, you don't have to balance with dirty shoes in either the door frame, on the wheels, or on the trailer hitch. Lower the entire roof box down to a comfortable height without getting your clothes dirty from the car, or worrying about the zippers scratching the paint on the car.

    Safety in Mind

    Dropracks features automatic stainless steel locks to securely hold the rack in place, and has a visual and audible indication that the locks are properly engaged. The release buttons are large and can easily be pressed even while wearing gloves or mittens.


    The integrated lifting crank has adjustable momentum to make sure you can lift heavy loads without strain on your body.

    Additionally, the Dropracks Sport is tested and approved in accordance with international standards for roof racks, ensuring that it is built to withstand the toughest conditions.
