Created in Fort Collins, Colorado, the Van Cafe Rooftop Deck is the product of years of manufacturing expertise. Here at Van Cafe, we are innovators, thinkers, creators, doers and most importantly, users! We love the outdoors and the idea of sharing experiences and memories with our families, friends, and our customers.

The key to a good camper van is function and storage (well, some of us like the comfort, aesthetics, and convenience but that’s another story). How cool is it when you get both in one product? Bring your kayak, mount your rocket box, attach your bike rack or ski rack – pretty much whatever you can think of, the Rooftop Deck can handle it. Born out of a gap in the market for a truly versatile and modular roof rack, this system stems from the essence of “build it my way."

  • Fully loaded, the Rooftop Deck only weighs 160lbs due to the all-aluminum construction.
  • Aluminum is durable, weather and corrosion resistant, and infinitely recyclable. It will not weaken when exposed to the sun and does not rot or rust after becoming wet. It’s the perfect metal for your rack.
  • No-drill installation! 

The components of the Rooftop Deck are the Base Perimeter Rack, Planks, Filler Panel & Deck Boards. The diagram and descriptions are below. 

 

Base Perimeter Rack:

  • Made of lightweight extruded aluminum.
  • Works around solar panels, vents, and other elements on the roof of your van. 
  • Great for mounting awnings, side ladders and more.
  • The Perimeter is extruded – which has 4 slots around the inch and a half square tube that allows complete versatility and provides a strong base.
  • Comes with aluminum corner kits which have inner and outer support and secures the rack together. The corner kits are tig welded.
  • Also comes with riser kits that mounts to each model van specifically through the factory mounting points.

OPTIONAL COMPONENTS:

Planks:

  • Made of aluminum and weigh only a few pounds apiece.
  • Run perpendicular to your vehicle (driver to passenger side) and provide the cross support and decking surface all in one.
  • 8″ wide and can be placed anywhere along your deck to accommodate roof vents, solar panels, or air conditioners.
  • They have a grid of holes and mounting points that have been laser cut for versatility in mounting options (they are also bent and formed in a CNC press brake).  

Filler Panel: 

  • Designed and created as the front and rear panel of the rack.
  • Fill the gap right behind the front and rear crossbars and offers mounts for lights, tie-downs, and accessories. 
  • You can put a Filler Panel on the front, rear, or both areas of the Base Perimeter Rack.

Deck Boards: 

  • Smaller, lightweight boards that continue the theme of versatility.
  • Deck Boards don’t have the structural integrity of the planks as they are designed for add-on decking to cover smaller gaps created by roof vents and other elements on your roof.
  • Grid holes to mount components and accessories. You may also use up to 14 Deck Boards to complete your Rooftop Deck.

A note about packing and shipping: The Rooftop Deck is modular, which means it comes in pieces and for those old enough to remember, think erector set. It ships in a few standard size boxes. Our warehouse is stocked since the components don’t take much room. The pandemic has presented a supply chain challenge, but we still believe we will have the shortest lead times – our goal is to always have product in stock and ready to go.

*Ladder coming soon

We will have the instructions up soon!
