Ski Racks

Use side ladder and board pole to mount your ski racks vertically. Works great.

Dear Matt,
We’re absolutely thrilled to see the creative way you've utilized our roof rack, side ladder, and board pole to mount your ski racks vertically. Your setup is not just unique; it’s practically a work of art (and function!). It’s adventurers like you who push the boundaries and show us all the fantastic, unthought-of ways our gear can be used. We might have to take a page out of your book for future designs!

Thanks for sharing your setup with the community and for inspiring us and other van enthusiasts with your ingenuity. Keep skiing, keep boarding, and most importantly, keep being awesome!

Stay adventurous,
Orion Van Gear

The creation of a surf rack for my dodge van

With one simple random question to a company i stumbled upon...Orion....i now have my dream surf racks i never realized i could have. With pictures and measurements they put together a plan for me. I could not be happier.
Starting with adaptors, brackets, custom rails, and finishing with 2 surf poles and surf hooks. All shipped to me at home and easily installed. Fitting perfect.

I went with OVG because I would have had to wait 2-3 months for another brand.
I'm glad I chose OVG.
The tech order, tech support, and install was FLAWLESS. The racks mount up exactly as per instructions, and the included hardware is solid high quality.
There are several additional advantages:
1. Better bottom mount - OVG uses a more clamp style mount for the lower seam.
2. The upper part mounts directly to 8020 rails and can be adjusted for slight variations.
3. The two piece design means the rack has more strength in the center - where the boards go. It also makes install easier.

OVG is the way to go!

Thank you for your review and for choosing Orion Van Gear. We are glad to hear that you had a great experience with our tech support, install, and products. It sounds like you really appreciate the thoughtful design and high-quality materials that went into our board pole. We appreciate your support and are happy to have been able to meet your needs. If you have any questions or need any assistance in the future, please don't hesitate to reach out. Best regards, Team Orion
