Voyager Off-road

Anybody have any experience with Voyager Racks, specifically their Off-Road Challenge Edition for a Range Rover SWB?

I have one(D2), I like it quite a bit. Coating hasn't really chipped and it's well made.

The ones I've seen in person look okay, but nothing to write home about. Are they not the company that took a bunch of people's money without delivering the product? I may have them confused with someone else.

I think that was somebody else--- the Voyager racks I've seen in person honestly look better than most SD racks...

Even as Rover Racks, nothing shady went on...funny how rumors get started. I think you're referring to buttdork or buttdorf. Voyager Racks are the cats ass. But I'm bias.

Nothing I have against you personally or any experience with, Google isn't very NWP friendly and neither was the previous owner of my truck.

I stand behind my products, as any business owner that has a spine would. If you have a specific claim, I would be happy to address it. But if you're one of my competitors, trying to make a dig on my products, then pick up the phone and give me a call. If I worked for Rovers North, or AB, I wouldn't spend my free time on the message boards trying to kill American Industry by pimping products made in china/offshore. Not sure if any of you are, but wouldn't be surprised.

Here's my number: 941 421 9300

That's what I was thinking of! A buddy of mine has one of their racks. It took him about 8 months to get it IIRC and the welds look like crap. The Rover Racks look better than his though.

Like I said, I have nothing against you and love the roof rack I have on my disco. If it made any financial sense, RN and AB and L8 etc would have all their parts made in the US. As of late I can't recall a single US Rover fab company that has stayed in business under the same name/owner/etc.

I will admit that I had an employee whom ruined my relationships with customers and vendors alike. However since firing her, and taking over full time (10 years ago) things are great. Divorce has really helped too, and I appreciate all the support from the Rover Community. You guys have been great (you know who you are).

Keep jobs in the good ol USA!

We have a Voyager rack on our LR4 - no issues with quality or customer service.

Trevor, Voyager/Rover racks is not a reliable business supplier, either with quality of product or financial responsibility. Never meets deadlines. Avoid this business.
