Our RV-10 Carbon Fiber Overhead Console is now available for purchase. The photos are of our first production overhead console. We still need to add access panels, weather stripping, and the clothes hanger, but want to get these photos as soon as possible. As you can see, the fit is perfect.
We understand that our RV-10 Carbon Fiber Overhead Console isn’t the least expensive option available. We do believe that it is the best overhead console that is available for the RV-10. Features that differentiate our overhead console from our competitors are:
Carbon Fiber makes the overhead console both stronger and lighter in weight. We’ll have the exact weight posted shortly, but it is estimated to be at least ten times lighter than another vendor’s fiberglass overhead.
Our design and manufacturing process will yield a more precise fit. As you can see in these photos, there is almost no sanding and trimming required to install the overhead console.
A special built-in channel and weather stripping will prevent air from coming through around the access panel seams. If you talk to others that have installed a competitive product, most will tell you that the access panels aren’t very well sealed.
A built-in clothes hanger that you can easily hang clothes, without having to perform unnatural acts to get the hangar hung.
Weighs just under 3.5lbs
You may order the RV-10 Carbon Fiber Overhead Console. Mounting hardware and air vents not included. Save on bundling AEROVENTS with your Overhead Console. You may select bundle options below.
The following renderings are the original renderings we used in the design process. We have digitally scanned one of Van’s pink canopies to serve as our digital master. This should ensure a more consistent fit than some of the other attempts to develop into an overhead console. Carbon fiber will also make the console both stronger and lighter than traditional fiberglass units.
We have intentionally not made specific mounting locations for lighting. Our initial surveys yielded too many opinions on where lighting should be located. Builders are free to drill holes in the console where ever they choose to place lighting. We did place mounting locations to accommodate four air vents. You can obtain these from multiple vendors, however, we do know the vents from SteinAir work great. We have also included a clothes hanger in the baggage area that is reinforced to accommodate heavy loads.
The RV-10 Carbon Fiber Overhead Console will be shipped with no finish. The following renderings show the carbon fiber in a finished state.
