A Few More Details
All our products feature a medical grade nylon protective insert on the inside of the aluminum tubes, which will protect your fly rods from getting scuffed and rattled while traveling rooftop in your Rod Vault.
The Rod Vault PRO reel housing is manufactured using the highest quality polycarbonate resins and will accommodate reels up to an 8 weight (4.5 inch diameter) and rods up to 10.5 feet in length. The reel housing also features an industrial strength locking system that comes with two keys.
The polycarbonate clamps not only offer a strong and effective way of attaching your Rod Vault PRO rooftop fly rod carrier unit to the cross members of your roof rack mounting system, but they are also built so you can lock the clamps to your cross members by using a small padlock (not included).
At Denver Outfitters our rooftop fly rod holders deliver style, performance and the added convenience of being able to rig up your rods the night before your trip, put them in your TRV-PRO, lock it down, and get on your way as early as possible for the fullest day of fishing. Or better yet keep your rods and reels ready to go all year long for fishing at a moments notice!
No more snags on car upholstery, broken fly rods, damaged reels, or wasted time on the river bank rigging up your gear. It’s time to make the most of your fishing days – you’ve earned it!

Frequently Asked Questions

It holds fly rods up to 10.5 feet and the reel housing will accommodate reels up to an 8 weight in most cases (a max diameter of 4.5 inches).
The TRV is designed to protect your rods & reels from breakages and scuffs. Read some of our reviews to find out just how secure our product is!
Rod Vaults come standard with a 1 year warranty for parts based on normal usage. But we also offer an extended 3 & 5 year replacement warranty for an additional cost.
New lock and key sets are available for purchase on our website, lost keys are not covered by warranty.
1. The roof rack crossbars to which the Rod Vault can be mounted can be up to 3.5” wide and up to 1.5” thick. In addition, the separation between the crossbars should, ideally, be a minimum of 34”.
2. Vehicles with hatchbacks/liftgates:
It’s important to mount the Rod Vault far enough forward on the vehicle roof rack that the hatchback/liftgate does not hit/contact the back of the reel housing. For this reason many customers have asked if they can place both of the mounting clamps on the reel housing section of the Rod Vault. While this is not the optimal installation, we’ve had many customers who have mounted their Rod Vaults this way with no reports of problems.

I’m an avid Fly Fisherman who fishes about 30 days a year all over the southwest. On one of my trips to southern Colorado my guide Spencer Seim had one on his Toyota 4 Runner I was instantly smitten. I asked him about it and he raved about how much time it saves him plus I think it just adds some swagger to any vehicle. I knew I had to get one. This Christmas I pulled the trigger and couldn’t be happier. Before the Rod Vault was sent I got a call from someone who asked me if I needed it rushed before Christmas I was instantly impressed by the customer service. No more rods bent over my back seats hoping something wont shift and snap my fly rods. I love this thing. I’m not handy and after watching your video installation was a breeze. I have 5 trips booked this year from New Mexico to Montana I can’t wait to put some miles on my Rod Vault. The Rod Vault is a must for any true angler who cares about their equipment. For the price of half on one of my fishing outfits I can protect 3 rods and save loads of time. Love It!

The Rod Vault is secure and I’ve never had any worries leaving it parked overnight or in a busy lot loaded with rods. Really easy to install, I can assemble and have it mounted on my truck in under an hour, all tools are supplied, just pop a beer and it’s done by the time you finish it. If you are serious about slinging flies, I highly recommend one, or two.
