Re: high top transit roof rack advise please

it is rare there wouldn't be the 2 of us to put them on/off the roof, but from discussions here and other places, starting to really feel that karitek is the best option out there. I'm going to look out for 2nd hand options initially i think and go from there. Hoping Daker's might be suitable. :)

Re: high top transit roof rack advise please

Re: high top transit roof rack advise please

there's a ridge/rim along the sides which from googling roof bars generally is where they should fit onto. :)

Re: high top transit roof rack advise please

We don't have roof windows/lights on this one. I suspect Karitek is likely to be the best option, just mainly wondering if they had any competition out there and if others had preferred options. It's a high vehicle at the end of the day and we do not want to be climbing around on the roof in all wea...

Re: high top transit roof rack advise please

Currently open to all options, the van doesn't have any roofrack fitted at all or any ladders, so we're starting it from scratch.
