Roof Racks can be had from Harbour Freight; then modify it to suit your fit and finish.



Ladders can be had from Eurocampers.com



cheers...

I'm curious what people put in roof racks? Getting up there is a pain and I wouldn't want much weight that high.
Also, with an A/C unit, Maxxfan and solar panels I think I pretty much at roof weight capacity.

What we put up there is all light weigh, mostly aluminized hardware: small table; mini gas grill; canvas sun/rain covers and it's poles. 2 Kermit chairs. Fishing gear. All these are pretty lightweight.



No sweat hauling it upstairs... everything is in weathered rubberized canvas bags. Fastened using heavy duty shock cords. Height is equivalent to the AC cover.

Reason for upper rack.... don't have enough space under bed.





cheers...
