I had seriously considered the proline racks. They look good. I have too much other stuff on my roof in the way that was installed by the original outfitter to use them however. What hardware do they use for attaching? Sheet metal screws? I would think it might be better to use VHB tape plus screws as I did for my brackets?I put track mount racks on mine made by proline.
See the attached picture of my solar panels straddling my roof vent.
Don't know if you've found a solution but I've got a couple ways to do what you're looking for. Vantech makes a gutter style crossbar system (H1 I think?) for the high top that you could install many different platforms onto or build a custom one.Hello, I’ve been looking for a platform type roof rack that would fit a 2006 144 van with a vent.
Seems like Aluminus has the market covered but would love to see what others have going on before I spend that kind of money! Pictures would be much appreciated
I've used unistrut that I attached using a few bolts that go through the roof and have a washer and a lock nut underneath.
Some crappy pictures I attached - sorry I don't have better ones showing it.
So with the Rhino Rack their website won't really give a fit option because with the tracks installed it would be a custom job. After the tracks are installed you would just need a set of towers that mount in the tracks and the pioneer platform size of your choice. The pioneer platform will mount directly to their towers or to any set of crossbars you have with their adapter. Their website is kind of difficult to navigate for custom installs (even for someone who knows what they're looking for). But the tower I would recommend for tracks is their RLT600 as it is quick release allowing you to take the entire platform off easily.Yes was looking at the Rhino platform but couldn’t get a straight answer if it would fit a 2006 sprinter with rails.
Also was wondering What crossbars would go with it? Thanks again!
