Has anyone built up their own ‘roof rack’ or ‘roof cargo basket’ before?
We have a 2004 Ford E-350 Cargo Van and we were looking at this Werner Van Rack system from Lowes. The idea would be to get two of these systems for a total of 4 cross bars. Then we could attach our cargo box over two of them, and a plank or even a ladder across the four of them to walk along it, the solar panels could span across the two in front. Trying to save money and make it easy if anything goes wrong. There’s a ton of Lowes’ across the country, not many Aluminess or Yakimas. Thoughts?
