It looks great. Thule has brought to market a rack connection for the Transit's roof, It consists of a Podium Foot 460 paired with a fit kit 3138. I getting these so I can reinstall my existing Thule kayak carriers to my new Transit 350.
Thanks, I have been waiting for the after-market rack mfg. to adapt to the Transit.
Will this setup be attached to the threaded holes in the Transit's roof, or clipped to the edge of the roof somehow? The illustrations are not definitive IMO.
The 460 foot pack is shown at the edge of another vehicle's roof here:
But the base plate for the fit kit looks like it could bolt down to the threaded holes in the Transit's roof (the right-hand photo):
Although the adapters on the left and center look like they may be intended to go at the edge of the roof.
PS -- Here is a photo of one Transit roof's flat mounting points:
I think this is an extended length van BTW. My short low roof Wagon has a total of six flats.
Yakima make "artificial gutters." That is a plate that bolts down on a flat surface. I've used them in the past. With the plate installed you can attach any rain gutter latch, be it yakima, thule, or off brand. I'm certain than you could drill a hole in one and use it on a Transit. I'm thinking it would fit right in the indention around the anchor point.
