Ended up having to also add a thule ferring to the front of the rack to reduce wind noise. Once installed, it pretty much negated any noticeable wind noise.

Hi - can you repost pics of your roof rack?

Thanks.

@FordTransit - Man, not sure why the forum deleted my photos. I dont have them anymore, so cannot add, unfortunately. It appears that they were deleted from the Fiamma Awning thread as well.

A new twist.

If you followed this thread, you'll know that I put LED flood lights at the corners of my rack. They've been great at camp in helping set up and light when you need it. I also started covering them with old socks to attenuate the light for mood camp lights.

I just installed dimmers on them and now I don't have to crawl up there and slip on the socks.

LEDs and dimmers can be complicated.
