Sliding storage and roof rack, awning

I would like to build a sliding section for the back of the transit to put the kids bmx bikes on and regular storage as needed. Where would people recommend finding the slider rails that are good for this?

I would also like to install a rack...thinking Aluminess and attach an awning to it. What awnings would people recommend?

Thanks.

I don't know that anyone makes a specific slide for our vans - you may have some success looking for those designed for pickup trucks. Either that or design your own.

www.eurocampers.com sells them. At least they did in 2013 when I bought one for my sprinter camper.

You can get 48 in heavy duty slides on Amazon, I used those for my bike drawer
