    Hey,

    I saw your posts about make an 8020 roof rack onhttps://www.fordtransitusaforum.com/ford-transit-general-discussion/60450-roof-rack-situation-3.html

    Are you happy with the results? I'm trying to decide if I want to go your route, or use weather guard rails with adapters.

    If you did it again, would you do anything different?

    Thanks!

    I found it moves quite a bit in a cross wind or when closely following trucks. Setting back 100 yards from trucks on interstate was fine. Only trip it has been on was MI to FL after I picked it up. Was fine. Easy to drive for its size. I do not speed so can not comment past 70 mph (or so). I would not see medium vs high roof as any real difference. I would not get 148 EL as it just looks too long. Longboard could comment too once his current trip is done. I found interstate noise level higher than I liked, but I did not have any floor covering in mine. Orton made same comment after he removed hit vinyl floor. I have not driven mine enough since insulation was put in to comment on noise level now. Color is ingot silver. It is a standard silver metal flake. Color can be deceiving on a computer monitor. On my photo quality monitor, I find it a fairly true representation. All that green grass in several pictures does give it a slight green tint that is not there.

    Have you found any handling issues with the high roof or any noise . I am interested in the same model but have not been able to test drive it . Is that color called Ingot Silver, looks different on the website than in your pictures.
    Thanks
