    Hi Curran,

    I saw on a forum page that you have the alurack on your high roof transit. we have the exact same rig and are contemplating putting this rack on ours. I already installed a Maxxair fan on the front of our roof (in first cavity that is not curved). I am wondering if you have added a fan to your van yet? If so, how much does it protrude above the crossbars of the rack? I want to be able to slide SUPs up and on top of the rack without worrying about damaging the fan. Also have plans to build a platform on the top that goes around the fan for sleeping on nice summer nights. Any photos/dimensions would be greatly appreciated before we drop all this $$$ !

    Hi! I had given up on my dream of a Transit medium roof conversion when I realized there was just no way I would be able to load 14 foot SUP race boards on the roof. Then I saw your post about the Alurack and it gave me hope! I am going to try to find a local Transit work van with one and do a dry run to see if I can set the nose of the board on the back roller, walk it forward while holding tail of the board above my head, and then maybe have a short stepladder to lift it the last couple of feet and push the board the rest of the way on.
    I would assume that the distance from ground to the back roller is about 9 feet? Are you able to step on the crossbars, or have you had added a walkway or platform? The Alurack and ladder look sharp, and way less weight and $ than the Aluminess! Glad I saw your post, and I would appreciate any advice regarding loading SUP boards, kayaks etc that you have experienced. Thanks! Neil
