Vanagon Westfalia Roof Rack system

This roof rack attaches to both the fiberglass pop top and it has rain gutter clamps.  It only fits the Vanagon Westfalia, see this page for passenger van roof racks

I came up with this rack system because I had concerns about putting anything more than the lightest load on the fiberglass roof of my Westfalia. 
I don't think the pop top was originally designed to carry things.  You can use gutter mount roof racks but that means you have to remove the rack and
anything on it to raise the roof.  With this rack system you just have to remove the lower clamps, the rack (and your cargo) stays attached to the pop top.  

The rear rack bar only fits at the very rear of the pop top (the pop top is curved in two planes).  The front bar only fits in
the two narrower sections of the pop top. It does not fit at the very front, the fixed section of the roof. You can order two forward bars if desired. 
If you order a front and rear bar, your Safari basket (if ordered) will be at the very back of the van.
Having the basket at the very back is the most practical, you can access it from the rear and it is easier to pop the top. 

Tip:  To pop the top with heavy items like a canoe or two sea kayaks, one person is inside the van lifting the bar and another climbs up to the outside front cargo tray and lifts from there.
