Roof racks/cargo carrier options

Hi all.

I'm interested to see what roof rack/cargo carriers options people are running on their WK2s.

I recently go quoted for a Rhino rack alloy 'Pioneer' tray both with and without sides & both options were around $1K.

Then there's the Rocky Road Outfitters option from the US for about $700-$750.

I like the look of a rack that bolts straight into the roof tracks from Urban Offroad in LA but that's in the $800s and they don't ship internationally.

I even went to my local metal fabrication place but they said that for them to make something similar, I wouldn't get much change out of a grand.

Only other option I could use is buy an XL Rola Vortex and have some brackets made up to keep it low profile.

Anyway, I'm keen to here any other options that are out there.

Cheers,

Clarkey.

Here's mine. Ex dealer, negotiated as part of package, but I've added independant shovel holder and pole carrier.
