Gunzl supply the old style racks new with the brackets, sold separately. They are only about 3" deep so not great storage space.

The earlier roof seams to be a much better idea to me.is there no factory rack or storage solutions for the later roofs.

I also have the later version Westy. Living in your van long term, certainly makes you look at how every conceivable part of it can be put to best use. One of the mods/upgrades I'm considering doing when I get back home is the Gunzl Luggage Pan together with a GoWesty luggage bag, unless someone can convince me of a better system.

Have you thought about putting a roofbox on the main pop top?

I have the late style roof. The previous owner has put two fixing points on the three sides of the faring and two at the front above the windscreen. Now i can just put a roll mat down to protect the paint and spider bungee a big bag down when i need to or leave the "aerodynamic" faring when i dont.
