    Are you sure you can't get one of my racks inside the van?

    The rear mounted rack is a nice idea but the biggest problem you will find is the cost to develop the first one will be huge. You'd be lucky to get it for 3 times what you want to pay.

    Unfortunately not Geko...I did look at your racks but as my T5 is kitted out as a camper van there is zero space inside for racking.

    Quite a few people have adapted them for paramotors which are quite heavy. Not tried one myself but I think they are strong (130Kgs loading - more than the tow bar). You might be able to modify one.
    Cheers Tim, this is an interesting one. They actually mention using it as a windsurfing rack on their site, I'll give them a bell to find out some more.

    I'd be interested to hear how you got on with this Danny. I might be looking at doing the same thing for a trip next year.
    Loose - the opposite of tight. Lose - the one that's pronounced 'looze'.

    I decided to buy a bigger van!! I spoke to a nice chap at Bak-rak who was willing to effectively build one to my needs as he could then add it to part of his range. I think his name was Peter:

    Good plan! I checked out some of the links and was quite impressed with the bak-rac kit ( for other purposes) but was left wondering just how much damage maybe done to boards stacked on their tail if carried that way on a vehicle.

    Just wondering, why do people stack their boards on the tail end? That end is the planning surface, the end that is important. Surely a bit of damage to the nose is far less important and easier to fix than damage to the tail.

    It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes, but you can with a damn good owling.
