Dormobile style curved front roof rack ***SOLD ***

Post by rusty1962 » Thu Jul 07, 2016 6:59 pm

Hi

I'm selling this rack which I originally bought for Rusty. It's not required anymore as I can now make them.

It needs a good blast and then paint or powder coat, or just run it ratty. It's pre drilled for fitting slats (I have some slats but they're a bit thin in my opinion, but can be provided).

It will fit a bus with a Dormy roof, a single cab or any other tin top split. Each leg has a clamp to fit it to the gutter.

Here it is on Rusty

£295

Great! That means the J Rax will fit perfect too! Look forward to meeting up at a show at some future point.

Yes.

I've got a couple of early ones available cheap and I make my current "curvy" design to order. I have a few folks waiting at the moment and its not a very quick process as I make them as and when I have time and when the mood takes me :)

There's another thread with more photos

Hi and thanks for the message.

I don't make many but still do one from time to time.

I've got a couple of front and rears "in stock" at the moment - my own set that I've been running on Rusty for three years and another set that I made for myself as I fancied a change, the latters being more "raked and curvy."

If you are interested, send me an email and I'll send some photos.

Cheers,

Steve
