A combination of craigslist finds, a little fabrication, and an amazon deal provided a Yakima roof rack (actually 2 of them) and storage box for a total investment of $120. The risers needed a spacer hence the fabrication part. With a tin top rather than a Westy, Storage is even more of a premium. However the need to store items outside the van is universal and this solution is very practical. The only downside is that the van will not be able to go into a regular garage with the roof box on top.
