The things you learn on your first van..
I ordered my van with roof bar prep kit...
(One of the few accessories i requested that they DID fit. :rolleyes: )
So. does this mean if i want roofbars I have to buy the original VW items?? By bars I mean the ones going along the van not crossbars..
I have acquired some roof guide rails, the hidden ones, for a SWB T6
Does anyone have any information about what screws/bolts are needed to fit them?
have tried searching but failed! All I can find are the blanking screws
I want to add some roof bars to our converted van - the conversion was done by Camper King (Monte Carlo).
I've tried emailing them but haven't got a response - does anyone know what roof they use.
I'm wanting to use these roof bars - wondering it its the universal fitting kit I need...

I now have standard roof rails but my existing Thule cross bars are too short even at 135cm (annoying, as I got longer ones secondhand :confused:)
Which crossbars can I get that will allow a T-shaped slot for Thule bike carriers? The Thule site not forthcoming!
Has anyone fitted a solar panel to a Hilo roof? Wondering how you went about it, roof bars or bonded direct to roof etc...and which way you ran the cabling etc. When the roof is up on a Hilo there is quite a big gap to bridge from the back end of the roof and the tailgate so wondering how people...

Any thoughts on the following -
My T6 van is less than a year old. It was a demonstrator.

I didn’t bother with silicone...
Looking for some advice please:
I would like to install some black roof rails and cross bars - to which I will mount my solar panel, therefore I’d like the cross bars to be straight. Recomend away please
Just a bit of advice. I have the factory roof rack prep on my van but I’m not sure what bars or rack that actually takes.
I’ve tried doing my research and searching on this site but not much info specifically to the prep.
is there a particular type or can I put some OEM rails or...
After much chin rubbing and stand back and looking I've decided to take the roof bars off for a different look now the van is lower. I've done all the wittling and drilling needed to make this an easy fix... I've also got the 6mm threaded bar bits for the t6 forum fitment hack.. I'm located in...
