    When I get my poptop fitted, I’d like to install a roof box on top of it, with rear ladder that would suit an expedition / swamper look. Has anyone done anything similar and have recommendations? @The Van Cave Chris, have you done this with Skyline pop tops?

    I’ve seen a storage box on the tailgate of a T6. Is this just a converted bike rack or is there a dedicated box rack available. I’ve had a search and can’t seem to get a definitive answer
