It's become more and more apparent that I'm outgrowing the T6 and need to move to something bigger, but I'm really not that keen on any of the alternatives that I've been considering (as well as having to splash out another £20-40k on top of the T6 which is not very sensible when I'm a year or 2...
HI all. I have a 2017 T6 caravelle and i have just tried putting on my roof bars.

I'm currently looking at a 2016 transporter T32 with high roof, but Ineed to be able to fit a roof rack to it. Has anyone out there done this or got any info on which would fit? It'll need to be able to carry the weight of a traditional open canoe.

Any advice appreciated!
We make regular trips with our Roof Box fitted, and currently i use a rickety old foldable step ladder to get up high enough to pack the box up. It means that i then have to take the ladder with us, rattling around in the boot, otherwise i'm stuck when i get to the other end.
Just starting now to convert a startline t6. It has the bog standard plastic bumpers but I actually quite like them....so am going to embrace them!

Got some ebay roof rails and did not want to gorm silicone into and around the fixing holes.
