    Roof mount point thread has moved !

    So, whilst attaching the roofbars, one of the thread receptors has moved away from the hole on the van roof and now it's impossible to either get the roofbar bolt to screw in or the threaded cover to go back on. Anyone got any suggestions? Thinking I might have to bond the cover screen back on.

    Roof rails and HiLo pop-tops

    I want to fit roof rails to my HiLo. Mainly so I can mount a replaceable solar panel between 2 bars but perhaps some lighter carry duties in the future too. As low profile as possible would be good. Anyone fitted rails to a HiLo? Which did you go with?

    Does anyone know what roof rails are fitted onto their 2019 build T6 vans? and what the safe loading of this roof is? Messaged Teahupoo only to find their Customer Aftermarket Support is non-existent.
