    Just spotted this cracking roof rack to hold 8×4 sheets! Hopefully will be useful to some people on here.

    nice idea makes a lot a sense but cant clarify if it will take 2500 x1250 sheets which are quite common now.

    not the end of the world, but the problem is that it is on the roof.
    10ft x 5ft sheets would be even trickier!

    Regardless, still a good add on to have and frees up space in the back of the van.

    I’ve been considering getting another van, even though I’ve made a system to out 8×4 securely in the truck, been thinking of a smaller van (Vito/custom size) and this might just be the deciding factor!!

    Excellent idea. My van is quite small so I rely on the roof rack sometimes to transport 8×4 sheets but it needs to be carefully tied down and is open to the elements. Also I can’t carry a ladder at the same time. This solution seems ideal for anyone with a smallish van that needs to transport large sheet materials along with all their tools.

    Thinking about buying one of these, is anyone using one and would they recommend it?

    Thanks

    i still think these are a great add-on as it will free up space. but i imagine the wind-drag will cost you long term. we have had some bulky roofracks in the past and it is a noticable drive with and without. the wind drag definately adds to the fuel costs.

    That said, Rhino roofracks do offer a nice range. i was looking at them just recently.
