Best affordable roof rack for City Express?
I am shopping for bolt-on roof rack for my City Express. I am entering the van into our town festival parade. I am going to put a sign on the roof and need a roof rack to do that. Anyhow, I have found many name-brand, high-end rack solutions upwards of $350 with very fancy hardware designed to carry kayaks & bicycles and whatnot with low drag and no wind noise. The thing is, I'll be using this just once (1x) a year and I imagine there are solutions that handyman people use for ladders and what not that are not "over-designed" and are without all the "bells and whistles" that sell well under the $350 mark. After all, the van already has those weld nut receptacles built into the roof - which should simplify rack install. So, has anyone on here put a rack on their City Express work truck? Where did you find the rack?
Could you post pictures and a link?
