I'm looking at putting a roofrack atop our vehicle, but one minor problem is the height !!
Distance from the (substantial) gutter and the roofline is 540mm- so looking for something with legs of about 600mm.
I've seen some good looking fabricated types but haven't had the camera available to take pics. Any suggestions??
Cheers

Dave, MATE
you will need breathing apparatus at that altitude. And when you do have stuff up there your "Centre Of Gravity" will be your next enemy.

Where would you put the ladder? and your parachute will hinder your movements while up there.

Hi Col,
Not intending stowing much on the 'rack.
Just the Southern Cross tent in the flat pack, and a spare tyre (case only)..
Cheers- see ya next week !!

Signman I have some mont blonk extra long legs gutter mount that may suit (will fit high roof troopy) & if not you can simply just get some flat alloy or steel plate to suit & just buy the ARB gutter clamps. all you need to do is drill 1 hole in each leg & the Arb clamp & bolt will simply clamp the flat plate to the gutter you just make the legs the height & width you need it works well & is simple
send me the height you need & I will check the legs I have
regards Vince

Hiya Vince
As I had said - the distance between the gutter level and the roof 'peak' is close to 540mm. So allowing for a bit of a gap between the roof and the cross bars the leg height would have to be about (say) 600mm.
If you have something suitable- that would be great, otherwise I like the idea of using the ARB type clamping system.
Still good for a meet up at William Creek?? It'll be my shout !!!!
Cheers
David
