Alright
 
Due to the roof shape on my Autosleeper I can't really strap a Surfboard to the top of the Van, does anyone know of a system to strap a surfboard on the side? A siderack if you will.

Picked them up of ebay for £40.Made by Thule.
They need to be pretty sturdy as they get a lot of use.
I drilled and fitted a stud to hold the top in place.
I sold the other half of the set to Baz9799 who has fitted his without drilling though his roof.

I can't figure how mine work, unless they are designed for holding down the helium boards of german surfers?!
