Epup roof rack?

Post by Canada17 on Tue Aug 08, 2017 10:46 am

Does anyone have, or has seen a roof rack for an epup? I'm looking for something like the vintage VW style with metal and wood.

Thanks.

I want to do one on mine as well. From what I've understanding....the VW roof racks can be used but they are a narrower vehicle and the rack will need to have the mounting points altered. When you see how they are made....there really isn't anything to them and wouldn't take much to make them work.

The vw ones are the wrong profile unfortunately so they just don't look right imo

Roof rack on a e-pup...Won't that look strange unless your bed is full?

I looked at old station wagon roof racks for vans when I first got mine. But went in a different direction. Of course those are too large for yours...make a vintage car trunk rack of some sort?

Here's a picture of a vintage Triumph Spitfire rack. Probably smaller than you want, but an idea.

I have a carter carpac rack I'd sell. Check out classicracks.com

I have it on Reno Craig's for 650 but would do 600. Matt

I saw on thesamba.com a guy makes ol' school HWE roof racks. I emailed him and asked about them. He told me that he has made one for a Corvair van. He had them for the full length, half and for the bus trucks. Maybe he can make one for your Epup.
