Has anyone mounted a rack on a high top van? I searched the forum but have not found anything.

I have seen a few of them done with racks. Check out CCVs website, while they do pop-tops and interior conversions, the tops are fiberglass and LOTS of them have racks.

I had a high top and looked into putting a roof rack and was told point blank that the fiberglass is not strong enough to hold anything over 20 lbs and even that must be distributed very well. I spoke to two different companies that put the high tops on vans and they both told me not to do it.
