Hello guys, Im looking for suggestions on material to use for building my own roof rack. As well as mounting designs or hardware. I have a 1973 dodge b100 tradesman. 109” wheel base. I’m wanting to build one thats full length I believe unless I decide otherwise once I start building.

Check your local marine-boat supply shop for tubing and accessories.

I've noticed a few roof rack videos on U-Tube, Van lifers mostly. Are you looking to build a walk-on or just for cargo/solar?
