Roof Rack on a Classic

Didn't want to hijack the Ladder thread, but as I was reading through that thread, I started thinking about having a roof rack on the Classic. I have a collapsible ladder that works really well accessing the roof of my Classic, but haven't really seen anyone who has any type of roof rack.

Yes, I know, I shouldn't be up there, but as much work as I've done on the roof so far, I feel like I've got the 'step on the rivet line' pretty well accomplished. I've got a canoe as well as a SUP that I'd love to take along on next camping trip, but having a tough time figuring out how to bring along either since I won't be towing a car behind.

Any thoughts? Seems like I saw an Argosy motorhome with roof rack, even went so far as to have a storage pod for their Burning Man trip.

Thanks, Derek

Any thoughts on how to attach this to the roof of a Classic?

Buy a set of rails or an SUV and bolt them on.
