Hey Lonnie, where are the photos and stories?
No, I will take that back as it will only make us jealous.
I finally gave up on the Hyundai i30 rig.
Just got sick of overheating and scrubbing out back tyres.
But I do want to be able to car top the TI and tow the van.
Of course I really wanted to be able to get the car in the garage with the TI on top.
It is just so easy to hook up the electric winch, press the button and forget about it.
Well, I guess a little to easy to forget about it as I still haven't replaced the rivets on the knuckles.
Anyway, back to the point, I bought a 10 month old VE Commodore Calais.
So instead of sailing, I will be mounting a pole at the front and second battery.
Just a pity about the roof rack mounting points being half way along the vehicle.
And of course the Mrs doesn't like the look of added rails.
Still working on being the in same boat, so to speak, as you Lonnie.
Cheers, Brian in SA
This is the 3.6L which should make a better rig -
