    Has anyone fitted a roof box onto a Hymer B class? I don't have any side rails just a flat roof. Possible solutions that I have thought of is
    Use silkaflex to fit aluminium L shaped sections directly to the roof and use them to clamp roof box rails on.

    I guess if no one else has any alternative ideas I will give the L shaped sections a go.

    I've got a roof rack with what appears to be the largest roof box in the world mounted to it...used to store a safari room.
    Not mounted on a Hymer, but an Autotrail with a flat smooth roof.

    In fact there are a pair of Halford roof bars clamped to the roof rack, with the roof box secured to the bars with U-bolts.
    The box wasn't mounted in the correct orientation, instead of being fore & aft it was mounted 90 deg out to allow skylights to open!

    Roof rack feet secured with screws and sealant, hasn't blown off yet.

    Hideous thing with all the aerodynamic qualities of a brick outhouse, coming off shortly for some solar stuff.
