    Can anyone please tell me if there is a roof rack kit for the Starfire. I am intending to buy one in the near future and one of the main requirements will be to carry kayaks on the roof. I am interested to know how the roof is made and how strong it is regarding load bearing, also can the roof be screwed into for attaching brackets, etc. I have heard that some people can walk about on the roof of their motorhome and use them for sitting on when watching racing events.

    Hello
    I would ask an expert before loading up you roof, I know some vans are designed to take extra weight and people walking on them but I thought that 50Kg was the maximum load spread out over the roof, if you intend to have a satellite dish, solar panel etc. you need to know what a roof rack (if it can be fitted) weighs plus the kayaks. When we had our solar panel installed the man did go up on the roof, but I noticed that he spread his weight out.

    Fiamma make a Kayak Carry Rack but you will need the cross bars which clip to the side of the roof.

    As to fitting on a Startrail please call Darren on 01-580-883062 or Glenn and have a chat to them.

    Not cheap though even with Funsters discount because you need two plus the rails kit
