    It's a Garvin Industries rack. You could probably build one about as nice for a lot less money. I from www.jackit.com for a good deal but still fairly expensive. We've used it alot though.

    The little "rain gutter" sections bolt into roof via 1/2" drilled holes and rubber well nuts. The rack then clamps onto them like many racks do with a rain gutter. This rack is 7'x5'x6" and was biggest listed when I bought it. I think one a couple feet longer would be more cool.

    Hey Tom, is it possible to get an outside measurement of the overall side to side distance of the basket without the mounting brackets.
