Roof rack for Fleetwood Pulse

any suggestions for putting a roof rack on top of subject RV? I want to carry two surfboards on this summer's trip. Fleetwood said the roof details are trade secret (go figure) but they did provide wiring diagrams, which show locations of wiring harnesses.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think I would want to put anymore holes in my roof then necessary. All you would be doing is creating leak spots. JMHO.

Can you use your hitch or ladder if your rig has a ladder? Here is one example of several that also has surfboard options.

Have made a trailer hitch mount

that works well. I just worry about nailing an underpass some day. It stands 11'4" above ground level. I believe min for major highways is 13'1" or something like that. Putting holes in roof is not the best way, but if someone has a method I'd be interested.
thanks,
dan

Roof rack for Fleetwood Pulse

How tall is your rig currently? It looks like it is 11 4" as you share and what is on the web. It may be about a wash in total height between the roof height plus a rack vs a carrier on the back? Hmm...

How would this be any different than any successful solar install?

Try a stud finder. They go by density so they may be able to tell the difference between the 'stud' and sheathing/insulation. Plus, the surfboard carriers I have seen haul the surfboards flat, so they would be any higher than the standard roof A/C.
