    I just use gutter downpipes, screwed into the cross braces of the van roof. £10 of parts from B&Q holds 3 poles.

    That's 3 more than the border agency and look at the size of their budget!

    Rafa, drill 3 or 4 holes (measure the cross brace distance in the van first) drill holes in just one side of the pipe (not through and through) just big enough for your screwdriver to fit and then use self tapping screws.

    I went with black down pipes are it looks smarter.

    Hope that explains it simple enough.
