    Wouldn’t it be cheaper to just have one made rather than buy a Prinsu?

    Just for the love of god, don't make it look like a prinsu and then try and sell them here. You're gonna have a bad time.

    Wouldn't that put all the weight just on the two mounting bolts up front?

    I run a Comet SBB-2 NMO Mount on my roof. They’re easy to take off and there’s a cap you can screw on in the antennas place.

    This due to TW’s crappy linking.

    Martin Rack is the one that comes to mind for me. @geekhouse23 and I were on a smear campaign war path for that guy.

    She ain't stock anymore.
    I've had the Prinsu for about a year now, no point in buying a new rack or having something custom made when a few snips will do the job.

    I have DCLB so I'm going to cut the prinsu after the second set of mounting points then over and up so it'll fit, might not be the prettiest thing but I think it'll work just fine, and should be plenty strong.

    My inspiration lol, he got the gears turning. He has an a DCSB and only has the two front mounts and very little room on his rack. I figure I should be able to run at least two crossbars and a mounting plate with my set up.

    There likely is, but I haven't found it yet. Prinsu has a shorty rack for the Habitat, but it uses the 4 forward mounting points and I'd still end up having to cut to make it fit. I could just go without a rack, but I'd hate to lose that space, if I don't have to.

    Yes it lies flat. You actually have a little adjustment room. I’d say the full arc is about 95 degrees so you can make it vertical at full up and it has a slightly negative axis when fully retracted.

    If you zoom in the passenger roof below you can see it when retracted.

    This might actually work. What mount is that, and does it fold down?
