Default Roof Rack?

Hello all! I'm a proud new owner of a 92 Funlite. Was wondering if its possible to install a roof rack on these. Items carried would be very light. sleeping bags etc. Thanks

Congrats and welcome to the forum. Do a search on roof rack. There are plenty of suggestions there.

I am always an advocate of carrying a rack on your tow vehicle. That way you are not drilling holes into your trailer roof to secure brackets etc----

Adding to this, the stress on the brackets will probably eventually cause leaks damaging the interior.

Last year I would have thought it would be OK.
This year I repaired serious water damage in the wall caused by a tiny 1/4 hole incorrectly drilled by the factory when installing the box awning. So I would say don't risk the damage.
