Show me your long-roof setup! [Touring Specific]

Dedicated thread for Wagon roof setups like your rails, bars, boxes, baskets, lights, bike carriers, etc...

Please be sure to post not only pictures, but information about what parts are used!

Would love to see some inspiration and contribute my own shortly.

Thule rectangular bars and feet. Old school Sportworks bike racks, now Thule Sidearm. Best bike rack that I've ever used.

Thule Aeroblade crossbars and I forget the brand of the roof pouch. Only used it once, so far, but it works great. (I had a better pic, but can't find it.) I've also carried all sorts of stuff on the Thule bars: A mattress, fencing, misc lumber, 2x4" metal tubing, etc.

Thule Aeroblade edge bars to fixed points. Two Rockymounts trays. I have a Thule cargo box that fits in the center when needed.

Rail-less with roof bars: I love it! No intention of getting rid of mine, but still so cool to see.

We have a thread on using these on E46 wagon here somewhere.

I have a set I'm about to pitch if anybody wants them.
