High top roof rack mounting - Looking for suggestions

Thanks in advance for the feedback! I searched and searched the threads but couldn't find an answer to my questions.

I just purchased a Ford E350 EB and will be throwing a 24" Fiberine top on it. I have to choose between the Transit style top and the Bubble top. The reason I'm considering the Bubble top is because it's the only rack Aluminess
will make for my hightop van. Whichever I choose will be reinforced on the top and sides for cabinets by Fiberine when they manufacture it.

So, I only see roof racks mounted to the sides of the fiberglass tops. Aluminess and Fiberine both don't have any feedback on how much weight the rack/top can now hold.
*I don't plan on much weight being in the racks (Solar panels, surf/snowboard, traction boards, myself from time to time).

Here are my questions:
1. Does anyone here have a similar set up that can give feedback as to how much weight their roof can hold safely?
2. Is there another reputable company that will build a rack for fiberglass hightops?
3. Would a hightop with a flat roof be better in this case so I can put a low profile rack mounted right to the roof?

If you have links to relative threads please share too. I appreciate all the input!
