I like Bbasso bracket plate with the thule mounts. I did bracket plates on my fixed top as well… In hind sight I wish I would have used unistrut on top of the van and mounted the rack to that, I've done a few of these this past month and it's a lot cleaner look.

I only wish my roof was flat.... Damm thing has more curves and contours then the walls of our E-Series!
Doing with the faux mounts was the only way to get a level way...
Insert a few choice words for the designer of my roof.

Four angle brackets worked well for this solar install I did on a friends van. We found the four nearly perfect spots on the roof. 3M 5200 sealant / adhesive for bedding, and through bolted with backing plate. Lowest profile I could get. Also installed the two MaxAir fans. But as Rob said, these type of tops have contours in all directions!

These “sticky feet” might work as well. Not sure why the rvsolarstore link is not working at the moment.
