I would like to build a rack for my van I do not have a penthouse so I will be attaching to the gutters. What I need help with is the brackets that attach to the gutters. I have done some web serching and have found nothing. I am looking for the brackets only. any info that you guys have I would appreciate. Maybe some pics.

I'm using Yakima towers on my rack. With standard bars, they are only good for 150 lbs/pair. But, the bi problem is deflection in the bars lets the tower loosen up. My cargo basket has zero deflection, so I go well beyond teh tower's rating. I've had upwards of 1500 pounds in the basket with zero issues.
That said. If I did it again I'd use the Defender towers posted a couple posts up.
