Has anyone run two aluminess boxes on the back of an E350? I am considering moving my spare to the roof and adding another box. I have yet to use my spare (knock on wood) but use the other box extensively and would like the extra storage.
The plan would be to add an aluminess roof rack, move the spare up there and then add another deluxe box. It would be a pricey move but that added outside-the-van storage might make it worth while.
Anyone done this?

I never thought 'living in a van down by the river' would become my dream situation.
I will dig up some pics that are in the gallery archives. There are some of double boxes (1 atop another) and dual boxes (side by side). There are also pics of exotic racks, bike carriers, etc. on top of boxes. Also pics of doors that open sideways and drop downs that serve as shelves for grills.
what size are your tires? I had a 285/75/16 under the van in the stocker spare location. I think getting anything bigger than that might require getting really creative though.
"understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of your car, oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of your car, horsepower is how hard your car hits the wall, and torque is how far your car moves the wall."
Do you already have a rear underfloor storage box? If not, I'd seriously look into that before trying to relocate the spare tire, etc. You can fit a LOT under there, and it's pretty easy to access (at least in my van).
