So we had a Reimo pop top installed on the van and this weekend drove to Devon with a low cost playabout Kayak (well, Kayak shaped lilo from argos).
We're now hooked and on the lookout for a decent Kayak.
Question is, has the Reimo got enough roof strength whilst down to carry a couple of Kayaks and can you install roof rails on it..... and if both of those answers are yes, anyone got a recommendation for rails (or will any fit?)

I think the stated weight is 40-50kg.

I have just had Reimo active rails fitted and then purchased some thule roof bars which are compatible.

I spoke to Reimo and they did not recommend any of the other roof rails due to the amount for fixing points on the roof and spread of load.

We personally did not like the look of the active rails but are looking at carrying a roofbox so had to go for practicality over style.

If you want the details/part numbers of the Thule fixing kit let me know.
