Espace roofbox

Post by nmcp » 30 Jun 2003, 18:45

Hello All
Has anyone fitted a roof box on the standard Espace (1994) cross bars. Just wondering if the curvature of the bars causes a problem.
Thanks
Nigel

Thanks Homer, their reply is copied below
>Yes, any box will fit, but Renault bars are normally much >wider than normal bars (32mm x22mm) so you will need >a 'wide bar' fitting kit £15.00

I bought a box from them recently and their service was very good. It actually arrived a day earlier than expected. And they got a replacement set of keys to me the next day after I lost them.
The keys somehow turned up at work the next day.[:I][:I][:o)]

Hi
I`ve got a 94 espace and the roofbox (Fapa Alto from the roofbox co.)fits no problem. The box is very flexible and bends to the curve of the bars. I made some extra brackets for the bars as the ends are plastic and I was a bit wary of them, mind you I do drive at 100mph in France for hours on end. The wide bars are on the later model.
