    Which ManRacks Rack Would be Easier to Mount a Pelican Case to?

    Hi, recent Tee Dub owner here with a stunningly beautiful 2018 I picked up a few months back.

    Itís time to get some luggage racks as Iím exhausted of having to lug a backpack everywhere I go.

    Iíve settled on the Manracks, either the one with bungie loops or the one with a Rotopax Bracket welded into the actual rack itself.

    My intention is to mount a Pelican case to the top of the rack. I have no experience with Rotopax brackets and want to know; can nuts and bolts be used to secure the Pelican case to the rack directly to the Rotopax bracket or would I be better off getting the regular rack with bungie loops and using U hooks to secure the case, which is something I want to avoid due to perceived simplicity of using the Rotopax bracket.


    Thanks!

    I'd go the rotopak mount rack. You could mount using those bolt holes. Easy.
