It's classed as second hand, but it's basically as new.
This rack was fitted/purchased brand new with my new T5 van (supplied by SMG Tonbridge, Sept 2014). It was only on my van for a few months and then removed, as it hadn't been used. The roof rack has been stored in a garage ever since (fully protected from the elements).
The brand new fitted cost of the rack (fitted by SMG VW) was £600 (including VAT)
Note: It is off the Short Wheelbase VW T5 Van (2003 to 2015), with the standard roof and the rear tailgate.
The Rhino Modular VW Transporter roof rack is a heavy duty system, which is ideal for carrying multiple ladders, 8 x 4 sheets or long length items. It was a popular van roof rack, supplied by all UK VW Van Dealerships at that time.
With robust welded steel construction and 2-part electroplate powder coated black finish, the Modular Rack is high-strength and durable, with heavy-duty construction. Complete with full width rear roller for easy loading.
The Modular rack comes in three robust sections which are bolted together (interconnecting bolts supplied) to form a one-piece full roof rack. The six-inch side rails prevent loads from shifting in transit and provide ideal tying down points. Wind noise is reduced with the addition of a front aerofoil.
