    Hello all,

    I am heading up the coast in Elsie May (1974 PopTop camper) at Xmas and was wondering if anyone had a storage solution to carry the boards in the back so I can still have passengers.

    I've looked at some older threads and can't seem to find any solutions.

    Thanks in advance

    There have a been solutions put up over the years :rolleyes: ...... think one involved brackets fixed at the rain gutter line inside & the board(s) strapped in ;) ..... not sure how you would get on if the fun(s) weren't removable ..... length of boards would also be a determining factor o_O

    My 6ft Mctavish Sumo tucks up in the pop top just nice. The nose goes in the rear sliding shelf section and I use an occy strap across the other end. My 9ft longboard is another story though. Im keen to get a 10ft board but may need roof racks for trips away.

    10'6" sup does not fit in a Notchback! Doubt it will even fit in the Squareback. Or the Low light if I ever get it on the road. Thankfully roof racks work.;)

    I have a Sopru and my short board, 6’7”, fits in above eyeline by putting the nose in the rear shelf and the tail supported by a bicycle inner tube and two carabiners suspended from the pop top lift handles. Works really well and is in a cover too.... day to day sees it sitting on the rnr laid down, on top of my 9’6” Keyo. Nose of the longboard is supported by a simple bracket bent up out of aluminium rod hanging from the tall cupboard behind the driver’s seat.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Thanks all for the feedback. Been a bit distracted as an old bloke reversed his Prado into the front of Elsie May the other day. :-(

    I will post some photos with whatever solution I put in place.

    Merry Christmas

    That’s a real bummer.

    Hopefully not too much damage

    Dear All,

    I went with the boards hanging from the pop top. I can fit my 6'8" board in and may even be able to get a mini mal in as well.

    Thanks again

    Guy
