Thule Roof Rails - without longitudinal bars - Berlingo Mk2
#1
I have a Berlingo Mk2 without longitudinal bars. I have been trying to come up with the best method of getting a roof rack. Either longitundinal bars and then a roof rack. Or a Thule system that doesn't require longitudinal bars, for example.

I didn't know thule was an option, not sure it is...

On roof-bars.co.uk the following is an option for berlingo vans:

THULE Roof Rack For CITROEN Berlingo (II) 5-Door Van 2008-2018 With Fixed Points (WINGBAR EVO)

THULE WingBar Evo 135 Roof Bars
THULE Roof Bar Rapid Fixpoint XT Fitting Kit 7017
THULE Fixpoint Evo 7107


Has anyone tried this route? Any experience, any other thoughts?

I used Thule bars on my B9, which didn't have longitudinal bars. There were small raised clips on the roof into which the feet of the Thule bars locked in place.

Was a good system which worked well for me

That's sounds good, I don't suppose you remember the kit number. My worry is the kit is for Berlingo vans apparently. I will phone up the company to check I think in advance of ordering. thanks

No difference between the van and car when it comes to the roof rail or rack mounting points, all the same. The B9 is imported as a van and made into a car later. The van came first. It's a van derived car, not the other way round.

Zion, I disagree, The original M49 Berlingo and Peugeot Partner were built aas cars first in France then made into vans, when upgraded to M59, B9 and K9 the car and van were the same.

It is an important point with the M49/B49 for anyone whhas had to argue with or ends up arguing with DVLA as I found out

I had the same argument with the DVLA over the B9 and that is what I referred to, I never mentioned the M49 OR M59.

The OP has a B9, 2008-2018. The B9 started as a van first, was launched as a van, and then the car came afterwards. There was no B9 car version to begin with. That's the info Citroen customer services sent me when I tried to argue that my B9 was a car derived van, they said no, it's a van derived car as the van launched first.

My point was, the roof rail mounts are exactly the same on the car and the van, as the OP made a reference as to which was which. The is no difference on the roof mounts, that's all I was getting at and was especially referring to the B9 but the same can be said of them all.
