Greetings fellow burners
I'm planning how to pack my rental cargo van, but now that I'm taking stock I realize I'm running out of room in the van. Most of the packing-space is used up by the folded hexayurt.
So I started toying with the idea of transporting the yurt on the roof of the van, using the plywood-sandwich mentioned in other threads.
Now, it's a rental van, so it doesn't have cargo rack. Racks cost a pretty penny, so I was concocting up a way to use lots of ratcheting straps to tie it down(length-wise and across).
And a moving blanket between the wrapped-yurt and the van to protect the pain.
I've already read a couple of horror stories on this forum about stuff falling/flying off, so I thought it was best to consult the stars/eplaya board.
Any ideas to make this safe and sturdy?
Maybe a better make-shift rack (that doesn't rub off the paint of the rental van)?
Or is this just a recipe for disaster and I should kill this idea?
