Pulled this from Megos' instagram story. I've got a Westfalia camper and have been trying to figure out where to best mount one. Anyone who's more handy than me know how a mount like this might be best accomplished? Specifically what parts would I need? Cheers all.

There's a good chance they are riv-nuts placed into the existing holes in the van sheet metal. 1/4in or M6 bolt through the board into the rivnut.

Look at the picture there is a piece of wood behind the hang board and u can see 2 bolts sticking out on the edges of it. It looks like 2 screws in the center top holds of the hang board that are going into the piece of wood behind it.

Megos is a boss. That thing is just balanced up there.

Got some new photo beta off of FrictionLabs' instagram. This one offers a much better view of what's going on. Anyone have any ideas?

Rivnuts do not fit above the sliding door because the sliding door track is bolted in place there.

Megos' hang board is attached to the van with gutter mounts similar to this photo but there are many different styles depending on the vehicle. Google search gutter mount for your specific vehicle

These are the same type of mounts you would use to install a roof rack

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
