After reading a ton of the posts here and giving it some thought I decided I just couldn't bring myself to drill holes in the roof of my pup. I have a set of Yakima rails I bought for the roof of my truck's shell a while back that I could have installed, but again the whole thing about putting holes in the roof made me hold off. I have a dual hitch adapter, but with 3 or 4 bikes it would be a tight fit between the TV and the pup. And putting it behind the pup was never an option for me either. So what was left? As much as I hated to have to buy more bike racks since we already have a 2 and a 4-bike hitch mounted carrier I bit the bullet and went all in on a new roof rack for my truck and 3 Thule ProRide racks. The roof rack I decided on is a Rhino Rack with aero bars with the towers and brackets for a naked roof. The ProRide rack fits perfect in the slots on top of the bars and feel VERY solid when tightened down. Today I was only able to get one bike (my son's) up there to mock things up because 2 of the 3 racks I ordered have not come in yet (back order in one place and apparently slow shipping from the store that did have them). The bars are 54" wide and it looks to me like I will have plenty of room for 3 bikes up there and will be well within the max load of 165lbs for the bars (each bike is just under 30lbs). This was not a cheap solution by any means, but this is going to work for me and will allow me to leave my pup's roof alone.
