    Looking to get the most out of your Transporter van? Then check out the all-new Wedgetail! Our Wedgetail platform roof rack is a new generation roof rack, combining the aesthetics and functionality of the new generation composite assembled rack with the strength and functionality synonymous with the ‘Tradesman’ name. Wedgetail roof racks integrate the all-new Wedge-lock glass-reinforced corners that significantly increase the strength of this design with a full off-road rating for your Transporter.
    With so many variants available on the Volkswagen Transporter range, you’ll be sure to find the perfect configuration to suit your needs. This clever Australian designed platform roof rack provides flexibility in vent, solar panel and awning locations. Flexibility is key, therefore our many configuration options make it easy for you to transport all your lifestyle gear including kayaks, bikes, surfboards as well as all your camping, boating and fishing gear.

    All Wedgetail racks are manufactured right here in Australia by longstanding industry veteran, Tradesman Roof Racks.


    The Wedgetail roof rack to suit the Transporter fits by securing sturdy brackets to the existing 8 mm hardware positions and then is sealed to the roof using suitable natural cure silicon. Once these are fitted we fasten four of our Wedge-wing mounting kits to which the Wedgetail platform connects, giving a higher load rating and improved aesthetics.


    The Wedgetail platform uses sturdy crossbars. The crossbars incorporate a heavy-duty channel both facing upwards and downwards. These channels allow any Wedgetail accessories to be quickly locked in or out; this also means that a large variety of alternative accessories can easily be fitted to the Wedgetail rack if necessary.


    All Wedgetail racks come standard with a wind deflector to minimise wind noise as much as possible. As well as this Wedgetail racks also include our unique Wedge-flow crossbar design which is the culmination of years of design experience in minimising wind noise. The Wedgetail rack to suit the Transporter is no different; we understand how frustrating a noisy roof rack can be and have put every effort into ensuring that the Wedgetail rack is as quiet as it can be.


    One thing you can be sure about with a Wedgetail rack is that no matter what road you are on in this country our full load rating will apply. Wedgetail racks do not need to be de-rated in off-road conditions due to the design and construction methods used, including our wedge-lock corners. The load rating for the Wedgetail rack fitted to a Volkswagen Transporter is 100 kg (you must be aware of your vehicle's roof loading. This information will be available from Volkswagen). It is essential that you take the weight of the Wedgetail platform off your roof rating, and this will give you your legal carrying capacity (the reason we don't list this on the website is that it can

    The Wedgetail platform roof rack has been developed to fill the need for a new generation composite assembly platform roof rack with the strength to maintain its full load rating on the toughest of off-road tracks.

    Built to fit a wide range of 4x4 utes and wagons and selected vans, the Wedgetail platform roof rack is fitted onto a set of mounting rails that are bolted to mounting lugs connected into the sub-structure of the roof or onto the roof gutters and held in place by bolt-on clips.

    These mounts spread the weight of the roof rack and its load over the whole mounting system and have the strength to cope with extended periods of off-road use.

    Manufactured using 6060 grade aluminium and extruded in Australia to custom profiles for use as frame components or as crossbars. The frame components are designed for maximum dynamic strength while the crossbars are designed to withstand the direct downwards pressures generated by the weight of items carried on the rack or by accessories fitted on the crossbars.

    The frame bars are pre-punched with holes at between 250 and 310 mm spacing for locating of crossbars and fixing of wind deflectors.

    All bar components are powder coated in matt black.

    The corner units are moulded using a composite of nylon and glass-reinforcing mixed with other strengthening substances. Once cast the corner units are machined to remove surplus materials and mounting holes are drilled.

    The Wedge-lock corner units have a flanged nut inserted into the outside of the bolt hole. The ends of the corner units are fitted into the frame rails and 8 mm stainless steel bolts are used to fix them in place, creating a strong joint.
