Don't have photos, had some, and accidentally deleted them. Anyway, I am hot on the trail of a very nice VW Made in Germany stamped 10 wood slat roof rack, complete, slats need a very minor sanding and varnish or Varathane, a new sticker, and it will be virtually new. Anyway, I looked in the Classifieds, for an OG 10 slat for sale, and I was astounded..are they really worth that much now? I saw 2 of them, one was like 900, and the other 1400...I know the asking price isn't the getting price, but Holy Cow.. ??? Shocked Shocked

Maybe the currently insane lumber prices are driving the market????
The all steel tubular "whistling" racks are much cheaper.

Asking prices are not selling prices. And buying them online is the equivalent of satisfying someone's "Buy it Now" price on eBay.

Go to VW swaps when they come back and you'll find a better deal.
