I’m making a camper conversion and putting in a skylight. I want to make a simple roof rack that is tall enough to provide clearance for the skylight. I will make the cross bars out of wood or steel. What I need is some sort of footing... is there a way I can buy just a set of footings that will fit into the rails that are designed in a way that I can then attach a vertical piece of wood or metal to? The stock set don’t seem designed in a way I could do that... My search’s have found nothing. Is “footing” the proper term? I attached a pic of the stock footings. Thanks!

I made these to mount my Yakima rack. I took 1/8” x 1-1/4” by 8” steel band. Drilled 2 1/4” holes in them and put a 1/4” by1” bolt through one. Tack welded the head of the bolt to one piece of band. Removed the back rack mount and slid it into the rack. Put the other band on top and bolt it down. It is solid. You could weld any kind of mount to the top band before you mount it and attach what ever you wanted.
