Do a search for roof rails at the top of this section my thoughts are included in amongst the threads - my rails are now a few years old it is possible that there are newer better versions on the market (made specifically for the doblo rather than generic).
ebay usually some about or httpwww.direct4x4.co.ukp-140-fia...oof-rails.aspx httpcgi.ebay.co.ukfiat-doblo-ALU...item3ca1338525 httpwww.uk-tuning.comacatalogroof_rails.html

there has been plenty of discussion about roof rails take a look here for starters

Yep same as the ones I have - but a different seller. httpwww.fiatforum.comdoblo11117...ailable-2.html Mine were from ebay seller who also comments on that thread & cost about &16390 all told so those in the OP are a bargain. Have to say that although they arent a perfect fit (the footprint doesnt fit the recesses in the roof) they complete the look far better than the cheapo plastic screws fiat leave behind . And they have served their purpose many times over.
Actually comparing my pics with those those look to have shorter end pieces & more rounded mine look longer & have a more gradual sweep down to the roof
You can order roof rails if you buy new so there must be a few doblos out there with genuine fiat roof rails. Sludgeguts has the after market roof rails too although IIRC they werent a perfect fit...they look the dogs doo dahs though
See my thoughts on these rails... httpwww.fiatforum.comdoblo11117...ailable-2.html The plugs (bolt covers) quickly became lost so I simply packed a load of clear sealant into the holes. I have to say that the overall effect is rather good & the rails have served their purpose. For ladders etc I use a couple of pieces of wood (courtesy of an old pallette) slung under the rails (so touching the square

The quest still continues........... This photo is (I think) from a motorshow in Turkey (where Dobs are made ) and look at the great roof rails. (Probably need to click photo to get bigger size). Anyone got any mates in Turkey Ive tried translating roof rack into Turkish and using Google but no success. Attached Thumbnails   __________________ Peter Hayes doblo 1.9 (120) Dynamic 2007   Quote
The rails are really useful Ive had mine for about a year. (original thread... httpwww.fiatforum.comdoblo11117...ailable-2.html ) Have to say that the chrome rails is now a bit tarnished but they have served their purpose. Still looking for cheap & stowable crossbars. If I can get the right things Im thnking about mounting a tube inside the roof to slide the rails into. there is loads of storage potential on the underside of the roof.
Cheers Sludgesaw your old thread whilst searching on the subjectonly went for these cos they look a different designespecially that rear attachment pointfor those interested have a look at d4x4 Product Gallery for these. Heres hoping anyway cos I dont want any roof dimples and waterproofing is crucial up here in Sunny Scotland (meant to be aluminium rather than chrome too) Intrigued by your idea of
I would be very interested to know what you think of the roof rails as I have looked at those as well. For info I bought the sun shades for my 08 doblo and they have been great although have been unable to fit the shades to the rear sliding windows as the new type doblo has some padded trim on the door which the shade does not fit around.
Sorry guyslifes a bit too hectic to get round to roof rails and forums just nowthey did arriveall very well packagedvery impressed with the quality of the rails and good fittingsdid a quick eye up on the roof holes and they look okjust need some more hours in the day to get round to it. The steel cross bars are not as pretty as the ally ones but functional for my purpose. Obviously I cant fully recommend the rails til I fit them but they look the mutts nutswill come back to you asap...
Thanks. I will look at eBay. Is yours a version 2 doblo Would these sort of bars be ok on a new model At least no rush..... Thanks again.
Yes it is just a threaded hole (OK a hole in the roof with a nut welded to the underside.). I would suggest using a bit of plumbers PTFE or similar just to make extra sure no water can seep in it also acts as a locking mechanism for the bolt to prevent it accidentally working loose.
Thers been much discussion about rails. Heres my take httpwww.fiatforum.comdoblo13355...ails-ebay.html Which also includes links to my original pics. Ebay rails not the best fit. IMO they improve the look - this motor should come with rails. But cheap to buy & easy to fit also been used many many times to carry everything from ladders to sheets of wood fence panels etc. derbydoblo thanked for this post
You can buy a roof rail kit from fiat to fit yourself same as rails ordered as an option. Part number 98812852 however cost is 312 quid incl vat.
Excellent writeup Ron Nicely complemented by your scheme and pic Would it be possible to make tag or maybe make a sticky The above info is going to useful to others no doubt. I have a question (possibly more I cant think of just now -D ) - how difficultfiddly is to remove the ceiling cover trim and to put it back correctly Again thanks so much
Yeah quite right Im buying a foldable stepladder to access the roof Im also fitting a narrow long roofbox to carry my gear so I have the other half of the roofbars free for my longboard Will take pics ASAP. Thanks again for all your help Poperon very much appreciated
Novitech do some but you wont be able to add bars onto them after (go to their shop section for prices ). If you look at this thread and go to the last post you can see a different type but as you say have not been able to find these anywhere. I will try and contact the guy who owns that doblo but hes foreign so there may be a language barrier
