    I have a 2015 Jay series that came with roof rails already installed. I am trying to find out what kind of roof rack I can install on these rails. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

    I did a quick google search and looks like Sporttrack Sr1020 could work.

    Are you sure its compatible with the existing rails? It says you have to drill into the camper.

    I know it’s been a few months, but I wanted to update this thread for others in the future.
    The sportrack ST1020 WILL work on the Jayco rails but not with the screws provided. I had to go to Lowe’s with a foot from the kit and find a screw long enough to work.
    I found a 30mm screw worked bur I had to shim it up with some washers. 25mm may work too without needing to shim.

    I have a 2015 Jayco 1007UD with the same rails you described. It looks like you can get some square nuts and insert them into the rail and secure that way without having to drill into the roof of the camper (which is what im trying to avoid). Can you post or send me some pictures of your install. Ill be purchasing this same system and would like to see what it looks like. Thanks!

    These are the best pics I have currently. The channel on mine was about 3/4 inch wide, so if you have a flat threaded piece of metal that size, I’m sure it would work

    This looks great! Any advice on install or opinions on how it turned out?

    It turned out fine. Like I had in my original post, I had to get longer screws, but it held up fine on the 700 mile round trip I did. I did check the screws because the rubber feet settled a bit as they contoured to the feet and the screws were a bit loose. Easy adjustment.
