So not to dig up a dead thread but I finally decided to model up the V2.0 idea I had. This option might be about the same cost as V1.0 but is all bolt together so a little more DIY friendly.



This is the general shape with some added length over V1.0 so as to maximize usable area.



This is with V1.0 overlayed to show the difference in length. The plan would be to also include a piece of aluminium angle at/around the back to prevent cargo from sliding off.

According to my modeling software, V2.0 would be about 5lbs lighter than V1.0 but the hardware was not accounted for in this calc and might make up that difference. V2.0 would also place the cargo a bit higher than V1.0 so there's that too.
