You can get those washers from McMaster-Carr. They are about $8.00 for 25 of them.

Received the spacers from RA 2 weals ago and I finally was able to swap the barrel spacers on my Prinsu...I added butyl tape on the mounting points too.

What are those RA spacers machined out of? I just took my Rhino Rack Backbone off and resealed it just in case, but the feet don't fit very well in the roof ditches. I did some measuring and the ditches themselves are very inconsistant width-wise. One was 25+mm, one was 23+mm and the other two were in the 21mm range. It's tough to get it to sit down in the ditch without gouging the sheet metal. I did grind on it a bit and enlarged the mounting holes, but it doesn't meet my OCD standards. Maybe some spacers to get it out of the ditch will help.

How have the spacers from RA held up? My only concern and this may be unfounded but I wonder about the strength and durability of 3D printer plastic. I don't have any plans to mount a roof top tent up there but with how much shifting, vibration, flexing there can be when you off-road I wonder if that can lead to any cracking or durability issues with plastic.

It's been less than a year, but I have used it a few times already with a RTT. I can't comment on the durability yet.

I installed my prinsu a month ago with the RA spacers. They seem to be holding up just fine so far.

My plan was to do Prinsu and RA mounts.

My question for you all that have done that, what else did you need to use to seal up the rack? Or were the mounts themselves good enough?

On the whole rack or sealing/mounting feet?

I basically looked at all the systems available and blended a bunch of them (for the rack and mounting system).

Itís not done yet, still have to make the faring and get some stuff powder coated but itís close!

I'd be curious where you got that rubber gasket.
