I believe there's 2 types of roof racks you can get for our delica's.
A basket for the roof that can bolt directly to your vans roof, however this requires drilling holes in the roof to mount it, I don't believe many people go this way

Or the more common option is a gutter mount system.
Thule and Yakima both make gutter mounts for high roof vans. I believe both are around a $300 price tag.

Currently I have the Yakima system mounted to my van, it works well, however I found that the clamps for the feet bend out the gutter on the van, and that the inside of the clamp sits quite close to the metal of the vans roof. To solve any potential scraping I added some 1/8" rubber pads on the back of the clamp.
You will also have to purchase the high roof risers with the gutter clamps to make it compatible with out high roof.

If I was to buy a band new system I would probably go with the thule setup as it looks cleaner.

There’s also rhinorack.ca. I use their RL210 legs and HD Rack. But there’s a fitting guide on the website that includes our Delicas so check into that.
