Question Looking to add a trunk to a 2010 Nomad

Has anyone added a trunk to their 2010 or newer Nomad? If so I'm looking for ideas. With the way the passenger backrest is designed it doesn't look like it would be easy.

Thnx. It's not so much the trunk as it is the mounting of it. I'm hoping someone has tried it and was successful.

I've read in another thread that a Voyager trunk will mount right up, if you use all the voyager pieces.

I have a champion trunk thats packed and ready to go. It's high end fibre glass has new hardware in a bag. Need paint and a blemish repaired but your painting whatever you get.
$200 plus shipping........ Wompus racks are the 1st choice for custom setups. Made like a tiger tank....

OK Thnx. My local Kaw shop can get it and they gave me a price cheaper then any sites on the Net. Now its a matter of convincing the wife. She doesn't want to give up the passenger handrails. I'm gonna start looking to see if there are 3rd party handrails out there for voyagers.

It would be nice if the mounting hardware could be made to work with the handrails. I kinda like how they look.

Marvellas, but you have to enlarge a couple mount points on the sub-frame, and tap them for the fasteners.
