Massive modular synthesizer in bus?

So I have this $13,000 Synth and its im guessing 150 pounds with a solid walnut case. the bottom is Shipping weight: 120# and the top two are 30 and 40 pounds each so those will need their own rack but in hoped they attach to the bottom metal rails.



It splits into three parts the bottom being TWO MAN HEAVY.

I am wondering how do you mount metal bars to the side of a bus?
Example photo of what I want to build.


The bottom will be gymnasium foam to proect from shock. The sides will be tied down when moving and it should be able to come out if needed.

My question how do you affix the metal pipe so it wont pull out but wont go to the outside of the bus?

Yepp, 200 pounds!

if your deadset on using a "pipe rack" as pictured.....
I would use the pipe flange at the top in pic on the wall.
Located on the vertical centerlines of two+ different ribs.
One hole above the other.
Two of these toggle studs per flange.

Support all the weight from the floor.
The upper pipe flange to the wall will only be holding it all stable.

In my bus, there are threaded sockets in the ceiling and two places at different levels for threaded forged eye bolts for securing cargo nets... Apparently they've drilled into some heavy metal rails to add the sockets. I haven't pulled any sheet metal yet to see... But, I'm guessing they look like these from Home Depot, and I've physically seen similar at my farm supply store in the trailer section.

You'd be giving one of my buddies wet dreams...

He's all fascinated with his newest purchase, and I get to hear about it all the time.

Personally, I'm tone deaf... I have to use an app to tune my wind chimes

e-track is what all cargo trucks use, and self tapping screws into the vertical 'studs'.

Did that in my cargo trailer - nothing penetrated the exterior.
They make all kinds of attachments for e-track - i've made shelving, hung/attached things that far outweigh your synth.

grainger, harbor freight carry some things, or look here

Can I buy the rails and make my own trays? Trays are $185! Rails are cheap! Then brace the bottoms yes with legs?


Do I have vertical studs in my bus? (I wish I had horizontal bitches!)
