I may have a solution for you, but it doesn't appear that the 2002 VW Eurovan has the rain gutters that would be required to mount the Rhino Rack Roof Rack Legs # RL210S2. If you wanted to drill into the vehicle, you could potentially mount the Rhino-Rack Artificial Rain Gutters - Qty 2 # 739AHALF on the sides of your vehicle. This would give you spots to mount the Rhino Rack Roof Rack Legs # RL210S2, and then the only additional parts needed would be a set of crossbars. The # RL210S2 can fit either Heavy Duty Square Bars like the # RB1375S (sold in qty of 1) or Vortex Aero Bars like the # RRVA137B-2 (sold as a pair); both of these particular part numbers correspond to 54" long bars, but you would need to measure the width of your roof and choose bars that are approximately 6" longer to properly mount the bars on these legs.

The other, and potentially easier solution would be to use the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long - Black # 298-SX6000B, which provides a roof rack kit that can be removed and repositioned to fit your needs. The SeaSucker systems use vacuum sealed suction cups to securely stick to your roof, and have a capacity of up to 150-lbs depending on the capacity of your roof.

I've linked a review video of the SeaSucker rack, as well as links to our selections of Rhino Rack Vortex Aero and Heavy Duty square bars to this answer for you to check out.
