Help: Rigid Conduit vs. EMT

I'm planning on building a roof rack out of conduit. I just learned today there is two types (I only knew EMT). So my question is which would be better for a roof rack? In categories such as strength, weight, durability, etc. Any advice is appreciated. I need to make a decision and make this thing in about ten days before I leave home for the summer. I plan to hold my 31" spare up there and occasionally camping gear. Also, if you have advice as to how to attach this thing to my stock rails, let me know.

Rigid is thicker than EMT, but for the cost difference it really won't matter which you use. If it's well built then it isn't going to make much difference.
You can just use small ubolts to hold it to the roof rails.
