Not all roof rack fitting types are suitable for fitting rooftop tents. Generally, rooftop tents can be fitted to bars that use fixed point, vehicle specific track, or gutter mount legs but we do NOT recommend using clamp-style fitments or non-specific vehicle tracks.
These conditions MUST be understood and observed when a roof top tent is fitted and used:
- The load rating of the vehicle’s roof is never exceeded when driving on the open road by the total weight of all items fitted to the roof – including rooftop tent and bars.
- The load should always be spread evenly over the bars, with no concentration of weight at either end.
- How much weight can I actually carry on top of my vehicle?
Confused by how much weight you can actually carry on top of your vehicle? Don't worry, it might seem confusing at first, but this helpful guide to calculating load ratings will help.
