1.The rails roof of the vehicles

(1), Vehicles have a number of different roof shapes and features built into them. Below we’ve listed the possible variations to help you understand what you’ll need to have to install a Car roof tent. 

First, your vehicle needs a rail of the roof. The most common roof rail is Flush rails and Raised Rails.

If your vehicle is bare roof , Thule racks provide the best match between

the rack and the specific vehicle, the shape of its roof and door jam, etc.

2.Vehicle roof load limits

Crossbars are attached to the steel frame of your car, so the weight of our car roof tent is spread through the strength of the steel. It is important to check that your vehicle roof load limit is higher than the weight of the car roof tent which you’re purchasing. Most vehicles have a roof load limit of 75kgs +. The respective weights of our car top tent models:

Weight limits explained

It is common to wonder about the added weight of people inside your car roof tent, and how this affects your roof load limit. In short, the roof load limit of your vehicle is for dynamic loads, i.e. when your vehicle is in motion. As people will only be inside your car top tent when your vehicle is stationary, the dynamic load limit is not a relevant figure. The steel frame of your vehicle, which the rooftop tent sits on, can take hundreds of kilograms of force, as it’s designed to roll in an accident.
If you are not sure about your vehicle rooftop weight limit, the best is to check with your vehicle manufacturer.
