Default Rooftop tent

Hi guys, im going to get a roof top tent, i just wont to know how you have instralled it onto you Pajero.
Ive got a Np with the factory rails, do i just buy some crossbars and fit the tent to them? if so do i get 2 0r 3 ? any particular sort?

Or should i be looking at a totally differnt way of doing it?

Any pictures of what you have done would be great.

Thanks

we have the rhino sportz rack, just 2 of them and they do well. Opposite Lock retail a quick locking system.

Also just be aware of the weight, ours weighs approximately 80kg's which doesnt allow for much more on the roof as the roof rails allow for 100 kgs.

Just put it on, I should say.

The 100 kg mentioned are dynamic ones: whilst driving.
I do not kwow what you're doeing at night, but I was in the roof tent with three (very bad weather). Nothing happened.

Good luck. It's very nice to sleep on your car !

We love our roof top tent, it is so good.
Yes you are right about the weight being dhynamic whilst driving, just have to be aware og ther goods you have on the roof in addition to the tent whilst driving to not exceed 100kg's
