Have you considered fitting a wind-deflector like those on the prime-movers when hauling a high-top trailer taller than the cabin. It reduces the wind-drag at high speeds

Re:


I have, but it's basically pointless as I'll be putting a full length roof rack on eventually. The setup I have at the moment is basic but effective for camping in general, just not touring. The rooftop tent tent sits in just two crossbars for now. There's nowhere to even mount oone

Re: Vehicle Roof Top Tents


DAM YOU FACTORY NISSAN ROOF RACKS!!!! emoticon

Purchased a second hand ARB Simpson 3 roof top tent today only 12 months old but only slept in 4 times for a bargain $800! Tent is in mint condition.

So I set to work pulling off my roof basket which has a custom bracket to hold my tred recovery tracks. I plan to sell these to purchase a set of maxtrax instead.

Anyways I had to make up some new steel brackets to hold the RTT to the roof racks as it came with a rhino setup which i couldn't use. Long story short I made all the brackets and moved my side awning to its outer limit and the tent won't bloody fit on.

The nissan roof racks don't go to the edge of the car as they angle down to the mounting points on the roof. If they were square as the rhino mounts are then I would be laughing. Off to auto one in the morning for some rhino bars and a few hundred more dollars.

Check eBay or Gumtree first, as you might get lucky with finding a 2nd hand set of Rhino bars.

Re: Vehicle Roof Top Tents


Just purchased the suitable rhino heavy duty bars from auto one, 20% off came to $292. Being in Broome they didn't have the correct feet in stock so have to wait a week for them to arrive emoticon

So next week I should be able to mount the roof top tent and awning again emoticon
