Roof Top Tent- Mounting Bracket/Cross Bar recommendations

Hey Team,

Ive been a lurker for a while. Committing my XK for camping road trips now.

Has anyone had luck with roof top tents and their commander? Ive have yet to find a product directly aimed at the Commanders mounting areas for heavy duty bracket/cross bars.

Alot of the bars I see for the commander do not list their max weight capacity. If they do, its only like 150lbs.

Im amazed Amazon doesnt have more selection. And several companies want ~$400 for essentially a few pieces of steel- and they dont even list the max weight.

I know its possible, but have yet to find a real solution labeled for the XK. I figure I'll just have to get generic cross bars and mounting brackets that should fit the roof.

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

OverlandCommander is the only one that I know of on the forum that's running a roof top tent - but he hasn't been around much lately;

Maybe you can try PM'ing him - you can get his information from the link to the thread I posted above.
