Installing information

 The minimum distance between the front and back roof rack should be no more than 1100mm, and both the roof racks and vehicle should have a minimum dynamic load rating of 100kg. Please check with your vehicle manufacturer that the roof is suitable to handle the weight. These tents generally aren't suited for smaller cars, however our soft shells are. This tent can not be mounted to both the cab and canopy of a ute, as the Ute will flex, resulting in damaging the tent.
