Kings Roof Tent - What Rack/Tray System

Hello everyone,

We recently aquired a Kings RoofTop Tent.

We are now attempting to select a suitable (slimline) roof rack system, we have narrowed it down to:
- baja rack
- arb tourer
- tradesmen

Problem with all these, they only range between 1200-1300 wide, tent spec stipulates 1400mm wide.
Most of the photos online for the options above, seem to show the rack being wider (i.e. out to the edge on each side of roof, noting FJ cruiser approx 1800 wide).

Big of a ramble above, but any information and guidance would be much appreciated.

Re: Kings Roof Tent - What Rack/Tray System

I would imagine that it would be OK to hang off of the edges like other RTTs. I'd just go with the rack that fits your budget and personal subjective aesthetic preferences the best

Also, you should let us know how it does. It costs about $1000 AUD less than my ARB Simpson III

I just bought the Kings roof top tent cage and I have the spine mounting brackets, it worked well, but it was bit of work to fit the tent, so if your planning on pulling it on and off it's not ideal. Mines hust stays on
