Does this tent require a minimum bed rack size to support the base?
The rack needs to be rated to hold the weight of the tent (185lbs) and occupants. Tent mounts slide in the lower mounting rail to accommodate any crossbars (left to right on the vehicle) with a spread of up to 52". Tuff Stuff recommends your crossbars (left to right) are no more than 45" apart for optimal support. If you need help finding an appropriate bed rack, let us know.
