A number of the people in the Jimny club here have them. They are the Chinese version. The owners appear to enjoy them.

I would likely be tempted but they appear to be a little heavy and they aren't too easy to mount and remove. For those reasons, I will stick to throwing my 2-man pop-up onto the roof rack when I do an overnight trip.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

This is a bad idea. One person in the tent puts it way over the weight limit for the plastic roof bar mounts.

I appreciate it won't be driven with people in but the weight is so excessive I'd fear the tent falling off with the people in.

Maybe I'm just being spiteful but I will go one further and say that anyone that mounts a roof tent to the stock rails would deserve to wake up in the morning and find themselves on the ground.

I won't say they are all that exist but the only examples of roof tents I have seen are the ones that mount to roof racks that are hard mounted to the studs for the stock rails. It is still very possible that your point is a valid one Kirkynut.

In the pictures they're on the standard rails!

Yeah, I don't understand how they are going to get away with it, can only think the people who tested it were wafer thin, I'd stand no chance :woohoo: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Good catch Kirkynut. For the Jimny, I have only seen the ones like the Frontrunner, ARB and Chinese copies.

I don't know what the liability laws are in that country but it sure seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen.
