Thank you!Hah, Kirk Creek, one of my favorite spots. Never seen a Ridgeline with an RTT, looks great!
Well obviously the vehicle is made to be able to roll over so the roof can hold the weight of the vehicle. Yes there would be damage, but the roof won't collapse in if the vehicle was placed upside down. The factory roof rack is rated at 110lbs of weight. It is unclear if that is the cross bar rating or the whole system rating. I used a yakima system on my factory roof rack that has a max weight of 160lbs. The tent weighs about 130lbs. There have been no problems with my woman and I on the roof! Puts you up above so we had great views of the ocean! HAHA!What's the weight limit of the roof / roofrack and tent?
The only downside I can say is that gas mileage does suffer a bit. I don't know exactly how much because I haven't looked at it yet, but I can tell it does. And the wind noise at 80mph. It isn't anything someone who listens to the radio can't handle, but going from no racks at all to this, I can tell it's there. www.tepuitents.com is where I got mine, however if you just google rooftop tents, you will see there are lots of manufactures. Tepui was pretty close to my home, so I just picked it up. Their instructions for installation are wrong, but that is my only comlaint of the tent!That roof tent is freaking cool. I have seen them on old land rovers and jeeps but not on our RLs.
Please tell be more and where I can get one. That would make an awesome winter and beach tent.
Sounds like you need some sort of fairing. I put one on my lumber rack that helped a lot. The truck is so quiet without anything up top, it's a bummer to have all that wind noise for long trips, it really does wear on ya. If we were driving old Jeeps, we wouldn't care though, would we?The only downside I can say is that gas mileage does suffer a bit.
