Designed for use when fitting roof top tents to roof bars on ARB canopies, these mounting kits enable the tent mounting rails to be positioned directly over the top of the roof bar/internal bar mount. This allows the roof top tent to be positioned centrally to the canopy and not off to one side which is often the case due to the tent mount rails being a similar spacing to the roof bar mounts.
ARB Engineers have conducted testing to ensure compliance with AS1235 Road Vehicles – Roof Load Carriers – Roof Bars. This standard tests the structural integrity of the system for resistance to lift, longitudinal and lateral slide as well as resistance to corrosion. The tent system meets and exceeds the requirements of the Standard when the mounting kit system is used in conjunction with ARB internal support bars.
These kits replace the current universal bolt and plate arrangement supplied with the roof top tent, providing a more integrated mounting solution. Two kits are available depending on the style roof bar used. Kit 4100005 is designed for roof bars that accept T-bolts in the top channel such as Thule Professional, Aero & Wingbar plus Rhino Vortex, Sportz & Aero.
