The tent is assembled on crossbeams. The lower tent shell is provided with two stable continuous aluminum C-profiles. Two crossbars are usually sufficient for a secure hold. Depending on the positioning options, a third cross member also makes sense for the XL models. The tent must lie flat and straight on the beams.
The distance between the crossbeams must be 80 - 100 cm for the M and X models! For the XL models, the distance should be approx. 120cm.
There are a number of manufacturers of crossbars - it is important when choosing that the carriers are suitable for the vehicle and roof tents in general. If you have any questions, contact your vehicle dealer. On request, crossbars from brands such as Rhino Rack or Front Runner can be ordered from us - otherwise the brands are also represented by Taubenreuther.
If available for the required vehicle, we can mount Rhino Rack and Alu-Cab crossbars purchased from us. In all other cases, the customer must come with pre-assembled crossbars for roof tent installation.
When assembling the hard-shell roof tents on unsuitable carrier systems, damage caused by the base carrier is excluded from James Baroud's warranty!
