The only thing you have to be careful about is the weight rating of various racks. I was looking into the Yakima models when I first started but was disappointed that they were rated at only 250 lbs.

That is how I got to the Surco Safari rack (along with some great help from Roadie) which is rated at 350 lbs. As I was planning for a tire, 2 gas cans, 1 water can, camping equipment, and a hi-lift jack at the time, I definitely needed the higher weight rating.

Now I'm no expert on roof top tents, but due to the weight requirements don't they usually mount straight to the vehicle's roof hardware?

If you require more expert opinions, I'm sure you can find them here:
