Hi - Stoke On Trent
« on: June 05, 2018, 02:25:20 PM »
Hi Overlanders,

Picked up a Nissan Navara last year, and i'm planning of mounting a Roofnest Eagle tent this summer, any advise on what roof bars or rack is best would be appreciated.

ill be touring France touching on the north of italy followed by St Anton in Austra and ill make my way back to the UK via Germany and Belgium.

Ill be wild camping and using camp sites dependent on the area, I like to use Ioverlander.com for good spots to camp.

Any other adventurers out there? I'd love to hear your stories.

Welcome to the forum buddy

Few on her Hav Nav's that can point you in the right direction. If I remember Neil has an MCB roof rack on his custom made

I don't know what the navy is like for rack mounting points but for the Hilux I rivetted in the rhino ray track to the roof skin coupled with sikoflex it's solid and from there you can sort out the bars

Plastic bars are not the best choice but I think ours would of held if it wasn't for the rack slipping out of the two mounts on the drivers hand side leaving only the passenger side two to hold the full weight
