The Rev Tent Platform x includes brackets and bolts that slide in 2 channels underneath the Rev Platform x. The included hardware clamps around 2 load bars or 2 rack slats that are already attached securely to your roof. (We just provide the fun camping gear, you supply the cross bars or roof rack!)
You can see details of how this system works in the assembly guide HERE.
What size cross bars will the Rev Platform mount to?
FOR USE with LOAD / CROSS BARS: The bars must be straight. Bars with too much curve over the span, such as most OEM bars, are not compatible. While oval shaped bars can be used, square or rectangular bars offer best fit. Bars must have dimensions no wider than 10cm / 4” and no taller than 4cm / 1.5”.
FOR USE WITH ROOF RACKS: Only compatible with flat deck style racks. A raised perimeter may interfere. If rack slats are larger than dimensions listed above for the cross bars, you may need additional mounting hardware. Please refer to the manufacturer of your roof rack for the recommended way to mount a roof top tent.
The C6 Outdoor included hardware is about as ‘universal” as it gets, but there are many different styles and sizes of roof racks and the C6 Outdoor included hardware may not work in all applications.
If you are mounting the Rev Platform to cross bars/load bars, the bars should be positioned no closer than 24" / 61 cm , and no wider than 40" / 102 cm. The recommended distance between the bars is 32"
The included bolts are 2" / 50mm long and 1.5" / 30mm long.
