Installing an Adventure Kings Roof Top Tent Tourer on your Dual Cab Ute!

Dual cab utes are currently some of the most popular vehicles in Australia and part of their popularity is their flexibility and versatility – they’re ideal for work or play and make a great base to build your dream camping set up.

Similarly, a dual cab ute will allow you plenty of options when fitting an Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer to your vehicle.

We’ll start with the obvious;

Roof Bars

Fitting roof bars or a solid steel roof rack system, is the simplest way to get a Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer fitted onto your vehicle. Included with your tent is a fitting kit, which works by fastening the Roof Top Tent’s built in mounting rails to your factory fitted roof rack bars directly. This method will work easily without any special modifications and still allows full access to your tray or tub so it’s ideal for people who use their utes for carrying larger bits of gear like motorbikes or other gear required for work and also for going away on weekends.

NB: Always ensure the roof bars you use are rated to carry the full weight of an Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer.

Canopy Mounting

If you do have a fibre glass canopy and with the necessary reinforced roof and roof bars, you can also fit your Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer on top of it. Fitting to your canopy means you can fit a roof rack above the cab for even more gear  storage and also means you can choose to mount your Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer so it opens up off the back or on either side of your vehicle, this is another way that you can maximise your ute’s flexibility.

NB: Just remember to confirm the canopy and any attached bars have a weight rating sufficient to hold the Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer.

One of the more popular first modifications made to tradies 4WD Utes is a fully customised alloy rear canopy. If you have an alloy canopy already on your vehicle,  you can mount your Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer directly to it provided the frame and structure of the roof  section of the canopy can handle the the load.

It really depends on your canopies design and what it is engineered for, but most custom alloy (or steel framed) canopies will easily be strong enough to hold the weight of a Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer. Again this method gives you the choice of where your Roof Top Tent will open whether it is out the left or right side of the vehicle or even  if you prefer your tent to open over the tailgate, so mounting your tent to your canopy is a great choice for versatility.

NB:  as always double check with the fabricator or manufacturer to be sure it’ll hold the weight of your Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer and you’ll be one happy camper.

Custom Bar work

Finally, you can always mount your Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer using an over the tray ladder rack, a Roof Top Tent Rack, or even a custom made tent specific rack, systems like this are specifically designed to sit over your Ute tub and will keep the overall height of your Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer lower which reduces overall wind drag for better fuel economy and fuel tank range, , increasing your total height clearance and keeping your centre of gravity low. These are another great choice if you want the option of mounting your Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent Tourer  off the side or back of your vehicle.

NB: As always check the weight capacity of the rack to make sure it’s up to scratch and will safely hold your roof top tent.

 

There are so many options for dual cab utes, there’s no excuse not to have the ultimate camp setup, and the best way to build your ultimate camp setup is to start with an Adventure Kings Tourer Roof Top Tent!

 

Whether you want it over the cab, over the tub or tray, even fitted off the back or side of your vehicle is completely up to you!
