Recommended Roof Rack and Roof Mounted Tent for 2016 Lexus RX 350


Hi, I want to install a roof rack for my Lexus 2016 RX350 no sunroof. I am planning on installing a roof top tent. Can the rack hold the weight of the tent which is approximately 110 LBS plus 2 adults?


Expert Reply:

The Yakima SkyRise HD Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars - 2 Person - 400 lbs - Tan and Red # Y07436 weighs 101 lbs and can support up to 400 lbs. It can be installed on roof racks that are rated for 165 lbs capacity but they can not work with roof racks that require clips for fit. It is compatible with vehicles that have raised side rails, fixed mounting points, or flush side rails. The extra weight is largely supported by the ladder of the tent.

If you have the flush mounted side rails on your 2016 Lexus RX 350 then I recommend the Inno Roof Rack consisting of # INXB123-130, # INXS450, and # INTR163. This is rated for 165 lbs and is able to utilize that rooftop tent.
