Roof Rack for 2011 Ford Escape With Factory Rails For Thule Tepui Ruggedized Autana 3 Rooftop Tent


I have a 2011 Ford Escape with factory rails on top. I am interested in buying a rooftop tent that is pretty heavy - over 150# Thule tepui ruggedized Autana 3 Do you have a roof rack system that could carry that safely?


Expert Reply:

I checked with Thule, and can confirm that we have exactly what you need for your 2011 Ford Escape in order to mount the Thule Tepui tent you referenced. This tent requires a roof rack that has a minimum weight capacity of 165 lbs, mounts to factory rails like what is on your Escape, and fits Thule crossbars, as you can see by the cut out below of the directions I added.

We have all of that for your '11 Escape with the following parts:

- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Silver # TH711100 or Black # TH711120

- Rapid Crossroad Feet for Thule Crossbars - Raised Railing # TH450R

I confirmed with Thule that this rack system is a fit for your Escape, and in order to protect your rack and the investment you are making in it, I do recommend locking it to your rails with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400.

In regards to the tent, we have that as well, in either gray or green:

- Olive Green: Thule Tepui Ruggedized Autana 3 Rooftop Tent with Annex - 3 Person # TH8001ARG05

- Haze Gray: Thule Tepui Ruggedized Autana 3 Rooftop Tent with Annex - 3 Person # TH8001ARG04
