Can The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack MPG216 Carry A Roof Top Tent On A 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon


im looking to get the Thule Force XT Sport Roof Box and Tepui Foothill Tent to mount onto the [Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack - Aero Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails - Aluminum - 58inch Long] 1 do these crossbars fit on the 2020 OEM swing-out crossbars? 2 will both products fit on the cross bars in terms of their weight and width? 3 what is the max weight on these cross bars and if i were to sleep in the rooftop tent, will that add on to the weight i am putting on the crossbars? Is there a difference between the static vs dynamic weight?

The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 is designed to fit your 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory raised rails and will have a weight capacity of 165 pounds, but your Outback looks to have a 150 pound capacity. The Thule Tepui Foothill Rooftop Tent # TH37HJ does require the roof of the vehicle to have a higher capacity than this, so unfortunately, you will not be able to mount a roof tent on your vehicle. I double checked and this does go for Yakima as well.

The Thule Force XT Sport Rooftop Cargo Box # TH6356B can be loaded onto the roof without issue, however.

I know it is not what you were hoping for, but we do also have the Rightline Gear SUV Tent with Rainfly # RL110907 that can sleep up to 4 people, but it will not be a roof mounted tent.
