What Parts do I Need to Add a Third Yakima RoundBar to My ARE Camper Shell with Tracks?  


Hi, I would like to add one more Yakima cross bar for more support with a roof top tent. I have Yakima Control Towers. I put 2 towers in my cart but Im not sure about the landing pads to connect to the rails on a 2014 ARE shell. Plus I only need 2. Thanks

In addition to the x2 Yakima Control Towers # Y8890027, you also need the Landing Pad 1 for Yakima SkyLine and Control Towers # Y00221 in order to attach the towers to the tracks. If you need an additional crossbar to complete the setup, we unfortunately only sell the round bars in pairs of 2. Those are the Round 48" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack # Y00408 or the Round 78" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack # Y00411.

If you need a great option for a roof top tent, I recommend the Yakima SkyRise HD Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars - 2 Person # Y07436. Not only does the SkyRise HD include a telescoping, aluminum ladder, it also boasts a 400-pound weight capacity.

It is important to note that it is important to make sure your ARE shell can withstand that much weight. I recommend consulting with the shell's owner's manual to make sure you abide by all of the guidelines.
