When it comes to versatility, simple crossbars, like ROLA Roof Racks Heavy Duty Bars, are hard to beat.

Crossbars are lighter than full platform bars, which means that when carrying heavy gear, like rooftop tents, there’s a substantial weight saving by mounting it directly to the crossbars.

Depending on the mounting brackets of the rooftop tent, it’s often easier to access the mounting brackets with crossbars too. There is less in the way of getting arms and spanners in underneath to tighten the mounting bolts.

The alloy crossbars come in a variety of lengths, and the feet are available to suit most vehicles.

Rola Roof Racks also make an alloy platform tray called the Titan Tray, which is an excellent option for those that need to carry more gear on their bigger trips.

The Titan Tray bolts on top of the crossbars, making it easy to remove when it’s not needed.

Accessories like Rola’s MAXTRAX and awning brackets can directly be mounted to either the HD Bars or Titan Tray.
