Hi all, just got a 2015 GLA45. Considering putting a roof tent on the car as I live in Canada and would love to use this car to go camping. I cannot find much information regarding this topic anywhere for these cars. Has anyone done it? What rack/ tent did you use? And problems?

thanks I look forward to hearing back

There is going to be a weight limit for the Roof Rails. Start from there. It may be 200 Lb.
Its higher than that. half a dozen fresh, pressure treated 2x6 10ft plus some other sticks

well distributed, and seemed to tolerate the ,.... same lateral loadings :oops:

how far can you go? type of load is a big factor

some popup tent, 50lbs, Canadians are normal sized, 180lbs, 20lbs stuff all told, good to go.

unless he brings a Manitoba girl up there,..... dey be like Nebraskans
