    Can you put a roof top tent on a RAV4?

    Yes, you can mount a roof top tent on your Rav4 without any issues. But, if you have the original, factory roof rack on your Rav 4, you will want to first check your owner's manual to make sure it is strong enough. 

    You need to confirm that the dynamic weight capacity is higher than the weight of your tent, and that the static weight capacity is higher than the weight of your tent + people + any other gear you'll want inside. Also, the rack must have crossbars (the ones that run from one side of the car to the other). 

    If you find that your original rack is not up to the job - no problem! There are lots of great after-market rack options available for the Rav4. Here are a few:
