Hi guys, 

I have a question, and I am sure my fellow hubbers would conquered this issue before. 

 

I did not want to revive an old thread deadish thread, or highjack that thread, but I came from here: https://community.bikehub.co.za/topic/55832-thule-roofrack-on-bakkie/page-3

 

Basicly I own a 2016 Toyota Hilux Double cab fitted with an Armidillo Auto Roll Top Cover. I own a Scott aspect 910 aluminium bike, which I had from 2014. Currently I simply open the cover and load the bike on the back with the front wheel over the tailgate with a blanket or so between the bike and the tailgate. 

 

I am planning to buy a new carbon dual suspension bike and do not feel like this is a viable option anymore. 

The Armidillo cover does not come with rails to attach a roofrack to, and it will necessitate drilling into the cover and my bakkie, which I would like to avoid if at all possible.

 

I must add that I would exploit having the loadbars by fitting a rooftop tent also, so this option from Skitch is quite attractive: 59463179_2085711674816772_70737052011436

It seems like it would be possible to mount the rooftop tent in between the bikes still:

Have anyone here mounted roofracks over the Armidillo cover before, and if so, what would be the best route to go.  

 

The rooftop tent is an added bonus, and bike safety take precedent in any event. 

 

What are you guys' thoughts on the roofrack over the Armidillo, and the best way to go about it?
