    Retrax XR with overhaul HD adjustable on 19 screw here.

    500 lb on road, 300 off road capacity.

    Decided against the ruggedized Autana 4 because at 240, and about 50 for an awning, it was pushing me too close to the 300. Was also wanting to leave capacity for a skinny warrior by Yakima too, perhaps.

    If closer to the 300, would keep the racks set as low as possible. And would manage the offroading, particularly the side to side.

    I think I'm going to go with a lighter tent because I don't want to baby my way around quite as much. I'm guessing that the more compliant rapt suspension probably helps a lot though.

    Appreciate you already have the tent, (and a very nice one at that), so you'll be near the top of the range. I think even the most bulletproof rack system will be limited by the strength of the box.

    Be good to know what you land on. Good luck and enjoy.

    I’ve got a retrax pro with a Yakima Outpost HD for my CVT tent (240lbs). So far so good.

    I'm a huge fan of this FrontRunner set up as its easy to remove when your not taking the tent around and it compatible with a roll-top tonneau
