Mounting the iKamper X-Cover:

With a suitable roof rack system, the X-Cover fits on a wide range of vehicles. At 55kg, the X-Cover is extremely lightweight given its size. To check that your vehicle is X-Cover-friendly, please contact us. We are able to talk you through all the options for a suitable roof rack system, plus we can install everything for you. Get in touch for more info.


Thanks to our universal mounting system, iKamper roof top tents fit on most vehicles.

They are designed to be mounted on two normal cross bars (not directly on the roof of the car), such as ones from CRUZ, Rhino Rack, Yakima, Thule, or any other after-market cross bars (same bars you would attach your bike or Kayak to). Our tents come with Mounting Brackets 2.0, which are compatible with a max cross bar height of 3cm and a width of 9cm. For higher cross bars, Mounting Brackets 1.0 should be used.


Check your vehicle’s manual or contact manufacturer to know your roof’s dynamic weight limit. Dynamic weight refers to the weight supported by your vehicle when it is in motion, while static weight refers to the weight supported by your vehicle when it is stopped.


Make sure your roof rack or cross bars have a dynamic weight load rating of at least 57 kg.


When purchasing any iKamper Roof Top Tent, you agree and acknowledge that is your sole responsibility to determine whether your vehicle or trailer is suitable and safe for use and installation of the iKamper Roof Top Tent.

iKamper Roof Top Tents have two rails underneath the main panel, and are mounted on your cross bars with adjustable mounting brackets. The rails underneath the main panel are 4.5cm wide and 2.5cm tall.

To fit an X-Cover, your vehicle roof and the roof racks you are using must have a minimum dynamic load rating of 57kg. Roof Rack systems that use brackets to ‘clamp and tension’ around the upper edge of the door frame are not suitable for the X-Cover. Please consult the vehicle manufacturer regarding the roof load rating for your vehicle before purchasing any Roof Top Tent.

The crossbar roof racks on your vehicle must be at least 76cm apart.

Failure to follow these instructions could not only cause damage to your vehicle but could also cause serious injury.
