Ok. Finally had some times to grab some images of the Thule rack system. The camper top has upgraded struts to handle more weight. We've camped with 2 SUPs on top without issue. That may be only 40 lbs.

Thank you ! I see you have them mounted outside of the interior area on the roof , on the overhang of the roof between the the canvas.
I had been wondering about doing that thank you.

Curious how you secured the track to the top when mounting outboard of the tent? The rack installer I visited today didn't feel that there was enough clearance underneath for the hardware (nut & washer). I'd really appreciate info on how you did it.

Thanks

I have a 2005 traverse with a ski box on the roof as well. Looking at replacing the lift struts. How many lbs is your upgraded struts? would you go light or stronger or is it just right?
