Land Rover Discovery 1 & 2
About: The Disco 1 & 2
The Land Rover Discovery 1 has a short but wide and high cargo space - just 500mm deep but 1m wide and high. While the D2 got a deeper rear at almost 650mm (Same as the Prado 120/150). The Extra square shape is handy for carrying gear, especially via cargo nets mounted in the ceiling above fridges etc. The Roof is a classic super strong gutter mount - allowing fitment of our 1 pice gutter rails or traditional gutter mount rack feet and cross bars
Roof racks: Made by Tough Touring for the Disco 1 & 2
The Disco 1 and 2 has a wide 1450mm roof and flat square gutter mount roof gutters - making it an easy vehicle to install touring racks and gear on. Its roof load limit is unknown (look it up) but we've put enormous loads on ours without issue.
The large wide space allows even the biggest of tents to sit well on the vehicle, pics below are of a Bundutop King mounted forward 800mm from rear. Huge roomy accommodation and room as well for 2x 800mm x 400mm x 400mm storage boxes and rear ladder access to the tent.
Wind noise and roof racks:
Like all vehicles, The Land Rover Discovery 1 and 2 present their challenges. Wind noise on coming from roof racks with East-west bars, in particular, can be noisy at highway speeds.
Our Tent to vehicle kits are designed to be the strongest on the market, low profile, lightest weight, and low wind noise. And we think we've nailed it!!

Rooftop tents: what's the best rooftop tent for the Disco 1 & 2?
We like the Bundutec Bundutop tent the most for this vehicle. Its ability in Wind Rain, Humidity and Heat is unsurpassed. It also works in well with the Disco 1 and 2's shorter roof line...The Tents footprint is a mere 2.1m long, giving some room at the rear after you negotiate the ladder to climb in and turn around.
