Toyota Land Cruiser 200
WHY USE OUR ROOF RACK Roof Rails from scratch :
1. Problems with Awnings ;
Most roof racks run right back to the wind fairing on a LC 200 Which means that there is no way you can fit a pole less wing awning beside the rack. (It has to go on top and 80mm forward of the rear of the rack which is Very high and stuffs up your chances of getting in to just about any car park)
2. Problems fitting Roof tents:
When fitting roof tents to 200 Series- standard roof racks add more height than is necessary, more weight, and are usual void of fixing points that suit the tent. To make things even worse, they add more wind noise and drag. (As well as being expensive and useless under the tent)
If its all about strength and a low profile - We manufacture Our own Roof rack foot rails for highest strength and lowest fitment possible. - See our Roof Rack Foot rails here

Pole Less Wing awnings and the 200 Series Toyota
Ostrich Wing Awnings
If your after a quality awning for your 200 - Have a look at the Ostrich. Its the Origional 270 Degree Pole Less Awning, It features 100% canvas construction and Trussed arms in aluminium keep it light and strong.
It takes 4 panels via Huge Zippers to all sides, and can be used as a wind shelter.
A beautifully made awning - fast set up and very solid. Works with this vehicle especially if a Bush Co tent is also being installed as the Last arm on the awning finishes on the LOW side. Mounting this awning onto this vehicle is tricky. Racks need to be moved forward or Custom Mounting holes drilled into the awning to get it tight up to the rear face of the rack. On the vehicles we've done it on - We mounted the Awning brackets on top of the rack for extra Height and Room.. Customers at 6"6 or taller see no disadvantage in the height increase anyway :)
The Best Rooftop Tents for the 200 series : (In No particular order, just our picks and why)
We have fitted Bundutops, Eezi-Awn Stealth, Boss Aluminium, Camp King and Bush Company Alpha/Black series tents to these vehicles. All tents mentioned do exceed the vehicles reccommended (warranted) roof load limits.
The Bush Company Alpha/Delta
This is a good strong tent, and its able to be mounted nice and low : if you already have a roof rail like Rhino backbone, or Front runner rack feet, then you can fit this tent directly to the roof rails (Without a rack ) using our roof rail adapter plate .See more on it here... Tough Touring Tent to vehicle kit. The Bush Company Tents suit the look of the vehicle well and are a well made unit. The are without doubt the tent to have if you are going to have to carry very heavy gear on the roof while touring...
Boss Aluminium RT1
Customers seeking ultimate comfort in Wind Rain Heat have fitted Boss Aluminium, tents to 200's with great success. This tent is Huge - Its High Lift clamshell design and meticulous Australian Manufacturing puts this beast of a tent ahead of the competition. The Boss can carry swags while also running solar - as well as carrying an inner spring mattress and 'home like' electrical comforts... The High spec versions of this tent are incredible.
For those wanting to remove any physical effort from their set up and pack up - you can't beat the bundutop with its RV winch motor sets up the camp with a press of a button. The Bundutop is a 4 sided lift with pop out rain skirt - making it our no.1 rated tent for Airflow and comfort especially in Hot and Humid areas. - These tents can be made removable via 4 latches after holidays using the "Tough Touring Cradle Mount'
Eezi Awn Stealth -
The stealth' is compact, ultra low profile Tent that has built in external ladder storage and is the thinest looking quality tent on the market. When you open it, It creates a much larger than usual internal space via a scizzor lifting front, Making it almost a 4 sided lift design.
