Tough Touring roof racks (Roof top tent fitting kits) for Toyota Prado 120 / 150
Tough Touring have manufactured one piece roof rails specifically for the Prado to provide the ideal foundations for roof top tents. . Wighing in at just 13 Kgs - and Sitting as low as 15mm from the vehicles roof, they are specifically designed to mount quaity roof top tents directly to this vehicle.
Tough Touring Roof rails (The Foundations of all racks) are unique in design, folding 'outwards' to allow easy access to the tents mounting bolts - keeping the tent low as possible on the vehicle by negating the need for cross bars or any rack platform on many types of tents.
The Outward mount profile also allows easier tent fitting and removal -
While negating East west Crossbars on some tent types will further minimise vehicle height and wind noise. for more information on our roof rails and racks for tent mounting - see here- 'Tough Touring Racks -
The selector on the shop page will ask you the combination of tent and vehicle - All tent types require different combinations of either roof rails, bars, adapter plates or cross bars... Leave that part up to us. We' know what you'll need and what you wont.
Roof Rail Adapter plate for quiet Toyota PRADO 120 and 150
Some time ago we began to manufacture a roof rail adapter system that allows fitment of the Bush Company Alpha and Black series directly to FRONT RUNNER roof rails - see roof rail adapter plates here (negating the need for the platform rack itself). More recently, we adapted the roof rail adapter system to suit Prado vehicles especially in combination with the Boss Aluminium RT1 , Eezi Awn Plate or Stealth Tents too...
for the combination of Front Runner and Landcruiser Prado 150 and 200, the work has already been done. and roof rail adapter plates are a bolt up operation - no drilling required. The Adapter plates also 'square up' the taper in the roof line of the prado rails - giving owners the opportunity to make their roof tent fit up easily removable as all mounting bolts are accessable on the outside of the roof rail (can be accessed beside the vehicle)
Tough Touring Roof rails and adapter plates are built to sit between PRADO and the following tents:
Bundutec Bundutop, The Bush Company Delta and Alpha and Black series, Eezi Awn Stealth and Blade , Boss Aluminium RT 1 and Camp King.
