Product Questions

Hello. I have the tall tent mount kit and will soon be receiving my RTT. I will eventually buy the side surfboard mount you guys offer. Will I be able to mount the surfboard accessory after the tent has been mounted or will I need to do so beforehand?

Thank you
Question by Nicholas
We recommend at least putting the hardware for the surf mount in the T-slots of the rack first. This way, you'll be able to reach everything once the tent in installed.
Answer by Front Runner
Hi would this fit a howling moon rtt on a patriot roof rack (4.4"w x 1.5"d bar)
Question by tim
Our tent mounting kit is meant to work as a universal solution to fit any tent onto our roof rack. The tall version is 57mm high and raises the tent to ultimately clear the side profiles and raise it off the rack cross slats for easy access to the mounting hardware.
Answer by Front Runner
Could you give the the center to center distance of the bottom mounting holes. Thanks
Question by Daniel Tagtow
The distance from center to center of the bottom mounting points is 8 inches (203mm).
Answer by Front Runner
When mounting an RTT, is it necessary to have the tall mount in addition to having a awning mounted as well? Or since your awning mount moves everything off to the side, could we use the standard tent mount?
Question by Corey
The standard Tent Mount Kit (TBMK001) will work fine. The taller tent mount kit allows easier access to the hardware for installation, and creates clearance for some positions of Hi-Lift Jacks and Shovels, etc. The awning shouldn't interfere, as the tent an the awning open on different sides of the vehicle.
Answer by Front Runner
What are the dimensions of the upper platform of this bracket?
Question by Bugs Nelson

The mounting platform is 2.5" x 3.5".
