Guys, I travel with the Oztent RV5 on the roof and I am using Frontrunner load bars. Would 2 load bars be sufficient, on top of the B pillar and on top of the boot window? Or would it be safer to add another bar in the middle at the C pillar?

I travel with an RV5 but I use a full Hannibal rack for mine which works well. I think I would be inclined to add an extra bar and perhaps fabricate something like the Drifta item in the attached photo. I think this would support the tent framework better. Drifta have some great products and it is worth having a look through their site. https://www.drifta.com.au/product/oztent-rv5/ That is a Drifta replacement bag for the Oztent in the photo as well.
