2019 Honda HR-V LX CVT AWD. Crystal Black Perl with many many mods!
I drove 90 mph with all my skis and snowboards up there a few times this winter without any issues. Please explain the scientific basis that supports your hypothesis that you think it’s going to fail?Point taken, I still think it can hold my weight on the tent just because when the force is pointing down the roof and rain channels should take it, and those flimsy pieces will be under compression, materials on compression can take a ton. But I do think the wind pulling it back will be too much shear stress on those flimsy pieces and they will fail miserably
I'm thinking of making a DIY camping trailer, buying the frame, and adding some storage for kitchen/porta-potty/generator etc and putting the tent on top with a much more solid installation, the HR-V in the US is not rated for any towing but I think is because of lawyers, in other countries you can tow a 500 kg / 1100 lb trailer
I would more concerned with breaking the CVT from towing when that is clearly not allowed and in other markets the car is equipped with a manual transmission rather than our cvt setup 🤯
