The static rating for the roof is 450lbs. Still not a lot to work with.
Very true. 340 lbs for two people is really cutting it close. I guess the something like the Rhino Backbone system is the only non external cage option that I know of to add strength(?). Since the Superlite is so light I was hoping to be able to take it and the rack system off when not in use

I’m still confused on the rhino rack backbone because it has disclaimers all over it that you are still limited by factory load ratings.

Is it about the factory roof load rating or gvwr?

Good motivation for my wife and I to not put on weight. 290lbs between the two of us.

I think you need to add the mattress and ladder too.
