2014 Nissan Xterra Rooftop rack for Yakima SkyRise HD2 Tent

Hi!  I am hoping to buy this tent on May 15th during your sale, but not sure about how to attach it to my roof.  I have the original raised side bars on my Xterra which are super beefy.  Do I need to purchase something else.  Trying to keep expenses as minimal as possible right now, so if I can get by with what I have I would prefer to do that.  

Thank you!

@satyadharma Thanks for reaching out!

In order to put a roof top tent on your Xterra, you will need to have cross bars. To clarify, you have side rails on your Xterra, but not crossbars? If that is the case then you will need to purchase after-market cross bars. The Yakima Timberline Towers and the Yakima CoreBars 50" are the recommended set up for your vehicle based on Yakima's fit guide.

Hopefully this helps, feel free to reach out with any other questions!
