You'll have to bolt artificial rain gutter brackets to the sides of the roof. Tracks along top are another option. You'd use rain gutter towers with the brackets, and tracker II towers with tracks. And I don't recommend getting the aero bars. Just get the regular square ones. They are half the price, and you aren't limited in your accessory options as you are with the aero bars.

Generally--I say again...generally--most Thule and Yakima racks when set up properly hold up to 165 lbs. However, adding that much weight to the roof of your vehicle radically changes the center of gravity and may cause extremely adverse reactions when braking and/or maneuvering at high speeds. You should always attempt to keep weight up top to a minimum. And make sure your canopy can actually support what you plan on carrying up there. And the 165 lb. number I threw out their refers to all four towers--not just one pair. Always check your vehicle and canopy owner's manual in regards to weight limits, and observe all installation weight limit guidelines when purchasing car rack components.

Yes--assuming you have a rack on top. If you have a factory rack, though, you need to double check Thule's website (www.Thule.com) to ensure the brackets will be wide enough to fit over your crossbars. The brackets that come with this box are designed to fit round, square and most factory crossbars, but check the website just to be sure.

This is not the correct tower for a pop-up camper. You will need to use Yakima Control Towers and install either Yakima tracks or Yakima fixed mounting points (landing pads). The Yakima tracks use Yakima Landing Pad 1. Your choice of fixed mounting point really depends on what works with your configuration.

Another option is to install Yakima Widebody brackets on the side to simulate raingutters. Then, instead of Q Towers or Control Towers, you would use the 1A Raingutter towers. There are tall versions available (spacers, etc.) if you have a unique situation requiring you to mount the brackets lower than preferred.

Either way, your pop-up camper must offer a stable and secure bolting surface, lest your rack tear/shear completely off during a sudden deceleration or turn.
