If your tent is a Quatrö or a Family, the rack should not have a ridge that would interfere with the opening of the tilting floor on the right-hand side. Moreover, the bars must not be too far apart, nor too close, in order to be able to secure the NuFix fastening system. Do not hesitate to send us photos of your roof rack so that we can help.

It depends on the speed and size of the vehicle. The shell of the Hussardes has been studied aerodynamically in order to present a very low Cx (drag coefficient). On the road at 80 km/h, the additional consumption is not noticeable. On the motorway, depending on the size of the vehicle, overconsumption varies from almost nothing (large vehicle) to 20% (small vehicle). Speed has a significant impact so we recommend reducing it to limit consumption.
