I wonder if this low-profile bed rack can support the Yakima 2-person tent. Ideally, I'd like to have the tent installed just above the bed on rails like this, instead of up high creating drag and reducing my hybrid's stellar mpgs.
Its likely that it would work, but something you could inquire to the Yakima folks.

There are some other options for bed rail racks. I saw something on the Home Depot site that seems sturdy.

Just a FYI if you have existing roun bars and stuff that goes with it, you can buy the replacement bedrock round bar towers https://yakima.com/products/bedrock-tower-w-pad
The bedrock HD tower set clamps are compatible with the round bar towers.

Also now that i have a set of HD tower I might try to design and adapter for the HD towers that will allow the round bars to be removed without removing the towers.

I have installed my bed rack using an 1/8" thick 2-1/4" wide rubber strip to keep the bases some what level (from McMaster-Carr - High-Strength Multipurpose Neoprene Sheet with Certificate, 12" x 24", 1/8" Thick 70A Hard). If you don't use a shim/spacer the bases will be tilted inward and you won't be able to attach the towers or they will will attach but be in a bind.

Had to shuttle a bike out to my daughter. So I dug around and finally found my old Yakima fork mount bike attachment.

Here it is on my Bedrock.

Round bars! Old Skool baby!
