Can anyone explain how these pass safety regs given that the vehicle roof limits are usually between 100-150kg given that a tent weighs around 100kg then add 2 people+ bedding etc is it overloaded

I wouldn't be putting roof top tents on the basic rails that vehicles come with, after market racks properly built should share the load over the roof structure, roofs aren't supported by much, just a tin umbrella and those dinky rails (I have them on the jeep) have pretty pith poor support.
