Its fiberglass. I wouldn't drill any holes in it. It has "rain gutters" that you can get a thule to attatch to, but I wouldn't put much more than a couple hundred lbs on it.

i wouldnīt even dare to do that...
but when your going through the hassle of moulding a roof tent (great idea - i thought about that just theoretically - but i think itīs a bit too short)
i would just build an aluminum frame to carry the extra weight and make it more rigid...
please post pics if you go ahead!!!

It's pretty lightweight, I threw a Thule gutter rack on last year to carry my snowboard but I wasn't completely comfortable with that.
