Would be needed for a roof top tent?  5x8 trailer. Going to use 1.5” square for the legs. 

Suggestion for size of cross bars and how many?  Thinking large smittybilt tent. Weight is about 220 lbs and then holds 3-4 people. So static weight of 800-1000 pounds. 

Stay with 1.5” for cross and do four? Or do 1” and do 6 crossbars?  

Any advice is greatly appreciated

In general with a 1.5" square tube No Weld Rack, I recommend two cross bars of 55-56" wide roof top tent and three for 72" wide
