We have ours mounted to a set of Thule bars which attach to the roll bars via the Thule mounts which were originall designed for the Nissan Xterra bars - works awesome and has been bullet proof for us! You could use a similar setup too...They work with round or square tubes since thery're rubber and have a wide range of movement for size...

Yea lot closer. Have high mount Yakima's on there now, just wondering if missing pieces or just drill through tent bottom to attach some device that will hold to bars? Tent bottom little flimsy, could screw/bolt plywood to it and then mount brackets?

I have an ARB tent and it has 2 channels mounted to the bottom of the tent base (floor). That channel is wide enough to hold bolt heads that can slide to different widths. You use 2 bolts and a piece of metal to attach to what ever you want to mount to. I can get a pick of mine in the am if you would like.
On my trailer, US mil, I had Wolf make up a frame like shown in your pic, at a height that I can use the bottom room that comes with the tent.
With this set up I can mount to the disco, 110, trailer, my ranger pick up or just about anything that will hold the weight....except the ground of course.

Finally got around to finishing trailer. Ended up running flat bar across hoops, adding plywood under tent (marine grade) then drilling through to brace. Easy on/off w tent and hoops allows trailer to haul dirt bikes and as it has locking brakes, manual, can dump firewood etc with it.

Trailer weighs just over 1,000 lbs and can be pulled around by hand easy enough w tent loaded in shop. Flipped tongue over so pintle level w truck as trying to keep stock look to it. That's the reason too for not swapping axle.
Had hyd tank mounted below that I removed but saved mounts in hope of finding a spare tire for it. (And likely adding 1/3 again weight)

Total thus far not including tent is just under $1k but hope to find spare so go up accordingly.

Any leads on spare wheel and tire appreciated.
9.00/16. Doesn't have to be Mohawk brand or 12 ply, just same size.
