Anyone know the roof carrying capacity of the new Fortuner? I chatted extensively to the Front Runner guys and they say the rack can take 150kg dynamic, 300 static, but no mention of the toyota specs.

We did do our last Botswana trip with 150kg on the rack, and had no issues despite pretty hectic 4x4'ing. But I have seen a number of posts along these lines recently, and I am changing the layout on my rack for a big Mozam trip we have planned, so want to plan appropriately.

150kg does hugely effect the handling of the vehicle, but it is only that heavy riiiiight after a fuel/water stop, then I drain the cans up top first.
