80Kg is the limit for the rails, the ramps are 55kg each....no worries with 3 scaffolding planks across the rails and no "lift" (hollow) or weight up high.

2 ratchet straps (4000kg) to strap them to the planks, a ratchet strap for each plank to the rail.

It's not the aspect of putting 110kg on an 80kg rated roof that concerns me, it's the road shocks - hit a pothole, for example - and you risk damaging the support areas for the roof rails.

20kg ?...really

add the odd 20kg, spread it over 3x30cm wide planks to spread the load over 6 contact points via roof rails.........and I thought Poms worried |:)

It'd be sticking out the end by a fair way if I put it in as far as it would go.
