Folded F-Rib car storage

I recently acquired an F-Rib 330 to go with my Honwave T38. Whilst the F-Rib is smaller, it actually fits in my car less well than my Honwave T-30. Its more of a wider square shape when folded so takes up more space than the Honwave that can be packed right down. Its a struggle getting much else in the car.

Has anyone got any tips on car stowage of SIBS/F-Ribs? Id like to get it folded on the roof but its too heavy to lift solo. Wondering if you can get any side loading bars or something.

Car is a Seat Ateca so not particularly small.

Any tips are appreciated.

Ben

I suppose the question has to be... does the Frib have any benefit over the T38 to make the faff of getting it in the car worthwhile?

I have a Karitek sliding roof rack. It works great for me to get my 360 on the roof. Not cheap though!

I have since added an ally plate board to it with D rings attached for the straps.

Looks good and does the job, eye watering price though.


Perhaps use one of these for the F-rib?

I've looked at these. It baffles me how they can have 75kg dangling of a towbar head and remain stable! My Ateca doesnt have a towbar and getting one installed sounds a complicated job, programmig parking sensors etc.

These also look the job, but crazy money for how much it will be used.
