I suspect everybody who overlands with a roof rack has over-loaded it at some point.

I know I have, by a significant margin. I am not entirely sure what factors are used to calculate the dynamic roof load, but I do think they are very conservative.
What the insurance implications are, I don't know.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.
