I know the Outlander has fixed point braces on the rails. I'm looking at buying the crossbars, either the Mitsubishi ones or Thule (which might be the same thing anyway). However these run about $750 CAD. I'm curious if anyone has generic crossbars that clamp on (not to the fixed points), and if these are secure? They are much cheaper, like around $150 CAD. I'll be putting skis and snowboards on them. My equipment isn't high-end. I just don't want them to fall off or get stolen.

As a side note - I think all the crossbars, both OEM and not (but particularly the Mitsubishi and Thule ones), look rather ugly on the Outlander. They are so high and the towers are so tall. I prefer the side rails to be a little higher and the cross bars to be flush with the rails.

Yes - there are many universal fit roof bars that fit and work perfectly. I've got a set from Lidl that cost me £50 (about $80 Canadian). They seem fine with heavy loads (I've had a 3m long 3-section ladder on it).

Hi mbasjm,
What did you end up buying? Did you install and test them already?
Thanks

I don't know whether these are available in Canada/N. America, but these fit, and are a reasonable £85 UK Pounds.

If not, I'm sure there must be similar available over there.
