Without going out and wrapping a tape around my crossbars I am going to guess that those clamps will not work that well. The bars are pretty big, and it looks like you would need to be unthreaded quite a ways to get those clamps to go on the bars.

As for the rack, I'm not familiar with it. I have the yakima rack.

That is the exact same one I paid $60 for at Overstock.com. Exact!
There is a post here on a search back in like April or May. Someone said it would rust out in 3 weeks. I have had it on for 13K miles no rust, and have had twice the weight on it for a trip or two. If you can just find it cheaper. It fits perfectly. But I had to modify the brackets with longer bolts, cost like $5 at hardware store. I'd buy same one again. MC

Both the one shown on "Prolineracks" and "Costco" looks very similar to the rack made by "Sportsrack" here in Canada.

The "Sportrack" is very sturdy, fits nicely on the X (with and lenght without extension). There are probably 20 of those in our Club. No complain so far.

How we use them:





See Ya!

Awesome links everyone. Thanks! Looks like the Coleman is one heck of a deal. Did the brackets work ok with our big ass oval crossbars?

Crap! I hate peer pressure. I had to order one of the Colemans after seeing this pic.

Arrived today! It's better than I thought, and the mounts were very similar to the mighty mounts that come with the Yakima Load Warrior.
Install took about 30 minutes. The mounts fit the cross bars with no problems at all. :cheers:
