The lack of side rail roof rack in the 2010 Outlander GT in the USA prevents to install a rack kit crossbar and a roof box for loading camping gear. Making some enquires I was told by the dealer that the side rail that comes with the 2010 Outlander XLS cannot be set up on the roof of a GT which is a big disappointment indeed. I was prepared to order the side rail roof rack (right/left) from a XLS (USA) and have it installed on the roof of a GT. I wonder if some members can throw some light on this problem. The dealer told me that only a custom aftermarket kit can be adjusted onto the floor of the GT at a price of $700. Does anyone have any more information on this?

The Outlander GT has that rubber (inserts) line on the carís roof that runs parallel on both sides? The side rail roof rack on the XLS has these rubber lines and it is there where the side rails are fitted. Reading the Maintenance CD for the Outlander with side rail roof rack in the Outlander the rubber gives way (equidistant little spaces) where bolts can be screwed and therefore the side rail roof can be fitted. The difference between the 2010 Outlander XLS and GT is that the GT doesn't have side rail roof rack which is a big disapointment. I think Australian 2010 Outlanders don't have this problem. Could some one give some comments in the feasibility of installing a XLS side rail roof rack in the roof a GT Outlander?

It looks like there are 3 mounting points on each side the GT, under the rubber strip, that if you have the oem roof rack, it will bolt right on. So yes in theory, it looks like you could have done what you wanted to do.. I am going to eventually get the rack for my 10 GT so I will find out for sure then..
